I am writing an app for android (version 4+) that have to display a html5 page. In default it uses the stock browser engine including the android api restrictions (for example the <video> tag's unusable autoplay attribute). How do I force my app to use the firefox core (firefox for android is installed on used devices) or how do I workaround the problem? Thanks for your answer.
