Until recently (sorry, I don't know which version I upgraded from), it was possible to let media play the background with Firefox for Android. Media would show up on the lock screen and could be played/paused from there when open in the browser. Now, I have found no way of playing media from Firefox without having the window in focus.

I'm wondering if this was an Android change or a Firefox change that broke Android detecting media playing in Firefox, and whether this is/was intended, a known issue, or a bug?

I'm on Android 13 (Oxygen OS 13 on OnePlus Nord 2T), with Firefox version 112.2.0 (release April 24 on the play store).

Until recently (sorry, I don't know which version I upgraded from), entering fullscreen mode when playing back video (such as YouTube) would automatically force landscape mode, even with auto-rotation disabled. Now, there seems to be no way for me to enter landscape mode while playing back a video, without enabling auto-rotation (which I otherwise always keep disabled).

I realize that the desired behavior here can be subjective, but at least it would be nice if there is/would be a way of configuring this behavior?

From version 110 and up, there are websites where the autofill no longer works. The option to select your saved users & PWs comes up but upon selecting one, nothing gets filled. On other websites the autofill works as intended. Going to the real debrid website is the one I can accurately reproduce the issues on. With version 109 and below, the autofill works. Is there a proper work around besides having to go into the settings, finding out the password and inputting it manually?

I have no idea what is happening... But after restarting, clearing my cache, making sure I have data and it is working for other apps... Still no results.

No matter what, whether I try to type in a URL, click on a link in the google app, or refresh a page I already have open, the app doesn't even attempt to load a page or throw up an error. Just a blank background, no loading bar, no error messages, and no redirects...

Any progress with this?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1384776

I've encountered a problem where the defaults appear to have changed.

The ability to adjust margins would help triage the problem.

Evidentially, about:config isn't supported on Android either.

Thanks in advance.

In the recent update, there is a new feature which allowed people to view pdf directly in the browser rather than downloading it. Ever since this was implemented, I am not able to download any pdf, instead it keeps opening up the pdf in another tab which is not what I'm trying to do. Is there a way to fix this?

Steps to reproduce problem. 1. Navigate to YouTube with Firefox for Android. 2. Open page of any video which has comments. 3. Switch webpage display mode to 'version for PC'. 4. Now the page layout top-to-bottom should be like: - player with main video - list of videos that may interest you - comments section 5. Expected behavior: load comments section below list of recommended videos, like Chromium based browsers do. 6. Actual behavior: Firefox fails to load comments section, perhaps some script doesn't fire up.

Hello,

I created an account in Firefox with my old e-mail; nyayesh_abdollahi@fripost.org.

However, I have since deleted that e-mail and also forgotten the login password for that Firefox-account; therefore, I can't login to it albeit it exists.

I'm not sure how this works but I do believe the best way to resolve the matter is through the deletion of the aforementioned account.

Kindly, Nyayesh Abdollahi

Is there a way to force "dark mode" for websites on mobile WITHOUT using an extension like Dark Reader?

I am comparing this to coming from Brave, where I am using their "experimental" Night Mode settings (which works great). For the desktop browser, I've gone to Manage Colors and swapped text/background white/black to make most websites appear as if they have a dark mode, but that option doesn't seem to exist on mobile.

I've attached 4 images that show the differences across the two browsers on mobile. Even Google's own Dark Theme doesn't seem accessible through whatever method FireFox uses, so I can't even use that dark theme without an extension at the moment.

If this is not currently possible, I'm hoping it's planned for future implementation. I can't suggest it either since the feature suggestion page appears to be down at the moment (being reworked?).
