I have data(Bookmarks,saved logins etc) on my android device I need synced to my PC. But the sync option in android doesn't work. The option to scan QR code doesn't work at all. The camera just shows black. Login through email just shows a non-responding Sync now option and greyed out sync choices. Please help me somehow sync it or at least export the data to my PC.

Login window for Basic Authentication disappears after returning from the password manager

Hello everybody, Since the last major update (the address bar can be seen at the bottom of the display since the update), the login to a website via Basic Authentication no longer works if I use the Keepass2Android password manager to enter the password. If I want to log into a website using Basic Authentication with Firefox, the dialog box for entering a username and password appears first. In the Username field, instead of entering the name, I choose the function "Fill in with Keepass2Android". It then switches to the Keepass2Android app and I select an entry there. After the selection, it will switch back to Firefox for Android. The input field for username and password is filled and can only be seen for a fraction of a second before it disappears. However, it is not possible to register without pressing the "OK" button and I cannot access the website. I've already tried every possible setting in both Firefox and Keepass2Android. Unfortunately without success. A new version of Keepass2Android has not been released in the meantime, so that the cause is very likely to be due to the new Firefox version. I'm using a Samsung A50 with Android 10. Thank you in advance for your support. I am at your disposal for questions. regards Michael

Hello

I have installed the latest firefox update on my Samsung mobile phone (in french) 81.1.4, however I cannot find any menu setting to activate a primary password like on all the other firefox apps I'm using on my laptop and home PC.

How can this be controlled as I find it very dangerous having anyone access my phone and able to check the password mananger and view all passwords without entering a primary password. Thank you for your help.

Hello,

I got logged out of my Firefox account on Firefox for Android. However I am synced to my Firefox account on the desktop Firefox, and I also have my recovery key.

On Firefox for Android, when I click "Forgot your password?", I get a page asking me to enter my email address and to click a "reset" button. But it is written that resetting my password means resetting my account.

I don't want to reset my account, so how do I use the recovery key I have? Does the "reset" button send me an email which will offer me the possibility to use the recovery key?

This process is not very clear, thanks in advance for your help!

O problema ocorre apenas no Firefox Android quando faço downloads de PDF: é baixado um arquivo de 3k que ao tentar ser aberto por leitor de PDF, diz estar corrompido. Isso ocorre tanto no Firefox Android do telefone Samsung Galaxy S10e, quanto no Tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab S6Lite. No computador os downloads ocorrem automaticamente. Aparentemente isso tem ocorrido apenas em arquivos de internet cujo link disponibiliza "visualizar" no navegador e não download direto. No Computador surgiu disponível a opção "o que fazer quando clicar em links assim", cuja minha opção foi download automático. Nos dispositivos Android esta opção não existe, e acredito que por isso não ocorra o download, mas apenas de um arquivo corrompido de 3k. Não encontrei solução nas resumidas opções de configuração do Firefox Android. Existe alguma solução?

When visiting some websites such as PornHub, sliding your finger across a video while scrolling down the page can preview the video in some browsers. But on Firefox Android, it seems to show only a lame still-image slideshow for the preview. Is this something I can change? Thanks.

After my firefox got upgraded to the newest version 81.0.2 in android tablet, the firefox is missing from 'Open with' list. Previous, when I try to open my downloaded or saved html file, the firefox app is one of the 'Open with' list. However, after the firefox is auto upgraded, the firefox app is gone from the open list. I tried to installed serveral file manager, all of them can not see firefox. Is there a bug or some setting I missed? I tried set firefox as default app, which does not help.

I am really amazed to see that how can the developers miss a very important and conspicuous feature that should've been there already on Firefox for Android.

There is absolutely no option to search a specific entry within the search history on phone. Obviously that should be there.

I have attached a screenshot for the same. Please have a look.

this is the second firefox update i have downloaded on my android tablets, and none of them work anymore, when you open firefox the tablets reboot after 5 seconds... I hate to say this but your latest version of firefox for android has caused me to switch to google chrome... I have been using firefox and its predecessor netscape since 1995... Why would you pass along an update version that does not work to people... I have 7 tablets in my household and all 7 are doing this...

Hi, I am not really that happy with the latest version of Firefox android and i have used it for years.

I used to really like that my bookmarks were the first thing that showed when i opened Firefox and i never had the issue i am having now either.

Before this new version i would tap on one of my bookmarks and a new refreshed version of that site would always load, i am finding that to make things a a bit quicker and still have some sort of bookmarks on my home screen i have had to add sites either to collections or to what you now call top sites.

I don't know why i can't just have my bookmarks on the front as they are the sites i always go to and the way you have changed it has just made it hard to do things, i feel like i shouldn't have had to setup collections and top sites just to have the same thing?

The main issue is that when i tap on sites from top sites or collections a copy of the last time i visited that site shows and i have to refresh it every time to get the latest content, this is especially a nuisance for news sites such as bbc etc. this didn't happen prior when i used to just select the site i wanted from my bookmarks?

I know tapping on the top right and going to bookmarks isn't exactly hard, but you have made it all 'feel' harder than it was before, it was easy to open multiple sites from bookmarks before as well and now that feels hard to having to long press and then select all the sites i want to open first.

Is there any way the issue regarding sites not opening with the latest contents be fixed and if this isn't an issue as such as far as you see it, could there be at least an option in settings so that people then have to option to load an old cached copy of sites to make loading faster or to load new contents so that the user has the option?

Regards

James
