I'm running the latest version of firefox on my redmi note 12 with android 14. When I try to add a website to homepage, I get a pop up to name the shortcut, but when I click add, nothing happens, it just closes the menu, and no shortcut is added to my homepage. It used to work perfectly on my Mi A1 with android 9.

In about.config i set javascript.enabled false for most browsing, unless i really need to do otherwise (e.g. ecommerce). If i close the app (menu quit), and restart it, javacript.enabled is reset true. This behaviour is not replicated for other settings i may make, e.g. dom.storage.enabled, or permissions.default.image. Being Android i have no root so no possibility of creating a user.js to override Firefox ignoring my settings. This seems to be a bug. Version is Android Nightly version 121.0a1, 2023-11-05.

Hi. first of all, your android app is awesome. That you can listen to videos or YT videos when the app is minimalized or the phone screen is locked is great feature. BUT I am not used to it and I would prefer to change the settings so when I lock the screen the video automatically pauses and does not keep playing....

Any way to achieve that??? Thanks !

Sometimes I have a need to copy or edit part of very long URL that includes many passed parameters and tokens in address bar of FireFox for Android. Having to swipe twenty times to get to required position in string is not very convenient comparing to ease of such procedure on PC where you have mouse and Home/End keys.

I'd like to request for a new feature of on/off toggle for address bar in FF for Android that could switch it into multiline edit mode where all URL would be visible and easily navigated and edited. I just don't know where to submit it.

I'm at my wits end. This issue started yesterday morning, and is still persisting, and I'm not quite sure what to do at this point other than use Chrome for One Singular Website and nothing else.

Currently, the website does the following:

  1. I open a new tab on this website.
  2. It asks me to log in.
  3. I select "Log in with Google".
  4. Firefox asks me "Prevent this site from opening a pop-up window?" and includes a link to the Google login doohickey.
  5. I tap "ALLOW" which opens the Google login doohickey in a new tab, where I sign in with my Google account.
  6. It goes back to the original tab, not having logged me in.

Previously, it would not give me a message about the pop-up, and would work fine. Presumably, asking this "Are you sure?" causes something to break with this one website's sign-in.

I have tried with Enhanced Tracking Protection set to Standard (default), Strict, and Custom, disabling all security features and throwing caution to the wind. None of these have fixed it.

I've tried going to about:config, since that was mentioned in a similar support post on here. It just leads me back to the tab I already have open, seemingly not doing Anything.

I've looked through every tab in settings, including Site permissions, and there is No Menu Option at all for pop-ups.

This was a very recent change, and only started giving me problems in February.
