Firefox for Mobile needs to sync Collections too.

My wife typically trusts me to make the tech decisions in my household, and is fine with using and supporting Mozilla and Firefox. Overall, she likes the new Mobile Firefox too, as do I.

She's a typical Tab Hoarder kind of user. On her last phone, I introduced her to Collections. Much easier to use and get to than Bookmarks, easy to understand, good at helping her control the immense amount of tabs she otherwise has open. She basically fell in love with the feature.

A few days ago she got a new phone. We still have her old one, but the screen is 1/3 cracks and it no longer holds a charge well. "Well loved", for sure.

Install Firefox on new phone --> sync over her stuff --> all good... Well, wait... Where are her collections with her hundred-or-more tabs in them for various stuff?

Turns out they don't sync?

I've been helping her manually move over the tabs from the collections on her old phone to the new phone, but I feel *extremely* lucky we still have the phone. If she'd lost her phone instead, that would be quite the amount of time she'd spent getting acquainted with and using this feature just to find it doesn't save anywhere.

This was all essentially written as a real-life use-case, for the following plea:

Please, *please* add Collections to what is able to be synced with the Firefox Sync feature.

there seems to be no way to make a screenshot of the full webpage

Hi, I found firefox beta the one and only bnowser on Android where I can change the viewport width and thus look at very wide webpages (e.g. scientific) that are designed for laptops. But how can I make a screenshot of such a webpage? That is, not only capture what is actually on the screen in the moment, but the entire webpage. But I really must do this in Firefox Beta, because if I cannot set the viewport width to somet0ing extrawide, then the website will open in a distorted way. I spent a lot of time going through not only the firefox beta menu, but also the settings and the config about page of firefox beta and I am lost. Googling for an hour, I saw that "firifox light" on Android does have a screenshot icon that provides exacly this functionality. Any ideas why this is not there in firefox beta for Android? Or any ideas for a workaround?

Thanks!!
Linda

Add-on active in temp window but cannot access it

I have Firefox set as my default browser on my Pixel phone running the latest security update from Google. When I click a link that opens in app, it gives me a temporary window/browser for just use with that app. This is how it should work. My problem comes in with my use of NoScript and it doing it's job (often leaving the page unable to load,) but I have no access to the addon to ok any scripts without transferring the whole thing to the primary browser, which to me is self-defeating. I currently have NoScript set to run in both private and regular tabs. Is there a way to access the add-ons from that temporary window browser? OR Is it only running in it because I have it set to run in private tabs as well?

This is as much a question as it is feedback from someone who is running Firefox as my primary browser on Android.

Thanks for your time, Damon

Hello, when i dowload a pdf file with my Samsung A71 and want to open it, i don't get acrobat as a proposition to download it. Instead i get a proposition of applications which are useless for this purpose like garmin connect, stocard etc. I search on the internet but didn't find any solution. I would be grateful for your help as i really would like to stay with firefox instead of using Samsung internet where i don't have this problem.

Hello,

This problem exists for quite some time now. Sometimes when I download a PDF file, i cannot open it in Adobe acrobat via Firefox download "open". When i tap on "open" Firefox says there is no PDF viewer installed or it cant open the file. Although the viewer is installed and sometimes it works as it should. But some PDF files cant be opened. When I access them through my file manager i can open them without any problem.

Firefox Daylight on an up to date Samsung S10e. But same problem on Xiaomi Mi9 SE or Galaxy Tab S6 lite.

When one opens a new tab the animated purple switch button shows up for a moment. But it only works if you click on the word switch at the right side of the button. This can be awkward when holding the phone with the left hand on a big screen.


It would be good if you could press on the middle of the purple button. This way or doesn't matter which button you use.

My settings for ETP have always been set on "STRICT" and I have never listed any sites/url in my "Exception" list. With that being said, the attached screenshots show I allowed this particular site to track me which I've never allowed. My question is: Who allowed the site to track me? How does something like this occur without my knowledge or how are my ETP settings being changed without my knowledge?? This has happened previously and I enquired the community about it but the issue was never resolved. I'll say again, I've never changed my ETP settings from "STRICT" nor have I ever listed any site in the "EXCEPTION" list. Thank you in advance for your help.

So I'm looking for a smoother way to migrate Firefox data when switching phones. I love the collections function, would love to see this added to account sync. Is it possible to save these to account? Also, for synced tabs, would be extremely helpful to select multiple tabs to open at a time. One by one gets old for 200+ tabs. Any other ideas?
