I have no idea what is happening... But after restarting, clearing my cache, making sure I have data and it is working for other apps... Still no results.

No matter what, whether I try to type in a URL, click on a link in the google app, or refresh a page I already have open, the app doesn't even attempt to load a page or throw up an error. Just a blank background, no loading bar, no error messages, and no redirects...

I'm using Android 13 and Firefox is updated to the latest update. When I Google something and select an image, Firefox freezes and I either have to reload the page and the image will load or I have to close & reopen the app and switch to the Images tab. This is on the main Google search page. Images selected in the Google Images tab work as expected.

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?

Android Firefox v114.1.0 (Build #2015955411), 4bddc25255+ Samsung Galaxy S9+ Android v10

Hello,

Firefox was upgraded on my Android phone to the version above yesterday, and all existing tabs or any new websites are now blank (see second image attached). No page will load, no open tabs have any content / cant reload them etc. Clearing cache for the app, hasnt worked either.

Just hoping there is a fix rather than blowing everything away and then finding out there is still an issue.

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.

I have the problem that Firefox does not correctly recognize when I want to scroll up on a web page. This often causes me to accidentally refresh the page. Usually this should only happen when I'm already at the top of the website and then swipe down again and not in the middle of the website. I have even tried Firefox Nightly and Klar, but the issue occurs with every browser. Is there perhaps some trick or hidden setting that causes the browser to scroll reasonably again instead of constantly refreshing the website?

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).

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.

So I have installed Firefox on my Galaxy S20 Plus running Android 12. All permissions are granted and everything is working except the camera. When testing it with https://webcammictest.com/ it ask for permission to use the camera and mic. I of cause allow the use and afterwards it says: The device is not found.

I have tested the mic alone and it is working. The test site is also working in Chrome, Edge, Vivaldi and Brave. So chromium browser do not have any issue with the camera or mic. I have also tried other tests sites with the same result.

I first noticed it when I had to call my doctor which sent a link to a site with camera feedback on. I was surprised and stressed about it wasn't working. Having a doctor waiting and a sick child, while installing Chrome to get it working, was not a fun experience.

Hello,

Firefox 120 is freezing my Android 11 phone when I start typing on the search bar (weirdly it start to happens when a space is inserted). It freezes so hard that pretty much it takes 30-min to 1 hour for the phone to restart or the battery to drain.

Reverting to 119.1.1 solves the problem immediately.

My guess would be that maybe the search bar or the suggestion related code introduced something weird, as I do have a lot of bookmarks. Nevertheless, it's definitely a new issue (been using Firefox mobile since first day around 2010) and introduced in 120.0.

Since the phone is hard freezing, I can't even connect in ADB and try to see any message hinting at what's wrong. If there's a crash trace maybe some info could be dug there.

Thanks in advance for the help!

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.

Firefox on my android phone times out on any webpage whenever I am not connected to a Wi-Fi. All webpages and IP addresses timeout with no response. Same issue occurs on Firefox Beta app and Firefox Nightly. All other applications work as expected with full internet access on mobile data. The same pages/addresses respond as expected on Chrome and the built-in browser.

Simply put, all Firefox apps have no internet connectivity on mobile data.

Solutions I've attempted with no success or change: Re-install Firefox. Logging out of Firefox Sync. Clear Firefox data and cache. Disabling tracking protection. Disabling HTTPS-only mode. No proxy settings are enabled. Confirmed Firefox application has mobile data network privileges. Disabling, re-enabling mobile data network privs. Installing Firefox Beta and Firefox Nightly; same issue.

Another possibly related issue: Firefox does not follow routes from a Cisco AnyConnect VPN on my phone. Opening pages/IP addresses routed through the VPN are rejected or timeout as if the VPN is not active at all. The same pages/addresses respond as expected on Chrome and the built-in browser. This occurs over Wi-Fi as well, of course nothing works on mobile data as described above.

Device: Oneplus 8T (KB2003) OS: OxygenOS 13.1 (Android 13) Firefox version: 117.0.1
