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.

So does fire fox just not give a shit whether the app is usable? You've completly stripped.any ability to customize and disable useless "features" that maybe 5% of user want. Are you just trying to go out business? How about returning control to the user. How about reading the app feedback and actually responding to users instead of ignoring us.

Please, please, please... bring back the pre v. 100 ability to not remember History, and to completely Close Apps when closing Firefox!!! (& to really not remember history, or tabs)

High data use and freezing makes that I have to go into Settings/Apps/Firefox/Storage/cache and delete all, because Firefox froze at each use, as it was suddenly remembering every site opened, despite my checking the boxes not to remember upon closing. Many sites are opened accidentally, as Firefox is the default browser. Not really closing any site, so I run out of data room? (Deleting app data fixes the unresponsive app.)

I really miss the pre 100 versions, when Firefox was dependable, fast, and lean in data use. And tried all the other new versions, but they all have the same site cookies hoarding problem. That is a very data heavy way to be fast, that leads to a lot of crashes where internet infrastructure is minimal.

Thank you for reading. CB

Microphone for Android mobile Firefox doesn't work: have checked and under "Settings, then "search

This is for my Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G: today is Monday, 2022.07. 25.1401.CDT I cannot get the microphone on android mobile Firefox[Version is labelled "Direfox Daylight, version 102.2.1 (Build # 2015891003]. The fix of turning "Show Voice Search" on under 'Search', under "Settings" has no impact: in fact I found "Show Voice Search" was already checked, and the microphone DOES NOT WORK?

I have Grammarly kb set, and wondered if other kb options as alternates but not active, like Gboard, the Samsung, Google or speech to text options, or known add-ons, etc. can be blocking my microphone? With this android mobile Firefox there is no option of entering "about..... Microphone" or other command line options do not work entered on this version of Firefox, what to do? I want the microphone "on" by default if possible as I was just dxed with Adult-onset or Type II diabetes, doing 5 finger sticks each day for my blood glucose: both fingers n thumbs every 2 days: my fingertips are so sort, even using a stylus, my kb entries have errors 50% of my attempts.

What is "Firefox Daylight"? A version for Android?

Are there other modifyiers for Firefox, like addons, or other Firefox modifying supplements like "site to ask permission for microphone" that are known to interfere or block microphone activity?

I have installed and utilize two different browsers for Android phones: Firefox and Opera. When reading an article I was sent part of in my email, I opened the entire article so I could read the article in it's entirety. You choose to open the article in my Opera browser when you could have detected that I had Firefox, a browser you support, and opened it in the Firefox browser. Then we wouldn't have had to stop and go back and copy the article's URL and open my Firefox browser myself. I don't have either of my browsers set as "default" for exactly this reason; so articles can open their publication in the browser of their choice. By the way, the URL that I was opening was: https://member.carepayment.com/Errors/UnsupportedBrowser. This is the first time I have ever been told what browser I could use to view a personal account. Next time, detect that there's a supported browser and open the one you like and support. My Firefox browser could have been opened by you, but not receiving any instructions otherwise, it opened my Opera browser and I couldn't see my personal account of a healthcare payment company.

Can I configure FireFox Nightly or Beta to allow port 10080 on an android phone for router "Guest" access

Forgive me. I may have posted this question already but I can't find my post.

As we know port 10080 has been blocked by many if not all internet browsers and port 10080 is the port that most routers use for their "Guest" SSID access.

I have been told that it may be possible to configure FireFox "Nightly" or "Beta" to allow port 10080 access which is what my router uses for the Guest SSID.

This would be for an Android phone to be able to connect to the Guest SSID on my router using port 10080.

Does Nightly or Beta allow this and if so what are the reconfiguration instructions so I can allow port 10080 access on the Android phone?

Thank you for your help.

Mozila VPN on Android sometimes appear to automatically turn itself off.

The explanation could be in your settings on Android: Go to settings, - select Apps, - - choose Mozilla VPN in the list, - - - go to Battery and select background Use,

go back to Mozilla VPN in the list, - - - go to Mobile Data, - - - - turn On "Allow Background Data Usage" - - - - turn On "Allow App while Data saver is On"

now your VPN shouldn't turn off any longer.

When restarting your phone the explanation why the Mozilla VPN is OFF is that to keep your security, the app requires re-authenticating with their servers (new encryption key).

duplicate of /questions/1421748 thread

I was told to ask for support here rather than bugzilla bugzilla

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android 10; Mobile; rv:109.0) Gecko/116.0 Firefox/116.0

Steps to reproduce: 1. Install Fennec from F-droid 2. Open browser 3. Observe splash screen 4. The original logo is back

Actual results: 116.2.0 changed the startup splash screen back to the regular logo. I actually rather liked the minimalist splash screen logo we had for a few weeks prior.

Expected results: Is there a flag in the config that I can change to get back the minimalist logo
