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.

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.

What determines the default language for Firefox? I downloaded from the English site but when I launch it, the settings and some of the search results are in Chinese.

I'm using a XiaoMi phone purchased in HK running Miui with English as the default language. Only Firefox shows up in Chinese. Any suggestions?

(Please don't direct me to the FAQ that gives the solution in English. If the menus were in English I wouldn't be here. :) Thanks

I want to remove or set my home screen to something else other than the Firefox default.

I've managed to remove everything from the default home screen, which is a start. But I don't want a home screen at all.

Ideally, Firefox would just resume as it was the previous time it opened. That's how it worked until a recent update.

Downloads Tab or option removed & "Save as PDF" also Removed in the Recent Firefox android Update! Removing Downloads option is not good by any mean, because how am i suppose to resume the paused file or a failed file due to network issue...? second point is about removing the " Save as PDF" Option where i was able to download a webpage as PDF. That was an awesome feature, which is now unavailable.

So, what are you going to do about this..?
