It seems Firefox preview has half baked Pointer lock / Mouse capture as in the web page can register mouse moment however the browser seems incapable of locking the mouse. The result is unusable page. To test try with a pc VS Android phone with bluetooth mouse or wired mouse.

Test page: https://mdn.github.io/dom-examples/pointer-lock/ https://phoboslab.org/xibalba/ (desktop mode) http://media.tojicode.com/q3bsp/

Documentation: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Pointer_Lock_API https://developer.android.com/training/gestures/movement#pointer-capture

Is there a way? Am I doing something wrong? Or is it not fully implemented?

PS. Im using this on a Samsung Dex, where the primary way if controlling anything is with Mouse.

Hi

Firefox Preview has been designed and tested for use on touchscreen devices, rather than those with a keyboard and mouse. There may be improved compatiability in a future release, but I do not know when that is due to be looked at.
