I can't remove or disable search engines associated with companies that commit grave human rights offenses through the Settings menu on Firefox for Android. What are my other options? Firefox has become literally offensive. Alternately, what are some free open source browsers that don't force these on me?

I have a new Nexus 10, and installed both Firefox and the Epson print app. when I go to the Rockville swim and fitness center, full screen, it will show me a button on the right side labeled schedule. clicking on that starts a download (it should simply show me the contents of the file like the real Firefox does). if I go to the download section of Firefox, the download is listed, but when I try to view it with the word app, it claims that the file is not present. if I try to view it with the Epson app, it claims that the app has stopped. if I go into epson print and look around, i can find the file and read it. But this is unreasonably complex. The same problem occurrs with crome, but crome doesnt appear to support full screen. this problem is not present on the apple ipad with default web browser.

I have a nexus 10, which with a 10" screen is not really a mobile device. Unfortunately, Firefox is telling web pages that it is. Given this information, some web pages redirect to an abbreviated page. Turning on "request desktop site" does not work since I am no longer on the site I want and this button is not persistent. Thus the question, how do I turn off mobility notification?

The 3dot main menu icon is missing in ff26 for android. How can this button be restored?

SPECS: OS: Android v4.? (not sure how to find the version) Web Browser: Firefox for Android v.26

PROBLEM: According to what I have read when searching for help there is supposed to be an icon next to the bookmark icon (upper right side of the browser) that looks like three virtical dots which, when clicked is supposed to show the main menu. On my sceen there is no such icon for the main menu at all anywhere on the screen. (If someone can post instructions on how to show a screenshot in this thread, I could provide one).

QUESTIONS: 1.) How can the main menu icon be foeced to be shown? 2.) Is there any other way to access the main menu in the Android version of firefox if that "3 dot" icon is missing?

NOTE: about:config appears to have been crippled in the Android version of firefox such that there appears to be no way to list all the settings as once, as was the default view in the desktop version of firefox.

Hi,

The text with this browser shows different sizes of text on a web page? Some is normal, then some is tiny. I you pinch the page up to read the tiny text, the normal text goes very large. It ruins reading a web page. Why does this happen, and is there anything I can do about it? It is particularly difficult when on a forum.

Thankyou.
