There is a feature of a website I use that does not work in my Android Firefox. The support guy in that website has told me that it happens because Firefox has not added a Clipboard API required for that feature. Are you planning to add it?

The website is acim.org/acim and the feature is making visual quotes. It works with Chrome as you can see in the attached screenshot. It's just that I would like to stick with Firefox no matter what I'm doing.

Thank you for your attention.

Juan Illán.

When I open websites with embedded Instagram or TikTok videos there is a play icon in the embedded video, but when tapping the play icon the video will not play. My current solution is to copy the url and paste it into chrome where the videos play just fine, but I'd rather they played in Firefox. Does anyone have a solution for this?

I love using firefox on android because of its add-ons support and firefox acount but the ram management seems to be awfully bad compared to other chromium based browsers, even if left for 20 minutes tabs refresh[irrespective of the number of tabs] and it happens way too often that now it is annoying. I do not want to switch browsers because i like using my FF account and sync feature but this annoyance is really getting to my head. Help is hugely appreciated!!!

I'm not sure what category this falls under, but Android is missing a critical feature: the save for offline viewing option, also known as the download page for offline viewing. Other Android browsers, such as Chrome and Samsung Internet, have this feature, but Firefox does not for inexplicable reasons. This should have been one of the first features added to the browser when it was released for the OS. It's been over a decade and this hasn't been resolved; what are you paying your programmers for if they can't integrate such a basic and necessary feature that everyone uses and requires? Please listen to the people.

I am desperately trying to figure out how to change my current location and Firefox so that it is more accurate, for some reason it has me located 200 miles west of my actual location. I have attempted to turn settings on to allow for better location, I have cleared cach, I have done several searches and all attempts using those prompts have done nothing. My last resort would be to uninstall Firefox and reinstall but that will cause all my information, Ie: passwords, bookmarks, site permissions to be lost as far as I am aware. I have another Android phone using Firefox and it has no issue with my location. Please, please somebody tell me how to fix this issue.

Hi!

Version: FF Android 101.2.0 (plus other version stuff I can provide if needed), Android 12

Just thought I'd report this because it appears to be a consistent, reasonably long-standing issue (months) on a popular news site. Or is it "just me"?

Website: https://alightmotionapk.co/mod/

Expected behaviour: I am able to open links and download files on this website as backround tabs and continue browsing.

Actual behaviour: 1. After a couple are opened, Firefox for Android hangs for very close to 30 seconds then does a deep redraw/repaint of all tabs and continues to function until I next try to open another background tab from that website. 2. During the hang tab interface continues to redraw, but the pages are not repainted and no taps events work. 3. At the end of this hang time, the pages appear to redraw from scratch and the context pop-up for the third long-press appears on top of whichever tab I was looking at.

It is 100% repro for me -- long-press fails when attempting to open the 3rd background tab, but repaint failure occurs earlier. There is something toxic happening.

Curiously, when I next view my Android Home screen, there is some sort deep refresh/repaint, as if it has been swapped-out or GC'd etc.

e.g. Is there some massive memory blow-out happening?

Context/workarounds: 1. I have tried clearing all browsing data and using a guess account on the phone. 2. I have no addons installed. 3. Neither Chrome nor FF Desktop exhibit this behavior. This is FF Android specific

Thanks!
