Hey, so, there is an issue I've been facing. There's a site I've visited a few times on mobile and stopped using a bit ago, but the thing is no matter what I do, it keeps popping up as an autocomplete when I'm typing in the search bar. This only happens on the mobile version of Firefox, it doesn't pop up on the desktop version even though they are synced together, and no matter what I Google, it keeps showing me the instructions to delete autofill entries on the desktop browser. Literally nothing comes up for the android version, or any mobile version at all. Please help, this is exceptionally frustrating.

MANY Websites refuse to adjust to mobile screen size, including Google Mail. Text is not wrapped or shrunk to screen width.

Your "help fix" suggestion turn on and off desktop mode doesn't work.

It was working in previous version before updating to latest Firefox build earlier this week.

The latest stable Android release running on Android 11 with latest updates: >> 98.2.0 (Build #2015868577), 2b529a583+ AC: 98.0.12, 9ad94b2a33 GV: 98.0.1-20220313140707 AS: 91.0.1 << Example Screen shot attached from Google Mail.

Webpages jump "up" every so often while scrolling down

This occurs reliable for me right now on Firefox Mobile on https://aphyr.com/posts/358-a-history-of-leather-at-pride-1965-1995

While scrolling down the webpage, occasionally, about half a second after I lift my finger from the page, the viewport "jumps" up 1-2 paragraphs. This can happen more than once after I've stopped scrolling, or not at all. It appears to also sometimes happen while scrolling, but I can't reliably reproduce that part.

I've uploaded a video of this to https://i.imgur.com/guNho5G.mp4. It's a bit blurry, but the key point is there: I scroll down the page, slowly, and then right before the video loops, the screen "jumps up" once.

This also happens on https://www.egscomics.com/ occasionally, but on that webpage, it's only when I'm zoomed in on the text at the bottom, and scrolling slowly. Much less reliable to reproduce than the blog post on aphyr.com.

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.

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?

When I try to go to google on Firefox for android, the website doesn't load and instead all I get is a white, blank page. When I search using google in the address bar, the results show up. But then if I click the google icon to go to the google homepage, I get the blank white page again. What is going on? Also the desktop version of the site works, but the mobile version does not. It just stopped working this morning and nothing on my device had changed. I tried uninstalling firefox multiple times and still every time I redownload firefox, I get the same issue. I've been a longtime user of firefox user and the first time I have had a major issue like this.

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...

From version 110 and up, there are websites where the autofill no longer works. The option to select your saved users & PWs comes up but upon selecting one, nothing gets filled. On other websites the autofill works as intended. Going to the real debrid website is the one I can accurately reproduce the issues on. With version 109 and below, the autofill works. Is there a proper work around besides having to go into the settings, finding out the password and inputting it manually?

The picture-in-picture function no longer works on my phone when viewing YouTube videos on my Android Firefox app.

In previous versions, I was able to enter full-screen mode while playing a YouTube video, then click the "home" button on my phone, and the video would play in picture-in-picture mode while I scrolled through other apps.

I am fully updated as of today (4/11/2023), I have tried the functionality with no add-ons and with the "Video Background Player" add-on, and I have double-checked to make sure that the "picture-in-picture" permission is checked for the app (it is).

My device specs are attached in the image below.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Steps to reproduce problem. 1. Navigate to YouTube with Firefox for Android. 2. Open page of any video which has comments. 3. Switch webpage display mode to 'version for PC'. 4. Now the page layout top-to-bottom should be like: - player with main video - list of videos that may interest you - comments section 5. Expected behavior: load comments section below list of recommended videos, like Chromium based browsers do. 6. Actual behavior: Firefox fails to load comments section, perhaps some script doesn't fire up.

On my new Samsung S21 cellphone many (but not all) websites shows as if "Desktop site=on" radiobutton was selected in the Firefox for Android settings, even if it isn't. This happens for e.g. "di.se" and "expressen.se". But on my old Samsung S10e these websites still works fine (I have the latest Firefox version 94.1.2 installed on both cellphones).

I tried to remove and reinstall Firefox on the S21 but that didn't fix the problem. (It works fine with Chrome on both cellphones, so it's probably not a website issue).
