I am attempting to use various Discourse based forums on Firefox for Android v110 and none of them work, I just get a message saying change to a supported browser. Is Firefox mobile supported and if not why not? I am not prepared to use Chrome.
My devices are a Samsung Galaxy A50 running Android 11 and no non-standard extensions or settings. Firefox is 110.0.1. My normal Firefox has never been re-installed it has just been updated all along from a very early one. Tablet is an ACER B3-A50FHD running Android 12 with Firefox 110.0.1 I do not have the app installed and do not want to have to switch to a APP just to follow some forum or other. Firefox should just work.
I have tried Chrome and it works and also currently Firefox Beta works but stable Firefox does not. I do not see any point in trying the APP as these other browsers work. I am not sure the Firefox Beta will continue to work though given the current state of the stable version.
I have checked the Discourse current statements on mobile browsers and it says only Safari for IOS and Chrome for Android are supported. This is a very restricted set of browser for a product to support.
By the way the suggestion to try the Discourse hub was worded in such a way as to infer I should use that if it worked. If that was not the intent then perhaps it should have been worded differently to suggest eliminating a device issue. Highly unlikely in my experience for a device to cause this kind of specific issue with a browser.
Firefox stable works on my Android phone, both as anon and a logged in user on this forum.
Since there is no clear reproduction steps, it’s tricky for us to track down what problem is happening on your device. Also, there are no other users complaining about a similar problem, and I know quite a few use Firefox for Android as their daily driver on mobile.
That might help: I experienced the same trouble 2 weeks ago with firefox mobile. CPU and bandwith were overstressed on my DO droplet. There were also a security problem. The issue is fixed after a check of running processes to remove unwanted jobs and configuring correctly rules on firewall
