Firefox is failing to display text properly on pages. Paragraphs are getting whited out at seemingly random. If I zoom or highlight the missing part I can usually get it to show up.

I'm using the android mobile version.

I've tried: Clearing the cache Uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox Deleting all add ons Restarting my device Changing font display sizes in Firefox and on my device

It's only Firefox, pages display properly when I try using a different browser. This has been an ongoing problem but its suddenly effecting huge chunks of text on all websites where previously it would only block a word or two on some websites.

(It was even effecting text while trying to type this ticket which is super annoying. )

I use Better Open With on Android to have a choice of browser when opening links from apps. This has never affected how Firefox operates until the recent update.

Now, FF handles all links in any page as external and asks if I want to leave FF (and present the Better Open With options).

This behavior is not seen in any other browsers I have installed (FF Focus, Chrome, Kiwi, Opera). These browsers handle links on open pages correctly and open internally while also recognizing apps that are installed (Home Depot, etc).

Please fix Firefox to use itself for internally opened links!

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.

I was told to post this here so someone could look into it. I use the Dark Reader Addon, which seems to be the only dark mode add-on for Firefox, but lately it is causing issues with simple scripts on websites, namely the "read more" button on pretty much every news article. The button is just completely unresponsive unless I disable Dark Reader. Very frustrating as bright white backgrounds strain the eyes and dark mode really helps.

I posted a review directly on the Dark Reader Addon page as well.

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S22 running Android 13.

It would be nice if dark mode capabilities were standardized and built into the app/websites instead of needing special workarounds like add-ons.

Over the last 3 days, I've been unable to turn off the safe search option using Google as the search engine.

I get a message saying Safe search is locked.

This applies whether I'm signed in to Google or not, but doesn't occur in the chrome app for android.

I tried clearing cache, cookies & data etc to no avail.

So I completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox yesterday which worked fine, however I've noticed the locked safe search filter is back on today.

Any thoughts?

When I'm on any page on a particular website, in this case archiveofourown.org, there are patches of text on the page that do not show up unless highlighted. This problem has recently gotten worse, with more and larger blank spots and even sometimes the text not even showing up when highlighted. I've tried refreshing the page, restarting the browser, switching to the desktop site (same problem there), uninstalling and reinstalling the browser app, and restarting my phone, none of which has had any effect. I haven't had this problem on any other site so far, and I have no problems with the same site using Firefox on my laptop.

Edited to add: I've now also had this problem on THIS site.

To sum it up, I have this issue where opening the app to the homepage and searching something or going to a website will result in the page taking up to 10-15 seconds to fully load. What is weird, though, is that it will not do this if I open another tab and search something. Same thing if I fully close the tab and leave the app, but I go right back into the app to search something, almost like this issue also doesn't happen if I had recently used the app. The second I don't use it for a while, though, the problem happens again. Is there a fix for this? I've tried force stopping the app, clearing the cache, and uninstalling/reinstalling, but it still happens. I checked my internet speed, and everything is fine on there. I also checked how fast other apps load, and they load normally. What is going on? This is very frustrating.

Hello, henever I tap a link that subsequently opens to an app of some sort, say for instance YouTube, and then come back to Firefox, Firefox will become completely unresponsive.

I can get it working again if I gesture into my open apps and "refresh" Firefox by opening it again. This happens frequently and is quite annoying.

Any suggestions or is this a reoccurring issue?

The new search setting on the address bar is great especially after you decided to diminish your app by only showing me 2 history in an update a year ago. Now i can just search my history again with more than 2 results. However, i want it defaulted to search my history. Why is Google the default and how can i change it?
