Very often when clicming the adress bar (almost always on sites like old.reddit.com, the app just stops responding and I must reopen it. I'd like a solution that won't involve removing all my bookmarks, history and saved data.

Hello, for some reason over the last few weeks my mobile Firefox app has been altering my search results and blocking "adult content" when not browsing on incognito mode, websites and apps such as twitter, Reddit and the obvious others that show "nsfw" tagged content just doesn't show up, it is even happening for movies or TV shows marked 18+ on my search engine unless I'm on incognito. How do I amend this? I've not seen this before at all nor have I changed any settings or ever been logged into a Firefox account. Thanks

I think it was the update to 1:15, but I'm not certain when the search engines I had disabled were unable to again. I don't understand why I can't delete, for example, Bing and eBay which I will never ever use, but to have to disable them adventuresjust because I update Firefox, seems ridiculous.

When the "Google Search Fixer" addon is installed and the "Pull to refresh" gesture is enabled, I am not able to freely scroll up on the search results page. After scrolling animation finishes, if I try to scroll up, the browser thinks that I want to refresh the page, therefore the input is sank.

If I visit a website that supports OpenSearch, how do I add it as a search engine?

The article Use gestures in Firefox for Android says I can long tap on a Web Address to add a site as a search engine: however on Android 10 this only gives me the standard "Open", "Cut", "Copy", "Paste", "Share", and "Read aloud".

Manage my default search engines in Firefox for Android has a section on adding a search engine, but it is cumbersome (manually adding the URL and "%s" for the query string). Plus it then lacks useful features of the OpenSearch standard, e.g. displaying an icon.

The new search setting on the address bar is great especially after you decided to diminish your app by only showing me 2 history in an update a year ago. Now i can just search my history again with more than 2 results. However, i want it defaulted to search my history. Why is Google the default and how can i change it?

I use to keep Bookmarks until I specially deleted them. As Bookmarks they stayed. Now when I do automatic search daily delation, the Bookmarks are also removed! I am not an EE but is there some easy way to separate these 2 so I can keep Bookmarks yet delete Search History? Thank you. A Bookmark to me is not permanent or ephemeral but totally under my control like on a book I put back on the self. What is a Bookmarks to Mozilla Firefox?

I'm on version 112.2.0 and I cannot disable the "feature" that haphazardly shoves my history in to groups that have nothing to do with each other but Firefox THINKS are related. The support post I've found discussing this promised there'd be a "disable search groups" option in version 97, but I'm on version 112.2.0, which (for those of you counting) is 5 mainline iterations afterwards. How do I fix this? It's constantly breaking my History.

Hello! Thank you for your help! I want to install my personalized version of startpage as the common search engine on my android mobile.

This is my personalized search string: https://www.startpage.com/do/mypage.pl?prfe=88c786572599bb1107d3c74eaec3b3ca5076330f9b0ee54884a22b7a784d2b0a689bbc9b7a89edd7438b53c487ee2e4e628759948e78c9e03a2a82c5107f459c595a56be6ab8c7def9ac63f6

But it is not possible!

On the mozilla helppage it says (translated from german): https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/suchmaschinen-verwalten-firefox-android#w_hinzufugen-einer-zusatzlichen-vordefinierten-suchmaschine

"If the entered Internet address (URL) of the search string is invalid, an error message is displayed to help you enter a valid Internet address. Important: Make sure that you replace the search string with the placeholder "%s", for example:

https://www.google.com/search?q=%s https://www.startpage.com/sp/search?q=%s https://search.brave.com/search?q=%s https://www.ecosia.org/search?q=%s


But as you can see, in my personalized search string there is no placeholder! What to do to install nevertheless my personalized version of the startpage search string as the common search engine on my android mobile?

Thank´s a lot

Philip
