Up until the last few days I had bookmarks, shortcuts etc saved on my phone and Firefox browser. Today I went to click on a shortcut that I regularly use, only to find it had been completely deleted from my phone! How did Firefox get access to my phone to remove these and to completely clear my history, bookmarks, shortcuts etc??? I never gave permission to access or to delete anything from my phone or browser!

I want Firefox as my only browser, and have disabled google. I have Firefox as my default browser, but yet still have google as the browser that I'm forced to use. I seem to have to go through the whole process to have one search that isn't taken over by Google. Any advise? Thanks.

It is impossible to trigger a doubleclick or from some tests, extremelly difficult to do. I calculated that in order to trigger a doubleclick, the 2 clicks needs to be somewhat no more than 0.08 seconds aparts. :That's wrog and inaccessible, the value should be between 0.4 and 0.8, NOT 0.08.

Firefox mobile should support doubleclick: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Element/dblclick_event

CustomTabs don't redirect to app

I'm developing an android app that uses the OAuth2.0 auth code flow to authenticate users. The app launches a CustomTab which in turn, responds with a redirect to the app's redirect scheme. Chrome redirects immediately, closing the CustomTab. Firefox does nothing regardless of the state of the "Open in app" setting.

In order to reproduce this: 1. Create an android app with a redirect scheme 2. Create a webserver that simply redirects to that scheme 3. From the app, open a CustomTab to the webserver 4. Observe the CustomTab not redirect

For a more concrete example, I can reliably reproduce using the sample app from https://github.com/kalinjul/kotlin-multiplatform-oidc and an [Authentik](https://goauthentik.io/) server but I'm sure something like Auth0 would have the same problem.

Hi, when I try to upload a file such as my resume to a job board it won't open my file location on my device. When I click on the websites upload button it doesn't do anything. I have tried on many websites with the same outcome. When I go to the same websites using Chrome it works.

Hey guys apparently I have opened a web site that instantly installed adware on my Samsung Galaxy S21 ultra 5G phone. I have installed AVG virus protection. I also have installed adblock app, and a Malware block app. Nothing works. I've tried the web fixes for Chrome. And Samsung Internet. Still nothing works. Anyone know how to fix this without resetting the phone back to factory.

I am migrating to a new phone. WhatsApp offered firefox as an option for storing its passkey. That took me to the connection and synchronisation process which the new phone said had failed. However all my tabs and other passwords appear to be syncing. Now selecting firefox to store the WhatsApp passkey takes me back to the failure page every time. Any idea how to restart the passkey addition to firefox process? WhatsApp won't work whilst I'm hung up in limbo between the two apps.

Hi, I'm having issues with my Google search results page. It used to be very clean looking and mainly only showing the results of whatever I searched. Today though, I searched something and now the Google results are first showing Reddit answers, what others have asked, discussions and forums, what others have searched, short videos, etc. I have to scroll really far down just to get some normal search results. How can I fix this? Call me old school but I want the classic version back. Please help, I don't want to switch browsers. I've been using Firefox nearly since it's launch, since StumbleUpon days. Yeah!!! If you know, you know. Thanks!
