For awhile now since I last updated the android app it's started freezing after awhile when I try to open a new tab or type in the address bar. Sometimes it looks like it's opening a new tab but it's just a duplicate of a different tab then it freezes. Restarting the app makes it work again but it won't remember the last thing I was doing and the history shows up entirely blank. Even closing the app before it freezes it won't remember what I just had open

Noticed my phone having terrible battery life, from battery usage you can see that Firefox is highly likely one of the main culprits. I have observed the same over a few days on the last two Firefox builds. It seems that it's not respecting the "Restricted" battery usage in Android (or Android is not restricting it, I have no idea), but you can see today's battery usage linked here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/pMByjqq6Q5GigcQu8

The official instructions say to put a bookmark in a folder click on three dots, click to edit, then click on either a particular folder or some non-existent generic folder button. In my version of android Firefox, neither alternative is possible. If I go from the edit bookmark screen to the preceding general screen (where the folders are listed) and click on a folder, both happens, the bookmark is not transferred to the folder. As for the second, one is told to open the edit function and then click on the folder button. But there is no folder button. How to do it? I'm running android 14 on a Galaxy A14.

Need to Create Url (shortcut) on phone's screen (home screen), NOT Firefox's Homepage. This is available UNLESS website has an App. Now only Install App is available. I'm not installing another beeping app when I just need a homepage to a URL. Which reveals another problem with Firefox is homepage, it does not allow you to choose a set URL as your opening homepage. As I do not want firefoxes fabricated homepage. I currently have to use a third party URL home screen and Android shortcut editor to work around this Firefox created fail.

My phone is hacked through my formal email,the email is disabled already,the hacker of my email used another email for my recovery which I don't have access to. The hacker has been remotely controlling my phone since August and I haven't had my privacy. The encrypted files on my phone and all the legal made on my phone was done by the hacker because the hacked email is my business email which I puts all my data into. They hacked the email,used the email for frauds and encrypted the email and make it look like I am the one did it. Please safe me from the hacker please. When I signed up new email,the same thing keep happening. It's frustrating and stressful not to have a privacy. I am not working under any organization,I am self employed and I am from Nigeria. Am a priest,a guidance counselor and a business man. I am a family man, married with a kid. Please help me Mozilla. You have been helping me, please continue helping me and help me fully please. I have deleted the encrypted files but it will still comes back but these are the what I saw on my phone settings which I know that is not normal.

What is the best way to kick hackers off of my devices. Ì have a VPN and Microsoft defender. I'm so tired of them. They change my emails into Chinese, the GG ey won't let emails come thru till the next day. My stupid bank sends me email statements. I've told them not to. Lost $700 in Nov.
