Dearest creators, Firefox for Android have a bothering issue. In any Android phone while listening directly from SoundCloud site not from app, while only in background the sound of the music is clipped and sometimes interrupted. I only use Firefox and also as a music player and it's perfect, but lately I have found that SoundCloud have problems with audio rendering while (in my case only) Firefox is in background. Also for this site cannot be applied any sound equalizer compared to any other YT or online radio. Please fix this issue... You're the best!

Both FF nightly and FF beta are test software and seem to duplicates. Why not just have one test browser?

As mentioned in [1], Firefox "Fennec" has reached "end of support" (Version 68.11.0 is the latest you can get). Its successor is Firefox Daylight (codename "Fenix"). But I can't find a place at Mozillas webservices, where I can download an APK to install Firefox Fenix on my Android mobile device.

Using Google Play is no option to me, since I want to run a privacy friendly mobile device without any Google services. Privacy is my main reason, why I would like to use Firefox on my mobile device.

@Mozilla: Please provide such an APK download location for Firefox Daylight (Fenix), as you did with Firefox Fennec!

There is already a discussion about this topic in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293461, but this topic is about "Fennec APK download" and is marked as "solved", since a "Fennec APK downloads" had been provided. And there is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293483, talking about "Fennec nightly APKs".

Using https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/releases to download APKs seems to be a bit unreliable, since not every build has attached APKs.

So I start this new question, in order to find a solution for Firefox Daylight (Fenix) APK downloads.

Thanks you!

I'm not sure why Firefox still bothers to call tabs, "tabs". A tab was originally called that because of its similarity to a filing cabinet's physical tabs where you can see the tab markers and use your thumb to quickly select one. As far as I can see Firefox for Android no longer has tabs. There's no tab bar (and even the URL bar is auto-hidden) and to see the 'tabs' you have to drag down, then select a button and then flip your brain from expecting to see a horizontal row of tabs to a vertical list of them. Similarly, to create a new tab used to involve taping on a plus sign in the same place, right next to the other tabs in the bar. Now, to make a new one you have to redirect your attention from the top of the screen (where tabs have always beenl to a plus sign down the bottom. This smacks of just changing things for the hell of it.

So.... The big ask..... is there any way to get back to the system and layout I'm used to and that I still use without a moment's though when I use Chrome? (Which I'd still rather not do all the time...). I'd like my tabs back please.

I am not sure this is the right forum to be asking all of the questions below but .. I am starting here and will be guided by your feedback if only some questions can be answered here.

All my questions pertain to Firefox Nightly on Android. 101.0a1 (Build #2015874793) It is my hope that the Q&A might help other users of Firefox Nightly on Android.

  1. (generic) Where will I find discussion of or documentation (specifications, user manual, usage notes, self-documenting source code, etc.) for the various Firefox settings accessible via about:config ?
  2. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.volume_scale setting?
  3. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.default_volume setting?
  4. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled setting?
  5. (generic) Is it reasonable to expect that a browser be able to determine either the RMS or Peak loudness of the src for a media element and mute (i.e. set ~.volume=0) if that loudness is above some user specified level? For example:
    • Might there be metadata within the file header that describes loudness just as there is metadata that describes duration?
    • Might parsing just the first 3-5 seconds of the file be sufficiently manageable to estimate loudness without grossly impacting page load-time or grossly taxing the CPU?
    • Might the default action be to set ~.volume=0 until such time as the browser has parsed the entire src to determine actual RMS loudness .. and only then restore ~.volume to user-prescribed maximum permitted volume iff RMS loudness is below a user prescribed threshold? (the bigger the file the longer that media is muted before it can be potentially unmuted!)

Thank you, in advance, for any time you spend responding to my questions. I am especially appreciative of links that I can follow to find answers for myself rather than being spoon-fed answers on a specific case by case basis.

Greetings and thank you for your time. I am so tired of every update changing how Firefox Android handles video and audio file types ~ MIMEs. I want a permanent setting to propting us , to ask us what I want to do when we click on a video or audio link. Maybe everyone else just wants to play it. But I don't and I'm sure I'm not alone. -_-

It would be wonderful if Firefox Android would have the same answers as Firefox for desktop specifically: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file#w_download-actions

Maybe I'm not searching correctly but I spent hours searching for a solution before posting this question. Also for previous FFA versions this question is always being asked after every update! WHEN will we as a community stop disabling the ability to control what we do with audio and video links! -_-

Please do not suggest a third-party plugin when this is an innate browser function!

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Firefox reports Incorrect resolution in mobile and desktop mode

while real screen resolution is QHD firefox in both modes reports 980 x 511 while for mobile mode this can be somewhat OK (but it is 3x from screen resolution)

for desktop mode it is completely incorrect and sites displayed in very wrong way. How to make firefox to report correct screen resolution in desktop mode?

Google Chrome reports incorrect but somewhat usable 1400x900 which is about 1.7x not 3x like firefox seen on dev.jeffersonscher.com/resolution.html

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.

Until about a week ago sync worked fine to my knowledge and I could look at saved logins on my Note 8 which were sync'd with my W10 desktop. Now FF sync on Note 8 will NOT update and show me saved logins and passwords, pressing the button does NOTHING. It doesn't even open a new page, absolutely nothing. My bookmarks will sync with desktop but NOT passwords/logins.

It is weird because when I go to a website and login, my Note8 does show suggested logins like it always has but in FF you cannot look at saved logins any longer?

Also noticed that under Note 8 accounts and backup, FF is NOT even listed as an account and I thought it used to be listed there.

I know that when I changed FF pw on my Note 8 it deleted the password/logins. But seeing as how they are still showing up on my desktop, obviously they are still saved in FF

Hi,

As one of what seems to be the majority of users that totally despise the horror that is the new version and refuse to use it. What is the best APK version and source to get.

After deleting FF entirely from Android I have succumbed to reinstalling APK68.1.1 as the other browsers, not as bad as new FF, were still poor. Now FF is withdrawing support for 68 so I need to dare a little newer. The update immediately before the new version also messed up the browsing language i.e. using the language of the country you are in (I'm an expat, I can speak the language but cannot read the script), the old fixes for this no longer work.

Your best recommendations please.
