YouTube videos on Firefox Android Stable, Beta, and Nighty, experience significant frame drops when viewing "Stats" both on AVC1 and VP9, and on all resolutions. I checked about:config in both Beta and Nightly and HW acceleration was enabled. This was true for a FRESH install as well. I tried this on other devices and the problem persists. Mull, which is a fork of Fennec, plays the same videos without any problems. Other browsers are also fine.

Tested on Samsung S20 One UI 5.1 (Android 13). Tested on Samsung A13 One UI 5.0 (Android 13). Tested Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact (Android 10). Tested on Sony Xperia XZ1 (Android 9).

In the recent update, there is a new feature which allowed people to view pdf directly in the browser rather than downloading it. Ever since this was implemented, I am not able to download any pdf, instead it keeps opening up the pdf in another tab which is not what I'm trying to do. Is there a way to fix this?

Is there a way to allow popups as a whole or from specific sites? Some support chats open in a separate window as a popup and I cannot view them. I have to use a different browser in that situation and I would rather stick to Firefox

Hi, recently my firefox for android has stopped downloading pdfs from my universitys webpage. It now opens the document as a link in the browser and there is no easy way to download it (or maybe I am blind and just cant find the option, not sure at this point). The links look like:

https://www.ili.universityx.de/goto_elearning_file_1085576_download.html

Is there some "automatically download files" option or similar? In any case, thank you in advance!

When entering a login in a other app, which I have saved in Firefox, I will see the "Unlock Firefox" button appear in my keyboard, with an icon for the fingerprint sensor which is my primary screen lock, but clicking it does nothing. Sometimes this corrects itself for a while and at random times comes back. I have found other users in the Help section having this problem but have found no solution or setting that causes it.

I have followed the directions to change settings for pop-up blocker but when I go to the permissions section of Privacy&Security there is no BLOCK POP-UP WINDOWS with a checked box next to it. So I cannot make exceptions.

I have Firefox for Android on my Samsung tablet version 111. I don't know what I am doing wrong.
