Remove top sites and other customizations for Firefox for Android

I've seen that a similar post was marked 'solved' but as there is no workaround, surely it should be left open.

I've been using Firefox since 2005 - almost always on Windows - though have used it on Linux. I recently got an Android tablet and was shocked at how (let's say) different, the browser is on the platform.

Tabs have been taken from the top of the screen and moved to the left. No easy dropdowns for favorite sites and worst of all, there is some ridiculous 'Top Sites' feature. I really dont see the need for such a feature as my 'top sites' would be in my favourites..

If top sites is anything like the desktop version (which thankfully was easy to get rid of) then it could potentially show a screen with my banking details (balance etc) to anyone that uses firefox on a shared tablet.

A ridiculous security oversight.. Why can we not set a homepage to a website or whatever we want? I would also like to see some further customisation options for tablets. We have a lot of screen real-estate, you know..

I see that the top sites thing is being looked at but can you please leave at least one post open to post updates.. I will be installing Firefox again but will have to use something else in the meantime - at least until I can get user profiles on my Galaxy 10.1 in 4.2.

I cannot get the lockpref to work. RH6.3, Firefox 18.

I created mozilla.cfg at:

   /usr/lib64/firefox   

It contains two lines:

   //
   lockpref ("security.enable_ssl3", true);

I created local-settings at:

   /usr/lib64/firefox/default/preferences

It contains two lines: pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");

When I goto about:config, it still shows security.enable_ssl3 false.

any ideas???

Missing Firefox Command Line

Hi, Version Auror 20.0

I have two problems with Firefox aurora android 20.

1) Kindle fire hd. I can't access the set-up the firefox button. I only have the address bar which gives me access to the 3 dots which gives very limited control. I cannot reset or start in safe mode no access to those unless maybe from command line and thats not allowed without voiding the warranty. Yes i have read solutions on the net but they all say click on this or that which i don't have and if i could access the firefox button that would be great and solve some of my issues. The problem may well be its in full screen mode but i cannot get out of full screen mode - again the suggestions I see are not relevant I don't have the buttons they suggest clicking on - namely the firefox button. The kindle fire hd does not have an ALT key.

2) the second and related problem is the "awesome asearch bar" which is notably unawesome in that everything I type in is assumed to be a web address and also eternally and incorrectly autocompletes which is a huge pain so the only way to search is to load the search engine web page. Entering about:config in address bar does not work for the above. I have no way to change or control the search engine provider without access to the config. Don't say click on the search provider logo in the address bar there is none (logo).

I have been using firefox for many years and was happy we have a version stable on kindle fire hd (20.0 aurora earlier versions don't run) but have to admit i don't like the lack of control. Why can't you turn on in private browsing permanently as per desktop its immensely annoying having to select each time similarly why can't you select load desktop as a permanent selection - at least on mine it unchecks after each load- and even then you have load every website that uses a mobile site twice to get a desktop version. I haven't yet seen a mobile website version I liked. At the moment have gone back to Dolphin which i don't like but is less frustrating than using the aurora and comparing it all the time to the excellent desktop version.

Hi, I have installed a CA-Cert onto the android device through: Settings > Security > Credential Storage > Install from device storage.

The CA-Cert is visible and installed successfully.

When I try to make an SSL connection via https:// I get:

"This Connection is Untrusted" Technical Details: The certificate is not trusted because the issuer is not trusted.

When I remove the CA-Cert I get the exact same problem, this suggests to me that Firefox is using its own list of CA's.

Could you please verify the above (any proof would be great!)

Many Thanks,

Mitch.

Using latest Firefox beta on an Asus TF300 tablet with latest o/s update; have all but 3rd party cookies enabled. My user name isn't remembered but when I try to type in my password, Firefox tries to auto-complete the password with extra wrong characters and imo for security reasons it shouldn't be showing any completion suggestions at all.

How can I set about home to not show my last visted sites? If I lend my phone to someone, I do not want them to be able to view my browser history (banking etc - screenshot of about:home shows a viewable customer number from online bank). Also, how can I remove the ads for addons on about:home?
