my firefox do not go to the web on my samsung s

Posted

Hello, Since some time (weeks?) I can't anymore use any firefox on my samsung s android smartphone.

It used to work, even slow. It may (or not) be related to some tentatives to use sync;

I tried to remove firefox, use the beta version, then back to the standard version... no way

When I lauch FF, I get the local home page, I can type an adress in the search/url place, but nothing show from there, no google search nor direct access, like if I had no network, but the standard android browser works perfectly;

I need html5, that is why I need firefox :-)

just tried to go to the faq link, no luck :-(

thanks jdd

Does it work with that?

Hey,

yes, please use the apk package.

Hold on, only if you want Firefox on Arabian.

If you want English, please use this: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile/nightly/latest-mozilla-aurora-android/fennec-14.0a2.multi.android-arm.apk
