Hi guys, I'm using Firefox for the first time today on my smartphone. So far I have used Vivaldi.

Now I miss a possibility in Firefox to get directly to the start page with one click, and thus to get to the favourites (most used pages, collections, ...).

In Vivaldi there is a kind of home button in the middle. Is that also possible with Firefox? Or how do you do it?

Thank you!

We recently got a Canon wireless printer. The Canon ug-in has no settings of it's own. The instructions say the print option will appear under the "share" icon. It does, and works, in other apps. In Firefox, however, there are close to a dozen ways to share a page in Firefox but no way to print it. I just need to print the occasional return label or recipe but why doesn't it show up? Is it somewhere else? I've combed settings and add-ons and can't find an answer. This is the case on both my (admittedly aged) Samsung Galaxy 5 and several generations of Fire tablets. Advice appreciated.

I set Startpage as a custom search engine on Firefox for Android (https://www.startpage.com/do/dsearch?query=%s) and turned search suggestion on, but there aren't any search suggestions. If I use default search engines such as Google or Duckduckgo then the feature functions well; however, it doesn't work for custom search engines. How to fix the problem?

April 2021 FireFox 88.1.2 Android phone firefox options are not listed on menu or anywhere else I have looked. The add-on tab doesn't have a search for add-ons earlier versions always had the search for add-ons option, The print/save page as option can't be found anywhere, too much is hidden or not available on this new version.. Personally I really Hate this FireFox version and would rather have the less secure prior FireFox browser and have the simple to use previous FireFox version back. Maybe the options button is hidden and I can't find it but that makes no sense to hide it from users. Thanks any help would be appreciated

I am struggling to understand why the autofill feature never detects fields or makes suggestions on mobile. I often set down my phone and go to my computer when I encounter the need to input addresses or CC. I am very close to switching to Chrome after watching a friend have no problem with Chrome Android autofill.

"For those who use Firefox beta, Nightly and Adguard installed. Firefox does not accept Adguard user or system certificate. Trying to force Firefox to accept the certificate. To do this, look for the security.enterprise_roots.enabled flag in about: config and switch it to true. After in Adguard - Application settings, enable https filtering for Firefox. "

About two weeks ago, this item in the about: config settings in the nightly version ceased to be saved, I thought a bug, they will fix it ... I went to beta ... Today, this bug was apparently transferred to beta. In the same way, the item flies in the settings. Not sure after restart or over time.

But using a browser with an adguard certificate and the like is now problematic, re-register each time.

I won't tell you about other settings in about, but most likely they are also not saved by analogy after restarting.

I checked it on two smartphones.

Does anyone know what can be done, is there the same problem?

Can someone send a report to the developers? I kind of sent, but as we can see, there is no result. Maybe I wrote to them in the wrong place.

Hi I am facing a very strange problem. I cannot open the "about: config" page. The page comes out empty (img.1) Tried different search engines, different modes and security settings, nothing. Also, the viewing function in PC mode does not help. Please tell me what to do?

I searched a lot for information on the net, but did not find a single site that would talk about such a problem

There is also a question about "Secret Settings" that opens in the settings, the "About Firefox" tab, but the tab is empty. Maybe there is an opportunity to make the tab work?

P.S. To activate the "Secret Settings" tab, you need to repeatedly click on the Firefox icon in the "About Firefox" tab (Fig. 2), the browser will notify you that the "debug menu is enabled". After that, two additional tabs will appear in the settings menu (Fig. 3).

All add-ons were disabled in the "about: config" page and the page was added to the browser security "exceptions".

Thank you in advance for your cooperation))

Why is it not an option to turn it on permanently? Most of the web pages I visit cripple my experience because of that crippled mobile view forced by many sites and albo forced by Firefox for android. It's like children view, a view for a person that never used a smartphone, a person that is sluggish, with very thick fingers, that shouldn't maybe use smartphone at all. Desktop version is the best browser the is for PC with tons of addons and is very customizeable and somehow the mobile version tries hard to never be. To be honest I have enough of that mobile experience and probably will switch back to Opera
