Hi! Have been using Firefox for Android for years. Cannot solve the following issue: trying to download a large file over (slow?) WiFi displays no signs of a download in progress (except for WiFi activity indicator in the top panel) and nothing happens (no files in the download folder, no records in the Firefox downloads list). If I retry it sometimes works. If I start another browser (Samsung Internet) the download works fine. The device is Samsung Note 8 with the latest updates installed (Android 9). The problem does not reproduce over mobile data connection (4G internet mostly, faster than the WiFi connection I use). Firefox is 92.1.1 but I have seen the issue with all previous versions in the last couple of years.

Sample scenario to reproduce: 1. open https://echo.msk.ru/programs/observation/2909078-echo/ 2. tap and hold the download tab above the video 3. a popup windows appears with the https://cdn.echo.msk.ru/snd/2021-09-25-observation-1210-3532210.mp3 title, select "Download link" (is there any other way in Firefox to download the link?) 4. the popup window disappears and nothing seems to be going on... If I go to "3 dots" menu > Downloads the file is not listed there. 5. Sometimes the download does succeed. In this case I see a notification from the Download manager in the top panel which reads 2021-09-25-observation-1210-3532210(3).mp3 was downloaded where the '(3)' suggests the previous 2 attempts to download the file did try to create the file on the device! The file is about 63 MB.

Thanks, Dmitry

21:9 ultrawide videos that full-screen correctly on the YouTube app do not take up the whole 21:9 (2400x1080) screen of my Oneplus 9 when viewed via Firefox.

Ultrawide videos on YouTube leave little black bars on every side, while on Vimeo they get pushed into the bottom right with massive black boxes on the top and left.

I'd prefer to use Google's apps as little as possible due to forced ads and lacking privacy, which is why I'm interested in this being fixed. Most YT videos are still 16:9 and they display correctly, but it'd be nice to get the 21:9 that is the new default in smartphones to get working as well.

小米手机安全键盘会造成火狐浏览器卡死,有时还会自动退出

手机:小米11pro 中国版 miui版本:12.5.12 火狐浏览器版本:google play 版 92.1.1

描述:在火狐中打开只要是输入密码的网页,手机调用小米安全键盘,浏览器就会卡主,有时会卡死。 这种现象100%出现,希望你们检查一下,我同时也向小米公司反馈了,小米还没有答复。
