I'm having an issue with Firefox on Android. On certain websites (e.g., Yahoo News, Calscape.org, Google search results--with Goggle Search Fixer add-on enabled), I can scroll down the page without issue, but scrolling slowly back up toward the top of the page with downward drags of my finger is only responsive half of the time. That is, I can only scroll back up with every-other downward swipe/drag of my finger. This odd behavior does not happen with other mobile browsers (I'm on Android 13 and using a Galaxy A53 5G). Any suggestions?

I normally have Dark Mode always enabled.

This week it's constantly switching to "Follow Device Theme" which then makes it the Light theme.

Interestingly, my phone's theme is also set to Dark mode so the Follow setting doesn't appear to work.

Thanks!

Before Firefox for Android v100 it was possible to show only pinned sites in the top sites section in the home screen. Now alongside my pinned sites (currently 3) there are 2 rows of 4 sites and 2 pages. All these other sites are pages related to my work, full of test URLs, 500 or 404 pages... and so on. How do I revert it to the old behavior?

I have the problem that Firefox does not correctly recognize when I want to scroll up on a web page. This often causes me to accidentally refresh the page. Usually this should only happen when I'm already at the top of the website and then swipe down again and not in the middle of the website. I have even tried Firefox Nightly and Klar, but the issue occurs with every browser. Is there perhaps some trick or hidden setting that causes the browser to scroll reasonably again instead of constantly refreshing the website?

I am using the video background fix addon but whenever i minimize firefox, it will play the current video untill the end and will not autoplay the next one. I have to bring forefox to the screen again and then it starts the video.

On my much older Android device, i am using the same setup and have no problem with autoplaying the next video, even when firefox is minimized. Any suggestions?

I remember sites with related terms not always being grouped up not too long ago. The change isn't bad but would like to know how to disable it. The main issue being ever since this change was implemented, it breaks some functionality. It keeps you from being able to look through the rest of your history until you delete the group. Either it prevents you from continuing to scroll down. Or when you do keep scrolling, it keeps looping the sites already shown.

Until recently (sorry, I don't know which version I upgraded from), it was possible to let media play the background with Firefox for Android. Media would show up on the lock screen and could be played/paused from there when open in the browser. Now, I have found no way of playing media from Firefox without having the window in focus.

I'm wondering if this was an Android change or a Firefox change that broke Android detecting media playing in Firefox, and whether this is/was intended, a known issue, or a bug?

I'm on Android 13 (Oxygen OS 13 on OnePlus Nord 2T), with Firefox version 112.2.0 (release April 24 on the play store).

Whenever I tap a button on any website that is supposed to start uploading process nothing happens. I don't get to see a file browser with which I am supposed to pick a file or anything else, only a slight website UI animation of the button responding to my tap if the website/button has one.

This has been the case from the moment I installed Firefox. It is the same in both regular and private browsing. I have looked at Firefox and Android app permission settings and haven't found anything and allowed everything relevant for Firefox to use (access to files, internet). I have no problem downloading files. I am using MIUI 13 Global.

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.

Help would be appreciated because it is very annoying
