Hello I am German and not used to write in english. I use Firefox on my Xperia device. Within the last Update I got the new function to collect the tabs. I created several collections and named them. After I put in the tabs and deleted them in the list. So they were only in the collections. Today I wanted to use one Tab out of the collection. But the whole collection Was not any more there, same with 2 Others! Where are these collections and the tabs now? I did not delete them and I need them.

Where are they and how can I use them again?

Kind regards

Mischa

Dearest creators, Firefox for Android have a bothering issue. In any Android phone while listening directly from SoundCloud site not from app, while only in background the sound of the music is clipped and sometimes interrupted. I only use Firefox and also as a music player and it's perfect, but lately I have found that SoundCloud have problems with audio rendering while (in my case only) Firefox is in background. Also for this site cannot be applied any sound equalizer compared to any other YT or online radio. Please fix this issue... You're the best!

When trying to download anything the download apparently begins, since a notification appears on the notification panel, but it just does not properly start. It keeps trying but no progress is shown. After a while a failure message replaces the progress notification.

This isn't a network problem, since I've tried it with different connections. There used to be no problem before.

Anybody else experiencing a similar issue?

Downloading large file over WiFi (via 'Dowload link') shows no progress (% completed) and often fails in Firefox for Android leaving no traces in the Firefox Downloads list

Hi! Have been using Firefox for Android for years. Cannot solve the following issue: trying to download a large file over (slow?) WiFi displays no signs of a download in progress (except for WiFi activity indicator in the top panel) and nothing happens (no files in the download folder, no records in the Firefox downloads list). If I retry it sometimes works. If I start another browser (Samsung Internet) the download works fine. The device is Samsung Note 8 with the latest updates installed (Android 9). The problem does not reproduce over mobile data connection (4G internet mostly, faster than the WiFi connection I use). Firefox is 92.1.1 but I have seen the issue with all previous versions in the last couple of years.

Sample scenario to reproduce: 1. open https://echo.msk.ru/programs/observation/2909078-echo/ 2. tap and hold the download tab above the video 3. a popup windows appears with the https://cdn.echo.msk.ru/snd/2021-09-25-observation-1210-3532210.mp3 title, select "Download link" (is there any other way in Firefox to download the link?) 4. the popup window disappears and nothing seems to be going on... If I go to "3 dots" menu > Downloads the file is not listed there. 5. Sometimes the download does succeed. In this case I see a notification from the Download manager in the top panel which reads 2021-09-25-observation-1210-3532210(3).mp3 was downloaded where the '(3)' suggests the previous 2 attempts to download the file did try to create the file on the device! The file is about 63 MB.

Thanks, Dmitry

Hey, so, there is an issue I've been facing. There's a site I've visited a few times on mobile and stopped using a bit ago, but the thing is no matter what I do, it keeps popping up as an autocomplete when I'm typing in the search bar. This only happens on the mobile version of Firefox, it doesn't pop up on the desktop version even though they are synced together, and no matter what I Google, it keeps showing me the instructions to delete autofill entries on the desktop browser. Literally nothing comes up for the android version, or any mobile version at all. Please help, this is exceptionally frustrating.

Firefox for Android 7.0, Firefox 94.1.2 and Logins and Password

"Autofill in other Apps" selection never appears in the menu for the above set up but does appear in an Android 8.1 version with the same Firefox version of 94.1.2.

The 7.0 Android version never offers a valid saved login for external apps.

The 8.1 Android version will pop up a text box below the User ID entry that says "Unlock Firefox" but selecting the text box does nothing. The same text box also appears below the password box after manually entering the User ID and selecting CONTINUE to get to the Password entry box (but only in 8.1) If you Long Press the User ID or Password box in 8.1 it offers a Paste selection but it's not a UID or Password, just the last Cut item.

In Android 10.0 Long Press on the UID or Password box will bring up an "Autofill" box but it does nothing and does not offer a UID or Password anywhere for external apps.

Something is clearly broken in External App password from Firefox for Android. All the available settings are as they should be set. The Password fill works as it should from the Web Page of the same App entity, say Amazon for example.

So.....whose problem is this?

There has been a sudden failure to resolve the graphics of websites I attempt to access in Firefox. I am using a Galaxy tab S2 with android 5.0.2.

Any attempt to view a website which uses graphics produces a few blocks of colour and maybe some black dots where the text is meant to be. This is a sudden change in performance. I don't get the same problem on other android devices or with windows 10.

Repeated uninstall / reinstall cycles have not improved matters. Firefox nightly produces the same result. It is possible that there is some incompatibility with a recent Guardian (newspaper) beta installation but that has been replaced with the stable public version without any improvement in Firefox performance. There are no associated crash reports.

Can anyone offer any assistance in diagnosing what is going on and correcting the problem please

On the previous Firefox browser I had on my Android phone, I set it to close all my tabs when I closed the browser. I've just updated to the new Firefox on Android and I can't find the option to do this. I have to manually close all the tabs every time I close the browser. Surely they haven't given us less options and features in the new version?!

Pressing quit in the app closes the tabs but it doesn't also close the app down on my phone.
