I am a retired software programmer. As a hobby, I design and develop apps for mobile and desktop devices. Firefox will run an html file from a local filesystem, Chrome will not. Besides, I just prefer firefox.

After the latest firefox (android) update, all the references to local fonts stopped working. The firefox developers, probably in closing security holes, caused my work to come to a screeching halt!!! They really F'd it up! And there is no reasonable alternative.

Give me back my work. Find another solution besides walling off the universe! Are they autocrats, czars, dictators, Kims, Putins? What's up with dictating rather than being part of free enterprise?

I'm so disappointed in Mozilla and firefox. I need an alternative. Any fixes or ideas?

I'm sure I've asked this but it doesn't show in My Questions. Other Bookmarks are so annoying. It appears the folder can't be removed but how do I delete all the bookmarks therein?

Also, when bookmarking, if I want to select where to stir the bookmark, I have to navigate par EVERY bookmark I've ever saved. On a PC the folders are collapsed. On a much smaller mobile phone, ever folder is expanded!

I am in the process of upgrading to a new mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus), and I have been trying to figure out how to set Firefox to save to the sdcard, but I can't find the settings that are responsible for that.

Has the ability to save to the sdcard been removed? Or is it hidden somewhere that I haven't found yet?

Cheers, Steven.

Lg G6 H873 on latest firmware 8.0.0 i.

Set Firefox to clear all privacy items on exit.

Launch Firefox, do something like check mail.yahoo.com, then log out. Quit Firefox from menu. Sometimes it exists correctly, sometimes, it gets stuck on clearing privacy items and never exits properly.

Hello Everyone. I would like to first say how much I appreciate your help with the craziness we have been going through. It was such a relief knowing my son's new device is fixed. My son and I went though 3 phones 2 different carriers and both of our laptops are still unavailable from this adventure. With that being said it has crassed my mind it could be someone I know or a rare quinsidents. Last night my S10 had red writing that popped up over my email address stating not being able to send a conformation Sign up email or something along those lines and I wanted to know what could of caused that? Or if it was the a part of the issue currently? Main point of the question is my S10 battery died during the morning right before I loaded everything is the app/browser. Could this be check this? I tried to accessed my phone after charging but I'm and locked out of it. Also my son said he was not sure if he added in the report earlier this stepfather's email element2060@ gmail. Com. Thank you so very much everyone from the bottom of my heart your are my Device Savers. Sencerally Nicole Cohen.

In Nova launcher, I create a custom icon for each of 100 Firefox bookmark shortcuts on my Android home screens.

But, after an Android "Backup & Restore" (including Nova's backup and import)... All of my links are broken. Touching a shortcut says "app isn't installed" (while both- Firefox and Nova - ARE installed)

Any suggestions on how to lay out custom-icon website shortcuts which SURVIVE an Android Backup and Restore?

Thank you.
