I have Avast premium security on my Android Motorola G6. Every time I open Firefox this malicious website tries to open! I deleted my history and it still comes back. Also when I'm not using the Firefox browser it still tries to open! Once I open the browser sometimes there are as many as seven or more attempts by this page to open! PLEASE HELP ME GET RID OF IT PERMANENTLY! Thank you! anvanbro@gmail.com

Sometimes I have a need to copy or edit part of very long URL that includes many passed parameters and tokens in address bar of FireFox for Android. Having to swipe twenty times to get to required position in string is not very convenient comparing to ease of such procedure on PC where you have mouse and Home/End keys.

I'd like to request for a new feature of on/off toggle for address bar in FF for Android that could switch it into multiline edit mode where all URL would be visible and easily navigated and edited. I just don't know where to submit it.

I'm at my wits end. This issue started yesterday morning, and is still persisting, and I'm not quite sure what to do at this point other than use Chrome for One Singular Website and nothing else.

Currently, the website does the following:

  1. I open a new tab on this website.
  2. It asks me to log in.
  3. I select "Log in with Google".
  4. Firefox asks me "Prevent this site from opening a pop-up window?" and includes a link to the Google login doohickey.
  5. I tap "ALLOW" which opens the Google login doohickey in a new tab, where I sign in with my Google account.
  6. It goes back to the original tab, not having logged me in.

Previously, it would not give me a message about the pop-up, and would work fine. Presumably, asking this "Are you sure?" causes something to break with this one website's sign-in.

I have tried with Enhanced Tracking Protection set to Standard (default), Strict, and Custom, disabling all security features and throwing caution to the wind. None of these have fixed it.

I've tried going to about:config, since that was mentioned in a similar support post on here. It just leads me back to the tab I already have open, seemingly not doing Anything.

I've looked through every tab in settings, including Site permissions, and there is No Menu Option at all for pop-ups.

This was a very recent change, and only started giving me problems in February.

OVER THREE YEARS PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DEMANDING THIS. When I tap a link in an app, I want it to open IN FIREFOX. Not some custom tab. Not some special pseudo in-app environment. IN. FIREFOX. EVERY OTHER browser on Android can do this. Don't give me some BS answer about removing Firefox as my default browser, either. That causes it to either open in the app I'm using, or the phone's built-in browser, NEITHER OF WHICH ARE SECURE. If you really care about security, like you're trying to sell us you are, you will fix this yesterday.

Since updating to v 122.0 (Android) today, my home page displays a permanent intrusive "Customise homepage" button on my Homepage (see attached picture).

This is totally redundant when you can simply access this in 2 clicks from the taskbar. Why are such cosmetic features forced onto users? Customising my homepage is something I would do once, I don't need it to be slapped on my face every time I reach my home page.

Please advise, this is extremely annoying.

Hi there! I keep having this issue where firefox keeps toggling security.enterprise_roots.enabled to false whenever i close it. Tried adding the security.certerrors.mitm.auto_enable_enterprise_roots Preference and set it to true, but still didn't qork and if i close the browser it's a given i have to go back to about:config to set the preference or i will start to see the typical errors again. The certificate is from adguard and it has worked for quite some time, i cannot explain this sudden behaviour and it seems to be an old bug that i thought was resolved by now. Should i post this in bugzilla?

I must disable popup asking to open link in another app l. I must stay in firefox, without this annoying popup appearing everytime on AliExpress. Even though I choose to never open links in outside apps, it keeps asking. Hell this is so annoying. The proposed solution does not fix it, the only way for me to get rid of the annoying message is to uninstall AliExpress, which I don't want to do, because I have two accounts and must use both for personal purpose. Please enable a way to diable at all this pop up without going to the app, as Must stay in firefox. Sincerely yours, J.M.

Hi, i am on firefox mobile android beta and i am seeing a behaviour that seems weird to me, but maybe i misunderstood something. So essentially pages i opened are showing in homepage, alongside the shortcuts,pinned items, despite having history unchecked. Is this intended? Thanks in advance.
