upgraded to firefox 19 on android and I came a cross an issue, the button to go into multitask mode (makes the app take up half the screen) is in the bottom riht corner, it blocks part of everypage and it covers the keyboard, my question is, can I remove ormove this button to the address bar area, say beside the me u button.

would make more sense in that position!

Additional System Details

Application

  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Tablet; rv:19.0) Gecko/19.0 Firefox/19.0

Could you provide a screenshot if possible and possibly point out where what the issue is as this would help us out in an easier way.

Firefox does not provide keyboards. Please find out what keyboard program you are using as well as if required download another type of keyboard because as far as I can see, this issue is not a Firefox issue but a keyboard issue.

it's not they keyboard, its their before keyboard is opened, the button showed up as soo. as I updated fieefox to 19.

its on all pages including home, I have included a picture of what does when pushed, as you can see when pushed button moves to top of the app screen to maximize it again.


for reference I am using the keyboard built into the tablet, which is a samsung galaxy note 10.1
