Since upgrading to my browser only switches to landscape mode when I turn the device to the left. I prefer turning it to the right. Why am I constrained to left-turning to get to landscape mode?

+1, and on a related note: it won't go upside down either..

I don't think this is a browser issue... doesn't the same happen everywhere else?

yup, same happens to the messaging app as well.

Full rotation works with a few apps I use;

File Browser

Jolla Together app

Camera app

This is the same behaviour of Nokia phones and by the way I like it this way. If it followed the phone rotation, for example, you would not be able to display a picture upside down. Sounds weird, but it can be useful.
