Hello!

I'm currently using Firefox nightly for Android, simply for the reason of installing custom add-ons, rather than having to choose from the given list.

I've followed this guide so far: [https://www.ghacks.net/2020/10/01/you-can-now-install-any-add-on-in-fi...]

And I've added the 3 extensions I need at, by signing in with this very Firefox account: [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../collections/]

My problem is when I attempt to add a custom Add-on collection, it asks me: Collection owner (User ID) What is my User ID? How do I add my custom collection so I can use my own add-ons? Apologies in advance if this is a silly question and I'm missing something obvious.

I'm not sure why Firefox still bothers to call tabs, "tabs". A tab was originally called that because of its similarity to a filing cabinet's physical tabs where you can see the tab markers and use your thumb to quickly select one. As far as I can see Firefox for Android no longer has tabs. There's no tab bar (and even the URL bar is auto-hidden) and to see the 'tabs' you have to drag down, then select a button and then flip your brain from expecting to see a horizontal row of tabs to a vertical list of them. Similarly, to create a new tab used to involve taping on a plus sign in the same place, right next to the other tabs in the bar. Now, to make a new one you have to redirect your attention from the top of the screen (where tabs have always beenl to a plus sign down the bottom. This smacks of just changing things for the hell of it.

So.... The big ask..... is there any way to get back to the system and layout I'm used to and that I still use without a moment's though when I use Chrome? (Which I'd still rather not do all the time...). I'd like my tabs back please.

I have a Samsung A2 and I'm having trouble adding sites to my home screen. I am able to add YouTube.com to the home screen by going to YouTube.com, clicking the menu, then clicking Add to Home screen. I then have a saved Firefox launcher on my home screen that when clicked goes directly to YouTube.com.

However when I try to add other sites there is no option to add to the home screeen. I'm trying at the moment with Lichess.org and there's no Add to Home screen option in the Menu.

I found this post (see attached) https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1267519 which suggests going into about:config to change a setting, but when I enter about:config into the browser I just get a black screen.

These are the addresses of the two sites. http://m.youtube.com/# and https://lichess.org/. Is it not working because the Lichess site isn't a m-dot site?

What is going on here and how can I fix it?

Been using Nightly for a while and have always had "Close Tabs Manually" set. Noticed this morning that many tabs were missing and others were 'inactive' and soon to be closed.

The setting is still "manual", and changing it to monthly/back to manual still shows the 'inactive tabs' panel.

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

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

go back to Mozzilla 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 explaination why the Mozilla VPN is OFF is that to keep your security, the app requires re-authenticating with their servers (new encryption key).
