I have 2 keyboards setup. Default is Finnish and secondary for English. For some reason firefox has started to default to english and even though I change it from scrolling on spacebar, it defaults back to english every single time i open / close the keyboard (aka. start typing something again)

I am using the default Samsung keyboard (S20). I tried to remove the English keyboard completly and my phone is now running a single keyboard with FIN only. But for some reason firefox still keeps defaulting to EN-US.

This is really annoying. Any ideas on fixing the issue? This is the only app that keeps doing this.

when I open the game of hearts on my desk top Windows 10, I get a pop up add asking if I want to install new drivers. I ignore it or delete it and start the game; however, before finishing the game it freezes and will not respond to inputs. Also, something similar happens when I play solitare, but there isn't any pop up adds--the response to trying to move the cards is slow and eventually stops all together.

Hi, I am pretty hopeful about the new FF with GeckoView. Using it for a bit it seems pretty good, but there are a few issues (79.1.0-beta.1)

First of all, there have been some layout issues, particularly noticeable on Twitter (I do not use apps where a viable mobile site exists). On Twitter, if I press the "retweet" icon it has a little slider that comes up from the bottom with options to just retweet or retweet with comment. In this version, but not in 68.11.0, that slider jitters up and down a bit. Usually if you scroll up or down slightly it then stabilizes, but even then it can be hard to hit the correct option, as if the visual and the interaction area are not quite aligned.

Aside from that there are some UI/UX issues.

On site where there are apps available (bing, twitter, FB, others), FF puts a blue dot notification badge on the triple dot dropdown menu, if you open it it will have an item to "open in app" or "download app" (depending on if installed or not). I don't mind the menu item being there, even though I almost never want it, but I need a way to turn off that blue dot - all such notification badges are very distracting to me, I either respond to them right away (e.g. messages) or I turn them off totally.

The other big issue is tabs, the newer tab layout wastes far too much space, the one in FF 68 was much better... and though I mostly hate taking UI direction from Chrome, mobile tabs is one rare case of them doing it well. Either of those layouts would be much better than the FF79 tab layout.

Oh, and just to make sure... whatever you do, please don't get rid of the option to put the address on the top, I really need that one. I hate to use a Blink browser, but I *will* switch if the URL bar is forced to the bottom.

Hello,

Starting yesterday, when I try to go to google.com in the firefox browser, I am redirected to a url for Google that is in the following format: https://www.google.com/#spf=************* [asterisks represent a string of 13 numbers]. I dont get this when I use other browsers to go to google.com. i have run updates and cleared cache and cookies all to no avail. I also have run all updates on firefox and google apps.

Anyone else experiencing this? Any idea why all of a sudden I am seeing the spf snippet added to the google.com url? Any idea how to fix the matter? And perhaps it is a benign issue, but I wanted to learn more so I can know whether or not to pay it any mind. Thanks!

Android Facebook Desktop mode won't "show more" to page down

I'm using an Android phone, Android 8.1.0.

Facebook pages besides my home and profile pages in desktop mode allow me to click on "Show more" to page down on a page I'm visiting, but it remains on the first page or goes to the first page.

I can't get past the first page unless I switch off desktop mode. Then it doesn't allow anything but "like" as an interaction with a post.

This might be hardware specific since I just switched back to an older phone from an Android also version 8.1.0. This is a Motorola E5 (XT1920DL) software variant tracfone, kernel (gcc version 4.8) The phone without the issue is an LG L423DL software version L423DL10p.

I don't expect an answer since it's so specific to this odd case. I want you to be aware so testers can poke around.

Thank you very much for your help and hard work. I appreciate you.

Whenever I try to play a GDrive video in desktop mode, the video player doesn't show more control options as they show in desktop or in other browsers if desktop mode is enabled. I'm sending screenshot of a GDrive video in Firefox desktop mode and Opera desktop mode to help you understand the problem better. You will see that opera desktop mode has more video player options as if it's true desktop mode but same isn't the case with firefox as it doesn't show options to control speed of video or change resolution.

I got updated to the new Firefox for Android on my 10" tablet, and it seems the old tab bar I had in the "tablet experience" variant of the old interface is gone. And it seems there's no way to get it back? The help page on tab management makes no mention of it, only talking about the phone interface "tab tray". Is there really no way to get the traditional tab bar on a tablet with the new Firefox for Android?

Hi.

Maybe I havent yet got used to the new tabs, and with time it will be fine, but currently my experience is rather annoying. Yeah, sorry, it sounds silly to use "annoying" as an argument, ...but:

# Ideological issues:

  • Why would you completely change from conventional UI at all, without even any pros in the new solution!? E.g., the only reason why most text editing tools share the same interface over decades is the fact that "most text editing tools share this interface". Thus it is apriory intuitive to use. Some people may use something like Vim, ...but then thay install Vim. And you wount appreciate to get your favorite Notepad turning into something like Vim (you will be simply annoyed due to broken ituition (lets ignore here the pros of Vim)).
  • If I remember correctly, in previous versions tabs were hidden (unless you scroll upwards), so most of the time thay didn't block the view ...so what is the reason/purpose of moving them away from the top pannel to begin with? ...here I must mention that I use it on tablet (and I dont have a smartphone to check it out there), and I can believe that it is easier to navigate in the new vertical layout compared to the horisontal one (if people prefer to hold the phone in vertical orientation; I dont know, seriously). But still, why wouldnt you just accomplishe old interface with that small square button to open the new tabs interface, rather than replacing it completely?
  • What is the point of Collections? ...they are Bookmarks?

# Real issue:

  • When I open tabs being on the, e.g., second page counting from the end(or top in that vertical layout), and I scroll upward to find the next tab (I have to scroll since the topmost visible tab in that layout is the current tab) the whole widget (the box with the list of tabs) gets collapsed by half (so that the top of the widget is at the middle of the screen). It seems like another silly complain, but when you need to switch between a few latest tabs often, you'll be ready to smash you device with the wall. Note: maybe you need to open many tabs to reproduce it.

I love Firefox, and Im not going to switch from it in any case. I just hope to help you in this strange way (...also it is not the most efficient one).

Best Regards, Ivan

When i watch a video from YouTube in fullscreen mode, landscape orientation, the video itself Is zoomed in.

My device Is a moto G8 power, with an aspect ratio of 19:9, the video Is locken on the width and not on the height.

The same video on Chrome Is displayed correctly, with black bars on the side.

Thank you very much for any support.
