I tried to reinstall Bluhell but the install button is disable with a message saying that this addon is not available for Firefox on Android??? WTF, I had it before and a bunch of others!

Hello,

I have my Samsung S4 I9505 set to English language. A few days ago Firefox started using Chinese. I can't understand anything at all, so that I could not even use the settings menu if I knew where it is.

Can someone please tell me how I can set it back to English please? Nothing else on the phone changed language, but Firebox alone.

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.

After updating Firefox, the touch and hold menu for text on websites contains the options Copy, Select all, and Bing search (see attached). Pressing the three dots adds the options Firefox Search and Share. I would like to have the Firefox Search option shown in the first menu since the Bing search takes me to another app (and I have no interest in using Bing as a search engine anyway). How do I achieve this?

Before the Daylight update I was able to disable loading of all images from the advanced settings options in the settings.

That's gone now. That feature isn't in any of the major competitors either. Vivaldi, Edge, Brave, Chrome. No setting for that. I'm very frustrated with that. What now?

I'll be a lone voice on some help forum where my request for the return of this simple feature will be ignored for years?

This feature going to come back anytime soon?

On my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 using JB 4.1.2, when I tap on the menu button on the lower left hand corner, the menu that comes up won't display anything beyond "Settings", i.e., I can't see the addons, in particular the 'Clean & Quit' add-on button which is the one I most need. Rebooting the phone often fixes the problem, but only temporarily. Any ideas?

I have changed (had to add the string so maybe the preference has changed?) keyword.URL to http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=, but when I try to enter "youtube", it still tries to load http://youtube/, not http://youtube.com. Whereas, on my desktop firefox entering youtube would take me to youtube.

Is it possible to get this working?
