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?

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

Hello

I am writing to report a problem with the context menu in Firefox for Android. I am very dissatisfied with how it is designed and I would like to have more control over it.

First of all, there are too many options from other apps that I do not use, which clearly take up space and I want to remove them, but I cannot. They are irrelevant to my browsing experience and they clutter the menu.

Secondly, I do not like that despite the bulkiness of the context menu, it only displays 2-3 items, and to get to the one I need, I have to scroll through the menu several times, which is extremely inconvenient. For instance, I often want to copy text, but this option is hidden at the bottom of the menu. It would be much easier if it were visible at the top or have the ability to build the context menu for my needs.

In other words, there is a bulky and inconvenient menu, which also has unnecessary and annoying options that I cannot do anything about, because apparently, the ability to customize and change the context menu is removed in the Android version.

There are 226 questions that came up when I searched for "about: config". A lot of users have requested that "aboutconfig" be an option for users who want to solve some of their own problems. I'm not a developer and find that i can research and follow instructions to resolve and/or personalize FF using it.

So, what do we as users need to do to impress this upon developers to lut it back on FF android, heck, on all of the apps!

If someone fools around with it and creates their own issues, thats not on y'all ! They can reinstall or go back to correct, etc. PUT A WARNING LABEL ON IT if you need to. From what I've read, thats the main reason it was removed.

Why punish responsible users for those who aren't ????

How do we impress this upon FF ???

For the love of God allow Android users to disable this unending torrent of push notification requests for *all* websites!

You have it for the desktop, you could disable it in about:config if you hadn't also disabled that for Android users. Please fix.

Icons and Installed Web Sites Disappear on Reboot

Hello Mozilla,

I've seen this posted before, but no answers. I have Android 11, and recently, when I do a reboot, or power down the device entirely and power it back up, all the Installed Web Sites and "Add to my Home Screen" icons disappear.

I do have Firefox to remove all history upon exit, but that history should not include installed bookmarks and "Add to my Home Screen" options.

Is this a known issue? Is there a workaround other than switching off this setting? Is there a logged feature or bug request to handle this properly?

Thanks,

Larry

I just opened up Firefox on Android today and suddenly when trying to use autofill to visit my typical sites, it's changed what pops up first to very popular sites (a good chunk of which I don't frequent); microsoft.com instead of marvelousnews.com, office.com instead of oafe.com, stackoverflow.com instead of seibertron.com, twitter.com instead of toyark.com, bing.com instead of brickset.com, etc. I tried looking in the Search settings to see if something had been clicked on that wasn't before, but I couldn't find any culprit that actually changed this.

I normally have Dark Mode always enabled.

This week it's constantly switching to "Follow Device Theme" which then makes it the Light theme.

Interestingly, my phone's theme is also set to Dark mode so the Follow setting doesn't appear to work.

Thanks!

Installation fails for Yomichan add-on on Nightly for Android

I'm trying to get Yomichan by FooSoft to install on Nightly for Android (v117.0a1) to no success. Here's what I've tried:

  1. 1. Add Yomichan to a custom add-on collection.
  2. 2. Go to the add-on manager and tap on install.
  3. 3. A little toast that says "Failed to install Yomichan" comes up instantly (see screenshot attached). Nothing is even downloaded.

Notes and information:

  • a. The development of Yomichan has ceased and the version on AMO is behind by 3 years (June 4, 2020).
  • b. The latest version of Yomichan (October 23, 2022) is only available as an XPI file on the add-on developer's GitHub page. Unfortunately, it is not possible to install add-ons from XPI files on Nightly for Android, so I have no idea if this version would work on Nightly for Android.
  • c. Another user (Occupied Octopus) uploaded a rebranded version of Yomichan's latest release in 'note b' called "KiYomi" to AMO. Unfortunately, installation fails on Nightly for Android too, with the same results as in the screenshot after attempting to install it.
  • d. Installation of other add-ons (e.g. uBlock Origin, SingleFile) succeeds.

Hello,

I'm fairly new to using a smart phone; I've had one for a little over a year. Just like on my laptop, I enjoy being able to use Firefox Mobile and appreciate setting up shortcuts to my Android Home Screen. I haven't set one for some time now and am running into problems doing that now. I've discovered that when I now try to set one, it only goes to my Firefox Home Screen, not my Android home screen. What's up with that?

Also, on my Firefox home screen, my Shortcut list not only has my Android Home Screen shortcuts but also many Bookmarks that I don't necessarily want shortcuts to. How do I clean up this list?

While I'm at it, what are Collections?

Thanks, Andre'a

If I visit a website that supports OpenSearch, how do I add it as a search engine?

The article Use gestures in Firefox for Android says I can long tap on a Web Address to add a site as a search engine: however on Android 10 this only gives me the standard "Open", "Cut", "Copy", "Paste", "Share", and "Read aloud".

Manage my default search engines in Firefox for Android has a section on adding a search engine, but it is cumbersome (manually adding the URL and "%s" for the query string). Plus it then lacks useful features of the OpenSearch standard, e.g. displaying an icon.

When the "Google Search Fixer" addon is installed and the "Pull to refresh" gesture is enabled, I am not able to freely scroll up on the search results page. After scrolling animation finishes, if I try to scroll up, the browser thinks that I want to refresh the page, therefore the input is sank.
