Why won't web pages show in dark mode and are still white. So far the only browser I have seen that will also darken a web page is the standard Samsung browser. Love Firefox on my computer but on a tablet the darkening of web pages from the bright white is crucial. How can this be fixed?

The keyboard when using Firefox Android on my Galaxy S24+ suddenly disappears then starts opening and closing and eventually I'm left with the a blank space where the keyboard sits but I can type on the blank area and the keyboard responds with characters. Eventually I have to repeatedly close Firefox Android to get it to operate correctly. Clearing the keyboard app (Samsung) seems to help.

Surely I'm not the only one, when I try to paste in to a field in firefox 122.01 stock android 13, the paste buttons disappears almost immediately after you long press on a text field. Maybe 1 time in 3 it works ok.

Also, does anyone else have an issue with accessing facebook in firefox? Most times you try to type in a text box, it appears under the on-screen keyboard.

I have been using Firefox for Android Beta for several years in various phones. I recently bought a new phone and the browser no longer shows an option to "Quit" when I touch the three dots on the right side of the search bar. As a result, some websites stay connected after the browser is closed. When I restart the browser I am still logged in to the websites. How can I change this? The previous phone was using version 123.0b3. The current phone is using version: 123.0b7 Thanks. Jim Hampton

Since release 114.0 the tabs tray doesn't completely open in horizontal mode on my device(s) (Pixel 2 & Zenfone 9, Android 13). I click the tabs button, then swipe the tray up to open it now. Screenshots show what happens when I click the tabs button. This happens in Firefox and Fennec (F-Droid)

As best I can tell, this started happening after Improve collapse animation of the tabs tray FAB & scrim / 444597e.

Hi Members, I know this question comes up regularly, but I'm asking it again please.

The Firefox mobile browser has the 'Collections' group tab feature, but is there a way of seeing these grouped tabs either at the top or bottom of the browser app page?

Is there plans in the future to instigate the feature, or can it be turned on in the development mode settings?

I found most other mobile browsers have the feature

Thanks

Whenever I start highlighting something in the Firefox app for Android, the highlight segment always snapps to the top of the page. It doesn't matter if I'm using the front or end of the highlighter, unless I am extremely careful and only want to highlight one or two words, it will always jump to the top of the page and highlight everything inbetween.

As you can understand, this is highly frustrating.

This seems to happen regardless of if I have extensions installed or not.

I am using a Pixel 6 Pro phone.

On various sites, e.g. DuckDuckGo search results, parts of the text are missing. Sometimes it's one or more complete lines, sometimes it's part of the line (left, right, middle, upper, lower part). It looks like rectangles in background colour hide the text. Zooming changes the affected zones and generally makes more an more text visible again. Selecting the missing text also makes it visible. This happens on only one device. Complete deinstallation and reinstallation of Firefox for Android didn't help.

See my video below demoing it.

Every time I use the voice input option it does not automatically pop up as it does on Chrome and used to in the past. Also once I'm done with the voice input it and hit the back button, it does not close out and return to keyboard as it used to and does in chrome.

I also tried on Firefox nightly installed on my work profile and it's the same thing. So it seems to be across the board with Firefox.

I recorded a screen cast, the audio in the beginning got cut off it's referring to the voice input box not popping up: https://m.youtube.com/shorts/ygF_MBmnBB4


Anyone else have this issue?

S22. And as I noted it's fine on other browsers only Firefox is doing this.
