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!

REF: Firefox v109.2.0 / Windows 7 x64

How do we get Firefox to load the browser tabs, which are activated from other Android applications, diverted in the background?

The now, inaccesible, "about:config" switch" for this action is/was: "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground". The incessant switching between browser and active app can be most unproductive and unpleasant.

I think it was Firefox 52 or somewhere around the time that Firefox 52 came out, there was an addon that allowed users to spoof their device. I could make my Android phone appear to various websites, to be a Computer, a Tablet, an iphone, etc. Does Firefox still have that Addon? If so, how can I download it? If not, does anyone know where I might find a similar one?

Thank You.

I have a live radio link I stream from on my laptop, and it used to work on mobile using firefox.

https://live-radio01.mediahubaustralia.com/6TJW/aac/

Granted I haven't used it in a while on mobile so there have been a few updates. However, I went to stream it today and it loads as a download link. I even tried to force a desktop site and it still wanted to download. How do I circumvent the download so it will stream the media on my android device using firefox.

With the latest few updates to mitid (danish government online identification), it has been severely broken in Firefox (can't press "open app" in the browser, leaving you unable to auth). But the latest update introduced the use of one time codes(which can be enabled in the app) , enabling us to press "open app on other device", go to the app, read the code and input it.

I wonder how hard it would be for a Firefox to enable the app to work as simply as it does in chrome / safari?

To me, browsing the web is equally important on Desktop and on Mobile.

I have a really powerful desktop PC and I use Firefox for Windows with uBlock Origin. The speed difference between a Chromium based browser and Firefox on my desktop is negligible.

On the other hand, using Firefox on Android is atrocious, laggy, sluggish, slow as hell. I used Bromite (the lightest and most privacy focused chromium browser on Android) and I don't wanna go back. Sure, I'll lose the pristine cosmetic filtering and blocking capabilities of uBlock origin but the websites will load twice/thrice as fast and the app feels fast.

Now, if I change browser on mobile I will have to change it on Desktop too, cause of features like Bookmark syncing, sending pages to mobile and viceversa ecc...

I need a solution. I like firefox, what they are doing as a non profit organization, the battle against Chromium, the fact that adblocking works better ecc... but I don't want to compromise on mobile performance.

What should I do? Switch to something like Brave or is there any solution? Thanks.

I use the Firefox password manager build into the Web browser app on android.

Sometimes the autofill doesn't work on some apps/webservices so I need to manually copy the password across.

Since you stopped supporting lockwise, this is a massive pain, I need to click through many menus, and once I change screen the vault locks again meaning it's very cumbersome to copy a username and password.

Is there a shortcut to access the password vault directly? Is it possible to add a widget that launches straight into the vault in the browser?

Hello,

I'm new to using a smart phone and have downloaded Firefox Mobile onto my Android phone. It works great when searching for a website but I have one that I already know and would like to go directly to it. Unfortunately every time I enter the URL I get a search for the website, not the website itself.

What am I doing wrong?

BTW, I'm not using my phone to post this question but rather my laptop (which I find easier to use). My phone is a Moto G Power (2020) using Android 11 and FF 110.0.1

Thanks, Andre'a

So, I apprehend how this works presently (or until recently) with Firefox for Android solid cut back to approximately a dozen extensions (provide or take) and first of all broader extension get right of entry to being to be had in forks like Iceraven and, ultimately, if you understand the name of the game code and have a Mozilla account, Firefox Nightly and Firefox Beta.

But, i have examine that this is converting to in which in preference to the prevailing "integrated" extension Firefox for Android extension library that become heavily limited on Firefox solid, it'll be replaced with the aid of an AMO library open to submissions in the same way pre-version sixty nine Firefox for Android, and present day Firefox for home windows are, with Android variations of extension on the identical AMO pages as their desktop opposite numbers, for the ones computer developers who additionally need an Android model.

I have a few questions, which maybe other human beings have too, inclusive of:

- Which model is this anticipated to fully land in nightly and beta? Approximate date?

- Which version is this expect to fully land in strong? Approximate date?

- Will all present day extensions with new extension versions stick round in every user's installations with a continuing upgrade, or will human beings should reinstall extensions manually after changeover?

- If the extensions deliver over automatically, what happens to people upgrading from, say, simply for instance, modern-day Android uBlock beginning to new extension fashion uBlock foundation past the obvious? Will the settings and customizations to such things as filters and filter listing be ported over much like a ordinary software program improve, or does the exchange in codecs make that a non-starter and revert to a popular new installation uBO? I ask because if extension settings do not bring over, humans should recognise to be able to backup what they could (and, if a backup mechanism isn't always supplied by means of an extension, the give up user could optionally take screenshots or notes before the current model goes away to get it returned doing things the manner the cease person would really like after) and reimport it to the new edition, if they care about such matters enough to do it.

- What occurs to the modern Firefox for Android extensions, both those covered on solid and the numerous more that are not, but that humans access thru forks and non-solid versions of Firefox? Is this strictly a one system at a time component, in which the handiest system disappears whilst solid is going live with support for the new style extensions, or might both upload-on systems exist side via aspect for some time thereafter?

I have two lists of recovery keys and I'm wondering if there is a way to test them to see which one is correct.

I have no idea if it makes a difference but to my best knowledge I have a Firefox Original and Firefox Beta account.

It may just be Firefox information in general is all the same.

Either way I wanted to see which list of recovery keys was valid.
