Firefox for Android doesn't handle captures very well it displays the captcha but it's so zoomed in, and it doesn't let you scroll left or right, that you can't see the submit button.

I tried reducing the zoom to 115 but didn't make much of a difference.

Firefox Android 113 switches off Desktop Notifications for web version of YouTube

Hello, I believe that my Firefox android browser updated to version 113 on May 19, 2023. Up until that point, I had no issues with getting notifications sent to my device from the web version of YouTube accessed through Firefox. I could refresh the page and leave the Firefox app and still receive notifications. Ever since the update, every time the YouTube page is reloaded (which also happens when you leave the app) the Desktop Notifications toggle in the YouTube desktop mode settings switches to off. I can switch this toggle back on, the page is refreshed, and this toggle (and only this toggle) automatically switches to off. This happens every time and I am no longer receiving notificationsto my device. The YouTube app for Android is not involved in this, as I use Firefox to access the web version YouTube as an alternative. Please provide information that can help resolve this issue and/or please make a note of this issue so it can be resolved in the future. Thank you so much.

Firefox is failing to display text properly on pages. Paragraphs are getting whited out at seemingly random. If I zoom or highlight the missing part I can usually get it to show up.

I'm using the android mobile version.

I've tried: Clearing the cache Uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox Deleting all add ons Restarting my device Changing font display sizes in Firefox and on my device

It's only Firefox, pages display properly when I try using a different browser. This has been an ongoing problem but its suddenly effecting huge chunks of text on all websites where previously it would only block a word or two on some websites.

(It was even effecting text while trying to type this ticket which is super annoying. )

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

Hi community,

I have a Pixel 8 Pro and not sure if this has been a recent issue since the December update when I click on a phone number or dial icon I expect to end up on Google dialer but for some reason it just loads for a sec and nothing happens. This works fine on other browsers like Chrome and Vivaldi, is there a setting to tweak otherwise I had copy the number or use another browser.

So I got directed here after leaving an unfavourable review due to an ongoing issue that google had no answers for. The screenshot should show the problem. I don't not know what causes it, only that it feels random when it breaks. Cashe/data clearing doesn't help, only a full reinstall seems to fix it, but this gets annoying pretty quick. The issue is search boxes on websites become black, and the text looks weird. The only add-on I use is UBlock, and when I left the review, the app broke after just an hour after being reinstalled, before I even installed UBlock.

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S20Ultra if that helps, though I'm due for an update, and haven't had the time to sort it.

Firefox Android place website shortcut on home screen, not "Install" web app?

I want to add a shortcut to my Android device's home screen for a specific location within a popular website (github). However Firefox doesn't allow me to do that, as the option to "Add to Home screen" changes to "Install" (i.e. prompting to install it as a web-app).

While the "Install" option also places a shortcut on the home screen, it doesn't allow for a specific URL, rather it just leads to the github login screen instead (just as it would with an "app" you wish to use). I don't want that, I want a shortcut to a specific page within github.

Is there any workaround for this? Can this behavior of "Installing" web-apps be disabled somehow in about:config, so that all websites can just be added as regular shortcuts?

I'm using FF Nightly for Android, btw.

Thanks in advance!

I tested this in another browser called Google Chrome, and the issue is not present there.

I can't get any sites to load in my Firefox app since the update to 114.2. I have cleared my cache, forced a stop, and done everything else that's ever worked in the past short of uninstalling and reinstalling. It looks like 114.2 was supposed to fix this issue in older versions, but I'm still having issues.

Hello,

I have a new cell phone and I installed both Firefox and Firefox Focus apps on the phone. I only use the regular Firefox app. Whenever I google search a business, it gives me the address and phone as normal. However, when I push the "call" option on the browser, it does not transfer to the phone app for me to call. I can't dial the number directly from the website.

I can do it this on Chrome but not Firefox.

Can someone give me the solution?

TIA

Hi, I'm trying to play a 360 video I think it uses html5 and webgl. In the desktop version it works perfectly, with the mouse I direct the camera and I have image and sound.

However in the android version I only have sound, the image stays black. I connected the phone with remote debug and this is what I got:

Debug file Mozilla5 Android 13 Mobile rv109 Gecko Firefox114

To play it, I go to the website https://omegaodin.itch.io/00000 I click on "run game" and again on the little play button. Playback starts, there is audio but no picture.

In others mobile browsers as Samsung browser or Chrome, it's working.

I am very novice, but I would like to know the cause and if there is a technical solution that the developer can apply.

Thank you very much for your help.
