When are we getting the bookmarks bar? Users have been asking for this feature for YEARS, and yet you keep ignoring us, why? Why is it so hard to make?

You don't want to give us the bookmarks bar? Fine, how about fixing the home screen? Only 2 rows and 2 pages of bookmarks? Are you guys joking? How about, I don't know, 10 rows and five columns, and 10 pages? You don't have to resize anything, you just have to use the space more wisely.

Also, can you get rid of the top left logo? It's a waste of space, I already know I'm using Firefox, you don't have to remind me every time.

Also #2, move the "private browsing" icon to the 3 dots menu.

Also #3, remove the pin icon from the bookmarks tags.

Also #4, remove the grey border of the favicons, it's more space wasted, you really love wasting space and our time don't you?

Sometimes I feel like you are you do things wrong on purpose, is Google paying you to be this bad? Honestly I can't find another answer, I hope I'm wrong.

Until recently I could store the current page as a shortcut on the Android desktop. There was a 'Page' choice in the top right hand menu. That isn't there anymore. There is a 'Add to shortcuts', but that doesn't place the URL on the Android desktop.

I can't stand this new homescreen that dumps all your history onto it.

Have you ever been on imgur? Literally just scrolling down the page and it's adding lots of random posts to my home screen.

Who wants a feature that floods your homescreen - where you have your specific shortcuts on - with just loads of junk history.

If I clicked on a story on dailymail.co.uk - i don't need that saving to my home screen?

Firefox said this was a new feature. I said it's carp.

How do I roll back to when Firefox worked better?

After installing Firefox for android I noticed that webpages were appearing very washed out, colours faded, blacks rendered as grey etc. It seems similar to this issue https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1329680 Trying the resolution there I noticed that about:config just loads as a blank page.

The issue is dependent on the theme active when tab was created. For example if the browser is in light theme and a tab is created, then you change to dark mode, pages will continue to render vibrant until a new tab is created. Conversely changing to light mode pages will remain faded until a new tab is created.

This behavior is also present if the Theme is set to follow OS if OS dark pages are faded, if OS light pages appear normal.

Hello,

I'm fairly new to using a smart phone; I've had one for a little over a year. Just like on my laptop, I enjoy being able to use Firefox Mobile and appreciate setting up shortcuts to my Android Home Screen. I haven't set one for some time now and am running into problems doing that now. I've discovered that when I now try to set one, it only goes to my Firefox Home Screen, not my Android home screen. What's up with that?

Also, on my Firefox home screen, my Shortcut list not only has my Android Home Screen shortcuts but also many Bookmarks that I don't necessarily want shortcuts to. How do I clean up this list?

While I'm at it, what are Collections?

Thanks, Andre'a

Yes I'm aware there's an option to hide toolbar when scrolling, however on website like Google maps or FlightRadar, firefox doesn't recognize scrolling and toolbar stay visible, which take up a lot of screen real estate when in landscape mode. Please add option to show webpage in full screen or hide toolbar by default.

I saw similar question has been asked but it was a year ago and archived with no answer.

The android version of firefox should follow the "system" for its auto dark mode instead of following the "battery saver". Just like chrome and other chromium browsers do.

The major advantage this gives is that it allows even older android version users to experience auto dark mode, since there are ways for them to initiate system wide dark mode through 3rd party apps (like this one for example: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=systems.maju.darkmode&hl=en&gl=US) But since Firefox follows battery saver, this never works on android version lower than 10.

Therefore, I'd like to request the developers to implement the uato dark mode in firefox android to follow the system instead of the battery saver status.

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
