Supported devices list Galaxy Y but play store says otherwise

Posted

This page here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/mobile/platforms/ lists Samsung Galaxy Y incorrectly as a supported device but play store doesn't agree with it. It needs to be fixed.

Hello,

Thank you for reporting this. I will send this off to a colleague of mine who works with the mobile department. As for now please see Will Firefox work on my mobile device? for the list of devices supported with Firefox 19.

Hmm I see the phone has 384MB RAM, 290 MB user available RAM when 512+ is recommended.

Hi mfcord:

FF20 Android which should have the RAM limit lowered to 384MB RAM is scheduled to be released April 2, 2013. Hope it works for you mfcord! Let us know!

Here is the release schedule for FF Android and FF for desktop (warning dates can be changed at any time for many reasons like holidays)
