To recreate this bug, you need to be using mobile (on your phone), Firefox app, and set the browser to "request desktop site". The website appears fine on chrome or other mobile browsers, or in regular mobile mode (not desktop mode).

The theme on my site seems to break.

Hi.

I've tried searching for the answer to this problem for hours but everything's telling me how to make Firefox download things automatically but I want to stop it doing that.

I've always had my 'phone (Samsung S9+) set to ask me every time how I want to open files when I tap on them. However, this afternoon, when I tapped on a pdf link and it popped up to ask if I wanted to download the document or simply view it (in Google Viewer, I think it was), download was already highlighted and I accidentally (and very stupidly) tapped 'Always'.

Now, every time I tap on a pdf link in Firefox, my 'phone is automatically downloading the file, instead of offering me the option to simply view it without downloading it, which is what I want to do.

I've tried deleting cache files, uninstalling and reinstalling Acrobat Reader (in case it forced something to give me options again) and if I was using the Windows version of Firefox, the solution appears to be no more than a couple of clicks away. However, that doesn't seem to be the case in Firefox on my Android 'phone!

Please could someone help because I don't want to waste any more of my life searching for the solution to a single errant finger tap!

What is the purpose of Mozilla's crash reports? I filled out several of them without any action taken, or response. I found the error and fixed it myself.

Last night I downloaded the Firefox webbrowser for my Android phone. At first I loved it! It was fast, easy to maneuver, I liked all the extra features I didn't have on my other browsers.

Then all-of-a-sudden, when I tried to download a webpage as a PDF, Firefox just crashed and the Mozilla crash report came on! So I followed the directions and filled it out with as many details as I could, without guessing as to why this might have happened. However; this is only the beginning. Every time I tried to reopen Firefox it would crash and automatically bring up the Mozilla report page again. This repeated for hours, and every time I would send a detailed crash report to Mozilla. Finally, I got smart! I noticed a little window from the time it took to start the browser and when it actually crashed, so I took advantage of it. I opened Firefox and as soon as the menu bar appeared I clicked on the "Tabs" icon to bring up all the webpages that could be causing this problem. This allowed me to close the 10 other windows that I had no use for any more, and consequently, remedied the situation!

I want to access all my bookmarks that I have saved in Firefox for Android. I came upon this article that seems to suggest that there is a dedicated Bookmarks tab in FF for Android.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-delete-and-view-bookmarked-webpages-firefox-an#w_bookmarks-panel

But I don't see any such tabs in my android app. I want to backup all the bookmarks I have without using sync, because I want them backed up locally, not online.

Any help would be greatly appreciated on how to: 1. Get the bookmarks tab to show up. OR 2. Backup all bookmarks locally without using sync.

Using latest verison of Firefox for Android on my Oneplus 3T updated to latest version of Android available for it.

I pay for You Tube Red and MLB.com games, but I get ads which pop up and have nothing to do with either app. They interrupt games in the midst of play and/or in the midst of commeřcials which are part of the broadcast. The same on You Tube. A piece of music will be interrupted by a full screen ad which pops up during an opera or a song or a news program. I don't know where they come from.

If you press-hold a like and press the share symbol, the share memu icons aren't all the same size or missing the app names, etc. Using the ⋮ > Share menu show a different kind of menu and that one looks fine but only serves to share the currently displayed page.

It would look much better if those two interfaces were identical.

Many thanks and Best Regards.
