Websites are not loading, search is not working. The app is not working at all. Tried closing and reopening FF, cleared cache, rebooting phone and few other settings but nothing helped. Tried googling around the problem and most of the users are also facing same issue. It might be fixed by reinstalling the app but I CANNOT do that because my site data is important and I don't see any way to backup site data to my PC. Please help with the issue without losing FF app data.

Yesterday I started having trouble logging into Gmail and associated apps (calendar, contacts, docs, sheets, shared folders, etc., as well as google.com) in Firefox. All other sites are loading with no problems. Google apps are working fine in Chrome. Still having problems today.

My office uses Google Workplace for everything so this is really messing me up, I've lost several hours of work trying to get things to load. The IT person told me that if Firefox is having problems I should use Chrome instead. I hate Chrome! I want to use Firefox, but I can't get my work done if it won't load Google apps.

Please note that I have tried the following solutions thus far: restarted Firefox (several times) restarted computer removed add-ons cleared cached web content cleared cookies and site data refreshed Firefox solution at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1200943 solution at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1132284 solution at https://knowtechie.com/is-mozilla-firefox-not-loading-pages-for-you-heres-the-fix/

After each fix things start working for a while but then everything Gmail-related freezes or crashes and I need to start all over again. Help!!!

Guys, this is getting ridiculous. How long does it take to implement such a basic and simple feature into the stable version of FF mobile?!

I'm forced to use FF Nightly with its annoying daily updates, just so I can have the pull to refresh feature available.

People shouldn't be forced to download and use a test build of an app just to use a BASIC feature which should have been finished and available from day one.

Get your sh*t together please and add this to the stable FF mobile release already. PLEASE!

It doesn't need more "testing". You're not launching a moon rocket. It works fine. Add it to the stable release.

Yours, Frustrated and loyal FF user.

This behavior can also be observed in Youtube, for example. After exiting the full screen, the Youtube search bar is no longer visible. It reappears when you rotate the device and sometimes also when you scroll down or zoom in and out. Unfortunately, this does not work on websites that are not scrollable. There the hidden content (mostly the header) is only visible again after rotating the device (reloading has no effect). This seems to be a similiar bug: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303054 or this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20636580/firefox-for-android-address-bar-overlaps-content-is-there-a-solution On my Android tablet, first the Android navigation bar overlaps the website and then after a fullscreen and fullscreen exit, the address bar overlaps instead. It would be nice if these "address bar overlaps content" or "navigation bar overlaps content" bugs could be permanently fixed, especially since I have not found a way to work around the bug through javascript.

I cannot even upload multiple screenshots, it is stuck at uploading. Everywhere fonts are just like this. The whole browser is unusable. I switched from Chromium and it's just giving me more and more issues here. I had to tweak dev options, config, and what not. And even after all that, now fonts are dead.

I am using three extensions: uBlock, AdGuard, and DarkReader and none of them are messing up.

I have a blog over at venera.social, and when I view my timeline on my Fold4 using Dex, the page doesn't fully load, cutting off about two-thirds of the way down, which is rather a problem as the navigation buttons are at the bottom of the page. The problem is only when using DeX with an external trackball connected, when using the phone screen as a touch pad or just using Firefox on the phone, the page loads completely.

Specs: Android 13 Pixel 5 with latest version of Firefox installed.

Issue: This problem has existed for months for me.

audio stutters or more so swiftly cuts in and out.

Sometimes the video itself stutters/lags.

Taping the full screen icon puts the app in the background. Upon reopening it, the entire app looks like it's hanging off the side of the screen.

Example attached.

Can't connect with the just downloaded version 66.0.4 to virtually any site - not to Google, not to NYT, not even to Mozilla - Firefox won't accept ANY certificate! Following errors appear (examples): "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to addons.cdn.mozilla.net because this web site requires a secure connection. What can you do about it? addons.cdn.mozilla.net has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site. The issue is most likely with the web site, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the web site’s administrator about the problem.

The explanation is as follows: Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue. Web sites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.nytimes.com because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates.

No problems whatever with other browsers. I'm sending this with Safari.

I am working on a project that entails saving various news stories. Since your last upgrade to 97.0.1 I have no problem with all other newspapers except for Washington Post. FF will not save them, so I am forced to click on the "progress of ongoing download" down pointing arrow and click again on the circular arrow to actually save the web page. This involves a loss of time doing a task that I should not be forced to perform. See the graphic image below to see what I'm talking about. Once I click on that circular arrow the web page will be saved as it should have to begin with. Since I normally save 30 to 40 Washington Post files every day, this adds up to a useless waste of my time. I'd appreciate it if you would look into this matter and issue a correction update so I can save Washington Post web pages without all the double stroking. Thank you.

Favicon being overridden by images from webpages instead

I've noticed since I've replaced my Samsung tablet with a newer version (S6 Lite running Android 12) that this version of Firefox is not picking up the favicon on my website. When I save the website shortcut to my homescreen, instead of the favicon Firefox is picking up the first image it finds on the page.

So - if I save all five webpages of my website to my tablet, each will have a different image - and none of them will be my favicon. The image from my tablet screen, attached (5 rows x 6 icons, against a beach backdrop) - shows three of the pages from my website, circled in yellow. You can see that none of them have picked up my fish favicon, and some of them have picked up the Etsy image link instead.

This problem of the favicon being ignored isn't being replicated elsewhere - my PC (very ancient, running an up to date Firefox browser) shows the favicon in the browser toolbar and on the homescreen, and my Samsung phone (equally ancient, running an up to date Chrome browser) shows the generic alphabet letter icon when the website is saved to my homescreen (this is not a problem, I'm just mentioning it). Images attached.

Is there a simple fix for the favicon being overridden, or a workaround? I'd be grateful if someone could explain why it's happened and what I can do to fix it. I'm conscious that if someone saved my website to their browser using just the favicon and no text, as I do, they might simply delete it if they don't recognise the favicon. Thanks in advance. Rachel
