About a month, at least, my firefox focus has duplicating the characters, ever the first character and sometimes a piece of the word to. Honestly this text can't be writed on Focus, because I started to be angry with this problem. I love this browser but I can't use it this way. Please solve the problem I use a Samsung Galaxy A30, with last updates and I am from Brazil, Please ignore my bad English. Thank you!

I hope I can help.

Open the Android Settings app (typically a cogwheel icon).

Select Applications and find Firefox Focus.

Under Storage, clear the cache.

Do the same for your keyboard app.

Restart your device and you should find it is running much smoother.

Seburo, thanks for your time, but it doesn't solve the problem. I've tried to reinstall app, but this doesn't work too. This bug only occurs in focus app, all my others browsers, text editors are working normally.

I think I need to look into this one a bit further. In the meantime, I recomend that you try Firefox Preview. This is our new browser for Android, that has a private browsing mode built in that is equivalent to Firefox Focus.
