A recent update (v102) to Firefox for Android has broken "search browsing history". Before, I was able to type "tw" and see a list of ~20 Twitter results from my browsing history, arranged by frequency of visit; now, it only shows one. Is this new behaviour a deliberate change (if so, it's really bad compared to the ease of usability of the feature previously - please revert it!) or a bug?

Mozila VPN on Android sometimes appear to automatically turn itself off.

The explanation could be in your settings on Android: Go to settings, - select Apps, - - choose Mozilla VPN in the list, - - - go to Battery and select background Use,

go back to Mozilla VPN in the list, - - - go to Mobile Data, - - - - turn On "Allow Background Data Usage" - - - - turn On "Allow App while Data saver is On"

now your VPN shouldn't turn off any longer.

When restarting your phone the explanation why the Mozilla VPN is OFF is that to keep your security, the app requires re-authenticating with their servers (new encryption key).

I originally was able to create the home page shortcut to Piped with Chrome, but the shortcut launched Chrome, even though Firefox is my default browser?

Piped [https://piped.kavin.rocks/https://pip.../|Piped]

So I deleted the shortcut. Now, Chrome no longer even offers me the option to "Add to Home Screen" from the Piped page, but it still does for other sites. Within Chrome, It now offers me the option to open the page in Firefox, even if I make Chrome the default browser.

How can I get a shortcut to Piped on my home page that will open in Firefox?

Hello,

Quite à few month ago, after update, my new Firefox for Android does not allow me to access to the print option. I cannot find the page nor the tools options using my mobile. When using edge, chrome or other browser, I still do have this option and therefore able to print pdf copies of the resources I do want to archive. Is it possible to know why these printing options are unaccessible on Firefox using Android ?

Regards

Hi there

On some sites I use, their aps are next to useless as are their mobile sites. I want to be able to access the REAL websites but when I change the URL (e.g. change m.twitch.tv to just twitch.tv) it simply redirects to the mobile site again. How can I force it to show me the full web page instead please ?

Many thanks

Zoe

I'm a physical keyboard user for Android and find it impossible to use Firefox, there doesn't seem to be any documentation on simple keyboard shortcuts for access the addressbar or menubar, getting to search in the page, or access fine-grained tools for navigation like there is on the desktop version.

Where are these features documented? The Android Talkback feature doesn't cut it for me.

Hello!

Look, i just cannot find a way to install my own small addon for firefox android that i made on my own device. I dont need it to be publicly available. I dont need noone to install it. I just want to install it on my own phone, and that's it, nothing more! That's just a small, few-lines-of-code addon which blocks annoying ads on a certain site me and my wife are using. All i want to install it on our phones. I dont care if it will be firefox nightly release for devs, or anything. If there's any way to install it, like using web-ext, adb, or maybe anything other than that - please let me know. I just spent 50x time more trying to install it on my own phone than actually writing it. Please, i really hope you can help. Thank you in advance!
