hello,

I've been using Firefox for what seems like decades and am an ardent supporter of Mozilla (also used Thunderbird for years) but have been really struggling with the recent update ("revamp") for weeks now. Since 81.1.1 came (I think, I didn't ask for this upgrade, only asked for 80.1.3 I think it was), it's been almost unuseable and seems to get worse every day.

I have a Blackberry PRIV which is an Android (6.0.1). I have never had any trouble with it using the old Firefox. I have no trouble with Firefox on my laptop with the same Wi-Fi and everything else the same except the laptop is running Ff 78.0.2 4-bit.

Firefox on my phone is now not just slow, it stops completely at about 1/4 of the rainbow bar on every search. ... It used to work for the first search or two in the morning, but since it updated itself to 81.1.1 , I don't even get a single search before it stops working.

Like another user who wrote in with the same problem on September 18th and has had no replies, I can use Chrome and it *is* "lightning fast" as the new Firefox was supposed to be. I've done everything I can think of ... I thought I'd solved the problem with the Ff beta but it soon ground to a halt, too.

I hope someone can put the clues together on this one ... I am not going to delete Firefox until I know it is completely hopeless.

many thanks for any hints, filterfeeder

Ever since the revamp I have a lot of trouble with typing a search phrase in the address bar. After hitting enter, nothing happens. Hitting the magnifying glass: nothing. Selecting an alternate engine: nothing.

I have not noticed a definite pattern, but I want to say that it is more frequently occurring when I'm searching from a previously-opened tab (maybe something to do with trying to search from a tab that never fully opened? Just a guess.) It is not a connection problem- I switch to chrome: no problems. I want to continue using firefox, so I am writing this, but it is annoying enough that I will be forced to uninstall and use another browser if the problem persists. Good luck folks, I support Mozilla's mission and want y'all to continue to succeed

Firefox migration to Firefox for Android Beta on the SAME DEVICE -- bookmarks don't follow

Hello,

I just noticed & downloaded Firefox for Android Beta 81.1.0-beta.2 as I have been at my wits' end these past few days with the recent upgrade, Firefox 80.1.2 (which nearly always stalls with a blank white page)

Now I need my bookmarks so that I can work. They're all over on Ff 80.1.2 I have hundreds probably. Please help! I would like to delete the non-functioning Firefox 80.1.2 and throw in my lot with the beta version.

Thank you for any help.

(It makes me wonder how long I've been using a version of Firefox not intended for Android .... Can anyone tell me?)

After upgrading to Firefox Daylight, I'm experiencing an issue I saw a long time ago already:

I can load and navigate websites for a while, but at some point no page will load any more. The loading progress bar is stuck at about ⅓, and Firefox just does nothing.

Navigating back, opening bookmarks or new or old tabs all present the same issue.

When I close Firefox by swiping away it's window and restart it, sometimes it fixes the issue, but only for a while. I also tried clearing Cache, which didn't change anything either.

Opening the menu and settings works. about: addresses don't seem to work, about:home shows "invalid address".

I'm on Android 6, Firefox 81.1.1

Is there any way to choose which apps will be used when clicking on "translate" or "dictionary" in the context menu (long press on a word on a website) on Android?

Right now clicking on "translate" always opens Google Translator (I even only see the translate button when the Google Translator app is installed) and "dictionary" opens a seemingly pre-installed dictionary on my Samsung Galaxy S10 ( Android 10) - on my older Samsung Tab S2 (Android 7) I do not see the translate button at all (I tried installing a couple of dictionary apps from the Play Store).

How do I make my tabs look like they did before with 2 rows and the newest tab opening on the bottom on my Android phone.

And ... How do i get rid of the collection option, or DO I HAVE AN OPTION?

And .... Why do developers feel they must fix something that's not broken?

As mentioned in [1], Firefox "Fennec" has reached "end of support" (Version 68.11.0 is the latest you can get). Its successor is Firefox Daylight (codename "Fenix"). But I can't find a place at Mozillas webservices, where I can download an APK to install Firefox Fenix on my Android mobile device.

Using Google Play is no option to me, since I want to run a privacy friendly mobile device without any Google services. Privacy is my main reason, why I would like to use Firefox on my mobile device.

@Mozilla: Please provide such an APK download location for Firefox Daylight (Fenix), as you did with Firefox Fennec!

There is already a discussion about this topic in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293461, but this topic is about "Fennec APK download" and is marked as "solved", since a "Fennec APK downloads" had been provided. And there is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293483, talking about "Fennec nightly APKs".

Using https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/releases to download APKs seems to be a bit unreliable, since not every build has attached APKs.

So I start this new question, in order to find a solution for Firefox Daylight (Fenix) APK downloads.

Thanks you!
