After many failed attempts with add-ons I come to this forum to ask this basic question. How can I sort bookmarks either alphabetically or manually? I don't understand how such a basic function can be missing from any browser????

Also there seems to be some problem in the Firefox "system" where it thinks I'm looking for desktop applications despite the fact that all of my queries are initiated through the Android browser.

I am constantly getting signed out of all my logins simultaneously. When I try to log back in I get error messages saying "sorry you'll have to log in first" or "sorry we couldn't find that, try searching for something else." The only way I can fix it is by restarting my phone. It's driving me insane, I have cookies enabled so this shouldn't be happening. Please help

Pocket button disappeared in the three-dots menu. It is replaced by a Bluetooth button.

Now, I searched for solutions obviously. However, the about:config page has not one listing with the word 'pocket' in it, so I can't just reactivate it.

I'm would like this function back and I was wondering whether one of you could help me!

External links overriding current tabs instead of opening a new tab

Hello,

I've recently switched to Firefox mobile on my Android (Samsung Galaxy 7) because the Samsung browser had a few issues. However, I'm having a few issues with tabs. There seems to be no setting for forcing an external link (from another app) to open in a new tab in Firefox. Instead, it overrides a current tab. Most people keep tabs open for later use, so I can't understand why Firefox would be designed to override that behavior. It's like going back in time before tabbed browsing became commonplace. I've tried editing about: config, but the setting "browser.link.open_external" is already set to 3, which as far as I can tell is supposed to open links in a new tab (why is there no manual/database somewhere with all the current about:config settings listed? How do people memorize what each number means? Why is this not more user-friendly?)

As you might be able to tell, I'm pretty frustrated as this is a very minor thing that should be easy to adjust in normal everyday settings. Everyone opens links in a new tab these days. It's much easier to close an extra tab than it is to find a site you were saving for later that got overridden by clicking a link.

Thanks for any help.

I'm not able to see stocks charts on google search and Google Finance is not opening when I use a Android device with Firefox. I tried with the latest versions of Firefox Focus, Nightly and Firefox standard. If I choose the desktop version, Google Finance works but it is with a very awful layout. On my Android, with Brave and Chrome the Google Finance site also opens. With my Mac, Firefox opens the Google Finance site. Any suggestions? Thanks

When I am watching youtube videos, when I enter fullscreen mode by clicking bottom right 'Fullscreen' icon on the video, I get fullscreen of course, but only once. What I mean? once I enter fullscreen mode of youtube video, if I leave that fullscreen mode e. g. to change video, I can No Longer enter fullscreen mode no matter if i click the icon for it. I need to reshresh the page.

If I was to go out of fullscreen mode to read the title or other information about the video, I can no longer go to fullscreen mode again until I refresh/reload the page. You know what I am saying, in this particular case the video will start from scratch etc.

Fix please.

tel: link href in HTML "anchor" tag fails when web-page is accessed from local file system via file:// protocol

I'm using Firefox v68.7.0 on Android 9.0 and my Samsung A10e. I've crafted a web-page that includes the following HTML snippet:

<a href="tel:2125551212">Phone Jim</a>

The page is located on the local Android file system, accessed via a URL of the type "file://...". Clicking on the displayed hyperlink fails to load the phone's dialer with the listed number.

This works correctly on Chrome v81.0.4044.117, Edge v45.03.2.4955, and Opera v57.2.2830.52651 on the same Android phone.

Thanks in advance for any clarity you can provide.
