Hey guys apparently I have opened a web site that instantly installed adware on my Samsung Galaxy S21 ultra 5G phone. I have installed AVG virus protection. I also have installed adblock app, and a Malware block app. Nothing works. I've tried the web fixes for Chrome. And Samsung Internet. Still nothing works. Anyone know how to fix this without resetting the phone back to factory.

The Salt Lake Tribune apparently uses tinypass.com as part of its reader access to their e-edition. This morning the access was not functioning. Tribune staff says one "must use Chrome or Google" not Firefox. This is from my Samsung phone. I'll have to check whether the Win10 desktop has the problem.

Hey, Can't seem to find the master password feature on android that's on the desktop version. Saw a previous thread from a year ago that implied that it was cause the unlocking of the phone was enough, but that didn't make sense to me, because you have to unlock a computer as well?

I just worry that if my phone gets hacked, they would just be able to easily pull the firefox passwords, and I wouldn't mind that extra layer of protection. Any chance I missed the setting or of this getting added? Or is this something I shouldn't worry about due to the way the data is secured?

Anyway, thank you for any perspectives in advance!

Cannot share links to Google Messages

I am not able to share website links to Google Messages using Firefox Nightly for Android, version 127.0a1 (Build #2016020495).

Steps to reproduce: open email message, tap on a link, once the link opens in the Powered by Firefox Nightly screen I tap on the sharing icon, select Google Messages, Google Messages opens but the link address is not pasted on the compose message box. Trying to manually copying and pasting the link has the same result. The only way to be able to share the link is to open the link in Firefox Nightly (the full browser) and then share it.

This happens on a Google Pixel 8 Pro using the latest Android 14 version with related updates.

Good morning. I recently changed smartphone, activating Firefox Sync between both devices, making sure that the old one didn't have the setting that makes open tabs inactive. Now after a week I don't see anymore synchronized tabs with the old smartphone. How can I solve it? Thanks, Phil.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra running latest Android update and latest Firefox update. I set Firefox as my default browser. I have un-installed all updates for Samsung Internet and removed all permissions for it. Disabling it is greyed out. Some apps that I use have links to websites. Too frequently, when I go to one of those links, the intro screen for Samsung Internet opens. Then, when I look at the settings in Firefox it is no longer set as the default. Then I set Firefox to default and go to my phone settings to see that Firefox is selected as the default. If I open the previously mentioned app and choose the web link, Firefox will open. But somewhere along the way, the default changes back to Samsung Internet and it's a vicious circle. I have posted in a Samsung forum but haven't gotten a reply that solved the problem. Please help. Thanks Mike

I've been using Firefox on my Android device, and I recently started using a VPN to enhance my online privacy. However, I've noticed that since I started using the VPN, the performance of Firefox has declined significantly. Pages take longer to load, and sometimes I experience connection issues.

Is there a way to optimize Firefox performance when using a VPN on Android? Are there specific settings or configurations within Firefox or the VPN app that I should be aware of to improve browsing speed and stability?

Any advice or tips from those who have faced similar issues would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance for your help!

Aren't they internal LAN ip's? How can they be seen even without a VPN when I have NAT.
