Firefox sideloaded to Nvidia Shield - Controller doesn't work! (It works fine on Vivaldi)

Hello All, For some unknown reason, the browsers available on Play Store for Nvidia Shield are crap - so far I've not found any that allow me to easily sync bookmarks etc between Shield/PC/Mobile.

I therefore tested and found Opera and Vivaldi sideloaded to my Nvidia Shield TV Pro both worked perfectly.

I wanted to use test Firefox as I was about to use this as my main preferred PC/mobile browser, but first I wanted to check it all worked OK.

I was able to sideload and set up Firefox, but as soon as I open a webpage the Controller stopped working.

How can this be fixed please?

Please don't suggest a browser that's intended for AndroidTV on the Shield Play Store - they are all crap due to the reasons I mentioned, the controller with Right Joysick acting as mouse pounter works perfectly on Opera and Vivaldi, so I don't understand why this it doesn't work on Firefox.

I hope this can be fixed/resolved as I would like to use Firefox as an alternative.

Thanks and regards!

There is an issue with mobile version of Google page, page loads as white page even at freshly installed Firefox nightly without any addons etc. When searching via address bar results are presented normally, but then when click on Google button to go into main page it load white page again. In addition I have checked it in my other device and it was the same behaviour, so it seems that something wrong is with Google itself. When use option to view page in desktop/computer mode page loads normally.

duplicate of /questions/1438225 thread.

Firefox has been a great browser on my new S22 however I have noticed recently that it has been dropping my battery percentage extremely fast, and I notice its lower almost every minute I check. This is confirmed in the battery settings menu where it shows an abnormally high amount of usage, when I mainly use Firefox for general browsing and close background tabs.

google.com not displaying correctly

When I tapped on the firefox widget on my phone this morning, it showed "google.com" in the address bar but the page was blank. I checked this on my wife's phone and my tablet and the exact same thing happens. I tried turning off my two add blockers to see if that would make a difference but it did not. I then uninstalled and reinstalled firefox on my phone from the Google Store and logged back in and it still acted the same way. For fun, I then turned on "Desktop site" in the menu and then my normal google.com page opened up. When I turned off 'desktop site', it went back to a blank screen with the "home" icon, the address bar, number of tabs open box and the 3 dots menu bar showing on top, but nothing else. I then opened my computer and works fine on my desktop. So, not sure what is happening but definitely some problem with "google.com" address on firefox (unless I toggle on "desktop site".) I also cleared my cache (which of course, was completely empty when I deleted and then added on the firefox app at the google store). Seems like might be a problem on your end? Especially since seems to happen on all four android devices that I have. I've also attached screenshots of the two pages I get, the first regular, the second with 'desktop site' toggled on.

Hi!

There has been this weird text overlap whenever I use google image search in Firefox Android, I've tried: - Restarting the app - Reinstalling the app - Updating to the latest version (107.2.0)

But still the issue persists.

This only occurs on google image search in Firefox. This doesn't happen in Chrome and not on other search engines inside Firefox.

Any idea what might happen and how to fix this?
