Is there anyway to change how much History is stored? I'm on Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Android 9. Using Firefox 68.9. Looking for website I visited 4 days ago, however, History has dropped those sites already, and I didn't think to bookmak it, now I can't remember the url. Need longer History record. Thanks folks.

I recently went through all my bookmarks on desktop to categorize and filter them. While doing this, I noticed that none of my bookmarks are being synced to my phone. This led me to checking the synced devices list on both my phone and my desktop. The desktop says my phone is connected, while my phone states it is connected only to a different desktop to the one I did all my organizing on. I tried dis- and reconnecting my phone to get it to recognize the desktop, no dice. I downloaded another firefox app by mozilla (Why does both Firefox browser and Mozilla Firefox browser exist on the playstore?), signed in, it synced to my phone, not my intended result. This is not a confusion about the use of the Mobile folder, as my goal is to receive the bookmarks I put in the mobile folder of my desktop. I do not have over 5000 bookmarks, so that shouldnt be the issue I am currently on Windows 10 and on Android 10. Can somebody help me sync my bookmarks? (I do not care for the bookmarks on my phone, as they seem to be the same as the ones on desktop where before sorted and filtered them. They are a nuisance) Additional Information: When I went to pair the second browser, the phone stated a lost connection and a failed pairing, while my desktop congratulated me on pairing a new device.

Greetings and thank you for your time. I am so tired of every update changing how Firefox Android handles video and audio file types ~ MIMEs. I want a permanent setting to propting us , to ask us what I want to do when we click on a video or audio link. Maybe everyone else just wants to play it. But I don't and I'm sure I'm not alone. -_-

It would be wonderful if Firefox Android would have the same answers as Firefox for desktop specifically: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file#w_download-actions

Maybe I'm not searching correctly but I spent hours searching for a solution before posting this question. Also for previous FFA versions this question is always being asked after every update! WHEN will we as a community stop disabling the ability to control what we do with audio and video links! -_-

Please do not suggest a third-party plugin when this is an innate browser function!

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hi Team!

Syncing my browser and android app over my profile, eg. bookmarks doesn't work (my last apparently sporadic sync was 11/6, now it's 29/6). Even if I press 'sync now' on my phone nothing happens. I already tried disconnecting and connecting my profile again, that updated the sync then but not since. My app is on the newest update. What's going on here? Thanks for your help.

We've been sending our customers review links supplied by Google for customers to review us on Google. In Google business you can create a username, and then it creates the link in the format : Https://g.page/username/review?gm

When I paste this URL into Firefox on my desktop or my other Android phone browsers (Chrome, Duckduckgo), it works fine. When I paste in in Firefox Android it gives me this error : 404. That’s an error.

The requested URL /local/writereview?placeid=ChIJS9TKEcsf2YgR_Aw8cY-spxw&source=g.page.m&laa=merchant-review-solicitation was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks!

When replying in Yahoo mail, typing adds seemingly random characters before and after the cursor.

This does not happen when composing a new email.

This only happens in the mobile version of Yahoo’s email pages. When “request desktop site” is checked, typing in replies works as expected.

Hi I have a small homemade htm-file stored on my phone (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ShZdMFNoMyC6e4K5b_1nxn8F8ZSsZe7g/view?usp=sharing). With a shortcut from homescreen that opens in Firefox, however it's 50-50 whether that will actually load the content, otherwise it just shows a white page no content. Tapping the reload ('arrow circle') does nothing. Selecting the url-bar then tap Enter/Return on the keyboard then actually loads the content - always, no exceptions. Has been like this always on this phone for a year - Samsung A40, Android 10. FF 68.7 atm. Suggestions, comments? Thanks
