Firefox for Android slow and crashes frequently

Posted

my phone is a Motorola RAZR Maxx HD with Android 4.1.2 from Verizon. I've been using Firefox on my PC for years and would really like to use it on my phone, but I've about had it. Its constantly crashing and running slow. I kill tasks, and it still runs slow. Reboot the phone and still same issues. If I open chrome, it runs great. Pages load fast and it never locks up. What's going on and can I fix it? I really don't want to switch to Chrome because I really like the Sync function.

If you are able to go to about:crashes on the browser to pull up crash reports, it would help you.

Sorry, I didn't check this for a long time. Just been using Chrome most of the time. I pulled up the crash reports, but I don't see how that helps me. There are only three reports there (though I know it's crashed many more times). Its just gibberish to me. Are you wanting me to upload the reports?

All those crashes are rather old. The first two are crashes in random parts of Android OS. The other is a JavaScript crash that is known.

Is is possible you were experiencing hangs? Something like http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/x-gourmetandroid/image001.jpg ?
