I have FF installed on my Android, but can only get to it by tapping SETTINGS/APPS/Firefox. I am unable to create an icon or 'shortcut' to reside on the Android's home screen where it would be most convenient. Has anyone experienced issues of this nature or have any suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong?

Any and all input is welcome and appreciated.

Thanks for your help in advance...

I bought a new phone from AT&T and I wanted to use Firefox and get away from chrome and when they used smart transfer to transfer all my data from the old phone to the new phone no open tabs or passwords came with it and now I can't figure out how to import them. I've searched on Google and tried to follow the steps but I don't have the options that they say to use. I have tried installing Firefox on my old phone and importing them from chrome to Firefox on my old phone and then to the new phone and that doesn't work. I managed to export the passwords from Chrome on my old phone to Chrome on my new phone but I can't get the open tabs to and I can't transfer my passwords from chrome on my new phone to Firefox on my new phone. Please, can anybody help me?

no android browser provides an function to export bookmarks to a file.

why would that be? and don't give me the polite "this is not possible" response.

firefox could win users by fixing this one single, inexplicable flaw.

it's trivial. just do it.

I have a problem with the firefox browser on my phone (Oneplus 7T). When I download a file, and then want to open it, the message "Could not open file" is displayed on my screen. For example, I tried to download word documents and pdf files, and it wasn't possible to open any of these two types.

I already activated the external download manager but it didn't change anything. I put firefox as my default browser but nothing changed.

I really want to switch from chrome to firefox but this problem is the main reason I don't...


Anyone can help :) ?

I read in another post that it is impossible to undo the action, but is there anywhere the files are stored after firefox removed them? I use Huawei file manager to look for the files, and sadly they are gone. The pictures are also missing from the gallery, is there anything I can do to retrieve them? It is 2 years of items that are suddenly gone from my mobile, it is practically impossible for me to retrieve them otherwise.

Moving forward, can I revoke permission for firebox to delete items? Because normally on desktop, deleting downloads does not remove files...

I was wondering if it was possible for the current version of Firefox browser Android app to be installed to external storage, i.e. an installed SD card, rather than internal storage on the phone. Some of us are using Android-Go with a large SD card and it would be useful for the app to be smart enough to detect that there is external storage, and automatically install to that location instead, just like most of the apps I have already installed that are smart enough to already do this automatically. Thanks for any input.

Is there some option of changing download folder from internal storage to external storage when downloading under Firefox for Android!! I wonder why the Firefox developers did not provide under android the facility to change download folder in "Settings" or "Tools“ from internal storage to change it to external SD Card storage. Will be very useful, and I will be very thankful to you! Otherwise, the browser is excellent, very quick and magnificent

Hello! For a long time, I used the Download Star add-on in the Firefox browser on Android. It was the only extension that allowed you to download videos from any site. After updating the browser on the phone to version 80, this add-on disappeared and can no longer be installed. For the sake of this extension, I removed version 80 and reverted to version 68. Tell me how can I install Download Star back?
