So, I apprehend how this works presently (or until recently) with Firefox for Android solid cut back to approximately a dozen extensions (provide or take) and first of all broader extension get right of entry to being to be had in forks like Iceraven and, ultimately, if you understand the name of the game code and have a Mozilla account, Firefox Nightly and Firefox Beta.

But, i have examine that this is converting to in which in preference to the prevailing "integrated" extension Firefox for Android extension library that become heavily limited on Firefox solid, it'll be replaced with the aid of an AMO library open to submissions in the same way pre-version sixty nine Firefox for Android, and present day Firefox for home windows are, with Android variations of extension on the identical AMO pages as their desktop opposite numbers, for the ones computer developers who additionally need an Android model.

I have a few questions, which maybe other human beings have too, inclusive of:

- Which model is this anticipated to fully land in nightly and beta? Approximate date?

- Which version is this expect to fully land in strong? Approximate date?

- Will all present day extensions with new extension versions stick round in every user's installations with a continuing upgrade, or will human beings should reinstall extensions manually after changeover?

- If the extensions deliver over automatically, what happens to people upgrading from, say, simply for instance, modern-day Android uBlock beginning to new extension fashion uBlock foundation past the obvious? Will the settings and customizations to such things as filters and filter listing be ported over much like a ordinary software program improve, or does the exchange in codecs make that a non-starter and revert to a popular new installation uBO? I ask because if extension settings do not bring over, humans should recognise to be able to backup what they could (and, if a backup mechanism isn't always supplied by means of an extension, the give up user could optionally take screenshots or notes before the current model goes away to get it returned doing things the manner the cease person would really like after) and reimport it to the new edition, if they care about such matters enough to do it.

- What occurs to the modern Firefox for Android extensions, both those covered on solid and the numerous more that are not, but that humans access thru forks and non-solid versions of Firefox? Is this strictly a one system at a time component, in which the handiest system disappears whilst solid is going live with support for the new style extensions, or might both upload-on systems exist side via aspect for some time thereafter?

OVER THREE YEARS PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DEMANDING THIS. When I tap a link in an app, I want it to open IN FIREFOX. Not some custom tab. Not some special pseudo in-app environment. IN. FIREFOX. EVERY OTHER browser on Android can do this. Don't give me some BS answer about removing Firefox as my default browser, either. That causes it to either open in the app I'm using, or the phone's built-in browser, NEITHER OF WHICH ARE SECURE. If you really care about security, like you're trying to sell us you are, you will fix this yesterday.

Seriously, this is 2024 not 2004. Fuck your message board help system that offers no help to a problem of lost data. No way to get live help. Then, logging in to ask for help forces you through all these pages that route you away from where you're trying to get help.

Nothing about this process is use intuitive and it's certainly not helpful.

I regret coming back to Firefox. Fuck you for losing my data you pos devs.

I just discovered that the android phone (Samsung A71) I am currently using was in fact still using Lockwise for Auto Fill.

How do I force this old copy of Lockwise to do a final sync before I uninstall it. I do know that at least some of the passwords stored in it are up to date. At this time, I DO NOT have access to a PC. I DO have access to a more recent android phone (Samsung A53 5G) that DOES NOT have Lockwise installed and is using the most up-to-date version of FireFox for Android.

Also is firefox typed out in lowercase or one of these ways: "Firefox" or "FireFox"? I have a habit of camelcasing some computer terms left over from my days as a UNIX Administrator (AT&T Bell Labs versions and not any BSD versions) and want to know the proper way to type it (from the horse's mouth so to speak).

I've used Tor Browser (Firefox kernel), and the "add-ons" in that browser say "add-ons may damage the browser". Does Firefox have any safety measures for add-ons (such as running them in quarantine so that they don't damage the browser itself or other add-ons).

How to add speed dials in homepage and URL bar on Firefox Android?

I access some sites instantly like alternative search engines, social media, news sites, messages and others so need them on homepage of browser (also new tab like Chrome otherwise speed dials won't work).

But in Firefox Android and Chromebooks, I can't find a way to have done sites as speed dials like Edge browser, Samsung browser, cococ browser, soul browser, mask browser, kiwi browser, Brave browser, Vivaldi browser, and Opera browsers among others. Only Firefox is light years backward despite being veteran.

Humbly requesting this feature urgently as usability is zero when using Firefox browsers and I have to go back to one of the browsers mentioned in that case.

Hello,

It seems you can sync a lot of things between devices.

However, COLLECTIONS can not be synced? One of the most interesting newer features on Firefox. Collections are way more easy to use than the old bookmarks and a real game changer on another Browser.

Will Mozilla be able to get this working? I really want to keep using Firefox for its excellent privacy features and independence!

Thanks for your help and feedback!
