How force HTTP-mode for specific websites?

How can I override the default to connect to a website in HTTPS-mode and enforce a HTTP connection for specific websites, like the configuration server on modems/routers?

Where is the Firefox-for-Desktop option in the padlock menu for the Android version, when it says "Connection is not secure", to turn off "HTTPS-Only Mode" temporarily or permanently for that site?

All I have available, is the in this case pointless "Retry" button and the useless info "This connection has timed out". But nothing at all to force a HTTP-Only connection.

The solution can't be, that every time I need to connect to a website that does not support transport encryption, to have to dive deep into FF's settings and globally disable "HTTPS-Only Mode", and once I am done, go back and enable it again.

So, what is the pragmatic solution on mobile Firefox to add and manage such exceptions?

Dear Firefox Team,

I am writing to express my frustration with the practice of page-force blocking that is implemented by your browser in China. As a user, I have noticed that when a website is blocked by Firefox China, it only serves as an annoyance rather than actually solving the problem.

I have a few questions regarding this practice. Firstly, how does the idea of blocking websites by the browser to prevent users from accessing a website that China government doesn’t like actually work? Users can always switch browsers or use other technology if they want to access a website, so what is the point of implementing such a feature?

Moreover, I fail to understand why Firefox would choose to increase user annoyance by page-force blocking that user can’t turn off instead of solving the problem at hand. It seems that this approach only exacerbates the issue and causes more frustration for users.

In conclusion, I would like to request that the Firefox headquarter team reconsider their current approach towards blocking websites in China. Instead of page-force blocking, perhaps there are alternative solutions that could be explored to better address the issue at hand.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely, HZ

Hello,

This morning, I have accidentally close all my tabs (60+ tabs, which were open for more than 5+ years), while I wanted to reopen a recently closed tab. I suppose that this mistake was due to the sensitivity of the touch screen, since both option are next to each other in the menu.

I see multiple problems here: - There was no dialog asking me if I wanted to close all my tabs. While on Desktop this dialog exists. So for a long time I had no clue what just happened. - As I remember, Firefox did not gave me the opportunity to undo my action.

Now, the question is: How can I reopen all my closed tabs ? The menu "Recently closed tabs" have only 10 items, and those do not belong to the 60+ tabs that have been closed.

Is there a way to reopen all the tabs that I accidentally closed (I do not use Firefox Sync) ?

Thanks in advance

Hey there,

As the title suggests, I'm having an issue with the navigation bar. It remains at the bottom of the screen even when I have the least need for it, which makes the content of the screen glitchy. It may not sound like much, but it's very annoying and ruins the whole browsing experience, especially when watching videos. Because of the unwanted navigation bar, even a slight touch on the screen causes the videos or pages, but mostly videos, to move around left and right when in landscape mode. As you can see in one of the screenshots I sent, the video is not even visible, it's just a black screen, which is a different issue that I faced for the first time but I am not sure how often I'll get that in future but it's there.

If anyone can suggest a fix for this issue,(the one with the navigation bar and jumpy video screen) such as a setting that I can turn on or off to get rid of the navigation bar, it would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Is there a way to remove specific websites from history on mobile phone? While searching with catchphrase "x" to remove specific position from history doesn't show up.

Clearing everything isn't helpful while scrolling down to just find some position from x-time ago is too time consuming.

I believe both Chrome and Opera mobile have those options.

Cheers

As the title says, is it possible for reader view to follow the system's light/dark mode?

Currently, I can manually choose white on black, sepia, or black on white. That's great, though I'd prefer if the black/white or white/black would switch according to whether the system is in light or dark mode.

Apart from that, thanks for Firefox, I love it!

I've been reusing android firefox again lately and I noticed I would have a bunch of tabs at a time. Then I realized that it was because whenever I would click a shortcut from the search screen it would open the page in a new tab instead of staying on the current tab. Is there a way to change this?

Hello,

My name is Nyayesh Abdollahi and I have a suggestion for Firefox; I've earlier been unable to access an account I created because the e-mail connected to it had been deleten.

This seems to me a proper weakness in Firefox and perhaps should be ameliorated...?

I just wanted to let you know this because I do think it's the best browser around.

If the problem has already been adressed, my apologies.

Kind regards, Nyayesh Abdollahi

I was wondering if there's any way to mute individual tabs in Firefox for android like you can in desktop versions. I can't seem to find an option for our but maybe I'm missing something.

If that's not possible, are there any plans yet to bring this feature to mobile? It's a useful one and one I wish I had a long time ago.

This started happening recently. Firefox will not delete Yahoo mail message if Yahoo App is installed.

It keeps asking to use the app. Used to be you would click on CANCEL and everything would go through.

As soon as Yahoo App is UNINSTALLED, everything starts working. I tried installing a Yahoo App version from a year ago, and still the problem reappears.

Is there any way to just set things so Firefox NEVER asks to use Yahoo App? I want it to use other apps , just not Yahoo Mail.

please i am Begging you let me put the forward/backward buttons on the search bar why do i have to open a separate menu to do this

ability to Choose what gestures do (for example, swiping on the search bar in either direction to navigate history rather than tabs) would also be acceptable, if slightly less convenient (as i suspect something like that would only allow moving forward/back one page at a time, as opposed to simply press-and-holding to pull up all your options to jump to)

i am losing my mind a little bit here i don't understand why it has to be so roundabout

I read the strings of comments regarding about:config not working and presenting a blank page. I have the same issue.

I have been a Firefox user for decades, preferring Firefox over all other browsers. However, without the ability to customize Firefox we, the loyal, may be forced to use another browser. Also, no customization is only contribution to other browser's owners/developers efforts to eliminate Firefox.

Is there a solution to fixing current version or Firefox, about:config in development or already available?

Thank you.
