Duck Duck Go list of search results has missing text and blank space, for example. Same missing text happened with earlier version of Firefox but is worse with this version update. Have Motorola moto 6g play phone.

Possible text rendering glitch on Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2017) SM-T380 Android Tablet

Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2017) SM-T380 Android version: 9 Firefox 115.0.1 Only Addon is ublock origin

I've had this problem for months now, but it was never as bad as it has become now on the latest Firefox 115.0.1 Android release. The issue would (seemingly) mainly occur on text heavy websites, like Wikipedia, but it never disrupted me enough to file a report until now. It's now happening on practically every website I can visit.

Basically, huge 'blocks' of websites will be 'blanked out', and the only way to potentially work around this is to pinch zoom until these 'blocks' get out of the way of the text/page elements they're obscuring. This isn't consistent however, so you can't reliably just pinch to zoom to a perfect level to have the page render all the way correctly, the 'blocks' will simply move to obscure other parts as you're zooming and trying to fix whichever specific portion of the screen you want to see properly.

So far I've tried disabling ublock origin for pages this was occurring on, clearing the program cache, restarting my phone, clearing all browser cache/history, toggling the different Accessibility options pertaining to page zoom, and none of these things have worked at all.

I've attached some screenshots of how this looks when zooming in. Other browsers (the Samsung browser, specifically) don't have this issue on this tablet, and I saw one google play store Firefox app review with my same device also mention having a similar sounding issue.

Anyone have any idea what the issue could be? If more screenshots from a different website are needed, or if I should have posted this elsewhere, please let me know.

So I got directed here after leaving an unfavourable review due to an ongoing issue that google had no answers for. The screenshot should show the problem. I don't not know what causes it, only that it feels random when it breaks. Cashe/data clearing doesn't help, only a full reinstall seems to fix it, but this gets annoying pretty quick. The issue is search boxes on websites become black, and the text looks weird. The only add-on I use is UBlock, and when I left the review, the app broke after just an hour after being reinstalled, before I even installed UBlock.

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S20Ultra if that helps, though I'm due for an update, and haven't had the time to sort it.

Hello, I'm writing to describe a recurring problem I'm facing while using Firefox on my Android device, and I need your help to find a solution.

The issue is that my tabs keep getting accidentally deleted when I scroll up and down. The touchscreen on my device is highly sensitive, and simple scrolling often triggers the "left or right swipe" action, causing the current tab to close. This is incredibly frustrating as I like to keep my tabs organized, and having to reopen them repeatedly is time-consuming.

I've tried looking for a solution in the Firefox for Android settings config:about, but I haven't been successful so far. Is there any way to disable or adjust this feature so that left swiping no longer closes my tabs?

I'm a dedicated Firefox user and would like to continue using this browser, but this problem is significantly impacting my browsing experience. I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide me with a solution to this issue.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Best regards, Denise

Hey there,

As the title suggests, I'm having an issue with the navigation bar. It remains at the bottom of the screen even when I have the least need for it, which makes the content of the screen glitchy. It may not sound like much, but it's very annoying and ruins the whole browsing experience, especially when watching videos. Because of the unwanted navigation bar, even a slight touch on the screen causes the videos or pages, but mostly videos, to move around left and right when in landscape mode. As you can see in one of the screenshots I sent, the video is not even visible, it's just a black screen, which is a different issue that I faced for the first time but I am not sure how often I'll get that in future but it's there.

If anyone can suggest a fix for this issue,(the one with the navigation bar and jumpy video screen) such as a setting that I can turn on or off to get rid of the navigation bar, it would be greatly appreciated.

Using FF for Android on a pixel 6 on every website when I try to scroll down nothing moves and if I keep sliding down the page refreshes. It thinks I'm at the top. Every single time. I have to scroll down a couple millimeters then it will go up. Scroll down is not an issue. I've seen other users with this issue and I've seen bug reports addressing it so I know it's a real thing.

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.

I am running Firefox and Duckduckgo on a Samsung Tab A (8.0), model SM-T387V.

Just within the last few weeks there have been blank (white) bars covering part of the search results. This also sometimes appears on a web page.

Screenshot attached.

If I use DuckDuckGo on Chrome it works fine.

What is the problem and how can I fix it? I can't find any support/help on the DuckDuckGo website.

Edit: When I use FireFox with a different search engine it does the same thing. If I use the Chrome browser with DuckDuckgo it works fine.

On various sites, e.g. DuckDuckGo search results, parts of the text are missing. Sometimes it's one or more complete lines, sometimes it's part of the line (left, right, middle, upper, lower part). It looks like rectangles in background colour hide the text. Zooming changes the affected zones and generally makes more an more text visible again. Selecting the missing text also makes it visible. This happens on only one device. Complete deinstallation and reinstallation of Firefox for Android didn't help.

I use Motorola Edge 30 Ultra, and I have noticed an issue with the long screenshot I would love some help with. As shown in this video, devices can make a full page screenshot in the settings. I have tested on my phone, and this feature works both in the settings and the Chrome app. However, I do not get this arrow pointing down on the screenshot preview in the Firefox app. Please share is it a bug or a functionality not supported in the app and if so, is there a chance of it being integrated. I really like the Firefox and the sync it has with my desktop browser, but this an important feature I use.

Firefox is failing to display text properly on pages. Paragraphs are getting whited out at seemingly random. If I zoom or highlight the missing part I can usually get it to show up.

I'm using the android mobile version.

I've tried: Clearing the cache Uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox Deleting all add ons Restarting my device Changing font display sizes in Firefox and on my device

It's only Firefox, pages display properly when I try using a different browser. This has been an ongoing problem but its suddenly effecting huge chunks of text on all websites where previously it would only block a word or two on some websites.

(It was even effecting text while trying to type this ticket which is super annoying. )

Hello

I am writing to report a problem with the context menu in Firefox for Android. I am very dissatisfied with how it is designed and I would like to have more control over it.

First of all, there are too many options from other apps that I do not use, which clearly take up space and I want to remove them, but I cannot. They are irrelevant to my browsing experience and they clutter the menu.

Secondly, I do not like that despite the bulkiness of the context menu, it only displays 2-3 items, and to get to the one I need, I have to scroll through the menu several times, which is extremely inconvenient. For instance, I often want to copy text, but this option is hidden at the bottom of the menu. It would be much easier if it were visible at the top or have the ability to build the context menu for my needs.

In other words, there is a bulky and inconvenient menu, which also has unnecessary and annoying options that I cannot do anything about, because apparently, the ability to customize and change the context menu is removed in the Android version.

Thankfully not too often are web site pages that are grossly out-of-format for my Android phone. Mostly everything is tiny. Yes, I can pinch expand or zoom in but then side back and forth scrolling is required to navigate and absorb the page. Not the optimum result. Very annoying.

I have font adjustments but those result in a similar and distroted page.

One web site option when available was a toggle for windows/cell phone that worked pretty good but it's not always provided. That implies the web site design is the formatting adjustment function.

Is the resultant cell phone display formatting a function of the visited web site, browser, phone device, etc or some combination of those entities settings?
