How to collapse bookmarks folders on Android ?

Hello all,

I have my bookmarks synced between android and desktop. On my desktop, I have literally hundreds of folders and subfolders.

When i'm on Android, and want to save a bookmark in one of my folders, the list of all folders and subfolders show up expanded (uncollapsed).

When they are expanded, it is almost impossible to find the folder i need. I have to scroll down dozens of "pages" of folders and subfolders everytime I simply want to bookmark a page in the right folder.

Please see the image attached. This is only a tiny portion of the list. It goes on like that for dozens of pages.

Is there any solution for that ?

The simple solution would be that Firefox collapses all the folders by default, and when we click on one it expands. Basically what is done on most systems of folder/subfolders.

Kind regards,

Adrien

With collections, pocket and other innovations, I can't understand how Mozilla.org thinks one should use a web browser. An example is the lack of the ability to print to pdf. This is vital to preserve information before it has been altered to make it more politically acceptable to the powers that be. I've been using the Internet since 1990 and I'm struggling to follow the logic of Firefox for Android.

Maybe I didnt find the options yet, but if I would like to share a picture from for example Facebook, by press&hold on the picture > Share over WhatsApp, it doesnt send the picture but always an URL?

I would like to share the picture itself, otherwise I would share the link?

Using the lastest Firefox browser on my Samsung S20+, auto screen sizing cuts of text and makes the article unreadable. When I try to manually resize, it only zooms in, not out. Switching to Desktop Site is the only fix I've found. This problem doesn't occur when using the Chrome browser.

I've installed "Firefox for Android" on my Cell ph. I have android ver. 5.1.1 & Chrome is my default browser for my Android. The directions to make Firefox doesn't have the options shown in the instructions for Ver 5 or Lower, mor does any other Ver 6 & 7 show when looking at the directions which show go into Apps/All/Browser or Internet. Nothing shows "Browser" or "Internet". So therefore, I'm unable to make Firefox my Default Browser. If I go into App/Chrome the Default is not enabled [Showing the button as Chrome being Default. If I uninstall my Chrome Browser, I then lose all Favorite Links. I hate "Google as it seems to have created a monopoly on every darn Android which I feel should be considered illegal. I have a low end Android Ph & will not pay the exuberant [Rediculous] prices that are charged for Cell aphs. I wish Consumers would realize they're getting ripped off & quit waisting their money on Tech Items that are over priced & built in sweat slave Communists shops in China.

Good day! Dear Sirs, How I can stop downloading of the file from the opened page? I have started to download the pdf file from opened page of a site. I have confirmed the download by Mozilla Firefox. The downloading has begun and has reached the 99% of the volume according to the announcement of my phone and the push-notification. I use Android. But after that the volume of downloading remains on the same level of 99% of the file. The push-notification/ announcement of my android phone shows that downloading continues and doesn't finish! What does it mean? What is the problem? And what can I do or should I do in order to stop the process of downloading? Please, help me! Thanks in advance! Kindest regards! Alexander

I either can't sign into accounts like email or eBay or have to try several times by refreshing and things like that. Some accounts I can't get into it all unless I use Chrome. I don't have this trouble at all on Chrome but don't want to use it if I don't have to.

Hello, I reinstalled the Firefox application, I wanted to log into my account but forgot the password, decided to restore it, reset the password, logged in and synchronized, but the synchronization did not give any results, all passwords and bookmarks disappeared. I saw a warning that each password is attached to a specific account and some data may not be restored, but I did not think that ALL data would be lost. Is there no way to bring them back? Thank you.
