Noticed my phone having terrible battery life, from battery usage you can see that Firefox is highly likely one of the main culprits. I have observed the same over a few days on the last two Firefox builds. It seems that it's not respecting the "Restricted" battery usage in Android (or Android is not restricting it, I have no idea), but you can see today's battery usage linked here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/pMByjqq6Q5GigcQu8

How does one set Firefox to open a link in a new tab?

Frinstance...

Look at a list of search results, tap on a link.

I want to view the linked page in a new tab. Not the page of search results.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I've recently began to experience some pretty nasty behavior of firefox on android. After some time of using the browser (with closing the app in between), The screen starts to flicker (on every website) and the app becomes unusable. I have to force stop the app for it to work for a while again, until it starts flickering again. I have few theories myself (Something wrong with the web-engine, or garbage collector perhaps?) but I don't know how true they are. I did recently update to Android 14 and didn't see this behavior beforehand. I can't show a demonstration because I can't attach video's. Can I post a link to a video?

Hello.

I recently started using Firefox browser on Android mobile OS, and am having trouble with Korean letter URLs.

On Firefox, unlike Chrome or built-in Samsung internet browser, URLs containing Hangul are displayed ASCII code on every page.

For example, this is how the URL of '모질라 파이어폭스' article on korean wikipedia is displayed.

https://ko.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/%EB%AA%A8%EC%A7%88%EB%9D%BC_%ED%8C%8C%EC%9D%B4%EC%96%B4%ED%8F%AD%EC%8A%A4

As you can see, it is totally a mess and very uncomfortable when it comes to sharing or modifing an URL.

I tried turning off HTTPS-Only Mode in settings however it didn't work.

My idea is that changing the browser's encoding setting from ASCII to UTF-8 will help, but I can't find any option for it.

Is there any solution or add-on to solve this problem?

Sorry if my English reads awkward. But I believe that you could understand my situation.

The power draw can be heinous. In 37 minutes of use so far for this full charging cycle, it has used 5 times the power (measured by Android's battery page) as RedReader has in its roughly 2.5 hours. Is there a way that can be brought to heel a bit?

For awhile now since I last updated the android app it's started freezing after awhile when I try to open a new tab or type in the address bar. Sometimes it looks like it's opening a new tab but it's just a duplicate of a different tab then it freezes. Restarting the app makes it work again but it won't remember the last thing I was doing and the history shows up entirely blank. Even closing the app before it freezes it won't remember what I just had open

Im on 120.1.1 (Build #2015990546) with a Samsung s22 ultra. While browsing/searching I had the app freeze on me. No crash report generated. I had it even freeze on the support website once I think. The web page doesn't load all the way and the app is unresponsive. I back out using the left bottom button and swipe to close it. When I open it back up it is loads in slow but then works.

Hi,

I have been watching YouTube videos on firefox android and have been clicking ful screen and landscape has been fine. Then over night a few days ago, it stopped. When I turn the phone to landscape, the video sound is playing but the video is blank, with no picture. It is fine in normal portrait just not when I click full screen when it was working.

I've cleared the cache and history, I've even unistalled Firefox and reinstalled it twice, once from the play store and once as the apk but to no avail. I have also disabled adons, tried the picture to picture, and autoplay but nothing works.

Any help to rectify and return my viewing would be appreciated.

I have a Xiaomi phone with resolution 2400x1080 use Firefox on it. And I have annoying issue with YouTube and other video players. Is there is a way how can I hide notch in full-screen video mode? I can do it in setting, but it works only for vertical orientation. Please look at my attached images to understand what I meant.

Have installed Firefox on Windown 11 PC , Android mobile and Android tablet. Bookmarks seem to sync across devices but i like the speed dial feature as used on Vivaldi. This only appears to work on desktop as an add on but doesnt sync to the Android devices. I then discovered Collections on my Android phone which seemed ideal. Set it up and then found it didnt sync to any of the other devices. Can this be done. If not going back to Vivaldi. Very dissapointed as it seems to be a really fast browser.
