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

In about.config i set javascript.enabled false for most browsing, unless i really need to do otherwise (e.g. ecommerce). If i close the app (menu quit), and restart it, javacript.enabled is reset true. This behaviour is not replicated for other settings i may make, e.g. dom.storage.enabled, or permissions.default.image. Being Android i have no root so no possibility of creating a user.js to override Firefox ignoring my settings. This seems to be a bug. Version is Android Nightly version 121.0a1, 2023-11-05.

The power draw can be heinous. In 37 minutes of use so far for this full charging cycle, it has used 5 times the power (measured by Android's battery page) as RedReader has in its roughly 2.5 hours. Is there a way that can be brought to heel a bit?

Hello,

I've recently began to experience some pretty nasty behavior of firefox on android. After some time of using the browser (with closing the app in between), The screen starts to flicker (on every website) and the app becomes unusable. I have to force stop the app for it to work for a while again, until it starts flickering again. I have few theories myself (Something wrong with the web-engine, or garbage collector perhaps?) but I don't know how true they are. I did recently update to Android 14 and didn't see this behavior beforehand. I can't show a demonstration because I can't attach video's. Can I post a link to a video?

All logins passwords and bookmarks disappeared from my Android phone after the latest Mozilla update (version 120.1.0).

On the phone version I can't locate any previous Profiles to check whether the filesight be there. In fact it was necessary to revert to my trusty handwritten paper password list to even login to write this query.

I have updated Firefox/Mozilla every time an update was announced.

This is not the reliability I would expect from Mozilla and I hope you can help me to recover these files.

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.
