First and foremost I am trying to find the homepage. I have read articles on how to set the homepage but the images don't look like my Android app. I will attach screenshots I have my settings and nowhere does it say anything about home. Any ideas of how to set a homepage so that I will have one place to go to when I first start when I open Firefox that would be awesome cuz right now I don't like the way it set up. it takes me to my account page and I can't do anything.

My next question is tabs. I don't see anything about opening a new tab or setting a new tab so any information on that would be most appreciative.

Thanks for anyone who will assist.

I'm trying to watch video on my Android (Fairphone 3) in Firefox. I get an error message saying that DRM is not enabled and I need to add Widevine Content Decryption Module.

Widevine Content Decryption Module is not available in the Addons/Extensions when I search for it.

I Google it, advice says go to Options/Preferences to enable. Neither Options nor Preferences are in the menu on my android device.

I cannot fine any youtube videos, screen shots or advice on where the Preferences/Option I am supposed to got to to enable/disable Widevine actually is on an Android.

I have clicked the three dots in the top right and been through EVERY menu option in there several times as I wonder if I am loosing my mind. Help please.

Hi, I'd like to use Firefox on my Android tablet in landscape mode. The "tablet mode" should list the open tabs on the top of the screen. This is not showing.

Supposedly setting the screen size (dpi) in Android developer options to a high value should help. I've tried this but it doesn't make a difference. I've tried both Firefox and Firefox Nightly.

Several screenshot are attached. One of them is of Chrome with a row of tabs on the top of the screen.

Hello!

I'm currently using Firefox nightly for Android, simply for the reason of installing custom add-ons, rather than having to choose from the given list.

I've followed this guide so far: [https://www.ghacks.net/2020/10/01/you-can-now-install-any-add-on-in-fi...]

And I've added the 3 extensions I need at, by signing in with this very Firefox account: [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../collections/]

My problem is when I attempt to add a custom Add-on collection, it asks me: Collection owner (User ID) What is my User ID? How do I add my custom collection so I can use my own add-ons? Apologies in advance if this is a silly question and I'm missing something obvious.

Hi, I have an issue with the key board. The space bar is a problem. When I click in some boxes, the size of the space bar changes. This results in me putting a period instead of a space. This is especially problematic if I am trying to put search terms into the address bar in firefox. I try to put a space, but a period is inserted instead and this results in firefox seeing it as a url instead of search terms. It is a great deal of trouble to then try and correct it and it is very frustrating. Can you allow me to disable the behaviour of the keyboard where it changes the key layout? Keyboard layout should not change, it works against human habitual behaviour. I cant type reliably if the key layout keeps changing. This does not happen with some other keyboards such as hackers keyboard. I spoke to samsung and they claimed to have no control over it, saying that firefox is the responsible party in this case. Thanks, Jessica.

On my S7 with Android 8.0, every time I start Firefox (even after rebooting the phone), it loads the previous session's pages. In several places I have read that I should click on the three bar menu icon in the top corner and select "options". I have a 3 dot (not bar) icon. When I click on it, I get a menu that includes "settings" but there is no "options". The menu I do get has, "New tab, New private tab, History, ... Settings, Help"

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
