30 second hangs when using tabs on FireFox Android

Hi!

Version: FF Android 101.2.0 (plus other version stuff I can provide if needed), Android 12

Just thought I'd report this because it appears to be a consistent, reasonably long-standing issue (months) on a popular news site. Or is it "just me"?

Website: https://alightmotionapk.co/mod/

Expected behaviour: I am able to open links and download files on this website as backround tabs and continue browsing.

Actual behaviour: 1. After a couple are opened, Firefox for Android hangs for very close to 30 seconds then does a deep redraw/repaint of all tabs and continues to function until I next try to open another background tab from that website. 2. During the hang tab interface continues to redraw, but the pages are not repainted and no taps events work. 3. At the end of this hang time, the pages appear to redraw from scratch and the context pop-up for the third long-press appears on top of whichever tab I was looking at.

It is 100% repro for me -- long-press fails when attempting to open the 3rd background tab, but repaint failure occurs earlier. There is something toxic happening.

Curiously, when I next view my Android Home screen, there is some sort deep refresh/repaint, as if it has been swapped-out or GC'd etc.

e.g. Is there some massive memory blow-out happening?

Context/workarounds: 1. I have tried clearing all browsing data and using a guess account on the phone. 2. I have no addons installed. 3. Neither Chrome nor FF Desktop exhibit this behavior. This is FF Android specific

Thanks!

D told me to ask support here.

my Browser was running slow with having hundreds of tabs open (mostly in inactive section), especially after mobile browser update.

Then I just open Firefox, and everything is Gone.

I go download Firefox on my desktop to attempt to backup up any copy of open tabs.

there are none.

luckily I have my history from my mobile saved on to my desktop.

but from what I read and my understanding, there is no way to backup Firefox history, only bookmarks.

what am I suppose to do? any fix? any recovery to access open tabs? or backup history?

(Note; I have tabs on my mobile browser to Never delete tabs. this glitch is Firefox's problem. I probably would've backed up my tabs if it was still working to fix the slowness issue.)

I can download, but I can never open downloads. I never had to do anything special before but viewing downloads has not worked in many months. These are word, pdf, or excel docs.

What can I do to fix this? I am setting up a new computer and having data accessible to tablet should make things a little (or a lot) easier.

Thank you.

There are 226 questions that came up when I searched for "about: config". A lot of users have requested that "aboutconfig" be an option for users who want to solve some of their own problems. I'm not a developer and find that i can research and follow instructions to resolve and/or personalize FF using it.

So, what do we as users need to do to impress this upon developers to lut it back on FF android, heck, on all of the apps!

If someone fools around with it and creates their own issues, thats not on y'all ! They can reinstall or go back to correct, etc. PUT A WARNING LABEL ON IT if you need to. From what I've read, thats the main reason it was removed.

Why punish responsible users for those who aren't ????

How do we impress this upon FF ???
