Hi,

I have been watching YouTube videos on firefox android and have been clicking ful screen and landscape has been fine. Then over night a few days ago, it stopped. When I turn the phone to landscape, the video sound is playing but the video is blank, with no picture. It is fine in normal portrait just not when I click full screen when it was working.

I've cleared the cache and history, I've even unistalled Firefox and reinstalled it twice, once from the play store and once as the apk but to no avail. I have also disabled adons, tried the picture to picture, and autoplay but nothing works.

Any help to rectify and return my viewing would be appreciated.

I am writing to seek assistance regarding a challenge I have encountered while attempting to install a custom add-on from a file.

I have followed the steps to enable the debug menu on Firefox Nightly, and I have also successfully downloaded the custom add-on in XPI format to my mobile device. However, upon navigating to the Add-ons settings, I am unable to locate the option to install the add-on from a file.

I have reviewed the official documentation and community forums for guidance, but I have not found a solution specific to my situation.

Could you kindly provide detailed instructions on how to install a custom add-on from a file on Firefox Nightly for Android? If there have been any recent changes or updates in this regard, I would greatly appreciate any information or resources you could share. Thank you for your time and assistance. I value the work Mozilla does to enhance the Firefox experience and am eager to resolve this matter.

Best regards, Saad

[LG Electronics] I need a guide to use the Firefox Browser app on an Android GO device. Also, I need Mozilla developer contact information for support.

My name is Mr. Yeo, a developer at LG Electronics’ H&A headquarters.

         ============================================================================

In the past(2022), I had ever get in touch with <kapil@mozilla.com> by email about Fenix, which is available as Open Source on Github, to include it in our product.

But now, <kapil@mozilla.com> email address is not valid any more. So I had no choice but to leave an inquiry here.

==> Question 1

 :  Can you provide contact information for a new support person to replace <kapil@mozilla.com> for cooperation between LG Electronics and Mozilla?
         ============================================================================
         ============================================================================

Our team is considering a product for Android GO devices. So we're trying to mount the Firefox app here.

Because Android GO devices are low-end products (= RAM size : 2GB) An app such as Firefox Lite is more suitable than Firefox.

However, I found out that Firefox Lite support has ended. I also found articles mentioning Firefox Focus as a replacement.

==> Question 2

 :  From Mozilla's perspective, 
    we would like to ask what method you could suggest for companies developing low-end products 
    based on the Android GO platform to install Firefox apps.
         ============================================================================

Thanks.

Every time a youtube video is placed on landscape mode on the firefox app of my android phone it becomes a single blurred image with the audio playing as normal.

Youtube seems to work fine on other browsers and I have tried all basic fixes, like deleting cache/data/reinstalling app etc. Appreciate any help.

Edit. Okay I managed to fix the issue so I'm adding the solution here in case anyone runs into this problem. Apparantly youtube playback decided to enable "ambient mode", a feature I didn't even know existed and seems to not play well with a phones resolution.

Just click the settings gear while the video is playing in landscape (mine is on the top right) and disable the "Ambient mode" feature.

Hope this helps.

Firefox has been a great browser on my new S22 however I have noticed recently that it has been dropping my battery percentage extremely fast, and I notice its lower almost every minute I check. This is confirmed in the battery settings menu where it shows an abnormally high amount of usage, when I mainly use Firefox for general browsing and close background tabs.
