I am logged in to both my Desktop Firefox browser and my Android Firefox mobile app browser using the same Firefox account on both devices. I can send tabs from my desktop to my mobile device and vice versa; however, I cannot see the tabs that are open on the desktop version using sync. Furthermore, when I read the instructions on the website that says go to the Menu in the Firefox app on my mobile device and click the Sync and Save data. That is NOT an option in the Menu in my Firefox app. When I go to "Connected Devices" in the Firefox mobile app, I do not see my desktop.

Can someone provide any assistance?

The Firefox support site says that downloaded files can be deleted through the downloads menu in Firefox: https://mzl.la/3P8HXEs

The steps say that there should be a three-dot button but mine only shows a "trash" icon that removes the file from Firefox without actually deleting the file. Is this a Firefox big that needs to be reported, or something wrong with my install, or outdated support information?

Some websites still open in app, even when that app is set to NOT open supported links

In Firefox settings, I DO have "Open links in apps" enabled, because I do want most sites to do this. However, there are some specific sites that I DON'T want to open in app. For most of these (e.g. Aurora Store), it is sufficient to open the App Info (in Android system Settings) and disable "Open supported links" (and also tap the "clear default preferences" button, if it's there). For those apps where I've disabled supported links, webpages will load normally in the browser, and there won't even be an "Open in app" option from the 3-dot dropdown menu for the website.

The problem is, some apps that have supported links disabled will still be opened when a link to their website is tapped in browser. One example of this is Tumblr. Tapping a link to any tumblr.com site will launch the Tumblr app instead (which is a particular problem because the Tumblr app currently has a bug where it cannot open links to specific pages, so it navigates to the homepage instead, which is useless. For this reason, it's imperative that Tumblr links open only in browser, at least until Tumblr fixes their bugs.)

Is there anything that I'm missing that will definitely prevent FF from launching an app, when that app is set to NOT open supported links? Is this a FF mobile bug that I should file on Bugzilla? Are there any workarounds (perhaps like a 3rd-party app that intercepts the intent to open Tumblr and redirects it back to the browser)?

Weird white stripes on Firefox Android

Hey. I hope no one asked this question before because I could not find it. I am trying to build a website, that contains a header, a main-part, and a footer. All of them together should make up 100% of the screen size. The height of the header and footer are fixed to 100px each, so the main part must be adjustable. On desktop this is easy accomplishable in CSS trough: height: calc(100vh – 200px). On mobile however, 100vh does not include the URL bar. Therefore, I used JavaScript. Basically, I am checking if the device used is a mobile one. If so, I use window.innerheight and subtract 200px from it. That fixes the issue, at least on some mobile browsers. And here is where the fun begins:

On Brave-Android it works as expected. On Firefox-Android however, it does not work at all. There are two white stripes on the site. One under the iframe that holds the header and the other at the very bottom of the site.

I have added two screenshots to this question. One screenshot shows how it is supposed to look, the other one shows the problem I am facing.

If you want to check out the code, I did upload everything to GitHub. The site itself is in German, but all the variable are in English.

On Firefox 109.1.1 (Build #2015927171), on every website I've visited, when I enter full screen, the Android Navigation Bar hides, as I would expect. But when I leave full screen, the Navigation Bar stays hidden, as if I'm still in full screen, requiring me to swipe up to show it. The app will continue this behavior across multiple tabs and on every website, until the app is force-closed and cache cleared.

Using Firefox 109.1.1 (Build #2015927171) on a Samsung Galaxy S22 Running Android 13 with One UI 5.0. No other browser or app shows this behavior. Attached screenshot shows Nav Bar hidden.

On this link if the options are selected, there are two embedded PDFs in two tabs on same page. The firefox Android app downloader randomly gives the option to download only one of the two. I wish to download both the PDFs. Is there a way to stop the firefox from giving download option, but see the embedded PDFs on the page itself. So that we can download it by clicking on the embedded PDFs.

Below are images on expected behaviour of chrome browser, but errorneous behaviour of firefox. Firefox shows option to download the file from first tab that is E-text. But when clicked to download ends up downloading file on the second tab Learn More.

Hello!

Long time user of Firefox and Firefox browser on Android. I've had it on multiple phones so naturally I installed it when I got a new phone, Moto edge 20, and it worked like a charm.

After using it for a month or so Firefox suddenly had disappeared from my new phone. It somehow removed itself while locked and unused.. I have no idea how that happened. So I tried to re-install but it simply stops after the download & install process, in Play Store, and the install button appears again. I've not been able to re-install it since it happened several months ago.

Tried Firefox beta, which installed, but crashes a couple seconds after launch..
