Using "private firefox", I was unable to sign into gmail. I got a google search screen with no option to sign into gmail. The google screen seemed to be in a larger font and simplified compared to the usual screen. I was using an andriod phone for the task. Thanks if you are able to help. p.s. I have lots of settings throughout apps/ systym set ti hogh levels of privacy and do not intend to change that, sync etc.Firefix63

Seee above. Is this issue fixable? , operator error ( I don't think so.) App compatability? An evil lurker followin/mirroring? Something else? I don't know, but suspect it may be tied somehow to "AI".

I want to NOT open links in external apps, so I set the option "Open links in apps" to "Never", however Firefox keeps asking of I want to open the link in another app, so there is no difference with "ask before opening" option". Is there any way to not open links in apps without Firefox asking for confirmation?

Maybe I am blind and wise developers already have this option but I doubt it!! and my obvious question is how in the world I have to sync all my collection list of web pages ???? and pinned sites ??? why this is so hard for a dev brain to understand that if you made a option for storing weblinks so should be a way of saving all this !!!! VERY OBVIOUS THING !!but in 2023 we still have problems losing bookmarks and other data !!! because of horible app design (not UI) !! im in the process in moving to new phone and I'm stuck because I don't see a way of saving all my old phone to ne without deleting lot of info or with lot of manual work to copy at least something and this is 2023 !!!

I have always been the type of person to max out my tabs on web browsers and try to remember what we browser I used to refer to on different situations. Once I looked into Firefox, I was extremely impressed and excited to use the collection options to become better organized with different websites! I originally made a list of collections on my tablet and was under the impression that when I went to share the collection with from my tablet to my phone (both newer Samsung models) that it would share the whole collection as is to my phone and that I could create new collections on my phone and share back with my tablet. I don't always have both on hand but would like to use them interchangeably. I know I can sync the tabs which are open which is a nice feature and I have since added my collections from my tablet to my phone.

I think it would be an amazing option to be able to customize the collections - organize alphabetically, color control for collections that are similar, "parent collections" or a sub collection option from your main collection to just allow better organization. I do like the collection feature but I am not able to organize it and now I'm in a similar (though much better) scenario as I was when I had a bunch of tabs open from different search engines. Any possible update or options would be much appreciated! Also, I am very new with using Firefox in recent times so there may be something I am missing but from what I found I don't see any options as to what I'm referring to. Any help is also much appreciated!!

There is a problem with the browser. Initially, it looked like firefox was no longer the default browser.

Then I noticed that hyperlinks and buttons stopped working in Firefox itself. And if the link can be followed by a long tap (then the context menu appears), then clicking on the buttons is a problem: it is impossible to log in, send a message, etc.

Also, the buttons in the main menu stopped working. I wanted to see the saved firefox account password (to sync passwords), but the "passwords" page just wouldn't open. So - with almost all browser settings...

What did you do... 1. Checked the phone with antivirus (Kaspersky and Comodo). Phone is clean. 2. Performed a full firefox reset. Now the browser is clean. Links are working. Settings are available.

Can't set firefox as default browser. The browser is selected in the settings. But following any link from any application (for example, from Telegram or Viber) does not open in the browser.

Need help...

I can not load Websites after first starting FF or when I open a link from Google news/home. Then the loading bar just goes to 1/4 and nothing happens. I have to restart the app to have it load Websites again.

Funny enough - this website here where I am posting this issue loads, but not the other tabs in FF currently.
