Firefox browser on Android is not opening mail apps when clicking Mailto link. Screen goes blank. No action. Firefox laptop browser works fine, opens mail app when Mailto link is clicked. Picture shows "President" highlighted in orange...this means the link was clicked but the browser didnt execute the send email command, so no mail apps opened. Used Chrome on this link and it opened a window with several mail app options.

HELP! My mobile data usage spiked as of June 20th and has continued at unprecedented levels almost every day since. My historic daily usage for the past many years has been around 4 MB and is now 95MB. and busting through my 2GB/month limit. This is ALL due to Firefox! What happened? Something strange happened on June 19th, when my mobile date usage recorded three separate usage figures instead of the single usage figure for all days previously. June 19th showed 2 usage figures and June 30th showed 3.

Dear Firefox Support Team,

I am writing to seek assistance with a technical issue I've encountered while implementing a backdrop filter and animation on a navigation bar.

To provide some context, I have incorporated a backdrop filter effect on our navigation bar, accompanied by a translateX animation to reposition it smoothly. However, when testing the website in Firefox, I have noticed a noticeable choppiness in the animation performance. This issue persists on both desktop and Android devices.

To help you better understand the problem, I have included a screenshot, so you can see the issue.

I would greatly appreciate any guidance or suggestions you may have on how to address this problem and improve the performance of the backdrop filter and animation in Firefox.

For your convenience, here are the relevant links:

   Live Site URL: https://ohsorrow.me/Space-tourism-website/
   GitHub Repository: https://github.com/OhSorrow/Space-tourism-website

Your expertise and support in resolving this matter would be invaluable to our project. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

Sincerely, Aram

I have the latest version of Android 13 and Firefox up to date on my phone, but there's been some weird behavior when playing videos as of late. Videos refuse to properly go fullscreen now. When I tap the fullscreen button, the video moves to the center of the screen but stays in portrait orientation, which is obviously not what I want. In addition, picture-in-picture is not working at all, and the notification control panel (that lets you pause and play minimized videos from the notification) is not appearing even though notifications are not disabled for Firefox. Videos still play, but almost none of the features for them are working. What is going on? Can anyone help?

Steps: - create an iframe without src - create click event listener on any other element - set iframe src to on click to some url that supports "go to application" e.g. YouTube embed url

Expected: Iframe shows youtube video on element click

Actual: Firefox asks to open a new tab or open an app, and never shows this in iframe

Fix for developers: Recreate the iframe with the src

It only works on ff android, we spent literally hours to catch this bug

I'm a regular user of community.signalusers.org, which is a community forum for users of the Signal messaging platform. The website uses the open-source Discourse application to host the community forum.

Often, however, Firefox fails to load the website. The webpage begins to load, but doesn't move beyond the page you see in the screenshot.

I suspect this has to do with Discourse because another website that uses it (0x00sec.org) also doesn't load.

Both these websites load just fine on Google Chrome. I have attached Screenshots of both. Not sure if there any debug logs or such that I can attach that might be useful here.

I'm accessing the websites from a OnePlus 6T running Android 11. I'm running the latest Firefox beta. This issue is also not 100% reproducible, unfortunately, so it's that much more annoying. It occurs seemingly randomly, and then seems to fix itself at some point, only to break again.

Happy to provide more info, if needed.

While browsing Amazon.com using the past several builds of the Nightly for Android, I get this most annoying bouncing pop-up tip that is a yellowish with black font saying to click on this heart icon to save the product. I have never seen this on any other browser for Android, and never on my Firefox on my laptop or desktop. Is there anyway to get rid of it? I cannot stand this and I have almost thrown my phone because of it many times. I have never thrown a phone before. I cannot explain why, but it pisses me off so very much!

Install often does not work nearly as well as the web page. For example, spelling bee "installed" on my Samsung tab A7, has difficulty accepting taps. Only about 1 in 3 taps will register a letter. On my brand new Pixel 7A, the spelling bee app is not in dark mode, even though it is in the browser. And my entire phone is dark mode. Also, I can't click on the share or overflow menus. Installing the New York times games page has the same problems. And last, on my pixel 7a, the USGS earthquakes app jumps around all over the place making it useless. It would be nice to have both options, "install" and "add to home screen" in case the install fails.

When I am downloading videos, I can't use my keyboard. I can press on a space to type, like the address bar, and it'll pull it up, but then it'll kick me off of the bar and my keyboard will go down immediately. I added a picture for the bar I'm talking about. It kicks me out of anything that I can type in, but only if it's in firefox.

Hi

I've already described the issue on the XDA forum, but nothing has been resolved and the problem is still there and I've read about security vulnerabilities in the browser and it could have fallen into this one Party I don't know anymore. but since the version with the ending 17, I don't remember exactly now. It was the first application with a virus, I mean Fennec, downloaded from fdroid. I had the same with google play, now I know that this purple version had nothing for me. Later it went downhill. . Maybe you have an idea, I know that on Reddit someone also complained about the virus. I'm pasting a post from xda, using the phone is a pain terribly. 'Hi XDA

writes with the help of a translator. So I can say something wrong for which I apologize.

I'm having a problem with my phone's security. VirusTootal detects the Trojan for me in applications where the Trojan is not present.

I've tried cleaning my phone.but it doesn't help.

I'm using F-Droid and I'll use this example to tell you what's going on. for some time now I have been updating almost all the new ones that I download zl from there I also download with a Trojan, these applications are clean in other users. And I'm sure they're okay, but not for me. I don't know what's going on, I thought they were false positives but why would I be the only one who has it?

Maybe I'll add pictures, it will explain more. It's just about this one virus, if I go back to an older version I don't have it.


The ones from Google Play have some too. Be it from github or fdroid -It doesn't matter :( Some manage to be clean, but really these are the cases.. Of course, I also downloaded mods. I've always tried to check them through App Manager and VirusTool API. and I might not have checked one either - I don't rule it out

thanks for the reply and tips. health for all' I would like to add that I used this browser because of the add-ons and options.. The photos are just a preview and a fraction of the problem. Nothing helps from resetting, deleting apk by even adb and after updates.
