The entire time I've had my Note 8 and firefox, I have noticed that when I quit the browser, it more often than not hangs on clearing private data. I've let the phone sit during this process for almost an hour before and it NEVER completes the process.

When this happens, if I go and close all the tabs and history manually, then it will finally quit. Doesn't make sense to have to do it manually when there is the setting to do it automatically.

OK.sync was working fine between my laptop and my two android devices.

Now laptop dead, dont have recovery key..

sync still seems to be working ok between android, but I want to recover all of my bookmarks.

Tried the following per some previous suggestions: Installed copyprofile and it succesfully copied to my sd card.

Reset passwords for account. verified I could log in on android devices to account.moz portal ok (on both android devices) verified I could also log in to portal via the desktop/pc ok

then told pc to sync for first time, and copied the #'s to my android sync screen under settings/firefox account

it said ok, and my desktop screen looked like it was syncing UNTIL I got a message at the bottom of the screen saying:" WRONG recovery key. sync will retry this action.

In Firefox 42.0 on my Nexus phone, going to Settings > Privacy > Clear now, then checking all the boxes and choosing "Clear data" does nothing. A side effect of this bug is that one of the following 3 boxes is randomly unchecked every time I choose the "Clear now" option. The 3 boxes are:

1. Cache 2. Offline web data 3. Site settings

I recently saw an old article that describes a very simialr problem: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/983277

Just like TenderTendon in that thread, I know the procedure for clearing data very well. To be extra clear, this isn't a question about how to clear the cache. Instead, I'm reporting a problem with clearing the cache.

I'm using these 2 workarounds for now: 1. Choose quit from the Firefox menu. This does erase the history properly. 2. Use private browsing so history won't be saved. If using private browsing and quitting Firefox by pulling it to the left or right on the "square" (recent applications button) at the bottom of the screen, all activity will be gone when Firefox is opened. If closing using the "circle" (bottom middle button) however, the private browsing tab will still be open.

Other things I've already tried: 1. In case someone suggests using "Don't keep activities" under the developer settings, I already tried it, and it doesn't do anything. 2. The CleanQuit addon is unnecessary. Firefox 42.0 does have a quit button in its menu by default.

Where I differ from the poster of that previous thread is that based on his video, he never fully closed Firefox, so his tabs were still there. This is probably expected behavior, because even private tabs aren't closed if I just use the circle button. But in my case, I never even tried closing Firefox. I just went straight for the "Clear data" option, and I think this is really the heart of the problem; the fact that you can't clear Firefox's cache without the quit option.

I'm open to suggestions. Firefox is still a great browser, and those 2 workarounds I described can be considered will keep it working for now. I am still surprised that the problem hasn't been fixed. It's been 2 years since the original poster of the previous thread asked his question. Is there a way to formally report this bug to the developers?

I did these settings below to turn on the DoH: network.trr.bootstrapAddress:104.16.249.249 network.trr.mode:3 (Others were kept default)

Then, I visited some websites. After a while, I went to the website of my ISP (China unicom) to lookup the details of my data usage, the URLs and visit time were presented there! And were exactly correct ! How??

Hello:

Somehow over the last several weeks, I have picked up an annoying adware/malware app that is getting Firefox to open a link to belombrea.com which then redirects to another ad site. I have tried using the add-on Block Site but that add-on is not consistent.

BTW...all my apps come from Google Play, which i thought would be free of trojans like this. Am I wrong?

Thanks in advance for any assistance with this issue.
