I was looking for the settings button on the Firefox Android app but cannot find it in its usual place in the meatball menu in the bottom right (I have the search/tabs bar set at the bottom of the screen). Please see attached screenshot. Could you please let me know where the settings button has been moved to? I can't find it by myself, and as this seems to be a relatively recent change I can't find anything online/in the FAQ about where it might have gone. Thank you! :)

Scrolling leads to a refresh of the website

I have the problem that Firefox does not correctly recognize when I want to scroll up on a web page. This often causes me to accidentally refresh the page. Usually this should only happen when I'm already at the top of the website and then swipe down again and not in the middle of the website. I have even tried Firefox Nightly and Klar, but the issue occurs with every browser. Is there perhaps some trick or hidden setting that causes the browser to scroll reasonably again instead of constantly refreshing the website?

Hello, I recently tried to create an account to sync everything in firefox on my phone, but after a few attempts the account page just wouldn't load, so I decided to update the app because it was quite some time ago since I last updated it.

But right after the update, everything's gone: bookmarks, history, tabs. I was brought to a getting started page like I never installed firefox. I checked the bookmarks/history options but nothing was there. Shouldn't the app preserve its existing data even after an update? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Bookmarks not migrated to new phone after using "copy apps & data"

Hey,

I had to replace my Android phone and send the old one in. I had the google cloud backup activated + used the transfer data and apps function when migrating (Android to Android). However, it seems like my bookmarks are gone, I guess there is no way to get them back. Is this correct behavior?

I understand that there is Firefox sync and save feature (which I use on my personal device). However my understanding was that migrating phones with the "copy apps & data" function should migrate things seamless without having to worry about custom logins in each app. Did I do something wrong? Or is this understanding wrong? If so, would this be different in ios (this was a very painful experience that I don't want to repeat)?

Thanks for your help & sorry if this is only partially Firefox specific and partially about my general understanding.

Hi All,

On desktop I have uBlock Origin and in the Sync list option "add ons" it ticked.

On Android I can't see "add ons" in the Sync list option and if I go to the add ons settings I can only see the Recommended. uBlock Origin is listed but it looks like I have to install it again on Android, it is not automatically there.

Is this normal? Do I have to reinstall it?

Thanks

Hi there,

Is the script in this product bypassing Firefox privacy fences? I do not understand what they promote, but I have not a good feeling after reading their explanation. https://confection.io/scripts/click-engage-xbox-com/.

But I hope Firefox can do something against this possible new threat.
