I'm getting Secure Connection Failed error on every single website I try to visit. Including sites such as microsoft.com, duckduckgo.com, google.com, etc. (Strangely, mozilla.org works fine.) Try Again never works, and Advanced - Accept risk works sometimes, but not always and if I close Firefox app and re-open it's back to the error page. I can't believe this is a common problem, so there must be something about my phone that's causing this. Android 11. Happens whether or not WiFi is enabled. What could it be?

Websites are fine, but if I open up the address/search bar firefox instantly begins to lag and there is a serious (5 seconds or so) delay between typing and the text appearing.

I have tried disabling search features (search from history, search bookmarks), I have tried disabling add-ons, and I have tried clearing the app cache

Weirdly enough, this problem persists on Firefox Nightly, which I had never downloaded before just now.

Please help.

Hello,

my Firefox on Android running on Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 suddenly stopped working after five years. It does not display the content of the web page even though it loads it completely. I can see only blank page. I concluded that the website is fully loaded because on a “blank” page I can tap on any link that is then loaded, but the website still ends up being completely blank.

I tried the following: - clean firefox cahche - reinstall firefox - reboot the phone several times - install other versions of Firefox (nightly, firefox for Android Beta, Quantum)

Nothing helped.

Chrome browser is running normally.

I haven't changed anything from the settings on my mobile phone, nor have I added any new apps. I've had a problem for the last week since, I guess, since the last update was released.

I'm in a bad situation because Firefox is my favorite browser that I use on five devices connected to the cloud.

P.S.

By searching this forum I found that it was some kind of bug in Firefox, but that was more than two years ago and the problem was marked as fixed.

Please help and advice.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 SM-T530 with Android 5.0.2. I recently downloaded both Firefox and Firefox Focus but I haven´t been able to use neither of them: at first they just crashed, but now the tablet restarts a few seconds after opening and trying to browse anything. Every other app seems to work just fine.

I reinstalled it a few times. I've been able to view "about:crashes" and there were no crashes. What else can I do?

I don't want to use Chrome :( Please help!

Yesterday I tried downloading a document but it failed to do so. Since then, the 'Download failed' message keeps popping up as a warning in Android. I can't acknowledge it by clicking on the message, but I can swipe it away until it comes back within about 2-30 minutes. The message seems to appear only when Firefox is not running in the foreground. There are no tabs open and this download is not available in the Downloads list. I can't clear the downloads list by the way, which is weird.

I already forced a shutdown of the app and cleared the cache. I haven't tried to clear all data as I don't want to set up the app all over again. I'm sure that works but that's not the solution for this.

Like the title says but first some context Since the horrible android browser REDESIGN this has happened, never before, im using the latest version and this has happened with every update since that unneeded and unwanted NEW firefox came out Before i could have up to 60 tabs in normal navigation, and the same amount in private, watch videos and animations at least ten tabs of those on each browsing section, the worst that could happen eas all private tabs would close and that was on rare cases Now it (closing)tends to happen 3 days or so, no matter how many on normal navigation or even private but the recurring thing is, opening videos sometimes work, but sometimes the entire browser crashes and with each crash all normal tabs dissapear as well and since you removed so many options including about:blank and other abouts that j knea how to use to recover pages, now is simply an entire session GONE and this has happenes 3 entire times already, the first time it happened i lost months of browsing i had prior to the dreaded update, they were gone and since, i try to use even less the browser, but is the only one with addon support(same addons i installed firefox years ago on android and guess what, none of them were active when the redesign installed the first time or worked and still the crash happened, so if none of your technicians can provide anything other than the boiler plate reaponse of " please update to the most recent version" (which both already are, firefox and android system) "disable addons" which they were the first crash, and reinstall(which i did when i tried to migrate to opera before i realized i can't install a good adblocker on their android version), then DO NOT BOTHER on answering(also, even webm format as well as many others seem to crash it JUST FINE)

Bonjour, J'avais créé un site perso Il y a plusieurs années avec des applets java (pour faire défiler des photos et images sur le site...). Le site en question est très basique et "bricolé " avec les faibles connaissances que j'avais d'Internet à l'époque..... et que j'ai toujours. Site ==> Landeslocation.pagesperso-orange.fr Aujourd'hui, cela ne fonctionne plus .... message affiché = Pour visualiser les animations, votre navigateur doit être compatible avec les scripts Java(tm). Mon navigateur Internet est Firefox sur Android Y a-t-il un remède pour les visualiser à nouveau ? Quelles sont les alternatives.? Je ne suis ni informaticien, ni geek !! Une solution simple sera très appréciée. Pouvez-vous m'aider ? Cordialement.

Since I installed Firefox on my android phone, I cannot download anything directly from the browser. Anything I try to download returns with the "Download Failed" message, it being a photo, a .zip file, a pdf file or anything in between.

I'm using a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 with Android 7.0. Chrome on the other hand seems to work flawlessly. Firefox is set as the default browser for the device, given all the permissions (storage, camera, microphone, etc) and set to unlimited data usage on both WiFi and mobile data. What is rather peculiar is that my friend's Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x that has firefox installed, downloads any file without error.

Attached are pics showing the issue.

In the Nov 20th and Nov 21st Nightly builds, when I enter a URL in the address bar (either by fully typing it and tapping Enter, or by partially typing it and tapping on one of the autocomplete suggestions), the onscreen keyboard remains in place.

The behaviour in previous builds (and in my view the desired behaviour) was that the onscreen keyboard disappeared in order not to take up screen space that the web page could use.

Hi there I have used Firefox on my android phone for the longest time, and never had an issue. A couple of days ago it crashed immediately on trying to open it. I repeated trying to open it across the course of the day - but continued crashing. I deleted it, and have set to use Chrome. I reinstalled Firefox - same issue. I am not techy-techy (!) but would like to have Firefox back on my phone as all my passwords are there. Any help appreciated Thank you :)

after updating to Firefox android 97.1.0 I face this error. while playing youtube video in full screen, bottom navigation bar is visible making it half baked full screen mode. later found it is same in other video playing websites too... Firefox goes fullscreen mode automatically while navigating in youtube and quite buggy in navigation bar.

I had no issues with previous version. I shouldn't have updated. I received only bugs in this update and no improvements. using Firefox in LG G8X running Android 11.

please fix this bug or share any possible solution available.
