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.

Hi,

Taken the following quote from your FAQ regarding Firefox Android:

"Delete a specific webpage from your browsing history"

This quite simply does not work. I am trying to delete a webpage, but it still shows up on "Firefox suggests" when typing similar words in search bar in browser.

Additional info just in case:

  • No, not confusing this with my google search history.
  • No, I am not syncing the history back in the android browser.

Any suggestions?

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

‘Pay with PayPal’ functionality on websites is broken for me and has been across updates of both Firefox and iPadOS for as long as I can remember at this point. I’m using an iPadPro running iOS 16.7.2 with Firefox for iOS version 120.4 (36613). When I’m checking out at e-commerce sites (e.g., J Crew), and I click on the PayPal button when selecting a form of payment, a new tab opens, but it’s literally blank — nothing even tries to connect or load. This happens across e-commerce sites. It doesn’t happen with Firefox on my PC/Windows laptop or on my iPad with other browsers (Chrome, Safari). I have tried everything that I can uninstall/reinstall, deactivate, or toggle, and nothing seems to fix this. I have cross-site tracking disabled in iOS. Some people have suggested that websites are not fully supporting Firefox any longer or that there is a problem with Firefox and Apple’s proprietary rendering engine. I’m really at the end of my wits about this. After having used Firefox faithfully since Netscape disappeared, I’m honestly on the verge of giving up. Please help.

This is a new issue that just started occuring this month Nov/2023. Firefox for Android has suddenly developed an issue where instead of saving to the download folder and renaming the file with (1), (2), etc. It will save to a random folder and overwrite an existing file with the same name.

Noticed occuring on ebay images because they have the same naming structure.

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!

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.

To whom this may concern,

For the past 2-3 weeks none of the drop down menus I've tried to use have worked. Whenever I try to use one or select something on a drop down menu in mobile, the menu does not register my selection and remains on its default setting/option.

I know it has to be an issue with Firefox iOS specifically because when I opened the page on safari (mobile) the drop down menu worked fine; same with google chrome (ios) and the desktop version of firefox (on mac).

I tried to fix it be clearing my private data and the website data from firefox ios, but it didn't do anything.

I don't know what else to do and it's driving me crazy.

Please help!

PS If it's relevent, my firefox ios is up to date and currently running Firefox 116.3, though the issue was also present in 116.2 and whichever version(s) of firefox was running at the beginning of August 2023.

I have been using Firefox on ios for a long time and recently have started to notice a couple of frustrating issues-

  • When I try to click on the menu while the site is scrolling, the app freezes and the menu sometimes opens after several seconds.
  • Refreshing the facebook page sometimes shows a login page even though I am logged in. If I just refresh the page without entry credentials, it takes me to the news feed. Happened for linkedin as well.

I’m using the latest version of the app and latest version of ios 16 Request you to please provide steps to resolve this (any settings change on phone or app)

I posted a review on the iOS market and received an email asking to post on this forum.

Firefox freezes several times an hour. It crashes every three hours. I installed the Adblock Pro extension (free version). Maybe it’s related but I have not noticed anything related to the extension. Safari doesn’t crash and uses the same extension.

The only point to use Firefox on iOS is the password manager and dark mode. Printing is inferior because it forces pagination.

I’ve been using Firefox synced to my account on my iPad for a while with no problems, and only started running into this problem today. The app for the most part works normally, but when I open specifically the history tab the whole app crashes. I can still use Firefox on my android and computer completely fine, and have tried clearing some of my history using my phone, to no avail. Only the history tab does this- downloads, bookmarks, and reading list are all fine. Any advice on how to fix this?
