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!

I want to open multiple pages at the same time in Android 12, but Firefox for Android does not seem to support multi-instance (like in the attached image). I also tried beta and nightly but none of them worked either. As other browser apps (Chrome, Edge, Samsung, etc.) support it, I switched my default browser app to Samsung internet on Android (temporarily).
I don't want to use multiple apps (Stable, beta and nightly) just for opening multiple pages in a single screen. Is there any plan to support multi-instance in the future version of Firefox?

It seems like such a simple thing to ask. I want to be able to manually create a couple shortcuts to load my favorite web pages. The whole point of a shortcut is to avoid clutter, and streamline the process of using your favorite websites, right?
I manually add three shortcuts to my "firefox home screen". Google, Google news, and another page that is hosted on my local network. That's it. I don't want recommended sites, affiliate links, suggestions, or sites from my history clogging up my very short list of favorite website shortcuts. For this reason I configured the home screen to ONLY show "Shortcuts". Sponsored shortcuts, jump back in, recent bookmarks, recently visited, and pocket are all turned OFF. Still, I sometimes get new shortcuts to other sites I have visited added to my home screen (without the pin icon) randomly. Some sites that I visit sometimes appear there....but not always. Just randomly. If I wanted to have my history appear in shortcuts I supposed I would check the option to show recently visited sites...but I don't. Why would I want shortcuts added for random sites I have visited when I could just look at my history? If every site I visit has the potential to be added to my shortcuts randomly, how does that make using shortcuts a convenience? It doesn't seem to matter what I want because Firefox just does it anyway....sometimes....
The only way to remove these random automatic shortcuts is to remove them from my history individually or clear my entire history. This means I'm constantly fighting to keep these randomly created shortcuts at bay. I don't want to necessarily remove sites from my history, I just don't want them to randomly auto appear on my manually curated list of shortcuts.
I attempted to work around this issue by using the "Add to my Home Screen" option. I could just have shortcuts on my android home screen instead of the Firefox browser home screen. Then I can turn off the shortcuts option under "customize my home screen" entirely. Unfortunately this works fine for some sites, but for others that option is replaced with "Install" instead. I assume this is meant to install the app associated with that domain. I don't want to install the Google News app or I would do so in the app store, not with my non-google web browser. That's a moot point though because tapping on "install" doesn't install anything anyway, but rather it does the same exact thing that "Add to my Home Screen" does. It adds a shortcut to my home screen. Great! Except the problem now is that when I use that home screen shortcut, all of the Firefox UI breaks (Incidentally this also happens to the Brave Browser as well). I have no address bar, no menus, no tabs. It's as if I'm looking at the Google News app instead of a page in Firefox. I do not have the Google News app installed, so I know that is not the case.
I have posted comments about this in the google play store firefox page, and even emailed developers. The only response I got was a confusing explanation that this feature was added to mirror the functionality of the desktop browser. Either I didn't explain my problem well enough or they didn't read my explanation. This is why I posting yet again in another place, and I'm trying to be very detailed in my explanation so there is no misunderstanding my issue.
I am a huge advocate for Firefox. I recommend it to everyone and I have been using it personally for decades. Before there was even a Chrome! So imagine how painful it is for me to be trying out Brave or even Samsung's "Internet" to see if they are viable alternatives to Firefox. It doesn't seem like I'm asking for something unreasonable... I just want a few icons on my screen that I can tap on to open my favorite web pages. I don't care if it's on the android home screen or the Firefox home screen, although I should be able to choose either or both. Unfortunately neither method seems to work without bugging out.
Again, I'm a big FF advocate. I would love to see you back on top instead of having a 1% market share....but I can hardly sympathize with your plight when what should be basic functionality is not working correctly.
Please make it so that random sites that I visit aren't added to shortcuts, at least unless I have enabled "recent" options. Please make it so that I can add ANY website to my android home screen, without seeing the confusing alternative choice, "Install". Please make it so that websites cannot interfere with the Firefox UI. If I am indeed using Firefox to view a page, then I should at all times have the UI available. I should always have access to the basic functionality of a browser, such as stop, reload, bookmarks, history, help, about, etc.

please i am Begging you let me put the forward/backward buttons on the search bar why do i have to open a separate menu to do this
ability to Choose what gestures do (for example, swiping on the search bar in either direction to navigate history rather than tabs) would also be acceptable, if slightly less convenient (as i suspect something like that would only allow moving forward/back one page at a time, as opposed to simply press-and-holding to pull up all your options to jump to)
i am losing my mind a little bit here i don't understand why it has to be so roundabout

I am trying to set the home page on my Samsung S21 with android v13 and firefox v117. I cannot find any means for setting the home page. The customize homepage in the top (3 button) menu has no option for setting a different home page.
The homepage option under settings gives you exactly the same options as above.
The customize option under settings applies only to the theme and has no options for managing the home page.
Unfortunately every version of firefox is different and all the instructions I have found apply to different versions of firefox than the one I am using.

Hello, I was told in a review post on google play to post here. I really wish to use firefox as my browser on my phone, but I can't get casting to work. I have a chromecast connected to my TV, but when using firefox on my phone it won't work. The icon isn't even showing. Is it available through an addon or by some other means since Mozilla responded that I should ask here?
Thank you in advance.

I read the strings of comments regarding about:config not working and presenting a blank page. I have the same issue.
I have been a Firefox user for decades, preferring Firefox over all other browsers. However, without the ability to customize Firefox we, the loyal, may be forced to use another browser. Also, no customization is only contribution to other browser's owners/developers efforts to eliminate Firefox.
Is there a solution to fixing current version or Firefox, about:config in development or already available?

As the title suggests, I'm having an issue with the navigation bar. It remains at the bottom of the screen even when I have the least need for it, which makes the content of the screen glitchy. It may not sound like much, but it's very annoying and ruins the whole browsing experience, especially when watching videos. Because of the unwanted navigation bar, even a slight touch on the screen causes the videos or pages, but mostly videos, to move around left and right when in landscape mode. As you can see in one of the screenshots I sent, the video is not even visible, it's just a black screen, which is a different issue that I faced for the first time but I am not sure how often I'll get that in future but it's there.
If anyone can suggest a fix for this issue,(the one with the navigation bar and jumpy video screen) such as a setting that I can turn on or off to get rid of the navigation bar, it would be greatly appreciated.
