1) Please check your proxy settings:

At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button (Tools menu in Windows XP) and then click Options Select the Advanced panel. Select the Network tab. In the Connection section, click Settings.... Change your proxy settings:

   If you don't connect to the Internet through a proxy (or don't know whether you connect through a proxy), select No Proxy.
   If you connect to the Internet through a proxy, compare Firefox's settings to another browser's (such as Internet Explorer — see Microsoft's guide to proxy settings http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/wi.../Change-proxy-server-settings-in-Internet-Explorer). 

Close the Connection Settings window. Click OK to close the Options window

I can reproduce this by setting 'Don't keep activities' in Android Settings > Developer Options. Do you have this checked? This setting is only available on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
