Hi everyone,

I set up my Firefox for Android to delete cookies and cache when I click on "Close".

I was happy with it but I realized several months ago than websites as leboncoin.fr, amazon.fr, decathlon.fr (yes i'm french), didn't keep me loged in but remember what I had looked for and where I was. This problem is permanent.

I don't have this problem with Firefox for Windows.

So it seems something is nor cleared from the app when I close it.

Thank you very much for your help !

I have the "Autofill in other apps" service set to Firefox but when I attempt to enter a password in any app, I get a message taht says "Unlock Firefox." Tapping on this message does nothing; the message just keeps popping up. No password options appear. If I manually start typing the password, the message goes away, but I am not able to autofill passwords in apps.

If I turn the Autofill in other apps service off, at least I don't get the annoying message, but I'd really like to be able to autofill the passwords. Any suggestions?

Firefox version 95.2.0 (Build #: 2015851755) Android version: 10 Phone: Moto Z4

Thanks!

I changed some settings in Firefox, or maybe Google. To filter stuff that I consider spam. I was apparently overzealous. I cannot view ANY ads from Googleads or DoubleClick. I also cannot view any ads that are labeled as "sponsored" when I do Google searchs.

Lastly I cannot even view links from my newsletters. When I get my weekly newsletter from Bloody disgusting.com and I click on the links for different horror movie reviews, it won't let me go to the story. It says address not found and the website at the top is awstrack.me

I have tried using a different browser (Chrome) and a different search engine (Duckduckgo). Nothing has worked.

Can anyone help please?

I use Firefox to save and autofill passwords, which has worked perfect for years. It still works correctly on a Windows PC, but the problem is on my Huawei P30 pro phone. It used to work correctly but I tried using the phones password manager for both websites and Apps, as a safety back up. I got confused because I was getting 2 lots of suggested log ons. Therefore I switched off everything apart from Firefox. Save passwords and autofill are enabled and some websites load correctly. However some websites where the family have a variety of logons I get all the suggested logons. The list of all usernames and passwords appear but when I touch them they don't automatically fill in. If I go into the password manager on Firefox on my phone all the correct details are saved but they just don't transfer to the website. It is strange because some sites do take the password - I'm not sure but I think it's when there are a variety of possible Loggins. I tried clearing all cookies, and logged out of Firefox and back in but still have the issue. Firefox sync is still working OK.

When I try to access a site, Firefox prompts me with a rogue site problem and forces me to return. Haven't developers thought about false positives? If I'm using Chrome, I don't have a problem blocking user access. I strongly recommend that Firefox respect users' choices and give them access to those sites.

Over the last 3 days, I've been unable to turn off the safe search option using Google as the search engine.

I get a message saying Safe search is locked.

This applies whether I'm signed in to Google or not, but doesn't occur in the chrome app for android.

I tried clearing cache, cookies & data etc to no avail.

So I completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox yesterday which worked fine, however I've noticed the locked safe search filter is back on today.

Any thoughts?

Before a recent update, I had my xnew tab page" set up the way I wanted it, so it only showed a few pinned bookmarks and nothing else. After the update, my new tab page is now showing items from my history after my pinned bookmarks.

I have the "recently visited" toggle turned off in "customize homepage", but they're still there.

So, how do I get rid of this clutter?

The lack of a JavaScript switch in Firefox (Android) - why?

I have noted from a web search that the subject of Javascript in Firefox (Android) has caused issues for some users of this browser.

I understand that JavaScript is now enabled by default in the standard version of Firefox (Android). It appears that once upon a time there was a config setting that could be tweaked to switch JavaScript on or off, but that setting may no longer work. Additionally, I also understand there are add-ons for the Android version of Firefox that can, amongst other things, apparently switch JavaScript on or off.

People here might be surprised to learn that the minimalist Firefox Focus (Android) browser already has a built-in, easily accessible, switch to turn JavaScript on or off:

Settings > Privacy & Security > Web Content > Block JavaScript

So, the point I would like to raise with Mozilla (but it seems to be impossible to contact them directly) is, if it is available in Firefox Focus (Android), why the heck is this switch not available in the mainstream, standard version of Firefox (Android)? It makes absolutely no sense not to have it, surely?

I would suggest that a good place to include a JavaScript switch would be in the 'Site permissions' section of Firefox (Android) settings. It is merely a suggestion as, for example, within the rather useful competitor Vivaldi (Android) browser there is such a switch located here:

Settings > WEB PAGES > Site settings > JavaScript

As for why there should be a JavaScript switch within Firefox (Android), that question is largely irrelevant. Mozilla have already seen a need to include it in Firefox Focus (Android), so what possible good reason could there be for not including it in Firefox (Android)? It mystifies me, and it's omission is an inconvenience too.

Does anyone here have a sensible answer to this question?

I frequently work with SSL certificates, so I need to be able to see what specific error prevents a secure connection. The desktop error page shown an error code like SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE either on the direct page, or in the advanced section. There is no such information on firefox android. Not only does it prevent me from working with firefox on my phone, I think it is a security issue to allow bypassing ssl errors without showning the reason they occured. There is a big difference between an expired certificate, a revoced certificate and a self signed certificate.

Is there a way to enable this information in about:config?

My desktop Firefox recently decided to permanently change http to https for my lab Web site. My lab server can't handle https so I was unable to view my Web site using Firefox. I was able to correct this problem by going to Hamburger icon > History > Manage history, searching for my Web site, right-clicking on one of the found items, choosing Forget About This Site, and clicking on Forget.

How can I do this on my Android phone? I haven't been able to find the corresponding functions in the user interface.

I'm using Firefox 105.2.0 on my phone.

Thank you. - Robert
