Apologies in advance in case this post comes out as a mess!

Finally, Firefox does not require camera access for me to browse the file system to choose a screenshot image to upload at this support forum. So why block image attachment upload until the user grants Firefox access to the device's camera? Not cool!

MANY Websites refuse to adjust to mobile screen size, including Google Mail. Text is not wrapped or shrunk to screen width.

Your "help fix" suggestion turn on and off desktop mode doesn't work.

It was working in previous version before updating to latest Firefox build earlier this week.

The latest stable Android release running on Android 11 with latest updates: >> 98.2.0 (Build #2015868577), 2b529a583+ AC: 98.0.12, 9ad94b2a33 GV: 98.0.1-20220313140707 AS: 91.0.1 << Example Screen shot attached from Google Mail.

On my new Samsung S21 cellphone many (but not all) websites shows as if "Desktop site=on" radiobutton was selected in the Firefox for Android settings, even if it isn't. This happens for e.g. "di.se" and "expressen.se". But on my old Samsung S10e these websites still works fine (I have the latest Firefox version 94.1.2 installed on both cellphones).

I tried to remove and reinstall Firefox on the S21 but that didn't fix the problem. (It works fine with Chrome on both cellphones, so it's probably not a website issue).

How to stop Firefox mobile form refreshing every time I leave the app and come back?

How do I stop Firefox mobile from refreshing every time I leave the app and come back? This wouldn't be such a big issue expect for the fact that I use bitwarden as my password manager. So every time I want to enter my password bitwarden leaves Firefox so I can unlock my vault. Then when I re-enter Firefox Bitwarden is unable to fill in the username and password cause the page is refreshing. Sometimes it even takes me out of the password page because the login screen for the site is a pop-up. Not a separate window.

This also becomes super annoying when filling out any forms and I need to grab info from another app cause a lot of time on form pages when you refresh the page the form gets cleared. It's at it's worst if I have to leave Firefox to copy and paste multiple items because then I copy one item, re enter Firefox paste, leave Firefox to copy the next item, re enter Firefox and the thing I pasted before is gone because the page refreshed! STOP REFRESHING THE PAGE EVERY TIME I LEAVE AND RENTER THE APP!!! It doesn't matter if I leave for mear seconds or used the recent app section to quickly switch between Firefox and another app.

I am on a Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.

Hey all, I am "migrating" to Firefox right now. However, i find the google search results a bit odd, as the firefox does not show up the Google Maps results e.g. Opening times as a dropdown. Any idea how to fix that in firefox ? I use that quite often to be honest. Attached a screenshot from Firefox (android) search result and Brave in that example.

Thanks!

Starting this morning I have been blocked from all Reddit pages. There's no error message, just the one word “Blocked" in the upper left corner.

I've"quit" the browser and reopened, did not fix the problem. Turning off Tracking and U-origin Ad Block also didn't help.

Curiously I can still access Reddit using my tablet, which is running the same latest build of Firefox and using the same wifi network.

I've sporadically experienced being unable to access other mainstream websites, though I can't remember which ones right now.

Any suggestions? Thanks
