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...

This is driving me insane. On mobile data (3,4,5g) Firefox will not open any websites, it just sits with a white page until eventually I get "connection reset". Every other browser on the device works fine though, and Firefox can access sites when on WiFi.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the main app *and* installed focus,beta and nightly versions,all have the same problems. Permissions on mobile data are allowed.

I cannot even get a sensible log or network trace out of the browser as there are no Dev tools.

It sometimes feels like Mozilla are trying their absolute hardest to lose users, I even had had the old "browser uses 12gb of memory for two tabs" problem on desktop the other week.

After selecting Mozilla as my default browser, I tried to perform a search but the only page that loads is the page that wants you to download Mozilla on desktop and android, which I already have. Each time I've tried to do a search with Firefox this is the page that appears, no search results of any kind, but when I switch my search to duckduckgo and perform the search I get results. Can someone please help me understand why I can't perform a search using firefox?? Thank you in advance for your help!

Firefox doesn't play Youtube videos. When opening Youtube website, the loading progress bar stops at around 80% and the video keeps showing the loading circle when pressing 'play' button.

Seems like only the tabs that have been opened for a while are affected. When opening the same video in the new tab, the issue is gone.

When the app is force stopped and started again, the issue disappears and then appears again after some time.

Installed add-ons: uBlock Origin Privacy Badger Video Background Play Fix

The issue persists when all add-ons are disabled. Can be reproduced when using a mobile network without a VPN connection.

I haven't tried to reproduce the issue with all the add-ons initially disabled.

I've found similar issues, that are however not limited to Youtube: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1411513 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1419131 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1374967

This issue is focused on Youtube, so that hopefully it will be easier to debug.

Thank you for developing and contributing to Firefox for Android. It's a modern and competitive mobile browser. I appreciate your effort!

I noticed that on a regular basis, Firefox Android slows down dramatically after 1 or 2 hours of browsing. The only fix of the problem is to force stop the browser and launch it again. This happens consistently as well after disabling extentions. Firefox is updated to the latest version, 110.

Whilest using the Android Firefox app, suddenly all Videos except normal GIFs stopped playing and are instead eternally loading or showing a blank screen. This is the case for Youtube, Vimeo, Imgur and all other Platforms I found so far. By using the beta version of the app in the "about:config" menu I changed the setting "media.mediasource.vp9.enabled" to "true" which fixed it for Youtube, but other Videos on other sites are still not working. I also tried disabling all addons and doing a complete clean reinstall of the app, but this too had no effect.

Any ideas on how to fix are appreciated :) Thanks in advance

Firefox Beta for Android frequently loads webpages as a blank black or grey page. Reloading the tab does nothing - only closing it and reopening it allows the page to load as expected.

I'm a big fan of Firefox and have been using it as my main browser for years, but this issue happens so often that I'm considering moving over to Samsung Internet when on mobile.

P.S. I know it isn't an addon issue as this still happens when all extensions are disabled.

I'm using a Galaxy 21FE on Android 13. Tracking protection is set to default. HTTPS only mode is enabled.

Version: FF Android 101.2.0 (plus other version stuff I can provide if needed), Android 12 Hi there,

I wanted to report an issue I've been experiencing on a popular news site, which seems to have been ongoing for several months now. I'm not sure if anyone else has been having this problem or if it's just me, but I thought it was worth bringing up.

The website in question is . https://alightmotion.net/

My expected behavior when browsing this site is to be able to open links and download files in the background while continuing to browse. However, I've noticed a few issues:

After opening a few tabs, Firefox for Android will hang for almost 30 seconds before doing a deep redraw/repaint of all tabs. It then functions normally until I try to open another background tab from the same website. During the hang, the tab interface continues to redraw, but the pages themselves do not repaint, and no tap events work. When the hang time ends, the pages appear to redraw from scratch, and the context pop-up for the third long-press appears on top of the tab I was looking at. This issue is 100% reproducible for me. Long-press fails when attempting to open the third background tab, but the repaint failure occurs earlier. There seems to be something toxic happening.

Interestingly, when I go back to my Android Home screen after experiencing this issue, there is a deep refresh/repaint, as if the phone has been swapped out or the garbage collector has run.

I have tried clearing all browsing data and using a guest account on my phone, but the issue persists. I don't have any add-ons installed, and neither Chrome nor Firefox Desktop exhibit this behavior. It seems to be specific to Firefox for Android.

Thank you for your help!
