The Chinese font in Firefox Android always looks very strange, and makes readers very uncomfortable. Please see the screenshot below, especially the characters I highlighted -- I think all Chinese readers understand what I'm saying, and the characters 关 and 复 even has only 1/2 width of normal. Really weird. Some characters looks somewhat like Japanese font. From about:config, I find the font's name is ROBOTO, which is a western character font designed by a Google staff, and doesn't cover Chinese character. So I have no idea where the font shown comes from.

Firefox android seems to be the only browser that has such problem. In old versions, we can change the font with the Stylish addon, but there's no such addon in recent new version. As a Chinese user, I almost can't tolerate this problem anymore. In my opinion, the solution is very simple: just use the system font of Android, which is enough.

Hope the developers take this problem into account.

安卓手机Firefox火狐浏览器修改要求桌面版网站useragent UA的办法 Firefox for Android request desktop useragent 浏览器默认UA是 Mozilla/5.0 (Android 10; Mobile; rv:68.0) Gecko/68.0 Firefox/68.0


要求桌面版网站UA是 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0


地址了输入 about:config 新建一个名为 general.useragent.override 字符串值为如下,即可修改为Windows视窗桌面版UA User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:80.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/80.0


不过该方法是修改了默认的UA,而不是修改要求桌面版网站UA,网络上找遍了方法,都没找到如何修改要求桌面版网站UA

希望能给与如何修改的办法

I like to read online comics on my phone sometimes. A lot of the time, the websites I use will have an annoying header that I have to scroll past, or the images will be a bit smaller than I'd like to be comfortably readable. Is there any way I can make it so that upon loading the next page, the scroll position and zoom level was kept consistent, so that I don't have to rescroll and rezoom every time I view the next page?

Thanks!

Click on the search bar of the Firefox browser, and enter a string of numbers with “.” in it, or a mixed input with English symbols [.], such as Firefox 80.13, and the search page will not open open.

Logically speaking, here should be the result of opening a search, not a web page.

I hope someone can see and give feedback to the engineer to fix it.

Currently running version 80.1.3. on Android. I Sync with my Desktop Firefox. This has always worked well in the past. Ever since the last 2 upgrades something strange is happening when I try to save a new bookmark to a Mobile bookmark subfolder. After finding a new site to bookmark I will tap the Star icon. The bookmark is saved to the root of the Mobile bookmark folder. I have subfolders in the Mobile bookmark folder and want to then move the just saved bookmark to one of those Mobile subfolders. Starting to edit the bookmark I see no way to select a Mobile bookmark subfolder. I can click Mobile folder and it will take me to the Desktop folder but not to any Mobile subfolders. I don't remember the Mobile version doing it before the last 2 upgrades but maybe my recollection on that is fuzzy. Is there some way I don't know about to expand the Mobile bookmark folder to display subfolders when moving a just saved bookmark?
