I just got a new phone (Pixel 7a) and embedded videos have closed captions enabled by default in Firefox. Even if I turn them off while watching one video, they'll be back on the next video. I want them to just be off by default. It's not an Android setting as far as I can tell - I have all live captioning turned off and the video player isn't showing captions when I use Chrome to watch the same videos. Here's a link to a video that has captions on by default when I view it in FF for Android. I've also included a screenshot of the CC controls.

Im using Firefox android on my new pixel 7. I found that the 'add to home screen' option is not available on the ... List. I searched for solution. Someone say click on Install option. But there's no install option either.

The add to home screen is available on my old moto phone

Does anyone have this same issue and have a solution how to fix this? I very much appreciate all your help!

I also posted this under "Tabs."

All of a sudden I started getting a strange download message, a download which didn't show up when I looked for it. Since then, when I press "+ New Tabs," a new tab doesn't open. A new tab opens only when I've clicked on a new link for a topic.

I cleared the cache, restarted my phone twice and un-and re-installed Firefox twice. I was originally synced with Firefox on my other phones, but I don't want to sign in again with that email until this problem is fixed. I haven't opened Firefox again on my previous phones since this all started. I'm going to cry if those versions are "infected" with this problem as well. I just can't erase all the data I've previously accumulated within Firefox on those devices, either.

Now I've looked in Firefox Support for this problem and I've looked again and again for a way to restart in Safe Mode, but I can't find it. Could someone please help me diagnose and fix this issue?

I was told to ask for support here rather than at bugzilla.

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android 10; Mobile; rv:109.0) Gecko/116.0 Firefox/116.0

Steps to reproduce: 1. Install Fennec from F-droid 2. Open browser 3. Observe splash screen 4. The original logo is back

Actual results: 116.2.0 changed the startup splash screen back to the regular logo. I actually rather liked the minimalist splash screen logo we had for a few weeks prior.

Expected results: Is there a flag in the config that I can change to get back the minimalist logo?

Hello,

My firefox has started glitching like crazy. It's like it's trying to constantly resize itself. It has been happening since I opened it on pop-up mode on my Samsung Fold 5, but I've tried reopening it in pop up mode, and all other modes, restarting my device, reinstalling firefox, everything I can think of and it's still doing it. Some of my icons are a mess too. I really don't want to switch to another browser... Anyone have any bright ideas? Adding screenshots to show issue.

Kindest regards,

Matthew Trigg

Hi there,

Is the script in this product bypassing Firefox privacy fences? I do not understand what they promote, but I have not a good feeling after reading their explanation. https://confection.io/scripts/click-engage-xbox-com/.

But I hope Firefox can do something against this possible new threat.

I don't know what the issue is but it's incredibly frustrating when I'm trying to check my numbers and I can't access this site.

What can I do to fix this?

Hi,

Xiaomi 12, when reading a webpage in Firefox scrolling with the finger every 3-4 times the page does not scroll. Instead the address bar at the bottom pops. Lifting the finger and scrolling again makes the page scroll. This problems repeats.

Hello all,

I had been using firefox as the standard browser for years, but since the DNS-over-HTTPS feature I have had trouble with protecting my family on the web via DNS filtering. Currently the only solution that has worked is to use a different browser (the Spin browser, for whoever is interested). I have Firefox blocked using the Android family link feature (and they can't install new apps without permission). Personally, I would love to move everyone back to Firefox, but I can't find a way to do it safely. Is there a way to effectively disable DNS-over-HTTPS such that it can't be changed (kids are pretty quick at figuring out that they can just go to the settings and figuring out that they can turn the feautre back on). A parental control feature would be ideal, so I can just set the DNS-over-HTTPS to use the family DNS filter in a way they can't turn it off. Does anyone have an helpful solution, or is Firefox dead for family protection?

Respectfully, Andrew
