I use an old android tablet for work on the internet. Don't know why, but I feel if something happens I won't lose. It is an android 4.2.2 type device. Firefox browser won't play videos. This is my only complaint. I need this option so I can test website programming code. v68.9.0 is the version I have on the tablet. What is the max version I can put on the tablet without losing performance and gain video play.

When visiting some Chinese commercial websites with firefox, I often encounter errors as shown in the screenshot. But other browers like Chrome have no such problem. I know this is because the websites didn't obey the protocol, but does anybody know how to resolve this problem?

Some example webpages are listed below: https://www.jianshu.com/p/1e09fbcfe21b https://m.bilibili.com/video/av9833732 Any link in this page: https://m.huxiu.com/moment/1721.html

I know the reason: more and more Chinese business websites are trying forcing users to install and visit their websites via their own apps rather than universal brower, so that they can raise their visiting flow, and then they can attract more investors.

Now you have finally made me consider leaving Mozilla. You have tried again and again over the past years and now it is time for me to make a decision. The new Android Firefox is no longer usable for me due to decisions I can't understand - it looks to me like you are throwing your loyal user base overboard just to get more/new/other/better users? I don't think it will work that way! At least it won't work that way for me.

For now, I'm back to Firefox 68.11, the latest usable Firefox. The only thing I want to know right now is whether you plan to annoy your satisfied users even more and scare them away in favor of users you don't have yet, so I can decide whether I should wait a little longer so you can fix things, or whether I'd better find an alternative that works for me right away - this will apply to all my systems and all systems I support.

Hello. I use sync on two devices only, a PC and an android device. Today it has ceased to sync data to and from the android device. It just says "Last sync: never" even after clicking the sync button. The only thing I found online was to not have over 5000 bookmarks (which I don't) and to update Firefox. (I'm on the latest version)

So far I've tried clearing the data of the app, which didn't work so I tried reinstalling it entirely. That also didn't help. I've removed all duplicate devices from my account settings too.

Not sure what more I can do

EDIT:

Fixed itself of course only after I post here. I waited a few hours too..

I'm really upset! The new v79 has half the features and sync wasn't running: always shows "last sync on 1970" and didn't let me select what to sync. I cleared the cache, not solved... I cleared all my data, reconfigured, but still no sync! So I removed the app and manually installed the old one. Guess what? It still doesn't sync!!! Now I'm left with the Firefox I know and love but I can't use it because I have NO credentials and no bookmarks... I would like to kick someone...
