Good morning. I have no problem with Firefox on my desktop accurately showing my location. If I pop onto a store site it automatically shows the right zip code. However I am NY and whenever I use my phone to access somewhere that requires location it defaults to usually somewhere in New Jersey. My Android on Firefox is up to date, my phone (Samsung Galaxy A10E) says all it's software is up to date and I am allowing access to location for Firefox correctly, I believe. But it is frustrating that every time I am out I have to manually change the zip and sometimes go through the step of making a store 'my store' just to get an idea of inventory in my area. Thanks for any help you can provide in advance.

I have an Acer Chromebook laptop. I am on a website trying to upload videos. When I use the Firefox browser and try to upload from my Google Drive, all of my folders are there but none of my pictures or videos are in the folders. But, if I go back to the Chrome browser, and use the Google Drive, all of my content appears in the folders in the Google Drive as it should be. Why will the pictures in my folders in the Google Drive not work with the firefox browser?

I know that private browsing means nothing is recorded. Data is stored in the RAM during that session. When Firefox is closed, the RAM is flushed. Why does cache and data grow during a private browsing in the android settings?

Hi, there is no option to delete all saved logins in Firefox at once. At least no visible option. It would be great to have such an option instead of need to wipe-out everything. Deleting hundreds of logins one-by-one is really not OK. On desktop this is doable by deleting logins.json, is there any similar "hack" for Android version? I see this as security issue. Thanks.

When I try to send a tab from Firefox Android to PC, everything is instant. If I try to send from PC to mobile, the tab with never come if I don't manually sync the account from the mobile device.

I'm not sure if this is a bug or I need to tweak a system setting, but Firefox Android will never receive the tab if I won't manually sync the android device.

Fire fox crashes right when I open it. itll open and show it at the hopme page and then immediately crash, I cant access settings for it because of the crash. this is so annoying.. I tried to restart, I tried to force close then go on. I dont get an error code just it saying it crashed...

I tried to download an older version but it always says "failed to download" when It installs completely... I dont want to uninstall it because theres tabs on there I REALLY NEED. If they disappear itll be so upsetting....

I recently updated it to the most recent version and bam. still an issue...how can I fix this? I would be fine if i could just get all my tabs and then reinstall it...but I cant access the profile or anything since its on an android. my phone is amazing the s20 + and it never has any issues EVER. My android is the most recent version since I always update when one is released... Its been like this for 6 days now

How do I stop Firefox from open a new tab for every action?

I have the newest version of Firefox on my OnePlus 6. Since the browser updated itself, every action short of clicking a 'next' link opens a new tab. Why? What is the rationale behind this? Why doesn't clicking the 'back' button close the newly opened tab? Is there a security or safety reason for this change? And most importantly HOW DO I TURN THIS OFF? Having a function that automatically closes tabs after a day/week/month/whatever doesn't resolve the issue, it's a tiny band-aid over a gaping wound. 5 minutes of browsing through bookmarks should NOT result in 12 open tabs that need to be closed.

When I sign into,accounts@firefox.com my google security settings show 4 new devices, that are unknown to me with the IP.217.123.28.146 with a NEXUS 5 and 3 other samsung galaxy devices. They look identical to my only3 devices, but the last 4 digits of the IP address are not mine. Totally wrong. My frst sign in on these unknown devices was in June, and October 15, 2020. Why is this happening? Not my devices.
