Is the Firefox for Mobile desktop emulator still available?

Posted

I've followed the link in this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/792964 but can't find any further information on downloading the Firefox for Mobile Emulator. Could just be a lack of caffeine on a Friday morning...

Any help appreciated.

Hi,

I think Fennec 10.0b6 was the last release: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile/releases/10.0b6/

For Firefox OS details please see this.

Starting in Fennec 14, the user interface is now built with the native Android UI framework instead of the cross-platform XUL framework. This means that it's not possible to build the latest Fennec on non-Android platforms. You can run the Android version in an emulator instead, and we are also working on tools for desktop Firefox that would let it emulate the mobile browser.

I think the Windows version of B2G emulator may be crashing a present, but I normally use 64 bit Linux I do not think builds for that are available.

The Fennec 10 builds have no relation to the currently released Firefox for Android. You may be able run Firefox for Android in the Android ARMv7 (ICS or JB) emulator.
