After this update Firefox is usless on my Android Phone. I do not have the time to learn all over again how to use a browser I already have used for years! Everything is different. I hate it. I will use Chrome instead!

Suddenly Firefox updated on my Android phone and now none of my addons work, including my password manager and cookie manager. When I open the support link it opens to Firefox for Android beta Solutions. Addons are one of my main reason for using Firefox. Every article I've seen says there is no way to downgrade. If that's true I'll be switching to another browser that supports Chrome extensions, whether this version (79.0.4 (Build #2015757667)) is actually beta or not. Forced, irreversible updates with no warning that break critical functions. This is why I don't like the whole app store system, and again if true, this is totally inexcusable. I know this free software is a labor of love on the part of the developers, but I don't think I can deal with this update. A bunch of patronizing articles explaning why "we know what's best" is no better than Google or Microsoft. Anyway this was a major inconvenience coming without even a warning.

Hi, I use Facebook and Instagram through a browser. However, ever since the (forced) "upgrade" to version 79.0.5, neither site seems to allow me to upload media anymore. Can anyone explain to me how to get FF to allow uploading again, or otherwise explain to me this is a "feature"? I'm nearing the point of abandoning FF for all the - widely reported - problems with the latest version for Android. Bo

On the previous Firefox browser I had on my Android phone, I set it to close all my tabs when I closed the browser. I've just updated to the new Firefox on Android and I can't find the option to do this. I have to manually close all the tabs every time I close the browser. Surely they haven't given us less options and features in the new version?!

Pressing quit in the app closes the tabs but it doesn't also close the app down on my phone.

Hi, In addition to not being able to upload to Facebook and Instagram (cf. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1301272), I just found out I cannot upload any files to this support forum with FF 79.0.5. Am I crazy or did Mozilla get cuckoo? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Bo

Of course I'm talking about posting pictures in the Forum on these two sites. I can tell that other people are posting freely. https://www.rawstory.com/ https://www.crooksandliars.com..

I just got the nw upgrade for Firefox on Android, version 79.0.5 (Build #2015758619) AC: 48.0.15, 8755ac0cd GV: 79.0.1-20200813192915 AS: 61.0.10

Running on Samsung Galaxy A5 Android 8.0.0 Samsung Experience 9.0

On pages that used to show reader view yesterday, the icon is now missing. What has changed in the upgrade that disables this very useful feature? And I know for sure the website has not changed, so it's definitely because of the upgrade.
