So does fire fox just not give a shit whether the app is usable? You've completly stripped.any ability to customize and disable useless "features" that maybe 5% of user want. Are you just trying to go out business? How about returning control to the user. How about reading the app feedback and actually responding to users instead of ignoring us.

I am not sure this is the right forum to be asking all of the questions below but .. I am starting here and will be guided by your feedback if only some questions can be answered here.

All my questions pertain to Firefox Nightly on Android. 101.0a1 (Build #2015874793) It is my hope that the Q&A might help other users of Firefox Nightly on Android.

  1. (generic) Where will I find discussion of or documentation (specifications, user manual, usage notes, self-documenting source code, etc.) for the various Firefox settings accessible via about:config ?
  2. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.volume_scale setting?
  3. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.default_volume setting?
  4. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled setting?
  5. (generic) Is it reasonable to expect that a browser be able to determine either the RMS or Peak loudness of the src for a media element and mute (i.e. set ~.volume=0) if that loudness is above some user specified level? For example:
    • Might there be metadata within the file header that describes loudness just as there is metadata that describes duration?
    • Might parsing just the first 3-5 seconds of the file be sufficiently manageable to estimate loudness without grossly impacting page load-time or grossly taxing the CPU?
    • Might the default action be to set ~.volume=0 until such time as the browser has parsed the entire src to determine actual RMS loudness .. and only then restore ~.volume to user-prescribed maximum permitted volume iff RMS loudness is below a user prescribed threshold? (the bigger the file the longer that media is muted before it can be potentially unmuted!)

Thank you, in advance, for any time you spend responding to my questions. I am especially appreciative of links that I can follow to find answers for myself rather than being spoon-fed answers on a specific case by case basis.

I am trying to disable auto-refresh on my tabs when I minimize them, but when I type 'about: config' into the address bar, it just shows search engine results instead of opening it as an actual URL. I have already gone into settings and disabled all search suggestions, and it's still doing it anyway.

What am I supposed to be doing here? I spent tons of time in the support community looking for fixes to my problem and all I found were people telling me to use Nightly, but I don't want to give up basic capabilities like printing etc.

Thanks!

New image search. A notification keeps coming up to say it needs permissions. I have allowed all permissions in settings on the browser and in my apps settings. I downloaded the add-on 3 times & not sure what to do with the api file. It does work to search images anyway. If I go to Add-ons in the menu & tap a picture, it does search. Should I set it to URL or clipboard?

Hello,

Quite à few month ago, after update, my new Firefox for Android does not allow me to access to the print option. I cannot find the page nor the tools options using my mobile. When using edge, chrome or other browser, I still do have this option and therefore able to print pdf copies of the resources I do want to archive. Is it possible to know why these printing options are unaccessible on Firefox using Android ?

Hi, I'm actually entirely sure what category my tickets belongs in so apologies if it's misclassified.

I've been having a problem recently with Firefox where mobile YouTube (m.youtube.com) keeps turning up in Simplified Chinese. I'm on a Pixel 3 and my device language and default language are both English (Australia). Whenever I can change my default language, I do it to English (Australia) or English (UK). My keyboard languages are English (Australia), Chinese (Simplified) and Russian (Russian), and although I don't think this should affect the problem, I see no other reason YouTube would show me a Chinese YouTube.

Whenever I go to the YouTube settings and change it to English (Australia), then close Firefox and reopen it to access mobile YouTube again, I am faced with the same Chinese YouTube with seemingly Chinese recommendations too.

Usually you'd think this is a problem with YouTube but the problem doesn't happen when I use mobile YouTube on Google Chrome. It's automatically in English (which one I haven't bothered to check).

I often download multiple files daily. Firefox has a confirmation box that pops up every time, so I have to type twice for each download. I also have to tap OK for the first confirmation before it will let me tap to download again. Is there a way to turn this off for mobile, even if it's limited to a single trusted site? Or is this possible in Nightly?

The latest Android+Firefox update has Firefox opening in Immersive Mode (full screen, hiding Navigation bar and Status/notification bar). I am frequently navigating between apps, so this requires me to do a lot of extra gestures in my daily interactions with Firefox. Also, I miss being able to quickly check the time and my battery life in the status bar. I know some people like immersive mode, but there are many use cases where forced full screen is not desirable, so there should be a setting to toggle this off.
