I posted about it in a review, and per request, am restating the issue here:

the Firefox for Android app has consistent and ongoing issues with embedded audio players/embedded audio files (most often file types hosted on dropbox and embedded on a secondary website) where the audio file will either not load at all, refuse to download because it has timed out the file without playing, or stop half way through and refuse to reload.

So far, I've had about a 30% success rate with using these embedded audio players across platforms, with the specific websites themselves looking into broken links and finding no issue.

On the same vein, YouTube as used through the mobile browser, while more successful, seems to struggle to load the page while scrolling, and occasionally stops playing videos altogether, even when reloaded and hard restarted.

When I attempt to use the Firefox browser I now get a page saying I should download Firefox. I already have Firefox; have used it for years. Current version 119.0 Perhaps I should get rid of it entirely; and download it again? If so will it be able to recognize me by my current email and code? Obviously my email and codes won't change; so I must be able to use them if I reload Firefox/ Mozilla as new. This is the third attempt to solve this. The phone is an Android A10E

To my horror I was seeing images on webpages, totally ruining my browsing experience. The main reason I use firefox on Android is because it allows me to turn off media. I don't want to see any of that, almost always entirely irrelevant, distraction. Now I'm going to have to use Samsung internet and continually click reader mode. This is NOT about ad blocking, it is not about saving data. It is about drastically improving the browsing experience. Please reinstate blocking of all images and videos.

Hi

I've already described the issue on the XDA forum, but nothing has been resolved and the problem is still there and I've read about security vulnerabilities in the browser and it could have fallen into this one Party I don't know anymore. but since the version with the ending 17, I don't remember exactly now. It was the first application with a virus, I mean Fennec, downloaded from fdroid. I had the same with google play, now I know that this purple version had nothing for me. Later it went downhill. . Maybe you have an idea, I know that on Reddit someone also complained about the virus. I'm pasting a post from xda, using the phone is a pain terribly. 'Hi XDA

writes with the help of a translator. So I can say something wrong for which I apologize.

I'm having a problem with my phone's security. VirusTootal detects the Trojan for me in applications where the Trojan is not present.

I've tried cleaning my phone.but it doesn't help.

I'm using F-Droid and I'll use this example to tell you what's going on. for some time now I have been updating almost all the new ones that I download zl from there I also download with a Trojan, these applications are clean in other users. And I'm sure they're okay, but not for me. I don't know what's going on, I thought they were false positives but why would I be the only one who has it?

Maybe I'll add pictures, it will explain more. It's just about this one virus, if I go back to an older version I don't have it.


The ones from Google Play have some too. Be it from github or fdroid -It doesn't matter :( Some manage to be clean, but really these are the cases.. Of course, I also downloaded mods. I've always tried to check them through App Manager and VirusTool API. and I might not have checked one either - I don't rule it out

thanks for the reply and tips. health for all' I would like to add that I used this browser because of the add-ons and options.. The photos are just a preview and a fraction of the problem. Nothing helps from resetting, deleting apk by even adb and after updates.
