Please, please, please... bring back the pre v. 100 ability to not remember History, and to completely Close Apps when closing Firefox!!! (& to really not remember history, or tabs)

High data use and freezing makes that I have to go into Settings/Apps/Firefox/Storage/cache and delete all, because Firefox froze at each use, as it was suddenly remembering every site opened, despite my checking the boxes not to remember upon closing. Many sites are opened accidentally, as Firefox is the default browser. Not really closing any site, so I run out of data room? (Deleting app data fixes the unresponsive app.)

I really miss the pre 100 versions, when Firefox was dependable, fast, and lean in data use. And tried all the other new versions, but they all have the same site cookies hoarding problem. That is a very data heavy way to be fast, that leads to a lot of crashes where internet infrastructure is minimal.

Thank you for reading. CB

Hello,

Quite à few month ago, after update, my new Firefox for Android does not allow me to access to the print option. I cannot find the page nor the tools options using my mobile. When using edge, chrome or other browser, I still do have this option and therefore able to print pdf copies of the resources I do want to archive. Is it possible to know why these printing options are unaccessible on Firefox using Android ?

Regards

I originally was able to create the home page shortcut to Piped with Chrome, but the shortcut launched Chrome, even though Firefox is my default browser?

Piped [https://piped.kavin.rocks/https://pip.../|Piped]

So I deleted the shortcut. Now, Chrome no longer even offers me the option to "Add to Home Screen" from the Piped page, but it still does for other sites. Within Chrome, It now offers me the option to open the page in Firefox, even if I make Chrome the default browser.

How can I get a shortcut to Piped on my home page that will open in Firefox?

Hi there

On some sites I use, their aps are next to useless as are their mobile sites. I want to be able to access the REAL websites but when I change the URL (e.g. change m.twitch.tv to just twitch.tv) it simply redirects to the mobile site again. How can I force it to show me the full web page instead please ?

Many thanks

This is for my Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G: today is Monday, 2022.07. 25.1401.CDT I cannot get the microphone on android mobile Firefox[Version is labelled "Direfox Daylight, version 102.2.1 (Build # 2015891003]. The fix of turning "Show Voice Search" on under 'Search', under "Settings" has no impact: in fact I found "Show Voice Search" was already checked, and the microphone DOES NOT WORK?

I have Grammarly kb set, and wondered if other kb options as alternates but not active, like Gboard, the Samsung, Google or speech to text options, or known add-ons, etc. can be blocking my microphone? With this android mobile Firefox there is no option of entering "about..... Microphone" or other command line options do not work entered on this version of Firefox, what to do? I want the microphone "on" by default if possible as I was just dxed with Adult-onset or Type II diabetes, doing 5 finger sticks each day for my blood glucose: both fingers n thumbs every 2 days: my fingertips are so sort, even using a stylus, my kb entries have errors 50% of my attempts.

What is "Firefox Daylight"? A version for Android?

Are there other modifyiers for Firefox, like addons, or other Firefox modifying supplements like "site to ask permission for microphone" that are known to interfere or block microphone activity?

I would like to change the default Firefox "Android" search engine to a custom URL settings for DuckDuckGo.

I have dark mode set for my phone(S21) Firefox won't let me block websites access to this user string. I believe this is a huge privacy concern and would like an option to spoof this, as to not break websites. Currently that is not an option, and without access to about:config I can't make a work around.

So this gets me back to DuckDuckGo, and because I clear my cookies often, and the Android version does not have Compartments, I need a work around. Like a lot of websites DuckDuckGo reads my theme and changes it to Dark mode. There is a custom setting, and I have a custom URL but Firefox won't let me change it to this custom URL

https://start.duckduckgo.com/?kae=-1&kak=-1&kal=-1&kao=-1&kaq=-1

Please help, as I love Firefox, but God dam does it make me angry with all the bugs, and Mozilla's current philosophy of streamlining the Android version.

P.s. Google (I assume) has once again changed the user agent for Firefox Android, and I have had enough, and wanted to change back to Duck, but Dark Mode really irritates me on most websites. I really don't get why everything has to be so frigging hard, if you don't accept the status quo.

A recent update (v102) to Firefox for Android has broken "search browsing history". Before, I was able to type "tw" and see a list of ~20 Twitter results from my browsing history, arranged by frequency of visit; now, it only shows one. Is this new behaviour a deliberate change (if so, it's really bad compared to the ease of usability of the feature previously - please revert it!) or a bug?

I have installed and utilize two different browsers for Android phones: Firefox and Opera. When reading an article I was sent part of in my email, I opened the entire article so I could read the article in it's entirety. You choose to open the article in my Opera browser when you could have detected that I had Firefox, a browser you support, and opened it in the Firefox browser. Then we wouldn't have had to stop and go back and copy the article's URL and open my Firefox browser myself. I don't have either of my browsers set as "default" for exactly this reason; so articles can open their publication in the browser of their choice. By the way, the URL that I was opening was: https://member.carepayment.com/Errors/UnsupportedBrowser. This is the first time I have ever been told what browser I could use to view a personal account. Next time, detect that there's a supported browser and open the one you like and support. My Firefox browser could have been opened by you, but not receiving any instructions otherwise, it opened my Opera browser and I couldn't see my personal account of a healthcare payment company.

Before Firefox for Android v100 it was possible to show only pinned sites in the top sites section in the home screen. Now alongside my pinned sites (currently 3) there are 2 rows of 4 sites and 2 pages. All these other sites are pages related to my work, full of test URLs, 500 or 404 pages... and so on. How do I revert it to the old behavior?

The widget mic makes a very annoying sound every time that you tap it to do a search. It is tied to the ringer volume apparently. Is this a Firefox feature that can be turned off? Or is this tied to Android only and you have zero control?

If you have control over it, please disable it, it's pointless and serves no purpose. When you tap the microphone a big huge screen comes up letting you know to speak.
