To recreate this bug, you need to be using mobile (on your phone), Firefox app, and set the browser to "request desktop site". The website appears fine on chrome or other mobile browsers, or in regular mobile mode (not desktop mode).

The theme on my site seems to break.

Greetings and thank you for your time. I am so tired of every update changing how Firefox Android handles video and audio file types ~ MIMEs. I want a permanent setting to propting us , to ask us what I want to do when we click on a video or audio link. Maybe everyone else just wants to play it. But I don't and I'm sure I'm not alone. -_-

It would be wonderful if Firefox Android would have the same answers as Firefox for desktop specifically: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file#w_download-actions

Maybe I'm not searching correctly but I spent hours searching for a solution before posting this question. Also for previous FFA versions this question is always being asked after every update! WHEN will we as a community stop disabling the ability to control what we do with audio and video links! -_-

Please do not suggest a third-party plugin when this is an innate browser function!

Thank you for your time and consideration.

I'm really upset! The new v79 has half the features and sync wasn't running: always shows "last sync on 1970" and didn't let me select what to sync. I cleared the cache, not solved... I cleared all my data, reconfigured, but still no sync! So I removed the app and manually installed the old one. Guess what? It still doesn't sync!!! Now I'm left with the Firefox I know and love but I can't use it because I have NO credentials and no bookmarks... I would like to kick someone...

I do not understand if my Firefox for Android is able to get the passwords stored in Firefox desktop.

I have sync configured on both and is working correctly for tabs and bookmarks.


For passwords I do not know: I do not seem to be able to access those stored on my laptop from mobile.

I have had this device ASUS MEMO Pad for 6 months and Firefox for Android has never been able to play any media or plugin content without crashing. I have tried playing flash with the appropriate flash plugin installed and without and it crashes every time (it should not crash even without the plugin - it should handle it).

Even HTML5 video and mp3 audio will cause a crash every time (with tap to play enabled or disabled).

I am a blind user, and have both Talkback and Brailleback running on my Samsung Tab S 8.4 tablet. I have noticed frequent Brailleback crashes in Firefox when: 1. I'm asked if I want to save login information on a particular site. 2. I press Menu, for example, when attempting to share an article.

Is there anyway of minimizing this apparent instability with Brailleback? It doesn't seem to matter how many other apps are running, although I try and keep this number below 5.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Hello,

I have an ugly problem with firefox under android 4.4 on a Iconia A1-840 FHD (Intel): After downloading it, I can start the program, browse around, adapt the settings and so on, everything works fine. After I closed firefox once, I cannot restart it, however. I always only see a message ("Firefox wurde beendet", i.e. firefox was closed - I've got a german system) and nothing else. I do not use any add-ons at the moment; the problem is reproducible for firefox versions 34.0/35.0/36.0 (from f-droid).

Any ideas what I could do?

Thanks!

After many failed attempts with add-ons I come to this forum to ask this basic question. How can I sort bookmarks either alphabetically or manually? I don't understand how such a basic function can be missing from any browser????

Also there seems to be some problem in the Firefox "system" where it thinks I'm looking for desktop applications despite the fact that all of my queries are initiated through the Android browser.
