I am using Firefox nightly on Android. About two weeks ago I noticed that my toolbar got moved to the bottom after some update, while address bar is still at the top. I tried looking for it in settings but couldn't find anything about toolbar, that's weird since I was able to customize it a few years ago when I installed Firefox for the first time. So I looked it up on the internet and they say that it's in Settings/Customize/Toolbar, but in my browser settings instead of Toolbar there is Address bar settings. Has toolbar's settings been moved somewhere else? It looks like in previous versions it was under Customize section.

I recently logged into the WIFI of my TAFE, which uses a proxy, only to find that Firefox would not work. 1 hour of crazed searching later I have found that you pretty much *cannot use a proxy with Firefox on Android*.

Sure technically you can download the FoxyProxy add-on or go to about:config and change the settings there (but not on the stable build which y'know most people use) but the fact that the stock, stable install has *zero* support for proxies, which are extremely common on school/work networks, is absolutely unacceptable. This is *basic* functionality that was reported as missing as far back as 10 years ago and *nothing* has been done to fix this.

The worst part is Mozilla are clearly aware of this. An issue was opened on github and was only closed to be moved over to bugzilla where it remains open. And for some reason on bugzilla the severity is marked as N/A even though this literally means you cannot use Firefox Android on any network with a proxy

I apologize for the harsh and direct tone but I am truly astonished that no one seems to think that this is as severe as it actually is. I use Firefox because I love open source software and I hate the idea of google having a monopoly over browsers. Things like this where basic features are missing (resulting in the browser being completely unusable on certain networks) make me reconsider if this browser is even worth using. And please don't say that FoxyProxy solves all of this because the fact that basic functionality is locked behind a third party extension is unacceptable.

Hi I'm using speed dial 2 on Firefox desktop. On Firefox Android I have not this possibility to set custom dials/sites on Start page and new tabs. When I try to use the built-in function I see pages from history. It's a big must and huge update to integrate a facility like this.

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?).

When searching in hebrew, the language appears on the left as well, and it is really hard to type or edit.

Is it possible to add a new language that is Right To Left And display it on the Right?

Hello all,

I had been using firefox as the standard browser for years, but since the DNS-over-HTTPS feature I have had trouble with protecting my family on the web via DNS filtering. Currently the only solution that has worked is to use a different browser (the Spin browser, for whoever is interested). I have Firefox blocked using the Android family link feature (and they can't install new apps without permission). Personally, I would love to move everyone back to Firefox, but I can't find a way to do it safely. Is there a way to effectively disable DNS-over-HTTPS such that it can't be changed (kids are pretty quick at figuring out that they can just go to the settings and figuring out that they can turn the feautre back on). A parental control feature would be ideal, so I can just set the DNS-over-HTTPS to use the family DNS filter in a way they can't turn it off. Does anyone have an helpful solution, or is Firefox dead for family protection?

Respectfully, Andrew

I'm constantly annoyed by the history tab on my phone. When I visit several Wikipedia pages one after the other for example, they're grouped together in a folder that's named after whatever first search query I made. I don't see any way to turn this off.

Additionally, I'd also like to be able to delete forwarding pages from my history from my phone. I do this on my PC which I have synced by entering "." into the history search bar and manually deleting them but otherwise I'm stuck using the search function on my phone even for pages I visited recently, which is often full of forwarding pages I haven't gotten around to deleting yet.

More a Concern or Desire than a question.

Very common these days (2023) are device types - PCs, Cell Phones, etc. Firefox browser is available to (my main interest) Windows PCs and Android Cell Phone. Then their OS, versions, etc. All have many differences so establishing these differences in the beginning of questios and explainations are critical to the assumptions going forward in support.

The moz://a Support (most support forums) overlook this vital step before delving down into the myriad of complex and different option settings and discussions. I'm no professional but am confident that instruction details are likely very specific to the different device/OS, versions, Platforms, etc. That said I am very frustrated to the lack of a definite starting point for research as most if not all that information is useless to ones specific needs.

Hope you can take this to Hart and consider adjusting the Top Level Titles and/or providing Option Filters to better guide users to their specific needs.

A little different but related, in the old DOS days the c:\\ path format was a very useful practice to provide an orientation of where you are logically. It even accommodates a backward or higher level logic projection up into the internet or devices. I'm only amateur in the full understanding but am fairly certain of its existence. These no nonsense logical establishments go a long way in understanding & conveying complex theory. STANDARDS.

Thank you. Rod

When I select a text from any website there is no option to search privately (unless you're already in private mode). Having Firefox Focus installed makes the option appear but it opens the link there aka in a different app, it would be a lot better if you need have to install another app and yes I know i can just do it manually by copying the text, switch to private mode, pasting and then finally searching. It would save you 3 taps. (The images are with the Firefox Focus app uninstalled, I can provide more with it being installed and how it works.)
