On certain sites that should be secure, it says 'insecure connection' This has been happening for a month or more.

I tried force stopping my anti malware software to see if it was causing this and it wasn't. I also tried disabling a add on I recently installed and it wasn't causing the problem either. This concerns me because this may compromise my security.

It started crashing yesterday, so I tried to use it several times but it kept crashing. My Nook started acting weird right after that, it would restart it self but get stuck, so I had to turn it off. It did that several times then seemed fine. I tried using Firefox again after 24 hrd but it crashed again and wouldn't even let me send report. Then right away all my programs stsrted flashing that they were stopping and then it tried to restart it self again and got stuck again. I was freaked out thatit was damaging my Nook so I tried to uninstall but it wouldn't finish it before jumping to restart again and getting stuck. I have left it off and putting this message thru on my phone. Please HELP me, thanks.

Adult content websites are loading - unwanted - whilst i am viewing normal sites I have searched for myself (on an android phone). I have run virus checkers, results negative; changed router settings; installed a no-root firewall; all no help. Any ideas as to what's going on and how to get rid of it? Meanwhile, I'd likr to blacklist the individual sites as they crop up.

I just want to be able to click an X to close Firefox on my Android phone and have it come up with my default homepage from scratch the next time I launch it. I do NOT want to have to kill the app or hit the back button a billion times, competing with pages trying to reload content, before I can get back to the first page loaded on launch then close. Once I've found what I'm looking for it's no longer needed and if I do want to return to it I can set a bookmark. Please consider this feature request.

Good morning Sirs, I have been using Firefox for more than 8 years now. I am really satisfied with it. I just have one little problem. I usually use the reading mode a lot but when reading in Arabic, the language must be from right to left not the opposite. Kindly, try to fix it as soon as possible.

Warm regards, Khalid

The same features should be in Firefox.

why does Firefox for Android require so many permissions?

The Firefox homepage is constantly broadcasting privacy incentives and ways we can donate to improve a free web, yet they need the permission to access my camera, mic, files and so on in exchange for the use of their program? I find this very contradictory, and would love to hear more from Firefox. I understand that certain permissions are necessary but i find the request for these things to be intrusive and upsetting when it's coming from a company that pats itself on the back when it comes to privacy and the fight for a free and open Internet.

Please at least provide the option to turn permissions that aren't necessary for the operation of Firefox on Android, off. Camera and mic, are not integral parts of my web search past time and therefore, i don't believe they are any of the Mozilla corporations interest either.

If there are ways to get back some of the privacy taken away by these requests using Android, as i understand getting away from all these permissions from every app is futile.. Please let me know. Maybe an app that retains some of these permissions, or blocks access to apps from accessing then? If there are suggestions out there I'm open to suggestions, thank you.
