Hello Doomtay,

Thank you for your report!

I couldn't reproduce this issue with those 2 web sites that you mentioned with a Google Pixel Xl (Android P) on the latest nightly build.
Can you please mention what device and android version you used?
Also, are there any other steps that you did when this happened to you?

I think this issue seems similar to recent reports about blank pages, issue that we are currently investigating

With the first one, it usually happens if I zoom in while the page is still loading. With the second link it happened when my phone in sleep mode while the page is loading. That's the only things I can think of
Can you please use Az Screen Recorder(or any screen recorder) and create a video while you reproduce this issue?

Hmm...even though I stumbled upon the issue earlier today, I can't deliberately reproduce it. I did say it only sometimes happens.

The only other factor I can think of is when the Firefox app is open for more than a day.

Well I finally managed to capture the bug in action.

Hello Doomtay,

Thank you for your response!
Unfortunately I cannot access the link because it is private, can you set it public for everyone to see the video? 

It should work now
Thank you so much Doomtay I saw the video, this seems indeed like an issue we are actively investigating.

I will close this issue as duplicate after this one
