Second mouse button click and desktop zoom level on Android/Samsung DeX

Hi,

I am a frequent user of Firefox on multiple platforms, including Android 14, where I frequently use DeX.

However, I am many times forced to use Chrome or Samsung Internet on DeX to get a professional computer desktop experience.

Firefox does not recognize different mouse button clicks and neither does it view websites with high resolution, not even after selecting "Desktop mode", but instead shows a zoomed-in phone view. (I gave tried selecting various zoom levels in settings.) There may be other shortcomings as well.

Perhaps some of the issues can be avoided by changing some settings? However, please address the issue of providing a full desktop experience in DeX. Thanks for a great browser in most other respects on multiple platforms.

Problem directly viewing PDF of a web page

I encountered a problem occurring under LineageOS 20 (android 13) on a Sony ZX1 Compact. Can't check if it's the android version or just something with that Lineage ROM (which works perfectly with anything else):

When I make a PDF of a web page with Firefox and then just press "view", the pdf viewer says the file doesn't exist, even though it was saved correctly to the Download folder. Choosing Firefox itself as pdf viewer, I could determine that the viewer gets a file link like this:

content://org.mozilla.firefox.feature.downloads.fileprovider/Download/Download/Kanaren-Wetter%3A%20Sturm-Warnung%20zum%20Wochenende%20ausgegeben.pdf

Which appears to point not to the real Download folder, but perhaps to Firefox' subfolder in the Android/Data folder? The same link is given in any other OS, and normally it always works. Could it have to do with the fact that in LineasgeOS 20 (and quite surely also stock android 13) the Android folder is write protected ?

With some web pages, Firefox provides different links, like: content://media/external_primary/downloads/1000009015 and with those there's no problem. So I think may really be an issue with directory access.

I fiddled around a lot with OS settings and Firefox beta's about:config as well, but to no avail. Also de- and reinstalled Firefox.

Any idea what could be the cause ?

Recently I noticed that occasoinally if I try to load a new page on a new tab it will not render. Sometimes it helps if I close it from the recent apps and reload Firefox. Last ti.e it didn't helped. This time what was interesting I tried to switch to a not yet loaded page, it was also black. Than I switched to a page with a preloaded preview it flickered for a bit and than the issue resolved itself. The affected device is a newly installed s24 with exynos s2400 so I'm not sure if it's a driver issue or is it a firefox bug. I didn't notice any similar with other apps.

Hello all. I have a strange problem, sorry for the length. So I have a windows pc, and 2 android devices, a cell and a tablet. Sync has not really worked well for over 3 years, and I'm trying yet one more time to fix this. I honestly don't believe it can. Each device is pretty much on its own, so I do not see all of my articles/tabs on all 3. If you were to take a look at each, the tabs are all different. I've tried everything. So let me ask this: is there a way to manually do this? I guess I'll just have to do that. I've signed in and out on both android devices, hit the sync button on all 3, looked for updates on all 3, etc. My cell didn't even show up on my pc for 3 years. I don't want to mess with that one yet {cause it's windows}, I've gone into settings, tried what the articles suggest. Nothing. Weirdly, my bookmarks are fine {thank goodness}. Please help. Much thanks.
