Subsequent name changes for home screen shortcuts on Android

While adding a website shortcut to my home screen on Android, I changed the name (to be shown on the home screen). I later decided to use a slightly different name, so I removed the shortcut and added it again, entering the new name. Nevertheless, the shortcut is now always added with the original custom name. This is also the case when I leave the name unchanged in a later attempt. I get the same results with multiple sites. I get the same results after closing Firefox, restarting my phone and emptying the Firefox cache. Even thought the shortcut on the home screen is probably not actually a bookmark, I tried bookmarking the site, and changing the name of the existing bookmark - with the same results. Is there a way I can choose a different name for the home screen shortcut, or this a bug? Background: I am now manually adding shortcuts to my home screen after getting a new phone (Pixel 7a). I had have mostly the same shortcuts on my previous phone (Pixel 3a XL). The shortcuts were kind-of(!) transferred to my new phone: they appear in the same home screen folders as on my old phone, but gray. When I try to open them, I get the message: "Couldn't restore shortcut because app doesn't backup and restore". Is there a way to transfer (all) home screen shortcuts? If not, please consider adding support for backup or automatic migration.

Problem: keyboard covers text area in chat and scroll does not function. In a chat with customer service usually, the text I am writing does not appear, it is behind the keyboard and scroll is frozen. I have to close the keyboard to see the text, also scroll works. Then I click on my partially filled text box, keyboard comes back covering it, no scroll. Repeat. Pixel 6, FF for Android, T-mo, Ad-Guard only addon, everything updated, see attached.

I am writing to request assistance with an issue I am encountering on the latest version of the Firefox browser for Android. My goal is to open specified pages in the same tab using Intent from a third-party custom application. However, I have observed that different URLs open in separate tabs, contrary to my expectations.  Current Implementation:  Here is the code snippet I am currently using: java: Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW); intent.setData(uri); intent.putExtra(Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID, packageName); startActivity(intent); Expected Behavior:  I expect different URLs to open in the same tab without opening new tabs. This functionality is crucial for my application.  Issue Background:  I have researched similar issues and found that users have had comparable needs using Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID. Unfortunately, it appears that Firefox has not fully addressed this functionality. The EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID is a feature that modern browsers should ideally support to enhance user experience and maintain continuity within a single tab.  References:  I have referred to the following discussions and issues for additional context:  Mozilla Support Forum: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1364869 GitHub Issue: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/23329 Request:  I kindly request that the Firefox team consider adapting this functionality officially or provide an alternative solution if it has already been addressed. Any relevant documentation or guidance on achieving this behavior would be highly appreciated.  Thank you for your time and assistance.

I'm on version 112.2.0 and I cannot disable the "feature" that haphazardly shoves my history in to groups that have nothing to do with each other but Firefox THINKS are related. The support post I've found discussing this promised there'd be a "disable search groups" option in version 97, but I'm on version 112.2.0, which (for those of you counting) is 5 mainline iterations afterwards. How do I fix this? It's constantly breaking my History.

I use Firefox across all my devises, Desktop, Tablet & phone. I added Dashlane password manager as an addon to my desktop, years ago, at Firefox/Mozilla recommendation and love it. Recently I upgraded my Dashlane account to be able to sync across all my devises only to find I cannot ad Dashlane as an addon on Android devices. I read there is an upgrade in the works for Addons for Firefox on Android... 1. Will this allow me to add Dashlane? 2. If so when and how? 3. If not why, when it was recommended by you in the first place? As a long term user of Firefox/Mozilla I have often recommended using it, to many of my friends, but if the Addons are limited on Android it no longer seems to be a good recommendation. Even though I can still use Dashlane with a work around on Android I love the convenience of having the password manager as Addon on the Browser. If you have no plans to add Dashlane soon I will have to think about switching to a browser that does. 4. What are your plans going forward? Robert Beale

It seems that printing in Firefox for Android is not possible. I don't understand this as I need to print constantly. I've always preferred Firefox to Chrome, but I'm going to have to quit Firefox and use Chrome or brave. Because they will let you print. If they can let you print so easily, why can't firefox? I also can't find a way to make a PDF. Print PDF is in the print menu which is not available, it seems. I also have printed PDFs in Firefox for Android, but I can't make a PDF in order to print one. This is just nuts, and is infuriating and a big time waster. Goodbye, Firefox.
