Playing in background no longer works

Until recently (sorry, I don't know which version I upgraded from), it was possible to let media play the background with Firefox for Android. Media would show up on the lock screen and could be played/paused from there when open in the browser. Now, I have found no way of playing media from Firefox without having the window in focus.

I'm wondering if this was an Android change or a Firefox change that broke Android detecting media playing in Firefox, and whether this is/was intended, a known issue, or a bug?

I'm on Android 13 (Oxygen OS 13 on OnePlus Nord 2T), with Firefox version 112.2.0 (release April 24 on the play store).

I'm on version 112.2.0 and I cannot disable the "feature" that haphazardly shoves my history in to groups that have nothing to do with each other but Firefox THINKS are related. The support post I've found discussing this promised there'd be a "disable search groups" option in version 97, but I'm on version 112.2.0, which (for those of you counting) is 5 mainline iterations afterwards. How do I fix this? It's constantly breaking my History.

So, new phone and FF upgraded, now when I download there is no indication that my file is actually downloading, either on the phone status bar or in FF downloads. Is there somewhere I should be looking to see if a file is "currently" downloading?

My Samsung S22 media output tab has recently stopped recognizing when the Firefox browser is playing media (YouTube etc.), causing the pause functionality of earbuds and the ease of pausing without having to open the app to stop working. I'd been using it for months with no issues and I never changed anything. I've tried every setting I could find, clearing the caches of all related apps, and reinstalling them.

Recent update introduced the possibility to view PDF directly in-browser, no need to download them. Unfortunately the "font viewing" is nice only when you just leave the font size setting to 100%. If you either set going size to e.g. 130% or set to adapt the font size to Android setting in Firefox setting, you get a very bad PDF viewing, with mangled fonts and character overlapped each other

I was wondering if there's any way to mute individual tabs in Firefox for android like you can in desktop versions. I can't seem to find an option for our but maybe I'm missing something.

If that's not possible, are there any plans yet to bring this feature to mobile? It's a useful one and one I wish I had a long time ago.
