I gotta ask... why isn't there a setting to remove private browsing on firefox? Now yeah sure it's free security but we got add ons for that. I've always felt like private browsing and incognito stuff is just a way to go to pornhub feeling secured from criticism. That's why I quit Chrome (+ being able to watch YouTube with ads for free) so I gotta ask again... why isn't there a setting to remove private browsing on firefox?

Home screen might be considered a specialized bookmark I suppose but the categories don't directly apply above. Browsers for decades have allowed a custom Url to be entered or "use current page" as home screen. I can find no option under firefox settings for Android enter it. What's the trick?

I picked last tab but that isn't the same as a fixed URL such as my bank website or Facebook page I would always want to see first.

Is there a way to search through my open tabs? If not, PLEASE create that feature.

Also, is there a way to see the previous pages that have been opened in a tab? Right now, I have to just keep backspacing through previous tabs hoping to find the one I'm looking for. If not, please ad d a way to view and select previously opened tabs before I start backspacing through them.

Is there a way to sort open tabs, at least alphabetically? If not, that would be a very nice feature to have.

I'm using Android 12.

Thank you for your help.

Choice needed: It's ridiculous that in 2024 in the era of huge screen tablets and phones, we are still knocked back to mobile view again and again and again. If you love mobile view and you love the bigger icons, fine! I'll go get you a juice box and you'll have a great day. But some people don't. I just want default to desktop as an OPTION. Is it so hard to understand?

By default, Firefox only downloads directly to the internal storage, and not the micro SD card I installed. Its become tedious to manually move everything to save phone space every time I download anything.

All the past forums said to use about:config, but I understand the newer Firefox removed that function as it would break the app due to some major internal changes.

Please add the function to set a download path for Firefox to send my files to, including to my SD card.

I've used Tor Browser (Firefox kernel), and the "add-ons" in that browser say "add-ons may damage the browser". Does Firefox have any safety measures for add-ons (such as running them in quarantine so that they don't damage the browser itself or other add-ons).

Dear Mozilla Firefox team,

I am writing to request a feature for the Firefox Android app that would allow users to follow a homepage wallpaper from the gallery. This feature would enable users to customize their browser experience by choosing a wallpaper that suits their preferences and mood. The wallpaper can be choosen from the image gallery of User. This feature available in edge browser android

I think this feature would enhance the aesthetic appeal and functionality of the Firefox Android app, as well as increase user engagement and satisfaction. It would also showcase the diversity and creativity of the Firefox community, as users could submit their own wallpapers to the gallery or vote for their favorites.

I hope you will consider adding this feature to the Firefox Android app in the future. Thank you for your time and attention.

Sincerely, B R Shriradhakrishnasharnam (A Firefox User)

Since updating to v 122.0 (Android) today, my home page displays a permanent intrusive "Customise homepage" button on my Homepage (see attached picture).

This is totally redundant when you can simply access this in 2 clicks from the taskbar. Why are such cosmetic features forced onto users? Customising my homepage is something I would do once, I don't need it to be slapped on my face every time I reach my home page.

Please advise, this is extremely annoying.

Why do I not have any control over which news outlets are on my home page. Every article is from Fox News and I am not interested in anything that News outlet is putting out. I am a Democrat and the page all of the sudden the past few months have almost all been from Fox News which is obviously a Republican and Donald Trump loving News outlet. So I am wondering why do I not have the option like in the past where I could choose which news outlets I would like to read from? It's kind of creepy to me that I would be sent almost every article from Fox News. Is there any way to change it? I know it might sound like I'm a nut but I promise I'm not, I'm just surprised by this whole situation. Thanks.

How do we permanently block and keep a website from being able to return bk into a person's life after the site was the cause of an immense amount of financial and emotional hardship. By having something that does this, like the Duck browser does, our clients, friends and family will feel more safe, right?
