When Mozilla released Firefox 79 on Android, the company faced criticism over the lack of several features and limited extensions support. To address user concerns, the company added the back button with Firefox 80, followed by some other features like download manager on Firefox 81. Mozilla has now added support for a handful of extensions in the latest Firefox Nightly for Android.

In the recent Firefox Nightly updates, Mozilla has brought back a total of 10 recommended extensions from legacy Firefox for Android, including 2 extensions (Video Background Play Fix and Google Search Fixer) added earlier this month. Along with the 9 recommended extensions that were shipped in Firefox 79, there are a total of 19 extensions on Firefox Nightly. Take a look at them below:
