I use an old android tablet for work on the internet. Don't know why, but I feel if something happens I won't lose. It is an android 4.2.2 type device. Firefox browser won't play videos. This is my only complaint. I need this option so I can test website programming code. v68.9.0 is the version I have on the tablet. What is the max version I can put on the tablet without losing performance and gain video play.

The new Firefox is available WTF

Now you have finally made me consider leaving Mozilla. You have tried again and again over the past years and now it is time for me to make a decision. The new Android Firefox is no longer usable for me due to decisions I can't understand - it looks to me like you are throwing your loyal user base overboard just to get more/new/other/better users? I don't think it will work that way! At least it won't work that way for me.

For now, I'm back to Firefox 68.11, the latest usable Firefox. The only thing I want to know right now is whether you plan to annoy your satisfied users even more and scare them away in favor of users you don't have yet, so I can decide whether I should wait a little longer so you can fix things, or whether I'd better find an alternative that works for me right away - this will apply to all my systems and all systems I support.

Sync not working on latest Firefox for Android

Hello. I use sync on two devices only, a PC and an android device. Today it has ceased to sync data to and from the android device. It just says "Last sync: never" even after clicking the sync button. The only thing I found online was to not have over 5000 bookmarks (which I don't) and to update Firefox. (I'm on the latest version)

So far I've tried clearing the data of the app, which didn't work so I tried reinstalling it entirely. That also didn't help. I've removed all duplicate devices from my account settings too.

Not sure what more I can do

EDIT:

Fixed itself of course only after I post here. I waited a few hours too..

How to disable auto update in FireFox on Android ?

Hi,

I updated to the latest, utterly, preposterously, appallingly, awfully, obnoxiously bad version of FF on Android and immediately bailed back to V68.11.0 which I found on the web. Imagine my shock and horror at finding the new version back on my system again, without my intervention, a few hours later !!

Please can someone tell me how to set up my system so that it doesn't update FFA to any later versions, and so that the latest update is not shown in the Play Store under "My apps & games" as otherwise it is likely that the software abomination that is the latest version of FFA will find its way back onto my tablet.

I have spent hours on this, setting up and re-setting up my browser and I really have no idea what on earth was going on in the minds of the developers of this latest crock. Is it the secret intention of the leadets of this project to kill FF completely ? It seems that every change tnat is made makes browsing less intuitive and easy and there is absolutely zero payback in terms of useful functionality. Seriously, is it your intention to kill FF altogether ? It really seems like it.

But if you could answer my other questions as the higher priority, that would help.

Thanks,

So I have been looking through reviews of the new version 79 of Firefox for Android and only about 1 in 50 are positive reviews. And I'm pretty sure those are fake planted reviews. So it's safe to say that everyone hates the new browser. 2 part question: 1. How likely do you think it is that they will ditch the horrible new version and go back to just updating the good one? 2. For now I have uninstalled the 79 update and manually reinstalled the last 68 version, but apparently in an epic "dick move" they also said they are stopping all security updates for older versions as well, so I'm looking for recommendations on a new browser that is not Chrome or the Samsung default browser, and suggestions?

Running OxygenOS 10.0.0 on OnePlus 5T. Using Chrome or Brave browsers, tapping a Twitter link opens the Twitter app which I much prefer. In the mobile Firefox app this is not the case. I get a new tab with mobile.twitter.com url within Firefox. Is there a way to default Twitter links to the Twitter app? Thanks.

Congratulations for making Firefox Daylight available at Google Play now! I have a question, is it possible to download it from download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net as well? It would nice if this app can be available from that site, from which it's possible to get it quickly via some download accelerator apps as ADM or Download Navi, and helps more people to get it if they can't access the Google Play. :-D

I made the update yesterday but everything looks the same. I've been at this for 5 hours already trying to get my damn mobile app to show any sign that there are new features available. I've checked and rechecked already several times the 'About Firefox' section and YES, it says that the version is the 68.11.0. Followed every instruction I could find online...Yet NOTHING!! No dark theme feature, no changing toolbar options...NADA!!
