I am using Firefox nightly on Android. About two weeks ago I noticed that my toolbar got moved to the bottom after some update, while address bar is still at the top. I tried looking for it in settings but couldn't find anything about toolbar, that's weird since I was able to customize it a few years ago when I installed Firefox for the first time. So I looked it up on the internet and they say that it's in Settings/Customize/Toolbar, but in my browser settings instead of Toolbar there is Address bar settings. Has toolbar's settings been moved somewhere else? It looks like in previous versions it was under Customize section.

I need to reach the about:config menu but firefox takes me to a search menu on the engine I chose (duckduckgo). It provides lots of nice info but not how to reach this feature.

I am using Chrome OS so possibly that is the issue.

Thanks!

Dear Mozilla Firefox Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to request the addition of the Vencord extension to the Firefox Add-ons repository.

Vencord is a highly useful tool that enhances user productivity by allowing users to customize Discord. Many users, including myself, rely on its functionalities for theming and plugins. Having it available in the official Firefox Add-ons repository would significantly improve accessibility and convenience for Firefox users. Right now, I am using Tampermonkey to use Vencord, but having an official add-on would be much more convenient.

I kindly request you to consider this addition. If there is any further information or testing required, please let me know, and I would be happy to assist.

First Of All, Thank you for such a wonderful Browser. I have been using Firefox Mobile for a while now. Everything is perfect for my needs. Except for one thing.

Less Number Of Search Suggestions.

Firefox Mobile shows less number of search suggestions. So, I tried to check in Firefox Focus. I used Google as my Only Search Engine in both Firefox Mobile and Firefox Focus. I have enabled every search suggestions settings in both. While searching for anything in search bar, Firefox Mobile shows only 3 suggestions for my search whereas Firefox Focus shows 10 suggestions. Even Firefox Beta and Firefox Nightly shows 3 Suggestions. This is stopping me from using Firefox Mobile. I can't switch to Firefox Focus as there is no support for Extensions.

If it's a mistake from my side, Please, Suggest Me, what do I need to do to get Firefox Focus like Search Suggestions in Firefox Mobile.

If it's an issue in Firefox Mobile, Please, Fix it as soon as possible.

I want Firefox Focus like Search Suggestions on Firefox Mobile. I wish to Donate to Firefox Mobile and continue my journey with it. Please, Help Me With This.

Your Humbly Firefox Lover.

Subsequent name changes for home screen shortcuts on Android

While adding a website shortcut to my home screen on Android, I changed the name (to be shown on the home screen). I later decided to use a slightly different name, so I removed the shortcut and added it again, entering the new name. Nevertheless, the shortcut is now always added with the original custom name. This is also the case when I leave the name unchanged in a later attempt. I get the same results with multiple sites. I get the same results after closing Firefox, restarting my phone and emptying the Firefox cache. Even thought the shortcut on the home screen is probably not actually a bookmark, I tried bookmarking the site, and changing the name of the existing bookmark - with the same results. Is there a way I can choose a different name for the home screen shortcut, or this a bug? Background: I am now manually adding shortcuts to my home screen after getting a new phone (Pixel 7a). I had have mostly the same shortcuts on my previous phone (Pixel 3a XL). The shortcuts were kind-of(!) transferred to my new phone: they appear in the same home screen folders as on my old phone, but gray. When I try to open them, I get the message: "Couldn't restore shortcut because app doesn't backup and restore". Is there a way to transfer (all) home screen shortcuts? If not, please consider adding support for backup or automatic migration.

Problem: keyboard covers text area in chat and scroll does not function. In a chat with customer service usually, the text I am writing does not appear, it is behind the keyboard and scroll is frozen. I have to close the keyboard to see the text, also scroll works. Then I click on my partially filled text box, keyboard comes back covering it, no scroll. Repeat. Pixel 6, FF for Android, T-mo, Ad-Guard only addon, everything updated, see attached.

I am writing to request assistance with an issue I am encountering on the latest version of the Firefox browser for Android. My goal is to open specified pages in the same tab using Intent from a third-party custom application. However, I have observed that different URLs open in separate tabs, contrary to my expectations.  Current Implementation:  Here is the code snippet I am currently using: java: Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW); intent.setData(uri); intent.putExtra(Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID, packageName); startActivity(intent); Expected Behavior:  I expect different URLs to open in the same tab without opening new tabs. This functionality is crucial for my application.  Issue Background:  I have researched similar issues and found that users have had comparable needs using Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID. Unfortunately, it appears that Firefox has not fully addressed this functionality. The EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID is a feature that modern browsers should ideally support to enhance user experience and maintain continuity within a single tab.  References:  I have referred to the following discussions and issues for additional context:  Mozilla Support Forum: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1364869 GitHub Issue: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/23329 Request:  I kindly request that the Firefox team consider adapting this functionality officially or provide an alternative solution if it has already been addressed. Any relevant documentation or guidance on achieving this behavior would be highly appreciated.  Thank you for your time and assistance.

I'm on version 112.2.0 and I cannot disable the "feature" that haphazardly shoves my history in to groups that have nothing to do with each other but Firefox THINKS are related. The support post I've found discussing this promised there'd be a "disable search groups" option in version 97, but I'm on version 112.2.0, which (for those of you counting) is 5 mainline iterations afterwards. How do I fix this? It's constantly breaking my History.

I use Firefox across all my devises, Desktop, Tablet & phone. I added Dashlane password manager as an addon to my desktop, years ago, at Firefox/Mozilla recommendation and love it. Recently I upgraded my Dashlane account to be able to sync across all my devises only to find I cannot ad Dashlane as an addon on Android devices. I read there is an upgrade in the works for Addons for Firefox on Android... 1. Will this allow me to add Dashlane? 2. If so when and how? 3. If not why, when it was recommended by you in the first place? As a long term user of Firefox/Mozilla I have often recommended using it, to many of my friends, but if the Addons are limited on Android it no longer seems to be a good recommendation. Even though I can still use Dashlane with a work around on Android I love the convenience of having the password manager as Addon on the Browser. If you have no plans to add Dashlane soon I will have to think about switching to a browser that does. 4. What are your plans going forward? Robert Beale
