Firefox cant click small details button
Hey guys, why does the firefox android could not click a very simple small button? For example an "x" button (cancel) and etc. As long as it's small the firefox would not interact with it properly, instead when i click it firefox thought that i long pressed that small button and its kinda annoying because what i need to do is to zoom in for that button just so the firefox could properly click that and not long pressed. Problem is almost all the websites i visit has a button like that and so does it mean i will literally need to zoom a simple "x" button or any kind of small details on a webpage just for firefox could properly identify them? Example of whats happening link Browser: latest firefox android Device: Realme 6 , 8/128

The video you have provided shows you long pressing in a link and the long press menu appearing correctly.
Do you have an example of a site where the "x" issue occurs?
Thats the problem i did not long pressed it i just click it and firefox keeps on long pressing the button thats why i need to zoom in so it can properly click. This is another one link , as i've said it applies to all websites as long as it is a small detail, the firefox will have a problem of clicking it properly.
I have just tried that page myself on my Android 8 device and the page worked correctly. I think that the issue may sit with your device and the way that the page has been designed rather than with Firefox for Android.
I've posted this on reddit and there are also users messaging me saying they have the same problem, if you just know how annoying is this bug, as much as i like firefox to be my main browser but because of this tiny issue it makes me want to delete it and use chrome instead.
Imagine every browsing you do and you need to click like menu button or login or whatever it is on a website you visited, you need to zoom them in before you can click them, what kind of browsing experience is that.
Do you have any links you can share to those other comments?
The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers. You can file a bug report or feature request. See File a bug report or feature request for Mozilla products for details.
Update: I updated to the new version 95.1.0 of the firefox daylight and thankfully the clicking bug is solved. Now i can browse without hassle again thanks mozilla.
No problem, glad to hear it has been resolved.
