share all tabs PDF saving doesn't work

Hi, I have a plenty of tabs accumulated in my FF on Android, v119.1.1 (Build #2015984795), 2a75e15258+ GV: 119.0.2-20231108221453 AS: 119.0. Within Tabs menu there is S… (read more)

Hi,

I have a plenty of tabs accumulated in my FF on Android, v119.1.1 (Build #2015984795), 2a75e15258+ GV: 119.0.2-20231108221453 AS: 119.0.

Within Tabs menu there is Share all tabs option. When clicked, the Save as PDF, Print, and typical android sharing options are presented.

Click on Save as PDF does nothing. Sharing to other apps works partially (text list is shared, but some parts of it are not kinks but a concatenated text of tabs titles combined together, not clickable, not https:// part).

The phone has lots of tabs, many of which are deactivated.

I want to backup them and review on bigger screen, but can't do that :)

Sharing to other devices connected via Mozilla account shares only subset of tabs, not sure about the logic, the most recent ones for sure + some deactivated but not all of them.

I tested this in another browser called Google Chrome, and the issue is not present there.

I've attached two screenshots of the same website in Firefox Android, where I have long-pressed on an image in order to share it with another app (e.g. Signal, Fastmail). The website in question is my self-hosted PhotoPrism instance which I am trying to use as a replacement for Google Photos.

As you can see, in one of the screenshots, most of the options are missing, including sharing with another app. That screenshot is of the website installed on my home screen as a PWA (Progressive Web App). It seems that it is not possible to use the Android "share" functionality for images inside a PWA. Is this correct? If so, is there any workaround?

I would love to be able to use a PWA for PhotoPrism because having to navigate manually to my photos app in a browser is clunky, but if I am unable to share photos out, then I don't think I'll be able to use the PWA.

On the mobile app for Android (Google Pixel 2 XL, Android version 11), there's this really annoying issue where tabs are constantly duplicated. Normally, it's when I search something on Google (through Firefox). It pulls up the search results, of course. But when I hit a link, here's what happens: the tab is redirected as it should be, but simultaneously another tab is opened, which is a duplicate of the original tab (the one with the search results), and Firefox switches to view that tab, tab 2. So I have to go back to tab 1 to see whatever, and usually I then close tab 2. After this, once I've been hit a few links on a single tab, caused that tab to redirect a few times, it stops doing this. I've also noticed a similar issue, specifically with Google images in Firefox. Sometimes, when I open a picture to view it, every time I go to the tab with the picture, it opens a tab of the Google images page (before I selected a picture). This will happen endlessly sometimes, every time I open the tab to view the picture, meaning I never actually get to see the picture.

Since a few weeks, the app has been draining my battery like crazy. We're talking about higher energy consume than games, and with less screen-on time. I'm using a Pixel 7 pro, Firefox since I got it, and never had this issues until now. I was forced to uninstall it as ir was unbearable to use my phone and having it die several hours before it used to. After that I installed Chrome, which is not famous for being battery friendly, and the problems are completely gone.

I keep my apps ALWAYS up to date with updates, así well as my phone, so I'm sure the issue has something to do with Firefox app.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Hi there, I'm using Firefox for Android, and I have issue where videos will not start after some time. Here's my original report/review on the PlayStore: Videos tend to freeze after a few hours of not using the app. After I start using the app again, video won't resume, nor play in another tab. I have to go through options to kill the app, and launch it again.

Repro steps:

  1. Open YouTube or Twitter
  2. Play some videos
  3. Switch to some other app
  4. Wait for couple of hours (Yeah, i know)
  5. Return to Firefox and try to play any video
  6. Observe that video will not start, only the video player's UI gets visible

More info:

  • Phone model: Pixel 6
  • Bulleted list itemOS: Android 14, and I've had this issue on 12 and 13 as well
  • App: Firefox for Android, and I'm having the same issue on Nightly as well
  • App version: The latest (119.1.1), and I've had this issue for at least a year. I started using firefox for watching YouTube since the extensions were available on Nightly version under some settings and special extensions lists.
  • Extensions: uBlock Origin and Video Background Play Fix

I keep encountering an error when using the "Install/Add to Homescreen" interaction. I will get an error that says " this shortcut already exists" even when it doesn't. It's happened a few times, and I can only assume that some sort of glitch is occurring as I move the shortcut around on my home screen. This error only occurs if I accidentally lift my finger off the screen while dragging the icon to a spot. It's like the shortcut is being placed somewhere invisible in that moment and I cannot see it. I only have one page on my home screen, and I have tried adding a second screen and moving my apps there. I've tried deleting all my widgets and Homescreen folders as well. It's still recognizing a shortcut that doesn't exist.

Phone details if that helps

I use a samsung galaxy A12, and I have issue with the download functionality. Whenever I'm downloading and I pause or the Internet becomes bad, when I resume the download or "try again", it completes the download but the file becomes corrupted and won't open in my phones storage. And I notice that the size of the file is always less than the actual size downloaded, which indicates that it stopped downloading into the local storage at the point it paused or network became bad.

It'll download completely, but the file downloaded into the phone becomes corrupted and useless. It's annoying that a browser has such a problem in 2023.

Please, fix up ASAP.

About a week ago my phone (Sony Xperia ZX2 Premium running Android 10) started 'crashing to the lock screen' whenever a download finished in the mobile version of Firefox. If multiple files are downloaded in short succession a popup will appear informing me that the 'System UI keeps stopping', with a prompt to close the app or to get to the app info (see the attached photo - clicking either option sends me back to the lockscreen, with the only difference being that after unlocking the phone the former will have stayed with Firefox in focus, and the latter having opened the Settings app on the System UI entry).

Going to about:crashes shows no recent crashes on Firefox's ends. (Plus, Firefox shows no signs of having been closed [like tabs being reloaded] after unlocking the phone again post-crash). The issue currently only happens when downloading a file through Firefox; downloading a file through Edge, Discord, or the Google Drive app produces no problems.

I have already tried force-stopping and restarting Firefox, restarting the phone, and clearing the download history with no luck. Furthermore, I have also checked for updates for the system, the Google Play Store, and Firefox for Android, however all of them were already up to date.

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.
