I originally was able to create the home page shortcut to Piped with Chrome, but the shortcut launched Chrome, even though Firefox is my default browser?

Piped [https://piped.kavin.rocks/https://pip.../|Piped]

So I deleted the shortcut. Now, Chrome no longer even offers me the option to "Add to Home Screen" from the Piped page, but it still does for other sites. Within Chrome, It now offers me the option to open the page in Firefox, even if I make Chrome the default browser.

How can I get a shortcut to Piped on my home page that will open in Firefox?

There is a forum where poster tried to embed YouTube video, but YouTube refused to deliver the data. All browsers display there instead their customized messages about website error. So does Firefox for Android 113.2.0, but in this message it refers to itself as Nightly. Seems like developers forgot to tweak some settings in project.


Nightly Can’t Open This Page

To protect your security, m.youtube.com will not allow Nightly to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

I'm having an issue with Firefox on Android. On certain websites (e.g., Yahoo News, Calscape.org, Google search results--with Goggle Search Fixer add-on enabled), I can scroll down the page without issue, but scrolling slowly back up toward the top of the page with downward drags of my finger is only responsive half of the time. That is, I can only scroll back up with every-other downward swipe/drag of my finger. This odd behavior does not happen with other mobile browsers (I'm on Android 13 and using a Galaxy A53 5G). Any suggestions?

Sorry if this has already been addressed, the nature of the issue makes it very hard to search.

Firefox web access on my phone has been not working whatsoever for a few days now. The app opens, but no webpages load, including pages that were previously open in other tabs before the issue started. Instead of anything, there is just an empty grey screen with the bar at the top like usual. This also happens if I open any web URL in another app, like Discord or Gmail, and it tries to use my default browser (which is Firefox) to access it. Just straight greyness, no loading bar or anything. The issue isn't present in the default Samsung web browser, but honestly, I can't stand using anything other than Firefox, so even looking up help has had to wait until I could use my computer.

I've tried restarting my phone to no avail. I would like to try uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, but as far as I can tell there is no raw "copy a folder" way to back up my data for whatever reason, and when I tried backing up my data by creating a Firefox account for the first time and using sync... well, to do that, it tries to open a series of webpages. Which it can't do. So that was a dead end. And I would really like to avoid losing my tabs, bookmarks, and history if at all possible.

If I don't get an answer that works for me, I think I am going to enable developer access in my phone files and hook it up to my computer to try and force-backup my data, then uninstall and reinstall the app and see if that helps. Honestly, though, I'm really curious why this has happened and how I can prevent it in the future. Having my web browser suddenly just cease to function has been INCREDIBLY annoying.

Thank you for your time!

Hi there! I have a new S22+, all systems up to date. I'm logged into Firefox on both the Android and on my Mac Air.

Last time I migrated to a new phone, Sync filled in all my passwords on the phone. This time I'm having to copy and paste all the passwords; Samsung autopass (or whatever it's called) offers to fill them in, but of course doesn't have those passwords anyway.

What do I need to tweak or do differently to get the passwords to fill in?

I have noted from a web search that the subject of Javascript in Firefox (Android) has caused issues for some users of this browser.

I understand that JavaScript is now enabled by default in the standard version of Firefox (Android). It appears that once upon a time there was a config setting that could be tweaked to switch JavaScript on or off, but that setting may no longer work. Additionally, I also understand there are add-ons for the Android version of Firefox that can, amongst other things, apparently switch JavaScript on or off.

People here might be surprised to learn that the minimalist Firefox Focus (Android) browser already has a built-in, easily accessible, switch to turn JavaScript on or off:

Settings > Privacy & Security > Web Content > Block JavaScript

So, the point I would like to raise with Mozilla (but it seems to be impossible to contact them directly) is, if it is available in Firefox Focus (Android), why the heck is this switch not available in the mainstream, standard version of Firefox (Android)? It makes absolutely no sense not to have it, surely?

I would suggest that a good place to include a JavaScript switch would be in the 'Site permissions' section of Firefox (Android) settings. It is merely a suggestion as, for example, within the rather useful competitor Vivaldi (Android) browser there is such a switch located here:

Settings > WEB PAGES > Site settings > JavaScript

As for why there should be a JavaScript switch within Firefox (Android), that question is largely irrelevant. Mozilla have already seen a need to include it in Firefox Focus (Android), so what possible good reason could there be for not including it in Firefox (Android)? It mystifies me, and it's omission is an inconvenience too.

Does anyone here have a sensible answer to this question?

This occurs reliable for me right now on Firefox Mobile on https://aphyr.com/posts/358-a-history-of-leather-at-pride-1965-1995

While scrolling down the webpage, occasionally, about half a second after I lift my finger from the page, the viewport "jumps" up 1-2 paragraphs. This can happen more than once after I've stopped scrolling, or not at all. It appears to also sometimes happen while scrolling, but I can't reliably reproduce that part.

I've uploaded a video of this to https://i.imgur.com/guNho5G.mp4. It's a bit blurry, but the key point is there: I scroll down the page, slowly, and then right before the video loops, the screen "jumps up" once.

This also happens on https://www.egscomics.com/ occasionally, but on that webpage, it's only when I'm zoomed in on the text at the bottom, and scrolling slowly. Much less reliable to reproduce than the blog post on aphyr.com.
