Hi,

I just transferred from a Pixel 4a to a pixel 7. Previously, everything on the ad blocking front worked well. But since the transfer, any ad blocking extension seems not to be working in any shape or form.

Hello,

I am using Firefox Nightly for Android, and it now auto zooms when I enter text. When this happens, there is no way to zoom out without closing the keyboard and then zooming out. Once the keyboard opens again, it zooms in, making maneuverability on web pages impossible. It also has broken a few web pages such as www.bpm-lux.com.

Even when activating the "Make all websites gesture-able" there is no way to zoom back out.

There used to be a setting or access to the configuration for Firefox, but no more.

Is there a way to stop this auto zooming when entering text?

By default, pages are in mobile view mode. The desktop mode button doesn't apply to all pages and it is not permanent.

Can you please move this to settings with a permanent desktop mode on/off switch that applies to ALL & future pages?

I used to be able to change add-on settings from the hamburger menu. Specifically no-script what scripts could run. Now when I select add-ons from the menu it brings me to a list of installed addons but does not allow any add-on settings to be set. I have not yet found another way and has rendered my mobile Firefox useless. What is the new way to adjust add-on settings?

Hello, How is it possible to run different instances of Firefox on Windows and on Android? I would like to have for the same user e.g., Firefox_1 with one set of open tabs and Firefox_2 with a different set of open tabs. Is this possible, and if so, how to do it on Windows and how on Android? Or, is there another way of selecting in Firefox between two (or more) windows with different sets of open tabs? Thanks and regards, Marcel

I use Firefox for Android on my tablet (8" Samsung Galaxy tab S). It's really annoying that I can't add lots more of my synchronised desktop bookmarks to the homepage (which is mostly blank space, since I don't find all the suggestions, etc. useful). It would be great to give users more scope to customise this feature.
