Recently I migrated to Firefox to get rid of the unbearable heavy load of ads on Chrome and would be satisfied with such change if it was not by the slow way Firefox handles Youtube player. As I touch to maximize the screen it is a painful process : the image rotates to a smaller rectangle and after some seconds finally fills up the screen. Once in full screen video player control no longer works. The same did not occur with Chrome , in full screen I used to have control. I noticed previously on my desktop running Windows 10 that Fireworks it is much slower to go full screen on Youtube and to exit full screen. I think Firefox handles with more difficulty the Youtube player than Chrome , or perhaps I am missing something. Unfortunately I think I will have to return to Chrome on Android.

Hi Ron

Do you have any add-ons installed in Firefox for Android?

Hi

To help our developers will look into this in more detail, we will need some logs from inside your copy of Firefox for Android. Type about:crashes in the address bar which will display information about recent crashes. If you select the most recent "Socorro" link, a crash report will open in a new tab. If you could copy and paste the address of the page that opens into a reply to this thread, we will be able to look into this further for you.

A couple of other questions:

- How many tabs do you have open when this happens? - How many of those tabs have videos playing?

I hope that this helps.
