Cannot take screenshot of problem (pop up ms from Amazon via Firefox) . . as soon as I pick up the phone or attempt any action whatsoever, the message box disappears. And since I have a fingerprint access option on, the moment my finger touches the screen for full access there is no record of the message for screen capture. Also, if I do nothing, the screen goes black (normal, with time/date etc visible) within a few seconds after the message appears . . though it is waiting for me to touch the screen at which time it reappears again for a few seconds. So it is pick up the phone . . trigger motion detection . . message box appears . . wait a couple of seconds . . black screen . . touch or pick up the phone . . message box . . black screen etc. I can of course do the fingerprint scan and have full phone features, but the preliminary nag "box message" all the time bugs the hell out of me. In the text of my "complaint" I quoted what the message says, it is not from Firefox but does have a tiny Firefox logo upper left. The small rectangular window also has a left/right "full return" arrow (grayed out each one) with a black "pause" button in between the two arrows, and it is not grayed out. However nothing happens if I touch it. In very small print under the main text (first few words of my Amazon review) is a link to the Amazon page where I posted a review of a product. The message itself that I refer to is NOT from Firefox, but is comprised of the first few words of my review headline (not all of it but most) on the Amazon product comment review page. So even though the "content" of the unwanted message is from Amazon, the Firefox logo nevertheless appears (very tiny) in the upper left of the rectangular window, so it appears to be a composite error interaction between Firefox and Amazon. How to tell Firefox to stop posting it? Or how to tell Amazon that their software is somehow involved? I haven't a clue . . ! This is a re-written complaint . . the original one resulted in an email request from "Seburo" who asked for a screenshot, but did not provide a return email address that functioned. So I am posting here a second time, thanks.

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!

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.

In Huawei and that firefox newer version, if you open many tabs, like 8, you cannot slide between them, uponopening Firefox again, let's say tomorrow. It does not allow to slide with finger and switch from let's say first tab to eight. You see info in right bottom corner that there are 8 tabs, but you can not get those to open. You can not switch from visible tabs to those it visible at the moment.

Unwanted update to beta version on Android?

Suddenly Firefox updated on my Android phone and now none of my addons work, including my password manager and cookie manager. When I open the support link it opens to Firefox for Android beta Solutions. Addons are one of my main reason for using Firefox. Every article I've seen says there is no way to downgrade. If that's true I'll be switching to another browser that supports Chrome extensions, whether this version (79.0.4 (Build #2015757667)) is actually beta or not. Forced, irreversible updates with no warning that break critical functions. This is why I don't like the whole app store system, and again if true, this is totally inexcusable. I know this free software is a labor of love on the part of the developers, but I don't think I can deal with this update. A bunch of patronizing articles explaning why "we know what's best" is no better than Google or Microsoft. Anyway this was a major inconvenience coming without even a warning.

How do l get rid of pocket from Firefox, samsung s20+ (just purchased, Firefox was ported from samsung s8).

I tried config.sys but there was no line for 'browser:pocket.'

If l can't get rid of pocket from Firefox l will get rid of firefox itself, after more than 20 years.

Thanks for the help.
