Dear Mozilla support,

For a while I have the problem that when I want to watch a video fullscreen on a website e.g. youtube, inline video etc. Firefox stops and completely closes. This is only the first time when I play the video. When I re-open the browser I can continue watching the video fullscreen without any problem. I don't receive any error messages.

Attached the specs of my phone and Firefox browser.

Kind regards, Rick

Hello,

I am getting a frequent freeze in the Android app and then shortly after a crash. Info: - happens on FF, FF Beta, and FF Nightly,and reinstall/phone reset didn't fix. - Samsung Galaxy SM-G965U running Android 10. - every error starts with java.lang.OutofMemoryError. - it never happens just on startup, just on auto fill, or some of the similar crash reports I've seen around here. - it does appear to be site-specific, but sometimes the site works and sometimes it does not: if I close the last tab after a crash, it will usually work for awhile. - Sync and disabling Add-ons doesnt fix it, although perhaps its worse with uBlock Origin enabled (not conclusively)

Thanks for any suggestions.

I could extract the Firefox apk from my phone and sideload this onto my quest, but I don't understand why Mozilla don't make an apk available for direct download or make Firefox available via the Meta store. The latter I can understand as it's more time an effort, but I'm at a loss regarding the direct apk availability.

Does anyone know why this is only downloadable via Google Play?

Cheers

Android System UI crashes after a download completes in Firefox for Android.

About a week ago my phone (Sony Xperia ZX2 Premium running Android 10) started 'crashing to the lock screen' whenever a download finished in the mobile version of Firefox. If multiple files are downloaded in short succession a popup will appear informing me that the 'System UI keeps stopping', with a prompt to close the app or to get to the app info (see the attached photo - clicking either option sends me back to the lockscreen, with the only difference being that after unlocking the phone the former will have stayed with Firefox in focus, and the latter having opened the Settings app on the System UI entry).

Going to about:crashes shows no recent crashes on Firefox's ends. (Plus, Firefox shows no signs of having been closed [like tabs being reloaded] after unlocking the phone again post-crash). The issue currently only happens when downloading a file through Firefox; downloading a file through Edge, Discord, or the Google Drive app produces no problems.

I have already tried force-stopping and restarting Firefox, restarting the phone, and clearing the download history with no luck. Furthermore, I have also checked for updates for the system, the Google Play Store, and Firefox for Android, however all of them were already up to date.

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

I tried going to the Data folder, but there is only 1 folder there, "export messages", for an app that lets me print out or save existing text messages .

Why won't web pages show in dark mode and are still white. So far the only browser I have seen that will also darken a web page is the standard Samsung browser. Love Firefox on my computer but on a tablet the darkening of web pages from the bright white is crucial. How can this be fixed?

Firefox on Android is great, but you can't move your shortcuts, edit the URL for them or sync them with desktop.

Am I missing something? Since it's easy to do this very basic thing that most other browser's have by default?

I can't find an answer to this, and if it's by design, then why? It makes no sense to not have a basic feature like this in a browser.

Recently updated my galaxy s22 to android 14. Now Firefox does not suggest logins correctly for any sites. It knows that there is a saved login but the suggested option is 'purpled' out and no values are provided. Also when I navigate to settings it does not present the option to view any logins.

Disable viewing all passwords using fingerprint

I like using fingerprint to unlock my mobile and I can manage the risks linked to the weaknesses of the method.

BUT I find very dangerous to be able to access all my passwords using my finger. My finger could be used when I am asleep for example and the person would be able to see and copy all the passwords he wants while I am sleeping. I would even not notice he copied anything when I wake up.

When I want to see a password I am proposed to use PIN AND fingerprint. So unless there is a way to disable unlocking the passwords with the fingerprint, I am forced to disable fingerprint to unlock my mobile which is annoying.

My question is -- How do I disable fingerprint for accessing my passwords without removing fingerprint globally ?

Hi there, I recently downgraded Firefox on my Android (5.1.1), as the new versions of the app became to get heavy.

I have logged in with my Account and am now trying to get the bookmarks synced. I have no Desktop right now to pair. The bookmarks and the Account are only available on my iPad, where FF is logged in and has the bookmarks synced.

Any ideas how I can fix this? Thanks for any help and regards, Dan

Hi, I am using Firefox Beta for Android on my android phone. Its OS is Oreo (Android 8). Since Firefox Beta for Android 118.0b2, There is no audio on any website in Beta & Nightly. Firefox Stable and other browsers work just fine. Videos or online audio players work but there is no sound. I tried deleting cache, resetting the app and uninstalled and reinstalled the Beta and Nighty but the problem persists. I have searched online for help but I couldn't find any similar complaints. The audio on my phone works just fine. There is problem only in Firefox Beta (& Nightly) for Android. I don't have any extensions installed. I need your help. Thank you.
