We cannot get a google account because our landline neither sends nor receives text messages. We are in process of setting up and testing a cell phone, and would like to load Firefox for Android as the browser. We cannot download from google play because google demands to send a text-message "verification" code. We note, thankfully, that Mozilla does not (stupidly) do likewise to set up a Firefox account.

In the recent update, there is a new feature which allowed people to view pdf directly in the browser rather than downloading it. Ever since this was implemented, I am not able to download any pdf, instead it keeps opening up the pdf in another tab which is not what I'm trying to do. Is there a way to fix this?

I installed Firefox APK on MI Box S 4K (offical github latest non-beta release on firefox support site). Everything is OK except it is installed as a system app, meaning that I can't add it to my favorites on the Mi Box welcome screen. So I have to go to parameters/app each time and run it :-( and it is very bad... I have installed other APKs (file system, player and so on) and none was installed as a system app they all was ready for favorites. Did I something wrong ? Wahat can I do to get it in my favorites ? Thank for your help, it is a bore to install it OK and be stuck like this !

Hi. I downloaded the latest issue of Firefox (104.0.1) to my mobile phone and since then I have been unable to connect to the internet via 4/5G - but it is OK using wifi. This is highly annoying when I need to connect whilst out and about. Weirdly, the calculator on the phone and Samsung Notes have also disappeared and I am unable to download from the Play Store! All the usual things like rebooting, cleaning caches etc do not work. Is it possible to roll back to an earlier version? Any ideas would be useful, given the lack of phone contact available, thanks

Android 13 / Firefox 111.1.0

Since a short while it seems that Firefox for Android opens pdf-files directly in the browser instead of offering the download option (as it used to be). My Samsung Tab6 Light shows the pdf in compressed fonts, thus it is mostly unreadable. How can I download the pdf instead of viewing it? Or: How can I download the pdf to save it on my device? If I tap the opened pdf a function 'Share' is offered, but then when I try to share via Email nothing is shared!??

Thank you kindly for any support in this. Ueli (Switzerland)

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/advisories/mfsa2022-09/

Looking at the security advisory above this was fixed in the releases just 3 days ago, but on Google Play FF beta has not been updated since 24 February. The website to download it on Mozilla.org only links to Google Play and not directly to any updated APKs. Firefox Stable for Android shows an update but not beta. How does FF Beta for Android handle zero day bugs like this without timely updates?

I am on Android Firefox and I accidentally chose "Always" on the pop-up asking where I want my downloaded items to go. I want to change it because where the files are now sent is inconvenient at best but i cannot find such an option to change my preference in either the Firefox settings bar nor my phone's device settings.

Mp4 video not showing up on downloads and not even the file is opening

So I was downloading a video from a website and when I download it it says "Mp4 (1)/(2)/(3)..."in the notification but when the download finishes I can't find the file in the "downloads"section and when I find the file in the file manager it shows the file but when I click to open it it plays for a second or two then closes automatically

It's not the website's or the files fault since I can download the same file on chrome

Since the new Chrome changes I have tried to switch from Chrome to Firefox but this download problem is the only thing that's bugging me and keeping me from using Firefox as my default browser

Please if anyone has a solution to my problem, it is greatly appreciated
