Hello, in the last few days I have been seeing a weird issue when browsing webpages on Firefox for Android. Horizontal bars, alternately in white, black or grey, obscure small parts of the page, usually disappearing after a short while. This seems to happen particularly often when I'm highlighting text on the webpage.

This hadn't happened before.

Images are added for reference.

In "collections" I saved some important websites which I open regularly. When I open those websites from collections I always get the old page version from the day I saved it in collections. (For example cnn.com)

When I save the same websites in bookmarks, the webpages open to the current version at this present moment.

Are sites saved in collections supposed to open the old website versions like that? It's frustrating because then I need to try to refresh and make sure I'm getting the up to date page version.

I, at one time, could pin a page to the new tabs screen where it would pin an icon that I could click on and immediately access that web page. I want to pin additional pages to that screen but I don't know how. I can't remember what I did to do it. I've attached a snippet of a screenshot circling the pins to give more insight into what I'm referring to.

If there are limitations or requirements, I would appreciate anyone advising of what they are. If you can guide me to the appropriate information or provide the information, any help would be appreciated!

In new 2020 update of firefox for android, I use ublock origin as the only addon.

For most websites, it works as intended. For some, it breaks the page. Which is ok, content blockers may corrupt a page. Naturally I disabled the extension for that specific page.

Refreshed, but page still broken. Fine, if I remove the addon completely, maybe then it will work. Refreshed, still broken. Maybe some piece of code from ublock remains in current session. Close firefox from recent apps. Restart, refresh, no success.

Did I find a solution? Yes: clearing all app data for firefox from Application settings.

After this fresh start, the webpage loads as intended. Just out of curiosity, I installed the addon again and guess what :) back to the beginning.

There is one more thing: instead of disabling ublock on that specific page, if I disable javascript on that page using ublock, at least page becomes readable

I used ublock origin in previous version of firefox and never had this issue of "never being able to disable" that is why I think this is a firefox issue, not a ublock issue.

Dear mozilla please fix this, or anyone from the forum please help me figure this out.

Previous versions of Firefox preview would take me back to the app that caused a link to open in Firefox whenever the Android back button was pressed.

Lately pressing the Android back button from within Firefox preview no longer takes me to the previous app. It now closes the current tab and shows the list of tabs.

I'm using Firefox v79.0.5 on Android 10, and a browser behavior has apparently changed.

Used to be that if I opened a link that was active on a tab, that tab would become current.

Now, when I open a link, it always opens a new tab, so that I have 2 (or more) tabs displaying the same link.

Is there a control/setting I can use to restore the old behavior?

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

Just looking for some help. I'm slowly transferring over to Firefox from Chrome but I have two issues both are with Facebook.

On my laptop if I browse through Facebook every now and again (2-3 minutes) I get a complete white out on the screen which eventually comes back. On my mobile if I look at Facebook through the Firefox browser app the picture quality isn't very good and the videos are very pixilated. So whether I look at Facebook on my Laptop or phone it has to be done via Chrome.

BTW has anyone noticed that if you look at Facebook in Chrome and Firefox you get different content?

My laptop is Windows 10 My phone is Android

Regards Steve
