Hi,

There used to be recommended sites when opening a new tab which I believe belonged to Pockets. I really enjoy this feature on my Desktop FF. On Android it disappeared with a major release sometine this year. I was hoping this feature would be reintroduced since FF can monetize on their Ads as well. Current installation is v.82.1.1

Regards.

Hello

I had some problems in my PC overall that I had to do the 'Reset' but with the option 'Keep my files'. Consequently, all programs are deleted or uninstalled, obviously including Firefox.

I did not have my account synced on the PC, so would there possibly be any way to get to recover the browsing history or that's it.

I also had one notebook add-on, but I believe it is impossible as long as the account is not synced. Just asking in case there may be a chance.

Any hope about the browsing history anyway ?

I want to remove or set my home screen to something else other than the Firefox default.

I've managed to remove everything from the default home screen, which is a start. But I don't want a home screen at all.

Ideally, Firefox would just resume as it was the previous time it opened. That's how it worked until a recent update.

The latest updates for Firefox on Android have helpfully deleted my browser theme.

I know themes aren't supported for now, and that would be fine— were it not for the fact that it's also left no trace of which theme I was using, so I can't even install it on Desktop or a future Android version.

This is something that the user explicitly chooses and sets, and which becomes a personalized and extremely visible part of their user experience. Please tell me that there's still an `about:config` flag or back-up configuration file or something which contains an ID or URL for the theme.

Is there a way to bring back the old Send to device firefox share option in apps outside of firefox?

There are 2 problems that I'm experiencing:

1) There used to be a share option from any app on my Android phone to send a link directly to any device with firefox installed (like my desktop). It was an amazing feature and an easy and convenient way to links from my phone to my computer. Now if I want to send a link from an app outside of firefox using the firefox send to device feature, I have to click Share>Firefox (which simply opens the link in firefox)>menu>share icon>send to device.

The new version of firefox has managed to take a 2 click process that can be done from within ANY app, and turned it into a 5 click process and forces firefox to open which slows down your workflow. This is a massive step backwards IMHO.

The functionality of the new Share>Firefox funtion also doesn't make sense if you have set Firefox as your default browser - it simply opens the link in firefox, which I could have done just by clicking on the link.

The worst part about the new process is that it doesn't always work! Which brings me to problem 2...

2) Often after clicking on menu>share icon>send to device, my devices aren't listed and it just has an error symbol and says something like "no devices available." The workaround that I have found is to keep repeating the process until eventually all my devices are listed. It is annoying and time consuming.

Please let me know if there is a way to bring back the old Send to device firefox share option in apps outside of firefox?

Hi, I'd like to use Firefox on my Android tablet in landscape mode. The "tablet mode" should list the open tabs on the top of the screen. This is not showing.

Supposedly setting the screen size (dpi) in Android developer options to a high value should help. I've tried this but it doesn't make a difference. I've tried both Firefox and Firefox Nightly.

Several screenshot are attached. One of them is of Chrome with a row of tabs on the top of the screen.

First and foremost I am trying to find the homepage. I have read articles on how to set the homepage but the images don't look like my Android app. I will attach screenshots I have my settings and nowhere does it say anything about home. Any ideas of how to set a homepage so that I will have one place to go to when I first start when I open Firefox that would be awesome cuz right now I don't like the way it set up. it takes me to my account page and I can't do anything.

My next question is tabs. I don't see anything about opening a new tab or setting a new tab so any information on that would be most appreciative.

Thanks for anyone who will assist.

I've noticed that the number of collections is limited to only 20. That low number itself is a pity. But adding the 21st and in consequence delete the oldest one from the 20 I don't understand and don't accept. Could you please issue an error message and state that a further collection is not possible due to having reached the maximum of 20. I should add that I noticed that behavior before I've registered for a Firefox account. Maybe people with and without an account are treated differently.

Best regards, Frank

If you go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/ where I would expect only supported add-ons to appear, it seems not a single recommended add-on is compatible.

If you then follow the hyperlinks at the top of the page, "To learn about add-ons compatible with Firefox for Android, click here", which eventually links to the "recommended Extensions program" at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?recommended=true&type=extension, none of those work either. Even though I have uBlock installed and its recommended, when I open the extension page I still get the prompt "Not available on Firefox for Android..." It seems like that extension was only installed because it was tied to my mozilla account.

I cannot find a list anywhere of apps that are supported on Firefox 80.
