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?

Not sure WHY but suddenly I cannot open links or ages on my Android phone. It seems that JavaScript has gone missing and I have spent two entire days trying to get it back with about:config but it's not allowing me to proceed and it's a major pain I need to fix ASAP.

Hello fam.

I just downloaded an extension of a particular app. It's expected that the app automatically connects with the browser as I click to join them but it keeps failing. How do I rectify this?

As of yesterday (1st Nov 2023), Firefox started reporting "Proxy Server Refused Connection" when trying to browse websites over Wifi.

I have a proxy server configured in my phone wifi settings, and this has worked before, and still works in other apps (Chrome, etc)

Checking with tcpdump on the proxy server itself, I see my phone trying to connect to port 80, rather than the configured port (8000)

Firefox version: 119.0.1 Phone: Samsung Galaxy S22 Android version: 13

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.

Auto fill for login details not working properly

Hi. So for quite a few months I've been experiencing two issues relating to the Firefox auto fill for login details.

Issue 1. When you visit a website sign in page the "Suggested logins" box pops up at the bottom (all normal). But then when you login the box won't go away. I can navigate to somewhere new in same tab or switch to another tab already open and the box won't disappear. To get rid of it I need to open a new tab and go to a new webpage, then I can go back to my already open tab.

Issue 2. The "Suggested logins" auto fill for sign in fields on a webpage won't work. This issue started around the same time as the first and is not on every website but a few including Google Account sign in which I use a lot. I will navigate to a sign in page, the Suggested logins box pops up, I select the login I want, but then it won't fill it in.

I've tried reinstalling the Firefox app, but it didn't work. I've kept using the app despite dealing with this everyday. They may be small bugs but they do get tedious after months of it daily. I was hoping an app update would fix the problem but no update has. So I thought I would share, see if its just me.

Hello. I have the most recent update for Android Firefox. Suddenly I can not watch videos because it says my JavaScript is off. I have not done anything to change any settings. And I am unable to get into "About:Config" to change anything. The version of Android Firefox is 117.0. I would appreciate a response as soon as possible. Thank you so much.

Sorry if this has already been addressed, the nature of the issue makes it very hard to search.

Firefox web access on my phone has been not working whatsoever for a few days now. The app opens, but no webpages load, including pages that were previously open in other tabs before the issue started. Instead of anything, there is just an empty grey screen with the bar at the top like usual. This also happens if I open any web URL in another app, like Discord or Gmail, and it tries to use my default browser (which is Firefox) to access it. Just straight greyness, no loading bar or anything. The issue isn't present in the default Samsung web browser, but honestly, I can't stand using anything other than Firefox, so even looking up help has had to wait until I could use my computer.

I've tried restarting my phone to no avail. I would like to try uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, but as far as I can tell there is no raw "copy a folder" way to back up my data for whatever reason, and when I tried backing up my data by creating a Firefox account for the first time and using sync... well, to do that, it tries to open a series of webpages. Which it can't do. So that was a dead end. And I would really like to avoid losing my tabs, bookmarks, and history if at all possible.

If I don't get an answer that works for me, I think I am going to enable developer access in my phone files and hook it up to my computer to try and force-backup my data, then uninstall and reinstall the app and see if that helps. Honestly, though, I'm really curious why this has happened and how I can prevent it in the future. Having my web browser suddenly just cease to function has been INCREDIBLY annoying.

Thank you for your time!
