On the moble browser for android I can't get websites to change from being in dark mode. I have made sure dark mode is off on the browser and the system. I have tested the same sites on other browsers to make sure it was not the sites. The browser and system are up to date.

As the title says, is it possible for reader view to follow the system's light/dark mode?

Currently, I can manually choose white on black, sepia, or black on white. That's great, though I'd prefer if the black/white or white/black would switch according to whether the system is in light or dark mode.

Apart from that, thanks for Firefox, I love it!

Starting last week, or earlier, Firefox in my iPhone renders some websites in night mode colours. This seems most frequent in sites accessed by Google. I have tried turning night mode on and off in as many places as I can find, without improving the situation.

After installing Firefox for android I noticed that webpages were appearing very washed out, colours faded, blacks rendered as grey etc. It seems similar to this issue https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1329680 Trying the resolution there I noticed that about:config just loads as a blank page.

The issue is dependent on the theme active when tab was created. For example if the browser is in light theme and a tab is created, then you change to dark mode, pages will continue to render vibrant until a new tab is created. Conversely changing to light mode pages will remain faded until a new tab is created.

This behavior is also present if the Theme is set to follow OS if OS dark pages are faded, if OS light pages appear normal.

The android version of firefox should follow the "system" for its auto dark mode instead of following the "battery saver". Just like chrome and other chromium browsers do.

The major advantage this gives is that it allows even older android version users to experience auto dark mode, since there are ways for them to initiate system wide dark mode through 3rd party apps (like this one for example: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=systems.maju.darkmode&hl=en&gl=US) But since Firefox follows battery saver, this never works on android version lower than 10.

Therefore, I'd like to request the developers to implement the uato dark mode in firefox android to follow the system instead of the battery saver status.

How to add speed dials in homepage and URL bar on Firefox Android?

I access some sites instantly like alternative search engines, social media, news sites, messages and others so need them on homepage of browser (also new tab like Chrome otherwise speed dials won't work).

But in Firefox Android and Chromebooks, I can't find a way to have done sites as speed dials like Edge browser, Samsung browser, cococ browser, soul browser, mask browser, kiwi browser, Brave browser, Vivaldi browser, and Opera browsers among others. Only Firefox is light years backward despite being veteran.

Humbly requesting this feature urgently as usability is zero when using Firefox browsers and I have to go back to one of the browsers mentioned in that case.

Hello! Thank you for your help! I want to install my personalized version of startpage as the common search engine on my android mobile.

This is my personalized search string: https://www.startpage.com/do/mypage.pl?prfe=88c786572599bb1107d3c74eaec3b3ca5076330f9b0ee54884a22b7a784d2b0a689bbc9b7a89edd7438b53c487ee2e4e628759948e78c9e03a2a82c5107f459c595a56be6ab8c7def9ac63f6

But it is not possible!

On the mozilla helppage it says (translated from german): https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/suchmaschinen-verwalten-firefox-android#w_hinzufugen-einer-zusatzlichen-vordefinierten-suchmaschine

"If the entered Internet address (URL) of the search string is invalid, an error message is displayed to help you enter a valid Internet address. Important: Make sure that you replace the search string with the placeholder "%s", for example:

https://www.google.com/search?q=%s https://www.startpage.com/sp/search?q=%s https://search.brave.com/search?q=%s https://www.ecosia.org/search?q=%s


But as you can see, in my personalized search string there is no placeholder! What to do to install nevertheless my personalized version of the startpage search string as the common search engine on my android mobile?

Thank´s a lot

Hello.

Every time I click on my shortcuts, a new tab opens.  Opened tabs accumulate during the day and cause the browser to slow down.
Is it possible for me to open shortcuts on the same page without opening different tabs?
For example: When I click on the twitter shortcut from the login page while on the Facebook page, is it possible to enter Twitter on the same page without opening a new tab?

When I use Firefox on my iphone, and I leave it open to open a different app, when I return to Firefox the web page has been hidden and it offers the option for me to "jump back in" all of 10-20 seconds later! This is especially annoying when I'm making a donation through Paypal or another option that uses secondary verification. First I'm on the website for the organization I'm donating to. I leave that page to open Paypal, Then I return to Firefox to see the website I just left open, I have to"jump back in" & re-select the Organization's page, Then Paypal wants to send a verification code, so I do that, which involves going to my notifications, & Then I go back to the Organization's page finish the donation, but Firefox has hidden the page AGAIN. So to finish the donation I have to once again re-select the web page from "jump back in". It's Not Fun. ieeaah!
