The lastest version of firefox for android just does not work on my phone, whats the last version of mobile firefox where i actually have the abillity to stop these updates. As of now i have to reinstall an old version every time i walk past an open wifi but i dont know how far back i have to go before i can disable updates.

Removing the abillity to stop updates is crippling if you have issues, this is a major oversight and it should never have been taken away.

Starting at 79.0.5 - why did you give us such a crappy update?

I was told I should 'ask' a question to keep my post from being locked. So that's what I've done. I realize too that it is largely volunteers answering here, so my ire is not directed at you, but hopefully the developers and decision makers might hear this.

With the 79.0.5 update, Firefox had become a total pain. The interface is confusing, so much so that I have given up using it. I tried, but could never find many of the functions and features I always use. And there's really only so much time I want to spend - and should be expected to spend - learning how to use a once-beloved app.

And some of the developer feedback hasn't been helpful, like being told that they simply can't (or is won't the proper word here?) return to a more familiar - and much more user-friendly - interface.

So, I had to switch to Opera as the default browser on my Android tablet - and even though it is a different interface than what I was used to with FF, I was up and running with just a few minutes spent learning the new app. That's how it's supposed to be. (Oh, and I no longer have all the PDF download failures I had with FF!)

As of the last update.. or so I believe.. video playback, more specific, buffering for videos stops when I close my screen or switch to another tab.

Up until now I have had no problems with videos playing in the background while my phone was closed or I was in another application other than firefox.

This recent update seems to have stopped this. When I close my phone the video WILL keep playing, but only up until the point that it had buffered to. I always use background mode.

I have read about websites checking to see if your phone is closed and if it senses this, it will restrict background data.

I don't know why websites have to do this... it's incredibly frustrating since this has worked in the past seamlessly.

I love firefox and use it for all my browsing on all my devices but now I am using the Brave browser on my phone because I have no other current option to use background data.

If brave can offer this simple function with the press of a button, why can't firefox?

Since version 80.1.2, about 99% of web pages simply do not load. They end up with a blank white page, or, if very "lucky", a partially loaded page that just gets completely stuck and never finishes. It was working fine yesterday. To add insult to injury, one of the pages that doesn't load at all is the support page! Sometimes a page will load, then another page will crash out, and the previous page that did load stops loading.

So nobody has to ask:

  • yes, it is at the latest version.
  • no, restarting Firefox doesn't help
  • no, clearing the cache doesn't help, or if it does, it helps briefly for one site and then everything is broken again

Basically, even though it's not likely helpful, the actual best description is: "Firefox is broken" since it can't be used for it's purported purpose.

Every site I try to load has the warning in the attached screenshot. Im trying to switch from chrome to Firefox permanently but I get this error on literally every website I try except Firefox.com.

It's literally the only thing preventing me from using Firefox permanently on desktop and Android.

I understand it's because it says https but even on chrome I connect to every site with https and I rarely ever see a warning.

Also Google is automatically sending any email from Mozilla into the spam folder which seems... Anti trust to me.

Thanks

The new version is ugly, slow, user unfriendly and all my tabs were closed, my configuration was mixed up. It reinstalled google and bing search again. So I want to go back to the previous version (if possible) or I need another browser that is better than the actual firefox. Does someone has tips for me where to find the previous version or what browser is at last okay to use?!

Have to continually refresh, reload, clear broeser cache, force close app just to get yahoo working properly. Every other site works just fine. You try to reply or compose a message and the letters of getting mixed up as I type and even spacing goes 2 or 3 spaces out per letter even letter start going behind and in front of eachother what the heeeeeck....In any part of yahoo mail when you click to do something it will start load an 1 mil of a second it immediately get stuck or starts loading slow then goes to like a connection lost or server down page which have to refresh 30 times to bring it back up. Another example out of the many is attachments don't want to open after clicking on the paper click (PAGE TIMES OUT) amazing and will get Yahoo didn't save the draft losing everything typed yet all the sudden attachments open then the next battle is trying to get the attachment to go which takes hours just to upload attachments. This problem has been going on for years and happens to a lot of people as I see in other forums. Will continue to surch for an answer till meet a computer mastermind.
