Was working before but after an update, I realized all my add-ons were gone... 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! Now, I cannot install any addon at all. I have the latest version from Google play (33.0) and I have an up-to-date HTC1 working on Android 4.4.2

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.

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?

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?

Is there a way to set "Google By Name" as the default search engine? I have tried changing keyword.URL but still it doesn't work.

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=,… (read more)

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?

Greetings and thank you for your time. I am so tired of every update changing how Firefox Android handles video and audio file types ~ MIMEs. I want a permanent setting to propting us , to ask us what I want to do when we click on a video or audio link. Maybe everyone else just wants to play it. But I don't and I'm sure I'm not alone. -_-

It would be wonderful if Firefox Android would have the same answers as Firefox for desktop specifically: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file#w_download-actions

Maybe I'm not searching correctly but I spent hours searching for a solution before posting this question. Also for previous FFA versions this question is always being asked after every update! WHEN will we as a community stop disabling the ability to control what we do with audio and video links! -_-

Please do not suggest a third-party plugin when this is an innate browser function!

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Why does FF for Android behave as though it has Silverlight installed?

When I log in to Outlook.com from Firefox for Android 53.0 on a Samsung Galaxy Tab4 running Android 4.4.2, it behaves as though Silverlight is installed.

By choosing Options / About (from Outlook.com), it tells me "The required version of Silverlight is installed".

If I log in to Outlook.com from my Apple iMac running Firefox 53.0.2, it does not have Silverlight installed, and I get a completely different look and feel for Outlook.com. I am assuming this is because FF no longer supports Silverlight plug-in after ver 52. So why is the Android version still behaving as though Silverlight is installed?

Is there an add-on to control how all website pages are displayed, in particular, the background colour and foreground text colour? You can do this easily with options->content on standard Firefox. Why not on FF for Mobile?
