Dear Mozilla Firefox team,

I am writing to request a feature for the Firefox Android app that would allow users to follow a homepage wallpaper from the gallery. This feature would enable users to customize their browser experience by choosing a wallpaper that suits their preferences and mood. The wallpaper can be choosen from the image gallery of User. This feature available in edge browser android

I think this feature would enhance the aesthetic appeal and functionality of the Firefox Android app, as well as increase user engagement and satisfaction. It would also showcase the diversity and creativity of the Firefox community, as users could submit their own wallpapers to the gallery or vote for their favorites.

I hope you will consider adding this feature to the Firefox Android app in the future. Thank you for your time and attention.

Sincerely, B R Shriradhakrishnasharnam (A Firefox User)

When I want to watch a video on fullscreen on my Samsung tablet, Firefox minimalizes throws me to my homescreen. After I go back to Firefox, the video is choppy and has a low fps. I fix it by forward and rewind the video by clicking on the side of the screen. Very annoying. Browser is up to date, please help

Noticed my phone having terrible battery life, from battery usage you can see that Firefox is highly likely one of the main culprits. I have observed the same over a few days on the last two Firefox builds. It seems that it's not respecting the "Restricted" battery usage in Android (or Android is not restricting it, I have no idea), but you can see today's battery usage linked here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/pMByjqq6Q5GigcQu8

On my Android phone, Xiaomi Mi12T Pro, when i leave Firefox and open it up again, it always reloads the before opened tabs page. I disabled all battery optimization for this app and it still has to reload the tab after having the app closed for a small time.

When playing a video on YouTube the video is choppy and drops around 2/3 of the frames. This happens on every video that I click on.

I have found that if I double tap to jump back 10 seconds in the video it will no longer drop frames and play smoothly, but if I change the playback resolution it returns to being choppy until jumping in the video again.

I am currently running the latest stable download from the play store, and my phone is a OnePlus 8t.

For awhile now since I last updated the android app it's started freezing after awhile when I try to open a new tab or type in the address bar. Sometimes it looks like it's opening a new tab but it's just a duplicate of a different tab then it freezes. Restarting the app makes it work again but it won't remember the last thing I was doing and the history shows up entirely blank. Even closing the app before it freezes it won't remember what I just had open

To my horror I was seeing images on webpages, totally ruining my browsing experience. The main reason I use firefox on Android is because it allows me to turn off media. I don't want to see any of that, almost always entirely irrelevant, distraction. Now I'm going to have to use Samsung internet and continually click reader mode. This is NOT about ad blocking, it is not about saving data. It is about drastically improving the browsing experience. Please reinstate blocking of all images and videos.

Firefox has been a great browser on my new S22 however I have noticed recently that it has been dropping my battery percentage extremely fast, and I notice its lower almost every minute I check. This is confirmed in the battery settings menu where it shows an abnormally high amount of usage, when I mainly use Firefox for general browsing and close background tabs.

Hello!

Firefox on Android won't display pop-ups. I've checked privacy setting but there's no checkbox for a popup blocker. Also tried about:config but didn't find any setting to change. Any ideas on how to be sure Firefox is comfigured to allow popups? I participate on a Zoom webinar and can't start Zoom through Firefox so have to use Chrome.

Thanks!

This applies to the latest Firefox for Android version (this issue did not occur with the previous version). I manually closed my tabs and closed the Firefox app when I exit. However, when I open the app again, the previously closed tabs are there as if they were never closed. This is fixed if I delete browsing data but, obviously, this is not an ideal solution. I have tried to attach a short clip of this issue in action but it will not upload. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Firefox for Android is constantly hanging on my Xiaomi MI9 (Android 11). Let's say I open the Firefox, browsing some time, then open another tab and it's hanging. I had to force stop it and restart. This is happening every day multiple times per day. I also noticed that "Share" menu doesn't load anything, neither my devices nor applications, if the Firefox is about to start hanging. If I open any link in a new tab after I see that I cannot share the current page - it will be hanging. It also often starts hanging when I click the URL bar, when I try to copy the URL of the current page. I cannot willingly reproduce the issue. Sometimes it just works great no matter how much I was browsing and how many apps I switched. Sometimes it starts hanging very close after loading the browser. The very usual pattern is the following: I open the browser, start searching something, like "flight tickets", go to some site, and then open any link from this site in a new tab. And it starts hanging. This happens let's say 5-10 times per day. Sometimes it happens every time repeatedly, one after another. But sometimes not. I'm using latest version of Firefox from Play store.

Hi,

I have been watching YouTube videos on firefox android and have been clicking ful screen and landscape has been fine. Then over night a few days ago, it stopped. When I turn the phone to landscape, the video sound is playing but the video is blank, with no picture. It is fine in normal portrait just not when I click full screen when it was working.

I've cleared the cache and history, I've even unistalled Firefox and reinstalled it twice, once from the play store and once as the apk but to no avail. I have also disabled adons, tried the picture to picture, and autoplay but nothing works.

Any help to rectify and return my viewing would be appreciated.
