The new Firefox for Android version 79.0.5, why was it released from Beta with only nine extensions, and no way to search for more?

I know there are a lot of people, who never add a extension. But most of us get one or more extensions. I really like searching for them. I install them one at a time, and test them. If they crash Firefox, I go back and let them know, and they fix it. Also when you go to install a extension, it says which versions of Firefox it is compatible with. As this new version has been in beta for about a year there should be a lot more than nine extensions available for me to test. There should be so many by now that it should have its own search page separate from the old Firefox for Android search page. But you let it come out of beta with only nine recommended extensions, and no search page, and no way for me to install the extensions that I like to use, to test if they will work with the new version. So for now I have to wait for how many updates, before I get a update that has a link to a search page for the new Firefox for Android Extensions. Then I can search for my favorite extensions and find out if they say they are compatible with this version, then I have to test them! you guys are really being slow about this!

I am appalled that I had to create ANOTHER freaking useless account just to post feedback here. I don't want a Firefox account. I don't collect web sites. I don't want you to suggest web sites. I don't want you to save my passwords. I don't want you to autofill my fields. I don't want to store anything in the "cloud" (aka someone else's computer). I don't want to sync anything across multiple devices. I don't want my browser to access my microphone, camera, contacts, location, or anything else except the damned internet. I don't want my browser to choose ANYTHING for me. I just want it to do what I tell it to. And do it well.

I WANT TO SET MY OWN HOME PAGE. I want my browser to be able to load web sites. I want my browser to be able to play videos. I want my browser to be able to upload and download files. I want my web browser to be functional and fast. Lightweight, small footprint, mobile friendly. I don't want it to be a data repository, or a personal assistant, or a password vault, or a crutch, or a tracker, or another THING that I have to manage.

This applies to both desktop and mobile.

I want Firefox to be the lean, mean, browsing machine like it was when it first burst onto the scene.

HOME. PAGE.

Firefox for Android can't seem to find its internal PDF viewer in its recent versions.

The expected behavior should be, when opening a PDF file from any source, to prompt the user for the app they want to open it with when a default isn't set (works as intended) with apps such as Firefox, Chrome, Google Drive's native viewer, among other possibilities. When the disk path to the file is entered into the address bar, Firefox should automatically open the file natively.

The actual behavior is that all *but* Firefox is listed in the prompt, nor can I it be found in the device settings. It is reasonable that it's an issue with Android, so I will open a thread with Google as well. When the disk path to the file is entered into the address bar, the user is incorrectly asked to download the file again. (???)


Firefox Daylight 83.1.0 (Build #2015776401) AC: 63.0.9, fc54c566e GV: 83.0-20201112153044 AS: 63.0.0


Samsung Galaxy A11 Kernel version: 4.9.186 Android 10 One UI Core 2.1

This bug is very disconcerting; Being able to do it all from the browser was one of the biggest things I loved about Firefox for mobile, particularity with reading PDFs; it was the only reason I switched from the Google default!

Firefox for Mobile needs to sync Collections too.

My wife typically trusts me to make the tech decisions in my household, and is fine with using and supporting Mozilla and Firefox. Overall, she likes the new Mobile Firefox too, as do I.

She's a typical Tab Hoarder kind of user. On her last phone, I introduced her to Collections. Much easier to use and get to than Bookmarks, easy to understand, good at helping her control the immense amount of tabs she otherwise has open. She basically fell in love with the feature.

A few days ago she got a new phone. We still have her old one, but the screen is 1/3 cracks and it no longer holds a charge well. "Well loved", for sure.

Install Firefox on new phone --> sync over her stuff --> all good... Well, wait... Where are her collections with her hundred-or-more tabs in them for various stuff?

Turns out they don't sync?

I've been helping her manually move over the tabs from the collections on her old phone to the new phone, but I feel *extremely* lucky we still have the phone. If she'd lost her phone instead, that would be quite the amount of time she'd spent getting acquainted with and using this feature just to find it doesn't save anywhere.

This was all essentially written as a real-life use-case, for the following plea:

Please, *please* add Collections to what is able to be synced with the Firefox Sync feature.

Hello,

This problem exists for quite some time now. Sometimes when I download a PDF file, i cannot open it in Adobe acrobat via Firefox download "open". When i tap on "open" Firefox says there is no PDF viewer installed or it cant open the file. Although the viewer is installed and sometimes it works as it should. But some PDF files cant be opened. When I access them through my file manager i can open them without any problem.

Firefox Daylight on an up to date Samsung S10e. But same problem on Xiaomi Mi9 SE or Galaxy Tab S6 lite.

The amount of time I have spent trying to get firefox to accept my CA, I could've used to make my own browser.

1. Downloading the pem version with firefox is a myth. (tested with v85 & v86beta) 2. Security-enterprise-roots-enabled is a windows thing, NOT android (tested with v86beta). 3. Decoding the APK reveals that firefox does not even have this: <certificates src="user"/> 4. The builtin certificates are hardcoded into native library, and replacing one with mine does not work (suspected cert pinning) 5. The button "Accept the Risk and Continue" is the last straw it does not work.

Does firefox really support custom Root Certificates on Android? if so how?
