As mentioned in [1], Firefox "Fennec" has reached "end of support" (Version 68.11.0 is the latest you can get). Its successor is Firefox Daylight (codename "Fenix"). But I can't find a place at Mozillas webservices, where I can download an APK to install Firefox Fenix on my Android mobile device.

Using Google Play is no option to me, since I want to run a privacy friendly mobile device without any Google services. Privacy is my main reason, why I would like to use Firefox on my mobile device.

@Mozilla: Please provide such an APK download location for Firefox Daylight (Fenix), as you did with Firefox Fennec!

There is already a discussion about this topic in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293461, but this topic is about "Fennec APK download" and is marked as "solved", since a "Fennec APK downloads" had been provided. And there is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293483, talking about "Fennec nightly APKs".

Using https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/releases to download APKs seems to be a bit unreliable, since not every build has attached APKs.

So I start this new question, in order to find a solution for Firefox Daylight (Fenix) APK downloads.

Thanks you!

So I just downloaded the Firefox mobile app for Android and I am lost. I am trying to find what I would consider a homepage like on chrome or edge and I'm not finding anything. Where do I find it or how do I begin using Firefox mobile app? Where do I go to like set up.my homepage the way I want it? And how do I view it what's the URL? Like I said I'm totally lost this looks like a different universe to me. I did just to find a support site that I'm hoping we'll answer some of my newbie questions. The link is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/mobile. Attached are the only two screenshots that I have because I just can't seem to navigate Firefox app.

I have set my passwords rule to "Ask for saving passwords" but only passwords on web pages are saved and used. Passwords for .htaccess are not saved and not used. Even the existing old ones are ignored. Is this a bug or a new "feature"? Or am I doing something wrong?

After the updating to the last version of Firefox in Android, the browser started to save the downloaded gifs and videos to some different location, so they are not displayed in the phone gallery. With previous versions this was not happening. Due to this issue, it is being harder to share these contents as you have to locate them by manually searching through the file explorer, while before you could just get them easily through the messaging apps. I couldn't find any setting to fix it.

RE Firefox for Android 81.1.1

1. PLEASE MAKE FIREFOX for Android MOVEABLE TO EXTERNAL SD STORAGE. MANY users can't install or keep Firefox because of low internal storage. Make it moveable, PLEASE. I have 16GB internal storage and can't keep applications installed. Then I have 128GB external storage I can't use. My other cell phones w 8GB, couldn't even consider installing Firefox for Android.

2. Manual update of Firefox for Android is hidden, convoluted, & difficult. Also entirely different from easy update checkup for Android for Windows. I'm not sure if Firefox for Android even auto-updates because my version was way out-of-date when I manually updated it.

Thanks. Scott J. Loyal multi-platform Firefox user.

Hi,

Now when i click the address bar at the top I'm met with a Blank Screen whereas before the update I had my Top Sites "pinned" for quick & easy access. I now have to faff around going into the bookmarks which is pointless when this feature was working perfectly well, why remove it?

Also when i start Firefox fresh i see small icons for the top sites but they're so small the URL/Name doesn't show up so i have no idea which icons lead to which sites. These need to be bigger like post update and put back line they were before.

If it ain't broke don't fix it. This update is a massive fail, please revert ASAP.

There have been so many complaints and one star reviews about version 79, would it really be so hard to reintroduce version 68 back onto the play store under a new name like "Firefox legacy" or "Firefox classic", so we could run that side by side with 79 until the dismal failure that is version 79 has at least been fixed to the extent that people can decide it's worth changing over, i.e., when the things that are most important to them have been fixed? For me that is a customisable home page because I've set up my own site to be my home page on all browsers on all platforms because (so I thought) nobody would be stupid enough to release a browser that doesn't allow that to be customised, and more access to important addons like adblock plus and the home page button, and, of course, a back button.

You could add a big disclaimer that there would be no security or other updates in the description.
