Hi. Around the last few days of July the videos on Youtube started freezing like when they stop playing to load, except it never stops loading and continue the video. When I skip ahead it plays for a few seconds and then stops again. I tried playing videos on other sites, and the same thing happens. The Youtube app works perfectly, and so does the Netflix app and the Chrome app - so I know it's a problem particular to the Firefox app. I removed most of my add-ons to test and it didn't help (the only ones I didn't remove are the uBlock Origin and the Search by Image ones). Also tried uninstalling and installing the app again, but no dice. Any idea how I can fix that?

After selecting Mozilla as my default browser, I tried to perform a search but the only page that loads is the page that wants you to download Mozilla on desktop and android, which I already have. Each time I've tried to do a search with Firefox this is the page that appears, no search results of any kind, but when I switch my search to duckduckgo and perform the search I get results. Can someone please help me understand why I can't perform a search using firefox?? Thank you in advance for your help!

Video playback initially works, until suddenly it doesn't; no new videos will work, and videos that previously played in the same browsing session will stop working. Easy to reproduce on Reddit by browsing any video-heavy subreddit. Leaving a broken video in a tab seems to infect the rest of the browser across websites; if a broken video from site A is open in another tab, videos on site B won't play.

Sometimes quitting and restarting Firefox is enough to temporarily get video playback working again; sometimes I have to manually clear the browser cache; at least once I've had to reboot my phone.

Blank webpages and Sync not working since v114.1.1 update

Hi,

Since update to Firefox for Android v114.1.1 I'm unable to:

  1. Open any webpage, either by typing the URL or selecting something from bookmarks/homepage. Even the tabs which were previously loaded are shown as blank screen
  1. Sync tabs or Access Firefox account. Because I had lots of tabs opened I tried to sync tabs to my desktop Firefox browser using Firefox account, nothing happens when I click on sync

Refer to screenshot attached for build number and other development and release details.

The historic opened tabs are critical for me so I don't have the option to delete the app and install again. Though I tried to clear cache from Android settings but that didn't help either.

About Firefox -> Crashes tab is showing some crash details that is also attached in the post.

I noticed that on a regular basis, Firefox Android slows down dramatically after 1 or 2 hours of browsing. The only fix of the problem is to force stop the browser and launch it again. This happens consistently as well after disabling extentions. Firefox is updated to the latest version, 110.

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!

Happening on all platforms that I checked, from Youtube to Kick and several others. Basically the video just keeps on trying to load forever but never does, same behavior on all sites. Chrome is loading videos fine, other devices with Firefox are also fine.

Been using Firefox on Android for years with no problems. Wondering if this is my problem and I need to troubleshoot or if others are having the same issue, in which case I can just wait for Mozilla to roll up some update fixing it. All I did up to now is disable add-ons but the problem persists. I'll do a fresh install if I really have to but I'll wait for a response here first to make sure. Cheers.

Ever tried to download a file through firefox and then pause it to resume it after sometime and end up having the rest of the file being downloaded in an instant but upon opening realise the file has been corrupted. I am facing this issue like so frequently it has become like a norm that pausing a downloading file will give a corrupted one for sure. And please note that other browsers don't reproduce the issue infact the links are pause supported in all aspects

I search for "desktop" and it returns "Web pages" "page" along with desktop. None of the 81 results answer the query, "what is the desktop site?" in settings. Why? Why return random words? Why don't Boolean operators work? Please tell me the trick to searching, it's becoming a daily routine.

Just a white screen today.

Android has an option to clear a cache, but I don't know whether that is safe. Would prefer not to clear data if possible to avoid.
