I have no idea what is happening... But after restarting, clearing my cache, making sure I have data and it is working for other apps... Still no results.

No matter what, whether I try to type in a URL, click on a link in the google app, or refresh a page I already have open, the app doesn't even attempt to load a page or throw up an error. Just a blank background, no loading bar, no error messages, and no redirects...

Hey, so, there is an issue I've been facing. There's a site I've visited a few times on mobile and stopped using a bit ago, but the thing is no matter what I do, it keeps popping up as an autocomplete when I'm typing in the search bar. This only happens on the mobile version of Firefox, it doesn't pop up on the desktop version even though they are synced together, and no matter what I Google, it keeps showing me the instructions to delete autofill entries on the desktop browser. Literally nothing comes up for the android version, or any mobile version at all. Please help, this is exceptionally frustrating.

Just like many people here and in the Play Store reviews, the Firefox app stopped working for me since about a week. When I type something in the search bar or when I open a link from an external app, the page does not load and stays blank. Sending links from another device also does not work.

Does anyone know if developpers are aware of the issue ? I could not find an entry on bugzilla.

About firefox screenshot below. My phone is running on Android 12.

Copy of a reply I posted in someone's question about the same issue:

Same problem for me.

I first had this issue with 114.

After updating to 114.1.1, the issue was fixed for a few hours but came back.

Updating 114.2.0 didn't change anything...

Android Firefox v114.1.0 (Build #2015955411), 4bddc25255+ Samsung Galaxy S9+ Android v10

Hello,

Firefox was upgraded on my Android phone to the version above yesterday, and all existing tabs or any new websites are now blank (see second image attached). No page will load, no open tabs have any content / cant reload them etc. Clearing cache for the app, hasnt worked either.

Just hoping there is a fix rather than blowing everything away and then finding out there is still an issue.

I originally was able to create the home page shortcut to Piped with Chrome, but the shortcut launched Chrome, even though Firefox is my default browser?

Piped [https://piped.kavin.rocks/https://pip.../|Piped]

So I deleted the shortcut. Now, Chrome no longer even offers me the option to "Add to Home Screen" from the Piped page, but it still does for other sites. Within Chrome, It now offers me the option to open the page in Firefox, even if I make Chrome the default browser.

How can I get a shortcut to Piped on my home page that will open in Firefox?

Sorry if this has already been addressed, the nature of the issue makes it very hard to search.

Firefox web access on my phone has been not working whatsoever for a few days now. The app opens, but no webpages load, including pages that were previously open in other tabs before the issue started. Instead of anything, there is just an empty grey screen with the bar at the top like usual. This also happens if I open any web URL in another app, like Discord or Gmail, and it tries to use my default browser (which is Firefox) to access it. Just straight greyness, no loading bar or anything. The issue isn't present in the default Samsung web browser, but honestly, I can't stand using anything other than Firefox, so even looking up help has had to wait until I could use my computer.

I've tried restarting my phone to no avail. I would like to try uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, but as far as I can tell there is no raw "copy a folder" way to back up my data for whatever reason, and when I tried backing up my data by creating a Firefox account for the first time and using sync... well, to do that, it tries to open a series of webpages. Which it can't do. So that was a dead end. And I would really like to avoid losing my tabs, bookmarks, and history if at all possible.

If I don't get an answer that works for me, I think I am going to enable developer access in my phone files and hook it up to my computer to try and force-backup my data, then uninstall and reinstall the app and see if that helps. Honestly, though, I'm really curious why this has happened and how I can prevent it in the future. Having my web browser suddenly just cease to function has been INCREDIBLY annoying.

Thank you for your time!
