Missing Forward/Back buttons when playing videos & frequent pauses to load content.

1. Recently (two weeks or more) I have noticed that the Forward and Back (10 second) buttons have been missing on my Android phone (ATT Samsung S22+) when playing videos. They are just to the right of the play clocks at the bottom left of the video image. I checked and they are still there for the same videos played on my desktop, so I know that this is not due to the content provider. Is this a mistake, oversight in a recent upgrade, or do I have to switch browsers?

2. For a lot longer than the missing buttons in #1 above, my phone occasionally gives the whirling circle that indicates that it is loading content. In the past when it stopped to load, it restarted in the exact same place, and I didn't miss anything. But now, for some time it seems like the video continues to run so that when the load catches up, the video picks up sometime later than when it stopped, so I miss some of the video. There was a workaround before you took the Forward/Back buttons away, because I could just back up to the point that the video stopped, but now it is a royal pain to get back to the correct spot. In my darker moments, I might think that this is a conspiracy, to make me miss important parts of my videos, but then I come back down to Earth.

I really want the buttons back because I use the Forward button to skip content that I am not interested in, and if you could give me some cure for the frequent loading pauses I would be grateful.

Hello,

Firefox began to act very slow on my Pixel phone. I have worked on the issue the last two days. I called Norton and ran my Norton scanner several times; I am told my phone is using toouch memory from Norton yet I have no virus. I disabled Google and the phone is better. There is a problem with the Google update that Google is either not acknowledging or does not know how to fix. I re-installed Firefox. Now I can go to the Yahoo.com website. When I click to login into Yahoo mail the webpage crashes and reads that Mozilla cannot open this page. I have never had this problem before. I am able to open the login page using the Chrome browser. I wonder if there is a default security setting from when I re-installed Firefox that I should deselect? I seem to be able to use all other parts of Firefox. I clicked on the button to send Mozilla the crash reports information. Thank you for helping me.

For sometime now I have been unable to access my Bell email on Firefox except if I use private browsing and then it allows me to get to my login and by default allows me to enter my login and password. But if I don't use privacy browsing mode, I cannot get to my email. This is on my android Samsung phone btw. Bell tells me it's a browser issue and that I'm to contact Firefox or switch to Chrome or Edge, but I'd rather do it through Firefox. Can anyone assist as to how I can correct this issue?

Following question asked by petitechisa 7/31/21, 3:24 PM answered but not solved, by jscher2000 - Support Volunteer, then archived.

"Don't like PWA, please bring back 'add to homescreen' bookmarking/shortcut option."

I have the exact same problem as the poster, but only in last month or so. "Shortcut" doesn't open in normal browser (what's a PWA?) and page doesn't have a menu/URL bar, so useless. Normal app either gives "Add to Home Screen" or "Install" option, but both result in PWA (I guess), not a shortcut which opens in app. i. e. menu option irrelevant. Not happy (Just been reading a GitHub stream on the subject - deliberate Mozilla choice! Nobody likes PWA, get rid!!!)

Video playback on Firefox Beta for Android

Hi. I have been running Firefox Beta on a Sony Bravia VH1 TV (X900H with Android TV 10) for almost two years, downloaded from firefox-ci-tc.services.mozilla.com. I typically install the latest armeabi-v7a APK once a month. I also keep the TV OS updated. To match the TV resolution, I have browser.viewport.desktopWidth set to 1920.

At some point after April 2022, all browser versions stopped rendering correctly YouTube videos when I select a playback resolution lower than 1080p - the browser displays a zoomed-in and cropped on all sides video, basically, just the center of the video frame. This is happening in all view modes - default, theater, full screen, mini player. The issue is also impacting Vimeo and other streaming sites. Even services for which the playback resolution is not user-controllable.

I still have an old APK which does not have this issue - v100.0.0-beta.4 build 2015873993 2022-04-11. I tired it again yesterday after uninstalling the latest version and the video playback worked just fine.

Any idea what might be causing this and if it is fixable with about:config, or extensions, or if there is a bug tracking this issue?

Thank you.

When I clicked Firefox from the “Share via” apps list, it just goes to random apps. It’s rare that this happens but it’s kind of frustrating.

This also happened to Fennec F-Droid, which is a Firefox-based browser and others like Mull, Iceraven etc.

I screen captured the error to make it more clear: https://streamja.com/49ldz
