The Chinese font in Firefox Android always looks very strange, and makes readers very uncomfortable. Please see the screenshot below, especially the characters I highlighted -- I think all Chinese readers understand what I'm saying, and the characters 关 and 复 even has only 1/2 width of normal. Really weird. Some characters looks somewhat like Japanese font. From about:config, I find the font's name is ROBOTO, which is a western character font designed by a Google staff, and doesn't cover Chinese character. So I have no idea where the font shown comes from.

Firefox android seems to be the only browser that has such problem. In old versions, we can change the font with the Stylish addon, but there's no such addon in recent new version. As a Chinese user, I almost can't tolerate this problem anymore. In my opinion, the solution is very simple: just use the system font of Android, which is enough.

Hope the developers take this problem into account.

Just received 79.0.5 update. I have disabled all autocomplete options but if I type 'f' in URL bar it autocompletes as 'facebook'. Similarly, 't' completes as 'twitter', 'i' as 'instagram' etc. I really don't need or want my browser doing this. I tried about:config which seems to be disabled. Next I tried nightly which has about:config enabled but still couldn't disable autocomplete. I'd rather not use nightly tbh so a fix for ordinary Firefox would be appreciated.

Hello,

I just noticed & downloaded Firefox for Android Beta 81.1.0-beta.2 as I have been at my wits' end these past few days with the recent upgrade, Firefox 80.1.2 (which nearly always stalls with a blank white page)

Now I need my bookmarks so that I can work. They're all over on Ff 80.1.2 I have hundreds probably. Please help! I would like to delete the non-functioning Firefox 80.1.2 and throw in my lot with the beta version.

Thank you for any help.

(It makes me wonder how long I've been using a version of Firefox not intended for Android .... Can anyone tell me?)

Dark mode is a great feature and one of the reasons I love android. Especially with an OLED screen to conserve battery power but also save the eyes.

Firefox's dark mode is not for the following reasons.

- in between tabs/websites when the page data is loading a blaring white screen is displayed. This when contrasted to a website that is dark using DarkReader is quite blinding.

- It's dark but it as most reputable apps are offering a OLED dark mode to allow for the battery saving feature of having pixels being turned off. This should be enabled as a Firefox option or allow themes to do this for you.

I'm using - Firefox - Firefox beta

Currently lacking in ALL mobile browsers whether it be iOS or Android is the ability of the app to have multiple tabs that are visible at the same time just like a PC or Apple version of Firefox.

However, there is one mobile browser (Android Habit Browser) that has the ability to have multiple visible tabs are seen simultaneously & viewed immediately by touching tabs just like a PC or apple computer. It makes mobile browsing so simple and fun as opposed to the current designs where only 1 tab at a time is visible & you have to touch to view multiple thumbnails then switch to that single tab.

Also Habit Browser is very fast and completely customizable like Firefox pc and apple computer browsers.

So what I'm proposing is for Firefox redesign similar to this design and also this habit browser is not equipped with all the safety features that Firefox has and actually probably is not in financial sanding to make large Improvement. If I were Firefox I would buy the company and the technology and use it in their new browsers with all the security rich features that they're planning in the future and they would blow away all of the other browsers that are mobile with a superior usability and speed.

It will probably take a lot of people to ask for this for Firefox to consider this type of designs and it would be so much fun for Firefox to have that because I've been supporting them for years. I have always used the PC Firefox browser for a couple of decades.

This can only happen if there's a large support so I would encourage those who are interested in a superior mobile browser to go ahead and download The Habit browser and there are multiple settings and customizations and you'll see how easy to tabs work and how fast it is and how a Firefox browser with these capabilities would be fantastic!

Cheers,

Chris

I need help in installing a caret browsing add-on for my Android cell. I want to insert a cursor on any webpage and use my left/right arrows to move through the text so I can track where I am reading. I can do this on my laptop but not my Android cell. I have tried Edge and Chrome but the add-on is not available for Android. Any solution would be greatly appreciated, even if I need a different browser. Thanks in advance.

The previous answers (ex: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1185193) all say to go to 'settings > general > home > top sites'. There is no 'top sites' sub area. The sections are as follows:

'Set a Homepage': 'about:home' Also use for new tabs (off) Panels (unclickable label) Add-ons (unclickable label) Content updates: Wi-Fi


Please let me know how I can turn off the suggestions from Pocket and Highlighted pages. I still want it to show my Top Pages that I visit. I do not care to see any recommendations. I use other services to discover content and certainly don't need it every time I try to open a new web browser window.
