I have tried the "other devices" button but reading list is not there. I have tried switching to desktop site and back again to no avail.

There has obviously been a change to how reading list is accessed, but it seems to have gone wrong for me.

I really found the reading list so useful that I'm lost without it! It was working up to yesterday (I think).

Suppose I have an online account for a service (e.g. Twitter). I buy a new mobile phone and I install Twitter on it. I don't remember my Twitter password, so I go to passwords.google.com to view it. That's because my Twitter web login is saved in Chrome and synced on the Google account. I now remembered my password and can login into the Twitter app.

Could I do the same with Firefox Accounts?

Hi,

Is there a possibility to use an Android home screen shortcut to start a specific website in Firefox' private mode?

This would make it possible to use weeronline.nl (one of many sites) that forces the user to accept ALL cookies before being able to visit the site.

Thank you,

I'm using a dell Inspiron with windows vista (home basic). I downloaded Skype and was promoted to install some emoticon thing with it and somehow it closed my browsers. When I went to open it again, I'm getting messages from Microsoft windows that says "Firefox has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." I uninstalled Skype and the emoticons, restarted my laptop, and Firefox still won't open at all. Please help me! Thanks.

Basically, several times recently, I have clicked on a trusted link but gone to an unrelated site. My computer was professionally decontaminated of viruses yesterday. I had the System Care Antivirus virus. This morning, it happened again. I clicked on a USPS Print Postage link, and I was taken to some car repair site. I am now running a Malware removal scan again, even though the last two scans came up clean. Does anyone know what could be redirecting me?

My firefox was perfect, set up exactly how I wanted it and since the latest update it's all screwed up... for starters, when I open the browser I just want it to go to Google.ca and for some reason I can't find where to set a home screen up anywhere. So it loads to a blank page, not even Google, and there's no home button, so every single time I open up my browser I need to put in google.ca... annoying. Secondly no matter what I select in the options, it seems to want to bring back my previous tabs every time I close the browser, I just want it to close out and open a new tab each time... why is this so difficult? If there is any advice out there, please help... I'm sure I have more, but if those could get fixed for now it would just make using it so much better... image is of my new "home" screen... terrible...

I am not even going into the details, but your browser in Android just got put onto the "REVERT TO OLDER VERSION AND NEVER UPDATE" list.

Are you serious? Youtube no longer works with screen off, this side-by-side tab selection screen is horrible.....VERTICAL WAS FINE.

You are just screwing with shit because you have nothing better to do, is that it?

AGAIN, I have just downloaded ver 52 and I'm sticking with it. You can push this junk on the masses, but not to me. I bet the PC version is next to get some ridiculous update. So that's now turned off too!

If you want to let me know when you've reverted these changes, I'll gladly continue updating once I have reviewed them.

I want to import my bookmarks into firefox for android from an file based format. html, json or xml anything... Using Sync is * not * an option because I * never* provide sensible personal information to cloud services. The most secure way to protect sensible data is simply not giving it away...

This requirement is not a new one: https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/986583 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/979658

Please take a stand why you still persist to meet this simple requirement from many users though privacy is a major principle in the Mozilla Manifesto https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/about/manifesto/

Sir , in the FIREFOX browser app for Andriod there is no built in download manager , it is also not in add on store , this is a very important thing which you must give to us , in current version we are not able to pause and resume our downloads and to view with how much internet speed it's downloading , in countries like India we have very high data rates and also inconsistent and slow connections so when downloading a file which is pause and resume supported from the back-end side we are still not able to have pause and resume support in the Browser itself , firefox is a great browser but in this feature it gets beaten by the browsers like UC and it's not acceptable , i hope you improve this/
