I want to update my Firefox to the new version but the Google play shows that the latest version is version 68.11.0. Of course that's incorrect. In addition, my system is android 10. So I wonder what's the issue and how to solve it. Is this my only option to download apk file in third party store rather than in Google play? The picture below confirms the situation.

Hi

I have been using Dashlane and 1Password for the past year. I have recently switched to firefox and I immediately noticed that autofill is not reliable as a chromium-based browser like brave, chrome, Vivaldi. It is glitchy sometimes. At a time it not showing an autofill prompt for some website. For better understanding, I have dropped a Dropbox link. I have recently checked out ver 89.1.1 and still, the issues persist.

Comparing Firefox and Brave

Thanks Hoping for a fix.

Open Tabs, no add-ons to save externally, how do I extract the open tabs?

I have too many tabs to go through, too many to individually open in synched Mozilla desktop (this process is laborious as there is not a dedicated window for open tab management in synched devices, each time you click one of the synched open tabs it shuts the synchronized tabs box down so going through them all is not feasible, not to mention long as hell!

There is no longer tab management add-ons because Mozilla android is now being "curated" with Mozilla add-ons or something other. So I don't have a one stop solution which will help me to deal with these tabs.

What do I do? Is there a internal tab management system that I can access, copy the URLs to save in text format? This would help a lot. OR... Just let us use the normal add-ons, which you have left available for the desktop version... Like wth?

I greatly dislike the "save as PDF" feature, but since Firefox for Android gives me no other option, I've been using it to save webpages as long as I've been using Firefox for Android.

I don't seem to be able to find "save as PDF" in Firefox Daylight. When will you be adding that feature?

I am forced to use a different browser until you add that feature back. Thanks.

Downloading large file over WiFi (via 'Dowload link') shows no progress (% completed) and often fails in Firefox for Android leaving no traces in the Firefox Downloads list

Hi! Have been using Firefox for Android for years. Cannot solve the following issue: trying to download a large file over (slow?) WiFi displays no signs of a download in progress (except for WiFi activity indicator in the top panel) and nothing happens (no files in the download folder, no records in the Firefox downloads list). If I retry it sometimes works. If I start another browser (Samsung Internet) the download works fine. The device is Samsung Note 8 with the latest updates installed (Android 9). The problem does not reproduce over mobile data connection (4G internet mostly, faster than the WiFi connection I use). Firefox is 92.1.1 but I have seen the issue with all previous versions in the last couple of years.

Sample scenario to reproduce: 1. open https://echo.msk.ru/programs/observation/2909078-echo/ 2. tap and hold the download tab above the video 3. a popup windows appears with the https://cdn.echo.msk.ru/snd/2021-09-25-observation-1210-3532210.mp3 title, select "Download link" (is there any other way in Firefox to download the link?) 4. the popup window disappears and nothing seems to be going on... If I go to "3 dots" menu > Downloads the file is not listed there. 5. Sometimes the download does succeed. In this case I see a notification from the Download manager in the top panel which reads 2021-09-25-observation-1210-3532210(3).mp3 was downloaded where the '(3)' suggests the previous 2 attempts to download the file did try to create the file on the device! The file is about 63 MB.

Thanks, Dmitry

In general I am able to navigate to web sites and "Add to home screen", but one web site in particular that option disappears and seems to be replaced with "Install" That is "Breitbart.com". I can navigate to the page with no problem, but no "Add to home screen" option, and when I click the "Install" option, it created a home page link, but does not open the Firefox browser. It opens what looks like an app without browser options, but I do not have the app on my phone, so I suspect opening firefox in some limited form or opening a different browser. I have firefox set to default.

Whenever you update Firefox you're lead to a website that lists the changes. It also says you value feedback and recommendations. Yet I've found no way to give feedback, whether in the Android app, the desktop app nor on mozilla.org. I don't seem to be the only one judging by searching support.mozilla.org. Why don't you guys include a standardized way of giving feedback?

Firefox ecosystem is messed up

Hello, I've always been an advocate of Firefox and Mozilla foundation in general as I though it was a glorious project and mindset. However in recent years, I've seen more and more things done to the Firefox ecosystem that makes me more and more suspecious against privacy and true reasons of the existence of Mozilla Foundation.

Few years ago major update to Firefox broke thousand of extension compatibility, Firefox sync removed from selfhosted solution to force people creating an account inside Mozilla cloud (privacy means that I have no more confident in the mozilla cloud than I have in the on owned by Google or Amazon), then Firefox started to look always more to Chrome in its UI, And recently adding VPN, password manager, Pocket (what is it for anyway ?) and more and more features that look to me as a commercial grade to me but without seeing anything close to a business model. I have no problem with the Mozilla Foundation trying to make money without selling personnal data and selling services. BUT recently those has been more and more present and I feel like Firefox is always incentivizing me to buy buy buy buy ! Finally the recent upgrade to Firefox Mobile is Great BUT once again bloated with useless proprietary features and broke once more every extension that were making firefox mobile such a game changer in the smartphone ecosystem. I've converted several friend to it because it was awesome, and now in pure browser experience it's way better (thank you for the bottom url bar blackberry passport got it right 6 years ago already) but if you remove in mean time all of what was making Firefox mobile special in the mobile ecosystem and adding always more bloatware features... then Firefox Mobile is not better than Chrome and there's no reason to use it appart from I like the way Mozilla is handling privacy stuff... Or am I ?

Mozilla foundation I know my message sounds like a rant at you and it might be. Making money to pay for developers OK, but just sell a bloatware less feature Firefox with just what makes firefox nice : privacy, ease of use and amazing extension all over the place ! I'll pay for it 2€ a month just to get ride of all the s**** you're trying to sell as useless services.

I still love Firefox as a product, but Mozilla Foundation you're on the wrong track it's not by making things shinny and looking awesome that you're going to gain the glory you once had.

Also stop firing people like that !

I know I'm not the only one to think like that, we might be few of us, but Firefox users are fewer everyday... So you might try to keep the users that were using Firefox for a reason in the first place and capitalize on it instead of messing with people by removing features to include your own proprietary one.
