A recent update (v102) to Firefox for Android has broken "search browsing history". Before, I was able to type "tw" and see a list of ~20 Twitter results from my browsing history, arranged by frequency of visit; now, it only shows one. Is this new behaviour a deliberate change (if so, it's really bad compared to the ease of usability of the feature previously - please revert it!) or a bug?

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?

This is for my Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G: today is Monday, 2022.07. 25.1401.CDT I cannot get the microphone on android mobile Firefox[Version is labelled "Direfox Daylight, version 102.2.1 (Build # 2015891003]. The fix of turning "Show Voice Search" on under 'Search', under "Settings" has no impact: in fact I found "Show Voice Search" was already checked, and the microphone DOES NOT WORK?

I have Grammarly kb set, and wondered if other kb options as alternates but not active, like Gboard, the Samsung, Google or speech to text options, or known add-ons, etc. can be blocking my microphone? With this android mobile Firefox there is no option of entering "about..... Microphone" or other command line options do not work entered on this version of Firefox, what to do? I want the microphone "on" by default if possible as I was just dxed with Adult-onset or Type II diabetes, doing 5 finger sticks each day for my blood glucose: both fingers n thumbs every 2 days: my fingertips are so sort, even using a stylus, my kb entries have errors 50% of my attempts.

What is "Firefox Daylight"? A version for Android?

Are there other modifyiers for Firefox, like addons, or other Firefox modifying supplements like "site to ask permission for microphone" that are known to interfere or block microphone activity?

Please, please, please... bring back the pre v. 100 ability to not remember History, and to completely Close Apps when closing Firefox!!! (& to really not remember history, or tabs)

High data use and freezing makes that I have to go into Settings/Apps/Firefox/Storage/cache and delete all, because Firefox froze at each use, as it was suddenly remembering every site opened, despite my checking the boxes not to remember upon closing. Many sites are opened accidentally, as Firefox is the default browser. Not really closing any site, so I run out of data room? (Deleting app data fixes the unresponsive app.)

I really miss the pre 100 versions, when Firefox was dependable, fast, and lean in data use. And tried all the other new versions, but they all have the same site cookies hoarding problem. That is a very data heavy way to be fast, that leads to a lot of crashes where internet infrastructure is minimal.

Thank you for reading. CB

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.

The widget mic makes a very annoying sound every time that you tap it to do a search. It is tied to the ringer volume apparently. Is this a Firefox feature that can be turned off? Or is this tied to Android only and you have zero control?

If you have control over it, please disable it, it's pointless and serves no purpose. When you tap the microphone a big huge screen comes up letting you know to speak.

When I have "Open links in apps" turned on, for some reason all links to xda-developers.com URLs are directed to the Nextcloud app — which obviously doesn't know what to do with them.

I enjoy the "open in app" feature but this is frustrating. I checked in the app information settings that the Nextcloud app doesn't open any URLs by default, and certainly not specific to xda-dev...?

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

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.
