I am running Firefox 127.0.2 on Android 12. I have disabled the "Offer to translate when possible" setting and I still get the pop-up to translate pages in languages other than English; please see attached images.

I want this to stop. I AM NOT AT ALL INTERESTED IN TRANSLATING!!! Is this possible?

Thanks!

Using the latest version (127.0.2; installed from Play store today, on a fresh Android install), any non-English site I visit I get the nagging popup asking me if I want to translate.

'Never translate this site' works, and 'Never translate Dutch' (and presumably other languages as well) too (so at least I can workaround it, but 'Always offer to translate' off will still nag about translating sites, so is bugged.

And I still have the translate button taking up space in the URL bar. How do I remove it?

I have a Samsung A14.....using an Android 14 operating system. I have Dark mode on at all times on my phone, however when I go online to any sites, it defaults to white screen. I have tried the settings on the phone and in the Firefox settings but it still shows up in white screen. On my old phone, I can get all websites in dark mode so I know it is possible, can anyone help me?? Thanks

How to customize the collections?

I can't figure out how to customize the collections. I want to be able to organize my collections alphabetically, make sub-collections under a parent collection (like one can do in Gmail, for example), it would also be helpful have the option to choose the color of the main/parent collections, and to be able to search within the collections using a keyword in a search box.

With all of these customizable options, I could create a better, more efficient organizational system that would REALLY help to keep & identify collections quicker & easier.

I have had to make dozens & dozens of collections due to the inability to file sub-collections under main/parent collections.

As a result, a frustratingly unnecessary amount of time & effort is spent trying to remember when & where (throughout my ENTIRE history of having Firefox/using collections) a particular collection is located.

I then ALSO have to spend an unnecessary & frustrating amount of time searching within the collection just to locate a particular link as there is no search bar within the individual collection (or from all of the collections, umm... collectively) to facilitate a search.

    • I wanted to make sure it is known that I DO like this feature, regardless if it was intentional by design or not

Once I eventually find the 1. Collection I'm looking for, and then eventually find the 2. Link I'm looking for.. I can click on the link, and I'm directed to the page I saved, but here's the bonus:

When I hit the back button, I'm taken to the page I was on, previous to the page I saved. This is SUPER helpful when I come back to something I've been researching as it helps me to reconnect to the line of thinking I had during the time of research. This helps to eliminate the need to keep such a detailed journal of the thought processes behind each area of research to expand upon or revisit.

So thank you for that!! Also, please don't mess with it? I'm only needing help with the items mentioned at the beginning of this message.

Thank you for your attention, time & help with figuring out how to locate & utilize the customizable, collections organization options.

With appreciation to those who work behind the scenes, doing what they can to foster potential, growth, efficiency & ease,

I woke up and my Firefox address bar are in the bottom of my screen. I don't like it :( I'm on mobile, and especially with mobile sites there's so many features near the bottom, or something like the feature where you swipe down (from the top. because that is where the address bar is supposed to be) to refresh

I really like FireFox mobile, but the amount of misspelled words is starting to become an actual problem for me.

I use a Samsung S8 with Android 9 and whatever predictive text functions it has are turned off because I find them beyond grating and it's just not how I check for spelling errors.

The reasoning to this function being ommitted was (last time someone asked the question) due to space.

Why can't this be an official plugin that people can add?

I'm supporting FireFox entirely for ethical reasons (the only non-chromium browser that still cares about privacy) but I just can't type like this anymore.

Will something be done about this function missing?

Some addons can't be installed on Firefox Nightly for Android (redux)

This is a follow-on to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1401783, I have the same problem - I've followed https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/extended-add-support (which is for some bizarre reason marked "no longer maintained"), to create the custom collection https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/17515772/raxod502/ so that I can override the arbitrary blocking of third-party extensions that Mozilla applies by default.

This allows me to install most extensions but for some reason https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/duochrome/ is not showing up in the interface on Firefox for Android, despite being in the custom collection. No information is given about why it is not showing up. I am not aware of any reason why it would be blocked. Here's the manifest.json: https://github.com/FreshSupaSulley/Duochrome/blob/main/firefox/manifest.json

How can I fix this and use whatever extensions I want to use, or at least get a valid error message about why Mozilla is blocking the extension?

Creating a new thread since the older one just says "Even using that approach, not all add-ons are supported in Firefox for Android at the present time", which doesn't help at all - there is no reason why any addon should be blocked for mobile usage unless it is explicitly configured as such, and even if that were reasonable, it doesn't help explain what specifically is wrong with the extension I'm trying to install.

Hi Firefox Developer Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I wanted to suggest a feature that I believe would enhance user experience: the option to use custom wallpapers or backgrounds in Firefox. Having the ability to personalize the browser with custom images would make it more appealing and engaging for users. Could you consider implementing this feature in a future update?

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to improving Firefox.

1. When we press Home button in the app toolbar, It opens a new tab and sends the active tab in background instead of closing the tab. The correct working of Home button is to show Homepage in current tab. For opening new tab, we can use "New Tab" option. Because of this all tabs keep getting stored in background and it's quote irritating.

2. Same for back swipe gesture, the tab gets stored in background instead of closing. For example, I clicked on an Article in Google Feed, it redirects to Firefox, now after reading the article, I swiped back to go back to Google Feed. Now swiping back gesture doesn't close the active tab, instead it stored the tab in background. Because of this too much tabs gets stored in background and need manual effort to remove the tabs.

So, Fix these two features.
