What's the issue here, if anybody could help I'd be much obliged. Thank you.

I don't want to be completely negative about Firefox for Android 79, but it doesn't work for me. Extensions that I relied on are no longer supported, and the new functionality doesn't make up for that.

Is there anywhere I can download the .apk for a previous version and install that?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-web-page-shortcuts-your-home-screen indicates that to add a bookmark to my Android home screen, I should navigate to the desired website, open the three dot menu and click on "Add to Home screen." I have successfully done this in the past. But now the option is missing from the menu. I am using Firefox Daylight V 91.1.0. The option still shows up and works in my Andriod Chrome, but not in my Android Firefox Thank you in advance for your ideas.

I'm really upset! The new v79 has half the features and sync wasn't running: always shows "last sync on 1970" and didn't let me select what to sync. I cleared the cache, not solved... I cleared all my data, reconfigured, but still no sync! So I removed the app and manually installed the old one. Guess what? It still doesn't sync!!! Now I'm left with the Firefox I know and love but I can't use it because I have NO credentials and no bookmarks... I would like to kick someone...

Hello, I have been using Firefox for so long, and it's one of my favorite web browser on Windows as well as on Android. Firefox update for Android has become frustrating for many people including me, as most of the features aren't available in this new FF. One of them is about:config system settings, where i use to change some usefull features by going through that option. Sadly, this isn't available in the new update as of now. So, I would like to request you that please add this option as soon as possible in the coming updates. Another request would be, to be able to change the dns within the browser for using secure dns like DoH. As this option is available in desktop browser, i will be happy to get this option even on Android as well. Thank you.....

First and foremost I am trying to find the homepage. I have read articles on how to set the homepage but the images don't look like my Android app. I will attach screenshots I have my settings and nowhere does it say anything about home. Any ideas of how to set a homepage so that I will have one place to go to when I first start when I open Firefox that would be awesome cuz right now I don't like the way it set up. it takes me to my account page and I can't do anything.

My next question is tabs. I don't see anything about opening a new tab or setting a new tab so any information on that would be most appreciative.

Thanks for anyone who will assist.

Hi,

I have installed Firefox on my kids Android tablets and the tabs bar is missing and I am not able to turn it on. Without the tabs bar they cannot easily switch between tabs, they also don't immediately see what pages they have open - without clicking the tabs button. The tablets are 10" and running Android 10 and the latest Firefox.

On the previous Firefox browser I had on my Android phone, I set it to close all my tabs when I closed the browser. I've just updated to the new Firefox on Android and I can't find the option to do this. I have to manually close all the tabs every time I close the browser. Surely they haven't given us less options and features in the new version?!

Pressing quit in the app closes the tabs but it doesn't also close the app down on my phone.
