Using Firefox mobile for android and GBoard.

I've selected Firefox as my auto fill service.

A few official apps (at least one banking app, for example) that I've downloaded from the play store that report the following after I unlock and select the correct password:

"Firefox could not verify the authenticity of the application. Do you want to proceed with autofilling the selected credentials."

I can't seem to find any other report of this error so I'm curious what's going on.

Hi there, Looking at pcapdroid and adguard DNS, Firefox on my android phone is constantly connecting to xxxxx.ingest.sentry.io.

Why does it do this? I get sentry is a crash reporting tool(?) however I have everything diagnostic wise turned off. I don't really mind but not having an option to disable this is a bit strange. Also why does it need to connect so often, even without a crash or error? I have over 50 attempts/connections logged in last 3 hours alone.

The lack of a JavaScript switch in Firefox (Android) - why?

I have noted from a web search that the subject of Javascript in Firefox (Android) has caused issues for some users of this browser.

I understand that JavaScript is now enabled by default in the standard version of Firefox (Android). It appears that once upon a time there was a config setting that could be tweaked to switch JavaScript on or off, but that setting may no longer work. Additionally, I also understand there are add-ons for the Android version of Firefox that can, amongst other things, apparently switch JavaScript on or off.

People here might be surprised to learn that the minimalist Firefox Focus (Android) browser already has a built-in, easily accessible, switch to turn JavaScript on or off:

Settings > Privacy & Security > Web Content > Block JavaScript

So, the point I would like to raise with Mozilla (but it seems to be impossible to contact them directly) is, if it is available in Firefox Focus (Android), why the heck is this switch not available in the mainstream, standard version of Firefox (Android)? It makes absolutely no sense not to have it, surely?

I would suggest that a good place to include a JavaScript switch would be in the 'Site permissions' section of Firefox (Android) settings. It is merely a suggestion as, for example, within the rather useful competitor Vivaldi (Android) browser there is such a switch located here:

Settings > WEB PAGES > Site settings > JavaScript

As for why there should be a JavaScript switch within Firefox (Android), that question is largely irrelevant. Mozilla have already seen a need to include it in Firefox Focus (Android), so what possible good reason could there be for not including it in Firefox (Android)? It mystifies me, and it's omission is an inconvenience too.

Does anyone here have a sensible answer to this question?

Background:

I regularly work with old modem/router at my work sites. I usually use Firefox on PC to access the management page. Sometimes, I like to check by the sites with only my phones, to mess with the configs in the modem.

I cannot access the local IP address (https://192.168.10.1/) because of the TLS requirement is too high (SSL/TLS 1.3). I need to lower the TLS version inabout:config to 1.1. I couldn't access the about:config on Firefox Android.

I have tapped 5 times on the Firefox logo to enable to Debug page, but changing TLS requirement is NOT there.

Question: Where is the setting for security.tls.version.min in Firefox Android 120.0?

Over the last 3 days, I've been unable to turn off the safe search option using Google as the search engine.

I get a message saying Safe search is locked.

This applies whether I'm signed in to Google or not, but doesn't occur in the chrome app for android.

I tried clearing cache, cookies & data etc to no avail.

So I completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox yesterday which worked fine, however I've noticed the locked safe search filter is back on today.

Any thoughts?

Hello!

Firefox on Android won't display pop-ups. I've checked privacy setting but there's no checkbox for a popup blocker. Also tried about:config but didn't find any setting to change. Any ideas on how to be sure Firefox is comfigured to allow popups? I participate on a Zoom webinar and can't start Zoom through Firefox so have to use Chrome.

Thanks!

I tried downloading the apk for firefox from https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/android/all/ but first I need to enter an email which I do not like having to do but ok I caved and did it.

The email I recieved from mozilla did not contain a link to the apk. only a link to https://app.adjust.com/2uo1qc?campaign=email&adgroup=mobiledownload&creative=fx-mobile-en which got blocked by my security/privacy measures.

Where can I get the apk from? preferably from f-droid. why is not firefox available on f-droid?
