I do not use Google. If you are controlled by Google please let me know so I can make other choices.

Is there an APK repository or on your site I can go to for the android app?

Thanks

Hi everyone. I hope you're doing well.

So, I've been thinking about downloading the Firefox browser for Android but I am worried.

I saw this among the app permissions on Google Play Store: "download files without notification". And I am worried.

And I need to know:

- What files does Firefox download without notification?

- Why does Firefox download files without notification?

- When does Firefox download files without notification?

- Why and how should I trust an app to the have the ability to download anything it desires at anytime it desires without my knowledge or my choice to accept or decline?

Could you please help me and tell how this app is safe?

Thanks. Have a good day!

Samsung Smart Switch & copying open tabs

This night be a question for Samsung.

I am testing some Samsung Galaxy Z Flip phones. I used Smart Switch to migrate from my S10 to a Flip 3. Firefox was entirely mirror copied. Even the phone name on Firefox was copied and it was logged into my Firefox account on the Flip 3. All open tabs were on the Flip 3, even inactive tabs. A mirror copy.

I did this again from the Flip 3 to a Flip 4. Same result. Then repeated that to another Flip 4, (being the same model I thought this would be no problem) but all I have is a fresh install of Firefox. Account login, tabs, nothing was copied. I've repeated this process using Smart Switch about 6 times now trying a few things like ensuring Firefox is removed on the destination, updating the destination OS etc.

Is there a better option? Is there something in a newer version of Firefox that prevents Smart Switch from copying the current cached files and this state?

Thank you.

t would be okay if sync worked. First, sync does not work.

Then, when trying to post a question about why it is not working, all the buttons controlling sync are no longer findable on my phone.

Here is what I think the answer is: Whoever is responsible for managing the Firefox interface is doing a horrible job.

Do you have another explanation?

My google account has informed me that some of my information has been found in data breaches on the dark web. This included a list of information found. Where a password has been compromised, the list gives the 1st 3 characters of the password followed by ******. No website information is given. My query ..... Is there a way of searching my passwords held in Firefox to find this password so that I can change it? Firefox stores my passwords, how do I find a particular password without knowing the website it is associated with?

Hello all,

Recently, I was browsing a website when Firefox (Windows 10, version 122) suddenly showed me an info bar asking me to turn on DRM content. While the message seems clear, I still wish to ask if it may be possible that websites force Firefox to download DRM modules and load them against my choice (and if possible to explain, how Firefox knows that DRM content is present on the page to begin with).

A copy of the pop-up I found online is attached to this post.

Thank you all in advance!

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.
