I keep finding people answering this question with click here click there.

Clear browser on exit suppose to automatically clear history, this is a serious problem.

Why is this being ignored, this browser is no longer safe to use, clean install on Android phone

Yes, Android, not any other system that people keep telling me to check, and they talk as if the windows version is the same.

Has the team stopped Firefox for Android?

I give up now, need to use a safe chrome browser now

Using Firefox for Android on new Samsung phone. Some text on web sites appears garbled, like some letters came loose and landed on others on that line. Sometimes turning the phone sideways fixes it, temporarily. Is there anything I can do?

Today, I decided to switch to Firefox from chrome and setting it up has been a headache. It took multiple logins for my imported passwords to show and now sync isn't working. Logging in to both PC and phone only synced my data once. I can't send links between devices. I try using the pair feature but each time I scan, I get a page showing "Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within the Firefox app" Even though I did pair from the Firefox app. I have tried multiple times, always the same issue. Device: Umdigi A7 Pro OS: Android 10 Browser version: The latest on both PC and Mobile

Why is it not an option to turn it on permanently? Most of the web pages I visit cripple my experience because of that crippled mobile view forced by many sites and albo forced by Firefox for android. It's like children view, a view for a person that never used a smartphone, a person that is sluggish, with very thick fingers, that shouldn't maybe use smartphone at all. Desktop version is the best browser the is for PC with tons of addons and is very customizeable and somehow the mobile version tries hard to never be. To be honest I have enough of that mobile experience and probably will switch back to Opera

Until about a week ago sync worked fine to my knowledge and I could look at saved logins on my Note 8 which were sync'd with my W10 desktop. Now FF sync on Note 8 will NOT update and show me saved logins and passwords, pressing the button does NOTHING. It doesn't even open a new page, absolutely nothing. My bookmarks will sync with desktop but NOT passwords/logins.

It is weird because when I go to a website and login, my Note8 does show suggested logins like it always has but in FF you cannot look at saved logins any longer?

Also noticed that under Note 8 accounts and backup, FF is NOT even listed as an account and I thought it used to be listed there.

I know that when I changed FF pw on my Note 8 it deleted the password/logins. But seeing as how they are still showing up on my desktop, obviously they are still saved in FF

Hello, Recently I encounterd a strange bug wherein I simply cannot open a new tab in Firefox for Android. Everytime I do so, it just resets the same page to the default homepage. Same on both regular and private browsing.

I have gone through the forums and found nothing useful for this situation. So far I've tried: 1. Removing all extensions 2. Completly reinstalling Firefox from both the Play Store and F Droid. 3. Upgrading to the beta and Nightly versions to see if it's just a bug

No luck, I'm honestly stumped as what to do. Currently the jank setup I have is to open some random link in a new tab and then look up what I want in said tab, but this cannot continue.

I'm on a Poco F1, running Android 11 with Firefox for Android v87.0.0-rc.1

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.
