I don't understand -- the attached screenshots show my Android FF Settings for tabs & erasing data when I "quit" FF. When I "quit", and then open FF again, my tab(s) are still there. After I "quit" FF, I was expecting to open FF and see a blank/home page. What setting am I missing so that everything is erased & I open FF to a blank/home page ?

Several years ago, Mozilla and Firefox users could store and update their logins locally from the browser. Both Google Passwords and Firefox Lockwise have become irritants, since they "crash" frequently for both Linux desktop and Android phone users. The annoyances seem to be lessening with time; they are still frustrating. I continue to miss the power of managing my login data without having to visit or connect to a cloud. I understand that it's the wave of the future, but the Internet experience begins with the user, who is local. Firefox was a lot more friendly and fun back them. It makes me homesick for those sweeter days.

Hello,

In about:config, I changed the value of the following:

dom.popup_allowed_events (empyting the value in order to block all popups) tls.version (change to 4) network.trr.mode (change to 3) network.security.esni.enabled (change to true)

FYI, I have my Firefox already set up like this in both Windows 10 and Ubuntu, and I'm able to open webpages. But after setting it up on Android (4.3 and 7.0, both running Firefox 68.7.0), I could not open any webpage despite being well-connected to a WiFi. It displays the "Server not found" message. "Firefox can't find the server the server at www.google.com.

1. Check the address for typing errors... 2. If you are unable to load any..."

Is there a solution to this?

Thank you!

I know that Firefox asks for permissions for each website that I visit (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-firefox-android-use-permissions-it-requests) However I often visit the same few websites and I have to tell Firefox to grant permissions each time. Is there a way to tell Firefox to "remember" that I granted a permission and to always grant it again w/out asking me?

bold textI have two devices. A mac and Android phone, both running firefox. Both are logged into the same account and kept in sync.

So how come without making any changes I sometimes find my phone not filling in the login form for paypal? Usually it is fine, but sometimes it is as if it forgets what it knows. The phone says it just synced with my account. If it happens when I am away home, I cannot login to paypal. How can this happen?

Until today, whenever I used Firefox on Android to access sites requiring login, the login credentials always prefilled. While that might be obsolete technology, I liked it.

Now, Firefox for android has been upgraded, enhancing the system by continuing to prefill login credentials, except www.patreon.com

I realize this is ingenius, but the benefit is something I have been unable to figure out, which is why I am here instead of sleeping.

The links at the start of this quetion lead to screen shots from Android, which I could not upload from Android, but I was able to hack them into this question by sending the android screen shots to a computer, from which I was able to upload the pictures and thereby complete my hack, by linking to tghe uploaded files.

I have reason to believe the images linked above might possibly provide clarification of the nature of my problem, in the event you look at them.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

p.s. Regarding the version of Firefox I am running, I followed instructions for checking for updates on android firefox. The way it works is it says there are no updates but it does not say what version I have. That is an excellent way to minimize exposure to end users what version they are running. It just makes me wonder why you ask what version I am running, since that information is not available so far as I know.

Hello,

I've noticed that it's easy to turn off the request for notifications and location on desktop Firefox but I can't figure it out on on mobile, is there a way to do this?

A big reason I switched from Chrome was websites constantly asking for notification and location requests and not being able to turn it off indefinitely.
