Hello,

My name is Nyayesh Abdollahi and I have a suggestion for Firefox; I've earlier been unable to access an account I created because the e-mail connected to it had been deleten.

This seems to me a proper weakness in Firefox and perhaps should be ameliorated...?

I just wanted to let you know this because I do think it's the best browser around.

If the problem has already been adressed, my apologies.

Kind regards, Nyayesh Abdollahi

please i am Begging you let me put the forward/backward buttons on the search bar why do i have to open a separate menu to do this

ability to Choose what gestures do (for example, swiping on the search bar in either direction to navigate history rather than tabs) would also be acceptable, if slightly less convenient (as i suspect something like that would only allow moving forward/back one page at a time, as opposed to simply press-and-holding to pull up all your options to jump to)

i am losing my mind a little bit here i don't understand why it has to be so roundabout

Any progress with this?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1384776

I've encountered a problem where the defaults appear to have changed.

The ability to adjust margins would help triage the problem.

Evidentially, about:config isn't supported on Android either.

Thanks in advance.

Is there a way to force "dark mode" for websites on mobile WITHOUT using an extension like Dark Reader?

I am comparing this to coming from Brave, where I am using their "experimental" Night Mode settings (which works great). For the desktop browser, I've gone to Manage Colors and swapped text/background white/black to make most websites appear as if they have a dark mode, but that option doesn't seem to exist on mobile.

I've attached 4 images that show the differences across the two browsers on mobile. Even Google's own Dark Theme doesn't seem accessible through whatever method FireFox uses, so I can't even use that dark theme without an extension at the moment.

If this is not currently possible, I'm hoping it's planned for future implementation. I can't suggest it either since the feature suggestion page appears to be down at the moment (being reworked?).

Firefox add-ons doesn't recognize that it's being opened with Firefox.

The Firefox for Android add-ons section (yes, I made sure I was in the 'for Android' add-ons web address, as opposed to the 'desktop add-ons' web address) is saying "You'll need Firefox to use this extension" and not allowing me to install add-ons as the page employs a download firefox link that leads to an "Open" button in the Google Play Store, as I already have Firefox installed. I have tried many different add-ons to test if the issue is isolated to a single add-on and to test if it is an add-on compatibility issue, and it seems to be a consistant issue with all add-ons. Yes my underlying operating system (Android), and the Firefox for Android app are both up-to-date with the latest versions. I have located the Firefox support page labeled "Unable to install add-ons (extensions or themes)" and was able to work through the the list of potential issues and their solutions, to determine that every item on the list was either inapplicable or not the problem/solution. What am I missing?

I am using the video background fix addon but whenever i minimize firefox, it will play the current video untill the end and will not autoplay the next one. I have to bring forefox to the screen again and then it starts the video.

On my much older Android device, i am using the same setup and have no problem with autoplaying the next video, even when firefox is minimized. Any suggestions?

I'm constantly annoyed by the history tab on my phone. When I visit several Wikipedia pages one after the other for example, they're grouped together in a folder that's named after whatever first search query I made. I don't see any way to turn this off.

Additionally, I'd also like to be able to delete forwarding pages from my history from my phone. I do this on my PC which I have synced by entering "." into the history search bar and manually deleting them but otherwise I'm stuck using the search function on my phone even for pages I visited recently, which is often full of forwarding pages I haven't gotten around to deleting yet.

About:config simply shows me a blank screen.

I need to customize a few settings and I presently cannot. This question marks this as answered but the answer is talking about a solution to the specific reason they were trying to access about:config, not why they cannot access it. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1373286

Others say to use the nightly build, which I don't want. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1302626

What's the deal? I've spent an hour or so now looking this up and haven't found anything.
