The final push to start using Firefox over Chrome on Android might finally be thanks to the enormous selection of add-ons (Firefox’s version of extensions) coming out next month. Chrome doesn’t offer native support for extensions in its mobile app. Also, better security.

    Does anyone else have the problem that scrolling on a page becomes kinda laggy when there are more than usual elements on a webpage? For example, some website for streaming series. As soon as I scroll down where a lot of small buttons with episode numbers on them are rendered, Firefox on Android becomes noticeably laggy for me.

    Other than that I really like it but that little problem annoys the hell out of me.

      Yes it does lag much more than chrome, even on S23U. Even with noscript enabled, actually. I am trying to get used to it for the last few weeks cause goddam noscript makes internet a better place.

          Confirmed laggy for me running Fennec on Android 13 on my S21.

          I’ve encountered this laggy scrolling on other websites as well since switching to FF ~4 months ago.

          I tried it. It appears to be an optimization issue. Firefox struggles a bit for some reason but not Chrome. Probably can be reported on the fenix repo for Firefox.

      Chromium based browsers on Android always have been more snappy than FF. That said I have primarily used FF for around a year and it is alright. Whenever something does not behave well, I use Vivaldi.
