So imagine your filling out a form online using firefox for android and you come across a question that you cant remember the answer to so you switch apps to check through your notes.

Upon finding the necessary info you switch back to firefox only for the page to refresh itself and for you to lose all your previous progress. Why???

I've also encountered this when paying for an item and i need to confirm the payment through my banking app. i go to the app, confirm the payment, switch back to firefox and the page refreshes and i have to start over!

Is it just me? Please fix this. It's the one thing that sucks about this otherwise great browser.

Sometimes notifications received on Android Firefox about the tabs sent from a desktop Firefox using "Send tab" function don't do anything when tapped.

If the Firefox is open then tapping brings it to the front. If not, Firefox is started with the previously opened tabs but the page that was sent from another device is not opened. The URL is clearly visible in the notification but it is ignored. I have to type it in manually.

This only happens occasionally, most of the time the notifications work as expected but when they don't it's a major frustration because there's no way to retrieve the URLs.

Firefox Nightly 110.0a1 (Build #2015925675), Sony Xperia 1 mk3, 61.2.A.0.382 release-keys Android 13

Been having issues with the refresh gesture, namely it activating when just trying to scroll up the page.

I'm not certain of the proper behaviour, but I've had pull down to refresh initiate with all kinds of downward swipes; fast, slow, short and long; and in various locations on the screen; centre, sides (close enough to also start back gesture), lower third; and even seen it wanting to refresh when simply tapping to stop inertia scroll, as well as when pressing and holding to keep screen alive for seconds before pulling down to return to the top.

Noticing it initiate, then releasing upward to cancel, then repeating the previous downward swipe intermittently triggers it again; sometimes it's gone, sometimes it triggers another once or twice, and one time it just would not stop and I couldn't scroll up the page no matter where on the screen I began to swipe down.

I'm presuming it's only meant to activate in upper third or even quarter, but regardless, this is a relatively recent (several days to a week, idk) issue that I'm dealing with, although it has become rife tonight.

Some websites seem better than others, and I was considering it was a fault of some designs, but alas I couldn't find any spots where I could consistently get it to happen; not even dragging from the top of the screen is working right now, so I have no idea what's going on.

https://ok2fly.com.au/ was a nightmare; tap anywhere to open a pop-up, scroll to bottom, then try to scroll up. I've got a great little screen record to demonstrate how inconsistent it is, if anyone wants.

Lemme know if there's anything else I can do to help diagnose this.

I've downloaded a calendar file 4 times from a website. I've checked all of my 2 download folders with internet and SD card. Not there. I 4 notifications listed next to the Firefox shortcut. Where the hell did Firefox send the files and how do I deal with the notifications. Not listed when I go into the settings. Beyond frustrating. Shouldn't be this hard. Urgh.

I have the latest version of Android 13 and Firefox up to date on my phone, but there's been some weird behavior when playing videos as of late. Videos refuse to properly go fullscreen now. When I tap the fullscreen button, the video moves to the center of the screen but stays in portrait orientation, which is obviously not what I want. In addition, picture-in-picture is not working at all, and the notification control panel (that lets you pause and play minimized videos from the notification) is not appearing even though notifications are not disabled for Firefox. Videos still play, but almost none of the features for them are working. What is going on? Can anyone help?
