YouTube soft-crashes when going full screen sideways

Steps to reproduce : - go to YouTube - open a video - press the full screen button or tilt the phone sideways to trigger full screen - Firefox crashes and forces back to home screen - if opening Firefox again only half of the video component shows as in portrait mode, rest is black screen - if attempting to go side/full screen does properly show the video, but going back again to normal screen still shows the half black screen

I can reproduce this with a almost 100% rate, it only fixes itself by restarting Firefox, where it will work until phone is put to sleep mode.

I tried reinstalling Firefox from scratch, as well as deleting my browser cache and it didn't fix.

Hello,

Firefox 120 is freezing my Android 11 phone when I start typing on the search bar (weirdly it start to happens when a space is inserted). It freezes so hard that pretty much it takes 30-min to 1 hour for the phone to restart or the battery to drain.

Reverting to 119.1.1 solves the problem immediately.

My guess would be that maybe the search bar or the suggestion related code introduced something weird, as I do have a lot of bookmarks. Nevertheless, it's definitely a new issue (been using Firefox mobile since first day around 2010) and introduced in 120.0.

Since the phone is hard freezing, I can't even connect in ADB and try to see any message hinting at what's wrong. If there's a crash trace maybe some info could be dug there.

Thanks in advance for the help!

As web developer I often test changes in mobile device as well as on desktop. I have no problem refreshing desktop but seems the Android version is not playing nice. I can make a change that appears fine in desktop.

The Android refresh is not doing what it is supposed to do and does not refresh to show my changes.

Is there a setting I am missing to force refresh on mobile?

Hello,

I am getting a frequent freeze in the Android app and then shortly after a crash. Info: - happens on FF, FF Beta, and FF Nightly,and reinstall/phone reset didn't fix. - Samsung Galaxy SM-G965U running Android 10. - every error starts with java.lang.OutofMemoryError. - it never happens just on startup, just on auto fill, or some of the similar crash reports I've seen around here. - it does appear to be site-specific, but sometimes the site works and sometimes it does not: if I close the last tab after a crash, it will usually work for awhile. - Sync and disabling Add-ons doesnt fix it, although perhaps its worse with uBlock Origin enabled (not conclusively)

Thanks for any suggestions.

I have the problem that Firefox does not correctly recognize when I want to scroll up on a web page. This often causes me to accidentally refresh the page. Usually this should only happen when I'm already at the top of the website and then swipe down again and not in the middle of the website. I have even tried Firefox Nightly and Klar, but the issue occurs with every browser. Is there perhaps some trick or hidden setting that causes the browser to scroll reasonably again instead of constantly refreshing the website?

Firefox on my android phone (OnePlus Nord N200) won't load any web pages and there is a red line across the lock icon in the address. This is happening to any web page I try to open. I am not getting any error messages and the browser home screen shows my open tabs. When I click on them (or if I do a new search) all I get is a blank page and the address with the red line across the lock. No problem with Chrome, nor with Firefox on other mobile devices.

Wasm built with Emscripten >2.0 is 8 times slower to compile than WASM built with Emscripten 1.40.1 on Android phones RAM <=6GB

with firefox defaut profile, WebAssembly.compile time of Wasm built with Emscripten >2.0 is 8,9s,while WASM built with Emscripten 1.40.1 is 1,2s, tested on Xiaomi K30(Ram= 6GB, 8 cores), firefox 96 beta. Can someone help on that? I set javascript.options.wasm_optimizingjit false and compile time for both the wasms is about 140ms compared to 100ms for Chromium 94. Refer to * When wasm bytecode arrives, we choose the compilation strategy based on * switches and on aspects of the code and the hardware. If switches allow * tiered compilation to happen (the normal case), the following logic applies. * * If the code is sufficiently large that tiered compilation would be beneficial * but not so large that it might blow our compiled code budget and make * compilation fail, we choose tiered compilation. Otherwise we go straight to * optimized code. it seems with default profile, the compile goes to "optimized code". is this reasonable? Then I observed the CPU used of wasm (Emscripten >2.0) compilation is 48%, while wasm (Emscripten 1.40.1) compilation is 100%, I guess wasm (Emscripten >2.0) compilation maybe only use one core. I don't which is the main cause? PS: SAMSUNG A51 (RAM 4G) has the same performance, but with some mobile phone >=8G, the compile time is about 100ms.

Every time I'm scrolling through Google Images or any type of slideshow that requires swiping, it will only swipe half way and then remain on the previous image. This happens way too often. I have to consciously swipe from the edge of the screen to the edge of the other side, to make it work, and sometimes that doesn't even work. Any chance this can be fixed in an update, soon? It is infuriating. Thank you.
