Some fields error after backspacing or attempting to fix data. Even when deleting all info in field such as date or even wordpress blog body, text won't input in correct order or at all. If opening same website in Chrome for example, this doesn't happen.

Is this with all websites/pages, some, a few?

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Did this help?

While you are in safe mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

It's the Firefox Nightly app for Android 10. Doesn't happen all the time. I'll try to reset again later, but don't want to and don't think that's it. I think its a development field error. Puffin does it too.

Excellent. I did what you suggested and for now just use a different browser when it happens. Could be the keyboard (Gboard) communication since it's mostly Google stuff on a Nokia 7.2 phone.

Hi

I should be able to help with this.

If you open the Android Settings app (typically a cogwheel icon) select Applications and then find Firefox in the list of installed apps.

Clear the cache (not data!) and do the same for the keyboard app on your device. Then restart your Android device.

I hope that this helps, but if not, please come back here and we can look into a different solution for you
