Hi

I have installed firefox on my Samsung S 6 tablet (bought 2022). I can't get Firefox to show a task bar (or bookmarks menu - but the bookmarks do exist from sync) and I can't add in 1password. I synced with my desktop (where firefox and 1 password work perfectly well) and tried everything I can from online suggestions - but either they haven't worked or some of the settings they refer to don't exist in the Android version of firefox. 1 Password - which is also installed on the device - does not show up in the list of add ons accessed via the Firefox 3-dot menu; and doesn't show up either if 1 password is open or closed . I've wasted hours on this and getting nowhere. Any help would be appreciated

Thankyou RC

I'll understand if this is a longshot. However, I need to ask.

I have tried the new user interface that Mozilla put out about two years ago. I tried it when it first updated and I tried it again last year to be sure. And I'm sorry, but I hate it. I hate it so much. It's unwieldy, I don't like the way the tabs are presented, I don't like how New Tab works and most of all I hate that my bookmarks aren't the first thing I see when I open a new tab. I've been using I think Firefox 69 or 79 ever since.

But using an out of date browser obviously has issues. Pictures aren't loading, some webpages aren't loading, including ones I need for school, and recently my adblock stopped being able to block everything.

Which brings me to my question. Is there some way I can update Firefox to the new browser without using the new UI? An add-on, a setting I can change? If it's complicated, I can do it with a decent step by step. Even if you can help me find the right phrase to google to get a how to would be great.

Thank you in advance, and I hope you have a lovely day

  1. 1. I want to able to change the order of the tabs, for I'm unable to really use the browser this way. Chrome and 1DM both have the ability to change the order of the tabs by holding each one and moving it above or after a specific tab.
  2. 2. Another thing is to remove the full-screen notification in the bottom, or add a setting that makes it go away faster when someone toggles the full screen on a video player.

I miss two features from using Chrome on Android. Your help file says "double tap with a single finger to zoom" should work, but double tapping to zoom in or out doesn't work. At least not on my phone. But it does work in Chrome.

The other features is to swipe down at the top of a page to refresh it. I use this feature a lot and feel like it would be pretty easy to implement.

Without the zoom working I will probably switch back to Chrome. Which is unfortunate because I use Firefox on my desktop.

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.

When trying to close Mozilla firefox on Android, it just doesn't happen. I can "swipe" it away in app-selector, but it is still open in the background.

It is also refusing to go away from the notification bar, and I am going out of my mind, having to restart my phone each time I use the browser.

Do anyone here have a suggestion? I already tried re-installing FF and rebooting my phone obviously.

It started happening about 1 month ago.

Firefox 105.1.0 (build #2015904299)

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

Can you please add more padding around the purple 'Add' button (with the star icon) for adding bookmarks on Firefox for Android?

Currently it needs to be pressed very precisely and I'm always opening the existing bookmarks (which I don't want) instead of adding a bookmark (which I do want).

Thank you.
