Reviews From google play store

Firefox Works wonderful I can sync it to all my devices from my fire stick to my Xbox to my cell phone to my PC without any problems but I do encounter one problem anytime I download anything and then try to delete the file I have to force close Firefox reopen it and then I'm able to Long click the item and click delete it or delete all.


Very solid browser - reasonably quick with some good options. Needs some important things, IMHO: 1. Proper black/dark mode - like the Firefox Preview, but keep this layout/format (the preview version just doesn't do it for me). 2. Pull-to-refresh (why is this not already there?) 3. When you open bookmarks, you should be where you last were in the bookmarks - not right back at the start each time. 4. When you select "Request desktop site", it should automatically trigger a page refresh - it doesn't seem to do that. Keep up the good work, guys.


Frustrating to say the least. Very buggy. Pages take forever to load. The clear history and cookies on quit does not always work. A lot of the time it just hangs. Ended up going back to chrome as it was becoming tedious. Just try to import bookmarks from chrome and you'll get an idea how difficult it is to do something simple and straightforward.


I have been working with the Firefox for Android beta app for a few weeks now and there is no wow factor that amazed me. I'm still receiving bogus unfiltered emails and there has been a recent lagging of speed even with the use of a turbo VPN. I wouldn't be able to honestly recommend this app for safe or efficient browsing because every website imputed isn't able to be uploaded or in some cases viewed at all. There are no warnings to distinguish, wether or not, a site is spam or important.


You should visit ( BrowserGood. Com ) to download and install the best browser app. Great browser. Still getting used to navigating and using the ui, (long time gc% [beta dev canary user] ). So locating and then undestanding things or answrs to questions etc is a bit of struggle. And i like the clvisible effort put forth in caring about user privacy. The couple of "issues" with this and release versions are similar to a person moving from a pc to a mac and will contact support for them


All the different Firefox versions are the same - which the exception of the 2nd "Nighty" one (there are 2 for some reason with the same name), and the Focus one (which are the same and just plain annoying). So I'm just curious why Firefox is putting out so many duplicate browsers?


I like it, but it's a big hassle editing bookmarks into folders. Please allow the folder hierarchy to be collapsible.


The current version (11/20/2018) is bad. Nothing works. Links, top sites do not work, everything is grayed out in Settings.


Have been using the previous android version of firefox for the past few months, and while I wanted to stick to firefox it was hard thanls to that browser being sub par. Thankfully I can say they've completely fixed that with this version. Browser works flawlessly - better then even chrome - and actually fixes some of the bugs I had with the other app (being unable to copy/paste sometimes) despite just being a beta. Only regret is that I didn't download this one sooner. Excellent app.


I don't understand why my review disappears every once in awhile. But Firefox still has the same problem it's had for over a year. It's a lot slower than Microsoft Edge or dolphin, or Google Chrome. Firefox are you ever going to address your speed issue. I see the little bar across the top and get about three-quarters of the way and just sit there and sit there and sit there on far too many websites. The absolute best browser for Windows can't even get it halfway right for Android...


Take's a stupendous amount of time for it to load the home page. Very annoying. šŸ˜“


Many pages will not load or not allow to log in. A little slow as well.


I was expecting a browser more like the one I use in my computer's. But some investigating and working with it i realise that this is actually really exciting. If you put some effort in it you realise that those is there best browser out there. Finally back to Firefox even on Android. All bookmarks from desktop imported and working, well you gess it, all other browsers uninstalled or disabled. And forget Chrome, has not a chance.

Great improvement with this update,, easier to see & move from tab to tab.


Works just like Firefox on my desktop. Prefer it for my privacy.


Resuming using this browser after it's been minimized for a while, results in the address bar becoming nonresponsive (won't load new pages or perform a Google Search) (Samsung Galaxy A8). Issue also exists in the stable branch.


Cookie control: why can't tracking and 3rd party cookies be both blocked? 118mb


So far firefox gives me what I ask for. It eliminates all or most of the ads that annoy me the most. I recommend it's use above other ad removers I've tried without success.


Jolly Good Show! Hooray for Firefox, Hooray for Mozilla, Hooray for Google! Thanks Devs :)


Please add a dark mode for Firefox so that the menus and toolbars are dark.


