Just a white screen today.

  • Restarting device didn't help
  • Settings > Apps > Firefox Nightly > Force stop didn't help

Android has an option to clear a cache, but I don't know whether that is safe. Would prefer not to clear data if possible to avoid.

So I have installed Firefox on my Galaxy S20 Plus running Android 12. All permissions are granted and everything is working except the camera. When testing it with https://webcammictest.com/ it ask for permission to use the camera and mic. I of cause allow the use and afterwards it says: The device is not found.

I have tested the mic alone and it is working. The test site is also working in Chrome, Edge, Vivaldi and Brave. So chromium browser do not have any issue with the camera or mic. I have also tried other tests sites with the same result.

I first noticed it when I had to call my doctor which sent a link to a site with camera feedback on. I was surprised and stressed about it wasn't working. Having a doctor waiting and a sick child, while installing Chrome to get it working, was not a fun experience.

Hello. I have been having this problem for a while now. When I enter an address in an existing tab with a :port number at the end of the website address and press the RETURN key the browser does nothing. You can see this issue in the video below. Video will expire on 12th september 2022 https://files.fm/f/xm2mxb829 Only way for me to enter an address with a port is to use an older website link from history or send tab from my desktop through ff sync.

Is there something wrong with my device or is it the browser. Im using firefox for android 102.2.0 on android 10

Ever tried to download a file through firefox and then pause it to resume it after sometime and end up having the rest of the file being downloaded in an instant but upon opening realise the file has been corrupted. I am facing this issue like so frequently it has become like a norm that pausing a downloading file will give a corrupted one for sure. And please note that other browsers don't reproduce the issue infact the links are pause supported in all aspects

I like to collect my tabs and delete my all tabs. Collection feature in Firefox let me collect tabs of my name choice, I really like this feature a lot but this feature has a bug

  • Suppose I made collection of 3-4 number of tabs as list 1.
  • Then i delete all the tabs
  • Now when I go to my collection list 1 and select the open tab option from list, the tab comes back but again when I select open tab second time it also bring back all the tabs which was not even in the collection, and it keeps on bringing all the tabs you ever made irrespective of the collection list, though they not add to my collection list but when I open tabs from collection list it brings all the tabs which was deleted and they (tabs) even come back after clearing the browsing history also.

Please fix this problem, the solution which i recommend is

1. Collection of tabs should be separate form other browsing activity it should be like a copy which I can curate accordingly. 2. Collection list should not delete even after clearing the browsing history only by manually delete the collection list does so. 3. Give is the option of select all option for selecting tabs its very hard to select tabs one by one and then group them into my collection

Please fix this problem it's very annoying i have used collection feature in safari try to take hints from them.

My phone is Nokia X100 with android 11. CPU is 480 5G UFS 2.1 storage Ram is 6gb I already did some tweaks in about:config but it is still slow to load webpages especially going from one site to another site. Any flags recommended? I know there is the option to reduce animations but they split into many animations flags I just don't know which are supposed to be able to speed up the speed by disabling them. Please share your view
