Any progress with this?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1384776

I've encountered a problem where the defaults appear to have changed.

The ability to adjust margins would help triage the problem.

Evidentially, about:config isn't supported on Android either.

Thanks in advance.

More a Concern or Desire than a question.

Very common these days (2023) are device types - PCs, Cell Phones, etc. Firefox browser is available to (my main interest) Windows PCs and Android Cell Phone. Then their OS, versions, etc. All have many differences so establishing these differences in the beginning of questios and explainations are critical to the assumptions going forward in support.

The moz://a Support (most support forums) overlook this vital step before delving down into the myriad of complex and different option settings and discussions. I'm no professional but am confident that instruction details are likely very specific to the different device/OS, versions, Platforms, etc. That said I am very frustrated to the lack of a definite starting point for research as most if not all that information is useless to ones specific needs.

Hope you can take this to Hart and consider adjusting the Top Level Titles and/or providing Option Filters to better guide users to their specific needs.

A little different but related, in the old DOS days the c:\\ path format was a very useful practice to provide an orientation of where you are logically. It even accommodates a backward or higher level logic projection up into the internet or devices. I'm only amateur in the full understanding but am fairly certain of its existence. These no nonsense logical establishments go a long way in understanding & conveying complex theory. STANDARDS.

Thank you. Rod

I have noticed that mobile browsers (including Firefox Mobile) don't seem to give you the option to clear cookies and other website data on close while preserving website info/cookies of sites you want to keep logged into.

Is this a feature that will eventually be implemented in Firefox? Or is there some kind of limitation in Android/iOS that makes implementing this not possible or tricky?

Hello,

My name is Nyayesh Abdollahi and I have a suggestion for Firefox; I've earlier been unable to access an account I created because the e-mail connected to it had been deleten.

This seems to me a proper weakness in Firefox and perhaps should be ameliorated...?

I just wanted to let you know this because I do think it's the best browser around.

If the problem has already been adressed, my apologies.

Kind regards, Nyayesh Abdollahi

When searching in hebrew, the language appears on the left as well, and it is really hard to type or edit.

The new on-device translation has been integrated into Firefox starting from version 118. I can't find any information about when (or if) this is coming to the Android (and, while we're at it, iOS) version?

For many in my friends and family circle, this is _the_ feature that keeps them on Chrome.

I recently logged into the WIFI of my TAFE, which uses a proxy, only to find that Firefox would not work. 1 hour of crazed searching later I have found that you pretty much *cannot use a proxy with Firefox on Android*.

Sure technically you can download the FoxyProxy add-on or go to about:config and change the settings there (but not on the stable build which y'know most people use) but the fact that the stock, stable install has *zero* support for proxies, which are extremely common on school/work networks, is absolutely unacceptable. This is *basic* functionality that was reported as missing as far back as 10 years ago and *nothing* has been done to fix this.

The worst part is Mozilla are clearly aware of this. An issue was opened on github and was only closed to be moved over to bugzilla where it remains open. And for some reason on bugzilla the severity is marked as N/A even though this literally means you cannot use Firefox Android on any network with a proxy

I apologize for the harsh and direct tone but I am truly astonished that no one seems to think that this is as severe as it actually is. I use Firefox because I love open source software and I hate the idea of google having a monopoly over browsers. Things like this where basic features are missing (resulting in the browser being completely unusable on certain networks) make me reconsider if this browser is even worth using. And please don't say that FoxyProxy solves all of this because the fact that basic functionality is locked behind a third party extension is unacceptable.

I'm constantly annoyed by the history tab on my phone. When I visit several Wikipedia pages one after the other for example, they're grouped together in a folder that's named after whatever first search query I made. I don't see any way to turn this off.

Additionally, I'd also like to be able to delete forwarding pages from my history from my phone. I do this on my PC which I have synced by entering "." into the history search bar and manually deleting them but otherwise I'm stuck using the search function on my phone even for pages I visited recently, which is often full of forwarding pages I haven't gotten around to deleting yet.

Hi there! I'm kind of clueless with this problem of mine. Is there any way to set a homepage on android firefox, where I hit the home button on the left top corner and it is just going to take me to eg. google.ie? Same like on the dektop one? Also when i hit a link the mobile browser just keeps opening a new tab anytime I click on one of them? Hope it is understandable, english isn't my first language. thanks in advance for any help.

Hi, this is an idea: To be able to sort the order of tabs.

Often I'll be browsing for something one day, then move on to something else and continue browsing/researching the first thing again later or the next day. Suddenly I have lots of tabs on differrent subjects open and no way to organize the order of them, with using bookmarks/collections, which would be timeconsuming. Being able to reordering them would be really helpful, and also make the „swipe between tabs“ a lot more useful, without having to scroll back and forth through tabs within different subjects.

And especially on my tablet, where I have lots of tabs open when researching this would be great. :)

Hope you'll consider this.

Hello,

I am wondering if Firefox will help users auto opt out of cookies. By this I mean will Firefox implement a feature that the user can turn on in the settings that automatically deleted cookies that are not needed even if they select that they want to opt in or check the cookies that they are opting into and accidentally opt into ones they don't need to. I believe this could be achieved with machine learning that looks at the cookies that are required by websites and the cookies that are more than what are required. Is Mozilla thinking about adding this future or will it in the future? I believe it could change the industry.

When I select a text from any website there is no option to search privately (unless you're already in private mode). Having Firefox Focus installed makes the option appear but it opens the link there aka in a different app, it would be a lot better if you need have to install another app and yes I know i can just do it manually by copying the text, switch to private mode, pasting and then finally searching. It would save you 3 taps. (The images are with the Firefox Focus app uninstalled, I can provide more with it being installed and how it works.)
