Hi, how can I open a local html file with firefox 86 on android 9? It's like firefox no longer registers itself as a valid program/association to open html files.

What I've tried so far: 1) If I type file:/// in the URL bar, nothing happens. It works on Opera. 2) If I go to a file manager, select an html file, and click "Open with", firefox doesn't show up; Chrome and Opera do. 3) If I go to the android settings > applications > firefox > associations, firefox shows no associated file types at all.

The HTML language isn't only used on the Internet, it's also used for local documents, please allow us to use firefox to view our local html files.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 SM-T530 with Android 5.0.2. I recently downloaded both Firefox and Firefox Focus but I haven´t been able to use neither of them: at first they just crashed, but now the tablet restarts a few seconds after opening and trying to browse anything. Every other app seems to work just fine.

I reinstalled it a few times. I've been able to view "about:crashes" and there were no crashes. What else can I do?

I don't want to use Chrome :( Please help!

My SAMSUNG Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the newest Firefox Mobile is currently on problem with pixiv website.

I tried to download (using long press on an image) this artwork : https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/95614546 (NSFW maybe, bunny girl in there)

but Firefox Mobile failed its download process so I retried, and it again.

also I have confirmed this problem is occurred with any and only pixiv website images. :(

Sogning into an account on Firefox for Android is no longer possible

When I try to sign into my account on mobile (the app itself, not the site since clearly on the website I'm signed in) I get to a white screen that shows a bunch of details of my account status. I am not allowed to progress past this screen. Any way I leave that screen, closing the app, using back, praying the 'x' in they lower left corner, reverts my login. So sync is not allowed on FF mobile anymore? I wish they wouldn't still list it as an option in the app if it's depreciated and no longer supported. If this is a bug, well you got me since FF also doesn't allow bug reporting.

Android Firefox don't use autoconfigured proxy (WPAD)

Hi all, I've set up proxy auto configuration with wpad. And it's working, but not in every case: On my android (version 10) phone I can enter in the advanced options the "Proxy Auto-Config" with a PAC URL. This works, but only for Chrome. When I use Firefox, the proxy is not used. Any Idea why this is the case and how this could be resolved?

I also downloaded the nightly build. With about:config I can set the network.proxy.autoconfig_url. There I added the PAC URL. But the browser still don't use the proxy. Any idea how to make this working?

Cheers

Why, when I click on a URL while using Firefox on my Android phone, is it always invoked in the address field via google.com? I get that Android is Google, but does anyone know a way to disable this totally unnecessary, and privacy-destroying, functionality?

Firefox Default Seach Engine

I would like to change the default Firefox "Android" search engine to a custom URL settings for DuckDuckGo.

I have dark mode set for my phone(S21) Firefox won't let me block websites access to this user string. I believe this is a huge privacy concern and would like an option to spoof this, as to not break websites. Currently that is not an option, and without access to about:config I can't make a work around.

So this gets me back to DuckDuckGo, and because I clear my cookies often, and the Android version does not have Compartments, I need a work around. Like a lot of websites DuckDuckGo reads my theme and changes it to Dark mode. There is a custom setting, and I have a custom URL but Firefox won't let me change it to this custom URL

https://start.duckduckgo.com/?kae=-1&kak=-1&kal=-1&kao=-1&kaq=-1

Please help, as I love Firefox, but God dam does it make me angry with all the bugs, and Mozilla's current philosophy of streamlining the Android version.

P.s. Google (I assume) has once again changed the user agent for Firefox Android, and I have had enough, and wanted to change back to Duck, but Dark Mode really irritates me on most websites. I really don't get why everything has to be so frigging hard, if you don't accept the status quo.
