Hello,

I noticed this issue on some online stores recently. The don't have a sign out button anywhere. I tried to clear cache and cookies but nothing worked. I had to delete the FF app and reinstall it. User names and password are not saved. Even on websites I'm not even registered, after clearing the cookies and cache and reopen the browser, the items in my cart are still there.

Hello,

I am writing a Bachelor thesis on the Theme "Data privacy analysis on mobile Android Browser". Therefore I chose Firefox for Android and Firefox Focus ass two of the browsers to compare.

While a lot of information is online available or is presented in the app itself it seems that the following points are not:

- Does Firefox for Android support and implement by default a safe browsing API like Firefox Focus? (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/safe-browsing-firefox-focus)

- Does Firefox for Android or Firefox Focus support Secure DNS as the desktop version? If so are these enabled by default?

- Does Firefox for Android or Firefox Focus preloads pages while using a search engine in order to increase browsing speed?

- Does Firefox for Android saves Auto-fill form data? If so, how can this data be deleted again?

- Most browsers block in their Site settings "Pop-ups and redirects". Firefox for Android blocks pop-ups and Firefox Focus does not block them. Although I could not find any information regarding the "redirects" aspect. Is Firefox on mobile Devices allowing those?

Thanks in advance for any information!

Can someone help me how to activate GPS- tracking?

I don't know how to enabel it ( turn it ON).

At the same while I don't know if this has to do if I use Privacy mode ( because I've read that normaly Friefox disabels it), but it must be some type of rules/ exceptions ( permanent). But at the same while does it matter what type of surfing mode I'm using? ( as I've already mentioned that I newer uses normal mode).

Do I have to give permission ( go to Settings->Activate GPS- tracking), or can I just give local permission into Firefox ( have this permanently OFF?)

But hower I myself is newbie,and could't find any specific instructions how to activate it. So where can I find this?

Can it also be so that it has to do with specific devices?

Using multiple profiles / identities in Firefox for Android

On desktop, I use separate Firefox profiles for my work and for my private contexts. This avoids my employer tracking my private browsing habits and satisfies my other privacy and compliance concerns when accessing company resources. Both profiles use different Firefox Sync accounts so that my data is backed up, and so I can restore contexts even if I switch workstations.

I want to achieve a similar separation for my mobile browsing experience with Firefox. I want to have two "profiles", even if switching requires some manual work, so that I cleanly separate private from work-time browsing on my Android phone.

Is this achieved, or has the multi-profile approach been gutted from Firefox for Android?

1. Does VPN replace internet security program (I currently have Norton 360) and all its attending features such as anti-virus, firewall etc? 2. When I go online to shop or research topics, these sites often suggest that I allow their "extensions" to be added to my devices to "enhance" my experience on their sites or so they can provide me with more "relevant" information to me. With VPN installed how will this affect my interactions with these sites? Are these extensions only a guise for these companies to collect my personal information ?
