Hello,

I use Firefox on Android. My phone/tablet is configured in English, but I would like Firefox's voice search feature to recognize my voice in French. I know that Firefox uses Google Speech to recognize my voice, but here is my problem : on every Google app/feature on my Android devices, Google Speech is configured in French and it works flawlessly (even though I have a Phone configured in English).

But I find no way to tell Firefox's voice recognition feature that I speak French...even when I set Firefox's language in French, nothing changes.

It there anything I'm missing ?


Thanks !

Firefox sideloaded to Nvidia Shield - Controller doesn't work! (It works fine on Vivaldi)

Hello All, For some unknown reason, the browsers available on Play Store for Nvidia Shield are crap - so far I've not found any that allow me to easily sync bookmarks etc between Shield/PC/Mobile.

I therefore tested and found Opera and Vivaldi sideloaded to my Nvidia Shield TV Pro both worked perfectly.

I wanted to use test Firefox as I was about to use this as my main preferred PC/mobile browser, but first I wanted to check it all worked OK.

I was able to sideload and set up Firefox, but as soon as I open a webpage the Controller stopped working.

How can this be fixed please?

Please don't suggest a browser that's intended for AndroidTV on the Shield Play Store - they are all crap due to the reasons I mentioned, the controller with Right Joysick acting as mouse pounter works perfectly on Opera and Vivaldi, so I don't understand why this it doesn't work on Firefox.

I hope this can be fixed/resolved as I would like to use Firefox as an alternative.

Thanks and regards!

I'm having trouble getting firefox to use the rear camera on my phone when scanning qr codes for a web page. The old solution appears to have been to reset Firefox's camera permissions and from there you could change which camera the app would use. However, this feature appears to have been removed as Firefox will now default to my selfie camera, which is very inconvenient. Is there an option I'm not able to see in the app or a work around for this issue? Thanks in advance for the help!

I have the same issue that users "graccy99" and "Matt" previously described in 2022: any time I navigate to a new page using the address/search bar, the entire page shows up in very faded colors. It goes back to normal if I click in the address bar, then go to all my open tabs, and back into the tab I was just in. However, doing this every time I make a search or navigate to a new website is untenable.

I'm using a Galaxy Tab S7 FE in dark mode. The other users who brought this up were also using Galaxy tablets. Would appreciate any advice, since I don't see any solutions posted from previous times users have brought up this same issue. Thanks.

this is relevant to privacy & security, as well as websites

browser fingerprinting is a serious threat to privacy & security.

fenix 123.0 & 1240a1 eventually achieved "non-unique browser fingerprint" in std pbmode as tested via covefyourtracks.eff.org

however, since 124.0 & 125.0a1, browser fingerprinting protection has slid all the way down to "partial." orbot-hostile Brave Andro always achieves a fully "random browser fingerprint." all i want/expect from fenix is a robust & reliable "non-unique browser fingerprint."

my fenix UI P&S is always set to Strict & GPC enabled. i haven't changed anything. no 3rd party cookies. caches cleared, etc, & always uses expert mode orbot proxy.

why this very unwelcomed fenix backslide?

I have used Firefox since late 2004, and nothing else. No problems until now.


Android 14 and Firefox mobile I think version 123.


It is updated. When I'm on a website, like USPS and accessesed Informed Delivery, I tell Firefox to Add To Home screen so I can quickly access mail and packages coming today.


Has always worked fine. Now, none of my manufacturered/created Firefox shortcuts will do anything. I cleared the Firefox cache, and forced stopped. I don't know if cleaning the data or reinstalling the whole app will help.


I then deleted data and uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but nothing changed.


I tried earlier versions but got a notification off it wasn't compatible with my version on Android.


I'm recovering from a stroke and these lost shortcuts stored on my homescreen were vital to communicating with my doctors, therapists, outpatient rehab, hospitals, etc. I'm lost without them.


Any suggestions or reasons for this are appreciated. Thank you
