Screen width scaling changes when there is a wider graphic on a page

When reading certain Web pages such as this one https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2021/06/17/economy-needs-prosperous-london-whether-north-likes-not/

the screen width changes to match the graphic when it gets loaded, meaning that from that point onwards you have to scroll the page left and right to be able to read it. You could also zoom out, but that usually makes the text so small it's unreadable.

This doesn't happen on Chrome browsing the same page, the graphic is scaled to fit the screen width rather than the screen width scaling to fit the graphic.

If you are worried about the graphic becoming unviewable if it is scaled to the screen width, perhaps it can be kept at original scale but so can the rest of the text on the page, so you can continue to read sensible sized text without scrolling left/right, and only need to scroll/zoom if you want to see the full width graphic.

The first two screen shots attached are from FF, the second two are the same page but in Chrome.

Amid countless issues I have with the new Android version of Firefox, a few stand out as most important:

The tab system. I can no longer move tabs around, this was an essential function. Also, they load from the bottom, even though I immediately switched my address bar back to the top. Also, they don't fill the whole screen. Why? The order of the tabs is newest on top. This makes no sense. Newest tab should always be on the bottom of the list.

Opening a new tab. In the old version, I just had to doubleclick the tab next to the address, and it opened a new tab in less than a second. Now I have to hold the button down and then press again for new tab. It's so much slower.

Bookmarks. In the old version, I could swipe left or right on the new tab screen and go into bookmarks/history immediately. Now, I have to open them through the menu. Also, they open very slowly, 3-4 seconds or so, instead of instantly. Another thing is that the size of the font in bookmark tab is bigger for no apparent reason.

Overall, it's a worse user experience in every way I can imagine. The only thing I don't hate about it is that they didn't remove the option to put the address bar back on top. The old Android version was almost perfect in my eyes, with only 1 issue I can even remember having with it, and it wasn't that important. It's a shame that it's been discarded for this mess.

Every time I "tab out" to another app on my phone, and tab back in yo Firefox, it causes the page to reload.

I'm using a Galaxy S20+, so there is no shortage of RAM or any system specification - and this issue does not happen with Samsung Internet or Google Chrome.

Can this be fixed - else I will have to return to Samsung Internet.

It's very annoying having to redo forms etc. just because I switched back and forth between apps.

"Tab Closed, Undo" Button Directly Over The Ability To Close The Next Tab. ALSO STILL CAN'T REORDER TABS IN TAB LIST.

There is a design flaw in a recent update of firefox for android. When I am trying to close tabs quickly from the bottom, the "tab closed, undo" button is now positioned directly over the X mark on the next tab to close the next one and I have to wait until it goes away to close the next tab. This is extremely frustrating and I am hoping this is fixed soon. It is taking 3 times as long to close my tabs in the order I would like to. The button just needs to be very slightly thinner and the X mark for the next tab will not be blocked anymore.

I ALSO WANT TO ADD THAT I STILL CANNOT REORDER MY TABS ON ANDROID AND IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE. PLEASE FIX!!!!

Hello! This is an odd one.

I often read stories on the app, and the app (most of the time) starts the page at the top. Doesn't matter if I was halfway through or almost down at the bottom of the page. 'Opening the app' is also a term I'm using very broadly right now, sometimes the page 'refreshes' if I lock the screen and unlock it a minute later, sometimes it can be me switching to another tab, sometimes it can be me switching to another app and then back a few seconds later. Hell, sometimes I'm just checking out my Recent Apps screen and then, boom, Top Of The Page. So, the app doesn't close, but the page behaves like it does. Site that it happens mostly on is AO3.

Add-ons in use are uBlock origin, Privacy Possum, Privacy Badger, HTTPS Everywhere, Bitwarden, Decentraleyes. Power Saving mode is enabled.

I can't set up sync. I have Firefox for Mac 89.0 on a MacBook and Firefox for Android 89.1.1 on a Samsung Galaxy. I have signed into my Firefox account on both. When I attempt to link the two to sync, I am given a QR Code on the Mac screen. I snap a picture of the QR Code using the Scan button on Firefox for Android, but I always get an error message on my phone stating "Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within a Firefox app". By using the scan button near the Firefox for Android address bar, I thought I was within the Firefox app. I don't understand what I'm supposed to do differently.

On Firefox for Android, while scrolling certain websites such as Google and Wikipedia, the toolbar disappears normally while scrolling down, but periodically reappears without me changing anything. This is not an issue with the way I scroll, as this issue started several weeks ago. This is likely an issue with my phone's touchscreen, but it doesn't happen to this degree in other apps, and it doesn't happen at all in other browsers.

Is this a common issue with a solution? And if not, is there a way to permanently pin the toolbar to the top of the screen so it doesn't disappear after scrolling down?
