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.

Hello! I've got a problem with installing website's PWA on my phone through the Install option in the 3 dots menu.

The website I'm talking about is 9anime.to and it worked fine on Brave, but when I switched back to Firefox, it just does not work for some reason. It also does not make an app icon or whatever it was supposed to do.

I'll provide the google drive link for the video how it looks on my end.

I also included in the uploaded images, the Firefox version and as well my phone's version.

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?

Hello,

I choose to use FireFox when viewing video content. Only I have this persistent issue when I'm watching/listening a video/podcast and I need to goto a different Tab/Page or use an App or perform a different task, when I return to the tab with paused video it will reload and then the video page will refresh or re-open back to the video list/menu. This causes me to lose my position in the timeline and must find my place again manually. I've noticed this happens after a certain amount of time has passed, not much though, like 60 seconds or so, maybe more. This is frustrating and time consuming and I've noticed this doesn't occur in many chromium based browsers. That said, I strive to avoid google altogether and would rather stick it out with Firefox.

Thank you for reading my question, any advice is appreciated.

ON MY PHONE. I play a game on web3. For years it worked, now it does not respond. It shows the sign on screen and saved pw, BUT will not accept or function past that point. I have cleaned history, but nothing. I still play on my computer. But no longer on my phone. Sync was done. It used to work, that is what gets me.

Firefox Android 113 switches off Desktop Notifications for web version of YouTube

Hello, I believe that my Firefox android browser updated to version 113 on May 19, 2023. Up until that point, I had no issues with getting notifications sent to my device from the web version of YouTube accessed through Firefox. I could refresh the page and leave the Firefox app and still receive notifications. Ever since the update, every time the YouTube page is reloaded (which also happens when you leave the app) the Desktop Notifications toggle in the YouTube desktop mode settings switches to off. I can switch this toggle back on, the page is refreshed, and this toggle (and only this toggle) automatically switches to off. This happens every time and I am no longer receiving notificationsto my device. The YouTube app for Android is not involved in this, as I use Firefox to access the web version YouTube as an alternative. Please provide information that can help resolve this issue and/or please make a note of this issue so it can be resolved in the future. Thank you so much.

While browsing Amazon.com using the past several builds of the Nightly for Android, I get this most annoying bouncing pop-up tip that is a yellowish with black font saying to click on this heart icon to save the product. I have never seen this on any other browser for Android, and never on my Firefox on my laptop or desktop. Is there anyway to get rid of it? I cannot stand this and I have almost thrown my phone because of it many times. I have never thrown a phone before. I cannot explain why, but it pisses me off so very much!

Hi, I have the latest firefox on my Samsung A54 5G (and previously on my A71). I'll open firefox, do a few searches and eventually I'll do a search and firefox goes back to the last search results and does NOT show any links related to the new search. If I kill firefox and restart it, it works again. The problem is more irritating than it might sound because it seems to happen too frequently when I am trying to look something up - but when I try to reproduce the issue it's hard to reproduce. The key element may be that I need to have firefox open and idel for a while before the problem occurs. Any advice is welcome!
