Hi. Everytime I try to download torrents or their magnet links I get this following error message.

'This file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action. Please install an app, or if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Apps Settings page.'

- BTW, I already have Bittorrent installed.

My Firefox mobile has been unresponsive to Instagram links ever since at least the latest update. Tapping the 'Open in app' option in a new tab with the IG link does not bring up the app. Tap and hold on the link to bring up options panel does not show the 'Open in external app' option like before. Please look into this.

Hello, when i dowload a pdf file with my Samsung A71 and want to open it, i don't get acrobat as a proposition to download it. Instead i get a proposition of applications which are useless for this purpose like garmin connect, stocard etc. I search on the internet but didn't find any solution. I would be grateful for your help as i really would like to stay with firefox instead of using Samsung internet where i don't have this problem.

Add-on active in temp window but cannot access it

I have Firefox set as my default browser on my Pixel phone running the latest security update from Google. When I click a link that opens in app, it gives me a temporary window/browser for just use with that app. This is how it should work. My problem comes in with my use of NoScript and it doing it's job (often leaving the page unable to load,) but I have no access to the addon to ok any scripts without transferring the whole thing to the primary browser, which to me is self-defeating. I currently have NoScript set to run in both private and regular tabs. Is there a way to access the add-ons from that temporary window browser? OR Is it only running in it because I have it set to run in private tabs as well?

This is as much a question as it is feedback from someone who is running Firefox as my primary browser on Android.

Thanks for your time, Damon

So I'm looking for a smoother way to migrate Firefox data when switching phones. I love the collections function, would love to see this added to account sync. Is it possible to save these to account? Also, for synced tabs, would be extremely helpful to select multiple tabs to open at a time. One by one gets old for 200+ tabs. Any other ideas?

Hi, I found firefox beta the one and only bnowser on Android where I can change the viewport width and thus look at very wide webpages (e.g. scientific) that are designed for laptops. But how can I make a screenshot of such a webpage? That is, not only capture what is actually on the screen in the moment, but the entire webpage. But I really must do this in Firefox Beta, because if I cannot set the viewport width to somet0ing extrawide, then the website will open in a distorted way. I spent a lot of time going through not only the firefox beta menu, but also the settings and the config about page of firefox beta and I am lost. Googling for an hour, I saw that "firifox light" on Android does have a screenshot icon that provides exacly this functionality. Any ideas why this is not there in firefox beta for Android? Or any ideas for a workaround?

Thanks!!

When one opens a new tab the animated purple switch button shows up for a moment. But it only works if you click on the word switch at the right side of the button. This can be awkward when holding the phone with the left hand on a big screen.


It would be good if you could press on the middle of the purple button. This way or doesn't matter which button you use.
