I dont get why you removed the ability to see the history of the window I'm in, by using the back or forward arrows. It made it very convenient to go back to where I had started from or to see what do you original topic was that I had started the window for. Why would you remove this excellent feature?

On my Windows laptop, the latest Firefox doesn't work right with the Wi-Fi login page for Hughes Internet at my local Denny's Restaurants. I have had to make Chrome the default browser so that I can get logged in and then I have to switch to Firefox. If you need a specific URL, contact me at stuff hat Phil Wells daught Net

This third comment may not be Firefox asphalt, but I need to ask - why does Dashlane, V password manager I use, not work with Firefox for Android? It works for other versions of Firefox and it works for Chrome on Android. Is that their problem or yours?

lastly, why is there not a simple email address that I can write to with questions It's not like I do very often, but being able to send a question or even an observation that might be helpful to you, to support at firefox.com, or whatever, would be easier for us users and would mean that we could keep a copy of the message that we've sent.

An and, did you know that with, at least Firefox for Android, this form won't let the user put the cursor in the middle of the text to add or delete something? If I put the cursor in the middle of the text someplace and I hit delete where I start typing, the action wants up occurring at the very end Of the message. Something's very wrong.

For quite some time (several years), Firefox for Android had used the Android back button, with a forward button being available in the menu.

I understand that this is because while people generally want to make use of the back button, they do not need to use forward as much (but we still want to make sure it is there for those that do).

I hope this helps.

Hi

The new Firefox uses the Android back button and has a forward button the menu.

Dashlane have yet to update their software to support the new Firefox on Android.

We do not provide email support as we are a community of volunteers working across timezones to help people and an open forum helps with this.

I am aware of the fwd and back buttons. But if you look at FF Win, if you hold the back arrow, you see a chrono list of where you've been and you can go back to any step in the sequence. Same with the forward button. Yet there's no long longer anything like this in the new FF for Android.

Hi Phil

Please appreciate that desktop and mobile platforms and form factor are very different and apps are designed to work best for the form factor they are built for.

You may want to clear the application cache for your keyboard app in the Android Settings to improve keyboard performance.

As for the Dashlane issue - this is better asked of the Dashlane support team.
