When playing a video on YouTube the video is choppy and drops around 2/3 of the frames. This happens on every video that I click on.

I have found that if I double tap to jump back 10 seconds in the video it will no longer drop frames and play smoothly, but if I change the playback resolution it returns to being choppy until jumping in the video again.

I am currently running the latest stable download from the play store, and my phone is a OnePlus 8t.

During video streaming and visiting sites, that use animation while browsing, artefacts appear. Tried reinstalling firefox, clearing data, disabling addons but to no avail.

On video streaming it occurs specifically when playing the video and interacting with the in browser player i.e. just bringing up the seekbar or playback speed.

Device: Redmi Note 13Pro+

Does not occur with chrome and duckduckgo browser.

I have an quite annoying issue when I'm streaming something from SVT Play (www.svtplay.se).

The issue is that when I'm trying to stream anything from this site; I've noticed that the resolution is quite messed up. Insted of having an "normal" resolution ( in wich I have all the basic settings such as full screen,Text ON/ OFF etc), the resolution get a bit odd. In the beginning it's just an small screen ( aprox of an 6x6 cm), but when I'm entering Full Screen; the resolution is all over the place+ that the menu bar is missing.

But also that if I'm entering Full Screen mode; the app is " crashing", or should I say minimizing itself and that I go back to my home screen. But stangly the cast isn't interupting. When I'm trying to enterkng the app,the web- adress is missing( not physicaly but just empty).

What's more strange ( or should I say annoying), is the fact that the cast hasn't any stable resolution. Instead of having an normal resolution( cast), it's rather of an 1,5. But strangly the voice is normal. It's only the picture in wich is out of sync. But strangly if I choose the option of limited bandwith it goes back to normal.

But what's more strange is that I have full connection.

I don't know how this came,but since I'm downloading it from Play store. However since the best way is to download an APK- File( in wich my device is compatibel with). Since I have an Samsung Galaxy Tab S9FE ( SM-X516B- series)

Because however on older version it wasn't any problem. It just appear in newer versions.

However when I'm shutting down the app( have activated the option of clear history when close), it sometimes work fine. But in worse scenario I have to reinstall the app.

Android 14 Battery Drain with all of Firefox Versions

Hello,

I'm facing a severe battery drain issue that occurs with all of the current Firefox versions for Android (Stable, Beta, Nightly). I have noticed that the problem mainly arises when I have played any type of video through the browser, such as a YouTube video or any auto-playing html video through a website. And I don't mean that the battery drain occurs WHILE I have the browser open, I mean in the background, after I have exited Firefox. I have also installed GSAM battery monitor with the necessary ADB battery stats permission given, and it seems that the "Video On" wakelock is always on with Firefox. It's like that the thread that plays the video has not stopped, even if I have force closed Firefox, and killed the video tab. For example, I'm attaching two screenshots from the battery monitor, where I have previously opened Firefox and played a video for like 15 seconds (see the "Audion On"), then immediately closed all the tabs and force closed the application. As you can see, the "Video On" has not stopped, like the "Audio On" wakelock, and continues to count (35 minutes). This may go on forever, such as if I leave the phone at night, I'll wake up the next day with Firefox video wakelock displaying something like 15 hours of playback (something that of course, is not true). The only way to stop the drain, is to restart the phone and not open Firefox.

Though, the issue may not even be related with video playback. I have read in the forums (like here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1432706) that other people are facing this issue as well, and worked around it by not using Firefox as the default browser. I have not tried it but, even if it works, this is not at all convenient. Other posts on reddit that verify the same issue I am having: https://www.reddit.com/r/pixel_phones/comments/18xh7w3/why_is_firefox_using_all_this_battery_i_havent/ https://www.reddit.com/r/zenfone/comments/18zlow0/since_android_14_video_seems_to_be_the_top/ https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/174d13d/firefox_excessive_battery_usage_on_android/

I do not wish to switch to chromium based browsers. Please take a look at the issue and let me know. Thanks a lot.

Hello world! (Sorry; had to.)

I just started using Firefox for Android, as a workaround to the problems I'm having with playing my YouTube playlists.

But, I'm having several problems in Firefox for Android.

1. Playlists (the actual lists of videos) cover the video that's currently playing. My workaround to this is to play in full screen mode, but that brings up problem

2. Full screen videos automatically switch to landscape orientation, despite system settings, with no apparent way to switch back to portrait orientation without also exiting full screen mode. I've tried rotating my phone with auto rotate on/off; neither setting has any affect on the orientation.

What's extremely frustrating about this is that any workaround is actually a workaround to a workaround to a workaround; it's workaroundception.

What I really really want is to be able to simply play my playlist/listen to it without having to jump through hoops and without having to burn through data like a bonfire burns through sticks.

IMO, the best solution would be to download the entire playlist:

https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-Hu9zPsGgiUKHoc2GeRo6ydKQMIQy8Pt&si=LzYVEe1sd8T1knZF

...in one go, and stick it on an mp3 player like it's 2009. So far, the only YouTube to mp3 sites I've found only download individual videos; not whole playlists. (And that's not really a Mozilla issue anyway; the Mozilla issues are the unwanted rotation and the video stack covering up the currently playing video.)

Hi! I been using youtube through firefox on my phone for awhile now. Mostly since it allows me to play the video when the screen is off.

I have now swapped phone to a HTC U23 Pro. After the change everytime that i look at a video now it stutters a lot. No matter the network connection.

On my old Samsung A71 it still works fine.

It works fine in the youtube app or through grayjay.

Have removed every add on i have and resinstalled firefox but the issue is the same.

Any tips on what i can do to fix it?
