I have a misspelt item in my history (of ~15000 items) which is often offered as a suggestion. I would like to delete that item from history (but not the entirety of the history). Is this possible without scrolling back through literal years worth of browsing data to find the one incident of the misspelt site?

Hi there

On some sites I use, their aps are next to useless as are their mobile sites. I want to be able to access the REAL websites but when I change the URL (e.g. change m.twitch.tv to just twitch.tv) it simply redirects to the mobile site again. How can I force it to show me the full web page instead please ?

Many thanks

Missing Forward/Back buttons when playing videos & frequent pauses to load content.

1. Recently (two weeks or more) I have noticed that the Forward and Back (10 second) buttons have been missing on my Android phone (ATT Samsung S22+) when playing videos. They are just to the right of the play clocks at the bottom left of the video image. I checked and they are still there for the same videos played on my desktop, so I know that this is not due to the content provider. Is this a mistake, oversight in a recent upgrade, or do I have to switch browsers?

2. For a lot longer than the missing buttons in #1 above, my phone occasionally gives the whirling circle that indicates that it is loading content. In the past when it stopped to load, it restarted in the exact same place, and I didn't miss anything. But now, for some time it seems like the video continues to run so that when the load catches up, the video picks up sometime later than when it stopped, so I miss some of the video. There was a workaround before you took the Forward/Back buttons away, because I could just back up to the point that the video stopped, but now it is a royal pain to get back to the correct spot. In my darker moments, I might think that this is a conspiracy, to make me miss important parts of my videos, but then I come back down to Earth.

I really want the buttons back because I use the Forward button to skip content that I am not interested in, and if you could give me some cure for the frequent loading pauses I would be grateful.

This behavior can also be observed in Youtube, for example. After exiting the full screen, the Youtube search bar is no longer visible. It reappears when you rotate the device and sometimes also when you scroll down or zoom in and out. Unfortunately, this does not work on websites that are not scrollable. There the hidden content (mostly the header) is only visible again after rotating the device (reloading has no effect). This seems to be a similiar bug: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303054 or this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20636580/firefox-for-android-address-bar-overlaps-content-is-there-a-solution On my Android tablet, first the Android navigation bar overlaps the website and then after a fullscreen and fullscreen exit, the address bar overlaps instead. It would be nice if these "address bar overlaps content" or "navigation bar overlaps content" bugs could be permanently fixed, especially since I have not found a way to work around the bug through javascript.

Hi everyone,

I was happy with it but I realized several months ago than websites as leboncoin.fr, amazon.fr, decathlon.fr (yes i'm french), didn't keep me loged in but remember what I had looked for and where I was. This problem is permanent.

I don't have this problem with Firefox for Windows.

So it seems something is nor cleared from the app when I close it.

Thank you very much for your help !

For sometime now I have been unable to access my Bell email on Firefox except if I use private browsing and then it allows me to get to my login and by default allows me to enter my login and password. But if I don't use privacy browsing mode, I cannot get to my email. This is on my android Samsung phone btw. Bell tells me it's a browser issue and that I'm to contact Firefox or switch to Chrome or Edge, but I'd rather do it through Firefox. Can anyone assist as to how I can correct this issue?

Ive come back to firefox for android after a year of using other browser,bbut there is no setting i can find.

1, i visit a login page The page has the username but the password field is blank.

2, i select the link at bottom tbat says passwords.

3, a list pops up, and one of the listed items is to pick a saved password.

4, i pick the saved password, then all the urls are in the background while a thumprint security check is showing.

5, i put my thumb on the screen and now it lets me see all the saved passwords.

6, i select the correct url whos password is the right one.

7, it returns back to the original login page BLANK

It seams to me auto fill is switched on, but its not working, or the thumbnail security is blacking the transfer.

So ive deleted the url and password saved, there was only one, then ive gone to the login page and typed in the username and password, enter. Firefox asks if i wish to save the logon details, i do

But each time i go to the login page the password is blank?

I should add the url is a link to my network drives, so its an ip address like 192.168.x.xx

So ehy is android firefox no longer inserting the details, its the latest version, ive also cleared cache both, and it losds firefox as if its the first time i ran it. I set everything up to what i want, auto login is on.

I sign in with my account and sync brings back my desktop bookmarks saved logins etc.

Still there is only one url saved, ive seen this happen sometimes when thete is 2 saved logins for same url, but right now there is only one saved bookmark, and only one saved user name and password.

Anything i can do, or back to the browser i was using. Ive used the new android fitefox ever since it updated to the new one, most of the time it sat ln my phone unused, so i made sure jt had no update.

Sorry this is long, but ill be told to make sure the suto fill or auto login is on. Ive been through sll its settings.

Thanks

John

Whenever I type "goo" into the address bar, it will prefill with "google.co.uk"

i haven't visited uk version of google in years and have been using .com forever

but recently firefox decided to offer me .co.uk version for some reason and now i always have to delete the prefill and type manually which is time consuming and annoying

i tried clearing history, deleted all history, removed app, reinstalled app, deleted cache and local data, logged out of my firefox account .. changed language to something other than English (UK) but it still thinks it needs to prefill the .co.uk URL

why did it go crazy all of a sudden and how do i make it stop?
