What does Firefox/Mozilla know about Android 8 that Adobe, Chrome, DuckDuckGo, Google, and Samsung do not?

This is kind of an inverse support question. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablet running Android 8.1, no System software updates in years. All good until this past week. Suddenly most, but not all, of the apps are crashing. The first one I noticed NOT crashing was Firefox. Another is a ViHealth app which just released a major re-write a few weeks ago. Adobe Acrobat, Chrome, DuckDuckGo browser, "Google", Samsung Memo and Galaxy Store, and others all crash immediately upon opening. All but Memo have been updated in December '22 or January '23.

Why DOES Firefox work when these others don't? Do we know of changes to commonly used source-code libraries that are for Android 13, but not compatible with Android 8? Revisions to permission structures? Anything? Beuhler? Thanks! Puzzled in PA

Hello. I'm Android Developer at Nord Security @NordPass password manager. I just wanted to ask about credit card autofill on Firefox Android browser. As far as I understand, it's not possible at the moment. Do you have any plans on making it possible? Or maybe there are any settings that need to be set before autofilling? I'm not talking about internal Firefox password manager solution, but about autofilling Credit Cards using another password manager such as 1Password, LastPass, NordPass etc.

Thanks in advance :) Zilvinas

Whenever I tap a button on any website that is supposed to start uploading process nothing happens. I don't get to see a file browser with which I am supposed to pick a file or anything else, only a slight website UI animation of the button responding to my tap if the website/button has one.

This has been the case from the moment I installed Firefox. It is the same in both regular and private browsing. I have looked at Firefox and Android app permission settings and haven't found anything and allowed everything relevant for Firefox to use (access to files, internet). I have no problem downloading files. I am using MIUI 13 Global.

As of this evening, Firefox for Android no longer opens links from webpages. This was working just fine yesterday, but any attempt to solve the issue has resulted in failure.

  • I can still open links manually by copy-pasting them into a new tab.
  • I have tried disabling all add-ons, to no effect.
  • I discovered this through my regular browsing, but I have also tested a random Google search page, as well as various links in Mozilla Support.
  • Javascript appears to be unaffected.

Current version is Firefox for Android 106.1.0.

I installed firefox nightly on a Fire Tablet. I was under the impression that firefox nightly would auto update even if the google play store doesn't exist on the android device. It has not been auto updating at all. Am I missing something. Do you need to do something in about:config or was my initial impression wrong.

When I select a text from any website there is no option to search privately (unless you're already in private mode). Having Firefox Focus installed makes the option appear but it opens the link there aka in a different app, it would be a lot better if you need have to install another app and yes I know i can just do it manually by copying the text, switch to private mode, pasting and then finally searching. It would save you 3 taps. (The images are with the Firefox Focus app uninstalled, I can provide more with it being installed and how it works.)
