Hi there!

Firefox for Android is a native Android application (interface written in Java) so it uses a slightly different framework for add-ons compared to desktop Firefox (interface written in XUL). Because of this, add-ons from desktop don't generally work on mobile unless the add-on author has enabled support for both.

Here is the list of all Android-compatible Firefox add-ons: https://addons.mozilla.org/android/

Hope this helps.

Cheers, David

Thx, David.

I'm not a programmer. Is it so difficult move from one to another for the developer?

Is it costly process?
