Status and navigation bars disappear after update

Since Firefox for Android updated last night (97.1.0) I now find that the navigation and status bars disappear when I'm looking at a webpage for more than a few seconds. This makes a very difficult user experience. I've tried other apps but they don't do this, which makes me think that it is a Firefox problem. Does anyone know how to make the bars stick?

Note: just in case I don't have the correct terminology for the bars, by status bar I mean the one at the top of my phone screen that shows me the time, battery percentage, notifications, etc; and by navigation bar I mean the one at the bottom of my phone screen that has the back button, home button, and app switcher. The Firefox toolbar (URL, settings menu, etc) is fine.

I downloaded some Mozilla apps last week, apps that control mainly privacy plus Dark Screen. The next day I attempted to log in to my bank account and I couldn't. I got a message saying that Java Script was needed. This is very confusing because I did not knowingly disable Java script. I tried my other bank and got same message. I tried to log in using my Duck Duck Go browser and everything worked as it should. So how did this happen? I'm trying to figure out your instructions on how to enable Java script again, but can't find the menu for my Firefox browser. Sorry but I'm not tech savvy!

Being a decade user of Firefox I must say that I started to hate it because the last editions hide the choice for enabling or disabling javascript. The stupid comand "about:config" leads nowhere and all previous answers are absurd. Why Mozilla decided to hide the option " turn on / turn off" javascript? It turned a previously great navigator into a stupid user unfriendly useless software. I use the internet for over 40 years and Firefox has always been my favourite. What obscure financial reasons made developers decide to hide the simple option of earlier editions? Please put back the "on/off" option for javascript. Untill then I'll use Chrome.

Hello, i tried installing some add-ons on the new browser but the installation was blocked citing incompatibility issues . I recently used these add-ons on the previous version of firefox but now you only allow certain extensions to be installed and blacklisting others without firefox digital signatures. I understand that there might be a security risk but you are limiting the advanced users on this. Allow modification of addons by the user without any kind of restrictions . Also , some extensions have been declared incompatible with firefox android yet they were very compatible with the previous versions. The about:config menu is no longer available and i constantly use it for my manual! proxy configurations and disabling<media.peerconnection.enabled> which should be togged fo <false> . It exposes the internet default IP address even when conncted to a vpn . I used to have more control on these features but now everything is limited. Please make an effort of including more options about the browser as it was the case before in your next update. Very important. I need that because thats why i love and use Firefox. Thank you.

With this new version of Firefox for android I am unable to view a downloaded pdf file. With the old version the pdf file was passed to a pdf reader, in my case XOXO, but this is not the case with this version. I've searched for an add on but there isn't one. This is disappointing, if I cannot read a pdf in the android browser then there's little point in using it.