To hard to understand. I dont even know if I am totally finished signing up. I ask for help and nothing. I'm slow, true. But I'm not stupid. I use to use fire all the time. Now I remember why I had to stop. Changes made, made it hard for many. All I do is ask for true help.


I loved it because of its extensions.... Ui/ux is awafully bad.. bring some gestures and redesign firefox...we need to see ui improvement ... Otherwise excellent šŸ‘ browser.... Could not replace chrome because of ui/ux


Worked well, some improvement. Found pasting into forum post impossible. Had to return to Opera Touch to post. Strange, but it is a beta.


Great browser, also, I trust Mozilla Firefox Browsers. I've use several versions of them. Much more cyber secure than Internet explorer.


For a Beta this has worked flawlessly. The only browser that protects your privacy.


Works great! Specially after changing about:config to display as a browser all the time...


Crappy ui. Impossible to use one handed with modern phones that have larger screens. Why browser makers spend hundreds of thousands of hours on core functionality but totally skip out on the user experience is beyond me.


Chromefox, avoid! Full of spam, right from the first load. With this level of contempt for the user, I might as well use Chrome! šŸ˜”


Trying to switch to Firefox but frustrated the dark mode isn't very good... the stock Samsung browser can do it but Firefox can't?


Most sites just crash or load terribly slow or not at all. This browser sucks end of story. I'll have to use Chrome from now on.


šŸŒ·ā˜˜as one of my favorite sites to have fun. So please allow me to continue my journey through this game, and let me continue my enjoyment. Thanks, šŸŒ·ā˜˜


It seems the updates are always taking a benefit away from my browser add ons.


Why have a beta version when you don't supply change logs? Also, stop with the telemetry, it's getting ugly...


There's a lot to change UI in every aspect of the browser for Android mobile users


Lately The FF4AndroidBeta...Has Been Load'n Pages Very Slow Or Not @All...I Use Other FF Apps As Back Up(s) But Am Try'n 2 Spt This Effort By Hav'n It Set As The Default Browser.


Missing some features from the desktop version (e.g. bookmark all tabs)


Fast, easy to use, light


Please add Full screen Browsing option.(Like Samsung browser has)


it works good if it doesn't get interfered with by other apps


Excellent Beta. Firefox focus is the best.


Extensions support make it absolutely worthwhile to use it over Chrome


I want to use this browser but please tell about a VPN extension which works in mobile version.


Its a good app no doubt, but UI looks very restrictive and boxy. Here are two suggestions to make it better: 1. Tabs are difficult to close with their tiny x marks. We need a way to swipe those tiny tab boxes to close them. 2. when we touch the URL, the X mark should clear out the URL address. Its currently stopping the page load. 3. Dragging the page down should reload page. Its very clunky to go to menu to reload. Hope to see these features soon. And I have a intel atom processor. Hope my data is helping.


I've always liked & used Firefox but this edition is a bit wonky. If I double tap very quickly, the images & everything on the page enlarge about 30% and I can't scroll or move the page or even get to the back or the other buttons to get off of the page. And sometimes the keys on the keyboard type in the wrong letters, usually a nearby letter or number. This is on an Ellipsis 10 tablet.


Works well mostly and I don't have to use Chrome. Today the USPS reported that my browser did not "play well with other . . ." and that irritated me. But then I noticed a pending update which is installing now. Hopefully that will fix the "play well" issue. I prefer FF with W10 and iMac OS X, so FF for Android makes it a hat trick.


Window print feature not working...


New update is working! Previous was: broken on my 2G RAM phone, old session shows but when I click never loads. Often another tab loads, or starts to load then gets stuck script. Yes I know about wipe all data, which would be fine if you had session export or profile export, but this browser is NOT AS FUNCTIONAL as it was 10 years ago on the desktop! When will you provide an API for addons to do what SHOULD HAVE BEEN BUILT IN from the day ffox first got tabs!!!!????


great mobile browser, second to none


I definitely like it better than any other, but was dismayed when "Pocket" started "recommending" things. I thought this app was supposed to be private, but it seems to me that it's just another site with a tracking device to spy on my activity.


the newer the app the more problems it has with CNN site. older versions were better. still doesn't allow reader view on that site. Keep updating beta while not updating older version of firefox Android. two year old version on tablet stillworks better than newbeta. on my desktops I went back to ver 65.02 .Ver 68 is awful.


Works the fastest but some sites are "redacted" with large black blocks over site contents HOWEVER this acceptable since it's beta. In all very, very good.


