i have some custom search engines on Firefox Android 89 (settings > search > add search engine > other).

i noticed that Firefox seems to be ordering the search engines in an arbitrary order.

when i first add the searches, they appear in the order that they are added.

but after the phone is restarted (note: not the browser, the phone), the search engines are ordered in a different way.

this same order shows up in both the settings search engine list (settings > search) and also the search engine selection list (url bar > search engine)

i have observed: - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine name - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine url (with or without protocol prefix) - it is not sorted by order added - it is deterministic: if i delete an engine and re-add it, even if i name it something different, after a phone restart it'll still return to the same position it was before

so my questions are: 1. how exactly does Firefox sort the search engines? 2. how do i set a custom order for the search engines?

thanks!

"Tab Closed, Undo" Button Directly Over The Ability To Close The Next Tab. ALSO STILL CAN'T REORDER TABS IN TAB LIST.

There is a design flaw in a recent update of firefox for android. When I am trying to close tabs quickly from the bottom, the "tab closed, undo" button is now positioned directly over the X mark on the next tab to close the next one and I have to wait until it goes away to close the next tab. This is extremely frustrating and I am hoping this is fixed soon. It is taking 3 times as long to close my tabs in the order I would like to. The button just needs to be very slightly thinner and the X mark for the next tab will not be blocked anymore.

I ALSO WANT TO ADD THAT I STILL CANNOT REORDER MY TABS ON ANDROID AND IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE. PLEASE FIX!!!!

My Amazon account keeps sending me emails that say my password is attempting to be changed. For the device ID that is given it says this device ip address Mozilla Firefox. For location it says Georgia USA.

 The issue with this is that I am not in GA, I live in and am sitting in the state of Kentucky. Several hundred miles from GA. So if there is anything about this that can be done I really appreciate it.

Closing tabs individually creates a too large info box

There is a large info box popping up in the bottom of the screen when I close tabs. I usually press 'x' and close tabs starting with the last one but this info box that says 'tab closed' and has an undo button on it, is covering a big portion of the last tab including it's 'x' button. It is even larger in landscape mode. This is very annoying and if I want to close another tab I'd have to wait for it to disappear or try to press around it. It's a useful feature but could the experience be made more better?

I am one of the numerous users of Firefox browser but having problem to use my Android smartphone phone (Itel S15 Pro) camera to scan Firefox QR despite giving the camera permission in my phone's settings. Having displayed Firefox QR on my laptop screen, I open Firefox browser and tap the scan button on my phone Microsoft SwiftKey keyboard which opens the scanner page. I directed the camera to the QR on my laptop to scan the QR. Attempt to open my Firefox mobile account through this address: https://accounts.firefox.com/m/hCkG9GTw is made but will not open even with the refreshing of the process several times.

I have attached a number of screen shots of my actions to get through the whole process which you can piece together to help me solve the problem.

I'm trying to figure out why Google Play Store does not open or let me gain access unless I go through the "ritual" of deleting the cache in the app & also in the Google Play Services app & then restart my device. Then I only gain access for "one" attempt & I have to repeat the steps, of deleting the cache in both apps & restarting, I call it the ritual now.

I "installed" some webapps on my (default lineageOS) Android Launcher

But after I reboot, all of them are deactivated/grey. When I tap on them I get the info: "Shortcut isn't available" and nothing else happens.

  • I have an SD card but I didn't install Firefox on it. (I guess this is not even possible). However I know this behavior from apps which are on an SD card but the SD card isn't mountedmount yet.
  • I also know this behavior if I set a timer in the digital wellbeing app. But I guess this has nothing to do with it.
  • I use lineage os:

17.1-20210510-NIGHTLY-ginkgo This is android version 10

You know how to solve this issue?

Kind regards!
