Most mobile sites are of a lower quality than their desktop counterparts. Less features and constant requests to download unnecessary apps are annoying and waste screen space. How do I force the Firefox app to only open desktop sites?

Because when I do the toggle bar it only works for one tab and when I open links to new tabs, it switches them back to the mobile version. Which for some sites that prevents me from being able to read or access things because the mobile version switches to a page that is just a prompt to download the app and clicking the desktop toggle doesn't bring me back to the page I wanted.

I saw there used to be an addon that would have been useful. It's dead now. Is there any useful replacement add on? Any convenient workarounds?

I have set the autoplay block audio and video setting in site permissions, but videos are still loading up and moving, albeit silently. This is not much better. Still annoying and wasting bandwidth. How do I fully disable these videos from automatically doing anything at all?

how does search engine order work?

i have some custom search engines on Firefox Android 89 (settings > search > add search engine > other).

i noticed that Firefox seems to be ordering the search engines in an arbitrary order.

when i first add the searches, they appear in the order that they are added.

but after the phone is restarted (note: not the browser, the phone), the search engines are ordered in a different way.

this same order shows up in both the settings search engine list (settings > search) and also the search engine selection list (url bar > search engine)

i have observed: - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine name - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine url (with or without protocol prefix) - it is not sorted by order added - it is deterministic: if i delete an engine and re-add it, even if i name it something different, after a phone restart it'll still return to the same position it was before

so my questions are: 1. how exactly does Firefox sort the search engines? 2. how do i set a custom order for the search engines?

thanks!

In previous version of Firefox (the one with regular tabbed browsing for normal and private browsing) if use https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=0919848012345, I used to get a button continue chat and clicking on it used to take me to WhatsApp directly. Not the button directing me to an WhatsApp page asks me install :(. Also selecting the URL used to give me WhatsApp app icon along with cut copy paste options, which also used to direct me to WhatsApp. Now that icon is missing. The same is working on chrome on the same mobile. Firefox version : 89.1.1 (Build #2015812947) AC: 75.0.22, 5204f4025 GV: 89.0-20210527174632 AS: 74.0.1

Attaching pics : 1. Firefox showing message that WhatsApp isn't installed 2.selecting URL doesn't show WhatsApp option 5. On Chrome, Clicking on chat button directs me to WhatsApp. 3,4. On different mobile with same version of Firefox, Selecting URL shows option to open and clicking on it gives option of whatsapp

"Tab Closed, Undo" Button Directly Over The Ability To Close The Next Tab. ALSO STILL CAN'T REORDER TABS IN TAB LIST.

There is a design flaw in a recent update of firefox for android. When I am trying to close tabs quickly from the bottom, the "tab closed, undo" button is now positioned directly over the X mark on the next tab to close the next one and I have to wait until it goes away to close the next tab. This is extremely frustrating and I am hoping this is fixed soon. It is taking 3 times as long to close my tabs in the order I would like to. The button just needs to be very slightly thinner and the X mark for the next tab will not be blocked anymore.

I ALSO WANT TO ADD THAT I STILL CANNOT REORDER MY TABS ON ANDROID AND IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE. PLEASE FIX!!!!

My Amazon account keeps sending me emails that say my password is attempting to be changed. For the device ID that is given it says this device ip address Mozilla Firefox. For location it says Georgia USA.

 The issue with this is that I am not in GA, I live in and am sitting in the state of Kentucky. Several hundred miles from GA. So if there is anything about this that can be done I really appreciate it.

Dearest creators, Firefox for Android have a bothering issue. In any Android phone while listening directly from SoundCloud site not from app, while only in background the sound of the music is clipped and sometimes interrupted. I only use Firefox and also as a music player and it's perfect, but lately I have found that SoundCloud have problems with audio rendering while (in my case only) Firefox is in background. Also for this site cannot be applied any sound equalizer compared to any other YT or online radio. Please fix this issue... You're the best!
