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 !

I can't download anything through the browser. Images, PDF's, even the extensions recommended by Firefox. Whenever I try to download something I get an indication that Firefox is trying to download it. Then it always fails and tells me to try again. And then it fails again.

I downloaded chrome to be able to download things. That works. But running two separate browsers to get the basic features of one working browser is an annoying fix.

Hello,

As the title reads, I'm trying to keep my browser settings including all the tweaks I have painstakingly made to "about:config" as well as the extensions.

I have done this before on a windows machine and it's quite straight forward in just having to copy the profile folder to the firefox installation in the appdata directory on another machine.

I have gained root access on both devices and a root permissioned file explorer to copy the profile to an SD card that I can trasnfer between the phones. Once the profile folder is copied to the data/data/org.mozilla.firefox/files/mozilla directory and the fresh installation of firefox executed on the new device, firefox instantly crashes.

What am I missing?

Any and all input is welcome and appreciated.

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.

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 :) ?

Yesterday, I did a system reset on my LG tablet (Android 5.0.2). When I tried to reinstall Firefox from the Google A Store, I was told that the download would not work on my system. Why would a system reset make Firefox uninstallable, can I work around the problem, and when can I expect to safely reinstall Firefox?
