About half a year ago, there was a problem with parts of webpages being blocked out by rectangles in background colour on some Android devices. As I understand it, that was a problem with hardware optimization on Adreno 308 GPUs, as my phone has. The problem was fixed in 116.

Now, in 121 (and possibly earlier), the problem is back on my phone with this GPU.

E. g. on https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ForgottenTrope, there is a white block in the second paragraph, hiding a part starting with the second half of the second line and two lines more. The text becomes visible line by line when I zoom in.

I found an entry in bugzilla, https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1843749, which seems to pertain to the problem. It was closed with the fix in 116. I guess it needs to be reopened, or a new one referencing this one?

What can I do to set the wheels in motion so the problem will be solved once again?

After installing Firefox for android I noticed that webpages were appearing very washed out, colours faded, blacks rendered as grey etc. It seems similar to this issue https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1329680 Trying the resolution there I noticed that about:config just loads as a blank page.

The issue is dependent on the theme active when tab was created. For example if the browser is in light theme and a tab is created, then you change to dark mode, pages will continue to render vibrant until a new tab is created. Conversely changing to light mode pages will remain faded until a new tab is created.

This behavior is also present if the Theme is set to follow OS if OS dark pages are faded, if OS light pages appear normal.

Recently I noticed that occasoinally if I try to load a new page on a new tab it will not render. Sometimes it helps if I close it from the recent apps and reload Firefox. Last ti.e it didn't helped. This time what was interesting I tried to switch to a not yet loaded page, it was also black. Than I switched to a page with a preloaded preview it flickered for a bit and than the issue resolved itself. The affected device is a newly installed s24 with exynos s2400 so I'm not sure if it's a driver issue or is it a firefox bug. I didn't notice any similar with other apps.

I am using firefox 106.1 on a S22. Since the update whenever i open a website, all i see is black canvas. I have to either open another tab and switch back to the the website for it to render or minimise Firefox, open another app and switch back. Once the website is showing, the session gets normal and i dont see the problem till i exit the browser. This has been happening only after the update. Any clues please how to resolve this?

I have been seeing these annoying colorful dots popping up on websites that ruin the otherwise excellent browsing experience. They sort of move around as I scroll. They aren't limited to specific websites and show up randomly.

When they strike, certain site elements disappear too - like the social sharing badges in the screenshots I've attached.

Thought it was a temporary problem that'd be fixed with an update but it's stuck around for months now.

Anyone else facing this problem?

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?

Hey 👋🏼

I have an issue with the Facebook 'recent post' feed: Only two posts were displayed in the 'recent post' feed and then a spinning loading symbol is at the bottom - then nothing else is loading on my OnePlus 12 and Google Pixel 6, Firefox version 126.0.

In Microsoft Edge it is working, all posts are loaded correctly, so it seems to be a browser issue.

Does anyone have the same problem? Is there a solution?

It's the same problem as here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1420806

Triggered usually by any Website with a (google) map.

   Chrome on Android 13 on the Oukitel RT5 displays these Websites properly.

'Split Screen' functionality & gestures useless. The appear they might work until finger contact with the touchscreen is discontinued, then every attempt rebounds to half the screen still black.

  The only 'way out' of 'split' screen is to exit FF.
There appears no way to 'disable' Android's split-screen functionality

This screen displays brackets in the corners defining the corners of a square in the middle of the screen. You cannot pinch it to make it larger or smaller or smaller. If you scroll up on the windows it closes Mozilla. The only way to get rid of it to use the browser normally is to reboot my Samsung phone.

When I try to go to google on Firefox for android, the website doesn't load and instead all I get is a white, blank page. When I search using google in the address bar, the results show up. But then if I click the google icon to go to the google homepage, I get the blank white page again. What is going on? Also the desktop version of the site works, but the mobile version does not. It just stopped working this morning and nothing on my device had changed. I tried uninstalling firefox multiple times and still every time I redownload firefox, I get the same issue. I've been a longtime user of firefox user and the first time I have had a major issue like this.
