Loading bar gets to a third of the way across then stops. No addons installed.

App will work fine for a little while then grind to a halt. Restarting eventually seems to work but only briefly.

I've had to put this ticket in on chrome because the page wouldn't load.

Same behaviour when browser is embedded in other apps.

I've tried clearing cache/data and reinstalling.

I'm trying to stick with FF as I've used it for many many years and I was hoping this would be fixed in an update but this is ridiculous.

What did you glue sniffing monkeys do to my phone? Firefox for Android automatically updated without my approval/permission and now I can't set a @#$%ing homepage. WTF? Is there any way to revert to the old version? What possible reason can you offer me for eliminating the ability to set a homepage? Also is there any way to disable updates? I used to think that you guys were the best but with this kind of authoritarian BS I envision uninstalling this crap and using another browser. Again, what possible reason can you offer me for these changes? It has to be money, right? It is disgusting

I encountered a webpage that cannot be displayed normally again, from mafengwo.cn, which is a very aggressive Chinese website and always forces users to install their App.

http://www.mafengwo.cn/poi/75497300.html

The original page is http://m.mafengwo.cn/...., which keeps letting me download and install their app, so I changed it manually to www.mafengwo.cn/.... and switched firefox to Desktop mode, and it displays as the screenshot below. But this page is displayed correctly in Via browser and Samsung explorer (both based on Chromium? )

I am using Firefox on an Android device with a keyboard attached. I'd like to watch videos on sites like Youtube and use the keyboard for basic controls such as pause and skip forward. This does not work when I use the mobile version of Youtube; all keyboard input is ignored when playing a video.

If I switch to the desktop version of Youtube, the keyboard controls work, but fullscreen zooming is now broken. When I tap the fullscreen icon the site zooms to larger than the phone's screen, rather than fitting in the screen. And I cannot pan or pinch zoom the image, so it is unusable in this state. Why must this be so difficult?

For reference my device has a 1440 by 2880 (18:9) aspect ratio, though I don't know if that matters.

I'm sure there's a Firefox extension somewhere that could fix this, but in your infinite wisdom only 9 handpicked extensions work on Firefox now. (If it was not apparent, your decision-making on that matter is extremely unappreciated.)

Greetings, about week or more ago whenever I would open Firefox two instances would pop up and to fully close Firefox I would have to exit out of both. While it is a rather small inconvenience having to swipe twice to fully quit the app it's slowly becoming more annoying especially when I am going through my open apps and two Firefox browsers get in the way of me finding the app I need or when I am trying to look at something from another open app quickly. Any help would be appreciated. I have a Pixel 3a running Android 11 and Firefox is updated to the most recent version. Also, I do not have any add-ons or pluggins. I have included a screen shot of what it looks like Thank you!

I've no add-ons but uBlock installed, so it's not caused by an add-on that manages downloads.

This is a very annoying bug, and should've just stuck with the previous tile Tab Pages, instead of a list with thumbnail.

How to replicate this bug on Firefox Android 80.1.3?

1. Make sure that viewing the Tab Pages, ensure that it is filled the screen, so you need to scroll up and down. 2. Just create a new tab page from a link, though, DO NOT switch to it immediately. 3. Now go to view Tab Pages.

Result:

1. The new tab page which you opened from a link, but didn't switch, is NOT recognised as the 'First' or 'Newest' tab page. 2. The current tab page you are currently viewing is recognised as the 'First' or 'Newest' tab page. 3. Scrolling Down (because the new tab page is up), IT DOESN'T SCROLL UP, instead, it recognises that I'm closing the Tab Pages.

How to view the first tab page?

1. Scroll up a little to view an older tab page 2. Scroll down.

Prior to the recent Firefox for Android upgrade, I was able to watch the livestream of my church's worship service. The livestream always initiates with a "Tap to unmute" pop-up over the video. That pop-up is apparently blocked by default in the new Firefox for Android, so I have no way to turn on audio. As a result, I am forced to switch to Chrome. The "Tap to unmute" pop-up displays and functions properly in Chrome, although Chrome is much more reluctant to continue playing in background or with the screen off, something I always appreciated in Firefox if I needed to save battery by turning off the screen.

What can I do to enable the "Tap to unmute" pop-up so I can go back to Firefox? Thank you for any help you can offer, C.C.

Hi there,

I have recently returned to Firefox for android and I've noticed a bug on my Huawei P30.

When downloading images (from any website) those images do not show up in the Huawei gallery. I can see them in my file manager, and only upon moving them to a new location do they show up. However if copied back to the download folder, the image now appears in Gallery. It is as if the gallery does not have permission to view the file, or the image file is somehow locked.

I have tried switching the location in Nightly and Beta versions using about:config but the issue persists and this is of course not possible in the release version.

Any ideas or help? It is frustrating to have to navigate to my downloads folder in my file manager every time I wish to access or share a photo I've downloaded.

Hi I have been happy a Firefox user for 15 years. The reason I moved to Firefox from Internet Explorer all those years ago was that a friend showed me how to have several tabs open in one browser window on my PC. Great! I was hooked. I now use Firefox on my laptop, phone and tablet. On my Android tablet, a Samsung S5e, the recent update has just taken my tab bar away and that has made it unusable for me. Real shame as I will now move to another browser on that. On my Android phone, the tabs are still accessible, but instead of being tiled, there is a list so I only see half the number (typically 5 instead of 10). That is not ideal, but just about manageable.

Can you fix the tab issue on my tablet, or can I revert back to the previous version of Firefox for Android?

Many thanks Martin
