Version 112.1.0 does not show media control when playing YouTube and stops playing in the background. For example, with DTUBE playback, media control is present and background playback works as before. I activated the "video background playback fix" add-on, but it didn't help. On iOS, the version 112.1.0 has no issue with playing in background. What is the problem with Android?

Firefox Android: Youtube can't play full screen in landscape mode

Dear friends,

My mobile phone is OnePlus 8 Pro. ColorOS 13.0/Android 13. Firefox ver 111.1.1.

I like playing YouTube video in floating windows over other apps as shown in 1st pic. Therefore I can open other app on phone while still watching video.

Here is my trick: Step 1: access m.youtube.com in browser then play a video. Step 2: Tap the full screen button (the square in bottom-right corner of the video screen ). The video screen enlarges and rotates from portrait to landscape full screen mode. Step 3: Use 3-button navigation. tap 'Home' button then mobile phone go to home page with the YouTube video displaying in a small window over other apps. The browser could be firefox or chrome. Both works fine for me for years. I prefer firefox.

However since last week, I can't play this trick in firefox. Chrome still works fine.

In firefox, the weird thing happened in step 2: after tapping the full screen button, the video displayed in portrait mode. It didn't rotate to landscape full screen mode. Please refer to pic 2.

Anyone has idea how to fix this? Many many thanks!

Until recently (sorry, I don't know which version I upgraded from), it was possible to let media play the background with Firefox for Android. Media would show up on the lock screen and could be played/paused from there when open in the browser. Now, I have found no way of playing media from Firefox without having the window in focus.

I'm wondering if this was an Android change or a Firefox change that broke Android detecting media playing in Firefox, and whether this is/was intended, a known issue, or a bug?

I'm on Android 13 (Oxygen OS 13 on OnePlus Nord 2T), with Firefox version 112.2.0 (release April 24 on the play store).

I'm having trouble with Firefox on my mobile device. It was working fine yesterday but won't access the internet now. It runs but won't connect. All other programs on my device access it as always. Could I have unknowingly disabled it? I've made no changes to any of my settings for months. I don't want to lose the info it has acquired by reinstalling. Can you please help?

Sometimes, Firefox 114.2.0 for Android suddenly stops rendering pages or loading new pages.

  • Try to search: instantly stops loading, completely white tab, address bar content changes to search
  • Try to enter an address directly: doesn’t load, completely white tab, address bar contents stay the same
  • Force quitting and reloading doesn’t change anything
  • Clearing cache doesn’t change anything
  • Clearing data fixes the problem, at the cost of losing all home-screen customization, extensions, and search engine customization, which aren’t synced with the Firefox account

I'm on Android 11, Oxygen 11.0.13.BE.89BA

Whenever I open up Firefox and enter a website or a google search nothing happens.

No loading screen, no crash, just nothing.

Uninstalling it and reinstalling it works once, but then the second time I open Firefox I'm back to the same issue.


Google Chrome works just fine, and I'm not having any issues related to data or wifi.

There is a bar now on the side of my phone in landscape mode, it wouldn't be a problem except it is even present during full screen mode for videos. I have tried deleting it and reinstalling it and it still comes up. It's not my phone because this only started happening on here and just started two days ago, before that this was the only browser I used now I have been using other ones to watch videos.

Hello, for the past month when watching youtube through the firefox app, I am unable to use the media output feature of my phone (galaxy S21 FE) to stop/play videos. So for e.g. I used to be able to minimise the browser and listen to the audio only output. But now the audio stops when I minimise. Other applications are able to trigger the media output so that's not a problem with my phone.
