I'm not sure what category this falls under, but Android is missing a critical feature: the save for offline viewing option, also known as the download page for offline viewing. Other Android browsers, such as Chrome and Samsung Internet, have this feature, but Firefox does not for inexplicable reasons. This should have been one of the first features added to the browser when it was released for the OS. It's been over a decade and this hasn't been resolved; what are you paying your programmers for if they can't integrate such a basic and necessary feature that everyone uses and requires? Please listen to the people.

How do I enable Javascript on Firefox Android? There are many so-called solutions on the net, but the one with "about-config" does not work; it just starts a search. According to mozilla it does not work on mobile devices anyway. So, does anyone really know? Cheers

There are 226 questions that came up when I searched for "about: config". A lot of users have requested that "aboutconfig" be an option for users who want to solve some of their own problems. I'm not a developer and find that i can research and follow instructions to resolve and/or personalize FF using it.

So, what do we as users need to do to impress this upon developers to lut it back on FF android, heck, on all of the apps!

If someone fools around with it and creates their own issues, thats not on y'all ! They can reinstall or go back to correct, etc. PUT A WARNING LABEL ON IT if you need to. From what I've read, thats the main reason it was removed.

Why punish responsible users for those who aren't ????

How do we impress this upon FF ???

For many, many years Firefox has been my default browser. Even now, when Mozilla has ruined the Android version I have persisted, but it's got to the point I have to give up. Several weeks ago I visited Paris for six days and now Google in Firefox for Android has decided I'm French. Everything in settings is set to UK English and locale to current, in both Firefox and Google. On my laptop everything is fine, but on my phone all google results (although in the English language) are from France and shopping results in Euros. I have deleted the app, I have cleared the data, I have re-installed multiple times, but nothing has worked. All other browsers work fine, with the correct results from UK and in pound sterling, but in Firefox for Android it's France and Euro's. Is this some mind experiment?

The firefox app always rotates to landscape mode if I turn my phone. I can find a setting that locks the screen for the phone itself, and it appears to stop other apps from rotating, but firefox doesn't seem to care if I have screenlock set to on and just keeps on rotating.
