Firefox on Android is atrocious.

To me, browsing the web is equally important on Desktop and on Mobile.

I have a really powerful desktop PC and I use Firefox for Windows with uBlock Origin. The speed difference between a Chromium based browser and Firefox on my desktop is negligible.

On the other hand, using Firefox on Android is atrocious, laggy, sluggish, slow as hell. I used Bromite (the lightest and most privacy focused chromium browser on Android) and I don't wanna go back. Sure, I'll lose the pristine cosmetic filtering and blocking capabilities of uBlock origin but the websites will load twice/thrice as fast and the app feels fast.

Now, if I change browser on mobile I will have to change it on Desktop too, cause of features like Bookmark syncing, sending pages to mobile and viceversa ecc...

I need a solution. I like firefox, what they are doing as a non profit organization, the battle against Chromium, the fact that adblocking works better ecc... but I don't want to compromise on mobile performance.

What should I do? Switch to something like Brave or is there any solution? Thanks.

Hi,

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or developers. If you want to leave feedback for developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select either Share ideas and feedback… or Submit feedback…, depending on your Firefox version. Alternatively, you can use this link. Your feedback gets collected by a team of people who read it and gather data about the most common issues.

You can also file a bug report or feature request. See File a bug report or feature request for Mozilla products for details.
