My favorite add-ons don't work with the newer versions of firefox, and it seems now that we are limited to the RECOMMENDED add-ons only...!? Unfortunately I don't have the VERSION number that I need to go back to, because that phone had charging issues, and it's been replaced as well. I guess I could just start trying some older versions of firefox and see. Trial and error may take time, but it does work. If someone could point me in the right direction, that's probably all I need. Unless somehow we've been using the same add-ons as one another and I am not the only one experiencing this, and by some miracle I am lucky to have discovered someone knows exactly what I need to do.

My favorite add-ons aren't available with this newest version. I while ago I had prevented the update so that I could help using them. Now I've gotten a new ANDROID device and I don't know what version I need. I do know that I was able to look for add-ons unlike this version that appears to just show me some I can pick if I want, but there's no add-on browsing page likes there was.

I mean I guess it was most likely part of the developer teams goal of completely ruining Firefox mobile, but in case it wasn't. Why WHY in the name of all that is holy is this not a feature? If i want the desktop site, and set's it manually it usually loads just fine. But if i sneeze or think about changing tabs or clicking a link, it reverts to the crappy mobile version... I want it to default to the desktop site.....

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).

Firefox defaults to English (US) as input language with Swedish available to switch to.

I live in Sweden but i prefer to keep my phone in english, but my selected input language is Swedish qwerty, that works for everything except for firefox, even though the only input language in both the phone and in the browser is Swedish qwerty it still defaults to English (US).

Minor inconvenience but its getting quite frustrating, appreciate any help!

Kind regards Klintberg.

In Firefox <69 was a convenient behavior: when click on the address bar you see the speeddial with top sites. Now i can't see anything. In the menu i can just open long list of bookmarks, which are even not sorted.

How can I open the main page with pinned sites without closing the current tab and open a new one? Ridiculous.

Please return previous behavior back. I prefer to see a speed dial instead of a darkened website.

I didn't find a suggestion section, please move the post there.

Please, return icons for search engines as was in Firefox <69 and how it's implemented in Vivaldi. I really avoid to update Firefox to "big update" when you changed everything such as interface and addons and themes support. Use themes as earlier would be nice, but without normal search engines icons UI became unusable: list of engines takes more space, search suggestions in list take more space, I must click twice (type a request, click on search engine, click "search").

Hi. On Android Scroll hides address bar nicely But if the page has nothing to scroll, how do i hide the address bar, pkease? I use the Logitech Media Server and the material skin gives me a control page on Firefox that fits the page so there is nothing to scroll to get the address bar to hide. It wont kill me but it would look nicer if it disappeared. Same thing on Chrome works when I swipe as if I was scrolling. But I dont want to use Chrome! Cheers.

Here it is almost a year later ( I tried posting a link to the previous Mozilla support article from 11 months ago BUT it seems we can't even do that ) and the "coming back soon" answer still hasn't happened. I switched to Firefox more than two decades ago (maybe 3) because it was "by the people, for the people", because it was so much better than Internet Explorer and it was also safer. I have always preached the virtues of Firefox whenever I saw friends and relatives using something else BUT now I'm starting to wonder "is it time *I* move to something else? My question is, is the print function coming back or isn't it (OR is it time for a change)?

Исправьте ошибки. Браузером невозможно пользоваться по памяти вслепую. Нет ряда кнопок, нельзя подключить дополнение, нельзя убрать с главного экрана вкладки/закладки, при поиске необходимого посредством функции "найти на странице" нельзя переключиться между вариантами поискового результата, потому что отсутствуют кнопки стрелок. Уже 10 раз обновился и ничего не исправлено!!!!

I have installed Firefox 89.1.1 on Android 8.0.0 on my Samsung S7 (AT&T) and logged it into my mozilla account; it completed sync and my bookmarks are all now on the phone.

Here is the problem - I cannot find any way to ensure that sync ONLY happens when I manually press Sync now in Firefox's account settings window (I am working to be certain that mobile data usage is kept to an absolute minimum as I am on a very small allocation.)

I could not find any control that enables/disables auto sync in Firefox's settings on the device.

I could not find presence of Firefox in Android Settings -> Cloud and accounts -> Accounts (only entry there is the google account for the device and "Add account" which does not offer FIrefox as an option.)

My goal is to ensure that Firefox will not sync at any time unless I specifically request that as above.

Thank you for any advice!

Dave
