I'm fed up with Mozilla nuking important extension I need for browsing and breaking stuff.

Extensions that add things to context menu such as Image Search Options are not showing, and no other similar extension will be of use to me even if it was working on mobile.

I will code myself a solution that work on mobile for me to use. I just want to know exactly who to add things to the context menu for Firefox on Android. Don't bother explaining anything else to me, I just want to fix that especific part that is broken.

Hello!

I'm currently using Firefox nightly for Android, simply for the reason of installing custom add-ons, rather than having to choose from the given list.

I've followed this guide so far: [https://www.ghacks.net/2020/10/01/you-can-now-install-any-add-on-in-fi...]

And I've added the 3 extensions I need at, by signing in with this very Firefox account: [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../collections/]

My problem is when I attempt to add a custom Add-on collection, it asks me: Collection owner (User ID) What is my User ID? How do I add my custom collection so I can use my own add-ons? Apologies in advance if this is a silly question and I'm missing something obvious.

I have to use the reload button often, because pages will often show outdated cached versions. How can I get the reload button back on the main toolbar, so I can reach it with one click?

NOTE: Existing solutions provided in the forums which were based on about:config usage have been effectively thwarted. Please provide suggestions which work for the Release version. (Yes, it makes life more difficult)

I am using Firefox for Android on my Samsung Tab A.

I have long-time carpal tunnel and sometimes my fingers kind of drag on the screen, I guess, because it constantly activates a pop up that comes in front of my screen and asks me if I want to save or share this image. I have never used this popup to save or share images but it's always in the way. I wish I could just turn it off so I could relax my hand and browse, without it always getting in the way. Please tell me there is a way.

Man this app has gone down hill. The Samsung browser is so much better this this thing but I need it for the sync. Why can't you create browser as good as Samsung, it has FULL controls and an ACTUAL tool bar. I guess you are just dumming the app down.

The previous version of Firefox on android allowed you to block images etc when using mobile data, so that it didn't chew through your data too fast.

Is this feature available in the current version? If not, is there an indication on when this might be available?

This was an awesome feature for those of us with a small monthly data allowance.

I have Firefox set as my default browser on my Pixel phone running the latest security update from Google. When I click a link that opens in app, it gives me a temporary window/browser for just use with that app. This is how it should work. My problem comes in with my use of NoScript and it doing it's job (often leaving the page unable to load,) but I have no access to the addon to ok any scripts without transferring the whole thing to the primary browser, which to me is self-defeating. I currently have NoScript set to run in both private and regular tabs. Is there a way to access the add-ons from that temporary window browser? OR Is it only running in it because I have it set to run in private tabs as well?

This is as much a question as it is feedback from someone who is running Firefox as my primary browser on Android.

Thanks for your time, Damon

Hello, when i dowload a pdf file with my Samsung A71 and want to open it, i don't get acrobat as a proposition to download it. Instead i get a proposition of applications which are useless for this purpose like garmin connect, stocard etc. I search on the internet but didn't find any solution. I would be grateful for your help as i really would like to stay with firefox instead of using Samsung internet where i don't have this problem.
