Posted

My Nexus 7 has just performed an update to Jelly Bean 4.2 now whenever I use Firs Fox it randomly closes the browser after a short amount of time, sometimes as short as 5 seconds, after it closes it returns me to the home screen for my device.

Hello

Thanks for the quick reply :) I suppose I would have known that had I bothered to install Fire Fox before the Jelly Bean update lol.

Thanks again I will download the updated version next week.
