I have no idea what is happening... But after restarting, clearing my cache, making sure I have data and it is working for other apps... Still no results.

No matter what, whether I try to type in a URL, click on a link in the google app, or refresh a page I already have open, the app doesn't even attempt to load a page or throw up an error. Just a blank background, no loading bar, no error messages, and no redirects...

Just like many people here and in the Play Store reviews, the Firefox app stopped working for me since about a week. When I type something in the search bar or when I open a link from an external app, the page does not load and stays blank. Sending links from another device also does not work.

Does anyone know if developpers are aware of the issue ? I could not find an entry on bugzilla.

About firefox screenshot below. My phone is running on Android 12.

Copy of a reply I posted in someone's question about the same issue:

Same problem for me.

I first had this issue with 114.

After updating to 114.1.1, the issue was fixed for a few hours but came back.

Updating 114.2.0 didn't change anything...

This is driving me insane. On mobile data (3,4,5g) Firefox will not open any websites, it just sits with a white page until eventually I get "connection reset". Every other browser on the device works fine though, and Firefox can access sites when on WiFi.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the main app *and* installed focus,beta and nightly versions,all have the same problems. Permissions on mobile data are allowed.

I cannot even get a sensible log or network trace out of the browser as there are no Dev tools.

It sometimes feels like Mozilla are trying their absolute hardest to lose users, I even had had the old "browser uses 12gb of memory for two tabs" problem on desktop the other week.

Nothing will load in my browser after an Android update to my phone last night. All pages that I was viewing yesterday on different tabs remain gray--no error or other indication of how to fix this. Chrome and Incognito load the same pages without issue and work fine.

I suspect the issue was introduced with the Android update to my phone last night but not sure.

After selecting Mozilla as my default browser, I tried to perform a search but the only page that loads is the page that wants you to download Mozilla on desktop and android, which I already have. Each time I've tried to do a search with Firefox this is the page that appears, no search results of any kind, but when I switch my search to duckduckgo and perform the search I get results. Can someone please help me understand why I can't perform a search using firefox?? Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi All,

I really hope someone more clever than me can help me figure this one out as it is being a real deal breaker. I am a long time FFox user and for the longest time I have just dismissed this behaviour as a network issue or something not related to the browser itself. Every now and again, when typing in a new url, Firefox simply stalls and does not connect. It does not matter what URL it is and if I close that tab and open a new one (or reuse an already opened one). The browser stubbornly is stuck in "loading" mode but in fact it is doing nothing. Sometimes closing the session (by swiping the browser up off the screen)and reopening firefox works, sometimes not so much, however, every time if I open a private window, i can access the typed URL 100% of the time. This finding tells me without any doubt that the problem is with Firefox and I imagine there is a fairly simple explanation and fix as for a top browser that is simply not acceptable. My wanderings on reddit unfortunately did not yield any positive result with people just accepting it as "quirk". My ff is up to date (114.2.0) and is running on a Samsung s21.

Thanks so much for any way out of this madness.,

Websites are not loading, search is not working. The app is not working at all. Tried closing and reopening FF, cleared cache, rebooting phone and few other settings but nothing helped. Tried googling around the problem and most of the users are also facing same issue. It might be fixed by reinstalling the app but I CANNOT do that because my site data is important and I don't see any way to backup site data to my PC. Please help with the issue without losing FF app data.

No websites load anymore. Or rather, it doesn't try to load any websites. Any website or search term that I enter and the content display is just black. Close and reopen doesn't help. It's literally unusable since a week or more back. I might try resetting but I really shouldn't have to, and there is nothing to say this won't happen again.

See attachment, this is what every website looks like for me.

