Firefox Android: Youtube can't play full screen in landscape mode

Dear friends,

My mobile phone is OnePlus 8 Pro. ColorOS 13.0/Android 13. Firefox ver 111.1.1.

I like playing YouTube video in floating windows over other apps as shown in 1st pic. Therefore I can open other app on phone while still watching video.

Here is my trick: Step 1: access m.youtube.com in browser then play a video. Step 2: Tap the full screen button (the square in bottom-right corner of the video screen ). The video screen enlarges and rotates from portrait to landscape full screen mode. Step 3: Use 3-button navigation. tap 'Home' button then mobile phone go to home page with the YouTube video displaying in a small window over other apps. The browser could be firefox or chrome. Both works fine for me for years. I prefer firefox.

However since last week, I can't play this trick in firefox. Chrome still works fine.

In firefox, the weird thing happened in step 2: after tapping the full screen button, the video displayed in portrait mode. It didn't rotate to landscape full screen mode. Please refer to pic 2.

Anyone has idea how to fix this? Many many thanks!

How to go directly to a website without searching

Hello,

I'm new to using a smart phone and have downloaded Firefox Mobile onto my Android phone. It works great when searching for a website but I have one that I already know and would like to go directly to it. Unfortunately every time I enter the URL I get a search for the website, not the website itself.

What am I doing wrong?

BTW, I'm not using my phone to post this question but rather my laptop (which I find easier to use). My phone is a Moto G Power (2020) using Android 11 and FF 110.0.1

Thanks, Andre'a

I would like to view the individual files in my cash to find an image that appeared in my web browser. The site was feeding me the image via JavaScript so I don't actually have a link to go to in order to see it again.

Add a deep link shortcut to my Android home screen when "Add to home screen" menu item is missing

I want to add a shortcut to my Android home screen which deep links to a page within a site I use. However, the "Add to home screen" menu item I'm accustomed to using for this is missing.

It turns out that if the website in question is configured to be used as a "progressive web app", then "Add to home screen" is replaced by an "Install" menu item. For my situation, this is unhelpful, because the resulting home screen icon only links to the website's home page, not to the carefully selected URL that I want to deep link to.

SOLUTION

This can be worked around by turning on airplane mode first, then visiting the desired URL. The page, obviously, will not be found, but this causes the "Add to home screen" item to be reinstated. Use it, then turn off airplane mode again. Voilà!

Costumize which links opened externally on FF for android?

Hey I'm using FF for android (v103) I know I can set FF to open links in external apps or to open links in FF. The problem starts when I want to open some links in FF and some in the external app.

For example: I like the way YouTube is played in FF and want YouTube links to stay in FF, while messanger.com links don't work at all in FF and I want to open them in messanger app.

Can I configure this to happen automatically? Choose which links opened externally and which not?

I use the Firefox password manager build into the Web browser app on android.

Sometimes the autofill doesn't work on some apps/webservices so I need to manually copy the password across.

Since you stopped supporting lockwise, this is a massive pain, I need to click through many menus, and once I change screen the vault locks again meaning it's very cumbersome to copy a username and password.

Is there a shortcut to access the password vault directly? Is it possible to add a widget that launches straight into the vault in the browser?

To me, browsing the web is equally important on Desktop and on Mobile.

I have a really powerful desktop PC and I use Firefox for Windows with uBlock Origin. The speed difference between a Chromium based browser and Firefox on my desktop is negligible.

On the other hand, using Firefox on Android is atrocious, laggy, sluggish, slow as hell. I used Bromite (the lightest and most privacy focused chromium browser on Android) and I don't wanna go back. Sure, I'll lose the pristine cosmetic filtering and blocking capabilities of uBlock origin but the websites will load twice/thrice as fast and the app feels fast.

Now, if I change browser on mobile I will have to change it on Desktop too, cause of features like Bookmark syncing, sending pages to mobile and viceversa ecc...

I need a solution. I like firefox, what they are doing as a non profit organization, the battle against Chromium, the fact that adblocking works better ecc... but I don't want to compromise on mobile performance.

What should I do? Switch to something like Brave or is there any solution? Thanks.

Howdy folks, hope all is well your way...

When I download a file, a notification pops up when the download is complete. I find this quite annoying, especially when downloading file in a bit of rapid succession.

Is there some way to turn this off on FF mobile?

I tried... about:config > browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel on the nightly build, but after having created the option, it doesn't seem to work.

I would be forever indebted to any suggestions y'all can provide.

Thanks.

I opened Firefox on my fold 5 and I can't see my tabs...I only see a small box with a number that represents the websites I have open. If I click that numbered box a window opens showing me all the tabs still open. I would like to view my tabs the old way...the way it was when I fell in love with Firefox. Is it not possible with fold 5 or am I doing something wrong???

If I open chrome however it does display all tabs in toolbar menu area. I could just use Chrome but as mentioned I would rather stay loyal to Firefox.

Thanks in advance, Mike s
