Dear support team,

I am experiencing a problem with one specific website, zerohedge.com. Whenever I use the back button to return from an article to the home page, the page appears completely blank, and I am forced to refresh it every time. This is happening on the Android version of Firefox, version 111.1.1 (Build #2015941331) with NoScript and PrivacyBadger add-ons installed.

I have not made any changes to the settings, and this problem has only started occurring about a week ago. I have never observed this behavior before.

Widowed and split screen mode on Huawei P40

Firefox seems to be unable to start in widowed or split screen mode on Huawei P40, EMUI 12. On EMUI 12, apps that support widowed mode are marked with a "window" button in the "recent apps" view. You can see in on screenshot in a yellow circle for Facebook app, but it is absent for Firefox. When I try switching to split screen mode, it shows a message, that Firefox is unable to be run in this mode (sorry, the message is in Japanese). Even if I try using an app Split Screen Shortcut, that seems to have it's own split screen function, separate from the EMUI one, Firefox still launches in fullscreen, and the Shortcut app returns an error.

The thing is, I tried Firefox on Samsung Galaxy A04s (presumably, Android 12?..), and it works without any problems.

It's it a bug and Firefox should support split screen and windowed mode, but doesn't, or does the app lack this support, but Samsung A04s's system just forces it to open in that mode itself?

If it's a bug, I would really appreciate it if you could fix it. This is literally the only downside (for me) this app has.

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).

Hi, recently my firefox for android has stopped downloading pdfs from my universitys webpage. It now opens the document as a link in the browser and there is no easy way to download it (or maybe I am blind and just cant find the option, not sure at this point). The links look like:

https://www.ili.universityx.de/goto_elearning_file_1085576_download.html

Is there some "automatically download files" option or similar? In any case, thank you in advance!

In the recent update, there is a new feature which allowed people to view pdf directly in the browser rather than downloading it. Ever since this was implemented, I am not able to download any pdf, instead it keeps opening up the pdf in another tab which is not what I'm trying to do. Is there a way to fix this?
