I'm using DWService.net (a Teamviewer-like System) to access my computers and server.

The screensharing function is fully webbased and also works from mobile browsers.

Today, my Firefox for Android got updated to version 79.0.2 (Build #2015755339), and since then I noticed a weird behavior:

When I connect to a computer with Dwservice and do a click, the cursor re-centers to the screen of the mobile phone.

On the 1st picture, I clicked the minimize button and right afterwards the cursors jumps to the position shown in the 2nd one.

The Help page says to click on Bookmarks and then click on the folder icon with the + icon on it, in the upper right corner, to add a new folder.

No icon exists.

The only way I can add a folder is if I bookmark a page I go to.

I want to create a bunch of folders without having to go to a bunch of sites and bookmark each site.

Hello,

Video recording of the issue: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1JfPP-asNloE3WJZAAWHsn6pt5HcbYvWI 1. Open a page with reference to some particular part of the page in url (i.e. it looks like <URL>#<tag>). A simple example is to open some Doxygen docs and click on some function in an outline. 2. Scroll away from the place you initially arrived to (i.e. away from the tag position). 3. Scroll down (up) if you previously scrolled up- (down-) wards with respect to the tag location. 4. You are back at the tag (without intent).

I guess this happens due to update of the page (this will trigger any other browser to reset current location to the starting one).

Regards, Ivan

How can I get back my good old UI?

I want to make this my default Browser in my phone, I have a Samsung S20 but it's kind of impossible. Why can't I get Firefox to open a link from a Facebook page in the Facebook app, or an Instagram, Amazon, eBay one? I have the apps installed for a reason. I want to press a Google link and get the browser to open the related app.

Is there a way to change default navigation from a Firefox Google search? Searching in browser is more reliable than searching with Google maps or Waze, but when you tap the navigate button it prompts me to download a different navigation app that I don't want. Is there any way to change this?

Like in Firefox Focus, trying to access local storage using `/sdcard` is denied or returns an error, however on the Firefox common, accessing /sdccard storage is pretty simple. Although that's pretty helpful in certain cases, however I would like that to manually disable. Are there any ways to do so, such that putting in /sdcard in the address bar returns a N/A result. (:
