Add the Play background option to videos and audio, pre-installed in settings, as it is in the Brave browser. The current Background Video Playback add-on does not fully play all video and audio background playback features, it does not fully work. I have submitted an option request in Bugzilla: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1827371

On Firefox Beta for Android, 113.0b9 (Build #2015947331).

I run 30-40 tabs. Sometimes when I switch to a tab it is no longer on the page I left it at. It is one page back in the tabs history. When I first switch to the tab the URL is briefly correct, and it's as of the Back button was hit. Forward is not an available option.

It does not consistently happen, or I would have better repro steps. Maybe it has to do with the tab being loaded out of memory?

This has been going on for a while now, a few months at least. I figured it would be fixed with subsequent updates but not yet, I have also had no luck searching for anyone else experiencing this bug.

Closed tabs do not stay closed. If I close one or more tabs then close the app, closed tabs will be opened again when I open the app. Even clearing them from history doesn't stop Firefox from reopening closed tabs. This has been an issue since the update on late April - early May 2023. If I navigate to a new site then close the tab, the old site will be reopened on start up.

Hello,

My name is Nyayesh Abdollahi and I have a suggestion for Firefox; I've earlier been unable to access an account I created because the e-mail connected to it had been deleten.

This seems to me a proper weakness in Firefox and perhaps should be ameliorated...?

I just wanted to let you know this because I do think it's the best browser around.

If the problem has already been adressed, my apologies.

Kind regards, Nyayesh Abdollahi

Scrolling up requires two downward swipes

I'm having an issue with Firefox on Android. On certain websites (e.g., Yahoo News, Calscape.org, Google search results--with Goggle Search Fixer add-on enabled), I can scroll down the page without issue, but scrolling slowly back up toward the top of the page with downward drags of my finger is only responsive half of the time. That is, I can only scroll back up with every-other downward swipe/drag of my finger. This odd behavior does not happen with other mobile browsers (I'm on Android 13 and using a Galaxy A53 5G). Any suggestions?

As the title says, is it possible for reader view to follow the system's light/dark mode?

Currently, I can manually choose white on black, sepia, or black on white. That's great, though I'd prefer if the black/white or white/black would switch according to whether the system is in light or dark mode.

Apart from that, thanks for Firefox, I love it!

Just updated to latest version of Firefox for Android (ver 113). When I try to watch a YouTube video in full screen, the app suddenly closes, as if I pressed the home button (note: I say "close" rather than "crash" because when I reopen it, all the pages are still loaded). This doesn't happen every time, but it is annoying. Is there any way to fix this?

I've been reusing android firefox again lately and I noticed I would have a bunch of tabs at a time. Then I realized that it was because whenever I would click a shortcut from the search screen it would open the page in a new tab instead of staying on the current tab. Is there a way to change this?

I've been getting declined transactions from Mozilla due to my old debit card being outdated. Most likely something from the play store or from a roblox account from my son, but I just can't tell what is is. No info pertaining to what it was trying to charge. It's not going through and I have not received any emails regarding it, so no lost $ but it's just annoying that there is no way to find out what it is trying to charge. I don't believe I've ever input my card info into my Firefox account for anything, and it doesn't appear to have that option. I've never signed up for the VPN. But even if it was a mistake or signed up through the play store I don't show any subscriptions or purchases for a service. So what the heck is it? There is no way to find out that I've seen! My bank can't tell, I can't tell and so far Mozilla can't tell you how to tell. Usually purchases from roblox comes up as that. Not Mozilla. And this just started happening the last few weeks.

Whenever I start Firefox Android and go to a YouTube video. Autoplay is enabled by default. I always have to hit the disable autoplay to turn it off. Autoplay set to block audio and video by default in the site permissions. I tried installing the "YouTube high definition" addon which is supposed to allow you to pause autoplay but that doesn't work either. This occurs on both my phone and tablet.

Any suggestions?

Hi, I was updated Firefox in my Android phone. Now, in websites with several saved logins (for example more than 6 account) when I tap on one of the accounts to fill username and password, it does not fill fields. In the previous versions I had not such problem.
