I'm getting a black screen while trying to view VR videos from Firefox Mobile.

I've tried VR videos from Chrome Mobile and it works fine there. It also works fine on Firefox Desktop.

So, only Firefox Mobile is having issues with VR videos for some reason.

Not sure what has happened but in the last 2-3 days I am no longer able to long press on an image or video in Firefox mobile browser to bring up options to save, share etc.

Happens on multiple websites including ones that worked previously, can't remember if Firefox updated in the last few days but the issue has only just started.

Have cleared cache, reinstalled, all permissions needed to save images/videos are allowed, but had no effect on this issue.

Hello,

I choose to use FireFox when viewing video content. Only I have this persistent issue when I'm watching/listening a video/podcast and I need to goto a different Tab/Page or use an App or perform a different task, when I return to the tab with paused video it will reload and then the video page will refresh or re-open back to the video list/menu. This causes me to lose my position in the timeline and must find my place again manually. I've noticed this happens after a certain amount of time has passed, not much though, like 60 seconds or so, maybe more. This is frustrating and time consuming and I've noticed this doesn't occur in many chromium based browsers. That said, I strive to avoid google altogether and would rather stick it out with Firefox.

Thank you for reading my question, any advice is appreciated.

Firefox Android: Youtube can't play full screen in landscape mode

Dear friends,

My mobile phone is OnePlus 8 Pro. ColorOS 13.0/Android 13. Firefox ver 111.1.1.

I like playing YouTube video in floating windows over other apps as shown in 1st pic. Therefore I can open other app on phone while still watching video.

Here is my trick: Step 1: access m.youtube.com in browser then play a video. Step 2: Tap the full screen button (the square in bottom-right corner of the video screen ). The video screen enlarges and rotates from portrait to landscape full screen mode. Step 3: Use 3-button navigation. tap 'Home' button then mobile phone go to home page with the YouTube video displaying in a small window over other apps. The browser could be firefox or chrome. Both works fine for me for years. I prefer firefox.

However since last week, I can't play this trick in firefox. Chrome still works fine.

In firefox, the weird thing happened in step 2: after tapping the full screen button, the video displayed in portrait mode. It didn't rotate to landscape full screen mode. Please refer to pic 2.

Anyone has idea how to fix this? Many many thanks!

Firefox doesn't play Youtube videos. When opening Youtube website, the loading progress bar stops at around 80% and the video keeps showing the loading circle when pressing 'play' button.

Seems like only the tabs that have been opened for a while are affected. When opening the same video in the new tab, the issue is gone.

When the app is force stopped and started again, the issue disappears and then appears again after some time.

Installed add-ons: uBlock Origin Privacy Badger Video Background Play Fix

The issue persists when all add-ons are disabled. Can be reproduced when using a mobile network without a VPN connection.

I haven't tried to reproduce the issue with all the add-ons initially disabled.

I've found similar issues, that are however not limited to Youtube: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1411513 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1419131 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1374967

This issue is focused on Youtube, so that hopefully it will be easier to debug.

Thank you for developing and contributing to Firefox for Android. It's a modern and competitive mobile browser. I appreciate your effort!

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.

Just updated to latest version of Firefox for Android (ver 113). When I try to watch a YouTube video in full screen, the app suddenly closes, as if I pressed the home button (note: I say "close" rather than "crash" because when I reopen it, all the pages are still loaded). This doesn't happen every time, but it is annoying. Is there any way to fix this?

Hi, I am using Firefox Beta for Android on my android phone. Its OS is Oreo (Android 8). Since Firefox Beta for Android 118.0b2, There is no audio on any website in Beta & Nightly. Firefox Stable and other browsers work just fine. Videos or online audio players work but there is no sound. I tried deleting cache, resetting the app and uninstalled and reinstalled the Beta and Nighty but the problem persists. I have searched online for help but I couldn't find any similar complaints. The audio on my phone works just fine. There is problem only in Firefox Beta (& Nightly) for Android. I don't have any extensions installed. I need your help. Thank you.

Hi, I have a problem with my firefox app. Everytime I play or skip a port of a video, it plays stuttering and return normal only If I rewind some second (if I pause it nothing change). Anyone knows why? Is there some way to solve this problem? I have deleted every data, cookies etc, every add-on and reinstalled the app but nothing changed. I also formatted every setting of my device but same result. Oh, also, this problem don't happen with other apps like gallery or chrome video (I hope bitrate doesn't cause problems).) .
