Over the last 3 days, I've been unable to turn off the safe search option using Google as the search engine.

I get a message saying Safe search is locked.

This applies whether I'm signed in to Google or not, but doesn't occur in the chrome app for android.

I tried clearing cache, cookies & data etc to no avail.

So I completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox yesterday which worked fine, however I've noticed the locked safe search filter is back on today.

Any thoughts?

Hello! I've been using Firefox since forever but never thought about using the sync feature until now. On laptop, when I press "sync now", a little spinning wheel appears for some seconds, then disappears. I take this means it has synced. On my android phone (Android 10 - phone's a Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite), however, I seem to have encountered a bug. I connected the two devices together using the QR code and following the instructions, and in fact the phone appears in the connected devices on the laptop version of Firefox. However, when I open Firefox on Android and go to my Account Settings, under "Synchronise now" it says "Last synchronised: never", and tapping it prompts absolutely nothing. No animation, no popup, no phone lagging, no sign it has received any command. If I try going in the synced tabs section (near the private tabs one), there is a big Sync button on the bottom right - pressing it causes it to say "Synchronising..." for about 5 minutes or more, but once it's done, nothing happens, and it keeps saying last sync was never. If possible I'd like not to re-install the app as I have a lot of tabs that I don't want to currently lose.

This behavior can also be observed in Youtube, for example. After exiting the full screen, the Youtube search bar is no longer visible. It reappears when you rotate the device and sometimes also when you scroll down or zoom in and out. Unfortunately, this does not work on websites that are not scrollable. There the hidden content (mostly the header) is only visible again after rotating the device (reloading has no effect). This seems to be a similiar bug: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303054 or this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20636580/firefox-for-android-address-bar-overlaps-content-is-there-a-solution On my Android tablet, first the Android navigation bar overlaps the website and then after a fullscreen and fullscreen exit, the address bar overlaps instead. It would be nice if these "address bar overlaps content" or "navigation bar overlaps content" bugs could be permanently fixed, especially since I have not found a way to work around the bug through javascript.

i can't don't remember seeing them logo page before but maybe it's new.. just thought I'd bring it up. Same on my other devices too, beta or stable , didn't matter.

Application Basics

I've seen other references in the about pages which seem to imply i'm using a nightly build in addition to the logo..

Command + F has suddenly stopped working. Other command functions (e.g., command + L) continue to work as expected, including cut/copy/paste. But command + F simply does not work (going to the menu and selecting the manually selecting the magnifying glass also still works, so it’s not something systemic with the search window, i wouldn’t think).

I posted a message on the App Store indicating the situation, and received a reply from the dev asking me to post my “report” here - not sure if this qualifies, though.

Is there a way to have Firefox respond/be the default for the Google Assistant instead of Chrome?

Are there any other voiced activated assistants that can do this?

Can I use Bixby like Google Assistant, and have these things done.

I would also like all home page shortcuts to open Firefox. even those that were placed there by Chrome.

I always use Firefox mobile and Firefox Sync is always enabled.

My phone is dying and I need to rescue my Firefox browsing session : It contains thousands of tabs and collections of even more tabs (it built up because I never found a way to transfer these reliably).

A tab has a history, so back and forward pages, I need the full history of the tabs! Firefox Sync doesn't transfer these!

Firefox sync transferred 2300 tabs, but it seems that this set is incomplete as there is a large chunk of tabs missing, it's probably a thousand more. I restored these on Firefox desktop in a normal PC Firefox profile, they don't contain tab history as far as I can tell.

I also used collections in an attempt to synchronise better, there's over 800 tabs in there, I don't see these in Firefox Sync either.

Can Firefox Sync be archived/exported? I might not be able to replace the phone before my sync data disappears!

Please help me get to my data !

Since the last update the Android status bar (top bar with the notifications, time, WiFi, battery info, etc) disappears when start browsing in the light mode. When launching the Firefox app everything is OK but as soon I start browsing the icons on the bar just turn white. ( Please see the images below) Before the last update it worked well. Any suggestions to solve this issue?

Nevertheless, Firefox does NOT ask me whether to save the password for a new site login, nor do these passwords appear to be listed in Firefox.

What am I doing wrong? Running Firefox 106.0 under iOS 15.7.1 (from app store) on iPhone 13 Pro. Please help! -- jclarkw
