I would like to enable ESNI and bypass ISP watchdogs. So I prefer to keep ESNI on. After last update I'm not being able to access about:config. It shows an error.

What's the issue here, if anybody could help I'd be much obliged. Thank you.

Hello, I have been using Firefox for so long, and it's one of my favorite web browser on Windows as well as on Android. Firefox update for Android has become frustrating for many people including me, as most of the features aren't available in this new FF. One of them is about:config system settings, where i use to change some usefull features by going through that option. Sadly, this isn't available in the new update as of now. So, I would like to request you that please add this option as soon as possible in the coming updates. Another request would be, to be able to change the dns within the browser for using secure dns like DoH. As this option is available in desktop browser, i will be happy to get this option even on Android as well. Thank you.....

Is there a way to delete all saved logins and passwords in Firefox for Android at once?

I've managed to delete them all at once from Firefox for Windows 10, but for Android it seems like the only way is to delete logins one at a time and 3 taps per login.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

On my Android phone I cannot type in a URL and have Firefox take me there directly. Google (or some other search engine) sees and processes everything I type. On my desktop Firefox I can type a URL into the address bar without Google seeing it. (AFAIK.)

I don't want any search engine knowing a URL I type in. I want Firefox to drop it on the Internet to be resolved by the DNS.

Do I need to keep Chrome and Android System Webview updated even though I no longer use Chrome?? I'm a faithful user of Firefox For Android and I don't have any use for Chrome/ASW but I've never been 100% certain that I could leave chrome behind without updates. I'm in that long slowgoing breakup with Google Products but at the same time I want to be certain I'm not causing any harm or security issues with my devices while doing so. Thank you in advance for your time and help

Stop repetetive "Accept Risk" for mkcert SSL certificate?

In my dev laptop I installed an SSL cert using mkcert. Works fine in all desktop browsers. They don't even prompt to accept the "risk" and continue. But in my Android phone on the same LAN (with the dev subdomain in dns) I get that prompt from both Chrome and Firefox. That would be acceptable, except Firefox prompts pretty much every time I return focus to the app. It gets annoying having to click two extra buttons (Advanced then Accept Risk and Continue) for every code change that needs to be tested in all browsers.

Is there any way to make Android Firefox permanently accept the cert or any other solution?

Cannot access about:config on Firefox android. This seems to be an intentional action as there is an archived thread where other users had the same problem and Firefox did crikets and did not resolve the issue.

Without the ability to access about:config it is almost impossible to prevent browser hacks and spying through microphone and camera using the Firefox's always on webrtc due to this.

For anyone reading this search for "webrtc leaks" . Then read about the dangers of having webrtc on by default as Firefox does with impunity.

This needs to stop and it is a huge security hole.

Firefox developers needs to enable about:config so that users can switch off shouting vulnerabilities like this.

There has been threads before like this, but developers do nothing about this issue which is very very curious.

Should we believe they want to leave webrtc on permanently, knowing that it can be used maliciously as reported?
