I really hope someone can help. I *want* to use Firefox as my mobile (Android) browser b/c I am deeply disturbed by Google/Blink beginning to dominate web architecture. But, I cannot get F/F to render sites even approximately correctly---and definitely not acceptably. One of the sites I read most is CNET's news.com. I am attaching 4 images: the first is Firefox in normal mode; second is Firefox in "Request desktop site mode." ...Both are wrong. Terrible.
The third image is from Privacy Browser, a very basic and lightweight webkit-based browser. This is very good, it is only missing video and 3rd-party content that I have chosen to block. The fourth is from Kiwi Browser, an open-source blink-based browser. This is excellent, and is what I expect from Firefox Android, which is also a full-weight browser. Why is Firefox not rendering properly? Is there something I can do to get proper performance.
Note: I have tried multiple blink-based tools (e.g., Bromite, Brave), and all work ok, as do multiple webkit ones (e.g., FOSS browser, yuzu). But, all Firefox variants (Fennec for F-Droid, Tor, ...) fail.
Is this a known issue? I have tried searching and found nothing :(
Thanks in advance for advice/guidance!
