I'm trying to import a CA cert on Firefox on android, there isn't a way to import the same way as on the desktop version, from settings. I've tried putting the CA Cert on a website and downloading it, I've read that using this method Firefox would recognize that it is a CA cert, and offer to install it. I've also tried using the file:///path/to/ca/cert.crt but it just opens it as a text file.

how can I import a CA cert file on Firefox Android? is there an add-on, or ADB command? a way with root on android? a separate app to import it? How is this done?

Login window for Basic Authentication disappears after returning from the password manager

Hello everybody, Since the last major update (the address bar can be seen at the bottom of the display since the update), the login to a website via Basic Authentication no longer works if I use the Keepass2Android password manager to enter the password. If I want to log into a website using Basic Authentication with Firefox, the dialog box for entering a username and password appears first. In the Username field, instead of entering the name, I choose the function "Fill in with Keepass2Android". It then switches to the Keepass2Android app and I select an entry there. After the selection, it will switch back to Firefox for Android. The input field for username and password is filled and can only be seen for a fraction of a second before it disappears. However, it is not possible to register without pressing the "OK" button and I cannot access the website. I've already tried every possible setting in both Firefox and Keepass2Android. Unfortunately without success. A new version of Keepass2Android has not been released in the meantime, so that the cause is very likely to be due to the new Firefox version. I'm using a Samsung A50 with Android 10. Thank you in advance for your support. I am at your disposal for questions. regards Michael

The only advice available right now is using Nightly version as if I'm ready to sacrifice stability over about: config access. The main question is, why was it removed? Is it really accessible in Nightly if the advice was for 79 and I'm on 81 already that I guess should have included changes from Nightly of two versions prior.

'Support" in gPlayStore said to come here for help. So far, NO JOY.

When you suddenly stripped away access to about:config, you also wiped out my previously working PROXY SETTINGS? WHY??? What gave you the right to screw that up as part of "updating???"

Rather than fascisticsally removing about:config, WHY NOT CREATE A MECHANISM TO BACK-UP, RESTORE, RESTORE-TO-LAST-KNOWN-GOOD and OFFLINE EDIT :config SETTINGS. THAT would be USEFUL IDIOT-PROOFING, rather than taking away about:cofig.

If idiots are wrecking their FFforA by breaking things in about:config, LET THEM UNINSTALL/REINSTALL and START OVER FROM SCRATCH.

Why PUNISH EVERYONE ELSE???

The Devs are smarter than this. So are Power Users. Forcing Nightly and/or Beta is overbearing and arrogant.

Hello

I have installed the latest firefox update on my Samsung mobile phone (in french) 81.1.4, however I cannot find any menu setting to activate a primary password like on all the other firefox apps I'm using on my laptop and home PC.

How can this be controlled as I find it very dangerous having anyone access my phone and able to check the password mananger and view all passwords without entering a primary password. Thank you for your help.

Although "Settings->Site Permissons -> Notification" is set to "blocked" there are messages popping up that ask me to allow push notifications. Example: https://www.wetteronline.de/wetter/berlin The request for push notification does not appear immediately but after some time (about a minute). Firefox Android version is 81.1.2. I do not get the popup for this site ( https://www.wetteronline.de/wetter/berlin) when using Firefox Desktop which is also set to block any request regarding push notifications. Is there any way to completely stop also Firefox Android to ask for push notifications?
