Why do I keep losing the ability to start on home page?

Few years ago I had Firefox set to open to home screen every time I clicked Firefox on the task bar, even if Firefox was already open in the background. That worked great for me. Now it only lets you do it after four hours of inactivity or something. Or when you close all tabs, which also takes way more clicks now when it used to take none.

Then until this morning, actually, I've been keeping a shortcut to Firefox home on the bottom of my phone's the home screen right above Firefox in the taskbar. That worked okay for me, but I'd have preferred it like it used to be.

Today clicking that shortcut says "Shortcut isn't available." So I opened Firefox home screen to make another shortcut, but I can't.

I just want Firefox to open automatically start on the home screen. Because that works for me. Why does it keep getting harder and harder? And what I can do now to fix it?

this is always a pain in the neck. Bought new phone, Android 11, I need to read a file, named file.htm, in memory with firefox (or other browsers). This should be my home. I authorize FF to read memory (unfortunately there is only the checkbox for multimedia files, I do not know if this is an issue), and in the address I type

file:///storage/emulated/0/file.htm

No way, no message, just white page. Also with previous phones the first time I did this was a problem, but this time seems really hard. I tried also with 4 and 5 slashes but nothing changes.

Tried also to launch the file from the file manager but it does not propose me FF even if it is the default browser, just some crap like pictures and similar app.

NOTE someone said the FF has removed the possibility for security, but at least on my pc I can do it without a glitch

Thanks in advance to whomever will reply

I have mainly switched and using firefox due to its ease of use "multiple search engine". It's been a couple of years, however I'm still unable to figure out how

Text to url Text to text works?

I mean let's say i'm gonna search "firefox now requires double click to switch search engines"

Text to url becomes like this- https://html.duckduckgo.com/html?q=firefox%20now%20requires%20double%20click%20to%20switch%20search%20engines


And text to text becomes like this- firefox now requires double click to switch search engines

Main point: In case of "text to url", search engine has processed and showed result. I click "search bar" and can copy url.

However I'm not sure how text to text works.....many times I immediately click search bar after clciking Enter or Go and the search text stays as it is.

Hi all. Cam anyone tell me if there will be a print to PDF feature added any time soon? I really miss the feature for printing receipts etc but it's been missing since the new Firefox interface arrived. I keep having to switch too Chrome to print.

I've had a Google but it doesn't seem to be something that's available even by an add-on.

I'm using a Pixel 6 with the latest Firefox available in the Play store.

Suggestions please :)

Thanks

This auto refresh is the most annoying, useless thing I ever seen. I leave the browser for 2 seconds, come right back and it reloads the page wiping out all info I had just entered. It's ridiculous.

And now, the "accessibility.blockautorefresh" is not even an option to disable in the "about:config" settings.

Please tell me there's another way to disable this garbage because I love Firefox and can't use any other browser as my default. But I am slowly starting to lose interest in it due to this stupid autorefresh.

Firefox Nightly - in The Collection

When we make a save in a Collection folder, The last folder in which the save is made be first on the list... and so on...

I am currently looking for the folder in the collection. It's kind of frustrating.

If this issue can be resolved. Thanks for understanding.
