Give us a light web browser without all the unwanted bloat and GIVE US OUR HOME PAGE BACK!!!

I am appalled that I had to create ANOTHER freaking useless account just to post feedback here. I don't want a Firefox account. I don't collect web sites. I don't want you to suggest web sites. I don't want you to save my passwords. I don't want you to autofill my fields. I don't want to store anything in the "cloud" (aka someone else's computer). I don't want to sync anything across multiple devices. I don't want my browser to access my microphone, camera, contacts, location, or anything else except the damned internet. I don't want my browser to choose ANYTHING for me. I just want it to do what I tell it to. And do it well.

I WANT TO SET MY OWN HOME PAGE. I want my browser to be able to load web sites. I want my browser to be able to play videos. I want my browser to be able to upload and download files. I want my web browser to be functional and fast. Lightweight, small footprint, mobile friendly. I don't want it to be a data repository, or a personal assistant, or a password vault, or a crutch, or a tracker, or another THING that I have to manage.

This applies to both desktop and mobile.

I want Firefox to be the lean, mean, browsing machine like it was when it first burst onto the scene.

HOME. PAGE.

Firefox Android doesn't show websites while it is ok with Google Chrome

Hello,

I have Android 10 and use the latest stable Android version.

I use PiHole on my local network, AdAway on the Android device and uBlock Origin.

I use some applications like DealLabs (french) MyDealz (German) which are from the same company.

when you have a "deal" to show the website were the deal occurs, you click on a button and are redirected to your browser on one of those sites:

mydealz.digidip.net dealabs.digidip.net

I have completely uninstalled uBlock Origin as I am 100% sure it is inside Firefox.

I also have tried to disabled Adaway, disable Pihole but they are not causing any issues as I can go to the website from Google Chrome Android.

From termux, if I issue nslookup any of those sites I get an answer :

/etc $ /etc $ nslookup mydealz.digidip.net Server: 8.8.8.8 Address: 8.8.8.8#53

Non-authoritative answer: Name: mydealz.digidip.net Address: 3.122.182.6 Name: mydealz.digidip.net Address: 3.127.16.153

/etc $ nslookup dealabs.digidip.net Server: 8.8.8.8 Address: 8.8.8.8#53

Non-authoritative answer: Name: dealabs.digidip.net Address: 3.127.16.153 Name: dealabs.digidip.net Address: 3.122.182.6

/etc $

The URL that the browser try to open is for instance :

https://dealabs.digidip.net/visit?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.epicgames.com%2Fstore%2Ffr%2Ffree-games&ppref=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dealabs.com&ref=1058115383

and it should redirect to the url encoded url but firefox show this error (unknown address)


I have tried to disable tracking protection, but it doesn't change anything at all.

I also tried to go to about:config, which doesn't exists in stable branch, so installed Nightly build, and tried to disable dns prefetch, ipv6 (not sure this one existed on android) ... nothing helped me.

I don't know any other website which is blocked.

BTW, I have ESET Mobile Security also installed only as antivirus but as Chrome can load tghe website without any issue I don't think it can be related, also it should not block any website (or at least it should show that eset blocks something)

I also tried to go here in firefox:

https://3.122.182.6/visit?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.epicgames.com%2Fstore%2Ffr%2Ffree-games&ppref=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dealabs.com&ref=1058115383

I then receive an error regarding https certificate and then can go to the digidip.net website which redirect me to the epic website.

I can't edit hosts file from termux, I should miss something probably, I would like to hard code the ip addresses of the websites to see if it helps.

Is there something I should try to unblock the websites ?

Hi, I just what to communicate that at the beginning, if Firefox was the best it was because it was the most faster browser. Now with all possibility and extension Firefox is too slow.

For example last time I want to search on Google ask and the request take 1minute because the browser made an update.

Imagine a little Firefox who start instantly! Imagine a little Firefox who take 10 mo ram with 10 Tab ( personally I don't think it's possible but it's the idea)

Sorry for my English, but I hope that a team build a new Firefox, little Firefox because actually any browser ( Chrome, edge, opera, safari) have this possibility.

Best regards My old best browser Firefox.

I have had Firefox Nightly installed on my android device for years with no issues. About two months ago, I started to experience an issue where nightly would not load any sites at all while I had the AdGuard app running. I am able to browse social media/ YouTube with no connection issues at all. I am also able to load traffic while in Chrome for Android and Firefox Focus. The regular version of Firefox and Nightly are the ones that do not load unless I deactivate AdGuard. I have uninstalled and installed all browsers with their standard tracking protection settings and have not messed with any other settings at all. This is not an AdGuard issue since the traffic loads with no problems on other browsers other than the ones mentioned. This happens on multiple Android devices exactly as described.

What is the highest version that may be installed like this?- I did not have a browser on my android TV so I downloaded android apk from https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Platforms/Android and installed it on my android TV. It was version 68 and did not work for meet.google.com and some other sites. I tried to install the apk of Firefox version 92 but on the screen it simply displayed "app not installed". What is the highest version that may be installed like this?