When I tapped on the firefox widget on my phone this morning, it showed "google.com" in the address bar but the page was blank. I checked this on my wife's phone and my tablet and the exact same thing happens. I tried turning off my two add blockers to see if that would make a difference but it did not. I then uninstalled and reinstalled firefox on my phone from the Google Store and logged back in and it still acted the same way. For fun, I then turned on "Desktop site" in the menu and then my normal google.com page opened up. When I turned off 'desktop site', it went back to a blank screen with the "home" icon, the address bar, number of tabs open box and the 3 dots menu bar showing on top, but nothing else. I then opened my computer and works fine on my desktop. So, not sure what is happening but definitely some problem with "google.com" address on firefox (unless I toggle on "desktop site".) I also cleared my cache (which of course, was completely empty when I deleted and then added on the firefox app at the google store). Seems like might be a problem on your end? Especially since seems to happen on all four android devices that I have. I've also attached screenshots of the two pages I get, the first regular, the second with 'desktop site' toggled on.

For some reason, when I open a link on another app, the browser just stays on a blank screen. The loading bar doesn't even appear. I tried to do Open in Firefox, but it does the same thing, and it even makes it so any time I try to go to another tab or try to go to a different website immediately after, it gets stuck on the blank screen as well. I had to force close the app and reopen it to fix it. I don't know if it's a firewall issue or incompatibility.

HELP! My mobile data usage spiked as of June 20th and has continued at unprecedented levels almost every day since. My historic daily usage for the past many years has been around 4 MB and is now 95MB. and busting through my 2GB/month limit. This is ALL due to Firefox! What happened? Something strange happened on June 19th, when my mobile date usage recorded three separate usage figures instead of the single usage figure for all days previously. June 19th showed 2 usage figures and June 30th showed 3.

Just a white screen today.

Android has an option to clear a cache, but I don't know whether that is safe. Would prefer not to clear data if possible to avoid.

I have a blog over at venera.social, and when I view my timeline on my Fold4 using Dex, the page doesn't fully load, cutting off about two-thirds of the way down, which is rather a problem as the navigation buttons are at the bottom of the page. The problem is only when using DeX with an external trackball connected, when using the phone screen as a touch pad or just using Firefox on the phone, the page loads completely.

As with other recent posters on this support forum, I am also experiencing the bug on Firefox for Android 114.2.0 where all pages fail to load, only a blank screen is shown, along with the padlock icon having a red slash.

This started 2 days ago when I updated to Firefox 114.2.0 and also updated to Android 13 patch level June 1, 2023.

I will attach screenshots of the blank page, the Firefox about page, the Play Store app info, and the Settings app info.

I have gone through this support forum, and it looks like all of these posts are for the same issue: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416843 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416646 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416800 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416794 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416820 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416783 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1415832 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416685 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1412113 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416247 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1405626 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416112 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416294 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416350 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416113 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416263 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416061 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416241 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416330 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1415775 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1415892 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1415735 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1415819

To me, from reading through these pages and other places online, it appears that the problem is triggered by an update to a recent version of Firefox, an update to a recent version of Android, or a combination of both. It also appears that updating the app will fix the issue (updating at all, not updating to a specific version), or reinstalling the app. Some have said they had luck with clearing the cache and restarting their phone. Some have also said that despite these fixes working temporarily, the issue reoccurred for them.

Many recent reviews in the Google Play Store page seem to be talking about this issue: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.mozilla.firefox&hl=en_US&gl=US I will also attach screenshots of a few of the relevant reviews.

Here is also a forum post on Lemmy talking about this issue: https://lemmy.ml/post/1541824

I figure that I will just be able to wait for the next version of Firefox to be released, and it will fix itself, since I do not want to lose my browser data. I am just making this post because I was wondering if this is a known issue to the devs, or if they read the support forum or the Play Store reviews. I tried looking through the issue tracker at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/describecomponents.cgi?product=Fenix but I could not find any relevant entries.

Thanks for any response! Not trying to bug anyone or be negative, Firefox is amazing and I am super appreciative for all of the devs, and the community. I thought maybe collecting all the info in one place might be helpful for someone.
