Hi. Around the last few days of July the videos on Youtube started freezing like when they stop playing to load, except it never stops loading and continue the video. When I skip ahead it plays for a few seconds and then stops again. I tried playing videos on other sites, and the same thing happens. The Youtube app works perfectly, and so does the Netflix app and the Chrome app - so I know it's a problem particular to the Firefox app. I removed most of my add-ons to test and it didn't help (the only ones I didn't remove are the uBlock Origin and the Search by Image ones). Also tried uninstalling and installing the app again, but no dice. Any idea how I can fix that?

I can no longer send e-letters, though I can receive them. "Send now" has been replaced with an icon resembling a pen balanced diagonally, i.e.: "/", but pressing on that icon gives no result. What must I do to be able to send e-letters again?

Thank you for your attention in this matter.

Since the latest update 114.2 I cannot get Firefox to work properly on my Samsung phone. I have Version 8 of android operating system on the phone. When I attempt to search I just get a blank screen. In the web address box it just has an icon with a line through it and the web address. Refuses to display website. Doesn’t let me change from private browsing to regular browsing. Nothing I do seems to have any effect. Yes, I know I have an older phone but it was fine until this update.

I saw a similar problem and the user said thus 114.2 fixed the problem. Well, it broke mine. Please advise how to correct this problem. Thanks.

I am not on my phone. So the operating system info gathered is not from the system I use on my phone.

Hi,

Since update to Firefox for Android v114.1.1 I'm unable to:

  1. Open any webpage, either by typing the URL or selecting something from bookmarks/homepage. Even the tabs which were previously loaded are shown as blank screen
  1. Sync tabs or Access Firefox account. Because I had lots of tabs opened I tried to sync tabs to my desktop Firefox browser using Firefox account, nothing happens when I click on sync

Refer to screenshot attached for build number and other development and release details.

The historic opened tabs are critical for me so I don't have the option to delete the app and install again. Though I tried to clear cache from Android settings but that didn't help either.

About Firefox -> Crashes tab is showing some crash details that is also attached in the post.

As with other recent posters on this support forum, I am also experiencing the bug on Firefox for Android 114.2.0 where all pages fail to load, only a blank screen is shown, along with the padlock icon having a red slash.

This started 2 days ago when I updated to Firefox 114.2.0 and also updated to Android 13 patch level June 1, 2023.

I will attach screenshots of the blank page, the Firefox about page, the Play Store app info, and the Settings app info.

I have gone through this support forum, and it looks like all of these posts are for the same issue: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416843 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416646 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416800 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416794 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416820 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416783 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1415832 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416685 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1412113 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416247 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1405626 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416112 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416294 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416350 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416113 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416263 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416061 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416241 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416330 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1415775 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1415892 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1415735 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1415819

To me, from reading through these pages and other places online, it appears that the problem is triggered by an update to a recent version of Firefox, an update to a recent version of Android, or a combination of both. It also appears that updating the app will fix the issue (updating at all, not updating to a specific version), or reinstalling the app. Some have said they had luck with clearing the cache and restarting their phone. Some have also said that despite these fixes working temporarily, the issue reoccurred for them.

Many recent reviews in the Google Play Store page seem to be talking about this issue: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.mozilla.firefox&hl=en_US&gl=US I will also attach screenshots of a few of the relevant reviews.

Here is also a forum post on Lemmy talking about this issue: https://lemmy.ml/post/1541824

I figure that I will just be able to wait for the next version of Firefox to be released, and it will fix itself, since I do not want to lose my browser data. I am just making this post because I was wondering if this is a known issue to the devs, or if they read the support forum or the Play Store reviews. I tried looking through the issue tracker at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/describecomponents.cgi?product=Fenix but I could not find any relevant entries.

Thanks for any response! Not trying to bug anyone or be negative, Firefox is amazing and I am super appreciative for all of the devs, and the community. I thought maybe collecting all the info in one place might be helpful for someone.

Hi,

We use about ten Android tablets running Firefox in our shop for our employees to enter on a webpage daily some informations. Tablets are programmed to keep display active 24h/7d, firefox is pinned so the app stay opened and users don't go to other app. The extension LeechBlock NG prevent users from accessing other webistes. Everything work well except on mondays morning.

Without fault first person to try to connect on the website will see the app crash to the desktop. Since the app is pinned user will have to wait for a supervisor to come in and unpin the crashed (and invisible) app, re-launch it and pin it. Then it will work all week without issue as long as the tablet is used at least once a day. We recently added a new tablet which is used less than others and that one does crash during the week but never twice in same day. Here's the crash report that we have (I checked multiples tablets and they all share the same crash code):

Wondering if someone can help me decypher this to fix/prevent it. Is it the extension or browser itself that cause the crash if the page hasn't changed long enough? Thanks for suggestions (I will not consider "have you tried without the extension" as a valid suggestion)

Can not save images from Google Images, by holding down on the image, and then tapping save image. The menu simply does not pop-up. Holding down on the image results in selection of the image description below. Sometimes you can not save it form the website either, but that is because of website configuration and you can not save it on other browsers, but on other browsers you can save from Google Images by holding down on an image, so it is only the issue of Firefox and not the Google Images website. This issue seems to be present for over 2 years based on online feedback, and it is still not fixed.

Dear support team,

I am experiencing a problem with one specific website, zerohedge.com. Whenever I use the back button to return from an article to the home page, the page appears completely blank, and I am forced to refresh it every time. This is happening on the Android version of Firefox, version 111.1.1 (Build #2015941331) with NoScript and PrivacyBadger add-ons installed.

I have not made any changes to the settings, and this problem has only started occurring about a week ago. I have never observed this behavior before.

YouTube videos on Firefox Android Stable, Beta, and Nighty, experience significant frame drops when viewing "Stats" both on AVC1 and VP9, and on all resolutions. I checked about:config in both Beta and Nightly and HW acceleration was enabled. This was true for a FRESH install as well. I tried this on other devices and the problem persists. Mull, which is a fork of Fennec, plays the same videos without any problems. Other browsers are also fine.

Tested on Samsung S20 One UI 5.1 (Android 13). Tested on Samsung A13 One UI 5.0 (Android 13). Tested Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact (Android 10). Tested on Sony Xperia XZ1 (Android 9).

I noticed that on a regular basis, Firefox Android slows down dramatically after 1 or 2 hours of browsing. The only fix of the problem is to force stop the browser and launch it again. This happens consistently as well after disabling extentions. Firefox is updated to the latest version, 110.
