Firefox add-ons doesn't recognize that it's being opened with Firefox.

The Firefox for Android add-ons section (yes, I made sure I was in the 'for Android' add-ons web address, as opposed to the 'desktop add-ons' web address) is saying "You'll need Firefox to use this extension" and not allowing me to install add-ons as the page employs a download firefox link that leads to an "Open" button in the Google Play Store, as I already have Firefox installed. I have tried many different add-ons to test if the issue is isolated to a single add-on and to test if it is an add-on compatibility issue, and it seems to be a consistant issue with all add-ons. Yes my underlying operating system (Android), and the Firefox for Android app are both up-to-date with the latest versions. I have located the Firefox support page labeled "Unable to install add-ons (extensions or themes)" and was able to work through the the list of potential issues and their solutions, to determine that every item on the list was either inapplicable or not the problem/solution. What am I missing?

For a few weeks I had the ability to pull to Refresh pages. Now for the last 48 hours the feature has disappeared. Is there any way to get it back? I didn't install any add-ons for that function to my knowledge.

Any progress with this?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1384776

I've encountered a problem where the defaults appear to have changed.

The ability to adjust margins would help triage the problem.

Evidentially, about:config isn't supported on Android either.

Thanks in advance.

I'm a physical keyboard user for Android and find it impossible to use Firefox, there doesn't seem to be any documentation on simple keyboard shortcuts for access the addressbar or menubar, getting to search in the page, or access fine-grained tools for navigation like there is on the desktop version.

Where are these features documented? The Android Talkback feature doesn't cut it for me.

Mozila VPN on Android sometimes appear to automatically turn itself off.

The explanation could be in your settings on Android: Go to settings, - select Apps, - - choose Mozilla VPN in the list, - - - go to Battery and select background Use,

go back to Mozilla VPN in the list, - - - go to Mobile Data, - - - - turn On "Allow Background Data Usage" - - - - turn On "Allow App while Data saver is On"

now your VPN shouldn't turn off any longer.

When restarting your phone the explanation why the Mozilla VPN is OFF is that to keep your security, the app requires re-authenticating with their servers (new encryption key).

Please, please, please... bring back the pre v. 100 ability to not remember History, and to completely Close Apps when closing Firefox!!! (& to really not remember history, or tabs)

High data use and freezing makes that I have to go into Settings/Apps/Firefox/Storage/cache and delete all, because Firefox froze at each use, as it was suddenly remembering every site opened, despite my checking the boxes not to remember upon closing. Many sites are opened accidentally, as Firefox is the default browser. Not really closing any site, so I run out of data room? (Deleting app data fixes the unresponsive app.)

I really miss the pre 100 versions, when Firefox was dependable, fast, and lean in data use. And tried all the other new versions, but they all have the same site cookies hoarding problem. That is a very data heavy way to be fast, that leads to a lot of crashes where internet infrastructure is minimal.

Thank you for reading. CB

Hi there

On some sites I use, their aps are next to useless as are their mobile sites. I want to be able to access the REAL websites but when I change the URL (e.g. change m.twitch.tv to just twitch.tv) it simply redirects to the mobile site again. How can I force it to show me the full web page instead please ?

Many thanks

Zoe

Microphone for Android mobile Firefox doesn't work: have checked and under "Settings, then "search

This is for my Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G: today is Monday, 2022.07. 25.1401.CDT I cannot get the microphone on android mobile Firefox[Version is labelled "Direfox Daylight, version 102.2.1 (Build # 2015891003]. The fix of turning "Show Voice Search" on under 'Search', under "Settings" has no impact: in fact I found "Show Voice Search" was already checked, and the microphone DOES NOT WORK?

I have Grammarly kb set, and wondered if other kb options as alternates but not active, like Gboard, the Samsung, Google or speech to text options, or known add-ons, etc. can be blocking my microphone? With this android mobile Firefox there is no option of entering "about..... Microphone" or other command line options do not work entered on this version of Firefox, what to do? I want the microphone "on" by default if possible as I was just dxed with Adult-onset or Type II diabetes, doing 5 finger sticks each day for my blood glucose: both fingers n thumbs every 2 days: my fingertips are so sort, even using a stylus, my kb entries have errors 50% of my attempts.

What is "Firefox Daylight"? A version for Android?

Are there other modifyiers for Firefox, like addons, or other Firefox modifying supplements like "site to ask permission for microphone" that are known to interfere or block microphone activity?

I have installed and utilize two different browsers for Android phones: Firefox and Opera. When reading an article I was sent part of in my email, I opened the entire article so I could read the article in it's entirety. You choose to open the article in my Opera browser when you could have detected that I had Firefox, a browser you support, and opened it in the Firefox browser. Then we wouldn't have had to stop and go back and copy the article's URL and open my Firefox browser myself. I don't have either of my browsers set as "default" for exactly this reason; so articles can open their publication in the browser of their choice. By the way, the URL that I was opening was: https://member.carepayment.com/Errors/UnsupportedBrowser. This is the first time I have ever been told what browser I could use to view a personal account. Next time, detect that there's a supported browser and open the one you like and support. My Firefox browser could have been opened by you, but not receiving any instructions otherwise, it opened my Opera browser and I couldn't see my personal account of a healthcare payment company.
