I cannot view CNBC investing club videos (yes, I'm logged in), in Firefox on Android 13 immediately after yesterday's Android update.

Chrome can view videos perfectly.

Firefox should adjust for the latest Android update.

Firefox version 109.1.1 (Build #2015927169), 8f4899e33+

Android build TP1A.220624.014.A136USQU3CVK9

Hi,

I cannot figure out how to get Firefox to browse to my local website IMPI server maintenance website on my LAN which uses http protocol. I've tried Firefox troubleshoot mode and also setting the https redirect off - which has zero effect. Any ideas would be welcome because I'm locked out of my server IMPI now.

Please give me solution. Thanks

Some websites still open in app, even when that app is set to NOT open supported links

In Firefox settings, I DO have "Open links in apps" enabled, because I do want most sites to do this. However, there are some specific sites that I DON'T want to open in app. For most of these (e.g. Aurora Store), it is sufficient to open the App Info (in Android system Settings) and disable "Open supported links" (and also tap the "clear default preferences" button, if it's there). For those apps where I've disabled supported links, webpages will load normally in the browser, and there won't even be an "Open in app" option from the 3-dot dropdown menu for the website.

The problem is, some apps that have supported links disabled will still be opened when a link to their website is tapped in browser. One example of this is Tumblr. Tapping a link to any tumblr.com site will launch the Tumblr app instead (which is a particular problem because the Tumblr app currently has a bug where it cannot open links to specific pages, so it navigates to the homepage instead, which is useless. For this reason, it's imperative that Tumblr links open only in browser, at least until Tumblr fixes their bugs.)

Is there anything that I'm missing that will definitely prevent FF from launching an app, when that app is set to NOT open supported links? Is this a FF mobile bug that I should file on Bugzilla? Are there any workarounds (perhaps like a 3rd-party app that intercepts the intent to open Tumblr and redirects it back to the browser)?

Weird white stripes on Firefox Android

Hey. I hope no one asked this question before because I could not find it. I am trying to build a website, that contains a header, a main-part, and a footer. All of them together should make up 100% of the screen size. The height of the header and footer are fixed to 100px each, so the main part must be adjustable. On desktop this is easy accomplishable in CSS trough: height: calc(100vh – 200px). On mobile however, 100vh does not include the URL bar. Therefore, I used JavaScript. Basically, I am checking if the device used is a mobile one. If so, I use window.innerheight and subtract 200px from it. That fixes the issue, at least on some mobile browsers. And here is where the fun begins:

On Brave-Android it works as expected. On Firefox-Android however, it does not work at all. There are two white stripes on the site. One under the iframe that holds the header and the other at the very bottom of the site.

I have added two screenshots to this question. One screenshot shows how it is supposed to look, the other one shows the problem I am facing.

If you want to check out the code, I did upload everything to GitHub. The site itself is in German, but all the variable are in English.

Whatever the website I visit maybe be, the full website URL is never shown. For example when I visit Facebook it shows "m.facebook.com" instead of "https://m.facebook.com". This also happens for websites using "http://" instead of "https://". I know that in the PC version of Firefox this can be fixed by changing the "browser.urlbar.trimURLs" setting in the "about:config" page so that the URL will be completely shown whatever the website may be. I have tried this in Firefox for Android though, but it doesn't work. The "about:config" page just displays a blank white page instead of any settings. Is there any way for me to fix this? P.S.: I use Firefox for Android on my tablet. I don't know what is the case for phones.

Hey, Firefox, here are two things that need to be developed/produced/made-to-happen. The ability to: 1) When watching a playlist on YouTube, on full screen, there is currently no button to skip ahead (or go backward) to the next video in the playlist. We have to inconveniently "come out of" full screen to skip ahead (or go back to the previous) to the next video, and then of course re-engage full screen. I'd think by now, in 2023, you could have developed that. You should make Firefox on Android as close to the way the actual YouTube app operates as possible. 2) When in YouTube, the comments, guys...obviously you know you only offer the option to view the comment section as what YouTube calls "Top comments" but you currently don't offer the option to switch to the "Newest first" view. Come on, guys. We should have that option by now in Firefox mobile browser.

Thanks.

And I'm not interested in any stupid people or trolls replying to this. It's just feedback for the Mozilla Firefox company.

Favicon being overridden by images from webpages instead

I've noticed since I've replaced my Samsung tablet with a newer version (S6 Lite running Android 12) that this version of Firefox is not picking up the favicon on my website. When I save the website shortcut to my homescreen, instead of the favicon Firefox is picking up the first image it finds on the page.

So - if I save all five webpages of my website to my tablet, each will have a different image - and none of them will be my favicon. The image from my tablet screen, attached (5 rows x 6 icons, against a beach backdrop) - shows three of the pages from my website, circled in yellow. You can see that none of them have picked up my fish favicon, and some of them have picked up the Etsy image link instead.

This problem of the favicon being ignored isn't being replicated elsewhere - my PC (very ancient, running an up to date Firefox browser) shows the favicon in the browser toolbar and on the homescreen, and my Samsung phone (equally ancient, running an up to date Chrome browser) shows the generic alphabet letter icon when the website is saved to my homescreen (this is not a problem, I'm just mentioning it). Images attached.

Is there a simple fix for the favicon being overridden, or a workaround? I'd be grateful if someone could explain why it's happened and what I can do to fix it. I'm conscious that if someone saved my website to their browser using just the favicon and no text, as I do, they might simply delete it if they don't recognise the favicon. Thanks in advance. Rachel
