I got new phones Motorola Electrify, both my wife and I. Put the new FireFox Beta on mine and I could not talk to anyone except as a speaker phone. Removed from phone, re-booted phone all worked. Tried my wife phone, same thing only could be heard as a speaker phone. Went back to older FireFox and same thing, only speaker phone could we be heard. Tried removing batt but unless removed Firefox and pulling batt did this fix the problem on both new phones. Any thoughts? Had the junk G S before, glad that thing is gone, but both firefox worked on it when the phone worked that is.

I don't know. Just what ever was in the download. Tried both Firefox app and both of them did same. On the Samsung S didn't have this problem at all however that phone has more problems than any phone I ever had 6 replacements in 9 months always Froze up. This one have had almost a month no problems except when Firefox is installed. My wife's phone same thing speakerphone only when Firefox is installed. What would video drivers have to do with not using phone Mic instead of speakerphone? Anyone else have this problem? How can I email Firefox only see a snail mail for contact no email or phone number.

in case this problem did reproducibly appear on two separate phones, i'd suggest you file a bug for it with as much information about the issue as you can provide at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi
