I've seen it on multiple sites, so it might be a browser issue. Here is what happens:

-I tap on link A. -Browser opens link B instead.

It is random, like 5% of all Fark.com taps and 10% of all Reddit.com taps. But the website registers the tap to have occurred at a different spot on a page/screen other than the actual spot on my screen where I tap, always on a lower part of the screen. I keep my screen clean, so it can't be that. I have not experienced this with my previous phone, which also used Firefox for Android (installed August 2019, never updated). The version I am using now was installed on my new phone (installed December 2020, never updated). So what is going on? Is it my phone? Is it the browser? Is it these script-heavy websites?

Hi,

I used to be able to display a webpage in reader view and then download a pdf version of the page. I would work really well for saving articles without all the unnecessary menus and sidebars etc. I used it a lot in Firefox on my Samsung tablet.

I now noticed that the option no longer appears in the menu at all. I suspect that this disappeared with the recent big upgrade (I am using version 84). I can "share" a link to the page but that is no good. Quite often pages I can access with a mobile browser are blocked in the desktop version, not really sure why but that's my experience.

Does anyone have any idea whether there is a way to do that now? There doesn't seem to be an add-on as far as I can see that would do that. I really don't understand why they would have deleted this feature.

Any help gratefully received

Using my Lenovo 10" tablet I just couldn't understand why I wasn't able to scroll at all in yandex.com under images when it took me to a second window, whenever I choose (clicked) any image using the desktop mode in landscape orientation, and why the screen would just flash white and take a long time for the images to come in when scrolling through the first search results screen as well? I thus and reluctantly download other browsers just to see if this issue was universal and it is definitely not. The other popular yet unnamed browsers work flawlessly in both regards and this truly stumped me as to why the firefox browser couldn't do the same? Today I decided to download the firefox browser on my Android phone, as believe it or not I only use the phone for outgoing and incoming calls, as my aging eyes just can't see things on these devices, and it Unbelievably worked flawlessly in landscape and stadard orientation as well. I then put my tablet in standard orientation and it Unbelievably worked great. All I then could conclude and I definitely may be wrong here, which I really hope I am, yet it seems firefox on a tablet in the desktop mode in landscape orientation doesn't work like it does on an android phone and I just don't understand why? Because of this unfortunate limitation in this great browser on a tablet I'm now regretfully "forced" to keep and use another browser whenever using yandex.com or any site that could yeild the same issue and if anyone graciously has the solution minus using my tablet in standard orientation I would very greatly appreciate it? Regards, S.D.

Using the lastest Firefox browser on my Samsung S20+, auto screen sizing cuts of text and makes the article unreadable. When I try to manually resize, it only zooms in, not out. Switching to Desktop Site is the only fix I've found. This problem doesn't occur when using the Chrome browser.

I've noticed that when I'm reading e-mails from protonmail (www.protonmail.com)- via their site not the app that the compatibility on many Android based units ( such as modern Samsung Galaxy Tab phones& tablets) is poor. However I can log in,but then many of the basic functions at this service is poor. Such as that the keyboard takes up the whole screen( wich makes it hard to see what I'm writing), but what's most annlying is that the compatibility as an average is poor.

What I've discovered is: - If I open an existing mail the browser itself struggles to open it. I also can't scroll within an existing mail without getting frustrated. But at the same while if I do the same thing at a normal pc ( with win) the service works fine. -Neither of the functions to formate the text- such as Bold,Italics etc. What I call basic functions.

So to sum this up is that Firefox for Android don' t have the same compatibility ( functions ) is the same for pc.
