I can't stand this new homescreen that dumps all your history onto it.

Have you ever been on imgur? Literally just scrolling down the page and it's adding lots of random posts to my home screen.

Who wants a feature that floods your homescreen - where you have your specific shortcuts on - with just loads of junk history.

If I clicked on a story on dailymail.co.uk - i don't need that saving to my home screen?

Firefox said this was a new feature. I said it's carp.

How do I roll back to when Firefox worked better?

To me, browsing the web is equally important on Desktop and on Mobile.

I have a really powerful desktop PC and I use Firefox for Windows with uBlock Origin. The speed difference between a Chromium based browser and Firefox on my desktop is negligible.

On the other hand, using Firefox on Android is atrocious, laggy, sluggish, slow as hell. I used Bromite (the lightest and most privacy focused chromium browser on Android) and I don't wanna go back. Sure, I'll lose the pristine cosmetic filtering and blocking capabilities of uBlock origin but the websites will load twice/thrice as fast and the app feels fast.

Now, if I change browser on mobile I will have to change it on Desktop too, cause of features like Bookmark syncing, sending pages to mobile and viceversa ecc...

I need a solution. I like firefox, what they are doing as a non profit organization, the battle against Chromium, the fact that adblocking works better ecc... but I don't want to compromise on mobile performance.

What should I do? Switch to something like Brave or is there any solution? Thanks.

I would like to view the individual files in my cash to find an image that appeared in my web browser. The site was feeding me the image via JavaScript so I don't actually have a link to go to in order to see it again.

Hey I'm using FF for android (v103) I know I can set FF to open links in external apps or to open links in FF. The problem starts when I want to open some links in FF and some in the external app.

For example: I like the way YouTube is played in FF and want YouTube links to stay in FF, while messanger.com links don't work at all in FF and I want to open them in messanger app.

Can I configure this to happen automatically? Choose which links opened externally and which not?

I found that deleting an entry from a collection is WAY too easy. If you accidentally 'bump' swipe left OR right, or bump the X icon, it is instantly deleted. I don't know how many times I have done that, and often don't even remember what entry I ACCIDENTALLY deleted.

Is there any way to minimize the ways an entry is deleted, or enable some form of delete verification? If not, it needs to be added for a future update.

Add a deep link shortcut to my Android home screen when "Add to home screen" menu item is missing

I want to add a shortcut to my Android home screen which deep links to a page within a site I use. However, the "Add to home screen" menu item I'm accustomed to using for this is missing.

It turns out that if the website in question is configured to be used as a "progressive web app", then "Add to home screen" is replaced by an "Install" menu item. For my situation, this is unhelpful, because the resulting home screen icon only links to the website's home page, not to the carefully selected URL that I want to deep link to.

SOLUTION

This can be worked around by turning on airplane mode first, then visiting the desired URL. The page, obviously, will not be found, but this causes the "Add to home screen" item to be reinstated. Use it, then turn off airplane mode again. Voilà!

I have two lists of recovery keys and I'm wondering if there is a way to test them to see which one is correct.

I have no idea if it makes a difference but to my best knowledge I have a Firefox Original and Firefox Beta account.

It may just be Firefox information in general is all the same.

Either way I wanted to see which list of recovery keys was valid.
