Samsung Internet hijacks default browser

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra running latest Android update and latest Firefox update. I set Firefox as my default browser. I have un-installed all updates for Samsung Internet and removed all permissions for it. Disabling it is greyed out. Some apps that I use have links to websites. Too frequently, when I go to one of those links, the intro screen for Samsung Internet opens. Then, when I look at the settings in Firefox it is no longer set as the default. Then I set Firefox to default and go to my phone settings to see that Firefox is selected as the default. If I open the previously mentioned app and choose the web link, Firefox will open. But somewhere along the way, the default changes back to Samsung Internet and it's a vicious circle. I have posted in a Samsung forum but haven't gotten a reply that solved the problem. Please help. Thanks Mike

I've been using Firefox on my Android device, and I recently started using a VPN to enhance my online privacy. However, I've noticed that since I started using the VPN, the performance of Firefox has declined significantly. Pages take longer to load, and sometimes I experience connection issues.

Is there a way to optimize Firefox performance when using a VPN on Android? Are there specific settings or configurations within Firefox or the VPN app that I should be aware of to improve browsing speed and stability?

Any advice or tips from those who have faced similar issues would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance for your help!

About:config is not available and my phone on vpn at ipleak.net says webrtc detection shows 10.41.0.162 IANA private or special address and 2001:db8:123:10a0 IANA private or special address.

Aren't they internal LAN ip's? How can they be seen even without a VPN when I have NAT.

I have installed Firefox on both my tablet and Phone (Android 13 and 14). I cannot get a QR code on my desktop when I follow the link but I did get a QR code from another source but I was required to give a code on my Microsoft Authenticator but none appeared. I have set up two-stage authentication but am not receiving the required codes. Can you help ?

Thank you

Sync to Android phone broken

I've had no issues with Firefox Sync on desktop but frequent issues on Android.

I've reported issues previously here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1879003

Yesterday, it failed in a different way, announcing that I needed to sign into Sync. I've tried a dozen times yesterday and today using both QR scan and email confirmation. All fail in various ways. For example:

  • After scanning QR code: "500 Error Oh dear, something went wrong there"
  • After scanning QR code: "Pairing not successful. Error while creating the pairing channel"
  • After scanning QR code and approving on mobile device and desktop, desktop says success, but phone stays on "Approval now required from your other device" Interestingly this page isn't open in the normal browser. If I click the three dot menu, it says "POWERED BY FIREFOX, Open in Firefox"
  • After going through all the steps and it saying "You're signed into Firefox," yet when I go to share a tab, it asked me to sign in.

Any tips on getting Firefox Sync to work? I don't see any troubleshooting sections in the online help articles.

Hello...my question is if I should go ahead and cancel my account? Ive been hacked and they are even changing my settings - as well as in my add ons. They've even added some that I did not choose. They are adding many site addresses and marking them as trusted when they shouldn't be. I even am not able/allowed to clickk on certain boxes...likke when I try to add a proxy. I think they operate in real time. I just think it mighht be best to cancel for my own security. I don't know what they are capable of doing.

I didn't even create my account. But it had my email addresses. So I changed the password immediately. I know it is some sort of organization because I always receive error messages saying "Access Denied", "Contact your Administrator" or "Contact your IT Department."

Are you at all able to possibly help me? I do plan to file a police report, but it would be very advantageous to me if I could offer them more information and hopefully press charges because this has been going on since I moved to the Netherlands 7 years ago. And no antivirus/antimalware works. Even repairs, factory resets and buying new phones haven't helped me either. As you know, there are very strict privacy laws here.

Ok, thank you very much for your time and any assistance or advice.

I am trying to add some screenshots (where it says to add images) and it won't even allow me to do that.
