Ever since the revamp I have a lot of trouble with typing a search phrase in the address bar. After hitting enter, nothing happens. Hitting the magnifying glass: nothing. Selecting an alternate engine: nothing.

I have not noticed a definite pattern, but I want to say that it is more frequently occurring when I'm searching from a previously-opened tab (maybe something to do with trying to search from a tab that never fully opened? Just a guess.) It is not a connection problem- I switch to chrome: no problems. I want to continue using firefox, so I am writing this, but it is annoying enough that I will be forced to uninstall and use another browser if the problem persists. Good luck folks, I support Mozilla's mission and want y'all to continue to succeed

I have a Galaxy Note9 and images downloaded from the Firefox(v80.1.3) app have no date information. This causes them to not show in the gallery app, not until I restart my phone or rename the image in my local storage/downloads folder.

It seems to only affect Firefox as I have tested it on chrome and the Samsung browser and they all work fine. I've even tested different images and sites, all to the same effect. This all appeared after Firefox recently did an update on the app, which is why I suspect its a Firefox issue.

Is there anyway to resolve this issue.

Samsung S9 Android 10 Firefox 80.1.3

The sound quality gets very bad when playing YouTube videos at abnormal playback speeds (e.g. 0.75 or 1.25). This is not a problem using the YouTube app or other browsers such as Samsung browser. It makes videos unwatchable at abnormal playback speeds.

I use Firefox to listen to cricket or music from the BBC whilst I drive. ie https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/live:bbc_6music

However audio only comes through when the browser is the active screen, when its replaced by Maps then music playback stops.

Spotify and other apps do not have this issue.

Unsure if its a setting or a bug that it only plays back when its the active screen. This is Android v10 on a Pixel 4 with Firefox 80.1.3
