I'm a bit of a privacy freak, so I'm using my own password manager, not Firefox's built-in service. I have it synced on my Android phone, and my password manager app works well with Android's own "Autofill Service", i.e., in various apps and browsers, when I click on a field that looks like a username or a password, a small window pops up, offering me to autofill this credential field using my password manager. This feature works well with the Chrome for Android browser, but sadly it does not work reliably with Firefox for Android. I occasionally see the popup appear for a blink, but then it disappears quickly, and more often than not, it doesn't pop up at all. I wonder what is special in Firefox that breaks this very convenient feature.

Any help would be appreciated.

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.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 ( SM-T505), new 2020 with Android 10.

This is as follows ( N.B this is quite annoying/frustrating):

1. If I choose other language than the factory recomended in wich country you bought the device in. For an ex If you are asked to choose Swedish ( for tablet bought in Sweden), but If you choose English either UK or US the device thinks that you are in either UK or US. According to the search results wich will guides you to sites from this countries.

2. That If you choose other language than the factory recomended,and add multiple languages Firefox gets nuts. Besides that Firefox constantly crashes( will get back to startmenu), closes down tabs. But whats most annoying ( bug or lack of compatiblility) is that the device constantly will aut change my input language to the next upcoming in the list. As I would describe it that the layout ( input language) will be changed to for an ex English layout insted of Swedish. But at the same time If I will delete all of the existig input languages,and just keep my native keyboard layout it works fine.

3. That many sites constantly crashes,and that I can't add myself to many social media sites( not such as FB,Twitter. Since I don't have any account at this platforms). I will also get error messages when a site has capture codes. Wich will result that I can't add myself there. 4. If I ask for Desktop version Firefox thinks that I'm using Linux. Note that all sites will work fine,but better than the standard mobile ver. 5. That Firefox at many Tablets from Samsung ( but since I only have exp with Samsung devices) have poor compatiblity to many webmail services. I myself know that protonmail works badly. Since non of the functions that I have at a regular Pc works. It's both when I will open an existing mail, but at the same time when I will add a new mail it's where my issues are most. What will hapend is that nearly the whole screen will be covered with the keyboard,and that neither of the basic functions ( such as formating text) will work.

5. I' ve also noticed that the keyboard have a bad respons, and that the device interpetate my sweep gesters over the screen that I will flip scren mode ( to a vertical instead of horisontal mode). But at the same time if I lock my screen to a horisontal mode it works better.

6. As an average Firefox ( to my device) have a bad compatiblity to many sites. But at the same time Firefox for a regular PC( either Win 7,8,10) works better.

7. That Firefox installed at my device have non of the other functions that I have for my regular Pc is compatible( that I can change functions such as cookies etc)

8. Every time when I update to a newer ver firefox aut deletes all of my bookmarks ( saved online websites). Why isn't it possibel to have an option to save them ( manualy delete),or save them to a memorycard or different folder.

9. Why isn't it possibel as it was in previous ver to just download a specific lang ver. For an ex English (UK or US). Since I know that the most stabel versions are English ( in particular UK). My point is that why should Firefox follow the device set language. For myself I'm more used to english computer softwares rather than Swedish. Why isn't is possible to have an option to an advanced ( custom install).

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!

I have Adobe PDF viewer installed and it works fine from all other apps but if I open downloads folder in firefox and try to open PDF file, firefoxs insists me to install Office Suite free in order to view the file. If I navigate to same folder with folders app I can open it with Adobe Reader, and it is actually defaulted to that reader. PDF's worked fine with firefox also week or couple weeks ago but not anymore. How can I fix this without installing Office Suite free?

Hello,

Looking through https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Learn/Forms/Form_validation Firefox supports native HTML5 form validation.

In Windows 10 desktop Firefox, trying to submit the form under https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Learn/Forms/Form_validation#the_required_attribute without entering anything in the input field would show the message "Please fill out this field" as expected.

But testing on Android Firefox mobile 85.1.2 it does not show the error message. Is this a bug? Or known issue or just not a feature for Android Firefox?

However, testing on iPhone Firefox, it does show the error message.

Thank you.