I absolutely love Firefox and I can't imagine myself without this app, is truly amazing. The add-ons are extremely helpful to provide me with the best user experience! Thank you very much!


I use it together with DuckDuckGo. I'm loving it, it's very comprehensive and a great web browser with plenty of great add-ons to make you safe. I like it even more than Chrome. Great stuff Mozilla!


keeps closing down ... never used to ..can't solve problem


I've had good luck with Foxfire until this last week it's just keeps making my phone act weird it crashes and the damn thing keeps popping up asking me to report it I report it and it just still keeps popping up so until they get the problem fixed I'm giving you a to not satisfied


I've used Chrome, Opera and a stock browser but Firefox is my favorite for Android. It's fast and very easy to customize and has all the features I need.


Lovely app. Really handled the function for which i downloaded it. it is fast and reliable. i love it. Please admins don't change the quality rather improve on it to be super jet fast and reliable.


This app runs VERY slow on my LG GPadF 8.0. I do like it because IndieGogo will not load in Google Chrome. But it will load, eventualy, in Firefox. Unfotunately it just runs WAY too slow. Had to uninstall.


App works great most of the time.What will the changing of the FF I have accomplish ? If you want me to update give me a reason. How about preventing the last page you browsed from reappearing after using the Quit command......


Awesome. Works like Firefox, but smoother cause its android version. Worth it. Same extensions, no crashing despite being a beta, its amazing.


Idk why it says it might be unstable, this is one of the best browsers out there!! Its alwats fast, runs smoothly, and privacy is on point!!


it works, but that is all and the very difficult to get rid of "pockets" are annoying


Good browser but I just had to stop using this beta version as it was crashing every few minutes.


decent browser with many options and add ons. great customization. the user interface need work. they need a true dark mode and update to gecko view


Difficult usability with tabs, address bar and menu at the top. Was hoping to switch from chrome but too hard to use firefox on a bigger phone.


!!! THE BEST SECURE BROWSER BY FAR !!! Being a Software Engineer over 40 years and an established power-user of all popual Browsers (Chrome, Opera, IE, Edge, etc), Firefox has CONSISTENTLY been dedicated to SECURITY, not PROFIT. Mozilla provides a incredible, "Public Service" to the World, of which I'm so sincerely appreciative. Thank You: Lawrence Norman Shapiro 2020- 06-28


I have been trying to go to firefox but it wont let me into my account I dont know what to do.


crashing regularly for the past week, fine up till now. recent update?


Secure, & problem free browser. Head & shoulders above all others.


Will not allow download and open of pdf files through browser.


Your all about other apps,,, what about the one I have,, and came to look at like when it was downloaded and such? Oh, I can install it.


Great, except that the Twitter PWA is slow and laggy. PWA in Chrome works fine.


I thoroughly prefer Firefox for Android, much better than Google & Chrome. Exceptional app & web browers, highly recommended


Would really like an option to reposition my bookmarks. Also, support for dark mode.


i loved Firefox from day one but theres no kore auto fill!!!


Very good and dependable and secure browser.


I have been looking for just this type of app ! Works as advertised and love the speed too!


The fonts that are used look awful and they completely hinder the UX.


Great browser with add-on support and without Google's privacy issues with chrome


Crash crash and more crashing since the latest update.


SUPER SUPER FAST! Excellent ! Perfect!


Every time I load the app the touch bar buttons flicker from black and white constantly! Android 8.1


too much lag time, too slow and freezes up a lot.


It has helped me recover my Google account so quick, bravo!


i like how fast it is and its overall excperiance is great


I am a fan of Mozilla. But this browser has set a new record for me in stalls per unit tume. Your new motto should be "come stall with us".


Beta is very stable and performance is great.


I love this browser but so many updates yet I see no change in the app.


Fix scrolling. Literally makes the browser unusable.


firefox is simple awesome. rust is cool


Loving this Customer service is great


Always have had the best experience on all my Android Cells!!!


fast but some time back function not working properly


Was pretty fast in loading the ap :-))) delta foxts


it is not on my beta list...why is that??? I keep checking my beta list and it is not there...Why offer this if it is not showing up...


No ads like Chrome. Faster than Opera.


Same at Normal Firefox.. this version it's Cloning.


Some time you have to use it as it's better performing on certain websites


Speedy and reliable
