I'm well aware that I can chose a download manager when downloading a file, but, as I end up downloading files very often and typically one after the other it can get particularly annoying.

Is it possible to set a default download manager so I don't have to interact with a popup all the time, and, if no such option exists will one be implemented in the future?

I originally was able to create the home page shortcut to Piped with Chrome, but the shortcut launched Chrome, even though Firefox is my default browser?

Piped [https://piped.kavin.rocks/https://pip.../|Piped]

So I deleted the shortcut. Now, Chrome no longer even offers me the option to "Add to Home Screen" from the Piped page, but it still does for other sites. Within Chrome, It now offers me the option to open the page in Firefox, even if I make Chrome the default browser.

How can I get a shortcut to Piped on my home page that will open in Firefox?

Currently using Firefox Nightly version 111.0a1 for Android now when trying to open a link in another app it always shows a popup to confirm.

This was not present in previous releases and I don't know if there is a way to prevent this popup as it makes it uncomfortable. Is there an option I may be missing to disable this feature? If not, could an option like this be introduced?

Thanks and regards

It seems like such a simple thing to ask. I want to be able to manually create a couple shortcuts to load my favorite web pages. The whole point of a shortcut is to avoid clutter, and streamline the process of using your favorite websites, right?

I manually add three shortcuts to my "firefox home screen". Google, Google news, and another page that is hosted on my local network. That's it. I don't want recommended sites, affiliate links, suggestions, or sites from my history clogging up my very short list of favorite website shortcuts. For this reason I configured the home screen to ONLY show "Shortcuts". Sponsored shortcuts, jump back in, recent bookmarks, recently visited, and pocket are all turned OFF. Still, I sometimes get new shortcuts to other sites I have visited added to my home screen (without the pin icon) randomly. Some sites that I visit sometimes appear there....but not always. Just randomly. If I wanted to have my history appear in shortcuts I supposed I would check the option to show recently visited sites...but I don't. Why would I want shortcuts added for random sites I have visited when I could just look at my history? If every site I visit has the potential to be added to my shortcuts randomly, how does that make using shortcuts a convenience? It doesn't seem to matter what I want because Firefox just does it anyway....sometimes....

The only way to remove these random automatic shortcuts is to remove them from my history individually or clear my entire history. This means I'm constantly fighting to keep these randomly created shortcuts at bay. I don't want to necessarily remove sites from my history, I just don't want them to randomly auto appear on my manually curated list of shortcuts.

I attempted to work around this issue by using the "Add to my Home Screen" option. I could just have shortcuts on my android home screen instead of the Firefox browser home screen. Then I can turn off the shortcuts option under "customize my home screen" entirely. Unfortunately this works fine for some sites, but for others that option is replaced with "Install" instead. I assume this is meant to install the app associated with that domain. I don't want to install the Google News app or I would do so in the app store, not with my non-google web browser. That's a moot point though because tapping on "install" doesn't install anything anyway, but rather it does the same exact thing that "Add to my Home Screen" does. It adds a shortcut to my home screen. Great! Except the problem now is that when I use that home screen shortcut, all of the Firefox UI breaks (Incidentally this also happens to the Brave Browser as well). I have no address bar, no menus, no tabs. It's as if I'm looking at the Google News app instead of a page in Firefox. I do not have the Google News app installed, so I know that is not the case.

I have posted comments about this in the google play store firefox page, and even emailed developers. The only response I got was a confusing explanation that this feature was added to mirror the functionality of the desktop browser. Either I didn't explain my problem well enough or they didn't read my explanation. This is why I posting yet again in another place, and I'm trying to be very detailed in my explanation so there is no misunderstanding my issue.

I am a huge advocate for Firefox. I recommend it to everyone and I have been using it personally for decades. Before there was even a Chrome! So imagine how painful it is for me to be trying out Brave or even Samsung's "Internet" to see if they are viable alternatives to Firefox. It doesn't seem like I'm asking for something unreasonable... I just want a few icons on my screen that I can tap on to open my favorite web pages. I don't care if it's on the android home screen or the Firefox home screen, although I should be able to choose either or both. Unfortunately neither method seems to work without bugging out.

Again, I'm a big FF advocate. I would love to see you back on top instead of having a 1% market share....but I can hardly sympathize with your plight when what should be basic functionality is not working correctly.

Please make it so that random sites that I visit aren't added to shortcuts, at least unless I have enabled "recent" options. Please make it so that I can add ANY website to my android home screen, without seeing the confusing alternative choice, "Install". Please make it so that websites cannot interfere with the Firefox UI. If I am indeed using Firefox to view a page, then I should at all times have the UI available. I should always have access to the basic functionality of a browser, such as stop, reload, bookmarks, history, help, about, etc.

Is there a way to have Firefox respond/be the default for the Google Assistant instead of Chrome?

Are there any other voiced activated assistants that can do this?

Can I use Bixby like Google Assistant, and have these things done.

I would also like all home page shortcuts to open Firefox. even those that were placed there by Chrome.

About:config simply shows me a blank screen.

I need to customize a few settings and I presently cannot. This question marks this as answered but the answer is talking about a solution to the specific reason they were trying to access about:config, not why they cannot access it. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1373286

Others say to use the nightly build, which I don't want. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1302626

What's the deal? I've spent an hour or so now looking this up and haven't found anything.

How to add speed dials in homepage and URL bar on Firefox Android?

I access some sites instantly like alternative search engines, social media, news sites, messages and others so need them on homepage of browser (also new tab like Chrome otherwise speed dials won't work).

But in Firefox Android and Chromebooks, I can't find a way to have done sites as speed dials like Edge browser, Samsung browser, cococ browser, soul browser, mask browser, kiwi browser, Brave browser, Vivaldi browser, and Opera browsers among others. Only Firefox is light years backward despite being veteran.

Humbly requesting this feature urgently as usability is zero when using Firefox browsers and I have to go back to one of the browsers mentioned in that case.

Hello,

My name is Nyayesh Abdollahi and I have a suggestion for Firefox; I've earlier been unable to access an account I created because the e-mail connected to it had been deleten.

This seems to me a proper weakness in Firefox and perhaps should be ameliorated...?

I just wanted to let you know this because I do think it's the best browser around.

If the problem has already been adressed, my apologies.

Kind regards, Nyayesh Abdollahi

Why does Firefox purposely choose to alienate their Android users by not allowing them to choose their own home screen. The Firefox web browser on Windows does.

As much as I distrust Google as a company and avoid using their products (as much as convenietly possible), I am very comfortable using their search engine and comfortable seeing a Google homepage with the Google search bar.

Firefox doesn't even give me the courtesy to: 1) know or understand which search engine I am using when I am on the "forced" Firefox homepage, or 2) set my own homepage. Therefore, I have to ensure the cursor is in the "search/web address" bar, start typing "google", and hit enter in order to get to the familiar Google homepage of which I am comfortable. I hate that Firefox forces me to do that!

Otherwise, I like using the Firefox browser as an alternative to Google. Nonetheless, it's your company and you can do what you like, but as soon as I come across an alternative browser that allows me to adjust it's settings to my preferences, it's adios MFr's to Firefox.

FYI, I would LOVE to meet the decision maker at Mozilla that OK'd this change and listen to him/her/they hem, haw and double-speak through their ridiculous justification. Another thing, while I'm at it.... Exactly, when did it become a better idea for companies (challenging the industry leader) to alienate their users?
