In the Nov 20th and Nov 21st Nightly builds, when I enter a URL in the address bar (either by fully typing it and tapping Enter, or by partially typing it and tapping on one of the autocomplete suggestions), the onscreen keyboard remains in place.

The behaviour in previous builds (and in my view the desired behaviour) was that the onscreen keyboard disappeared in order not to take up screen space that the web page could use.

good morning, on my new smartphone, NOKIA 5.1 PLUS with android 10 security patch October 2020, I have installed Firefox (as previously on all other smartphones). I'm having a problem with downloading documents from sites (any type of PDF-JPG-ZIP .... etc). The downloads start but then do not download anything (you can see the download arrow at the top of the smartphone). Shortly after he goes wrong. I tried to uninstall and reinstall without solving. You can help me? thanks Federico

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Android.

I downloaded a file which I eventually thought is of no use so I thought that it should be deleted. For that, I tried to delete it from the downloads section of the app itself.

But I noticed that no file(s) could be deleted from the application because the long press menu functionality is not working. Furthermore, there is no option to delete multiple downloads at once by selecting them from the list itself.

I have attached a screenshot under this post. I tired to delete the last file by long pressing it. But nothing happened. However if I enable the "External Download Manager", I am able to delete or love the files. But that's obviously increasing steps unnecessarily for a simple task. Please have a look over it and you will understand how there is no response when I tried to use a normal functionality.

Thank You. Kind Regards, VIVEK RAO ANAND

Like the title says but first some context Since the horrible android browser REDESIGN this has happened, never before, im using the latest version and this has happened with every update since that unneeded and unwanted NEW firefox came out Before i could have up to 60 tabs in normal navigation, and the same amount in private, watch videos and animations at least ten tabs of those on each browsing section, the worst that could happen eas all private tabs would close and that was on rare cases Now it (closing)tends to happen 3 days or so, no matter how many on normal navigation or even private but the recurring thing is, opening videos sometimes work, but sometimes the entire browser crashes and with each crash all normal tabs dissapear as well and since you removed so many options including about:blank and other abouts that j knea how to use to recover pages, now is simply an entire session GONE and this has happenes 3 entire times already, the first time it happened i lost months of browsing i had prior to the dreaded update, they were gone and since, i try to use even less the browser, but is the only one with addon support(same addons i installed firefox years ago on android and guess what, none of them were active when the redesign installed the first time or worked and still the crash happened, so if none of your technicians can provide anything other than the boiler plate reaponse of " please update to the most recent version" (which both already are, firefox and android system) "disable addons" which they were the first crash, and reinstall(which i did when i tried to migrate to opera before i realized i can't install a good adblocker on their android version), then DO NOT BOTHER on answering(also, even webm format as well as many others seem to crash it JUST FINE)

Since I installed Firefox on my android phone, I cannot download anything directly from the browser. Anything I try to download returns with the "Download Failed" message, it being a photo, a .zip file, a pdf file or anything in between.

I'm using a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 with Android 7.0. Chrome on the other hand seems to work flawlessly. Firefox is set as the default browser for the device, given all the permissions (storage, camera, microphone, etc) and set to unlimited data usage on both WiFi and mobile data. What is rather peculiar is that my friend's Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x that has firefox installed, downloads any file without error.

Attached are pics showing the issue.

Yesterday I tried downloading a document but it failed to do so. Since then, the 'Download failed' message keeps popping up as a warning in Android. I can't acknowledge it by clicking on the message, but I can swipe it away until it comes back within about 2-30 minutes. The message seems to appear only when Firefox is not running in the foreground. There are no tabs open and this download is not available in the Downloads list. I can't clear the downloads list by the way, which is weird.

I already forced a shutdown of the app and cleared the cache. I haven't tried to clear all data as I don't want to set up the app all over again. I'm sure that works but that's not the solution for this.

Greetings, about week or more ago whenever I would open Firefox two instances would pop up and to fully close Firefox I would have to exit out of both. While it is a rather small inconvenience having to swipe twice to fully quit the app it's slowly becoming more annoying especially when I am going through my open apps and two Firefox browsers get in the way of me finding the app I need or when I am trying to look at something from another open app quickly. Any help would be appreciated. I have a Pixel 3a running Android 11 and Firefox is updated to the most recent version. Also, I do not have any add-ons or pluggins. I have included a screen shot of what it looks like Thank you!

Dear Community,

my small Tech-Startup has an browser based software for craft enterprises based in the fire alert sector.

We advise our customers to use firefox on their androids.

For save using our web based software, the possibility for voice sounds in background or standby mode is nesessary. We use for that No sleep JS in combination with var msg = new SpeechSynthesisUtterance(); var voices = window.speechSynthesis.getVoices();.

We understood the reason stopping abuse on Youtube, sure they need to earn money.

But if we dont get any workarround or help we are forced to leave the plattform firefox and create own app, this is for the users not best solution and us as small start up with 10 customers will cost much money.

Thanks for helping us :)

I made a little webtool for my family to manage our shopping list.

To add new items to the shopping list I use an input field with a datalist.

the datalist is populated from the already used items from a database.

So if you type the first letters in the input field, the browser shows the matching entries, so i can choose easily from the list.

Works like a charm until the new firefox for android V79.0.5.

If I type letters in the input field, nothing happens.

Works flawless in Firefox Desktop Linux (V79.0), older version of Firefox Android, Chrome for Android (V84.0.4147.125).

Is this a bug in the new firefox?

Here to test and to view source code: https://cpunke.de/input_test.php

Thanks for any help in advance.

regards Christian
