Websites are fine, but if I open up the address/search bar firefox instantly begins to lag and there is a serious (5 seconds or so) delay between typing and the text appearing.

I have tried disabling search features (search from history, search bookmarks), I have tried disabling add-ons, and I have tried clearing the app cache

Weirdly enough, this problem persists on Firefox Nightly, which I had never downloaded before just now.

Please help.

Automatically received the latest major firefox update on my Samsung galaxy tab s3. I don't know what Mozilla did to this release but I can't find any functions to do basic browser controls like going back to the previous page, going to the next page, or refreshing a page. I really love firefox but it's kind of unusable without these controls. I'm going to have to use chrome which I'd prefer not to do until this is fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This is not really a question so much as a suggestion for a future release. If there's a better place for this, please let me know and I'll post it there.

I love the new Firefox Mobile with the address bar on the bottom, but it would be better if the address bar pushed the web content up instead of hiding it.

I have an example site that shows what I'm talking about: https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/test/ (Couldn't get my mobile to cooperate for screenshots, so I have nothing but mobile emulation to offer for images.)

It's just a template I mocked up. My intention was to do something minimalist. In the template, there is a background image taking up the entire screen. The header is placed at the very bottom of the page, 10vh high. As the user scrolls up, the rest of the site content is revealed. The header is sticky and locks in place at the top.

It's a nice effect on desktop and mobile emulation. (See attachments.)

Unfortunately, with Firefox mobile's address bar being on the bottom and covering web content, the initial placement of the header is completely hidden from view, leaving the user to wonder what they're looking at. I am aware that the address bar can be configured to be at the top, but the average user is not going to do this.

I think it would be better to have the address bar push the web content out of its way rather than overlaying and hiding what's underneath. If that's possible, I'd love to see it as an enhancement.

I have created some firefox collections but have difficulty getting to the collections screen. On a collections help page it says "In the Collections section on the Home screen" but my android phone does not show a collections section, just icons. What is the problem? I also cannot figure out how to find the version of firefox that is installed, if that may be the issue.

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 ?

Does Firefox on Android actually have profiles? If so, how can I either get Profile Manager to come up every time and ask which one I want to use, or else how can I get a separate launcher to launch different profiles?

I know there is sort of a work around of using e.g. mainline, beta, nightly, but I'd rather stick to mainline...

If there *is* a way to access Profile Manager etc, I think this page needs a mobile section... https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-remove-switch-firefox-profiles

Hi,

With the up-to-date version of Firefox Androind 84.1, Youtube videos(m.youtube.com) won't play in the background (on a tab that isn't on the foreground or in another app) any more. Downgrading to an older Firefox version does allow background playing. Is disabling updates the only option to maintain this function?

I can't download anything through the browser. Images, PDF's, even the extensions recommended by Firefox. Whenever I try to download something I get an indication that Firefox is trying to download it. Then it always fails and tells me to try again. And then it fails again.

I downloaded chrome to be able to download things. That works. But running two separate browsers to get the basic features of one working browser is an annoying fix.
