After selecting Mozilla as my default browser, I tried to perform a search but the only page that loads is the page that wants you to download Mozilla on desktop and android, which I already have. Each time I've tried to do a search with Firefox this is the page that appears, no search results of any kind, but when I switch my search to duckduckgo and perform the search I get results. Can someone please help me understand why I can't perform a search using firefox?? Thank you in advance for your help!

Sometimes when I close and reopen Firefox, or when it's been sitting as a background app and gets refreshed, my currently open tab will no longer load; it hangs on a blank page showing a progress bar but never progressing. All the other tabs work fine, and copying the url of the failing tab to open it in a new tab works fine as well. I saw this problem more often when I had homepage enabled, but it still sometimes happens now (and I think it sometimes still goes into homepage by itself anyways, maybe that's the culprit?). This is a problem for me because I frequently use the page history for going back and forth on my most used tab, and this forces me to close it and then shuffle in a new tab

i'll try and describe the issue the best i can, sometimes when you have multiple tabs i've noticed the last tab open or which is the lastest tab will sometimes die.

Let's say you open YouTube in a tab and you leave it to go to Google in another tab when you go back to the YouTube tab it will show YouTube in the url but the page will be blank. If you go back to the Google tab it shows Google you can move around the google site but you cant use it. You can try and reload the page but nothing happens you can re enter Youtube in the address bar or any site but nothing happens the tab is essentially unusable.

For instance in the screen shot i posted the comicbook .com tab "died" and when i switch to the Entertainment earth tab it says Comicbook .com i can't enter in a new URL you just get a infinte loading bar that never loads. if i hit reload you again get a infinte loading bar or sometimes it just goes blank.

This has been happening for awhile and has happened on multiple devices this isn't a single instance on one device.

going to the battery usage shows that firefox is using a lot of cpu no background refresh, high number of wifi data.

developers of Firefox could add few options for users

1. if there are multiple tabs make all inactive and only the active tab consume data

2. use compression engine so that less data is sent over the wire 3. dont auto play audio or video 4. use new os level power management https://developer.android.com/about/versions/14/behavior-changes-all

On November 22nd, 2023, when the application got its last update, everytime I open a new tab it stops loading the website half-way. And it blocks every other tab I have saved for later from loading again. It works after I erase cache 5 or 6 times. I had no problems like this one in the past.

Hi guys, for the last few weeks I’ve been struggling to upload articles to listen to. This week I haven’t been able to upload and listen to ANY… I’ve just deleted the app, and gone through the APP store to upload the articles again… and again with no change. Would it be possible to look at this, because up until this September I’d never had any problems uploading. Many thanks, and I look forward to hearing back from you soon!

I have noticed for a while that when I have a tab open and switch apps and come back to Firefox, that many times the tab is blank. I try to switch tabs and switch back and the tab is either still blank or displays the content of the other tab that I had switched to. Usually its with the newest tab but sometimes can be an older tab that is currently the active tab. The only way I can figure out to get the tab working again is to close the tab and use the message that appears to "undo" this change and restore the tab.

Any help would be appreciated since this happens on almost a daily basis and will typically happen multiple times a day

I have no idea what is happening... But after restarting, clearing my cache, making sure I have data and it is working for other apps... Still no results.

No matter what, whether I try to type in a URL, click on a link in the google app, or refresh a page I already have open, the app doesn't even attempt to load a page or throw up an error. Just a blank background, no loading bar, no error messages, and no redirects...

At some point pages just stop loading.

When it happens, which is multiple times per day, the lock on the left of the URL bar will be in the "error" / strike through state. The lock icon does not open the popup on click. There is no progress bar. The page stays grey. No error message.

The same URL, in this case the Firefox Android "Get help" link, loads fine in Chrome. In Firefox a force close of the app is needed before it is able to load pages again.

I raised this issue in my review on the Google App Store and was asked to submit it as a question here. On my phone (Oppo running on ColorOS 13.1), Firefox will stop working a number of times a month. For about 24 hours, aside from Google result pages, nothing will load, and I'll be stuck looking at an empty loading screen. The last time I raised this issue I was told to delete and reinstall the app, which worked in the moment but did nothing to stop the problem occurring again. Aside from waiting for the app to fix itself, nothing I've found works.

This is driving me insane. On mobile data (3,4,5g) Firefox will not open any websites, it just sits with a white page until eventually I get "connection reset". Every other browser on the device works fine though, and Firefox can access sites when on WiFi.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the main app *and* installed focus,beta and nightly versions,all have the same problems. Permissions on mobile data are allowed.

I cannot even get a sensible log or network trace out of the browser as there are no Dev tools.

It sometimes feels like Mozilla are trying their absolute hardest to lose users, I even had had the old "browser uses 12gb of memory for two tabs" problem on desktop the other week.

I am using firefox on android device running android 12. Have tried websites like: youtube, 9gag, and basic searches with duckduckgo and the websites don't load, or no indication of loading happens, or sometimes slow loading occurs and stops after progessing midway of total bar length. I see the same issue on firefox beta, but on chrome. I am using ublock origin as an addon. On the main browser i have a bunch of open and inactive tabs, but on beta almost no tabs. The only thing that might unblock my issue is to disable my phone's private dns which points to google or adguard. But even with it off, i still see the same issue appearing.
