When I want to watch a video on fullscreen on my Samsung tablet, Firefox minimalizes throws me to my homescreen. After I go back to Firefox, the video is choppy and has a low fps. I fix it by forward and rewind the video by clicking on the side of the screen. Very annoying. Browser is up to date, please help

hey community,

i am pretty desperate at this point, so i thought, i'd just ask you:

a while ago i had a breach of some of my old passwords. i was able to redo all my passwords into new and strong passwords before someone did shenanigans with my accounts, but the password sync of my firefox app on android still has the old passwords.

i tried disconnecting and reconnecting the sync, i tried deleting the cache and app data, still everytime i get the same result. i can't even log into ky university's default account anymore.

i desperately need your help. what am i doing wrong, what am i missing?

greetings!

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.

Video playback initially works, until suddenly it doesn't; no new videos will work, and videos that previously played in the same browsing session will stop working. Easy to reproduce on Reddit by browsing any video-heavy subreddit. Leaving a broken video in a tab seems to infect the rest of the browser across websites; if a broken video from site A is open in another tab, videos on site B won't play.

Sometimes quitting and restarting Firefox is enough to temporarily get video playback working again; sometimes I have to manually clear the browser cache; at least once I've had to reboot my phone.

I last updated Firefox on Feb 5, and had Ublock, Privacy Badger, and Search by Image we add-ons. Tonight, just randomly, I noticed that typed text wasn't appearing in the text box (although the suggestions showed up in the keyboard) at all on every webpage and site.

Uninstalling and reinstalling (along with the add-ons) did the trick. I am really curious what the root cause was. Hopefully nothing sinister.

I'm on a TCL 30XE 5G running Android 12.

Hi,

I am a frequent user of Firefox on multiple platforms, including Android 14, where I frequently use DeX.

However, I am many times forced to use Chrome or Samsung Internet on DeX to get a professional computer desktop experience.

Firefox does not recognize different mouse button clicks and neither does it view websites with high resolution, not even after selecting "Desktop mode", but instead shows a zoomed-in phone view. (I gave tried selecting various zoom levels in settings.) There may be other shortcomings as well.

Perhaps some of the issues can be avoided by changing some settings? However, please address the issue of providing a full desktop experience in DeX. Thanks for a great browser in most other respects on multiple platforms.

I use Firefox with Video Background Play Fix. It worked properly on my old phone, but doesn't work on my current phone. Playing unexpectedly stops sometimes, usually when I launch another app, but sometimes in my pocket.

I tried to add to about:config (in firefox nigtly) browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory = false . There is no such option in current version. I tried to add manually, but it didn't help.

DEVS NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR IGNORANCE AND LACK OF CARING. On mobile app. Videos are choppy even after refreshing, clearing cache and data serve no fix.

Swiping up on video doesn't enter full screen mode.

These are known issues for over 4 years. Questions

1.) Why haven't devs fixes these issue. 2.) Why do devs rely on non-employees to mitigate issues. Instead of fixing issues themselves directly. 3.) No other browsing site has these issues, only FIREFOX. The issues are clearly from poor app design and bad coding, so why do devs not fix it eventhough 1000s of people have these issues? 4.) Despite all the negative reviews, devs turn a blind eye and don't fix any issues.
