I wanted to download ppsspp, but when I tried to download it, it brought up a blank download, then it failed after 5 minutes. This happens everytime and I tried another browser and it worked there, so this is a Firefox issue. Here's a screenshot.

Specs: Android 10

Huawei Y8P

Firefox 81, updated to 82, still persists.

The audio streaming on npr.org will "reset" when I leave and return to the tab in Firefox on my phone. By this, I mean it will restart to the stream from where it was when I first clicked the play button. So, if I started listening to the stream, and then encountered the big after 5 minutes, it would play what it did 5 minutes ago.

This also happens when I unlock my phone during the screen and npr.org is the active window.

Sometimes, closing and reopening the tab and clicking the play button again will still restart the stream at the previous start point. Usually, closing and reopening the browser will fix it.

I've also submitted this bug to nor.org's technical support, in case it's on their end. But I don't remember this happening with the Firefox browser I was using before Daylight.

The browser is Firefox Daylight: 81.1.4 (Build #2015768385) AC: 57.0.7, 68343a885 GV: 81.0.1-20200930150533 AS: 61.0.13

The phone model is a Moto G5 Plus Operating system is Android 8.1.0

Looking for a way to prevent a non scrollable screen from jumping about. Use to be the tab bar was fixed and the screen was therefore fixed if only 1 panel. Not so now. I play The NYT Spelling Bee and everytime I type a letter the screen jumps around.

I want to return to when a screen is self contained, not meant to scroll, that it stays fixed in place

A fixed tab bar might return it to its former self. Any help?

I open a window, maybe 2 or 3 tabs. I browse. When I check, I have 2 windows opened, one with my tabs and another one which doesn't seems to have anything opened in. I close the weird one. I immediately check and it's opened again. I entirely close Firefox, all windows. When I open it again, I noticed the presence of the ghost window. My phone is a Google Pixel 5 - Android 11. Any idea?

Hi, use to download videos and pictures with firefox v68 and use my gallery to preview them(since i can play videos and open pictures without sound so music don't stop playing), with the latest update everything works fine except that my stock gallery app don't see any of these downloaded files anymore. Now have to use a 3rd party file browser app to open the files to view them using the gallery app and still not automatically added to gallery(meaning i have to open individual files instead of viewing them all at once). Any solutions or plug ins i can use to make it work more like v68.

I have an HP 1912nm internet monitor which is no longer made. A very early version of Firefox was pre-installed on it and many websites (such as Gmail) cannot be opened with it. There is no access I have to the OS (some form of Linux, I think? ) to do the usual download and install. It does have some USB ports which may be of help to connect to another device. Is anybody out there familiar with the 1912nm to suggest how to upgrade to a newer Firefox? If so, please reply!

Thanks! Dan

Spotify Web is not working in Firefox Beta for Android. Message displays that ""Playback disabled"" because of unsupported browser. I am not opening website in incognito mode. I also turned Enhanced Tracking Protection off. But still message is showing and content is unplayable.

Please bring DRM or Google Widewine support in Firefox as these sites block other browsers.

P.S: Works completely fine in Chrome Android.
