Sorry if this has already been addressed, the nature of the issue makes it very hard to search.

Firefox web access on my phone has been not working whatsoever for a few days now. The app opens, but no webpages load, including pages that were previously open in other tabs before the issue started. Instead of anything, there is just an empty grey screen with the bar at the top like usual. This also happens if I open any web URL in another app, like Discord or Gmail, and it tries to use my default browser (which is Firefox) to access it. Just straight greyness, no loading bar or anything. The issue isn't present in the default Samsung web browser, but honestly, I can't stand using anything other than Firefox, so even looking up help has had to wait until I could use my computer.

I've tried restarting my phone to no avail. I would like to try uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, but as far as I can tell there is no raw "copy a folder" way to back up my data for whatever reason, and when I tried backing up my data by creating a Firefox account for the first time and using sync... well, to do that, it tries to open a series of webpages. Which it can't do. So that was a dead end. And I would really like to avoid losing my tabs, bookmarks, and history if at all possible.

If I don't get an answer that works for me, I think I am going to enable developer access in my phone files and hook it up to my computer to try and force-backup my data, then uninstall and reinstall the app and see if that helps. Honestly, though, I'm really curious why this has happened and how I can prevent it in the future. Having my web browser suddenly just cease to function has been INCREDIBLY annoying.

Thank you for your time!

When I tapped on the firefox widget on my phone this morning, it showed "google.com" in the address bar but the page was blank. I checked this on my wife's phone and my tablet and the exact same thing happens. I tried turning off my two add blockers to see if that would make a difference but it did not. I then uninstalled and reinstalled firefox on my phone from the Google Store and logged back in and it still acted the same way. For fun, I then turned on "Desktop site" in the menu and then my normal google.com page opened up. When I turned off 'desktop site', it went back to a blank screen with the "home" icon, the address bar, number of tabs open box and the 3 dots menu bar showing on top, but nothing else. I then opened my computer and works fine on my desktop. So, not sure what is happening but definitely some problem with "google.com" address on firefox (unless I toggle on "desktop site".) I also cleared my cache (which of course, was completely empty when I deleted and then added on the firefox app at the google store). Seems like might be a problem on your end? Especially since seems to happen on all four android devices that I have. I've also attached screenshots of the two pages I get, the first regular, the second with 'desktop site' toggled on.

Hi everyone. I hope you're doing well.

So, I've been thinking about downloading the Firefox browser for Android but I am worried.

I saw this among the app permissions on Google Play Store: "download files without notification". And I am worried.

And I need to know:

- What files does Firefox download without notification?

- Why does Firefox download files without notification?

- When does Firefox download files without notification?

- Why and how should I trust an app to the have the ability to download anything it desires at anytime it desires without my knowledge or my choice to accept or decline?

Could you please help me and tell how this app is safe?

Thanks. Have a good day!

Hi. So for quite a few months I've been experiencing two issues relating to the Firefox auto fill for login details.

Issue 1. When you visit a website sign in page the "Suggested logins" box pops up at the bottom (all normal). But then when you login the box won't go away. I can navigate to somewhere new in same tab or switch to another tab already open and the box won't disappear. To get rid of it I need to open a new tab and go to a new webpage, then I can go back to my already open tab.

Issue 2. The "Suggested logins" auto fill for sign in fields on a webpage won't work. This issue started around the same time as the first and is not on every website but a few including Google Account sign in which I use a lot. I will navigate to a sign in page, the Suggested logins box pops up, I select the login I want, but then it won't fill it in.

I've tried reinstalling the Firefox app, but it didn't work. I've kept using the app despite dealing with this everyday. They may be small bugs but they do get tedious after months of it daily. I was hoping an app update would fix the problem but no update has. So I thought I would share, see if its just me.

Recent update causes all pdf links to be opened in Firefox on Android with no option to download, and no setting to choose a default behavior. They're was another person who asked a similar question and was told to use the "Share" option and then "Save as PDF" - this doesn't work. Another advise given was long-pressing on the PDF link and choosing to save target - it won't work when I am pasting the pdf link into the address bar, which is how I do it primarily. I'm stuck using the Open in External App, which opens the pdf in Google drive, then having the option of saving the file. So many unnecessary steps. Please fix.

Hello,

I created an account in Firefox with my old e-mail; nyayesh_abdollahi@fripost.org.

However, I have since deleted that e-mail and also forgotten the login password for that Firefox-account; therefore, I can't login to it albeit it exists.

I'm not sure how this works but I do believe the best way to resolve the matter is through the deletion of the aforementioned account.

Kindly, Nyayesh Abdollahi

Hello. I'm Android Developer at Nord Security @NordPass password manager. I just wanted to ask about credit card autofill on Firefox Android browser. As far as I understand, it's not possible at the moment. Do you have any plans on making it possible? Or maybe there are any settings that need to be set before autofilling? I'm not talking about internal Firefox password manager solution, but about autofilling Credit Cards using another password manager such as 1Password, LastPass, NordPass etc.

I'm having a problem with playing videos on websites. When I click the expand to full screen button about half the time the full screen video comes up for half a second and then the window shrinks down to a small square on the bottom right-hand corner of my screen. Sort of like when the youtube app minimizes a video. This window is unclickable and also everything at or below it in android is unclickable while it's there. If I click the window button on android and swipe the firefox app up to close it and restart it, Firefox doesn't even close and I can still hear sound from the video. I have to select on the Firefox app again which will restore the full window and then click the full screen button one more time and it will work. This issue is happening on every website I play video on on the Firefox app and it is extremely irritating. I'm about ready to switch to another app if this can't be solved, but Firefox is the only browser that allows ublock origin so I don't want to do that. Can anyone help?

HOW DO WE RESTORE JAVASCRIPT. I guess 🤣 need to buy a new phone thanks to FIREFOX. None of the crap in this forum or online works. At first my problem was I can't open links because I need to enable JavaScript. I cannot use the suggested fix i.e. about:config. Doesn't work.

Just a few minutes ago I was able to post a DISAPPEARING query and then somehow I'm not in Firefox and when I try to log in WHICH I DID just minutes before I'm told my password doesn't work or I need to use primary acct which I try and still get told it's WRONG. So now I think I'm here by signing in with Gmail but the problems keep multiplying until I can't remember all the steps I took when something worked and a second later it was bad page or some warning or this that and the other. WHY THE "&?$ isn't there a fix I can complete before I die of old age? HOW DO I ENABLE JAVASCRIPT and why did it quit working?

More a Concern or Desire than a question.

Very common these days (2023) are device types - PCs, Cell Phones, etc. Firefox browser is available to (my main interest) Windows PCs and Android Cell Phone. Then their OS, versions, etc. All have many differences so establishing these differences in the beginning of questios and explainations are critical to the assumptions going forward in support.

The moz://a Support (most support forums) overlook this vital step before delving down into the myriad of complex and different option settings and discussions. I'm no professional but am confident that instruction details are likely very specific to the different device/OS, versions, Platforms, etc. That said I am very frustrated to the lack of a definite starting point for research as most if not all that information is useless to ones specific needs.

Hope you can take this to Hart and consider adjusting the Top Level Titles and/or providing Option Filters to better guide users to their specific needs.

A little different but related, in the old DOS days the c:\\ path format was a very useful practice to provide an orientation of where you are logically. It even accommodates a backward or higher level logic projection up into the internet or devices. I'm only amateur in the full understanding but am fairly certain of its existence. These no nonsense logical establishments go a long way in understanding & conveying complex theory. STANDARDS.

Thank you. Rod
