On Firefox for Android Nightly my desktop devices no longer display in the Send to Device list. They used to show a few weeks ago. Now only other Firefox for Android devices show in the list.

On Firefox for Android (not Nightly) and desktop Firefox (for Ubuntu) all my devices appear in the list. When logged into the Firefox account, all devices show as connected. I can send tabs from any other device to Firefox for Android Nightly.

I used to be able to change add-on settings from the hamburger menu. Specifically no-script what scripts could run. Now when I select add-ons from the menu it brings me to a list of installed addons but does not allow any add-on settings to be set. I have not yet found another way and has rendered my mobile Firefox useless. What is the new way to adjust add-on settings?

I recently changed phones. On my old phone I had some sharepoint pages saved on my desktop. I could click on them and be logged in on the page always.

Now the settings must be different on my firefox because everytime they ask me to log in again. This is annoying since I use it regularly and there is always the mandatory two step verification I have to go trough.

Anybody please can tell me which settings I have to change so it stays logged in. That would be great. Thanks.

Sorry if you need more info about my current settings or sth. I have no idea what to look for except for cookies, which I think I enabled for everything...

Hi,

Thanks for your great privacy-focused browser.

Could you add the option to disable built-in root CA? It would be helpful for us to minimize the risk of MitM attack and other security or privacy threats.

Not all CAs are trustworthy. Some are mismanaged like DigiNotar while some others are malicious like StartCom which was used to perform MitM to intercept communications to Google. However, it would be too late when such events are discovered unless we provide a way to prevent it.

As I know, there are still some CAs out there pose potential threats to security. Some even have got EV treatment.

Best Regards, Thomas Lewis

Is there a way to roll back on Android?

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?

In this article, it specifically says "Listen to videos in the background If you minimize Firefox while playing video/audio, it will continue to play in the background, so you can multitask on your phone." I am wondering how to disable this on the newest version of firefox nightly mobile/original firefox mobile.

I want to see all web pages in desktop view, without having to change the setting for each page I go to. This is an option in other popular browsers. Why not this one?

And please don't tell me why mobile view is better or why I don't really need the feature I'm asking for. I know what I want. And I know exactly why I want it. And I know I'm not the only one who wants it. in July 2021 someone asked for the same thing and Paul replied, "This is something that we are currently working on and hope to include in a future update very soon (it is currently in our Nightly version while it is being tested)." A year and a half later, it's still not available, including (as far as I can see) in the Nightly version. Yet in both instances of this feature being requested, the topic is marked "Solved" and archived. I guess the "solution" is to ignore what users want and force us to use the product in the way you think we should. Very Apple/Google of you!

Between this, no ability to export bookmarks from mobile, and very limited extension support, I'm finding myself ready to give a very bad rating in the play store and switch to another browser.

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.

Hi I'm using Firefox Android version 106.1.0 (Build #2015909131), on an Android 12 Lenovo tablet. Every time I search and open a link, a new page opens, not a new tab. I know there is an option for opening links in new tabs in the Windows version, is the same setting available in the Android version. If so, where can I find it, please.
