The firefox app always rotates to landscape mode if I turn my phone. I can find a setting that locks the screen for the phone itself, and it appears to stop other apps from rotating, but firefox doesn't seem to care if I have screenlock set to on and just keeps on rotating.

Hi there,

1. Download and launch the Firefox Nightly app.

2. Enter about:config in the address bar.

3. Search for the preference named "orientation".

4. Try to select any orientation mode and click on the toggle from true to false or false to true, because there have different type of orientation and try it one by one.

5. Restart the applications.

I hope that this will help you.

WARNING from the moderator team: Changing Firefox pref from the about:config page can sometimes break Firefox or cause strange behavior. You should only do this if you know what you're doing.

Please read Firefox Advanced Customization and Configuration Options to learn more.
