Hello!

Look, i just cannot find a way to install my own small addon for firefox android that i made on my own device. I dont need it to be publicly available. I dont need noone to install it. I just want to install it on my own phone, and that's it, nothing more! That's just a small, few-lines-of-code addon which blocks annoying ads on a certain site me and my wife are using. All i want to install it on our phones. I dont care if it will be firefox nightly release for devs, or anything. If there's any way to install it, like using web-ext, adb, or maybe anything other than that - please let me know. I just spent 50x time more trying to install it on my own phone than actually writing it. Please, i really hope you can help. Thank you in advance!

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

I've been trying to install .xpi files for Firefox on Android 12 with little success. Every file manager I've tried doesn't give me the option to open .xpi files with Firefox and my device isn't rooted so I can't access the full file system.

Are there any articles/suggestions? I've always wanted extensions on mobile but never been able to install.

Hello everyone, there is a feature that Samsung internet uses (and for the most part almost every app on iOS) called "back to top". With the introduction of add-ons I was hoping you could allow us to download an add-on that has similar functionality or Firefox could introduce this feature natively.

I find this feature quite important since you could be knee deep into an article, novel or webtoon and have the need to back to the top of the page (which can be as easy as pressing the home key on PC).

Hopefully there is a solution to this, I didn't think I'd miss it swapping from a browser that has it but I really do.

Add on incompatibility is killing me

I have used Firefox on Android for years and at some point, it updated and all of a sudden none of my addons were compatible.

A couple of those were incredibly useful. For instance, I do not use the Facebook app, I only access it through the web. Until the change, I had a brilliant Facebook ad blocker that worked wonders. Now, that blocker will not work.

There is no alternative available (except to revert to using Chrome who did not ruin compatibility).

What have others done?

Installing the app is not an option. Hard stop.

Is it possible for me to revert to the last prior version that actually worked with addons?

Why is there still no default desktop view available?

I want to see all web pages in desktop view, without having to change the setting for each page I go to. This is an option in other popular browsers. Why not this one?

And please don't tell me why mobile view is better or why I don't really need the feature I'm asking for. I know what I want. And I know exactly why I want it. And I know I'm not the only one who wants it. in July 2021 someone asked for the same thing and Paul replied, "This is something that we are currently working on and hope to include in a future update very soon (it is currently in our Nightly version while it is being tested)." A year and a half later, it's still not available, including (as far as I can see) in the Nightly version. Yet in both instances of this feature being requested, the topic is marked "Solved" and archived. I guess the "solution" is to ignore what users want and force us to use the product in the way you think we should. Very Apple/Google of you!

Between this, no ability to export bookmarks from mobile, and very limited extension support, I'm finding myself ready to give a very bad rating in the play store and switch to another browser.

Where can I find the extension for Grammarly. I hate it; can't go to extensions just add-ons. Please don't offer it as part of Firefox. It doesn't like you to use a semicolon; wants you to use a full sentence instead of Correctly using a semicolon. Stupid addition!
