Just got a samsung phone and decided to break it in and when I attempt to watch videos on pornhub and push play it opens a new page [inappropriate link removed by moderator]. Using chrome to watch the same video it plays the video in their player just like the regular website on a computer. Any way to make firefox do the same?

YouTube mobile redirects to Desktop Site

This began yesterday (Feb 9, 2020), when I refreshed a YouTube video I was watching, and suddently it was in desktop view. Since then, all my bookmarked YouTube links redirect to the desktop site, & any address I input with “m.youtube.com” redirects to “https://www.youtube.com/?app=desktop”. Clicking and unclicking “Request desktop site” did nothing, clearing the cache/cookies/history or checking for an update of Firefox yielded no results. It's very frustrating, because the desktop view on mobile does not allow me to adjust the video settings (eg captions, playback speed) or see my actual list of subscribed-to channels on the subscriptions page, not to mention how small everything looks and the fact that I have to zoom in to press most basic buttons.

All my Google searches yielded (apart from how to request the desktop view, which is the opposite of my problem) is that YouTube is discontinuing its “classic view,” but I don't see how that translates to Firefox redirecting every “m.youtube.com...” URL to “...?app=desktop”.

Any help with this issue would be appreciated!

I received a notification on my Firefox Browser (Android 10) about the next BIG update few days back... So today I decided to check PlayStore if the update is pushed in my country... But I came accross this another version of Firefox which looks similar to the features described in the Update article...

Is Mozilla Firefox Browser the new version of Firefox Browser? Or whats the difference between them?...

I'm using ff on my android tablet. Along with bookmarks and history, I can click on the 'top sites' tab, which let's me scroll thru two screens, each with 8 pinned sites. I just pinned a site on the second screen, and it was immediately'bumped' to the first screen, and one of my favorite pinned sites was automatically moved to the second screen.

I then unpinned and re-pinned this favorite site, thinking it would move it to the first screen, just whatas happened with the newer site, but instead it just got moved to a different spot on the second screen?

What I want to know, do I have any control as to which 'top sites' go on which screen? As far as I can tell, I don't and FF seems to have a mind of its own as to where these pinned site are placed?

External links overriding current tabs instead of opening a new tab

Hello,

I've recently switched to Firefox mobile on my Android (Samsung Galaxy 7) because the Samsung browser had a few issues. However, I'm having a few issues with tabs. There seems to be no setting for forcing an external link (from another app) to open in a new tab in Firefox. Instead, it overrides a current tab. Most people keep tabs open for later use, so I can't understand why Firefox would be designed to override that behavior. It's like going back in time before tabbed browsing became commonplace. I've tried editing about: config, but the setting "browser.link.open_external" is already set to 3, which as far as I can tell is supposed to open links in a new tab (why is there no manual/database somewhere with all the current about:config settings listed? How do people memorize what each number means? Why is this not more user-friendly?)

As you might be able to tell, I'm pretty frustrated as this is a very minor thing that should be easy to adjust in normal everyday settings. Everyone opens links in a new tab these days. It's much easier to close an extra tab than it is to find a site you were saving for later that got overridden by clicking a link.

Thanks for any help.

I'll admit, I'm a new user to Firefox for Android, however I do believe I am doing everything wrong when downloading and activating themes. I press the install button, confirm that it may install the theme on the pop-up and verify in the add-ons that the new theme is enabled and all other ones disabled. I've closed and force closed the browser too and it doesn't work. I just want a damn dark theme to start working!

Hi,

I updated to the latest, utterly, preposterously, appallingly, awfully, obnoxiously bad version of FF on Android and immediately bailed back to V68.11.0 which I found on the web. Imagine my shock and horror at finding the new version back on my system again, without my intervention, a few hours later !!

Please can someone tell me how to set up my system so that it doesn't update FFA to any later versions, and so that the latest update is not shown in the Play Store under "My apps & games" as otherwise it is likely that the software abomination that is the latest version of FFA will find its way back onto my tablet.

I have spent hours on this, setting up and re-setting up my browser and I really have no idea what on earth was going on in the minds of the developers of this latest crock. Is it the secret intention of the leadets of this project to kill FF completely ? It seems that every change tnat is made makes browsing less intuitive and easy and there is absolutely zero payback in terms of useful functionality. Seriously, is it your intention to kill FF altogether ? It really seems like it.

But if you could answer my other questions as the higher priority, that would help.

Thanks,
