Understanding the release calendar -- when does addon support go away?

Hi! I understand that Add-On support for Firefox for Android is going away soon, per https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2020/02/11/faq-for-extension-support-in-new-firefox-for-android/ and similar pages, but I cannot find a clear timeline.

I'm worried that one day I will take a Firefox update on my Android device and suddenly the addons I rely on (e.g. Tampermonkey) will stop working with no warning and I'll have no good recourse.

How do I prevent that from happening?

How do I find out when Firefox Android will drop add-on support (I guess this is like asking when the current Firefox Preview will become the release channel?)?

I have not been able to find an equivalent of https://wiki.mozilla.org/Release_Management/Calendar for Firefox for Android.

Thanks!

Hi. I recently upgraded my to a samsung galaxy A10, moved everything from the old phone, no problem, Firefox as default browser was working, then after a recent update I can't get internet access, I get this message:-

unexpected response from server firefox doesn't know how to communicate with the server. 1 check to make sure your system has the personal security manager installed 2 this might be due to a non-standard configuration on the server

what does that mean, and how can i retrieve the situation, and why did it happen in the first place? simple english please, i'm confused enough that i lost the connection in the first place thanks

I signed up for Smashwords (that's not the problem) and the last time I uploaded an eBook from it to Google Play Books, I hit "always" instead of "just once", so now, everything goes to Play Books even if I don't want it to! Is there a way to change this without ending up with fifteen copies of something? Thanks!

As I can download the images, before it was enough to press and hold on the image and it gave me the option to download it, but now I have to enter the website and do it from there that's pretty tedious

PDF on Firefox Android auto download and wont stop downdloading

Any PDF download through Firefox Android, will not STOP DOWNLOADING after its initiated. Only 'Force Stop' of Firefox app makes it stop. It does continue to use data.

Since all PDFs are automatically downloaded, this is a huge problem. Often a weblink doesnt indicate its for a pdf so Im not able to avoid most downloads.

Unlike Firefox for Desktop/laptop, Firefox for Android doesnt have settings to deal with downloads, to request 'always ask' before a download is initiated.

About:Config hasnt been helpful either. It remains downloading even if i quit firefox.

-I cant stop or cancell download in drop down on cell through download manager.

-Force stopping Download Manager in App settings wont stop download.

-Cutting off mobile data or wifi wont stop download. -Only force stop of Firefox App in phone settings is able to clear download from continuing.

This situation has made it clear, that desktop/laptop Firefox app has several choices in thier settings to mitigate this possibility, such as "Always ask" before downloading.

Why are there no features customising download in Firefox for Android settings?

Are there other ways to get this to stop than repeatedly killing the Firefox Android App in phone app settings?

Why doesnt Firefox for Android show on web page that a link is a PDF?

This problem has existed for many months through last 3 updates.

I use huawei mate 20 pro. After I download some apks, I click it in the download page, it didn't work. Even when I press the apk for a while then click the open command, it didn't work either. I am certain the firefox has the permission to install apks on the phone, checked. what can I do to make the download apks usable?
