rampant false positive pull down to refresh gesture

Firefox Nightly 110.0a1 (Build #2015925675), Sony Xperia 1 mk3, 61.2.A.0.382 release-keys Android 13

Been having issues with the refresh gesture, namely it activating when just trying to scroll up the page.

I'm not certain of the proper behaviour, but I've had pull down to refresh initiate with all kinds of downward swipes; fast, slow, short and long; and in various locations on the screen; centre, sides (close enough to also start back gesture), lower third; and even seen it wanting to refresh when simply tapping to stop inertia scroll, as well as when pressing and holding to keep screen alive for seconds before pulling down to return to the top.

Noticing it initiate, then releasing upward to cancel, then repeating the previous downward swipe intermittently triggers it again; sometimes it's gone, sometimes it triggers another once or twice, and one time it just would not stop and I couldn't scroll up the page no matter where on the screen I began to swipe down.

I'm presuming it's only meant to activate in upper third or even quarter, but regardless, this is a relatively recent (several days to a week, idk) issue that I'm dealing with, although it has become rife tonight.

Some websites seem better than others, and I was considering it was a fault of some designs, but alas I couldn't find any spots where I could consistently get it to happen; not even dragging from the top of the screen is working right now, so I have no idea what's going on.

https://ok2fly.com.au/ was a nightmare; tap anywhere to open a pop-up, scroll to bottom, then try to scroll up. I've got a great little screen record to demonstrate how inconsistent it is, if anyone wants.

Lemme know if there's anything else I can do to help diagnose this.

After a variable time-frame, from few minutes to a couple of hours maximum of usage, the app freezes.

It is possible to close it from the drawer and restart it after a while. The problem always recurs.

Sometimes the phone also reboots itself. Approximately once every 5/10 freezes.

The problem does not seems dependent on updates, add-ons or other phone options.

The problem is present since I bought the phone in August. After a few months of tests I'm fairly sure this is a problem related only to the Firefox app.

These "crashes" aren't in the Report, so I'm not sure what to do. I've pressed Quit, I've cleared the Cache (twice), and I've deleted and reinstalled the app. Firefox was working just fine until recently. These crashes only to seemingly happen on YouTube and Tumblr. It closes worse when I have the YouYube in Background Add-on on, but it isn't just because of that. If anyone knows how to fix this, feel free to answer.

Exorbitantly Protracted Load Times

My Specs: Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Model# SM-N96OU1 Android Version 10 Firefox: 107.2.0 (Build #2015918523), 1490acda7+

This past year, whenever the Firefox Android app is initialized (from a wholly dormant state, as opposed to starting from a "running in the background" state) it can take upwards of five minutes until I'm actually able to utilize it. During the interim, the page itself is grayed-out and clicking on any other tabs, bookmarks or urls results in a delayed reaction which happens all at once, five minutes later. I've attempted all manner of updating uninstalling, reinstalling, cache-clearing, and what have you, all of which have had no discernable effect on the aforementioned load time. I even considered the possibility that my swollen downloads folder might be the cause, so I migrated the contents elsewhere, cleared the temp data, etc. and rebooted the device. To no avail, sadly. Is this normal behavior? (the software I mean). I would've posted this question months ago, but a complaint about being forced to wait a few extra moments each day feels a little like WPP.

playing video on YouTube is always choppy and buffering quite a bit and the only thing that my router / modem is connected to only the smart TV by way of hardwired cat6e connection I could understand if this was wirelessly connected but it is hardwired and there is nothing else connected to the router by Wireless and I am getting anywhere between 100 and 155 megabytes per second so I know that the speed is fine and the only thing it does it to is YouTube and even if I adjust the YouTube screen quality from 2180 down to 1440 down to 1080 and then down to 720 P and sometimes it works on 720 but most of the to 480p and then the quality looks like crap and I actually get better quality when I use my cell phone mobile hotspot connected to the smart TV but that's ridiculous in price going way over my data so that's why I got Wi-Fi and it really doesn't matter whether I use the app on the phone of YouTube as a remote for the YouTube on the screen TV screen or whether I use the YouTube app that is embedded in the smart TV either way the connection are very poor and yeah I'm not really sure what to do I had the provider of the Wi-Fi come and do a test and make sure that it wasn't anything to do with the hardware wiring or anything like that and I also when I connect my laptop hardwired to the router everything and anything I stream on the laptop not using Wireless it works perfectly fine same with my cell phone connected by Wireless also works fine it's only seems to be the smart TV and I also tried somebody else's Smart TV see if it was a problem with mine and there's also did it so I know it is not a problem with my stuff

I keep having a problem on when returning to a tab or someone when opening a link the page is simply shown as a black screen. It appears that the page is loaded in the background but literally nothing is displayed on screen.

Refreshing does nothing. Navigating to a different page does nothing (as in the screen is still black, but Firefox goes through the motions of "loading" the page). Searching does the same.

If I close the tan and then immediately hit undo the page will often be displayed.

This has been going on for maybe 2/3 months now and I have updated the application and my phone multiple times; both are up to do.

I can only assume this is a bug at the stage, but if someone has insight into a work around, that would be great.

Example image showing the page being "loaded" but nothing displayed.

I have a local website on my local network. I can access the site from my desktop Firefox browser by entering the IP address - 192.168.25.15. However, the mobile Firefox browser (connected to the same network) on my android phone just displays a Google search page.

I have tried http://192.168.25.15 192.168.25.15 192.168.25.15:80 http://192.168.25.15:80 with the same result - a Google search page.

This is a fresh install of Firefox from Google Play.
