I just got the new Google Nexus 4 and have been running Firefox mobile as my primary browser but I have recently discovered a problem. When I download a file (such as a PDF) off of a site to read with Android's quickoffice, no file goes into Android's downloads app. I assumed the file was only bring temporarily bring downloaded for a one time view but when I tried this same process with Chrome mobile, a file was put in the downloads app. I installed a third party for browser for my phone and looked in the downloads folder it showed for my phone and discovered the files I had been downloading with Firefox in it. It seems Firefox doesn't display files downloaded in the downloads app provided with Android which is a problem because that means without a third party for browser, you can't get rid of them. (Petty for sizes but they would eventually fill your phones storage). Is a downloads folder provided with Firefox? Can the downloads be viewed in the stock downloads app?

Mozilla quoted "Firefox has stopped development for Windows Mobile indefinitely. Thank you to our contributors for their continued support and feedback. The last release for Windows Mobile was 1.1 alpha 1 (download). We have stopped developing for Microsoft's mobile platform because Windows Phone 7 no longer allows developers to build C++ applications like Firefox, and Microsoft's new policies ban open-source software like Firefox from the Windows Phone Marketplace."

Will they now start to continue to support Windows Phone 8 because Windows Phone 8 now supports C++

This is on a new Nexus 5 phone. I tried using the supplied Chrome browser and was disappointed to find that clearing the cache (through Chrome or Android settings/apps), did not work. Old visited websites and tabs were still present upon re-starting. I just installed Firefox and it has the same problem. I have no bookmarks stored. Is there a solution to this?

Plug-in check says Shockwave Flash 11.1 r115 plugin is vulnerable.

when I go to the update button I get this

We're Sorry This content requires Adobe Flash Player, which is not supported by your device. This content can be viewed on a desktop computer or on mobile devices that support Flash Player.

I'm so tired of the confusion re Flash & Firefox.

How can I fix this once & for all so Flash works?

Thanks

To install Firefox on my phone I must first accept these permissions.

Hardware Control: Record audio:- Allow application to access the audio record path. Take pictures and video. Allow application to take pictures and video with the camera. This allows the application AT ANY TIME TO COLLECT IMAGES THE CAMERA IS SEEING.

I have stopped using Facebook Apps and many Google products because they what this sort of contol and basically I don't trust them. Why do so many apps need such spying power? and where can I download an old version of Firefox.android that pre dates this control freaky version? After all it used to work just fine without. Thanks Jonpon

How can I stop a podcast MP3 file from immediately playing (auto play)?

When I select an MP3 file from a podcast site instead of offering me the option to download or automatically downloading, it starts playing in some default player. I almost always want to download so I can play it in a better player that won't crash when I stop and start it often. I have a Razr HD and have this problem with Chrome also. My old Sprint EVO 4G browser would always ask if I wanted to download or play the file. It was great! Please help!

On my Samsung Galaxy S Blaze running Ice Cream Sandwich, I'm suddenly having trouble with Firefox Sync. It was working fine yesterday, and today, I noticed that an update to Firefox for Android was installed.

So I'm trying to send a tab from my phone straight to my computer, but no dice. I've already checked the "Accounts and sync" portion of my phone's settings. Firefox Sync is listed with the proper email address, and I haven't removed my phone from the list of allowed devices for my account. Oddly, Firefox Sync is shown as being deprecated. My phone literally shows my email address, and under it, "Firefox Sync (deprecated)".

Anybody else having this problem, and is there a fix for it? Any info would be much appreciated.

I can't remove or disable search engines associated with companies that commit grave human rights offenses through the Settings menu on Firefox for Android. What are my other options? Firefox has become literally offensive. Alternately, what are some free open source browsers that don't force these on me?

I'm using Firefox Android v23 now, but this problem has existed since it first came out. I found that when I click a link in another application, say email, it takes roughly 20 seconds to fully load a page. When I repeat the process using other explorers (Chrome and Dolphin), it takes less than 10 seconds. From my observation, when I open a link with firefox, it takes a lot of time for the firefox frontpage (showing most frequently visited sites) to get ready. Only after the frontpage becomes ready will firefox starts to load the page, and hence the slowness. Any solution?
