Hi! Have been using Firefox for Android for years. Cannot solve the following issue: trying to download a large file over (slow?) WiFi displays no signs of a download in progress (except for WiFi activity indicator in the top panel) and nothing happens (no files in the download folder, no records in the Firefox downloads list). If I retry it sometimes works. If I start another browser (Samsung Internet) the download works fine. The device is Samsung Note 8 with the latest updates installed (Android 9). The problem does not reproduce over mobile data connection (4G internet mostly, faster than the WiFi connection I use). Firefox is 92.1.1 but I have seen the issue with all previous versions in the last couple of years.

Sample scenario to reproduce: 1. open https://echo.msk.ru/programs/observation/2909078-echo/ 2. tap and hold the download tab above the video 3. a popup windows appears with the https://cdn.echo.msk.ru/snd/2021-09-25-observation-1210-3532210.mp3 title, select "Download link" (is there any other way in Firefox to download the link?) 4. the popup window disappears and nothing seems to be going on... If I go to "3 dots" menu > Downloads the file is not listed there. 5. Sometimes the download does succeed. In this case I see a notification from the Download manager in the top panel which reads 2021-09-25-observation-1210-3532210(3).mp3 was downloaded where the '(3)' suggests the previous 2 attempts to download the file did try to create the file on the device! The file is about 63 MB.

Thanks, Dmitry

Full screen mode doesn't support 21:9 video on modern 21:9 phones

21:9 ultrawide videos that full-screen correctly on the YouTube app do not take up the whole 21:9 (2400x1080) screen of my Oneplus 9 when viewed via Firefox.

Ultrawide videos on YouTube leave little black bars on every side, while on Vimeo they get pushed into the bottom right with massive black boxes on the top and left.

I'd prefer to use Google's apps as little as possible due to forced ads and lacking privacy, which is why I'm interested in this being fixed. Most YT videos are still 16:9 and they display correctly, but it'd be nice to get the 21:9 that is the new default in smartphones to get working as well.

Android Firefox 92.1.1. A recent update has changed and I think broken scroll-to-hide for the address bar.

I have address bar set to the bottom of the screen. Scrolling down hide the bar as expected.

Until a recent update, *any* scrolling up would restore the bar. However now it will only restore when the up-scroll is in the very last page or so of the whole page.

This means I'd you scroll down a long page, you need to spool and spool back up even to get the address bar back. That seems wrong.

Is this an intentional change? It make auto hide much less friendly if so.

Just a few quedtions whether dode stuff is fixed by now or whether I should stay at the old one.

Persona ( or other type of themes) Support?

New tab buttpn at the top?

Is the it again possible to click on the address bar to then choose the pinned site to open in your current tab. ( Thats is the main problem why I went back because this address bar-> new tab -> open -> tab -> tab list -> close old -> tab -> switch back to the tab you want is just stupid.)

Video Background play fix addon support or any other that allows you to play youtube vid while looking another tab/ app/ lock phone?

Whenever I go to "Save file to device" on a picture, video, etc., there seems to be unnecessary delay, as though it is downloading the already downloaded file all over again. Confirmed by disabling wifi, trying to save an already completed file, and a message "Download failed" appearing.

Well, this is not so good. Wastes my bandwidth, and takes more time than it needs to.

To the point, how do I get the browser to just save the file that is already downloaded and cached, instead of redundantly downloading it again?

Latest update and video play in web pages (youtube for example) on android phone and androidtv.

The videos used to play properly until this latest update.

The problem: 1) on android phone the video picture screen defaults to a cropped version and cannot be enlarged to full screen, there are no controls. 2) On androidtv the video defaults to a small picture in the top left hand corner od the video screen. There are no controls visible to enlarge the picture.

Please fix.
