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

1. Does VPN replace internet security program (I currently have Norton 360) and all its attending features such as anti-virus, firewall etc? 2. When I go online to shop or research topics, these sites often suggest that I allow their "extensions" to be added to my devices to "enhance" my experience on their sites or so they can provide me with more "relevant" information to me. With VPN installed how will this affect my interactions with these sites? Are these extensions only a guise for these companies to collect my personal information ?

Using multiple profiles / identities in Firefox for Android

On desktop, I use separate Firefox profiles for my work and for my private contexts. This avoids my employer tracking my private browsing habits and satisfies my other privacy and compliance concerns when accessing company resources. Both profiles use different Firefox Sync accounts so that my data is backed up, and so I can restore contexts even if I switch workstations.

I want to achieve a similar separation for my mobile browsing experience with Firefox. I want to have two "profiles", even if switching requires some manual work, so that I cleanly separate private from work-time browsing on my Android phone.

Is this achieved, or has the multi-profile approach been gutted from Firefox for Android?

Hi, it is unpractical to keep wiping the firefox history every time I exit the app and leave the phone down. Is there no other way of setting a homepage that wont show the last sites i was at. There are kids in the house who may lift the phone and use the browser and I dont want them seeing the surprise gifts or otherwise I have purchased online. A start page with ebay, amazon, etc etc showing up everytime tends to give the surprise away. Its such a basic feature that I have never seen missing from a browser until I got an android phone. It seems odd to have a perfectly functioning version of firefox on 4 pc's and 3 laptops in the house but having to use a different browser on my mobile.

From Android 4.0 it's possible to bind a proxy to a specific ssid. In that way every application works with the wifi using the chosen proxy. However, this doesn't happen with firefox, because it use no proxy by default and you have to set it up manually. Does the current version of firefox mobile support system proxy settings? If not, when is it supposed to be implemented? It's kinda annoying having to manually set the proxy every time :/

androidの「設定」→「アプリケーション」でfirefoxの情報を参照するとインストール直後にくらべ、データの大きさが極端に肥大している。 これにともない、プライベートデータの消去のレスポンスが段々悪くなっていく。

プライベートデータの消去で、実際には履歴の消去が行われていないのではないでしょううか?
