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 ???

Hi,

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or developers. If you want to leave feedback for developers, you can go to this link. Your feedback gets collected by a team of people who read it and gather data about the most common issues.

You can also file a bug report or feature request. See File a bug report or feature request for Mozilla products for details.

i see that you've been a moderator since 2015. So, you know FF inside and out, right?

1. When will about: config be put back on FF ?

2. How do we delete FF updates that need to be deleted due to their causing problems like constantly crashing? This question of mine seems to be GONE.

3. When will FF export of bookmarks be available on FF ?

4. When will constant refreshing be fixed?

My previous answer above has referral routes for you to raise issues and feedback directly with our developers.

With regards to crashes, first of all clear the cache (not data) in the Android Settings app entry for Firefox for Android. If this does not resolve the issue, enter about:crashes into the address bar and open the latest Socorro link. Copy and paste the address of that page I to a reply to this thread and we can have a look into it.
