Currently using Firefox Nightly version 111.0a1 for Android now when trying to open a link in another app it always shows a popup to confirm.

This was not present in previous releases and I don't know if there is a way to prevent this popup as it makes it uncomfortable. Is there an option I may be missing to disable this feature? If not, could an option like this be introduced?

Thanks and regards

Hi

I have an issue when I try to set Firefox as my default browser on Huawei P20 lite (EMUI 9.1) device.

When I go to the app Settings--> Set as default browser option, I'm not getting the default apps page (screenshot 3). Instead, a premission settings page (screenshot 1) is popping up, and the button on Settings--> Set as default browser, is still grey (screenshot 2).

Earlier today, I've installed Firefox Focus browser, and when I tried to set it as my default browser, everything worked as it should, and the page of defaults apps opened up (screenshot 3).

I'll be very happy to know if this is a bug related to my device, or it happens with other devices.

Thanks in advance

Hello dear Firefox Focus team,

At the moment I see a bunch of interface languages available for the Firefox Focus application. At the same time the list is far from full in comparison even with Firefox app itself.

Personally I wish Belarusian language to be added to the app so that I would like to clarify the following:

1. Is there any way I could personally help with this and perform a translation from English to Belarusain (I'm a native speaker and a software engineer)? If yep who is the best contact point to kick-off the process? 2. Where can I raise the feature request if external contributions are not available?

Thank you.

Hello,

I am wondering if Firefox will help users auto opt out of cookies. By this I mean will Firefox implement a feature that the user can turn on in the settings that automatically deleted cookies that are not needed even if they select that they want to opt in or check the cookies that they are opting into and accidentally opt into ones they don't need to. I believe this could be achieved with machine learning that looks at the cookies that are required by websites and the cookies that are more than what are required. Is Mozilla thinking about adding this future or will it in the future? I believe it could change the industry.

When I have "Open links in apps" turned on, for some reason all links to xda-developers.com URLs are directed to the Nextcloud app — which obviously doesn't know what to do with them.

I enjoy the "open in app" feature but this is frustrating. I checked in the app information settings that the Nextcloud app doesn't open any URLs by default, and certainly not specific to xda-dev...?

App Switching Always Opens New Tabs | SO Obnoxious

While using Mozilla Firefox browser on my iPad Pro, I often switch back and forth to different apps throughout my workday. The keyboard command shortcut I use is CMD+Tab to switch to different application windows.

The problem that I have is that every time I switch from a different application, BACK to Mozilla Firefox, instead of staying on the website/tab that I was on previously, it opens up a brand new tab. And I have to close the new tab out every single time just to back to the page I wanted to be at before.

In the settings, I can’t for the life of me figure out how to STOP the app from launching a new tab every single time I simply switch back to the application. It’s the most irritating function to have to constantly close out new tab windows.

Hi there

On some sites I use, their aps are next to useless as are their mobile sites. I want to be able to access the REAL websites but when I change the URL (e.g. change m.twitch.tv to just twitch.tv) it simply redirects to the mobile site again. How can I force it to show me the full web page instead please ?

Many thanks

Zoe
