Firefox Daylight 88.1.2 (Build #2015806939)

After installing Firefox for Android on my OnePlus 6T and configuring FF would be closed in this manner. 1 More > Quit (which doesn't quit but does close all tabs) 2. Click the Android "Menu" icon (square) and then either

   a. Swipe the Firefox app up to close only Firefox
   b. Click Clear All to close all apps.

This worked fine until last week. Now, it doesn't close. (Note: Apparently FF was updated last week on 4/26/2021 so it may be an issue with the current build. Perhaps only effecting the OnePlus 6T.

Eventually FF will close but, the next time it is opened, it starts over.


What has been tried: Powering off and restarting the phone Restarting the phone Force Stopping Firefox Clearing the Firefox cache Delete Browsing Data (currently set to be deleted on quit but that does not work) A MalwareBytes scan found nothing. Nor has any malware ever been detected on any phone of mine. Searched release notes for known bugs (found zero entries) No option for FF Android on Bugzilla (FF iOS was checked but last entry was over three months ago)

Thanks in advance

As written, with Ff 89 beta for Android, the setting "dom.ipc.processCount" resets itself to 1 every restart.

https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/19385

Can someone please explain me why? It felt much faster before with a setting of 4 or 6 and still feels faster when I set it in about:config for the time not doing a restart...what is going on here?

And why is such a change not being communicated to the community somehow and I/we have to find this out by ourself?

Greets and with best regards, Michael

I thought it was broken in all of android-chromebook, but then I noticed I can long-press to collapse groups in Aggregator. but both in firefox itself and the embedded firefox viewer Aggregator uses, long-press and right-click do nooothing... except on the url bar. :/ this means I can't get contextmenus on links or images. sometimes the punchline to a comic is in that contextmenu.

also I can't install the linux version of firefox on this chromebook, because it's cheap junk with a ridiculously small hard drive, so I'm stuck with just android apps (and only a few of them) until I can get a new one.

I also have the touchpad-scroll-selects-text-instead bug, but I got around that by buying a mouse; the scroll *wheel* works.

I am using Firefox for Android, and it is updated to the latest version. I have had this issue on both a Samsung Galaxy S8 and a Samsung Galaxy S20+.

On the Google search results page, I think the scaling isn't set correctly or something because I am able to scroll horizontally. As far as I know, this issue doesn't happen on other websites. It's troublesome since I will frequently scroll horizontally by accident, when intending to scroll vertically. It is only able to scroll a small amount horizontally (maybe 1/8 the width of the screen to the right).

Anyone else experience this?
