I'm using the Telstra App( Australian Phone company) to buy more pre-paid credit and when i click pay PayPal it gives me a pop up box that says "Select "window" in your toolbar to find log in to your PayPal account" and it opens FF but it just sits on my home page and doesn't open PayPal, it use to open the PayPal app, but i figured Telstra changed something in their app that now forces it to open my default browser. so i figured I'd try here and see if this message make any sense to anyone, I have google it but no results point to where to find the toolbar it talks about.

I usually view websites in landscape. However, when switching between portrait and landscape, firefox seems to refresh the page. This is a problem between browsing sessions, where I just want to continue where I was at. I may be 1/2 way down a page, exit the browser, come back to it a couple of hours later.

The app will start in portrait and then change to landscape. During this process, the page refreshes twice and when it finishes reloading, I will be on a different position on the page and have to find my way back to where I was reading.

So... I want to force firefox in landscape mode to prevent this problem. However: 1. There seems to be no menu item to allow this. 2. A web search says this is available in about:config, but about:config seems to have been disabled a couple of years ago.

Can anyone help with how to force Firefox for Android in landscape?

Hi all, I've set up proxy auto configuration with wpad. And it's working, but not in every case: On my android (version 10) phone I can enter in the advanced options the "Proxy Auto-Config" with a PAC URL. This works, but only for Chrome. When I use Firefox, the proxy is not used. Any Idea why this is the case and how this could be resolved?

I also downloaded the nightly build. With about:config I can set the network.proxy.autoconfig_url. There I added the PAC URL. But the browser still don't use the proxy. Any idea how to make this working?

Cheers

I use the Keepass2Android password manager on my Samsung S9+ smartphone. For some time now (6 months perhaps) the pop up window from Keepass2Android for filling in usernames and password fails to appear. Sometimes it appears briefly and then disappears. I have contacted the Keepass2Android developers and they say it is a problem with recent versions of Firefox for Android. Keepass2Android does work OK with other Android browsers (like Chrome, Edge, & Samsung internet browsers).

Are there any suggestions or solutions?

I have a Lenovo Yoga Tab 2 running Android 5.1 but Chrome no longer provides updates. If Firefox will continue to service 5.1 I would like to switch but I am not happy to disable Chrome and I am not sure whether force stop is the best approach. At present I have both installed. Would I see differences in the way that other apps perform if I make a switch ?

i find it absurd and self-contradictory of Mozilla to only have firefox available through "google play store". This fact makes mozilla's claims of "privacy ethics" FALSE ADVERTISING.. I think that firefox SHOULD NOT EVEN HAVE GOOGLE AS A SEARCH ENGINE. In my opinion, Mozilla SHOULD NOT INCLUDE GOOGLE AT ALL; OR STOP CLAIMING THEY PROVIDE PRIVACY WHILE NAVIGATING THE INTERNET....(Needless to mention that any link to google is like a parasite's tentacle feeding off every users privacy...typical "typical catch /22": if a user wants to use even a megabite google's services....one must sacrifice our priceless

I'm using Firefox 93 on Macbook air and Firefox 93.2 on Android 11 (Samsung S10). I’ve synced all passwords and logins and can view them on both devices. ‘Autofill in Firefox’ and ‘Autofill in other apps’ are both on. But, when logging in to apps on the Samsung, autofill doesn’t work. Even if I fill in my email address, there is no password suggestion. Instead, a small dropdown message appears: ‘unlock Firefox’. It isn’t active, and doesn’t open anything when I tap on it. Result: I have to go looking for the passwords and fill them in manually. I hope there’s a solution. Thanks for your help

Whenever you update Firefox you're lead to a website that lists the changes. It also says you value feedback and recommendations. Yet I've found no way to give feedback, whether in the Android app, the desktop app nor on mozilla.org. I don't seem to be the only one judging by searching support.mozilla.org. Why don't you guys include a standardized way of giving feedback?

Why has the option to print STILL not been added back in? (January 2022, version 96 for Android) Why was it removed to begin with? Seems like a key feature for a lot of people. No plugins or add-ons for it either. Once I switch, I won't be back.

I received a text message today saying it is from Chase Bank and directing me to open a website. I have no account with Chase Bank and wanted to report this to you and forward it to you but I have no idea how to do that. Is there any way to send this to somebody so they can investigate it or should I just block it (if I can), then delete it?
