I have seen a few notifications from trading.questrade.com on my Pixel 6a running Android 14 even when I don't have a tab open for the website and I am not logged in. I do have the website in the Settings-> Site permissions -> Exceptions list, but it is very strange that notifications are shown for a website that isn't open in any tab (not in the inactive tabs either). The notification sent does seem to be related to my Questrade accounts. Would anyone have any idea how this could happen. It's a bit concerning.

Firefox details:

127.0.2 (Build #2016028743), hg-c7bfb1e800e2+ GV: 127.0.2-20240624183754 AS: 127.0

It seems like a difficult problem, which no one knows how to solve, not even Firefox (?) The problem has existed for a while and has not been recognized and resolved by Fiorefox. Very simple and straightforward problem: open a web page, give permission for location (this is indeed set in the settings) and the web page can determine the location. After closing the web page and restarting it, the location is blocked again, even though the settings states that Firefox still has access to the location.

Hi everyone. I hope you're doing well.

So, I've been thinking about downloading the Firefox browser for Android but I am worried.

I saw this among the app permissions on Google Play Store: "download files without notification". And I am worried.

And I need to know:

- What files does Firefox download without notification?

- Why does Firefox download files without notification?

- When does Firefox download files without notification?

- Why and how should I trust an app to the have the ability to download anything it desires at anytime it desires without my knowledge or my choice to accept or decline?

Could you please help me and tell how this app is safe?

Thanks. Have a good day!

Hi. After your most recent update to the FireFox app on the playstore, I have noticed that the location setting on my app came enabled. Upon clearing it, it tells me that doing so will decrease the functionality of the app, and when I clear the app data the location permission is re-enabled. Is there anyway I can fix this? This is a big privacy concern for me.

I am constantly getting notifications from Firefox and cannot cancel them. They appear on my login screen and on home screen (see screenshot). Cannot swipe them away and cant find way in FF. Only way to get them to go away is to restart phone.

Usually notification comes from an active web page but now getting them from Firefox itself. Current one just says "About home".

In my phone's notifications, I have one that says "Camera Is On in Firefox". I can't get it to close. I want to revoke permissions/access to my camera and microphone in Firefox's browser. After searching through my settings, and searching online, I have found no answers. I WANT MY CAMERA OFF.

I have an Android, using version 118.2.0.

And it's RIDICULOUS that I have to "create an account" to even ASK a question to SUPPORT! Your "Help" section frankly is useless. No "help" at all.

For some reason, the "Location" site permission will spontaneously change to "Blocked" after some time on the site.

This seemingly only happens when another permission is in use (e.g. Camera).

I am currently trying to customize the Firefox browser for Android and have encountered a hurdle. Specifically, I want to change the 'permissions.default.image' setting according to the host of the website being visited.

I have searched through the source code, but I'm unable to locate where this preference is being modified, which is adding to my difficulties. I'm uncertain about the next steps to take.

Could anyone please guide me on how to implement this functionality, or direct me towards relevant resources or documentation that could help me? Any leads or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Best regards

I've already attempted to implement this in the GeckoEngineSession in the override fun onLoadRequest method, as that's where the host is loaded. Unfortunately, I haven't had any success with this approach.
