I don't want to blow off my bookmarks and other settings, but the system to install firefox app on new samsuung phone is reading "working" when I enter p/w and user, but it ain't allowing it to finish. I went onto the mozilla site and checked my firefox saved bookmarks but the moz. will only show me the dots for my p/w and they are WAY more than what I remember!!!!

  I have icloud so all the macs will show the same p/ws, and there's a big fat Mozilla warning telling me if I want to reset my p/w I will lose bookmarks, settings, etc.
  What is a workaround, so I can actually see my own p/w, or at least change the one Mozilla firefox thinks is the correct one (but isn't!!!)?
   I also have a VPN, which screws up the take a pic of the computer screen to set up computer.  I will go to another computer w.o it and try again, but this is truly overkill (it should have a way to show me my old p/w OR reset w.o killing my bookmarks, settings...)....right?!?!?!!?!

Hi!

Version: FF Android 101.2.0 (plus other version stuff I can provide if needed), Android 12

Just thought I'd report this because it appears to be a consistent, reasonably long-standing issue (months) on a popular news site. Or is it "just me"?

Website: https://www.theguardian.com/uk (several million uniques visitors per month)

Expected behaviour: I am able to open various links on this website as backround tabs and continue browsing.

Actual behaviour: 1. After a couple are opened, Firefox for Android hangs for very close to 40 seconds then does a deep redraw/repaint of all tabs and continues to function until I next try to open another background tab from that website. 2. During the hang tab interface continues to redraw, but the pages are not repainted and no taps events work. 3. At the end of this hang time, the pages appear to redraw from scratch and the context pop-up for the third long-press appears on top of whichever tab I was looking at.

It is 100% repro for me -- long-press fails when attempting to open the 3rd background tab, but repaint failure occurs earlier. There is something toxic happening.

Curiously, when I next view my Android Home screen, there is some sort deep refresh/repaint, as if it has been swapped-out or GC'd etc.

e.g. Is there some massive memory blow-out happening?

Context/workarounds: 1. I have tried clearing all browsing data and using a guess account on the phone. 2. I have no addins installed. 3. Neither Chrome nor FF Desktop exhibit this behaviour. This ia FF Android specific

Thanks!

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?

My desktop Firefox recently decided to permanently change http to https for my lab Web site. My lab server can't handle https so I was unable to view my Web site using Firefox. I was able to correct this problem by going to Hamburger icon > History > Manage history, searching for my Web site, right-clicking on one of the found items, choosing Forget About This Site, and clicking on Forget.

How can I do this on my Android phone? I haven't been able to find the corresponding functions in the user interface.

I'm using Firefox 105.2.0 on my phone.

Thank you. - Robert

I stupidly exported my Google browser bookmarks to Firefox when setting up on a new device and lost all my firefox bookmarks from all my other devices as a result. I am utterly horrified and freaking out - it's years of bookmarked articles that I'd even organised into folders! Is there any way to get them back?
