I've got a new phone and again Firefox on Android is suggesting sites in the address bar I've never been to. I visited bostours.com.au and Webmd com, a healthcare website is one and every time I install Firefox on a phone this site appears as a suggestion. Travel and Tours vs Healthcare; what is the connection? NationalGeographic com is another and there are others as well. I've never been to these sites on either phone. They aren't being synched from elsewhere as sites I've been to aren't being suggested like bostours

Android Profiling

Why has my otherwise serviceable Firefox for Android suddenly begun redirecting my input of "nnnnn.com" to "https://www.nnnnn.com/sa/ar/Home.page.com" ; forcing me to edit the url to include

" ... /us/en/ ... " in order to reach the English language website? 

I occasionally research Arabic language websites and those are rarely if ever Saudi Arabian as the redirect imposes. Update: Troubleshooting I did on Firefox Android shows that my issue is only in Private Mode. Typing the affected URL in regular mode gets me to the correct US English home page with no redirect to the Arabian version.

I own an S23 and I'd like to know if there's a way to make the browser suggestions fit on the screen. I've added two images to help explain what's going on. The first image shows Firefox, where the suggestion doesn't fit on the screen, whereas on Brave, if the suggestion is too long, it adjusts to the space. Thanks.

What is the significance of a different browser when the search engine is Google anyway? And if I use a search engine other than Google, I will lose the benefits of Google Maps, the Google keyboard (for example, entering through a microphone) Basically, Google has a monopoly. Is that so?!

From the image below, I asked a question and the results are there. I've tried this on my tablet as well, getting the exact sane results, no matter what I put in the search results.

However, I choose Google as the search engine (as you can see from the image below), while Firefox still being the main browser and I got results to the question below.

What is happening with your browser or duckduckgo search engine? In all my years of using these platforms, I've never had this issue. Yes, I'm Android user and haven't changed any devices. My setup is the sane on all my devices.

I want my context menu in Firefox for Android to be as clean as possible. But there are annoying actions in it: Search in Edge and "Create Note" that runs Microsoft Edge and Microsoft OneDrive respectively. I need these apps from time to time so I don't want to uninstall them. Is there a way to turn off this integration between Firefox and Microsoft-related apps?

Thanks.

Hi, I'm having issues with my Google search results page. It used to be very clean looking and mainly only showing the results of whatever I searched. Today though, I searched something and now the Google results are first showing Reddit answers, what others have asked, discussions and forums, what others have searched, short videos, etc. I have to scroll really far down just to get some normal search results. How can I fix this? Call me old school but I want the classic version back. Please help, I don't want to switch browsers. I've been using Firefox nearly since it's launch, since StumbleUpon days. Yeah!!! If you know, you know. Thanks!

I just did a Google image search on my pixel 8 and saw that all the image results were forced to "fit width" so I can only really see 1 result at a time. I have the "Google Search Fixer" installed and dialsabling it returns the image search view to gallery. But when I enable to addon it goes back to that "ft to wish" view.

I've looked through the options and tried searching for similar problems/solutions and found nothing. How do I return my Google image search view to gallery? It's really obnoxious and frustration to only be able to see 1 image at a time when searching.

I keep trying Firefox browser once in a while for many reasons such a giving it a try to see the improvements, to give it a chance to become my daily driving browser but small niggles such as below doesn't give confidence to make it a default browser.

In website gsmarena.com on mobile Firefox browser when you type in search field, while website tried to dynamically show all matching phone models to a letter that you just typed, browser and keyboard just starts to lag and freeze before it can accept any further input of letter typing. Don't have this issue with other browsers.

in any other open tab, auto-hide addressbar/toolbar properly goes into hiding as soon as i begin scrolling, portrait or landscape.

ONLY IN AN ABOUT:CONFIG TAB, auto-hide addressbar/toolbar requires that i 1) scroll all the way to end of page and then 2) vigorously & multiply scroll down, through the stuck bar. any upward scroll & i have to start from scratch. portrait & landscape.

this Android alpha cancer has metastacized to Android beta. danged annoying.
