The latest updates for Firefox on Android have helpfully deleted my browser theme.

I know themes aren't supported for now, and that would be fine— were it not for the fact that it's also left no trace of which theme I was using, so I can't even install it on Desktop or a future Android version.

This is something that the user explicitly chooses and sets, and which becomes a personalized and extremely visible part of their user experience. Please tell me that there's still an `about:config` flag or back-up configuration file or something which contains an ID or URL for the theme.

On bugzilla.mozilla.org there is a button and form for entering bugs in Firefox Android, but when I press "Submit Bug" it says "Sorry, entering a bug into the product Firefox Android has been disabled." Is this normal behavior? Where else can I report bugs in Firefox Android if not there?

Yesterday I tried downloading a document but it failed to do so. Since then, the 'Download failed' message keeps popping up as a warning in Android. I can't acknowledge it by clicking on the message, but I can swipe it away until it comes back within about 2-30 minutes. The message seems to appear only when Firefox is not running in the foreground. There are no tabs open and this download is not available in the Downloads list. I can't clear the downloads list by the way, which is weird.

I already forced a shutdown of the app and cleared the cache. I haven't tried to clear all data as I don't want to set up the app all over again. I'm sure that works but that's not the solution for this.

On the new Firefox for Android there are a much more limited set of search engines you can use. I am assuming that will get better as there is more development. I used to use Startpage, which I am struggling now to add in as a default, because it is not available as a standard search engine or a add-on.

The main question I have, however, is whether there are any plans to be able to choose what search engine you use each time you enter something in the address bar? One of the best features of the old android app, where I had Startpage as my default search engine, was that I could type something into the address bar and just press enter to use my default search engine or I could choose to revert to Google or Wikipedia straight from the address bar, depending on what search I needed.

System: Windows 10 32-bit laptop

Problem: non-responsive UI on one laptop only. This includes inability to configure local options. nothing works. Menus drop down, but no matter what is selected, the selection does not highlight, menu hides normally but no action is taken by the browser

If I manually type in the url it sits there. no spinning cursor, nothing.

Browser does NOT crash... It simply sits there doing nothing. All other browsers work fine.

What I have done Restart the laptop Double check Firewall permissions Ran a scan before and after installation (0 threats found) Logged in as administrator as well as user account Ran performance monitor nothing alarming noted Uninstall and Reinstall. (Problem still exists)

Downloads Tab or option removed & "Save as PDF" also Removed in the Recent Firefox android Update! Removing Downloads option is not good by any mean, because how am i suppose to resume the paused file or a failed file due to network issue...? second point is about removing the " Save as PDF" Option where i was able to download a webpage as PDF. That was an awesome feature, which is now unavailable.

So, what are you going to do about this..?

Hi, I'd like to use Firefox on my Android tablet in landscape mode. The "tablet mode" should list the open tabs on the top of the screen. This is not showing.

Supposedly setting the screen size (dpi) in Android developer options to a high value should help. I've tried this but it doesn't make a difference. I've tried both Firefox and Firefox Nightly.

Several screenshot are attached. One of them is of Chrome with a row of tabs on the top of the screen.

Hey I think version 69 still had the 'Recently closed tabs' view, but I cant find it on version 81. I already searched this site and also googled it.

I closed a tab accidentaly that i opened some time ago. So searching through my history won't do it since it was an article of a site where i opened and read like 20 articles, I also cant remember the name of it.

I guess it was removed in favour of a more simplistic UI? If so I would really like the devs to consider adding that back in, I know that there is an option for reopening the tab right after closing it, but it is possible to miss it or your device just bugging/slowing down on you when you do this. This happened a few times to me.

Thanks in advance!
