I have the "Autofill in other apps" service set to Firefox but when I attempt to enter a password in any app, I get a message taht says "Unlock Firefox." Tapping on this message does nothing; the message just keeps popping up. No password options appear. If I manually start typing the password, the message goes away, but I am not able to autofill passwords in apps.

If I turn the Autofill in other apps service off, at least I don't get the annoying message, but I'd really like to be able to autofill the passwords. Any suggestions?

Firefox version 95.2.0 (Build #: 2015851755) Android version: 10 Phone: Moto Z4

Thanks!

This is regards to another application issuing startActivity Intent.ACTION_VIEW on Firefox of a URI with Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID set.

Previously, it worked so (the syntax is not to be taken literally). startActivity(ACTION_VIEW, uri="http://example.com/a.htm", app="MySpecialTab") -> opened a tab with a.htm startActivity(ACTION_VIEW, uri="http://example.com/b.htm", app="MySpecialTab") -> used same tab for b.htm startActivity(ACTION_VIEW, uri="http://example.com/b.htm", app="MySpecialTab") -> used same tab for b.htm and refreshed.

Now, with the most recent release: startActivity(ACTION_VIEW, uri="http://example.com/a.htm", app="MySpecialTab") -> opened a tab with a.htm startActivity(ACTION_VIEW, uri="http://example.com/b.htm", app="MySpecialTab") -> opened a new tab for b.htm startActivity(ACTION_VIEW, uri="http://example.com/b.htm", app="MySpecialTab") -> does not refresh.

I went looking for some config but couldn't find anything. The fact that I can't get it to refresh is a bigger deal-breaker than the fact that it opens more tabs.

Hi there I have used Firefox on my android phone for the longest time, and never had an issue. A couple of days ago it crashed immediately on trying to open it. I repeated trying to open it across the course of the day - but continued crashing. I deleted it, and have set to use Chrome. I reinstalled Firefox - same issue. I am not techy-techy (!) but would like to have Firefox back on my phone as all my passwords are there. Any help appreciated Thank you :)

I'm using the Telstra App( Australian Phone company) to buy more pre-paid credit and when i click pay PayPal it gives me a pop up box that says "Select "window" in your toolbar to find log in to your PayPal account" and it opens FF but it just sits on my home page and doesn't open PayPal, it use to open the PayPal app, but i figured Telstra changed something in their app that now forces it to open my default browser. so i figured I'd try here and see if this message make any sense to anyone, I have google it but no results point to where to find the toolbar it talks about.

The tabs, history, and bookmarks are not syncing on my Android device. Whenever I try to sync my tabs, it just says "Syncing..." but nothing happens. It also asks me to enable tab syncing but I can't enable it because it's greyed out. When I try to send tabs from my Android to my PC, it says offline even though I have a strong internet connection. When I check my connected devices on my PC, it recognizes that my Android is signed in. It just won't sync.

Things that I've tried: - Signing out then signing in again on the device - Uninstalling then reinstalling firefox on my Android - Switching from mobile data to wifi

None of these have worked. This is a firefox feature that I've been using for a while and I rely on it quite a lot so it would be great if someone could help me with this. Thanks!

I usually view websites in landscape. However, when switching between portrait and landscape, firefox seems to refresh the page. This is a problem between browsing sessions, where I just want to continue where I was at. I may be 1/2 way down a page, exit the browser, come back to it a couple of hours later.

The app will start in portrait and then change to landscape. During this process, the page refreshes twice and when it finishes reloading, I will be on a different position on the page and have to find my way back to where I was reading.

So... I want to force firefox in landscape mode to prevent this problem. However: 1. There seems to be no menu item to allow this. 2. A web search says this is available in about:config, but about:config seems to have been disabled a couple of years ago.

Can anyone help with how to force Firefox for Android in landscape?

Hi all, I've set up proxy auto configuration with wpad. And it's working, but not in every case: On my android (version 10) phone I can enter in the advanced options the "Proxy Auto-Config" with a PAC URL. This works, but only for Chrome. When I use Firefox, the proxy is not used. Any Idea why this is the case and how this could be resolved?

I also downloaded the nightly build. With about:config I can set the network.proxy.autoconfig_url. There I added the PAC URL. But the browser still don't use the proxy. Any idea how to make this working?

Cheers

I switched to Firefox from yandex browser recently on both desktop and android recently and have been really enjoying it, but pages on android 11 (galaxy a52) load very slow for some reason. It is much slower than yandex, and i find it weird, because it's the other way around on desktop, and i've heard good things about firefox's speed as well. Maybe the issue isn't in the browser. I run latest version of it, and tried google search and duck duck go. It was alright on google, still slower, but bearable. On ddg it's just barely working. The internet speed is fine, and i don't use any vpn or proxy. Speed remains slow both using wifi and cellular.

(The following is translated by Google Translate) I am an Android user. In the web page, click the password input box, the web page will automatically enlarge and automatically move the password input box to the center of the screen. Firstly, I do not like this design. Secondly, there are some problems with the automatic enlargement of the web page, for example, the web page will be fixed after enlargement and cannot be narrow, then,the page automatically enlarge, causing 1Password's floating window to misplace,(1password is a password manager),When you click the password input box,1password's floating window will appear,However, at this time, the web page of Firefox will automatically enlarge when entering the password,and automatically center the password box,but the floating window of 1password won't move, and it remains in place,and then there was a problem. In addition to these two problems, there is another small problem,All in all, I don't like this design, not only because I don't like it, but also because it has many problems.Therefore,I hope that we can turn off the automatic enlargement of the webpage, turn off automatic center the password box on the screen

I enjoy playing Bridge and use a site called Bridge Club Live. I can log in fine but when i go to the playing page, it loads incorrectly and the writing is enormous, with only a tiny part of the screen shown. I have tried to resize to no avail. The technical people at BCL have no idea why its doing this and neither have I. Can anyone suggest anything? I have the latest Firefox Browser and it works fine on Chrome but I'd much rather use Firefox. I am using a Samsung tablet. Hope someone can help. thank you.

I have tried to upload a photo but the upload just keeps going round and round and never finishes.

Hello,

as the Firefox Sync is not working with incognito tabs (which is sort of intended), I sometimes stumble on the problem that I opened an URL in incognito mode but find it useful to safe for later reference (be it rereading, quoting or whatever).

Since some time (a few weeks maybe) I found the option to share the incognito tabs gone. I can share regular tabs but the option is not there for the incognito tabs. To test this, I go to the list of open tabs and long-press one of the tabs of interest. Recently, I was able to select some tabs and tap the share icon. This no longer happens.

Was this intentionally removed? I do not see the use-case, especially as it allowed to selectively close multiple tabs quickly.

Thanks
