I want to update my Firefox to the new version but the Google play shows that the latest version is version 68.11.0. Of course that's incorrect. In addition, my system is android 10. So I wonder what's the issue and how to solve it. Is this my only option to download apk file in third party store rather than in Google play? The picture below confirms the situation.

I have some suggestions about firefox for android. But I don't konw how to deliver it. I have found a similar question which was posted several years ago and I got this link: https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/FirefoxInput/. But I can't find any way to contact Firefox except reporting program issues in the brand new Firefox browser. Two questions: 1. Is this link still works? I mean do Firefox staff really read everyone's feedback there and consider it seriously? 2. Are there any way by which I can contact Firefox staff directly? For example by email. Thanks for answering.

for the awful piece of garbage being passed off as an update to what was once the best browser around?

This pos is wrong in soooo many ways and the patronising statement that Mozilla is 'listening" is just an insult.

Downgrading isn't an option because previous versions aren't available. Windows yes, Android no. That must be because no one would stay with the latest version, so we're forced to stay with it. NOT Me. After 20 years I'm dumping Firefox. This latest version is crap and I'm not willing to settle for reduced productivity or ease of use out of blind loyalty. I had to install Opera to do something that FF couldn't. It's faster than FF, less page conflicts, shares bookmarks between devices and is far better than the crapgrade that is FF80.1.x - far better.

The best thing is for Mozilla to go bust, that way there's a chance that whoever buys the remains realises that satisfying customer needs rather than their own weird ideas is what's important.

Maybe if enough readers vote for this post it'll send a message that this crapgrade isn't fit for use and is hated. They would do well to abandon it and reinstate the previous version, but that would mean admitting their mistake, and Mozilla has never done that, preferring instead to brainwash us that we'll like it when we're use to it. Bull.

Time is running out. Market share has fallen consistently and the competition has improved whilst FF has deteriorated. This crapgrade could be the straw that breaks it. It is for me. I'm importing my bookmarks into Opera and configuring it on desktop and Android. Sadly, after being with FF since the beginning (at work and home) and with Netscape Navigator before that, it's the end of the road for me. The world needs a variety in apps, but whatever this one has to offer, the price is too high.

When I open a new tab and then try to switch back to a previous tab the previous tab is obscured by a blank page. I can drag the page down slightly to see part of the underlying tab but if I release it it covers it up again. Anyone else have this problem?

I'm not sure what category this falls under. I feel stupid, this seems like it should be real obvious, but I don't see a way to get to the homepage. There's no little house icon, nothing in the pulldown menu, and I can't fimd info about it. Has it always been this way and I'm just now noticing it? I've been using the Collection feature, but can't go to those sites if I can't get to the homepage.

I am sorry to be asking a question that makes my ignorance so obvious, but I have to admit I am totally stumped on the captioned topic.

I am in the total habit of opening the Firefox Inspector either by holding down the CMD and OPTION keys while striking sharply, but without excessive force, the I key, or, in a futile effort to maintain flexibility, I have made a point of practicing the Inspector Open operation by selecting Tools from the FireFox menu, then taping the item marked Inspector, found faithfully awaiting my call everytime I seek its services in the location.

Since this is a Firefox for Android thread, you no doubt by now know my problem. Neither of those vastly different procedures can be carried out on at least some Androids, and as luck happens to have decreed, my Android is among those without a way I can find to open the FireFox Inspector.

If by chance you are in possession or have been honored with custody of the information that can be used to open the inspector on an Android phone, providing that information to me will make my life whole and complete where it now is in a wasteland in the great state of bewilderment.

How to open inspector when FireMyFox is operating in association with Android and Glazer Red Herring Production Corporation.

P. S. I believe Glazer plays no signicant role as per se duprea.

Thank you

When I click the Share symbol on Youtube videos Forefox no longer has a "copy link" function, instead it offers me a dozen different ways to share the video that aren't relevant.

If I want to paste a youtube link or imbed a video onto a forum, I have to click on share, text message it to myself, and then copy and paste the link from the message.

This is insane. Just let me copy the link like it used to.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Ive never had these issues prior to newest update. Also no issues with my samsung internet browser which is slowly becoming my default and prefered app. This happens using both phone hand held or Dex App mode.

I've noticed that the number of collections is limited to only 20. That low number itself is a pity. But adding the 21st and in consequence delete the oldest one from the 20 I don't understand and don't accept. Could you please issue an error message and state that a further collection is not possible due to having reached the maximum of 20. I should add that I noticed that behavior before I've registered for a Firefox account. Maybe people with and without an account are treated differently.

Best regards, Frank

Greetings, about week or more ago whenever I would open Firefox two instances would pop up and to fully close Firefox I would have to exit out of both. While it is a rather small inconvenience having to swipe twice to fully quit the app it's slowly becoming more annoying especially when I am going through my open apps and two Firefox browsers get in the way of me finding the app I need or when I am trying to look at something from another open app quickly. Any help would be appreciated. I have a Pixel 3a running Android 11 and Firefox is updated to the most recent version. Also, I do not have any add-ons or pluggins. I have included a screen shot of what it looks like Thank you!
