On any site I have tried (including this one right now) the Enter button of my digital keyboard does nothing. I am on a Kindle Fire HD 8 (7th generation). The Enter button works just fine in other apps, and worked in the browser apps I used before Firefox. I just checked and it's still working in the native Silk browser.

Waaaay to frequently, i can not access lowes.com with Firefox. At 1st I thought it was a VPN issue, but turned it off and still can't access, getting:

You don't have permission to access "http://www.lowes.com/" on this server.

Reference #18.d33a2f17.1664628940.166ca583

Happens on desktop and android versions, vpn off or on, using http or https, but at the same time CAN access on Brave, Chrome, and whatever stupid name Mickeysoft calls their browser this month... So I feel i have isolated it as solely a Firefox issue.

I am chrome users but now want to move from chrome to Mozilla because I have heard much about Mozilla. Chrome is showing me issues in Google docs, google drive management that's why I am moving from chrome to Mozilla but at Mozilla I have also faced an issue which name is mobile responsive I have seen a website named as top flutter app development company which is loading properly on chrome but showing difficulty on Mozilla. I have noticed this issue with many sites I don't why Mozilla is showing this issue. this website is loading properly on opera also but showing issue on Mozilla. I tried my best to resolve this issue but I am not able to resolve the issue. I don't even know whether the issue is in the website or in the browser. can you please tell me where the issue is so that I can move to Mozilla free because Mozilla has more features than chrome

When I open any link in another page, Firefox always takes me to the very bottom of the page. I initially thought it had to do with my phone being buggy itself (it was an old thing), but now that I got a new phone, got to test other browsers, this seems like a bug exclusive to Firefoxe.

The browser was working fine at first but after 2 days it started doing it again. Is there a way yo fix this annoying, time-wasting issue?

This behavior can also be observed in Youtube, for example. After exiting the full screen, the Youtube search bar is no longer visible. It reappears when you rotate the device and sometimes also when you scroll down or zoom in and out. Unfortunately, this does not work on websites that are not scrollable. There the hidden content (mostly the header) is only visible again after rotating the device (reloading has no effect). This seems to be a similiar bug: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303054 or this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20636580/firefox-for-android-address-bar-overlaps-content-is-there-a-solution On my Android tablet, first the Android navigation bar overlaps the website and then after a fullscreen and fullscreen exit, the address bar overlaps instead. It would be nice if these "address bar overlaps content" or "navigation bar overlaps content" bugs could be permanently fixed, especially since I have not found a way to work around the bug through javascript.

I frequently attempt to add shortcuts to web pages to my home screen, but I find that the "Add to home screen" option is not always available. I'd appreciated to insight into that.

If that is the case, I attempt to choose "Add to shortcuts" if it is a present, but I have no idea where to go from there to access the shortcut, since it does not appear on my home page. My only clue Is that I notice it has a "pinned" icon associated with it, so maybe there is a repository containing theses shortcuts? I looked for something related to that but no luck.

Whenever I type "goo" into the address bar, it will prefill with "google.co.uk"

i haven't visited uk version of google in years and have been using .com forever

but recently firefox decided to offer me .co.uk version for some reason and now i always have to delete the prefill and type manually which is time consuming and annoying

i tried clearing history, deleted all history, removed app, reinstalled app, deleted cache and local data, logged out of my firefox account .. changed language to something other than English (UK) but it still thinks it needs to prefill the .co.uk URL

why did it go crazy all of a sudden and how do i make it stop?

For a couple of months "Unlock Firefox" has been coming up on my S10 phone. Clicking on it does nothing. It's happened on a few sites. I've included an example here from the LNER train app but it's also happening elsewhere. How do I stop it from coming up? My Firefox app is up-to-date.

Hey, so, there is an issue I've been facing. There's a site I've visited a few times on mobile and stopped using a bit ago, but the thing is no matter what I do, it keeps popping up as an autocomplete when I'm typing in the search bar. This only happens on the mobile version of Firefox, it doesn't pop up on the desktop version even though they are synced together, and no matter what I Google, it keeps showing me the instructions to delete autofill entries on the desktop browser. Literally nothing comes up for the android version, or any mobile version at all. Please help, this is exceptionally frustrating.
