I'm using Firefox latest version 128.0, device language was set to Japanese but I set Firefox 's language to English (United Kingdom) or English US. However, if I press home button (the Android button) to go back to home screen (the Android main home screen), or rotaing firefox window, firefox will ignore set language (english) and now set to follow device language (Japanese) however, if you go to menu -> settings, language (言語 gengo, language) it was checked to english uk. I dont know what happened?

I use Better Open With on Android to have a choice of browser when opening links from apps. This has never affected how Firefox operates until the recent update.

Now, FF handles all links in any page as external and asks if I want to leave FF (and present the Better Open With options).

This behavior is not seen in any other browsers I have installed (FF Focus, Chrome, Kiwi, Opera). These browsers handle links on open pages correctly and open internally while also recognizing apps that are installed (Home Depot, etc).

Please fix Firefox to use itself for internally opened links!

LINK Doesnt redirect to the application!

I am using the Firefox Nightly version and when I click on links related to Instagram, YouTube or other applications, it takes me directly to the application.

But when I click on the my course link, it directs me directly to Microsoft's own site to download the application. (Microsoft Teams)

I tried this in other browsers, but they did not have such a problem. That's why I downloaded and tried other Firefox versions, but they also have the same problem...

I also disabled the extensions but the problem is the same.

So the problem is, while Firefox Nightly opens other sites in the application, it does not open it in the application when i click on this course link. What is the source of the problem?

Thanks, best regards.

Add a deep link shortcut to my Android home screen when "Add to home screen" menu item is missing

I want to add a shortcut to my Android home screen which deep links to a page within a site I use. However, the "Add to home screen" menu item I'm accustomed to using for this is missing.

It turns out that if the website in question is configured to be used as a "progressive web app", then "Add to home screen" is replaced by an "Install" menu item. For my situation, this is unhelpful, because the resulting home screen icon only links to the website's home page, not to the carefully selected URL that I want to deep link to.

SOLUTION

This can be worked around by turning on airplane mode first, then visiting the desired URL. The page, obviously, will not be found, but this causes the "Add to home screen" item to be reinstated. Use it, then turn off airplane mode again. Voilà!

Hello!

Firefox on Android won't display pop-ups. I've checked privacy setting but there's no checkbox for a popup blocker. Also tried about:config but didn't find any setting to change. Any ideas on how to be sure Firefox is comfigured to allow popups? I participate on a Zoom webinar and can't start Zoom through Firefox so have to use Chrome.

Thanks!

Please allow force-enabling of the "Open in App" button on all domains.

The cause of my asking this is that YouTube no longer has this option. Presumably because they explicitly disallowed this. I want my end-user control over this back. To note, reddit still has this option.

So my request is to add a toggle to force this button to appear on all domains, if at all possible.

Thank You!

Hi,

I cannot figure out how to get Firefox to browse to my local website IMPI server maintenance website on my LAN which uses http protocol. I've tried Firefox troubleshoot mode and also setting the https redirect off - which has zero effect. Any ideas would be welcome because I'm locked out of my server IMPI now.

Please give me solution. Thanks

Actually I'm using firefox from so long and I love to use firefox and I feel safe using firefox because it is open source and firefox first priority is privacy but from few weeks I'm observing that duckduckgo app tracking blocks so many tracking attempts from firefox. It's kind of weird. When ever I open firefox, duckduckgo start blocking so many tracking attempts from firefox and as a proof I take screenshots as well. I'm attaching screenshots with this message. Still I love using firefox but also this scared me. Hope I'll get a better explanation.

Dear Administrator,

I am mobile developer, and I have created an app, that uses firebase dynamic links. With those dynamic links the users are able to authenticate into the app, via a link, that is sent to their emails. Uppon clicking on this email link, a browser should open the link, but should immidiately redirect the user and open the application, if the app has been installed.

On android this functionality works with Chrome, Opera, Duckduckgo, Edge and Brave. (So far what I have tested worked). But with firefox it just opens the google play webpage. It was a fresh installed firefox, as of now the latest version. Do you have any insight why it is not working in your browser?

Sincerely, Dezső Csete
