Hi,

My apps are automatically updating so I cannot tell what triggered these crashes. But Firefox now crashes continuously, as soon as I start the app.

I am running an up to date iOS 15.6 on iPhone XS.

It is impossible to use Firefox on my iPhone, not even for one second.

I hope you can fix this.

Dear Mozilla support,

For a while I have the problem that when I want to watch a video fullscreen on a website e.g. youtube, inline video etc. Firefox stops and completely closes. This is only the first time when I play the video. When I re-open the browser I can continue watching the video fullscreen without any problem. I don't receive any error messages.

Attached the specs of my phone and Firefox browser.

Kind regards, Rick

Once a while Firefox would freeze up and when that happens it would without fail reboots the phone if the phone goes to sleep and if I don't force close the app quickly. It might've done so anyway without putting it to sleep but I haven't tested leaving the screen on long enough. I noticed that if I was quick enough and force stop the app the phone doesn't reboot, but that window is really short. Maybe 2 seconds or so. Suffice to say force stopping didn't always work since the window is so short. When Firefox freezes other apps and phone functions work normally. It's been ongoing for a while through multiple updates. I see some people have already reported this same issue here. Can Mozilla fix this please? I have uBlock origin addon installed thanks. Also this never happened with my Pixel 3 phone which I was using up until a few months back so maybe it's pixel 6a specific. Alot of people have this same issue with pxiel6a from googling. It can freeze on any site I visit but one example is reddit.

Hello,

I am getting a frequent freeze in the Android app and then shortly after a crash. Info: - happens on FF, FF Beta, and FF Nightly,and reinstall/phone reset didn't fix. - Samsung Galaxy SM-G965U running Android 10. - every error starts with java.lang.OutofMemoryError. - it never happens just on startup, just on auto fill, or some of the similar crash reports I've seen around here. - it does appear to be site-specific, but sometimes the site works and sometimes it does not: if I close the last tab after a crash, it will usually work for awhile. - Sync and disabling Add-ons doesnt fix it, although perhaps its worse with uBlock Origin enabled (not conclusively)

Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. Whenever you login a site, Firefox does not remember the cookies from the login. So when you close the app and open it later, so you need to login again.
  1. Firefox crashes a lot since iOS 16 and now too on 16.1, and now also since the release iPadOS 16.1. This makes the app difficult to use and really bad.

Both are very frustrating and important issue, please fix it!

I have a Blackview Tab16 (10" screen), which I bought last year; it was running Firefox quite happily until a couple of months ago. Now when I click on the icon, I get a sort of 'welcome' screen (with some message about a search widget?) for a fraction of a second, then FF closes and I get an error message saying 'Sorry. Firefox had a problem and crashed.' The version of FF is 126.0. I was told to try clearing the cache, but there is nothing there to clear! The tablet is running Android 12 / DoKe OS V3.0.

I have an 8" Blackview tablet which - despite needing to be plugged in to run all the time! - opens & runs Firefox perfectly happily. It's my main browser on my MacBook as well, and will run on my iPhone.

Hi,

Since I've installed the latest Samsung OneUI6/Android 14, Firefox keeps crashing randomly. There was a firefox update after (120.1.0, build #2015989146), but same behavior. When opening accessing a new url (either new tab or existing tab). No message displayed, simply closes. Everything is up to date, non rooted galaxy S23 ultra with Android 14/OneUI 6. Already cleared firefox app cache, uninstalled and reinstalled (this worked for a few hours, but it's back to same behavior).

Any ideas?

Steps to reproduce : - go to YouTube - open a video - press the full screen button or tilt the phone sideways to trigger full screen - Firefox crashes and forces back to home screen - if opening Firefox again only half of the video component shows as in portrait mode, rest is black screen - if attempting to go side/full screen does properly show the video, but going back again to normal screen still shows the half black screen

I can reproduce this with a almost 100% rate, it only fixes itself by restarting Firefox, where it will work until phone is put to sleep mode.

I tried reinstalling Firefox from scratch, as well as deleting my browser cache and it didn't fix.

I'm having the same problem as this guy.

I have a large number of open tabs in Firefox on my iPhone, a mixture of old and very old. I've been trying to go through the tabs and deal with them -- in some sense they are all todo items that I left open at least semi-deliberately.

If I tap on a thumbnail to load a tab, Firefox instead loads a blank page. If I tap the address bar after that, Firefox loads the new tab page, not the site corresponding to the tab that I selected. If I tap and hold a tab's thumbnail, Firefox crashes.

It was the case temporarily (possibly a bug) that some of these tabs would place a TLS failure icon in the left of the address bar when selected, while the blank page was displayed. Tapping on that would display the tab title, but not the tab URL. No longer is that TLS failure icon ever visible.

Hi,

We use about ten Android tablets running Firefox in our shop for our employees to enter on a webpage daily some informations. Tablets are programmed to keep display active 24h/7d, firefox is pinned so the app stay opened and users don't go to other app. The extension LeechBlock NG prevent users from accessing other webistes. Everything work well except on mondays morning.

Without fault first person to try to connect on the website will see the app crash to the desktop. Since the app is pinned user will have to wait for a supervisor to come in and unpin the crashed (and invisible) app, re-launch it and pin it. Then it will work all week without issue as long as the tablet is used at least once a day. We recently added a new tablet which is used less than others and that one does crash during the week but never twice in same day. Here's the crash report that we have (I checked multiples tablets and they all share the same crash code):

Wondering if someone can help me decypher this to fix/prevent it. Is it the extension or browser itself that cause the crash if the page hasn't changed long enough? Thanks for suggestions (I will not consider "have you tried without the extension" as a valid suggestion)

Sometimes when I click full-screen on a video, the app view disappears, and I am back out on the home screen. I still hear the video, and can switch back to Firefox and try full-screen again. It usually (maybe always) works the second time.

When it happens, I can briefly see the video go full-screen and rotate to landscape. When the view has disappeared the screen rotates back to portrait. Whenever a video stays in portrait mode when going full-screen, the problem does not occur.

Even when closing firefox, I can still hear the video. So I think it is related to this issue: [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1420245]

What I have tried:

  • Switching versions of firefox, they all have the same issue; Firefox, Firefox Nightly, and Fennec.
  • Clearing cache and disabling add-ons has not worked, but seemed to make it happen less frequently for a while (not sure).
  • I tried activating automatic screen rotation, but this made the problem worse. It would then not work the second time and firefox would only display part of the website in the top right corner of the screen. Closing it and re-opening it multiple times did not work. I had to turn auto-rotate back off.
  • I'm using the KISS launcher. Tried switching to various other launchers, but it made no difference.
