I originally was able to create the home page shortcut to Piped with Chrome, but the shortcut launched Chrome, even though Firefox is my default browser?

Piped [https://piped.kavin.rocks/https://pip.../|Piped]

So I deleted the shortcut. Now, Chrome no longer even offers me the option to "Add to Home Screen" from the Piped page, but it still does for other sites. Within Chrome, It now offers me the option to open the page in Firefox, even if I make Chrome the default browser.

How can I get a shortcut to Piped on my home page that will open in Firefox?

I am trying to set the home page on my Samsung S21 with android v13 and firefox v117. I cannot find any means for setting the home page. The customize homepage in the top (3 button) menu has no option for setting a different home page.

The homepage option under settings gives you exactly the same options as above.

The customize option under settings applies only to the theme and has no options for managing the home page.

Unfortunately every version of firefox is different and all the instructions I have found apply to different versions of firefox than the one I am using.

Hello,

I'm fairly new to using a smart phone; I've had one for a little over a year. Just like on my laptop, I enjoy being able to use Firefox Mobile and appreciate setting up shortcuts to my Android Home Screen. I haven't set one for some time now and am running into problems doing that now. I've discovered that when I now try to set one, it only goes to my Firefox Home Screen, not my Android home screen. What's up with that?

Also, on my Firefox home screen, my Shortcut list not only has my Android Home Screen shortcuts but also many Bookmarks that I don't necessarily want shortcuts to. How do I clean up this list?

While I'm at it, what are Collections?

Thanks, Andre'a

Is there a way to force "dark mode" for websites on mobile WITHOUT using an extension like Dark Reader?

I am comparing this to coming from Brave, where I am using their "experimental" Night Mode settings (which works great). For the desktop browser, I've gone to Manage Colors and swapped text/background white/black to make most websites appear as if they have a dark mode, but that option doesn't seem to exist on mobile.

I've attached 4 images that show the differences across the two browsers on mobile. Even Google's own Dark Theme doesn't seem accessible through whatever method FireFox uses, so I can't even use that dark theme without an extension at the moment.

If this is not currently possible, I'm hoping it's planned for future implementation. I can't suggest it either since the feature suggestion page appears to be down at the moment (being reworked?).

I increased the font size in Firefox to 145%. It increased only the font size, but not other things until the latest update. The first image shows what the webpage looks like with 145% font size, where everything is larger in this version. The second image with the increment of just font size in previous version. How to increase just font size but not other things? Any help would be appreciated.

I read the strings of comments regarding about:config not working and presenting a blank page. I have the same issue.

I have been a Firefox user for decades, preferring Firefox over all other browsers. However, without the ability to customize Firefox we, the loyal, may be forced to use another browser. Also, no customization is only contribution to other browser's owners/developers efforts to eliminate Firefox.

Is there a solution to fixing current version or Firefox, about:config in development or already available?

Thank you.

Since updating to v 122.0 (Android) today, my home page displays a permanent intrusive "Customise homepage" button on my Homepage (see attached picture).

This is totally redundant when you can simply access this in 2 clicks from the taskbar. Why are such cosmetic features forced onto users? Customising my homepage is something I would do once, I don't need it to be slapped on my face every time I reach my home page.

Please advise, this is extremely annoying.

Why does Firefox purposely choose to alienate their Android users by not allowing them to choose their own home screen. The Firefox web browser on Windows does.

As much as I distrust Google as a company and avoid using their products (as much as convenietly possible), I am very comfortable using their search engine and comfortable seeing a Google homepage with the Google search bar.

Firefox doesn't even give me the courtesy to: 1) know or understand which search engine I am using when I am on the "forced" Firefox homepage, or 2) set my own homepage. Therefore, I have to ensure the cursor is in the "search/web address" bar, start typing "google", and hit enter in order to get to the familiar Google homepage of which I am comfortable. I hate that Firefox forces me to do that!

Otherwise, I like using the Firefox browser as an alternative to Google. Nonetheless, it's your company and you can do what you like, but as soon as I come across an alternative browser that allows me to adjust it's settings to my preferences, it's adios MFr's to Firefox.

FYI, I would LOVE to meet the decision maker at Mozilla that OK'd this change and listen to him/her/they hem, haw and double-speak through their ridiculous justification. Another thing, while I'm at it.... Exactly, when did it become a better idea for companies (challenging the industry leader) to alienate their users?

I hit something in error and now my search results are dark. Only the google screen as attached. if I go to the links on the search page they will be light. I read someone say that by touching the top of the screen can do that?. I may have done I was half asleep.

There is no about:config

The theme is light in settings/ customise. Latest FF in android 12 on an Honor x6

Also it is only FF, Brave shows search results as light.

I hate that dark look and want the ligh one back
