Mozilla servers (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-android-release) provide outdated versions of Firefox (68.11.0) while Google Play installs the most recent one (79.0.5 at the time of writing). The same is true for Nightly with the build dated back to 2020-01-20 (doesn't seem like last night).

Is there a way to get the recent builds without involving Google?

Hi Mozilla Developer

Thanks for implement a new safe Engine, but... I stay with Mozilla Browser since Firebird, and I love it, till yesterday. I dont like to repeat all Issues complete, but your new forced Version is a Mess. That is patronage through Development and not Free Internet. New unusable UI and lost Functions. - No viewable Tabs on the top - Tab icon over the Page - No Back Button - No about:config - No usable Startscreen - No navogation Buttons - Help pages are wrong or lost - other Funktions move Clicks away, no fast work is possible ...

Please give us the old Version back, till you make a usable Version and release it under a new Name, maybe Firefox simple or no-frills. Than we will see, how many of us change to the new UI.

I hope, I may can stay with you with a usable Version

Problem : no continuous work possible, after every message you have to change the tabs back to the tab you are in

Hallo, mein firefox für android ( samsung note 10+) hat sich automatisch aktualisiert. Ich hatte vor dem update eine add on instaliert. die addon ermöglichte das abspielen von z.b youtube videos im sperbildschirm. Das ist nach dem update nicht mehr möglich. Finde auch kein addon.. ich finde es sehr schade, da ich sehr oft musik im internet höre und dabei mein gerät im hosensack trage. Was ohne sperrbildschirm nicht möglich ist. Wäre schön wen sie mir weiterhelfen köntet.

Dear Firefox

       As a privacy and conscious user. I would like to change Firefox browser from "GSF Dependent" to "GSF Independ" for privacy reasons.

Please add "Always in incognito" feature to prevent browsing history being stored around as it would improve data privacy.

Improve browser sandboxing like Chromium does. The browser needs to improve security as cybersecurities found weak security in the browser.

This is my additional and last suggestion, Please add "Firefox Multi-Container" for mobile as I want to isolate my browsing cookies and data especially when I use social networks.

Do your best Devs! I want Firefox to be more secure and private than Chromium. Since still it doesn't chromium for security, I will wait. Notify us users when done.

I have just been updated to the completely new Firefox Android. How can I make bookmarklets work in the whole new Firefox Android?

I use(d?) Zotero's bookmarklet daily on Firefox Mobile on Android: https://www.zotero.org/downloadbookmarklet

Since the new update, bookmarks do not show up over the current page when tapping the address bar: they only appear as a separate new tab, preventing JavaScript bookmarklets to work.

Does anyone has a workaround? Am I missing something? This massive, unasked for, feature-breaking update of Firefox on Android is really disruptive.

Thanks for any help!

I have a Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus. I use Firefox app (with only one extension, uBlock Origin) to watch Youtube videos, rather than YouTube app.

The issue is when I play a video in fullscreen mode, it appears zoomed (aspect ratio is off). It looks cropped. I have tried this in desktop mode as well with similar outcome. Also, this issue seems to be limited to Youtube (though I only tried two other sites).

Note, I tested playing the same Youtube video on three apps: Firefox, Samsung Internet, and Microsoft Edge. The issue was only with Firefox. I tried looking for a solution, and the only thing I found is adding another extension to the app. However, the extension is not part of the Recommended Extensions program, and I would rather fix the issue than manage it with an add-on.

Any help would be appreciated!

Before latest version of firefox for Android I used cookie auto delete add-on to clean up cookies and local storage once I leave a site, allowing some choosen trusted sites to keep their data.

Latest version removed all of this and the only way to cleanup is to erase cookies or local storage for all sites.

How can I get previous behaviour, since Mozilla decided to remove all but 9 add-ons, among them none allows to manipulate cookies.

In the last time i became very used to the function that when I share a link from any app to firefox, that this pop-up showed up to decide either open link in queue, or add to bookmark or send to any other synced firefox. I often used it as a kind of "read later" function and sent links to my desktop. In the new firefox (got the update two days ago) I can not find this function anymore.

Hi,

Having upgraded to the latest version of Firefox on my Android 8.0 phone, I find it's not:

- offering saved logins for use - offering to save logins I have changed

Is this known issue? Is there something else I need to do?

On a related matter, editing must now be done via Lockwise, but this is not syncing with Firefox it seems.

Again, do I need to check our enable syncing (I have always had sync enabled)?

Thanks!
