Is there an explanation why Firefox became slow after I upgraded my phone to Android 4.0?

Posted

On the previous version of Android (2.3; Gingerbread) the browser was really great, but now it's slow. The pages loading is fine, also the rendering of images. It is moving within websites that is slow. Firefox usually registers the motion but only moves when I release my finger of the screen. This is the only problem I'm having, but sadly our makes it unusable for the time being.

hello, i don't have a device that is capable of running firefox on android, so i can't give you specific advice, but you could try the beta version of firefox which reportedly contains many improvements (also performance-wise): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.mozilla.firefox_beta

This is a Samsung Galaxy S II phone? based on the GT-I9100 in your user agent in More system details... link on right.

The beta version is indeed much smoother. It doesn't "lag"in such fashion. Guess I'm a beta tester now. Thanks for the quick response both :-)
