I have firefox for android, and I have ublock origin, which is great.

However, firefox seems to refresh constantly- even if I minimize it than return instantly- it automatically goes into a refresh mode, it refreshes randomly while scrolling- I wish I coudl completely turn this "feature" off across all browsers.

I cannot state how many times I have lost VITAL data from this annoying random refreshing.

It should be an option to completely disable refreshing of ANY kind, rather than forcing it down our throats, and losing time, and data. If I want to see new content I will refresh it myself/ re enable the option. I was hoping this ridiculous "feature" would be phased out when humanity pulled its head out, but apparently- it's gotten even worse, now.

I'm not sure why, sometimes the status bar clock and stuff do hide, but I just can't seem to figure out how to get them to hide every time, and they usually don't. I've already tried disabling picture in picture for the app but that isn't noticeably helping. Full screen video is supposed to hide those, right? What are the reasons it wouldn't?

Hi there, Looking at pcapdroid and adguard DNS, Firefox on my android phone is constantly connecting to xxxxx.ingest.sentry.io.

Why does it do this? I get sentry is a crash reporting tool(?) however I have everything diagnostic wise turned off. I don't really mind but not having an option to disable this is a bit strange. Also why does it need to connect so often, even without a crash or error? I have over 50 attempts/connections logged in last 3 hours alone.

I was a bit surprised that I found some mozilla kraken benchmark 1.1 results that were somewhat better than mine (despite being done on the same mobile SoC as mine)

I then read closely that the better score was made on the Chrome Mobile browser.

I then installed Chrome on my mobile and also suddenly got results which average were about 25 - 28 % better than when I ran Kraken in Firefox Is that to be expected? Or can I do something to make my firefox just as fast?

Chrome = ver. 123.0 Firefox = ver. 125.0

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?

Hi I've been having an issue with adding bookmarks lately. I have a lot of Bookmarks as such I use a lot of bookmark folders, often multiple folders within one another.

The issue I have is that when I add a new bookmark on mobile Firefox displays all Bookmark folders all at once leading to a lot of scrolling in order to get to a specific folder. This can lead me to several minutes of searching as I try to find a specific folder.

This could be solved by implementing a drop down box to hide folders within folders.

Anyhelp is appreciated.

On the Firefox Android app, after closing few tabs, exiting the application and re-entering the application, the closed tabs reappears as if they weren't closed at all. I found this is a well known bug and there are few open threads on bugzilla on this topic. Someone said that's related to a corruption of the closed tabs' json file.

PS. It's difficult to share a screenshot, probably a video is more explanatory

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?

My computer restated itself with an update. Now Firefox and all my bookmarks and saved log in info is gone. I normally can solve this by simply logging in and syncing from my phone. Firefox will not open a log in page from any of the icons on any Firefox page. I can log in using Chrome but of course sync from there is not possible. I can log in on my phone also. The problem is either my Mac settings or the Firefox settings on that computer. I have searched FAQ etc. No clear solutions can be found.
