The Firefox support site says that downloaded files can be deleted through the downloads menu in Firefox: https://mzl.la/3P8HXEs

The steps say that there should be a three-dot button but mine only shows a "trash" icon that removes the file from Firefox without actually deleting the file. Is this a Firefox big that needs to be reported, or something wrong with my install, or outdated support information?

I wanted to urge you to make a Mozilla email system that does not track us, that is secure, and does not sell our info. I am tired of Google and have been hearing of many unethical things they are doing. It would be nice to have a Mozilla email with the Relay built in. I would even pay for it too. Something like $3-4 per month.

Thanks

On Firefox 109.1.1 (Build #2015927171), on every website I've visited, when I enter full screen, the Android Navigation Bar hides, as I would expect. But when I leave full screen, the Navigation Bar stays hidden, as if I'm still in full screen, requiring me to swipe up to show it. The app will continue this behavior across multiple tabs and on every website, until the app is force-closed and cache cleared.

Using Firefox 109.1.1 (Build #2015927171) on a Samsung Galaxy S22 Running Android 13 with One UI 5.0. No other browser or app shows this behavior. Attached screenshot shows Nav Bar hidden.

On this link if the options are selected, there are two embedded PDFs in two tabs on same page. The firefox Android app downloader randomly gives the option to download only one of the two. I wish to download both the PDFs. Is there a way to stop the firefox from giving download option, but see the embedded PDFs on the page itself. So that we can download it by clicking on the embedded PDFs.

Below are images on expected behaviour of chrome browser, but errorneous behaviour of firefox. Firefox shows option to download the file from first tab that is E-text. But when clicked to download ends up downloading file on the second tab Learn More.

Support is difficult to use because a search inevitably yields the question, which was answered along the lines of "This option is currently being tested in the Nightly build of Firefox for Android, available from the Google Play store." with that response being dated a year or two earlier, and the thread archived. I find this difficult, as it raises the immediate question, "so what happened when it was tested in the nightly build a year and a half ago?"

Is there a way to deal with this? Is there a different approach? It seems support involves entering a query string, and then browsing all previous queries and responses that contain the specified string. Is this indeed the design of the support system? Is there any effort to improve the support system?

There needs to be an option to close all open tabs when the mobile browser app is closed. It's nonsensical to have tabs reopen when app is restarted. Memory on a phone is precious and shouldn't be consumed in this manner.

I was setting up a Firefox Account and apparently entered the incorrect email address, thinking that Firefox would fill it in for me since it's all over my account. Turns out the confirmation code, now needed to proceed with anything, was emailed to: [email address] instead of [email address] which is correct. How can it be corrected? Thanks

What does Firefox/Mozilla know about Android 8 that Adobe, Chrome, DuckDuckGo, Google, and Samsung do not?

This is kind of an inverse support question. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablet running Android 8.1, no System software updates in years. All good until this past week. Suddenly most, but not all, of the apps are crashing. The first one I noticed NOT crashing was Firefox. Another is a ViHealth app which just released a major re-write a few weeks ago. Adobe Acrobat, Chrome, DuckDuckGo browser, "Google", Samsung Memo and Galaxy Store, and others all crash immediately upon opening. All but Memo have been updated in December '22 or January '23.

Why DOES Firefox work when these others don't? Do we know of changes to commonly used source-code libraries that are for Android 13, but not compatible with Android 8? Revisions to permission structures? Anything? Beuhler? Thanks! Puzzled in PA
