I love the TTS on Firefox, and it is pleasant to the ears.

I'm amazed by tacotron and wavenet, but those are too slow and far from realtime.

How are you awesome people achieving real time under the hood? Can you share the techniques please?

With this latest Android release whenever I delete the browsing history the Top Site favicons are lost too. This didn't use to happen. Given how titchy the Top Sites text is now this is a real bind. Please can browsing history deletion leave these favicons alone or at least offer a sub-option to choose this behaviour?

Thanks

Ii had a number of bookmarks saved in the previous version of Firefox. These included access to my local surgery to make appointments and order medication. I am now unable to access my previous bookmarks and have to save them into the new versions. Why is this? For your information, I find this new Firefox to be on of the least user friendly programs I have ever used.

I use ldoceonline.com a lot and I noticed that only after updating Firefox whenever I swipe between applications in my android phone (Huwaei mate 20 pro- Android 10) to change my application and come back to Firefox again, for the first 5 to 10 seconds my keyboard starts to changing and refreshing very fast and does not accept typing. After stabilizing I can type. But after changing applications in Android again this happens and it is not the same case with any other browser so there must be something wrong with firefox. So I wanted to ask for help cause I use Firefox alot...

Since the new version came out, sound is broken on youtube. When playing with increased playback speed, voices are harsh and robotic, like if you did a digital to analogue conversion without any smoothing on the waveform. Makes youtube totally unusable for me, and the only reason I haven't switched browsers is chrome has no adblock.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

I have a Galaxy S10, and I've always had an issue where when I view youtube videos in full screen mode, the video is left-right filled to screen but the top and bottom part of the video is cut off (out of the phone screen). Sometimes, depending on the video, the full screen mode is even more broken, since I'll only be able to view one small corner of the video, and everything else (including the play bar and full screen button) is out of the screen.

I was wondering 1) if anyone knew how to fix this issue 2) if this is just a problem on S10 or on other devices too 3) if the devs are aware of this issue and have any thoughts on a fix.

I would like to be able to zoom in/out of the video so I can choose between top-bottom fill and left-right fill.

Thanks!
