Fennec autostart

#1

How do I prevent Fennec from launching itself at boot time? (new “feature” with v65.0 with new icon)

What do you mean by autostart? I don’t think I have such a thing…?

Simply this: Fennec v65 launches itself at boot time, Fennec v64 does not.

Still not sure what you mean by launches at boot-time. You mean you restart your phone, unlock it and fennec is active activity, not your phone launcher? I’ve never seen any app do that for me.

Not seeing this either.

Device? Android version?

This is not a Firefox feature, as <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED" /> is not included in the app manifest

Check your system settings…

Are you sure? I do see android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED if I scan org.mozilla.fennec_fdroid_650110.apk with aapt.
