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, this issue has been present for a long time for me, and with many versions of Firefox Nightly for Android.

I'm always using the latest nightly for browsing Youtube only, with a set of specific settings and addons (since we can't use profiles on Android yet)

My problem is I've configured the Homepage to never show anything but a few URLs I chose to pin, you can see my settings and my homepage in the screenshots attached.

Despite the "Recently visited" setting being disabled, sometimes, but not everytime, the last pages I visited are added to the Homepage, after the pinned sites. I have no idea what triggers it or not, if I'm doing something wrong or if it's a bug.

Thanks for your help !

Google Image Search Gallery View

I just did a Google image search on my pixel 8 and saw that all the image results were forced to "fit width" so I can only really see 1 result at a time. I have the "Google Search Fixer" installed and dialsabling it returns the image search view to gallery. But when I enable to addon it goes back to that "ft to wish" view.

I've looked through the options and tried searching for similar problems/solutions and found nothing. How do I return my Google image search view to gallery? It's really obnoxious and frustration to only be able to see 1 image at a time when searching.

Please reinstate media blocking

Woke up this morning and my stupid phone had updated to the new, awful, Firefox on Android: ‎ 119.0 (Build #2015980915), 367d60e851+ GV: 119.0-20231019122658 AS: 119.0 … (read more)

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 seems to take it upon itself to change my lockscreen background picture on my android whenever i am, or have been watching a video in the browser. How do i stop Firefox from changing the background picture of my phone's lockscreen. I really like the picture i set my lockscreen to, and i don't understand why anyone would think i want an app to change it ever

I have been trying to get the Add-on "sponsorblock" on Firefox for Android. However when I check the Add-on page for it, it tells me that I need a more updated version of Firefox. I have checked multiple times, and confirmed that I am already on the newest version and there are no updates for me to get. Is this add-on no longer supported on the Android version of this browser, or is there some other issue?

embedded audio players and youtube consistently buggy

I posted about it in a review, and per request, am restating the issue here:

the Firefox for Android app has consistent and ongoing issues with embedded audio players/embedded audio files (most often file types hosted on dropbox and embedded on a secondary website) where the audio file will either not load at all, refuse to download because it has timed out the file without playing, or stop half way through and refuse to reload.

So far, I've had about a 30% success rate with using these embedded audio players across platforms, with the specific websites themselves looking into broken links and finding no issue.

On the same vein, YouTube as used through the mobile browser, while more successful, seems to struggle to load the page while scrolling, and occasionally stops playing videos altogether, even when reloaded and hard restarted.

I am constantly getting notifications from Firefox and cannot cancel them. They appear on my login screen and on home screen (see screenshot). Cannot swipe them away and cant find way in FF. Only way to get them to go away is to restart phone.

Usually notification comes from an active web page but now getting them from Firefox itself. Current one just says "About home".

When I attempt to use the Firefox browser I now get a page saying I should download Firefox. I already have Firefox; have used it for years. Current version 119.0 Perhaps I should get rid of it entirely; and download it again? If so will it be able to recognize me by my current email and code? Obviously my email and codes won't change; so I must be able to use them if I reload Firefox/ Mozilla as new. This is the third attempt to solve this. The phone is an Android A10E

Hi,

I'm having this issue with clicking on links where when I click a link it opens a new tab but the new tab contains the current page. The link I'm trying to reach opens in the tab I was originally on. I can't see anywhere in the settings a solution to this and haven't seen anyone else have the same issue. Does anyone have a fix or is this a bug?

Thanks
