Hi, how can I open a local html file with firefox 86 on android 9? It's like firefox no longer registers itself as a valid program/association to open html files.

What I've tried so far: 1) If I type file:/// in the URL bar, nothing happens. It works on Opera. 2) If I go to a file manager, select an html file, and click "Open with", firefox doesn't show up; Chrome and Opera do. 3) If I go to the android settings > applications > firefox > associations, firefox shows no associated file types at all.

The HTML language isn't only used on the Internet, it's also used for local documents, please allow us to use firefox to view our local html files.

Automatically received the latest major firefox update on my Samsung galaxy tab s3. I don't know what Mozilla did to this release but I can't find any functions to do basic browser controls like going back to the previous page, going to the next page, or refreshing a page. I really love firefox but it's kind of unusable without these controls. I'm going to have to use chrome which I'd prefer not to do until this is fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have created some firefox collections but have difficulty getting to the collections screen. On a collections help page it says "In the Collections section on the Home screen" but my android phone does not show a collections section, just icons. What is the problem? I also cannot figure out how to find the version of firefox that is installed, if that may be the issue.

I need to do local admin work on the router in my motorhome. Not surpisingly, its admin is on 192.168.0.1:80. Everything I type gets sent to Google search instead. How can I just enter a IP address without going to a Internet search engine. Just tell me it's easy in the latest Firefox for Android and I'll finally update LOL. Currently on Firefox 68.11.0 on Samsung Android 9

Hello,

I've noticed for a couple of weeks now that audio streaming halted when the lock screen kicks in, regardless of whether I've blanked the screen myself (hardware button) or not on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A8. I was running Firefox for Android v98.2.0 (2022 Mar 13 on Android v9 and with the following add-ons:

- uBlock Origin - Privacy Badger - HTTPS Everywhere - Video Background Play Fix

This is behavior I haven't seen before, and I've been streaming on this device with Firefox and other apps for a couple of years now. To determine whether it's Firefox or Android itself at fault, I streamed under a different app (RadioGarden). I do not get the cut-outs with the latter; it carries on happily until I terminate the app.

I have upgraded to v98.3.0 and will test again with that. Searching on the Support forum, the last reports I could find of anything like this dated from Aug 2020 or so and quite a few versions back. Is this something that's cropped up again? Is anyone else seeing anything like this?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Firefox for Android 7.0, Firefox 94.1.2 and Logins and Password

"Autofill in other Apps" selection never appears in the menu for the above set up but does appear in an Android 8.1 version with the same Firefox version of 94.1.2.

The 7.0 Android version never offers a valid saved login for external apps.

The 8.1 Android version will pop up a text box below the User ID entry that says "Unlock Firefox" but selecting the text box does nothing. The same text box also appears below the password box after manually entering the User ID and selecting CONTINUE to get to the Password entry box (but only in 8.1) If you Long Press the User ID or Password box in 8.1 it offers a Paste selection but it's not a UID or Password, just the last Cut item.

In Android 10.0 Long Press on the UID or Password box will bring up an "Autofill" box but it does nothing and does not offer a UID or Password anywhere for external apps.

Something is clearly broken in External App password from Firefox for Android. All the available settings are as they should be set. The Password fill works as it should from the Web Page of the same App entity, say Amazon for example.

So.....whose problem is this?

Hi, I wish to use firefox to read my html files stored on the sd card.

  1. If I try to open it with a file browser such MIUI file browser, X-plore or Total Commander, Firefox doesn't shows up in the options (I have Chrome, MIUI browser and others too).
  2. If I try to navigate to it with file:///...myfile.html in the address bar (actually copy-pasting the url from one of the file browsers, no chanche to remember it otherways) it launches a serach on duckduckgo instead of opening the file itself.

I have a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 with MIUI 11.0.2, firefox86.1.1, and the archive permission already set for firefox. My wish is to enable the first option, of course, the second would be just a work around. Thank you

Whenever i have to input passwords, the dashlane app overlay appears for a split second but then goes away and it's almost impossible to use. Please don't tell me about bitwarden, I don't want to use it and that's not a solution. I also have no way of importing passwords into the browser or exporting them. For now I'll just stick with chrome but it hurts inside because i wish Firefox was better.

I'm using Firefox 93 on Macbook air and Firefox 93.2 on Android 11 (Samsung S10). I’ve synced all passwords and logins and can view them on both devices. ‘Autofill in Firefox’ and ‘Autofill in other apps’ are both on. But, when logging in to apps on the Samsung, autofill doesn’t work. Even if I fill in my email address, there is no password suggestion. Instead, a small dropdown message appears: ‘unlock Firefox’. It isn’t active, and doesn’t open anything when I tap on it. Result: I have to go looking for the passwords and fill them in manually. I hope there’s a solution. Thanks for your help
