This is for my Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G: today is Monday, 2022.07. 25.1401.CDT I cannot get the microphone on android mobile Firefox[Version is labelled "Direfox Daylight, version 102.2.1 (Build # 2015891003]. The fix of turning "Show Voice Search" on under 'Search', under "Settings" has no impact: in fact I found "Show Voice Search" was already checked, and the microphone DOES NOT WORK?

I have Grammarly kb set, and wondered if other kb options as alternates but not active, like Gboard, the Samsung, Google or speech to text options, or known add-ons, etc. can be blocking my microphone? With this android mobile Firefox there is no option of entering "about..... Microphone" or other command line options do not work entered on this version of Firefox, what to do? I want the microphone "on" by default if possible as I was just dxed with Adult-onset or Type II diabetes, doing 5 finger sticks each day for my blood glucose: both fingers n thumbs every 2 days: my fingertips are so sort, even using a stylus, my kb entries have errors 50% of my attempts.

What is "Firefox Daylight"? A version for Android?

Are there other modifyiers for Firefox, like addons, or other Firefox modifying supplements like "site to ask permission for microphone" that are known to interfere or block microphone activity?

Firefox Default Seach Engine

I would like to change the default Firefox "Android" search engine to a custom URL settings for DuckDuckGo.

I have dark mode set for my phone(S21) Firefox won't let me block websites access to this user string. I believe this is a huge privacy concern and would like an option to spoof this, as to not break websites. Currently that is not an option, and without access to about:config I can't make a work around.

So this gets me back to DuckDuckGo, and because I clear my cookies often, and the Android version does not have Compartments, I need a work around. Like a lot of websites DuckDuckGo reads my theme and changes it to Dark mode. There is a custom setting, and I have a custom URL but Firefox won't let me change it to this custom URL

https://start.duckduckgo.com/?kae=-1&kak=-1&kal=-1&kao=-1&kaq=-1

Please help, as I love Firefox, but God dam does it make me angry with all the bugs, and Mozilla's current philosophy of streamlining the Android version.

P.s. Google (I assume) has once again changed the user agent for Firefox Android, and I have had enough, and wanted to change back to Duck, but Dark Mode really irritates me on most websites. I really don't get why everything has to be so frigging hard, if you don't accept the status quo.

[email address] was my verry first and only email address that i signed up with and made full usee of what i could do individualy and figure out as time goes on ...Until my phone got stollen and i ended up losing only number that it was linked with..now more drama is password and the security question are both a bit of a heartache and deep stresses..because i make use of my email address on basicaly evrry social networking site that im following or participate in almost made it worse and could've been worse coz i nearly forgot about backup and atleast im now more careful unlike before where i realy didn't expect something so deep and really almost beyond any kind of repair or chance that i probably could get it back.. And im guessing me struggling in the way that i did.that someone who's IT skilled and definitely equipped with enough knowledge is going to be needed..And how i deeply wish and pray that someone can renew my faith by doing something that a number of guys with so called IT experience who kinda breaged about it were all stuck and xualy shocked coz it sounded easy until they themselves were speechless..atleast there's one guy who says there is a way. That is why i chose to ask whoever doesnt matter for their help and info please guys anyone who is willing to be kind enough to help..i would really appreciate and Definitely help wont be be in vain..a blessing towards someone who helps others is rightfully earned...

Hi there! I have a new S22+, all systems up to date. I'm logged into Firefox on both the Android and on my Mac Air.

Last time I migrated to a new phone, Sync filled in all my passwords on the phone. This time I'm having to copy and paste all the passwords; Samsung autopass (or whatever it's called) offers to fill them in, but of course doesn't have those passwords anyway.

What do I need to tweak or do differently to get the passwords to fill in?

A recent update (v102) to Firefox for Android has broken "search browsing history". Before, I was able to type "tw" and see a list of ~20 Twitter results from my browsing history, arranged by frequency of visit; now, it only shows one. Is this new behaviour a deliberate change (if so, it's really bad compared to the ease of usability of the feature previously - please revert it!) or a bug?

Hello. I have been having this problem for a while now. When I enter an address in an existing tab with a :port number at the end of the website address and press the RETURN key the browser does nothing. You can see this issue in the video below. Video will expire on 12th september 2022 https://files.fm/f/xm2mxb829 Only way for me to enter an address with a port is to use an older website link from history or send tab from my desktop through ff sync.

Is there something wrong with my device or is it the browser. Im using firefox for android 102.2.0 on android 10

Ever tried to download a file through firefox and then pause it to resume it after sometime and end up having the rest of the file being downloaded in an instant but upon opening realise the file has been corrupted. I am facing this issue like so frequently it has become like a norm that pausing a downloading file will give a corrupted one for sure. And please note that other browsers don't reproduce the issue infact the links are pause supported in all aspects

With the removal of a 'speed dial' from the recentish big update of Firefox for Android I thought I could use the Shortcuts (on the somewhat limited homepage options) to do the same job.

But these don't seem to sync with Firefox for Windows and there's no Shortcuts option in the sync menu. I switch between two platforms a lot and having those shortcuts sync is really important as I add pages for looking at at different times on different devices.

I *know* I could use bookmarks, but that's another couple of clicks every time I want to go to a webpage - over the course of a day that could be hundreds.

It's used to be possible to have a syned homepage in Firefox for Android. It's still possible in Vivaldi, Opera & Brave. But I'd like to use Firefox.

Anyone any info on how I can sync the homepage Shortcuts across Firefox for Android and for Windows?

Or is there another way of having a synced speed dial-style homepage on Firefox on different platforms?
