A couple of weeks ago Firefox stopped downloading my daily paper. Today, I uninstalled Firefox & reinstalled it from the Google play store. It still won't d/l . The circles go around as if d/l'ing but it doesn't doit. I am using my Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. I prefer using the Firefox browser rather than Chrome because Firefox is faster and is my default browser. Can anyone help? Thank you.

Purchased a new economy 10" android tablet. PlayStore says Firefox (V81) is "not compatible with this device". All other apps I've tried to install work perfectly. Disaster!!! I've been with FireFox since it was a cub <G>

Maybe an earlier release?

Suddenly Firefox updated on my Android phone and now none of my addons work, including my password manager and cookie manager. When I open the support link it opens to Firefox for Android beta Solutions. Addons are one of my main reason for using Firefox. Every article I've seen says there is no way to downgrade. If that's true I'll be switching to another browser that supports Chrome extensions, whether this version (79.0.4 (Build #2015757667)) is actually beta or not. Forced, irreversible updates with no warning that break critical functions. This is why I don't like the whole app store system, and again if true, this is totally inexcusable. I know this free software is a labor of love on the part of the developers, but I don't think I can deal with this update. A bunch of patronizing articles explaning why "we know what's best" is no better than Google or Microsoft. Anyway this was a major inconvenience coming without even a warning.

How do l get rid of pocket from Firefox, samsung s20+ (just purchased, Firefox was ported from samsung s8).

I tried config.sys but there was no line for 'browser:pocket.'

If l can't get rid of pocket from Firefox l will get rid of firefox itself, after more than 20 years.

Thanks for the help.

I don't want that search in the address bar. I want it turned off. It must have updated, because I got it turned off not long ago, and the settings I changed are the same as I left them. What new things do I have to change?

This is the old instruction, that worked until now. "If you mean the new popup/enlargement, type about:config and then 'browser.urlbar.update'. Turn all 4 to false or try each on their own as i'm not sure what specifically they do, but all 4 works for me."

The previous answers (ex: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1185193) all say to go to 'settings > general > home > top sites'. There is no 'top sites' sub area. The sections are as follows:

'Set a Homepage': 'about:home' Also use for new tabs (off) Panels (unclickable label) Add-ons (unclickable label) Content updates: Wi-Fi


Please let me know how I can turn off the suggestions from Pocket and Highlighted pages. I still want it to show my Top Pages that I visit. I do not care to see any recommendations. I use other services to discover content and certainly don't need it every time I try to open a new web browser window.

As of 10-30-2019, whenever I try to visit a web site, Firefox for Android instead downloads an html file and sometimes gives me a message that it was unable to download a file. I'll then see an html file with an apparently random 8-character long name in my downloads.

Hi folks New Firefox user here so please bear with me if it is a silly question. I imported my logins and passwords from Chrome and this works as follows on Firefox in my Windows 10 pc: if I have multiple user ids for a website, I click on the user id field and the multiple user ids are shown. Select one, and it auto-fills the passord. Fine. On Android, clicking on the user id field does nothing. I have checked that all the users ids and passwords are synched. Single user websites work fine. Please advise - I like Firefox so far but this element is unsatisfactory. Thanks.

Android App was freezing and crashing on Home Depot page.

I disconnected the synched phone, cleared storage and cache, and uninstalled the app.

I then reinstalled the app, and reconnected to my account. Synch was successful.

HOWEVER, while the old synched device does not show in the device list and the new one does, the old device's History still shows in the History tab, including the aforementioned, evil Home Depot page that froze FF.

When I access the Home Depot page, the app still freezes.

On my desktop, the old device and its history do not show, and the Home Depot page does not freeze or crash FF.

Help!

Hi,

Is there a possibility to use an Android home screen shortcut to start a specific website in Firefox' private mode?

This would make it possible to use weeronline.nl (one of many sites) that forces the user to accept ALL cookies before being able to visit the site.

Thank you,

On my laptop I am able to sync my firefox account. I was also able to do so on my prior android phone and on my prior work laptop. I just purchased a new android phone (Pixel 2 XL) and I am unable to "sign in to continue to Firefox Sync". It says I am using an incorrect password, but I am using the same password that I use the first time I sync on my laptop after every restart. I have the same problem with an iPad which I had not previously tried to sync. What is happening?

I do not wish to reset my password because I read that it will cause me to loose saved passwords. Also, it is currently working on two devices without any reset. Is there more than one password associated with my firefox account? Could this somehow be related to years back when there were two different methods to sync firefox? What can I do to get this to work without loosing data (such as saved passwords)?
