I am a student using Android I installed Firefox believing in privacy and features. Now I feel like cheated because it doesn't provide the necessary options of print to PDF and option-full share menu.

I wonder why on earth such a famous browser doesn't provide these basic very basic necessary options !

I really don't want to leave Firefox because I love it in a way ! Yet I am being forced to move to another better browser because it's my routine requires it.

I am waiting for the next update without hope.

Bug Report: Home screen wallpaper dialogue forces inverted screen rotation

To whom it may concern, I have a new Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet that I installed Firefox Nightly for Developers on via the Aurora Store as Google Play services are not bundled with this device. I installed my usual add-ons of uBlock Origin, Dark Reader, and Bitwarden from the Add-ons page in the top right menu. Upon returning back to the new-tab page my screen inverted 180 degrees as I received a dialog prompting me to select a background. I was holding the device in what I believe to be upside down portrait mode, with the ports and buttons of the device facing downward and the wallpaper picker forced the screen into default orientation.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report this.

Until a few months ago, when i type something in the address bar, i get a whole page of browser history that i can click on the url to the page i want to go to.

Now i get 2-3 history, sometimes of page that i went to once last year, even though there are more relevant history to display. Why do you prefer showing my white screen?

I have no idea if it's even possible, but on Desktop I can sort my history in the order I've visited them, from the latest being on top to the ones visited a long time ago towards the bottom (and this should really be the default method for sorting history).

How can I achieve this on Firefox Nightly for Android?

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 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.

Since the last update the Android status bar (top bar with the notifications, time, WiFi, battery info, etc) disappears when start browsing in the light mode. When launching the Firefox app everything is OK but as soon I start browsing the icons on the bar just turn white. ( Please see the images below) Before the last update it worked well. Any suggestions to solve this issue?

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.
