Hi there! I'm kind of clueless with this problem of mine. Is there any way to set a homepage on android firefox, where I hit the home button on the left top corner and it is just going to take me to eg. google.ie? Same like on the dektop one? Also when i hit a link the mobile browser just keeps opening a new tab anytime I click on one of them? Hope it is understandable, english isn't my first language. thanks in advance for any help.

I've deselected to not have any shortcuts on my homepage from my history & they're still popping up. I only want the short cuts I save. I either have to delete them one by one or clear my history (which I might need sometimes) to get rid of them. It's annoying me enough to not want to use Firefox. I want a neat home page without any clutter.

Icons and Installed Web Sites Disappear on Reboot

Hello Mozilla,

I've seen this posted before, but no answers. I have Android 11, and recently, when I do a reboot, or power down the device entirely and power it back up, all the Installed Web Sites and "Add to my Home Screen" icons disappear.

I do have Firefox to remove all history upon exit, but that history should not include installed bookmarks and "Add to my Home Screen" options.

Is this a known issue? Is there a workaround other than switching off this setting? Is there a logged feature or bug request to handle this properly?

Thanks,

Larry

I found this thread. I set font.name.sans-serif.x-western and added to the start of font.name-list.sans-serif.x-western, but I don't think something has changed. It's Fennec F-Droid and the font ABeeZee. So does anyone has some advice? Thank you very much

Costumize which links opened externally on FF for android?

Hey I'm using FF for android (v103) I know I can set FF to open links in external apps or to open links in FF. The problem starts when I want to open some links in FF and some in the external app.

For example: I like the way YouTube is played in FF and want YouTube links to stay in FF, while messanger.com links don't work at all in FF and I want to open them in messanger app.

Can I configure this to happen automatically? Choose which links opened externally and which not?

OK Mozilla, this is just bad design, plain and simple.

When are we getting the bookmarks bar? Users have been asking for this feature for YEARS, and yet you keep ignoring us, why? Why is it so hard to make?

You don't want to give us the bookmarks bar? Fine, how about fixing the home screen? Only 2 rows and 2 pages of bookmarks? Are you guys joking? How about, I don't know, 10 rows and five columns, and 10 pages? You don't have to resize anything, you just have to use the space more wisely.

Also, can you get rid of the top left logo? It's a waste of space, I already know I'm using Firefox, you don't have to remind me every time.

Also #2, move the "private browsing" icon to the 3 dots menu.

Also #3, remove the pin icon from the bookmarks tags.

Also #4, remove the grey border of the favicons, it's more space wasted, you really love wasting space and our time don't you?

Sometimes I feel like you are you do things wrong on purpose, is Google paying you to be this bad? Honestly I can't find another answer, I hope I'm wrong.

Dark theme causes websites to appear washed out

After installing Firefox for android I noticed that webpages were appearing very washed out, colours faded, blacks rendered as grey etc. It seems similar to this issue https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1329680 Trying the resolution there I noticed that about:config just loads as a blank page.

The issue is dependent on the theme active when tab was created. For example if the browser is in light theme and a tab is created, then you change to dark mode, pages will continue to render vibrant until a new tab is created. Conversely changing to light mode pages will remain faded until a new tab is created.

This behavior is also present if the Theme is set to follow OS if OS dark pages are faded, if OS light pages appear normal.

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?
