The keyboard when using Firefox Android on my Galaxy S24+ suddenly disappears then starts opening and closing and eventually I'm left with the a blank space where the keyboard sits but I can type on the blank area and the keyboard responds with characters. Eventually I have to repeatedly close Firefox Android to get it to operate correctly. Clearing the keyboard app (Samsung) seems to help.

I have been using the "install as app" feature in Firefox for Android for years. It is a great feature for appifying services that don't have a dedicated app and for getting around poorly implemented stand alone apps. Last night I tried to delete a redundant "app" icon from a web page that I made a shortcut for in Firefox. Apparently removing the shortcut icon via the normal Android UI also completely removed Firefox and all my other app shortcuts that I made in Firefox before. Please fix this bug ASAP if you are able, I understand it also may be an Android thing you can't fix. I have not recreated the bug because it is very annoying to have to reinstall and reconfigure Firefox.

Good luck!

For the love of God and all that is holy, make me not pissed off. I have a red star over my Firefox browser icon, yet when I go into it, it does not direct me to what needs addressing. The red star will not go away. Fix your shit. You've also pissed me off further, for the fact that I have to resort to swearing.

I open Gmail links and Firefox opens then in a floating window in android tablet. How to fix this? This is really annoying. I've tried unchecking the Gmail open links in Gmail to speed up browsing setting but that didn't work. Firefox is my default browser . I'm on news Lenovo tablet. I installed Firefox and from Day one I have this problem even before changing any Firefox settings. When I change default browser to Google Chrome it works fine . Also on my Samsung phone the Gmail links open fine in Firefox. I'm only having this problem on my tablet. Can anyone please help?

Surely I'm not the only one, when I try to paste in to a field in firefox 122.01 stock android 13, the paste buttons disappears almost immediately after you long press on a text field. Maybe 1 time in 3 it works ok.

Also, does anyone else have an issue with accessing facebook in firefox? Most times you try to type in a text box, it appears under the on-screen keyboard.

I have been using Firefox for Android Beta for several years in various phones. I recently bought a new phone and the browser no longer shows an option to "Quit" when I touch the three dots on the right side of the search bar. As a result, some websites stay connected after the browser is closed. When I restart the browser I am still logged in to the websites. How can I change this? The previous phone was using version 123.0b3. The current phone is using version: 123.0b7 Thanks. Jim Hampton

I have an issue with my keyboard not showing up when I try to type in search bars specifically when the sites are saved as app shortcuts. The keyboard works fine when the sites are tabs within the firefox app but once I save sites as a shortcut and open through the shortcut, the keyboard will appear for a split second and disappear right away.

Hello all,

Recently, I was browsing a website when Firefox (Windows 10, version 122) suddenly showed me an info bar asking me to turn on DRM content. While the message seems clear, I still wish to ask if it may be possible that websites force Firefox to download DRM modules and load them against my choice (and if possible to explain, how Firefox knows that DRM content is present on the page to begin with).

A copy of the pop-up I found online is attached to this post.

Thank you all in advance!

Firefox mobile sometimes zooms in without able to zoom out on all sites. Seems to only happen whenever the samsung app store updates it. for context, i downloaded firefox through google play store but the samsung store for some reason updates the app every now and then. It happened twice so far, and reinstalling it on the play store seems to fix it

Since release 114.0 the tabs tray doesn't completely open in horizontal mode on my device(s) (Pixel 2 & Zenfone 9, Android 13). I click the tabs button, then swipe the tray up to open it now. Screenshots show what happens when I click the tabs button. This happens in Firefox and Fennec (F-Droid)

As best I can tell, this started happening after Improve collapse animation of the tabs tray FAB & scrim / 444597e.

I'm noticing some inconsistent (and irritating) behavior when tapping the urlbar in Firefox for Android. I have noticed 3 distinct options, either it will highlight the entire url as expected, will only highlight the tail end of the url (after the initial /), or it will not highlight anything.

Is there a setting to configure this behavior?

Hi Members, I know this question comes up regularly, but I'm asking it again please.

The Firefox mobile browser has the 'Collections' group tab feature, but is there a way of seeing these grouped tabs either at the top or bottom of the browser app page?

Is there plans in the future to instigate the feature, or can it be turned on in the development mode settings?

I found most other mobile browsers have the feature

Thanks

Hi, taking a screenshot of a webpage when using the Firefox mobile browser doesn't support scroll capturing of the page image.

Is this a bug, or possibly it's a setting that's disabled in Firefox mobile? Other browsers on my Nothing phone 2 don't have this issue (see screenshot image notice where a scroll capture button is missing above the share button )

Thanks

Whenever I start highlighting something in the Firefox app for Android, the highlight segment always snapps to the top of the page. It doesn't matter if I'm using the front or end of the highlighter, unless I am extremely careful and only want to highlight one or two words, it will always jump to the top of the page and highlight everything inbetween.

As you can understand, this is highly frustrating.

This seems to happen regardless of if I have extensions installed or not.

I am using a Pixel 6 Pro phone.
