When I want to watch a video on fullscreen on my Samsung tablet, Firefox minimalizes throws me to my homescreen. After I go back to Firefox, the video is choppy and has a low fps. I fix it by forward and rewind the video by clicking on the side of the screen on video. Very annoying. Browser is up to date, please help

Hello world! (Sorry; had to.)

I just started using Firefox for Android, as a workaround to the problems I'm having with playing my YouTube playlists.

But, I'm having several problems in Firefox for Android.

1. Playlists (the actual lists of videos) cover the video that's currently playing. My workaround to this is to play in full screen mode, but that brings up problem

2. Full screen videos automatically switch to landscape orientation, despite system settings, with no apparent way to switch back to portrait orientation without also exiting full screen mode. I've tried rotating my phone with auto rotate on/off; neither setting has any affect on the orientation.

What's extremely frustrating about this is that any workaround is actually a workaround to a workaround to a workaround; it's workaroundception.

What I really really want is to be able to simply play my playlist/listen to it without having to jump through hoops and without having to burn through data like a bonfire burns through sticks.

IMO, the best solution would be to download the entire playlist:

https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-Hu9zPsGgiUKHoc2GeRo6ydKQMIQy8Pt&si=LzYVEe1sd8T1knZF

...in one go, and stick it on an mp3 player like it's 2009. So far, the only YouTube to mp3 sites I've found only download individual videos; not whole playlists. (And that's not really a Mozilla issue anyway; the Mozilla issues are the unwanted rotation and the video stack covering up the currently playing video.)

Hi! I been using youtube through firefox on my phone for awhile now. Mostly since it allows me to play the video when the screen is off.

I have now swapped phone to a HTC U23 Pro. After the change everytime that i look at a video now it stutters a lot. No matter the network connection.

On my old Samsung A71 it still works fine.

It works fine in the youtube app or through grayjay.

Have removed every add on i have and resinstalled firefox but the issue is the same.

Any tips on what i can do to fix it?

Hi,

I am a frequent user of Firefox on multiple platforms, including Android 14, where I frequently use DeX.

However, I am many times forced to use Chrome or Samsung Internet on DeX to get a professional computer desktop experience.

Firefox does not recognize different mouse button clicks and neither does it view websites with high resolution, not even after selecting "Desktop mode", but instead shows a zoomed-in phone view. (I gave tried selecting various zoom levels in settings.) There may be other shortcomings as well.

Perhaps some of the issues can be avoided by changing some settings? However, please address the issue of providing a full desktop experience in DeX. Thanks for a great browser in most other respects on multiple platforms.

I use Firefox with Video Background Play Fix. It worked properly on my old phone, but doesn't work on my current phone. Playing unexpectedly stops sometimes, usually when I launch another app, but sometimes in my pocket.

I tried to add to about:config (in firefox nigtly) browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory = false . There is no such option in current version. I tried to add manually, but it didn't help.

DEVS NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR IGNORANCE AND LACK OF CARING. On mobile app. Videos are choppy even after refreshing, clearing cache and data serve no fix.

Swiping up on video doesn't enter full screen mode.

These are known issues for over 4 years. Questions

1.) Why haven't devs fixes these issue. 2.) Why do devs rely on non-employees to mitigate issues. Instead of fixing issues themselves directly. 3.) No other browsing site has these issues, only FIREFOX. The issues are clearly from poor app design and bad coding, so why do devs not fix it eventhough 1000s of people have these issues? 4.) Despite all the negative reviews, devs turn a blind eye and don't fix any issues.
