Force landscape orientation in fullscreen mode

Until recently (sorry, I don't know which version I upgraded from), entering fullscreen mode when playing back video (such as YouTube) would automatically force landscape mode, even with auto-rotation disabled. Now, there seems to be no way for me to enter landscape mode while playing back a video, without enabling auto-rotation (which I otherwise always keep disabled).

I realize that the desired behavior here can be subjective, but at least it would be nice if there is/would be a way of configuring this behavior?

I'm on Android 13 (Oxygen OS 13 on OnePlus Nord 2T), with Firefox version 112.2.0 (release April 24 on the play store).

please i am Begging you let me put the forward/backward buttons on the search bar why do i have to open a separate menu to do this

ability to Choose what gestures do (for example, swiping on the search bar in either direction to navigate history rather than tabs) would also be acceptable, if slightly less convenient (as i suspect something like that would only allow moving forward/back one page at a time, as opposed to simply press-and-holding to pull up all your options to jump to)

i am losing my mind a little bit here i don't understand why it has to be so roundabout

Playing in background no longer works

Until recently (sorry, I don't know which version I upgraded from), it was possible to let media play the background with Firefox for Android. Media would show up on the lock screen and could be played/paused from there when open in the browser. Now, I have found no way of playing media from Firefox without having the window in focus.

I'm wondering if this was an Android change or a Firefox change that broke Android detecting media playing in Firefox, and whether this is/was intended, a known issue, or a bug?

I'm on Android 13 (Oxygen OS 13 on OnePlus Nord 2T), with Firefox version 112.2.0 (release April 24 on the play store).

Hello,

I created an account in Firefox with my old e-mail; nyayesh_abdollahi@fripost.org.

However, I have since deleted that e-mail and also forgotten the login password for that Firefox-account; therefore, I can't login to it albeit it exists.

I'm not sure how this works but I do believe the best way to resolve the matter is through the deletion of the aforementioned account.

Kindly, Nyayesh Abdollahi

Any progress with this?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1384776

I've encountered a problem where the defaults appear to have changed.

The ability to adjust margins would help triage the problem.

Evidentially, about:config isn't supported on Android either.

Thanks in advance.
