I've been deleting my saved passwords in Firefox, after migrating to a standalone password manager. It's been anything but easy (deletions are not synced, and bulk deletion process is inconvenient to say the least).

What worries me is that my "deleted" passwords kept coming back as soon as I enabled Sync, until I realised I had duplicate devices in my Mozilla account control panel. I still have, though, some other connected services (Add-ons, Mozilla Support, Mozilla Monitor...).

Is what I've done enough to ensure they're gone? Where exactly are synced passwords stored, and how can I be sure that they aren't lying around in a Mozilla server, awaiting a future data breach? I don't have the time and energy to change 200+ passwords.

According to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-set-firefox-sync-firefox-android, there should be a Sync and Save Date option in Firefox Android Menu, but it's nowehere to be found.

I am using the current version of fire fox and am using the same smail on both devices.

I tried using using the QR scanner from the dialogue box in the firefox keyboard, however that only brings up a "Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within the Firefox app." display.

The option is still missing from the menu.

DEVS NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR IGNORANCE AND LACK OF CARING. On mobile app. Videos are choppy even after refreshing, clearing cache and data serve no fix.

Swiping up on video doesn't enter full screen mode.

These are known issues for over 4 years. Questions

1.) Why haven't devs fixes these issue. 2.) Why do devs rely on non-employees to mitigate issues. Instead of fixing issues themselves directly. 3.) No other browsing site has these issues, only FIREFOX. The issues are clearly from poor app design and bad coding, so why do devs not fix it eventhough 1000s of people have these issues? 4.) Despite all the negative reviews, devs turn a blind eye and don't fix any issues.

Home screen might be considered a specialized bookmark I suppose but the categories don't directly apply above. Browsers for decades have allowed a custom Url to be entered or "use current page" as home screen. I can find no option under firefox settings for Android enter it. What's the trick?

I picked last tab but that isn't the same as a fixed URL such as my bank website or Facebook page I would always want to see first.

I setup sync, the device paired. It said it was syncing and when finished the bookmarks folder looked totally different on my kindle fire. I can not find any of the recently added bookmarks on the kindle. The History and Open Tabs are still the same, I didn't have those selected for sync. I checked and one password that I knew was previously incorrect on the kindle got updated to the correct one from the desktop. But I am worried about any possible passwords that were only on the kindle or were correct on the kindle and incorrect on the desktop, based on the bookmarks I suspect those were lost also. I was worried about this and had tried to find the profile data on the kindle but no file manager helped, I couldn't find it anywhere. And there doesn't seem to be a way to access profile manager on android. I also poked around with adb with no success. I was hoping to make a backup before using sync but I gave up and did sync anyway. Is there anyway to recover this data?

Firefox on Windows works extremely well. On my cell phone (Samsung A32) it also works very good but I cannot find anything in the Settings or Help (again on the cell phone) to check for updates?

While browsing a site the site responded by saying my browser (i.e., Firefox) was not up to date.

I immediate went to find a "Check for updates" button in either Settings or Help. I could not find anything.

I assume the cell Firefox is up to date since the latest rev is shown as 122.0 and dated in late January 2024 but there is no button within the cell phone App to verify this.

Could someone suggest how to check on my Android cell phone (Samsung A32) if the Firefox is up to date?

Appreciate any suggestions.

I am writing to seek assistance regarding a challenge I have encountered while attempting to install a custom add-on from a file.

I have followed the steps to enable the debug menu on Firefox Nightly, and I have also successfully downloaded the custom add-on in XPI format to my mobile device. However, upon navigating to the Add-ons settings, I am unable to locate the option to install the add-on from a file.

I have reviewed the official documentation and community forums for guidance, but I have not found a solution specific to my situation.

Could you kindly provide detailed instructions on how to install a custom add-on from a file on Firefox Nightly for Android? If there have been any recent changes or updates in this regard, I would greatly appreciate any information or resources you could share. Thank you for your time and assistance. I value the work Mozilla does to enhance the Firefox experience and am eager to resolve this matter.

Best regards, Saad

Ever since upgrading to the latest version I'm having all kinds of problems with my s22 Galaxy Android. Thinking somehow like on a PC it would save all my bookmarks I deleted the app and then reinstalled it only to find that I've lost everything! Is there a way to restore this?
