When I want to watch a video on fullscreen on my Samsung tablet, Firefox minimalizes throws me to my homescreen. After I go back to Firefox, the video is choppy and has a low fps. I fix it by forward and rewind the video by clicking on the side of the screen. Very annoying. Browser is up to date, please help

Video playback initially works, until suddenly it doesn't; no new videos will work, and videos that previously played in the same browsing session will stop working. Easy to reproduce on Reddit by browsing any video-heavy subreddit. Leaving a broken video in a tab seems to infect the rest of the browser across websites; if a broken video from site A is open in another tab, videos on site B won't play.

Sometimes quitting and restarting Firefox is enough to temporarily get video playback working again; sometimes I have to manually clear the browser cache; at least once I've had to reboot my phone.

DEVS NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR IGNORANCE AND LACK OF CARING. On mobile app. Videos are choppy even after refreshing, clearing cache and data serve no fix.

Swiping up on video doesn't enter full screen mode.

These are known issues for over 4 years. Questions

1.) Why haven't devs fixes these issue. 2.) Why do devs rely on non-employees to mitigate issues. Instead of fixing issues themselves directly. 3.) No other browsing site has these issues, only FIREFOX. The issues are clearly from poor app design and bad coding, so why do devs not fix it eventhough 1000s of people have these issues? 4.) Despite all the negative reviews, devs turn a blind eye and don't fix any issues.

When playing a video on YouTube the video is choppy and drops around 2/3 of the frames. This happens on every video that I click on.

I have found that if I double tap to jump back 10 seconds in the video it will no longer drop frames and play smoothly, but if I change the playback resolution it returns to being choppy until jumping in the video again.

I am currently running the latest stable download from the play store, and my phone is a OnePlus 8t.

Two questions: 1. I have a 30 mega bite DSL internet connection, but when I watch some videos I get the whirling circle, sometimes another. Also while the video is paused/locked, it continues to run in the background, so I loose the video during that time. A work around used to be, use the forward or back buttons. This brings me to the second question. 2. What happened to the Forward and Back 10 or 15 seconds buttons or circles? They seem to have gone away recently.

Hi,

I face this two issues:

1- if you open a photo inside google search, you can't change the browser to Desktop mod

Here is a video: https://share.stars-host.com/firefox/1.mp4


2- I was registering on one of the sites and i leave for second on another app... When i return i found that all the data that i enter to register was removed because firefox refreshing the page 🥲

Here is example video: https://share.stars-host.com/firefox/2.mp4

The second issue need to be fix because i use another browsers when i want to register for Governmental things, for example, that require me to enter the passport number, which is in the photo gallery...

There is a lot of data that you entered and then it is deleted in an instant when you move to another application for a few seconds (there must be a strong temporary storage space

Best regards, Yahya

Firefox for Android has issues playing back YouTube video through my car stereo and some other types of speakers. Specifically, it works fine with my headphones but not through my car.

Chrome, YouTube app, and other browsers don't have this issue and my car is fine otherwise. I've had this issue on 3 different phones from 2 different manufacturers on multiple versions of Firefox for years and the issue comes and goes with updates but it has been an issue for the past few months now, so I know it's Firefox and not Android or my phones.

When I am watching videos in the firefox app, about 70 percent of the time I go fullscreen to watch the video, it will close the app. Not crash, but leave, like I'm hitting the home button. This has been going on for a long time now. Last time I asked for assistance I got "Have you tried closing your other tabs?". I have 12 tabs open. I never have this issue with any other browser. I have 30 tabs open in chrome, with no issues.

I had trouble with pages not gully loading before and videos not playing and now the videos don't play at all. No matter refreshing, closing Firefox, blocking YouTube shenanigans with ublock (I also get this problem on steam) or unblocking. I would really prefer that I don't have to reinstall AGAIN. I already had to do that not long ago. Can anyone help me with this problem...? Thank you

To be really homest, I never had this kin of problem in chrome, your youtube video player has too many bugs. The issues I've faced are: 1.Whenever I play a video, it is always choppy which is so frustrating. 2.This happened so many times, when I turn switch into full screen mode the whole app crashes.

Please look into this issue, I like the UI and that is the reason why I'm still using mozrilla on my phone.

When I open videos in full screen the notifications bar stays a blank white while in light mode, and grey in dark mode. There is nothing in the bar, it is just a different colour than the video's black bars. I have tried all manner of resetting and toggling with add-ons and setting, within the app and on my phone. Is there any way of getting rid of the bar?

Hello,

I'm facing a severe battery drain issue that occurs with all of the current Firefox versions for Android (Stable, Beta, Nightly). I have noticed that the problem mainly arises when I have played any type of video through the browser, such as a YouTube video or any auto-playing html video through a website. And I don't mean that the battery drain occurs WHILE I have the browser open, I mean in the background, after I have exited Firefox. I have also installed GSAM battery monitor with the necessary ADB battery stats permission given, and it seems that the "Video On" wakelock is always on with Firefox. It's like that the thread that plays the video has not stopped, even if I have force closed Firefox, and killed the video tab. For example, I'm attaching two screenshots from the battery monitor, where I have previously opened Firefox and played a video for like 15 seconds (see the "Audion On"), then immediately closed all the tabs and force closed the application. As you can see, the "Video On" has not stopped, like the "Audio On" wakelock, and continues to count (35 minutes). This may go on forever, such as if I leave the phone at night, I'll wake up the next day with Firefox video wakelock displaying something like 15 hours of playback (something that of course, is not true). The only way to stop the drain, is to restart the phone and not open Firefox.

Though, the issue may not even be related with video playback. I have read in the forums (like here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1432706) that other people are facing this issue as well, and worked around it by not using Firefox as the default browser. I have not tried it but, even if it works, this is not at all convenient. Other posts on reddit that verify the same issue I am having: https://www.reddit.com/r/pixel_phones/comments/18xh7w3/why_is_firefox_using_all_this_battery_i_havent/ https://www.reddit.com/r/zenfone/comments/18zlow0/since_android_14_video_seems_to_be_the_top/ https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/174d13d/firefox_excessive_battery_usage_on_android/

I do not wish to switch to chromium based browsers. Please take a look at the issue and let me know. Thanks a lot.
