Hi,

I am an avid user of Firefox on Windows/Linux/Android. The password saving/auto-filling works great on my Windows and Linux devices. I like that the master password allows me to authenticate before any user credentials are filled in. I did however notice that on my Android Phone, there's no way to force authentication when filling in user credentials. I consider this a great privacy risk, considering that if anyone were to get access to my phone, they would without any hassle get access to a bunch of my accounts. I checked in the settings, and I cannot find a setting for it anywhere.

I am running the latest version of Firefox from Google Play. Firefox version: 84.1.4 (Build #2015785883) Phone: Samsung S10 running Android 10

Thank you.

Hi, since migrating to FF daylight, the tabs I specifically want to display under their Desktop version always reset to mobile version. Prior to updating FF, the option would remain specific to each tab and unchanged regardless of closing the app or just switching tab. Now it always resets by default to Desktop version. This is very annoying.

HTTPS checking - Android and Adguard with Firefox

Hello all, my first post because I am trying to move from Chrome to something less 'information hungry' and up to now Firefox feels like a sensible move.

I have been using AdGuard for about a year and it is good at what it does (on Chrome on Windows and Android). On Windows, Adguard and Firefox seem to work together but when installed on Android they do not play nicely!! Virtually every website is inaccessible due to Security Certificate problems.

There is a solution posted by Adguard to install a security certificate but this is comlex for me as a non IT geek so not happy about even trying that.

Question - if I switch off Adguard on Firefox (this is easy in Adguard settings) does the Firefox HTTPS checker do as good a job with regard to HTTPS requirements over and above HTTP websites? This would be a simple solution (for me) unless anyone can offer an equally (or nearly so) solution.

Any help appreciated. Thanks, Frank

I'm using Firefox v79.0.5 on Android 10, and a browser behavior has apparently changed.

Used to be that if I opened a link that was active on a tab, that tab would become current.

Now, when I open a link, it always opens a new tab, so that I have 2 (or more) tabs displaying the same link.

Is there a control/setting I can use to restore the old behavior?

Thanks in advance.

good morning, on my new smartphone, NOKIA 5.1 PLUS with android 10 security patch October 2020, I have installed Firefox (as previously on all other smartphones). I'm having a problem with downloading documents from sites (any type of PDF-JPG-ZIP .... etc). The downloads start but then do not download anything (you can see the download arrow at the top of the smartphone). Shortly after he goes wrong. I tried to uninstall and reinstall without solving. You can help me? thanks Federico

I'm using the Firefox Sync to sync my bookmarks between my windows desktop and mobile. No problems with the sync itself, but on mobile, I have to click Menu / Bookmarks / Desktop Bookmarks / Bookmarks Menu to see my bookmarks. For a feature that is supposed to provide convenience, this seems to be very inconvenient.

Is there any way to get to my sync'd bookmarks faster on Android?

I have a new phone and I'm experiencing a strange problem with Bing search engine on Firefox for Android. When I get my search results in Bing and I want to go to images or videos tab, my keyboard appears briefly, and nothing happens. I cannot open any search results, nothing. I have to refresh the page in order to click on any search results. Images and videos tab still not working and if I try to click it again everything will be frozen all over again.

I'm still learning how to use a touchscreen Android device (Moto G4 phone, just used as a device, at home, no SIM card). I don't yet know the names for various functions on the device so apologies for using the wrong terms. When I "Quit" Firefox Daylight v 84 7 Jan, on Android 12 (the latest version my Moto will take) (swipe down, press the 3 dots icon next to the tabs icon, select Quit, and it closes then deletes my browsing history as set in settings and appears to close down), the next time I press the square Moto icon (in the group of three - the back arrow, the circle for minimising, and the square to reveal which apps are running, up pops Firefox again, along with any other running apps. If I then press the x at the top rhs of the not maximised firefox window, it goes away and does not reappear again unless I start it with the home screen icon or click a browser link. It appears as if "Quit" doesn't close firefox but the x on the non-maximised window does? Can anyone explain this to me - please be gentle. Does Quit not mean quit? Should I really be closing Firefox by pressing the x icon and just ignoring the Quit command? Thanks for the help.
