I went to log into Firefox, it's said i needed a code and it texted one to me right away. I put the code in and clicked next or whatever it was and it said INVALID code. I hand typed it in again, still coming back as invalid. Why??! I'm pissed off but who cares, right?

Downloading large file over WiFi often fails in Firefox for Android

Hi! Have been using Firefox for Android for years. Cannot solve the following issue: trying to download a large file over (slow?) WiFi displays no signs of a download in progress (except for WiFi activity indicator in the top panel) and nothing happens (no files in the download folder, no records in the Firefox downloads list). If I retry it sometimes works. If I start another browser (Samsung Internet) the download works fine. The device is Samsung Note 8 with the latest updates installed (Android 9). The problem does not reproduce over mobile data connection (4G internet mostly, faster than the WiFi connection I use). Firefox is 92.1.1 but I have seen the issue with all previous versions in the last couple of years.

Sample scenario to reproduce: 1. open https://echo.msk.ru/programs/observation/2909078-echo/ 2. tap and hold the download tab above the video 3. a popup windows appears with the https://cdn.echo.msk.ru/snd/2021-09-25-observation-1210-3532210.mp3 title, select "Download link" (is there any other way in Firefox to download the link?) 4. the popup window disappears and nothing seems to be going on... If I go to "3 dots" menu > Downloads the file is not listed there. 5. Sometimes the download does succeed. In this case I see a notification from the Download manager in the top panel which reads 2021-09-25-observation-1210-3532210(3).mp3 was downloaded where the '(3)' suggests the previous 2 attempts to download the file did try to create the file on the device! The file is about 63 MB.

Thanks, Dmitry

Hi. I've tried using the "Add to Homescreen" button on Android 11, Realme 7 Pro but it bugged out


I've already used it in the past and it worked fine, but now I tried on this page, it showed me "Add" or "Drag manually", so I clicked "add" aaaand nothing happened.

Then when I tried again it claims that the shortcut exists already therefore it can't recreate it.

It's nowhere to be found on any of my home pages.

By the way, I tested on another few sites. If I drag manually it'll work fine, but pressing "Add" will do nothing and make the same problem.

Help would be appreciated, thanks!

Po zalogowaniu się do google zjawia się komunikat: coś poszło nie tak spróbuj ponownie. Instalowałem ponownie Firefox z Google Play, i tak nie działa. Na PC takiego problemu nie ma, w innych przeglądarkach też.
