mp4 wont play on 101.1.1 but does on 100.3.0 why? I have always been able to see my video play on android until recently. I suspect an upgrade has caused the issue. I have a tablet running an older version 100.3.0 and the video runs fine there as it always did on my phone. You get the "no video with supported format..." error message on the newer 101.1.1 version. Its annoying as the the video is an important part of my website.

Thanks for any help,

Rob

Sorry if this has already been addressed, the nature of the issue makes it very hard to search.

Firefox web access on my phone has been not working whatsoever for a few days now. The app opens, but no webpages load, including pages that were previously open in other tabs before the issue started. Instead of anything, there is just an empty grey screen with the bar at the top like usual. This also happens if I open any web URL in another app, like Discord or Gmail, and it tries to use my default browser (which is Firefox) to access it. Just straight greyness, no loading bar or anything. The issue isn't present in the default Samsung web browser, but honestly, I can't stand using anything other than Firefox, so even looking up help has had to wait until I could use my computer.

I've tried restarting my phone to no avail. I would like to try uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, but as far as I can tell there is no raw "copy a folder" way to back up my data for whatever reason, and when I tried backing up my data by creating a Firefox account for the first time and using sync... well, to do that, it tries to open a series of webpages. Which it can't do. So that was a dead end. And I would really like to avoid losing my tabs, bookmarks, and history if at all possible.

If I don't get an answer that works for me, I think I am going to enable developer access in my phone files and hook it up to my computer to try and force-backup my data, then uninstall and reinstall the app and see if that helps. Honestly, though, I'm really curious why this has happened and how I can prevent it in the future. Having my web browser suddenly just cease to function has been INCREDIBLY annoying.

Thank you for your time!

When I use Firefox on and android TV box and I want to access to a page it keeps re directing me to google.com It started a few updates ago then it stopped with one version and now it does it again. Version of Firefox is 104.2.0 (build #2015902897) it doesn't have about:config and I can't find any solution on the net. I appreciate the help

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.

When I try to sign into any Google product (Drive, Docs, Classroom, etc) in Firefox on my Android phone, it brings me directly to a "sign in with Microsoft" screen. I think this is because my old Microsoft account is the default account for Google products, but it is now deactivated so I can't sign in from there. I can't get out of that page, though, so I can't sign into any of my Google accounts at all through Firefox on my phone.

Firefox for Android 110.0.1

I have created a simple HTML login form (code pasted below). In the past it worked perfectly using Firefox on Android but now when I tap inside the email field the Suggested logins link appears above my keyboard as normal and, when I click on it, a list of suggested logins is presented as normal. If I tap on one of the suggested logins (A URL with ...... underneath representing the password) I am taken back to the login form but the suggested login has not populated the email and password fields which are still empty. So, I have to type or copy and paste the email and password into the fields in order to be able to login.

I have pasted the code below.

<meta charset="UTF-8"> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge"> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> <title>Document</title>

<form method="post"> <label for="email-input">Email</label> <input type="email" id="email-input" name="email" required> <label for="password-input">Password</label> <input type="password" id="password-input" name="password" required> <input type="submit" id="submit-input" value="Login" name="submit"> </form>

I encountered a problem occurring under LineageOS 20 (android 13) on a Sony ZX1 Compact. Can't check if it's the android version or just something with that Lineage ROM (which works perfectly with anything else):

When I make a PDF of a web page with Firefox and then just press "view", the pdf viewer says the file doesn't exist, even though it was saved correctly to the Download folder. Choosing Firefox itself as pdf viewer, I could determine that the viewer gets a file link like this:

content://org.mozilla.firefox.feature.downloads.fileprovider/Download/Download/Kanaren-Wetter%3A%20Sturm-Warnung%20zum%20Wochenende%20ausgegeben.pdf

Which appears to point not to the real Download folder, but perhaps to Firefox' subfolder in the Android/Data folder? The same link is given in any other OS, and normally it always works. Could it have to do with the fact that in LineasgeOS 20 (and quite surely also stock android 13) the Android folder is write protected ?

With some web pages, Firefox provides different links, like: content://media/external_primary/downloads/1000009015 and with those there's no problem. So I think may really be an issue with directory access.

I fiddled around a lot with OS settings and Firefox beta's about:config as well, but to no avail. Also de- and reinstalled Firefox.

Any idea what could be the cause ?

Hi everyone. I hope you're doing well.

So, I've been thinking about downloading the Firefox browser for Android but I am worried.

I saw this among the app permissions on Google Play Store: "download files without notification". And I am worried.

And I need to know:

- What files does Firefox download without notification?

- Why does Firefox download files without notification?

- When does Firefox download files without notification?

- Why and how should I trust an app to the have the ability to download anything it desires at anytime it desires without my knowledge or my choice to accept or decline?

Could you please help me and tell how this app is safe?

Thanks. Have a good day!

Hi all.

This happened yesterday 220610 on an Android 9 Nokia 8 using duckduckgo search in the Firefox Android browser.

Short two and three word 'News headlines' showing in address bar on a blank page. The words would fade in to view and disappear every two or three seconds.

It stopped after a few minutes and has not done it since. Has this happened to anyone else or is it just a function I am unaware of? Cheers

I have installed Firefox for Android on my Galaxy S22. When I click on the Firefox icon on my app screen to bring up the app, I get a page with "Firefox Browser" at the top, BUT the blank to enter a web address (that one wants to visit) shows at the left end a Google icon. I try to stay away from Google whenever possible. Whose browser will I be using if I type the desired web address into the described blank: Google or Firefox. If it is, in fact, the Firefox browser, why does it show the Google icon?

Thanks for reading, help and suggestions.
