I'm a regular user of Firefox Focus on Android and enjoy it very much.

I also tend to use swipe-style keyboard input on my phone and that automatically adds a space after each word that has been swiped. If I want to go to "reddit.com/r/dataisbeautiful" then the easiest way for me to type this into the URL bar with swiping results in:

   Reddit. com /r/data is beautiful

Due to the automatic space insertion at various places.

If the browser could see that this string of characters/words without spaces produces a valid URL then it could suggest that as an entry to click on beneath the URL bar.

I think this is small but useful feature. I recognise that there might be complexities that I haven't considered. As it is not specific to Firefox Focus, I'd be happy to see it in Firefox too. I realise also that it is providing special behaviour to cater to people that use swipe input and not everyone uses swipe input but at the same time it doesn't seem crazy to have for people that don't use swipe input but somehow find themselves with an accidental space in there.

Thanks!

Tracker count

My tracker count is stuck at a number since January. Is this number calculated from # of Focus visits to the same sites, or specific/ new site visits to add to the count?… (funda kabanzi)

My tracker count is stuck at a number since January. Is this number calculated from # of Focus visits to the same sites, or specific/ new site visits to add to the count? Should (and how can I) clear this count?

Thanks

There wasn't an option to provide feedback on Firefox Focus for Android, so I have to write here.

I am wondering if changing the position of the toolbar could be made a reality, just like how it was on Firefox for Android Beta.

Hello,

first off - you're doing a wonderful job, keep on it!

Just a few suggestions which would make FF much better browser: 1. Enhance build-in adblocker that will actually work. Opera's adblocker works way better. 2. Enable opt-in function "I don't care about cookies" based on a current Firefox add-on so a user doesnt have to accept cookies all the time (if they dont care about that).

I'd love to use FF but for the reasons mentioned above, it's not really convenient for me RN. No need to reply. Thanks for your work, anyways!

Sincerely, P.

I have made two Complaints to Google!! I explained in Detail that i have Stopped the many Google Play Store Permisions and why? I installed Google Go and gave the App all the Permissions it asks for! I downloaded it from Google Play! Their own site! I was amazed to see a question Do Not Use This For Search? Then i changed search engines as Google were Emailing me Non Stop! So i put focus as my Default Browser and they would not let me Backup my Phone but i have a 2nd email even though my main email for 35yrs is the same? Then if i dont give Permissions to Google Play Wallet wont work and on it goes! Its Blackmail pure and simple i never asked for thd App to begin with? Do i change everything back??

Hello dear Firefox Focus team,

At the moment I see a bunch of interface languages available for the Firefox Focus application. At the same time the list is far from full in comparison even with Firefox app itself.

Personally I wish Belarusian language to be added to the app so that I would like to clarify the following:

1. Is there any way I could personally help with this and perform a translation from English to Belarusain (I'm a native speaker and a software engineer)? If yep who is the best contact point to kick-off the process? 2. Where can I raise the feature request if external contributions are not available?

Thank you.

Is this a known issue?
