For about 1 week now, Android Firefox nightly does not input my saved passwords into the password fields. Thankfully the regular Firefox app has no issues with inputting the passwords that are saved. Is this a bug with Firefox nightly Android?

Nightly version is 111.0a1

Why does Firefox insist that I use the mobile YouTube?

This problem has kept annoying me for months now: When I load my youtube subscriptions page on my tablet, Firefox keeps kicking me over to the mobile site (m.youtube.com instead of www.youtube.com) which is bloody annoying. Changing the m to www manually will do me no good, it gets changed back to m as soon as i hit enter. Turning on the desktop site switch in the menu will only work temporarily, it's only a matter of time before I get kicked back to the mobile site. It's not a question of IF it happens, it's a question of WHEN it happens.

The thing is that this ONLY happens with youtube in Firefox on my tablet, but not in Firefox on my phone, my computer or other websites, and it does not happen in opera on the tablet either. That tells me that it is a Firefox problem (maybe some setting?), not a YouTube problem.

So why does Firefox do this, and how can I stop it?

PS. It's the latest version of Firefox on a galaxy tab s2 running Android 7. No, updating to a newer version of Android is not an option :-( Thanks, Samsung!

The issue where Firefox on Android does apparent background restarts is still occurring in the most recent release builds.

This was first discussed in the now archived topic https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1379604

It is 100% reproducible. Steps:

1. Go to https://www.theguardian.com/uk 2. Open in background tab one or two internal links to stories in that website 3. Firefox is hang for e.g. 40s then reloads from scratch all open tabs including to other sites 4. The device will behave as if it was recently restarted with all other apps doing UI refresh activity when you next access them

The repro steps are truly simple.

Should we raise this as an iss with the website instead? e.g. Chrome does not and never has had a problem like this on that website.

Cheers,


108.2.0 (Build #2015925643), 78718ba91+ AC: 108.2.0, 9174b4e74f GV: 108.0.2-20230104165113 AS: 95.0.1

rampant false positive pull down to refresh gesture

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.

These "crashes" aren't in the Report, so I'm not sure what to do. I've pressed Quit, I've cleared the Cache (twice), and I've deleted and reinstalled the app. Firefox was working just fine until recently. These crashes only to seemingly happen on YouTube and Tumblr. It closes worse when I have the YouYube in Background Add-on on, but it isn't just because of that. If anyone knows how to fix this, feel free to answer.
