Sometimes when I click full-screen on a video, the app view disappears, and I am back out on the home screen. I still hear the video, and can switch back to Firefox and try full-screen again. It usually (maybe always) works the second time.

When it happens, I can briefly see the video go full-screen and rotate to landscape. When the view has disappeared the screen rotates back to portrait. Whenever a video stays in portrait mode when going full-screen, the problem does not occur.

Even when closing firefox, I can still hear the video. So I think it is related to this issue: [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1420245]

What I have tried:

  • Switching versions of firefox, they all have the same issue; Firefox, Firefox Nightly, and Fennec.
  • Clearing cache and disabling add-ons has not worked, but seemed to make it happen less frequently for a while (not sure).
  • I tried activating automatic screen rotation, but this made the problem worse. It would then not work the second time and firefox would only display part of the website in the top right corner of the screen. Closing it and re-opening it multiple times did not work. I had to turn auto-rotate back off.
  • I'm using the KISS launcher. Tried switching to various other launchers, but it made no difference.


OS: Calyx OS 4.12 HW: FairPhone 4 Firefox: Fennec v116, Firefox Nightly Add-ons: uBlock Origin, Tampermonkey

I'm having an issue with Firefox on Android. On certain websites (e.g., Yahoo News, Calscape.org, Google search results--with Goggle Search Fixer add-on enabled), I can scroll down the page without issue, but scrolling slowly back up toward the top of the page with downward drags of my finger is only responsive half of the time. That is, I can only scroll back up with every-other downward swipe/drag of my finger. This odd behavior does not happen with other mobile browsers (I'm on Android 13 and using a Galaxy A53 5G). Any suggestions?

My phone is not new and quick in the terms of performance so I do not update the OC. Please find the error examples, broeser version and my phone's system info attached in a form of screenshots.

Thank you Regards, Denis

I am on Android Firefox and I accidentally chose "Always" on the pop-up asking where I want my downloaded items to go. I want to change it because where the files are now sent is inconvenient at best but i cannot find such an option to change my preference in either the Firefox settings bar nor my phone's device settings.

Hey,

I had to replace my Android phone and send the old one in. I had the google cloud backup activated + used the transfer data and apps function when migrating (Android to Android). However, it seems like my bookmarks are gone, I guess there is no way to get them back. Is this correct behavior?

I understand that there is Firefox sync and save feature (which I use on my personal device). However my understanding was that migrating phones with the "copy apps & data" function should migrate things seamless without having to worry about custom logins in each app. Did I do something wrong? Or is this understanding wrong? If so, would this be different in ios (this was a very painful experience that I don't want to repeat)?

Thanks for your help & sorry if this is only partially Firefox specific and partially about my general understanding.
