I like to read articles in Wikipedia, I could spend hours doing it, but every time I click on a link and then go back to the previous page, the site reloads wherever it feels like and not in the same place that I opened the link. That is very annoying because I've to scroll and re read to see where I was the link that I opened to continue reading. A few years ago I used Chrome and tried Firefox and Wikipedia worked fine so I kept using Firefox.

Is there a way to fix this issue?

Whenever I try to play a GDrive video in desktop mode, the video player doesn't show more control options as they show in desktop or in other browsers if desktop mode is enabled. I'm sending screenshot of a GDrive video in Firefox desktop mode and Opera desktop mode to help you understand the problem better. You will see that opera desktop mode has more video player options as if it's true desktop mode but same isn't the case with firefox as it doesn't show options to control speed of video or change resolution.

Android Facebook Desktop mode won't "show more" to page down

I'm using an Android phone, Android 8.1.0.

Facebook pages besides my home and profile pages in desktop mode allow me to click on "Show more" to page down on a page I'm visiting, but it remains on the first page or goes to the first page.

I can't get past the first page unless I switch off desktop mode. Then it doesn't allow anything but "like" as an interaction with a post.

This might be hardware specific since I just switched back to an older phone from an Android also version 8.1.0. This is a Motorola E5 (XT1920DL) software variant tracfone, kernel (gcc version 4.8) The phone without the issue is an LG L423DL software version L423DL10p.

I don't expect an answer since it's so specific to this odd case. I want you to be aware so testers can poke around.

Thank you very much for your help and hard work. I appreciate you.

Hello,

Video recording of the issue: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1JfPP-asNloE3WJZAAWHsn6pt5HcbYvWI 1. Open a page with reference to some particular part of the page in url (i.e. it looks like <URL>#<tag>). A simple example is to open some Doxygen docs and click on some function in an outline. 2. Scroll away from the place you initially arrived to (i.e. away from the tag position). 3. Scroll down (up) if you previously scrolled up- (down-) wards with respect to the tag location. 4. You are back at the tag (without intent).

I guess this happens due to update of the page (this will trigger any other browser to reset current location to the starting one).

Regards, Ivan

I want to make this my default Browser in my phone, I have a Samsung S20 but it's kind of impossible. Why can't I get Firefox to open a link from a Facebook page in the Facebook app, or an Instagram, Amazon, eBay one? I have the apps installed for a reason. I want to press a Google link and get the browser to open the related app.

When I follow links from outside Firefox, the resulting language in Firefox appears to be Azerbaijani. Note that resetting anything in the browser will be difficult because I don't know Azerbaijani and Google doesn't translate it very well due to the schwa in the alphabet.

Hi there, I'm having issues with the Captcha and reCaptcha boxes--they simply don't show up! I've tried clearing the cache and nothing changed. I currently only have the AdBlocker Ultimate running, is this the problem? I don't know how to get it to show up and I still have a serious vendetta against Chrome so I don't want to use that either. What do I do here? Thanks in advance.

Hi, After the new browser launched, I have had a lot of problems with zooming in and out of websites. When zooming, the whole webpage can scroll all the way to the top or bottom after the release of the fingers. If am am very careful, only lifting one finger at a time, I can avoid this. But this worked perfectly in the previous version, so I hope someone can look at this. This happens to all kinds of webpages. And no, I have not activated the setting to force zoom in all webpages.

Also, when zooming in, waiting a little bit and then zooming out, the portion that was previously out of frame is now just a white plain when zoomed out, until I make some corrections by zooming more.

When zooming, it also breaks websites that uses overlays to show something. For example the slideshow of pictures here: https://www.nrk.no/urix/verden-i-bilder-_-2020-1.14845569?index=0#album-1-15131194

Thank you for all the great work that is put into this browser! :D
