Hi

I have an issue when I try to set Firefox as my default browser on Huawei P20 lite (EMUI 9.1) device.

When I go to the app Settings--> Set as default browser option, I'm not getting the default apps page (screenshot 3). Instead, a premission settings page (screenshot 1) is popping up, and the button on Settings--> Set as default browser, is still grey (screenshot 2).

Earlier today, I've installed Firefox Focus browser, and when I tried to set it as my default browser, everything worked as it should, and the page of defaults apps opened up (screenshot 3).

I'll be very happy to know if this is a bug related to my device, or it happens with other devices.

Thanks in advance

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

When I tapped on the firefox widget on my phone this morning, it showed "google.com" in the address bar but the page was blank. I checked this on my wife's phone and my tablet and the exact same thing happens. I tried turning off my two add blockers to see if that would make a difference but it did not. I then uninstalled and reinstalled firefox on my phone from the Google Store and logged back in and it still acted the same way. For fun, I then turned on "Desktop site" in the menu and then my normal google.com page opened up. When I turned off 'desktop site', it went back to a blank screen with the "home" icon, the address bar, number of tabs open box and the 3 dots menu bar showing on top, but nothing else. I then opened my computer and works fine on my desktop. So, not sure what is happening but definitely some problem with "google.com" address on firefox (unless I toggle on "desktop site".) I also cleared my cache (which of course, was completely empty when I deleted and then added on the firefox app at the google store). Seems like might be a problem on your end? Especially since seems to happen on all four android devices that I have. I've also attached screenshots of the two pages I get, the first regular, the second with 'desktop site' toggled on.

HOW DO WE RESTORE JAVASCRIPT. I guess 🤣 need to buy a new phone thanks to FIREFOX. None of the crap in this forum or online works. At first my problem was I can't open links because I need to enable JavaScript. I cannot use the suggested fix i.e. about:config. Doesn't work.

Just a few minutes ago I was able to post a DISAPPEARING query and then somehow I'm not in Firefox and when I try to log in WHICH I DID just minutes before I'm told my password doesn't work or I need to use primary acct which I try and still get told it's WRONG. So now I think I'm here by signing in with Gmail but the problems keep multiplying until I can't remember all the steps I took when something worked and a second later it was bad page or some warning or this that and the other. WHY THE "&?$ isn't there a fix I can complete before I die of old age? HOW DO I ENABLE JAVASCRIPT and why did it quit working?

Firefox Android does not enter my login credentials into the blanks for some websites. The sites I’m having problems with are linuxmint forums (forums.linuxmint.com) and reddit and google.

I do not have this problem on Firefox for Linux. I do not have this problem on other websites with saved passwords on Firefox for Android.

What do these problem sites have in common, and what distinguishes them from the problem-free sites? The only thing I can think of is that for LinuxMint Forums, reddit, and Google, I have many saved passwords/credentials. I have 36 sets of credentials for reddit and 18 for Linux Mint forums and about 60 for Google.

Can someone please help me?

I have this problem for both Firefox Android regular (presently 114.2.0) and Firefox Android Beta (115.0b9). I've had this problem for a long time (probably over a year).
