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!!

I installed Firefox on Droid X using latest software OS update and Google Play to install. Browsed to a story on m.fanfiction.net and read 5 chapters. According to the OS monitor, the app used 43% of the full battery charge in this time. Using the standard browser provided on the phone, I use about 15% of the battery in the same time. What exactly is Fire fox doing while I am scrolling through a mostly text page?

I tried syncing my bookmarks on my computer with my phone. It worked the first go around, but ever since then it hasn't been able to sync any of my bookmarks. So I removed my firefox account on my Android device to set up a new one. Now both my computer and my phone want to enter the 3 sets of digits and provide a recovery key. I can't get a recovery key though because there is no option to get one.

There's no "manage my account" option under "sync".

I've seen this in the past but don't remember the cause and solution. Samsung had this issue once, and from what I've seen on the internet, the solution was to disable Android web preview, but that's not working. This problem just started on my Moto G4 Android, only in Firefox, only on certain websites where text is entered into forms. It isn't happening on this website. It isn't happening in Chrome or other apps. I've cleared temporary data, restarted the phone, disabled options in settings, but none of that worked Example: if i begin to enter, let's use "Walking is good," the result is "Walking is goodW." If I am swiping to enter, the result is "is goodWalking." The error causes the affected text to reappear in front of the cursor. Highly inefficient and a real time killer!

Since two or three updates Firefox crashes always 1 or 2 seconds after starting the app.

I've tested it also with the beta 20.0b7 apk... it's always the same... start the app - 1 or 2 seconds later I'm back on the home screen.

I have the LG P970 Optimus Black phone with ICS 4.0.4

Is a fix for this problem on this phone in sight? Cause I really like the firefox browser and really dislike to use some of the other browsers in the store...

Is Firefox not support correct UTF8?

I try to play with it already. I found: Settings->Display->Character Encoding = Show menu Then I go to Character Encoding (appear after finish above setting) It says Unicode UTF-8 but I think it's not Because it show general square character in all page of Thai language website (with UTF8 work on PC) including 'google' result. I also try beta because I found someone says beta is work with my language. But it seems it's already changed now because it's all square when I try it.

Is some range of character in UTF8 is missing? or am I must setting something else?
