Hi there So the issue that I have (on Samsung S21 Ultra Android Firefox with integrated DuckDuckGo as search engine) is that I repeatedly press the back button after I finished with the website and Firefox would not go beyond (exit the browser) the homepage/homescreen. I love Firefox and added security, privacy and integration between devices but this homescreen thing is causing me enough irritation to make me move to another browser. So my question is are the a way for me to not have a homescreen? I have tried your help section and went through the options but no luck I also have turn everything off in homepage subsection but still no luck. I would like Firefox to work (in this instance) like other browsers which is if you continuously press the back button you will eventually exit the program/application (Chrome and Samsung Internet works like that)

Sincerely Jan

Hi,

I saved a new login on Firefox Android, but this did not sync to the desktop version. I tried syncing manually on both devices (which kind of defeats the point) and still no avail. The option to sync logins is activated on both devices, so I don't know what the problem is. I have tested this twice (two passwords saved on Android) and on both occasions they didn't sync to the desktop.

I also tested the process the other way around by saving a new login on the desktop and that synced to Android just fine!

Please help.

Hello Everyone,


I have Firefox installed on my desktop and laptop but cannot download it onto my Galaxy A12 mobile.

When trying through Play Store it constantly informs me “Something went wrong, try again.”

When trying to download it from the internet, the Installation circle keeps revolving and nothing happens.


Do you have any advice please?

Thank you

Colin

I am using Firefox browser on my Samsung Android phone. I set it up to use Firefox password autofill as the default. When entering an ID and password , I am offered a list of IDs and starred passwords, and I cant tell which is the right one, as most IDs are my email. It does not suggest one or two passwords for that particular web address, as does my PC laptop.

When I try to sign into my account on mobile (the app itself, not the site since clearly on the website I'm signed in) I get to a white screen that shows a bunch of details of my account status. I am not allowed to progress past this screen. Any way I leave that screen, closing the app, using back, praying the 'x' in they lower left corner, reverts my login. So sync is not allowed on FF mobile anymore? I wish they wouldn't still list it as an option in the app if it's depreciated and no longer supported. If this is a bug, well you got me since FF also doesn't allow bug reporting.

I would like to change the default Firefox "Android" search engine to a custom URL settings for DuckDuckGo.

I have dark mode set for my phone(S21) Firefox won't let me block websites access to this user string. I believe this is a huge privacy concern and would like an option to spoof this, as to not break websites. Currently that is not an option, and without access to about:config I can't make a work around.

So this gets me back to DuckDuckGo, and because I clear my cookies often, and the Android version does not have Compartments, I need a work around. Like a lot of websites DuckDuckGo reads my theme and changes it to Dark mode. There is a custom setting, and I have a custom URL but Firefox won't let me change it to this custom URL

https://start.duckduckgo.com/?kae=-1&kak=-1&kal=-1&kao=-1&kaq=-1

Please help, as I love Firefox, but God dam does it make me angry with all the bugs, and Mozilla's current philosophy of streamlining the Android version.

P.s. Google (I assume) has once again changed the user agent for Firefox Android, and I have had enough, and wanted to change back to Duck, but Dark Mode really irritates me on most websites. I really don't get why everything has to be so frigging hard, if you don't accept the status quo.

Hi!

Version: FF Android 101.2.0 (plus other version stuff I can provide if needed), Android 12

Just thought I'd report this because it appears to be a consistent, reasonably long-standing issue (months) on a popular news site. Or is it "just me"?

Website: https://www.theguardian.com/uk (several million uniques visitors per month)

Expected behaviour: I am able to open various links on this website as backround tabs and continue browsing.

Actual behaviour: 1. After a couple are opened, Firefox for Android hangs for very close to 40 seconds then does a deep redraw/repaint of all tabs and continues to function until I next try to open another background tab from that website. 2. During the hang tab interface continues to redraw, but the pages are not repainted and no taps events work. 3. At the end of this hang time, the pages appear to redraw from scratch and the context pop-up for the third long-press appears on top of whichever tab I was looking at.

It is 100% repro for me -- long-press fails when attempting to open the 3rd background tab, but repaint failure occurs earlier. There is something toxic happening.

Curiously, when I next view my Android Home screen, there is some sort deep refresh/repaint, as if it has been swapped-out or GC'd etc.

e.g. Is there some massive memory blow-out happening?

Context/workarounds: 1. I have tried clearing all browsing data and using a guess account on the phone. 2. I have no addins installed. 3. Neither Chrome nor FF Desktop exhibit this behaviour. This ia FF Android specific

Thanks!
