I hit something in error and now my search results are dark. Only the google screen as attached. if I go to the links on the search page they will be light. I read someone say that by touching the top of the screen can do that?. I may have done I was half asleep.

There is no about:config

The theme is light in settings/ customise. Latest FF in android 12 on an Honor x6

Also it is only FF, Brave shows search results as light.

I hate that dark look and want the ligh one back

Home Button? Why? It is useless because I cannot set up my home page. I removed Firefox Android from my phone now because of this. Also the new Firefox 100 is too cluttered with too many useless features. Am thinking about removing from my PC. Been unhappy with the changes and FireFox platforming "censorship" and showing political bias to woke agendas and free speech. Was a longtime big fan but I do not see Firefox doing well in the near future.

Hello,

I created an account in Firefox with my old e-mail; nyayesh_abdollahi@fripost.org.

However, I have since deleted that e-mail and also forgotten the login password for that Firefox-account; therefore, I can't login to it albeit it exists.

I'm not sure how this works but I do believe the best way to resolve the matter is through the deletion of the aforementioned account.

Kindly, Nyayesh Abdollahi

HOW DO WE RESTORE JAVASCRIPT. I guess 🤣 need to buy a new phone thanks to FIREFOX. None of the crap in this forum or online works. At first my problem was I can't open links because I need to enable JavaScript. I cannot use the suggested fix i.e. about:config. Doesn't work.

Just a few minutes ago I was able to post a DISAPPEARING query and then somehow I'm not in Firefox and when I try to log in WHICH I DID just minutes before I'm told my password doesn't work or I need to use primary acct which I try and still get told it's WRONG. So now I think I'm here by signing in with Gmail but the problems keep multiplying until I can't remember all the steps I took when something worked and a second later it was bad page or some warning or this that and the other. WHY THE "&?$ isn't there a fix I can complete before I die of old age? HOW DO I ENABLE JAVASCRIPT and why did it quit working?

Firefox seems to be unable to start in widowed or split screen mode on Huawei P40, EMUI 12. On EMUI 12, apps that support widowed mode are marked with a "window" button in the "recent apps" view. You can see in on screenshot in a yellow circle for Facebook app, but it is absent for Firefox. When I try switching to split screen mode, it shows a message, that Firefox is unable to be run in this mode (sorry, the message is in Japanese). Even if I try using an app Split Screen Shortcut, that seems to have it's own split screen function, separate from the EMUI one, Firefox still launches in fullscreen, and the Shortcut app returns an error.

The thing is, I tried Firefox on Samsung Galaxy A04s (presumably, Android 12?..), and it works without any problems.

It's it a bug and Firefox should support split screen and windowed mode, but doesn't, or does the app lack this support, but Samsung A04s's system just forces it to open in that mode itself?

If it's a bug, I would really appreciate it if you could fix it. This is literally the only downside (for me) this app has.

Firefox Android does not enter my login credentials into the blanks for some websites. The sites I’m having problems with are linuxmint forums (forums.linuxmint.com) and reddit and google.

I do not have this problem on Firefox for Linux. I do not have this problem on other websites with saved passwords on Firefox for Android.

What do these problem sites have in common, and what distinguishes them from the problem-free sites? The only thing I can think of is that for LinuxMint Forums, reddit, and Google, I have many saved passwords/credentials. I have 36 sets of credentials for reddit and 18 for Linux Mint forums and about 60 for Google.

Can someone please help me?

I have this problem for both Firefox Android regular (presently 114.2.0) and Firefox Android Beta (115.0b9). I've had this problem for a long time (probably over a year).
