Is there a way to globally turn off the appearance of all web site accessibility widgets for the Android version of Firefox? These widgets, while I'm sure are helpful to those that need them, are a nuisance to users who don't and are typically located in easy to reach (read: accidentally), space-taking areas of the browser. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hi there! I have a new S22+, all systems up to date. I'm logged into Firefox on both the Android and on my Mac Air.

Last time I migrated to a new phone, Sync filled in all my passwords on the phone. This time I'm having to copy and paste all the passwords; Samsung autopass (or whatever it's called) offers to fill them in, but of course doesn't have those passwords anyway.

What do I need to tweak or do differently to get the passwords to fill in?

When I clicked Firefox from the “Share via” apps list, it just goes to random apps. It’s rare that this happens but it’s kind of frustrating.

This also happened to Fennec F-Droid, which is a Firefox-based browser and others like Mull, Iceraven etc.

I screen captured the error to make it more clear: https://streamja.com/49ldz

Do i need to add items in collections to bookmarks to sync between phones?

My account shows no bookmarks. On phone 1, I have several collections, no bookmarks. On phone 2 I have nothing. How do I get the links (from my collections) on phone 1 to transfer to phone 2? When I sync nothing happens (I understand collections don't sync). I would expect all my links would sync as bookmarks. They don't.

What's the fix?

Do I need to click each phone 1 link, add to bookmarks, sync, then manually recreate collections on phone 2? Collections is a totally useless feature if you can't sync them (yeah, I read elsewhere that Firefox may add syncing in the future

I have two lists of recovery keys and I'm wondering if there is a way to test them to see which one is correct.

I have no idea if it makes a difference but to my best knowledge I have a Firefox Original and Firefox Beta account.

It may just be Firefox information in general is all the same.

Either way I wanted to see which list of recovery keys was valid.

I tryed to add Addons to firefox-Andorid with the soultion way using firefox nightly and an own addon collection, but it doesn´t fit anyway. After that processe i just get the information, that "there are now Addons" in my normal Addons-liste - so i can´t see or install no more of the usuall addons unless i remove my customerized addon-collection.

What went wrong - is that solution way still up to date?

thx:)

This only happens on mobile. Whenever I leave the Firefox app (without closing) and reopen it, the website reloads and everything I had done beforehand is lost. This makes it impossible to use Firefox along with other apps at the same time. The same issue also occurs when I have to open another app (from Firefox) to upload a file; after selecting an image to upload, I'm back to Firefox, but the website reloads and forgets I was uploading something.

TLDR; websites reload upon leaving Firefox, without closing the application

[email address] was my verry first and only email address that i signed up with and made full usee of what i could do individualy and figure out as time goes on ...Until my phone got stollen and i ended up losing only number that it was linked with..now more drama is password and the security question are both a bit of a heartache and deep stresses..because i make use of my email address on basicaly evrry social networking site that im following or participate in almost made it worse and could've been worse coz i nearly forgot about backup and atleast im now more careful unlike before where i realy didn't expect something so deep and really almost beyond any kind of repair or chance that i probably could get it back.. And im guessing me struggling in the way that i did.that someone who's IT skilled and definitely equipped with enough knowledge is going to be needed..And how i deeply wish and pray that someone can renew my faith by doing something that a number of guys with so called IT experience who kinda breaged about it were all stuck and xualy shocked coz it sounded easy until they themselves were speechless..atleast there's one guy who says there is a way. That is why i chose to ask whoever doesnt matter for their help and info please guys anyone who is willing to be kind enough to help..i would really appreciate and Definitely help wont be be in vain..a blessing towards someone who helps others is rightfully earned...

I have been able to block all search in the address bar on Firefox for Windows but cannot find a setting to do the same in Android.

It is an ADDRESS BAR after all and a HUGE security risk to find search in the same area
