When attempting to open Firefox after this morning's update, I received only a message saying this version (armeabi-v7a.15) won't work. I've searched the site for advice about what to do, but the only relevant stuff I've found indicates that it should work on Android 4.0. I don't know what to do next - other than give up.

How can I fix this "Adobe two-version" problem, so only the latest version stays enabled, the old version stays DISABLED, and/or uninstall the old version?

I went to my add-ons tab, and I DO, in fact, have two versions of shockwave flash, an 11.9...version, and a 13.9..., which, if I'm not mistaken, is the latest version. There is a "ask to activate, always activate, never activate" button for EVERY add-on. I clicked never activate on the older version, and closed the tab. I then tried to play a video off of the Web. It would not play, I tried another site with the same result, so I went back to my add-on tab, and the button for the older version had changed back to "always activate" by itself. It continues to repeat this, and WILL NOT stay on "never activate". Every few times I return to the add-ons page, THE NEW VERSION IS DISABLED, AS WELL AS THE OLD ONE. I've tried to uninstall the old version, but when I go through control panel, and bring up the folder contents, the old version isn't even there! I've done start, find, and typed in "Adobe", and the old version is NOT FOUND! Both versions keep changing back and forth on the activate button, and they both will disable on their own, no matter how many times I fix it! smh!!

Every time I save an image through Firefox for Android, it adds a JPEG extension, resulting in FILENAME.JPG.JPEG. Since most Android apps don't recognize JPEG, I've got to go into a file manager and rename the JPEG back to JPG before it's useful.

This used to be an issue with Firefox for Windows that was fixable with a MIME type edit, but that doesn't seem to be an option with Android.

It's driving me nuts. Help?

Hello,

I have my Samsung S4 I9505 set to English language. A few days ago Firefox started using Chinese. I can't understand anything at all, so that I could not even use the settings menu if I knew where it is.

Can someone please tell me how I can set it back to English please? Nothing else on the phone changed language, but Firebox alone.

Ok have no clue why but more often than not FF mobile wont play WebM html 5 Video

I know it can play WebM video as evident bu the fact it will play this Web M live demo

http://zaheer.merali.org/webm/

but when you go to sites like:

http://videojs.com/

all you get is a box with an X an it is that way on all of my sites to even if I only use the video tag only aside from the lack of costume controls and diffident size and URL the code I am using is identical to the ones that work

The files are 600k WebM but no buffering no nothing just a big X where the video should be. I am glad to see FF Mobile lets the video play where site designers want it when it works as it will let me get the pages to work rignt unlike Chrome Mobile that trys to open the video independent of the page but need consistency.

Right now no rime or reasion as to why some WebM will work and others are a gray X.

Hopefully some one has a clue how to fix the vids so it works

code is a s follows, opening < replaced with // so code would show:

//video id="videolayer" controls width="720px" height="480px" >

 //source src="untitled.webm" type='video/webm; codecs="vorbis,vp8"' /> 

///video>

The problem is also on Desktop FF, so it seam there is something wrong with FF over all WebM support

...

I have also tried the webM demo file from

http://www.webmfiles.org/demo-files/

And loaded that file and FireFox 4 can not play it.

FF4 is clearly looking for a very narrow WebM vp8 file format is there some documentation some were about what FF4 considers a good WebM that it will play vers a bad one most things render off?

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?
