Hello everybody,

Firefox v122 is running on an Android 8 tablet.

1. Are the "about:config" configuration settings still supposed inaccessible for this version?

2. Will these "about:config" configuration settings eventually become available again?

3. Is the interim solution still to install the Nightly version?

Thank you.

This concerns the "about:config" setting, namely "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground", which was available for configuration in earlier versions of Firefox Mobile for Android.

The process is probably best described here, but the solution is out of reach:

Open Links in the Background with Firefox for Android

Please, advise me whether it is indeed still possible to achieve the desired result, and how to do so?

Thank you.

Background:

I regularly work with old modem/router at my work sites. I usually use Firefox on PC to access the management page. Sometimes, I like to check by the sites with only my phones, to mess with the configs in the modem.

I cannot access the local IP address (https://192.168.10.1/) because of the TLS requirement is too high (SSL/TLS 1.3). I need to lower the TLS version inabout:config to 1.1. I couldn't access the about:config on Firefox Android.

I have tapped 5 times on the Firefox logo to enable to Debug page, but changing TLS requirement is NOT there.

Question: Where is the setting for security.tls.version.min in Firefox Android 120.0?

I have used Firefox on many systems - MacOS, Linux, Winblows and mainly Android Cellphone.

"about:config" on a Cellphone has never worked, never worked consistently, or mainly been confused with Desktop Firefox :P

Hello?!? The future is mobile not stationary desktops  :P But I digress. Please dont misunderstand me - I love FF - but when I want "about:config" on A Cellphone - I WANT IT to actually work on a freaking cellphone  :P

Is the software config too much for International Mozilla to understand? Or has Mozilla had way to much input from everyone on the planet thus watering down an otherwise great browser?

Kind of rhetorical - I know it will never be fixed in favor of locking in a dieing desktop setup  :P

Hello,

This recent update in how PDFs are handled is really poor. The responses to the effects of the update seem really arrogant.

No, your PDF viewer is not better than Adobe reader. Even if it was, I want the choice to download directly to my preferred app, even if you think it sucks. I thought Mozilla was all about choice? That's why I thought I donated monthly. I want control over the software I use. It's been a pattern with Mozilla, for example, removing about:config for people who don't want dev builds.

Just like desktop Firefox, I want to choose how to handle files and choose how my software works:

View in FF Download to disk Open in an App

No, i don't want to go the FF version first.

It's seems odd that I'm even explaining this. Please revert this change, it's bad for so many reasons. Please also consider why the culture at Mozilla is giving users less control, not more.

Howdy folks, hope all is well your way...

When I download a file, a notification pops up when the download is complete. I find this quite annoying, especially when downloading file in a bit of rapid succession.

Is there some way to turn this off on FF mobile?

I tried... about:config > browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel on the nightly build, but after having created the option, it doesn't seem to work.

I would be forever indebted to any suggestions y'all can provide.

Thanks.

I read the strings of comments regarding about:config not working and presenting a blank page. I have the same issue.

I have been a Firefox user for decades, preferring Firefox over all other browsers. However, without the ability to customize Firefox we, the loyal, may be forced to use another browser. Also, no customization is only contribution to other browser's owners/developers efforts to eliminate Firefox.

Is there a solution to fixing current version or Firefox, about:config in development or already available?

Thank you.

  1. 1- last week Firefox was blocking me from accessing certain sites that I always go to.
  1. 2- I cannot access about:config. I've tried signed in and out as well as with different search engines and I just get a blank screen. Help?
  1. 3- is it normal for FF to have permission to download files without notifying? I checked the permission list and seemed like there is alot of dangerous and malicious permission allowed as system permissions. Please help?
  1. 4- when I log in and check devices, 2 new logins show up. One says my phone's model # and the second one says logged into Firefox browser or something like that. Is it normal to have duplicates like that when I only use my Android phone?
  1. 5- I've tried and cannot find any way to login to my network or make any network changes? Please help?

I commented on play store and was told to send my question on here so they could be investigated more. Thank you for your help.

About:config will not work for me I get either a blank screen or it just goes back to prev screen. Also when I check devices logged in, I will log out of everything, then only log in to Mozilla support and it showed 3 logins in the picture I've attached. 1 for moz support, 1 for Firefox 109 android 12, and 1 for my phone build wingtech. Which I also don't understand because I own a metro PCs service carrier and the actual phone is a TMobile revvl 6 pro 5g. I also noticed that somehow my phone had a custom build version ROM on it and I never downloaded that to my phone so everything should be totally stock. So I don't understand. Can anyone help?
