I'm trying to set my DNS settings in Firefox Nightly to a custom service. But i am having nothing but problems.

"Firefox Nightly 128.0a1 (Build #2016025199)"

I want to use one of these settings for the secured w/ECS:Malware blocking, DNSSEC Validation, ECS enabled.

My only problem is I'm not sure which format of the address options I should be inputting in the DNS settings in the about:config

Please help.

Secured w/ECS: Malware blocking, DNSSEC Validation, ECS enabled

IPv4 9.9.9.11 149.112.112.11

IPv6 2620:fe::11 2620:fe::fe:11

HTTPS https://dns11.quad9.net/dns-query

TLS tls://dns11.quad9.net

P S. Yes I know I can set a custom DNS address in the connections settings of my android device. And it works most of the time. I however want my own settings in the browser itself.

Thank you in advance

Hi, I have used Firefox on my Android and laptop for a long time and now have an issue with my Android version on a Samsung S20. A fresh tab seems ok till I Google something, it then is very dark and does not display my usual 'All' appearance, it appears as what I would describe as adverts. I do not have any 3rd party Firefox plugins installed, its 100% pure Firefox. Can I restore to a previous point, can you help me please? The screen shot looks as if I have a dark mode of some sort but I dont.

Im running Ver 126.0.1 Build # 2016023311

Thanks

I haven't logged in for quite a while. When I tried to login today, the password was automatically added via the "Saved Passwords", and i was able to log in, although I recognized it as an old password, and It was different that what I currently show in my third party password manager.

When i tried the password from third party password manager, it was rejected.

I tried to change it in my Firefox password database. The odd thing during the process was that when Firefox automatically added the Firefox database stored password to the current password to be changed field, it added the latest password, the same one that is stored in my third party password manager, not the old password that it filled in on the login page.

I am using Samsung S23 with the latest One UI and Android 14. Samsung's built-in browser has a neat feature where you can open YouTube or Reddit links in the apps installed on the device instead of viewing them in the mobile version of the website in the browser. I assume that Firefox has the same functionality called "Open links in apps" in the settings, but I tried all the available options and neither YouTube or Reddit links are automatically opened in their respective apps, nor is there a button anywhere to force them to open in the apps. Am I doing or assuming something wrong, or is this a bug?

What is the significance of a different browser when the search engine is Google anyway? And if I use a search engine other than Google, I will lose the benefits of Google Maps, the Google keyboard (for example, entering through a microphone) Basically, Google has a monopoly. Is that so?!

Hello...my question is if I should go ahead and cancel my account? Ive been hacked and they are even changing my settings - as well as in my add ons. They've even added some that I did not choose. They are adding many site addresses and marking them as trusted when they shouldn't be. I even am not able/allowed to clickk on certain boxes...likke when I try to add a proxy. I think they operate in real time. I just think it mighht be best to cancel for my own security. I don't know what they are capable of doing.

I didn't even create my account. But it had my email addresses. So I changed the password immediately. I know it is some sort of organization because I always receive error messages saying "Access Denied", "Contact your Administrator" or "Contact your IT Department."

Are you at all able to possibly help me? I do plan to file a police report, but it would be very advantageous to me if I could offer them more information and hopefully press charges because this has been going on since I moved to the Netherlands 7 years ago. And no antivirus/antimalware works. Even repairs, factory resets and buying new phones haven't helped me either. As you know, there are very strict privacy laws here.

Ok, thank you very much for your time and any assistance or advice.

I am trying to add some screenshots (where it says to add images) and it won't even allow me to do that.

I want my context menu in Firefox for Android to be as clean as possible. But there are annoying actions in it: Search in Edge and "Create Note" that runs Microsoft Edge and Microsoft OneDrive respectively. I need these apps from time to time so I don't want to uninstall them. Is there a way to turn off this integration between Firefox and Microsoft-related apps?

Thanks.
