Ever since the newer release of Firefox Mobile (the one that changed the interface), downloads have frankly been a miserable experience on my Galaxy S9+ on Android 10. This is Firefox 83.1.0

Images were downloading but not visible in the Gallery app (except when opening directly from Firefox), even when use external download manager was enabled. Not a huge issue, sharing got around it. Today I tried downloading a video and had some bizarre behavior. The MP4 file opened in Garmin Connect, a smart watch app which didn't know what to do with it. I figured Garmin messed something up and uninstalled temporarily. Now the Mp4 file wouldn't open at all, so I download VLC. Still won't open, even from My Files app. I tried sharing from my files to VLC - I get an error saying "content://media/external/file/11046 cannot be played." Weird - the file is just in my Downloads folder, and other videos from there play fine. I move it from downloads to my Internal storage and the video suddenly works fine.

What can I do to fix this new download functionality?

Is it possible to have Firefox for Android open Amazon links in the Amazon app?

Also it seems that all sites open in the desktop version no matter if the 'request desktop site' box is checked or not. I'm running on a Nexus 6 so I have a pretty big screen. Could that be causing the mobile sites not to be loaded?

Hi,

I have an issue where Firefox automatically goes in to landscape mode when you play a video but then gets stuck there. The issue resolves itself if I leave the phone overnight or restart it, however this is far from ideal.

I have searched the support forum to no avail and also tried to use about:config however don't seem to be able to access it, which I understand to be a 'feature' of the current firefox build.

Ideally I'd like to completely stop firefox from forcing the browser in to landscape mode, however a way to return to portrait afterwards would also help a lot.

Phone - Huawei P9 Lite OS and browser are on auto update so will be the most recent version.

Many thanks, Alastair.

Can't see home page on private tab

Using 83.1.0. I have it configured such that whenever I start the browser, it starts in private browsing mode. It always has this explanation of what private browsing is about. I can't tell it to stop showing that text, which I don't need to see any longer. And I can't see the home page. If I go to non-private mode, there is the home page. However, I am unable to click on anything in the home page and have it open in a private tab. It always opens in a non-private tab.

Please fix the browser so that I can see the home page in private browsing mode, and if I click on a link on the home page, it will open in a private tab, too.
