Why does the app icon on my phone show a red dot, I can't find anything within settings to get rid of it. Presumably it's some sort of notification but it's not much use if I can't find out what it's notifying me about!

When I type a search topic into the search bar on the Fx home page (Android Firefox) ".com" is automatically added to the end of the search topic. For example, if I type "cars" into the search bar it shows "cars.com" in the search bar. I tried changing the search engine in Fx settings but it does the same thing regardless of which search engine I'm using.

Hi, whenever I switch from home Wi-Fi to my mobile carrier data or when our Wi-Fi temporarily goes out immediately and almost immediately the Firefox web browser stops working like I cannot search anything online that it will say like can't connect and the web browser logs me out of my Firefox browser account and it won't accept my password(I type in the correct password), so I have to restart my phone and the browser works again and I'm logged back in without having to put in my password. It's on smartphone Razer phone 2(android 9.0) Firefox daylight version: 96.3.1 (Build #2015860755), 5e0953d24+ AC: 96.0.15, 0178a6fde9 GV: 96.0.3-20220126154723 AS: 86.2.2

But this has been happening on every firefox version for the past several months maybe longer and Google always updates Firefox so no issues there, again at least every Firefox version for the past several months maybe longer this has been happening, and it never happened before until back then. And I don't have any add-ons or plugins and I use the duck duck go search engine.

Before the recent Android update, I was able to open external links and was able to choose what app I open link with now when I want to use an external app, Firefox automatically chooses my default browser to open said link. Very frustrating is there a way to fix this?
