Not sure what has happened but in the last 2-3 days I am no longer able to long press on an image or video in Firefox mobile browser to bring up options to save, share etc.

Happens on multiple websites including ones that worked previously, can't remember if Firefox updated in the last few days but the issue has only just started.

Have cleared cache, reinstalled, all permissions needed to save images/videos are allowed, but had no effect on this issue.

The picture-in-picture function no longer works on my phone when viewing YouTube videos on my Android Firefox app.

In previous versions, I was able to enter full-screen mode while playing a YouTube video, then click the "home" button on my phone, and the video would play in picture-in-picture mode while I scrolled through other apps.

I am fully updated as of today (4/11/2023), I have tried the functionality with no add-ons and with the "Video Background Player" add-on, and I have double-checked to make sure that the "picture-in-picture" permission is checked for the app (it is).

My device specs are attached in the image below.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Every time I open a video and Firefox the stupid media control opens on my phone and plays the video or music or whatever I clicked on in the background for eternity unless I pause it, but then after a few minutes it just starts playing on its own again. Why is there no option to disable or close the stupid player?

I close Firefox I end the process but yet the stupid sound keeps coming out of my phone even with the screen off all the apps closed.

The only option I have is to hide the media control which then plays the music with absolutely no way for me to stop it. If I click on settings from that window it brings me to a screen where both options are already disabled saying not to use it but it's still opening anyways.

I can only find remedies for Windows or Mac I have not come across any solution for Android. I basically have to restart my phone every time this happens in order to get it to stop.

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.

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.

I'm getting a black screen while trying to view VR videos from Firefox Mobile.

I've tried VR videos from Chrome Mobile and it works fine there. It also works fine on Firefox Desktop.

So, only Firefox Mobile is having issues with VR videos for some reason.

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!

Video playback initially works, until suddenly it doesn't; no new videos will work, and videos that previously played in the same browsing session will stop working. Easy to reproduce on Reddit by browsing any video-heavy subreddit. Leaving a broken video in a tab seems to infect the rest of the browser across websites; if a broken video from site A is open in another tab, videos on site B won't play.

Sometimes quitting and restarting Firefox is enough to temporarily get video playback working again; sometimes I have to manually clear the browser cache; at least once I've had to reboot my phone.

Just updated to latest version of Firefox for Android (ver 113). When I try to watch a YouTube video in full screen, the app suddenly closes, as if I pressed the home button (note: I say "close" rather than "crash" because when I reopen it, all the pages are still loaded). This doesn't happen every time, but it is annoying. Is there any way to fix this?

Hi, I am using Firefox Beta for Android on my android phone. Its OS is Oreo (Android 8). Since Firefox Beta for Android 118.0b2, There is no audio on any website in Beta & Nightly. Firefox Stable and other browsers work just fine. Videos or online audio players work but there is no sound. I tried deleting cache, resetting the app and uninstalled and reinstalled the Beta and Nighty but the problem persists. I have searched online for help but I couldn't find any similar complaints. The audio on my phone works just fine. There is problem only in Firefox Beta (& Nightly) for Android. I don't have any extensions installed. I need your help. Thank you.
