I need to reach the about:config menu but firefox takes me to a search menu on the engine I chose (duckduckgo). It provides lots of nice info but not how to reach this feature.

I am using Chrome OS so possibly that is the issue.

Thanks!

Dear Mozilla Firefox Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to request the addition of the Vencord extension to the Firefox Add-ons repository.

Vencord is a highly useful tool that enhances user productivity by allowing users to customize Discord. Many users, including myself, rely on its functionalities for theming and plugins. Having it available in the official Firefox Add-ons repository would significantly improve accessibility and convenience for Firefox users. Right now, I am using Tampermonkey to use Vencord, but having an official add-on would be much more convenient.

I kindly request you to consider this addition. If there is any further information or testing required, please let me know, and I would be happy to assist.

I am writing to request assistance with an issue I am encountering on the latest version of the Firefox browser for Android. My goal is to open specified pages in the same tab using Intent from a third-party custom application. However, I have observed that different URLs open in separate tabs, contrary to my expectations.  Current Implementation:  Here is the code snippet I am currently using: java: Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW); intent.setData(uri); intent.putExtra(Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID, packageName); startActivity(intent); Expected Behavior:  I expect different URLs to open in the same tab without opening new tabs. This functionality is crucial for my application.  Issue Background:  I have researched similar issues and found that users have had comparable needs using Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID. Unfortunately, it appears that Firefox has not fully addressed this functionality. The EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID is a feature that modern browsers should ideally support to enhance user experience and maintain continuity within a single tab.  References:  I have referred to the following discussions and issues for additional context:  Mozilla Support Forum: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1364869 GitHub Issue: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/23329 Request:  I kindly request that the Firefox team consider adapting this functionality officially or provide an alternative solution if it has already been addressed. Any relevant documentation or guidance on achieving this behavior would be highly appreciated.  Thank you for your time and assistance.

When I press the home button, the tab I was on remains in the background and a new tab is opened if I tap on one of the shortcuts. Is it possible to make it so that it stays in the same tab like on PC?

in any other open tab, auto-hide addressbar/toolbar properly goes into hiding as soon as i begin scrolling, portrait or landscape.

ONLY IN AN ABOUT:CONFIG TAB, auto-hide addressbar/toolbar requires that i 1) scroll all the way to end of page and then 2) vigorously & multiply scroll down, through the stuck bar. any upward scroll & i have to start from scratch. portrait & landscape.

this Android alpha cancer has metastacized to Android beta. danged annoying.

please fix this bug & don't regress it back in.

Using android firefox latest. I just have a suggestion. I'm using the browser with the url bar and buttons on.the bottom of the screen, to be better reachable with my thumb. Now when I long press a link the popup with the options list appears in the middle of the screen, making me reach quite high/using both hands. If it appeared on the bottom it would be more comfortable to use.

Thanks for making firefox!

I gotta ask... why isn't there a setting to remove private browsing on firefox? Now yeah sure it's free security but we got add ons for that. I've always felt like private browsing and incognito stuff is just a way to go to pornhub feeling secured from criticism. That's why I quit Chrome (+ being able to watch YouTube with ads for free) so I gotta ask again... why isn't there a setting to remove private browsing on firefox?

How do we permanently block and keep a website from being able to return bk into a person's life after the site was the cause of an immense amount of financial and emotional hardship. By having something that does this, like the Duck browser does, our clients, friends and family will feel more safe, right?

I keep running into this bug where, on the odd occasion I am trying to download a file and the download occurs slow sometimes from the server's end, I might start a download of the same file twice. Then when one finishes downloading, if I press cancel on the ongoing download, it deletes the other downloaded file from my storage. This probably happens because the files are named the exact same but cancelling a downloading file should not delete an already downloaded, different file.

Since updating to v 122.0 (Android) today, my home page displays a permanent intrusive "Customise homepage" button on my Homepage (see attached picture).

This is totally redundant when you can simply access this in 2 clicks from the taskbar. Why are such cosmetic features forced onto users? Customising my homepage is something I would do once, I don't need it to be slapped on my face every time I reach my home page.

Please advise, this is extremely annoying.
