In Firefox settings, I DO have "Open links in apps" enabled, because I do want most sites to do this. However, there are some specific sites that I DON'T want to open in app. For most of these (e.g. Aurora Store), it is sufficient to open the App Info (in Android system Settings) and disable "Open supported links" (and also tap the "clear default preferences" button, if it's there). For those apps where I've disabled supported links, webpages will load normally in the browser, and there won't even be an "Open in app" option from the 3-dot dropdown menu for the website.

The problem is, some apps that have supported links disabled will still be opened when a link to their website is tapped in browser. One example of this is Tumblr. Tapping a link to any tumblr.com site will launch the Tumblr app instead (which is a particular problem because the Tumblr app currently has a bug where it cannot open links to specific pages, so it navigates to the homepage instead, which is useless. For this reason, it's imperative that Tumblr links open only in browser, at least until Tumblr fixes their bugs.)

Is there anything that I'm missing that will definitely prevent FF from launching an app, when that app is set to NOT open supported links? Is this a FF mobile bug that I should file on Bugzilla? Are there any workarounds (perhaps like a 3rd-party app that intercepts the intent to open Tumblr and redirects it back to the browser)?

Weird white stripes on Firefox Android

Hey. I hope no one asked this question before because I could not find it. I am trying to build a website, that contains a header, a main-part, and a footer. All of them together should make up 100% of the screen size. The height of the header and footer are fixed to 100px each, so the main part must be adjustable. On desktop this is easy accomplishable in CSS trough: height: calc(100vh – 200px). On mobile however, 100vh does not include the URL bar. Therefore, I used JavaScript. Basically, I am checking if the device used is a mobile one. If so, I use window.innerheight and subtract 200px from it. That fixes the issue, at least on some mobile browsers. And here is where the fun begins:

On Brave-Android it works as expected. On Firefox-Android however, it does not work at all. There are two white stripes on the site. One under the iframe that holds the header and the other at the very bottom of the site.

I have added two screenshots to this question. One screenshot shows how it is supposed to look, the other one shows the problem I am facing.

If you want to check out the code, I did upload everything to GitHub. The site itself is in German, but all the variable are in English.

I'd love to have a feature where I can choose to open all my synced tabs on a new device at once instead of having it as a list under synced, as it would look on the original device I have them opened on. Maybe have that option to open all tabs under synced.

Thanks, Judy

Hi,

There is a few bugs:

1. Every time I tap the back button, the page disappears but stays in open tabs.

2. There is no option to move pinned sites and create folders there.

3. Recently opened pages appear next to the pinned pages, even though it is turned off in the settings.

I wanted to urge you to make a Mozilla email system that does not track us, that is secure, and does not sell our info. I am tired of Google and have been hearing of many unethical things they are doing. It would be nice to have a Mozilla email with the Relay built in. I would even pay for it too. Something like $3-4 per month.

Thanks

The option to "sync and save your data" no longer appears in the main menu, nor under settings. Oddly, I can still send tabs from my laptop to my phone, just not the other way around. The option to "connect another device" in the share menu uselessly tells me "to send a tab, sign in to Firefox on at least one other device," when I've already done so.

In short, this doesn't appear to work anymore: [to set up Firefox Sync in Firefox for Android]
