Why does an Android keyboard need to see your camera and log files – and why does it phone home to China?

Re: Anybody here installed Firefox?

Firefox is a fabulous browser! Once you learn how to add some add-ons to harden it, that makes it a whole lot safer than many others. I use (ublock origin) ad blocker , (Self Destructing Cookies) , (Https everywhere) a (restart button) and from settings, a (Quit button) So much customization can be done with Firefox Android. Take the time to learn how to use it, you won't be sorry. And finally, one of my favorite features, it loads tabs in the background, like when I'm in my gmail app, I click links and they don't open the browser automatically. They are directed to the browser so when I finally open it, they are all there waiting on me. This is enabled in the settings. And it works for any link, clicked in any other apps.
