This latest update has it where I cannot save downloads where I want them. Like pictures. They USED to appear in Gallery. I used to be able to find them with a file manager but I can't now. I can still open them with gallery but it doesn't allow me to save them in an album. I can put them in a shared gallery folder, but I do NOT want that. I don't want them in cloud storage either. Help!

I wanted to download ppsspp, but when I tried to download it, it brought up a blank download, then it failed after 5 minutes. This happens everytime and I tried another browser and it worked there, so this is a Firefox issue. Here's a screenshot.

Specs: Android 10

Huawei Y8P

Firefox 81, updated to 82, still persists.

Hello, the taskbar cannot be opened when the Firefox browser is open. You always have to minimize the browser first so that the taskbar opens and closes again automatically. In all other open programs and browsers, the taskbar opens automatically when I move the mouse to the edge of the screen. Have already searched and tried all settings. I hope someone can help me.

Thank you

When typing in firefox search bar on my android, the typing seems to lag cau sing mass misspelling. This doesnt seem to be my keyboard as I've tested others and is thus likely a comparability issue with my Huawei P10 lite. This doesnt happen on my other devices or when pasting in the search bar.

Hello,

Since the last few updates. I believe it was the one where the tabs changed from side to side to on top of each other.

I have a problem where playing YouTube videos at 1.25 speed there is audio distortion. So voices do not sound human.

This used to work fine until that update happened. I waited a few updates to see if it got fixed. But just downloaded new update today and it's still a problem.

This works fine using Chrome or YouTube app, so it's only in Firefox where this issue occurs. I prefer to use Firefox as I have add blocker on YouTube.

Can this be fixed please? Additionally can the tabs be changed back to side to side view? I have over 100 tabs and it was quicker the previous way.

Thank you.

On Firefox desktop, I can bookmark any search engine and assign a keyword to it. Then, I can easily search using it with the keyword + search terms combination. For instance, I can bookmark Google search with the keyword "g", then search for restaurants through Google by typing "g restaurants" in the address bar.

On Firefox Android, I could reproduce the same behavior, until the beta update, when it stopped working. Manually adding a search engine through the settings menu and a %s string is way cumbersome and, many times, doesn't work, since some websites don't provide the address used for searching. Even when I can add a search engine, I have to manually browse through all of them, select the one I want, then, and only then, I can search.

The old way may look less intuitive, but on surface only. Adding a search engine was quick, easy, and most importantly, practical to use. Why can't both ways coexist?

Whenever I watch YouTube video on Firefox for Beta Android at normal speed, it is completely fine. But when I ""change the playback speed"", it becomes ""very jerky"". I tried using stable Firefox, but that same problem persisted.

Android 6.0 Firefox Beta 82.0.0-beta.6

Please fix it as it causes annoyance.

P.S: It runs well in my other device (Android 10.0) in Firefox Beta for Android having same version.

Hello,

What is the correct command to open Firefox in the Linux-Mint 20 command line with non-maximized window?

The command

firefox -height=300 -width=500 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/test

is ignoring the size of the window. What is the correct syntax/parameter?

Sincerely
