There is a forum where poster tried to embed YouTube video, but YouTube refused to deliver the data. All browsers display there instead their customized messages about website error. So does Firefox for Android 113.2.0, but in this message it refers to itself as Nightly. Seems like developers forgot to tweak some settings in project.


Nightly Can’t Open This Page

To protect your security, m.youtube.com will not allow Nightly to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

About 90% of the time, when I try to go to powerball.com on my android (12), it displays a message that "The request is blocked".

I don't know what the issue is but it's incredibly frustrating when I'm trying to check my numbers and I can't access this site.

What can I do to fix this?

Firefox Android 113 switches off Desktop Notifications for web version of YouTube

Hello, I believe that my Firefox android browser updated to version 113 on May 19, 2023. Up until that point, I had no issues with getting notifications sent to my device from the web version of YouTube accessed through Firefox. I could refresh the page and leave the Firefox app and still receive notifications. Ever since the update, every time the YouTube page is reloaded (which also happens when you leave the app) the Desktop Notifications toggle in the YouTube desktop mode settings switches to off. I can switch this toggle back on, the page is refreshed, and this toggle (and only this toggle) automatically switches to off. This happens every time and I am no longer receiving notificationsto my device. The YouTube app for Android is not involved in this, as I use Firefox to access the web version YouTube as an alternative. Please provide information that can help resolve this issue and/or please make a note of this issue so it can be resolved in the future. Thank you so much.

I just got a new phone (Pixel 7a) and embedded videos have closed captions enabled by default in Firefox. Even if I turn them off while watching one video, they'll be back on the next video. I want them to just be off by default. It's not an Android setting as far as I can tell - I have all live captioning turned off and the video player isn't showing captions when I use Chrome to watch the same videos. Here's a link to a video that has captions on by default when I view it in FF for Android. I've also included a screenshot of the CC controls.

Hello!

Firefox on Android won't display pop-ups. I've checked privacy setting but there's no checkbox for a popup blocker. Also tried about:config but didn't find any setting to change. Any ideas on how to be sure Firefox is comfigured to allow popups? I participate on a Zoom webinar and can't start Zoom through Firefox so have to use Chrome.

Thanks!

Hello Mozilla Support Team,

I hope you are doing well. I am writing to seek assistance with a compatibility issue I am experiencing with the Mozilla Firefox browser. Specifically, I am encountering problems with my website, "Les Horaires de Prière en France" (https://leshorairepriere.fr/), which provides prayer times in France

Here are the details of the issue:

Problem Description: When I try to access my website using Mozilla Firefox, I encounter certain problems such as slow loading times, layout distortion, or missing functionalities. This issue does not occur on other web browsers, and the website works perfectly fine on them. I would like to ensure that my website is compatible with Mozilla Firefox for a seamless user experience.

Mozilla Firefox Version: Could you please confirm whether my website is compatible with the latest version of Mozilla Firefox? I am currently using Mozilla Firefox version [Insert Your Firefox Version Here] to replicate the issue.

Specific Errors or Glitches: Please let me know if there are any specific error messages, glitches, or warnings that I should be aware of when accessing my website on Mozilla Firefox. This information would be crucial in diagnosing and resolving the issue.

Steps to Reproduce: Could you guide me through the steps to reproduce the issue on Mozilla Firefox? It would be helpful to have a detailed process to understand the problem better and work towards a solution.

Screenshots or Video Recording: If necessary, I can provide screenshots or video recordings of the issues I am encountering on Mozilla Firefox. Please let me know if this would assist in troubleshooting.

Recommendations and Fixes: I would greatly appreciate your guidance on how to make my website compatible with Mozilla Firefox or any necessary changes that need to be implemented on my end. It is essential for me to ensure that my users can access the prayer times information without any hindrance on this popular web browser.

Browser Compatibility Testing: If you have the capability to test my website on Mozilla Firefox, I would appreciate it. Please let me know the results of your testing and any specific observations or recommendations.

Thank you for your time and assistance in resolving this compatibility issue. I look forward to your guidance and support to ensure a seamless experience for all users visiting my prayer times website on Mozilla Firefox.

Best regards, Ahamd Ezat

How can I resolve the issue of my website not displaying properly on Mozilla Firefox browser, specifically with regards to the layout and formatting? Are there any specific CSS or HTML codes that need to be modified to ensure compatibility with Firefox, and are there any known compatibility issues between Firefox and certain web development frameworks or libraries that I should be aware of?

Hi, Suddenly Firefox Android can no longer open the magnet links. I can download and open the torrent with the torrent agent and I can also use the magnet links on Chrome Android, but on Firefox Android it doesn't work. I don't get any error message, it just doesn't work. I also tried Firefox Nightly, but that didn't work either. Anyone has an idea how can I solve this problem? Thanks in advance!

In Samsung Galaxy M23 5G smartphone (SM-M236B/DS) with Android 14 and Firefox 123.1.0 when I go to https://translate.google.com and insert a phrase, for example "I want a table" (you can try any words you want, single word or phrase) I hear the words distorted. This is happening after about 3 or 4 times or more tries when I hit the little speaker icon and waiting to finish the vocal pronunciation each time. I can't remember if this happened in earlier versions of Firefox for Android. I installed most of known browsers for Android (Opera, Edge, Vivaldi, Brave) and none has this problem, even the Samsung browser. I installed other versions of Firefox for Android (Focus, Beta for testers, Nightly for Developers) and all of them have the same problem. Also, I uninstalled and installed the original Firefox and I did restart of smartphone and also I connected bluetooth headphones but same problem. Maybe you will not hear the distortion in that smartphone above and android 14 combination with the first try but you will hear it in next tries. I don't know if this is happening in other Samsung SMARTPHONES. This problem is NOT happening in tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 4G And here is the audio sample. https://drive.google.com/file/d/10pWKAtJIDfgjgv3ELQisCj_qcOqtf3qF/view?usp=sharing

This broblem only happens in firefox, the other browsers worked fine, and i haven't set virustotal app to open any links by default.
