The recent update to Firefox for Android caused the microphone to disappear on the search bar. I checked the settings and I have Show Voice Search toggled on, and I have given permission for Firefox to use the microphone, so I don't know what's going on.

I just opened the app the other day and saw the "What's new" screen. Since then, there is no way to speak a phrase or keywords into the Firefox toolbar.

Has anyone else had that problem?

On a regular basis (few times per week) when trying to enter a comment on a YouTube video, or enter something in the search, the keyboard refuses to appear. Only solution seems to be to restart Firefox completely. Attached image shows a search attempt, where the text cursor is in the field, but no keyboard is appearing. All other sites seem to be fine.

Ever since update 86.1.1 any time I try to enter anything into the address bar it instantly freezes until the menu pops up saying the app is unresponsive until I have to force close it.

I have tried clearing the cache on my phone and for Firefox. I have also uninstalled the app, restarted my phone, then reinstalled. Even with a fresh install the problem still occurs.

Hello,

This problem exists for quite some time now. Sometimes when I download a PDF file, i cannot open it in Adobe acrobat via Firefox download "open". When i tap on "open" Firefox says there is no PDF viewer installed or it cant open the file. Although the viewer is installed and sometimes it works as it should. But some PDF files cant be opened. When I access them through my file manager i can open them without any problem.

Firefox Daylight on an up to date Samsung S10e. But same problem on Xiaomi Mi9 SE or Galaxy Tab S6 lite.

Unable to retain Tabs and 'Desktop site' option isn't retaining when switching to other Tabs or Apps

Firefox reloading the tab issue

To reproduce the issue:

  1. Open Firefox on Android Device.
  2. Open any web-page on a new tab.
  3. Open another Tab and switch to it.
  4. Switch back to the first tab you opened in Step 2.

The web-page opened in Step 2 gets reloaded. Also

  1. Open Firefox on Android Device.
  2. Open any web-page on a new tab.
  3. Switch to any other App (two seconds is enough)
  4. Switch back to Firefox.

The web-page which opened in Step 2 gets reloaded.


Desktop Site Issue On turning-on the 'Desktop site' on a particular Tab and switching to other Tabs or to another App, coming back to the original Tab reloads the page as I mentioned above and turns-off the 'Desktop site' i.e. the Mobile site is shown while the Firefox Options Menu shows the 'Desktop site' still turned-on (via toggle button).


Use-case Logging into my bank website via Firefox, I enter my details and wait for One-Time-Password to arrive as SMS or Email. I now switch from Firefox to the SMS App or Email App to read that One-Time-Password. I switch back to the website on Firefox to enter that One-Time-Password. Now, as soon as I switch back to Firefox, instead of retaining the web-page, it reloads it.

I have to once again go through the procedure of entering my details and switching the app to read the One-Time-Password and then coming back to Firefox to see the web-page is reloading again and this continues on loop because Firefox is unable to retain its web-pages and reloads them as soon as one switches to another Tab or another App.

I have Samsung Galaxy S8 with 1.1GB RAM available all the time and all Battery Optimisations such as not allowing to run Firefox in the background or putting it to sleep is Off.

Fire fox crashes right when I open it. itll open and show it at the hopme page and then immediately crash, I cant access settings for it because of the crash. this is so annoying.. I tried to restart, I tried to force close then go on. I dont get an error code just it saying it crashed...

I tried to download an older version but it always says "failed to download" when It installs completely... I dont want to uninstall it because theres tabs on there I REALLY NEED. If they disappear itll be so upsetting....

I recently updated it to the most recent version and bam. still an issue...how can I fix this? I would be fine if i could just get all my tabs and then reinstall it...but I cant access the profile or anything since its on an android. my phone is amazing the s20 + and it never has any issues EVER. My android is the most recent version since I always update when one is released... Its been like this for 6 days now
