I remember sites with related terms not always being grouped up not too long ago. The change isn't bad but would like to know how to disable it. The main issue being ever since this change was implemented, it breaks some functionality. It keeps you from being able to look through the rest of your history until you delete the group. Either it prevents you from continuing to scroll down. Or when you do keep scrolling, it keeps looping the sites already shown.

When I type a search topic into the search bar on the Fx home page (Android Firefox) ".com" is automatically added to the end of the search topic. For example, if I type "cars" into the search bar it shows "cars.com" in the search bar. I tried changing the search engine in Fx settings but it does the same thing regardless of which search engine I'm using.

Hi, whenever I switch from home Wi-Fi to my mobile carrier data or when our Wi-Fi temporarily goes out immediately and almost immediately the Firefox web browser stops working like I cannot search anything online that it will say like can't connect and the web browser logs me out of my Firefox browser account and it won't accept my password(I type in the correct password), so I have to restart my phone and the browser works again and I'm logged back in without having to put in my password. It's on smartphone Razer phone 2(android 9.0) Firefox daylight version: 96.3.1 (Build #2015860755), 5e0953d24+ AC: 96.0.15, 0178a6fde9 GV: 96.0.3-20220126154723 AS: 86.2.2

But this has been happening on every firefox version for the past several months maybe longer and Google always updates Firefox so no issues there, again at least every Firefox version for the past several months maybe longer this has been happening, and it never happened before until back then. And I don't have any add-ons or plugins and I use the duck duck go search engine.

Before the recent Android update, I was able to open external links and was able to choose what app I open link with now when I want to use an external app, Firefox automatically chooses my default browser to open said link. Very frustrating is there a way to fix this?

When I open my bookmarks on Android or iOS it always defaults back to the top level of my bookmarks. I often read pages that are located under the same bookmark folder. It would be nice if Firefox would remember the bookmark folder I used last.

How to prevent Firefox from leaking device theme.

I cannot be the only one that likes Dark Mode on the O/S and on the Firefox browser, but not have websites "assume" I want it on their websites..

Dark Mode when executed and implemented well is a fantastic option to have. However, I dont need algorithms doing the thinking for me. I only want websites to read the smallest amount of information about my web browser and operating systems as they need to function. The IOT has far to much information about me then I would like. Websites "assuming" I want to view their website in Dark mode, because I have my O/S or Web browser in Dark mode is a disgrace. To all the extra smart people out there, I realise this is a continence for some people, if not most. I am a Firefox user. I am not "most" people. We're is the option to block this behaviour?

Thank you.

When I go to about:config I cannot find app.update.url. The closest is app.update.url.details and app.update.url.manual

Has it changed to a different pref? How do I view what the update URL is set to?
