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.

When visiting this page, https://pluralkit.me/commands/#system-commands, and using "find in page" the find it page prompt just randomly closes. It happens a few ways. A few times I've been halfway through typing my search query, and on the third letter, the prompt & my keyboard disappear. Every other time I hit the "next item" button a few times and on the 1-6th time, the prompt disappears. I can re-open it but it loses my search query, and it's annoying.

I'm using Firefox

98.3.0 (Build #2015870331), b1a12ce69+ AC: 98.0.13, a31f2c481a GV: 98.0.2-20220322144853 AS: 91.0.1

On Android 12 (SP2A.220305.013.A3) on a Pixel 6 Pro. No add-ons. I've tried restarting the Firefox app.

Does not appear to happen on a few other websites I've tried.

Hello,

Quite à few month ago, after update, my new Firefox for Android does not allow me to access to the print option. I cannot find the page nor the tools options using my mobile. When using edge, chrome or other browser, I still do have this option and therefore able to print pdf copies of the resources I do want to archive. Is it possible to know why these printing options are unaccessible on Firefox using Android ?

Regards

When I have typed a few words in the Firefox search bar, I can't find a way to select an individual word to cut, copy or delete it. I have to move the cursor to the word end and backspace. I'm using SwiftKey keyboard on a Samsung s20, Android 12, FireFox 99.2

In textboxes such as this one, I can select individual words. Its only a problem with single line text fields such as the search bar, Google search bar, duckduck , name entries, etc.

Apologies in advance in case this post comes out as a mess!

Finally, Firefox does not require camera access for me to browse the file system to choose a screenshot image to upload at this support forum. So why block image attachment upload until the user grants Firefox access to the device's camera? Not cool!

I am not sure this is the right forum to be asking all of the questions below but .. I am starting here and will be guided by your feedback if only some questions can be answered here.

All my questions pertain to Firefox Nightly on Android. 101.0a1 (Build #2015874793) It is my hope that the Q&A might help other users of Firefox Nightly on Android.

  1. (generic) Where will I find discussion of or documentation (specifications, user manual, usage notes, self-documenting source code, etc.) for the various Firefox settings accessible via about:config ?
  2. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.volume_scale setting?
  3. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.default_volume setting?
  4. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled setting?
  5. (generic) Is it reasonable to expect that a browser be able to determine either the RMS or Peak loudness of the src for a media element and mute (i.e. set ~.volume=0) if that loudness is above some user specified level? For example:
    • Might there be metadata within the file header that describes loudness just as there is metadata that describes duration?
    • Might parsing just the first 3-5 seconds of the file be sufficiently manageable to estimate loudness without grossly impacting page load-time or grossly taxing the CPU?
    • Might the default action be to set ~.volume=0 until such time as the browser has parsed the entire src to determine actual RMS loudness .. and only then restore ~.volume to user-prescribed maximum permitted volume iff RMS loudness is below a user prescribed threshold? (the bigger the file the longer that media is muted before it can be potentially unmuted!)

Thank you, in advance, for any time you spend responding to my questions. I am especially appreciative of links that I can follow to find answers for myself rather than being spoon-fed answers on a specific case by case basis.

I remember sites with related terms not always being grouped up not too long ago. The change isn't bad but would like to know how to disable it. The main issue being ever since this change was implemented, it breaks some functionality. It keeps you from being able to look through the rest of your history until you delete the group. Either it prevents you from continuing to scroll down. Or when you do keep scrolling, it keeps looping the sites already shown.
