Despite updating to the latest Firefox version (127.0) and performing a reset, I continue to face high CPU usage issues. The battery monitor reports extensive CPU consumption for minimal use, even when only a single tab is open. This problem is not exclusive to the main Firefox app; it persists across other Firefox-based browsers as well.

Device: Xiaomi (HyperOS - Android 14) Issue: High CPU usage across multiple Firefox versions Troubleshooting Done: App reset, tried alternative Firefox-based browsers

I urge the development team to investigate this recurring issue, as it significantly affects the performance and battery life of mobile devices. Your prompt attention to this matter would be greatly appreciated by all users experiencing similar problems.

Firefox for Android gets frozen when using it to open large PDF files. I have been meaning to change my default PDF viewer app, but once Firefox has been set as the default PDF viewer for Android, there will no way to change this default; as Firefox default's don't have the option to be deleted through Android's App Info menu.

I am writing to request assistance with an issue I am encountering on the latest version of the Firefox browser for Android. My goal is to open specified pages in the same tab using Intent from a third-party custom application. However, I have observed that different URLs open in separate tabs, contrary to my expectations.  Current Implementation:  Here is the code snippet I am currently using: java: Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW); intent.setData(uri); intent.putExtra(Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID, packageName); startActivity(intent); Expected Behavior:  I expect different URLs to open in the same tab without opening new tabs. This functionality is crucial for my application.  Issue Background:  I have researched similar issues and found that users have had comparable needs using Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID. Unfortunately, it appears that Firefox has not fully addressed this functionality. The EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID is a feature that modern browsers should ideally support to enhance user experience and maintain continuity within a single tab.  References:  I have referred to the following discussions and issues for additional context:  Mozilla Support Forum: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1364869 GitHub Issue: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/23329 Request:  I kindly request that the Firefox team consider adapting this functionality officially or provide an alternative solution if it has already been addressed. Any relevant documentation or guidance on achieving this behavior would be highly appreciated.  Thank you for your time and assistance.

Hi. I can't watch a video on any website after updating my android app to v.(126.0 I think) because it plays Stuttery and laggy. I don't have much tab open, mainly 2 or 3 and incognito mode doesn't makes any difference. Still videos play laggy as if it's on low fps. The recent update to v126.0.1 didn't fix it either. My phone is galaxy s21 ultra if it matters.

I can't remember when this problem started, but the volume dips down for maybe 1-2 seconds shortly after the start of anything with sound, like YouTube videos and MP3s embedded in a website. On the same phone with Chrome, the problem does not happen.

Has anyone experienced this? I made a screen capture that demonstrates the problem, alternating first with Chrome, then with Firefox (then both again) -- https://youtu.be/GB116jauaX4

Any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated!

for a recent update or two, when I am watching videos in fullscreen, at least like me, for example, when I entered fullscreen, the video should play horizontally, but after merely half a minute, the screen orientation goes back to vertical mode automatically, which is not happening when I began to use Firefox android months ago. Watching same website on different browsers, only Firefox goes wrong, so I think this should be Firefox's bug.

Firefox on Android - Active tab reloads the moment I go back to it from another application

Hello,

I'm running Firefox on Android 13 (Phone is Poco x3 pro). Running version 126.0.1

As soon as I tab out of Firefox and go to another application, for example, a 2FA app or ProtonPass to retrieve a password, then go back to Firefox, the tab will reload.

This basically means that I'm unable to log in to any site which requires 2FA or where I don't know the password by heart.

The phone has 6 GB of ram and I've set Firefox to have no battery restrictions, yet it's not helping.

I don't know what's causing this, but surely this can't be intentional? I've had to go back to Chrome because I'm literally unable to log into most websites.

I've tried reinstalling but no change. I deactivated all extensions (ublock & privacy badger) but that didn't help either.

I have a Blackview Tab16 (10" screen), which I bought last year; it was running Firefox quite happily until a couple of months ago. Now when I click on the icon, I get a sort of 'welcome' screen (with some message about a search widget?) for a fraction of a second, then FF closes and I get an error message saying 'Sorry. Firefox had a problem and crashed.' The version of FF is 126.0. I was told to try clearing the cache, but there is nothing there to clear! The tablet is running Android 12 / DoKe OS V3.0.

I have an 8" Blackview tablet which - despite needing to be plugged in to run all the time! - opens & runs Firefox perfectly happily. It's my main browser on my MacBook as well, and will run on my iPhone.

As per the title, but only on a few websites, Firefox gets stuck in a neverending loop of trying to load. The page never shows at all, just a white screen and a rapidly moving loading bar at the top of the screen that gets 90% of the way across to the right then restarts.

I've tried clearing the cash, browsing history, opening the pages in incognito, etc, etc, nothing seems to work.

Firefox Consuming High System Resources on Xiaomi Redmi 13C with HyperOS Android 14

I am experiencing an issue where the Firefox browser on my Xiaomi Redmi 13C device running the HyperOS Android 14 operating system is consuming a very high amount of system resources, particularly CPU and RAM. This is causing my device to heat up significantly and draining the battery life at a faster rate.The specific problems I'm facing are: 1.Firefox requires special permissions and settings to function properly on my Xiaomi Redmi 13C device with HyperOS, such as exempting it from battery restrictions or granting it "autostart" permissions. Without these settings, the app crashes or doesn't work correctly. 2.However, when I grant these special permissions to Firefox, the app then starts consuming an excessive amount of CPU and RAM resources, much more than my other browsers like Chrome or Brave. 3.According to the system monitor, the Firefox processes are consuming the following resources: RAM 372M, CPU 39.0% Process "org.mozilla.firefox:tab12" RAM 742M , CPU 20.0% Process "org.mozilla.firefox" 4.This high resource consumption by Firefox leads to my Xiaomi Redmi 13C device overheating and the battery draining faster, negatively impacting the overall user experience. I have tried various troubleshooting steps, such as clearing the app's cache and data, using a lighter version of Firefox, and checking for updates, but the issue persists. I would appreciate if the Firefox support team could investigate this problem and provide any guidance or solutions to resolve the high system resource usage on my Xiaomi Redmi 13C device running the HyperOS Android 14 operating system.

hi,

I AM USING NEXT.JS IN ORDER TO CREATE A GEOLOCATION TRACKING APP WITH LEAFLET. THE WEB APP RUNS PERFECT ON CHROME AND OPERA IS FASTA AND ACCURATE. (WITH HIGR PRECCISION ON)

IN FIREXOF IS MERY SLOW AND VERY INNACURATE

THE SETTING I TRIED (AFTER MANY TRIES) ARE

const useLocation = ({

 enableHighAccuracy = true,
 timeout = 10000,
 maximumAge = 0,

}

IN ORDER TO HAVE AN ESTIMATION O THE ERROR IN CHROM FOR A WALTO OF 1 MIN I GOT 92 POINTS OF COLACTION WITH CORRECT LAT AND LOG. IN FREFOX I GOT 11, FOR THE SAME WOLK IN THE SAME TIME AND ALL WAS ON THE SAME LOCATION LIKE I WAN NOT MOVING (WHILE I MOVED ABOUT 100 METERS)

A SECOND PROBLEM IS THAT WHEN A SAVED THE PERMTITION TO ACCEPT ALWAYS THE GEOLOCATION FOR THE PAGE , ON THE NEXT VISIT THE ACCES WAS SET TO BLOCKED.
