This screen displays brackets in the corners defining the corners of a square in the middle of the screen. You cannot pinch it to make it larger or smaller or smaller. If you scroll up on the windows it closes Mozilla. The only way to get rid of it to use the browser normally is to reboot my Samsung phone.

This question was asked by someone else in November 2023 but never sign answer. When I click on a link to an address Mozilla should open my Google maps and put that address in automatically. Instead it goes to the Play store to download Google but since I already have it installed I click continue and it opens up Google maps but no address. How do I fix this or is this a glitch in Mozilla?

I use the mobile version of Mozilla firefox and it choose to "remove" the open in other app feature for certain apps.

If I open youtube.com mozilla would ask to "open in other app" as an option instead of just opening it in the browser, youtube, twitter/X, reddit, etc. are fine, but for certain apps such as Pixiv and Patreon the option just dissapeared entirely, not even in the tripple dots at the bottom right does this option appear, can anyone help?

1st, I'm old, cant code, tho wish I cld, so am naive and tho being online for over 20 years, just dont get any tech etc on how any of it works (damn it).

My issue, is th incompatibility across 1st O/S's, due to competition but mainly bcoz of the lack of ethics inherant in capitalism.

As my meme has; "cRapitalism - guaranteed to make a$$holes of otherwise good folks!"

But, "that's evolution fo' yo'!

Point is, th web is still a baby, so has a way to go b4 it, thus all operators and users, "evolve" to agreed bases, O/S's, layout standards for all the sites, platforms, apps, etc.

Eg1; Social media platforms? All in their own anazing ways, are fabulous.

But (yeah, an "old Luddite's" problem) skipping from 1 to another, and another, each w its great but own layout, is longterm, long-game, all up v innefficient.

So, IMCO, there needs ASAP to be a meet of both developers AND govt specialists, to begin a project to design GLOBALLY-acceptable layouts etc, for maximum user-friendliness, and other vital factors in sites' designs.

I write this on my phone, bcoz sPOOks have hackrashed every lap and desk top computer, bcoz of my REALPolitiks, so that'll do from me.

Sayin', "sameness" of all parts for online use, like the accepted "QWERTY" keyboard layout, as with Post Offices, I guess, all requiring postage stamps in the dame corner of envelopes, globally, etc, baby internet needs to gwow upsies, above the usually excellent egotrips of each web layout etc., to maximize humanity's communications systems.

Cheers.

But, maybe ending cRapitalism would improve human intelligence faster, so we dont go extinct fighting for our own egotrips to rule?

Background battery drain issues

I have noticed that for the past several months Firefox for Android begins draining my battery after being installed for around 2 weeks. I'm using a Google Pixel 7 (128GB) running Android 14 (AP1A.240405.002) in the UK.

At first, I thought this was being caused by an add-on, so I reinstalled without add-ons and slowly started enabling them day by day until I caught the culprit (which if I recall correctly was Dark Reader). However, even after I disabled the Dark Reader add-on the problem persisted, and no matter how many times I uninstalled and reinstalled the app, the background battery drain issues would eventually come back after ~2 weeks of being installed.

At present I have only three add-ons enabled in the browser: ClearURLs, Decentraleyes, and uBlock Origin. I have used these add-ons in the browser for years without any issues.

It's now got the point where I am so fed up with this issue and the need to constantly reinstall that I will be using a different browser for the time being until this is fixed. I really want to use Firefox as I use it on all my other devices, but this is too much of an issue for me to ignore.

I've included screenshots of my phone's battery consumption whilst I'm asleep, and whilst I'm watching Youtube on my TV over lunch. Both of these are times I'm not using Firefox.

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
