Why I cannot add any add-ons on mozilla for android. I swear that I have correctly choose add-ons for android, not for windows, even I clicked the recommended one. But still, the add buttons for all of them are disabled. Is there any explanation or solution for this? thank you.

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!

Past versions of Firefox for android allowed me to automatically see sites in desktop view. I am no longer able to do that and it is a pain in the touche to manually set it for each site. I would prefer to use Firefox becauee of its security and privacy features. But between this issue and a VPN problem, I will use other browsers unless someone has a workaround. Please let me know, if so.

Using Firefox mobile 83.1

Any link opened from the start-page opens in a new tab. Once opened there is no back button in the browser to return to the start-page. What is strange is that the device back/return button works and returns you to the start page but there again any link opened goes to a new tab. The back button should ideally return to the start-page within the same tab, that is what the old firefox would do and what all other mobile browsers still do.

Another thing I feel pretty weird is that any link copied comes up as "fill link from clipboard". That is useful but the option stays even if the link is opened and even if firefox is closed. Basically as long as it stays in clipboard it keeps showing up.

Is these two behaviors expected in the new firefox. Let me know your opinions.

On Android if I opened the Share option and selected Firefox, it used to then display a little menu asking if I wanted to open the page in my mobile browser or send it to Firefox on my computer. This menu no longer seems to exist

If I go into the browser and try to share it, it gives me the "send to device" option but this is an extra step and I miss having the "send to device" option straight away. Is there a way to re-enable this?

Hi,

Our organization has issued Chrome Books as end points for all employees. We are getting pop-up while trying to download something. Instead we want to configure it in a way to auto-download files and open them once download completes. The article available in internet are for Windows OS but not far for Chrome OS.

Options in Chrome OS firefox seems to be limited when compared with Firefox for Windows. In Windows version of firefox, we are able to auto- download and auto-open files but not in Chrome Os. Can anyone help us ?

Hi! I'm looking for a way to remove the Android helper icon from the Firefox address bar (it lets me know the URL I have accessed can be opened in another app). I don't need it. I haven't found anything in the settings or anything obvious in about:config. The search functions here didn't return anything on this topic either - can anyone point me in the right direction?

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.

As the subject says. Every other app follows the theme change as it should. I can change manually but it doesn't happen when automatically. The device is a Samsung s10 with android 10.

This is more as a feedback than a question. But if I can fix it and it's only me, please say what I should do.

Thanks!
