Hello, I'm currently on Firefox 62 for Android. I understand that Firefox 63 was released a few weeks ago on 22-Oct however I still do not see the update in play store. Should I just wait for the update to appear or sideload from apkmirror? For info, I've noticed that I generally seem to get the update a week or so after it has been released but have need had to wait this long.

I post questions here and then, later when I want to see if anyone has answered, I can't find my post.

Other times, when I do receive an answer in my email, it may require a reply. If i just go to the forum & search for my user name, or the user name of the person that replied, or a word or phrase from my post, the results of my search either turn up nothing, or other people's posts, not mine.

Alternatively, the email may contain a link to the post that was made in reply to my question. However, when I click it and come to that post, I see no way for me to reply.

I have a HTC6545LVW phone and currently connect to internet with Wi-Fi on my phone. That is the only way I can get online and it only works for my phone and can't be shared or transferred to another device. Therefore I can't use the sync function to get my saved Firefox data from my PC. I am looking at my bookmarkbackups file on my PC and I have my phone connected by USB cable. I also enabled file transfer and can see all my files on my phone's internal shared storage on my PC. What is the easiest way to move the backup file from my PC to my phone?

On October 8th 2018 my phone alerted me to an app taking a picture in the background using a permission without my knowledge. Yet your permission explanation page plainly reads this will not happen. So, why did it? It also says it happened at 22:12 which is an hour later than the time in my timezone. Any explanation would be greatly appreciated.

For example I want to visit "http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/" and type that in the URL bar. Firefox adds "www." in front of it (after "http://") which becomes an invalid url. With DuckDuckGo browser it doesn't add "www." so it loads fine. How to visit this .onion site with Firefox? Shouldn't "www." not be added?

I've seen this asked a few times and they have all been a generic answer that really doeant apply to what is happening. I'm hoping I can articulate a better description as to what's going on.

Ever since the latest android update I've randomly received system notifications of Mozilla using the camera in the background. There is no prompt to allow or decline and it's never for any specific site. I took screenshots for reference but the only tabs I had open this time was summit racing, rockauto and Google. None of which require camera use. The only site that's always been open when I've had the occurence is Google but it's extremely random. It is always via firefox and as I stated Google is the only page that's been open every time and again there is no prompt for permission. I have went in this time and disabled camera permissions for firefox as I finally got a screenshot before the message went away.

This has clearly been an issue for others as well but the answers I've seen have not been consistent for what's happening. Unless I havent found a better reply.

Thanks and hopefully this can be addressed.
