Possible text rendering glitch on Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2017) SM-T380 Android Tablet

Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2017) SM-T380 Android version: 9 Firefox 115.0.1 Only Addon is ublock origin

I've had this problem for months now, but it was never as bad as it has become now on the latest Firefox 115.0.1 Android release. The issue would (seemingly) mainly occur on text heavy websites, like Wikipedia, but it never disrupted me enough to file a report until now. It's now happening on practically every website I can visit.

Basically, huge 'blocks' of websites will be 'blanked out', and the only way to potentially work around this is to pinch zoom until these 'blocks' get out of the way of the text/page elements they're obscuring. This isn't consistent however, so you can't reliably just pinch to zoom to a perfect level to have the page render all the way correctly, the 'blocks' will simply move to obscure other parts as you're zooming and trying to fix whichever specific portion of the screen you want to see properly.

So far I've tried disabling ublock origin for pages this was occurring on, clearing the program cache, restarting my phone, clearing all browser cache/history, toggling the different Accessibility options pertaining to page zoom, and none of these things have worked at all.

I've attached some screenshots of how this looks when zooming in. Other browsers (the Samsung browser, specifically) don't have this issue on this tablet, and I saw one google play store Firefox app review with my same device also mention having a similar sounding issue.

Anyone have any idea what the issue could be? If more screenshots from a different website are needed, or if I should have posted this elsewhere, please let me know.

I stupidly exported my Google browser bookmarks to Firefox when setting up on a new device and lost all my firefox bookmarks from all my other devices as a result. I am utterly horrified and freaking out - it's years of bookmarked articles that I'd even organised into folders! Is there any way to get them back?

F.ex. I never use the home button, but open new tabs all the time. Would be nice if I could replace the home button with one that opens a new tab

firefox app on galaxy s23 minimizes once when I try to full screen videos

On youtube mobile site or a reddit video, when I click the bottom right button to fullscreen the video, a message pops up that says 'entering fullscreen mode' (with a firefox logo on the left of the message) and then firefox closes and I'm at my android home page

This seems to happen when I watch videos in a new instance. If I reopen firefox to the video and then try fullscreen again, it goes full screen no problem. So basically it's annoying and happens when I try to watch any video full screen for the first time.

Is this a known bug? Wasn't an issue on my old phone (I just got the galaxy s23).

Firefox is fully updated from playstore. Only addons installed is ublock origin and Privacy Badger

Thank you for any assistance

Hello Everyone,


I have Firefox installed on my desktop and laptop but cannot download it onto my Galaxy A12 mobile.

When trying through Play Store it constantly informs me “Something went wrong, try again.”

When trying to download it from the internet, the Installation circle keeps revolving and nothing happens.


Do you have any advice please?

Thank you

Colin
