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 use firetox to browse youtube, FB, and some blog. But, when I use for a while time, I felt my PC slow down, and check task manager, it shows that Superfetch is using my disk to release some memory for Firefox, and my Firefix use 17% of CPU and about 5G memory in one process(there are more than one process), it almost use 99% memory I have, and suddenly the usage goes down to hundreds of megabyte.

I have tried disable addons, refresh Firefox.

Firefox is up to date P.S. It is hard to open about:memory because I will get stuck when it happened.

On the desktop version of Firefox you have the BASIC privacy tool everyone wonder about

I have browsed various pages of a website and I want to remove all those entries from my browsing history.

Though I DON'T WANT to wipe all my browsing history entries

Why this basic NEEDED feature from such a browser that claims so much about its care about user privacy has been forgotten in the Android version? Or maybe in all the mobile versions

We have company phones, we have relatives, we have friends. So NOT necessarily my phone will be accessed by me myself and I only

This missing feature is a big hole in hole in the privacy flag that Mozilla is flaunting around the world

After a fresh install, Firefox loads websites very fast with almost no lag. After a few weeks, it becomes slower and slower. Getting to the point where it wil take aboit 20 seconds to display the Top Sites/Bookmarks window. Then sometimes opening a page, the loading circle stops moving and it freezes the phone. After about 15 seconds everything works again. The only way I found to fix this horrendous problem is to go into control panel for Firefox and Clear Data. I dont like doing that because I lose all of my bookmarks. It seems the Cache always shows "0 bytes" so there never is nothing to clear out. I would like to know where this "Reset" function is for Android. I see they have it for Windows versions..but what about Android?

My phone is an HTC Rezound running stock Android 4.0.3 Thanks in advance.

Firefox crashes on almost every attempt to load flash content on 6.0 Marshmallow.

Almost every time a page has a flash content to display the browser crashes and the "We are sorry..." Screen pops up. Its not just the web content, its seems to be the flash all together. Using " file:///storage..." to open a saved .swf ends the same; strange NOT all the time, but cca 90% still. On my old tablet with 4.3 jelly bean everything works perfect; pages are loading, content displaying, even the test-stored .swf game works perfect.

Something similar happened before on 4.3 jb, but deleting case, data and reinstalling the fox fixed it, but now not even that works... So, on 4.3 no issue, the same on 6.0 = crash.

I have the latest available adobe flash for android installed just like your help page said, new "reinstalled" firefox, no add-on except the h264 codec which came preinstalled and the pages continue to crash happily...

Clipboard / text select failure after install (Andr Sams S10e)

2019 / 08 After install text selection does not work. Upon reopening I could highlight text but had no actions controls available.

After a force stop the text selection, popup menu (cut copy paste) and connection to the clipboard worked normally.

Duck duck Go search had issues on my old G6 when executed from this context(ual) menu.

Here (S10) it fails initially and now works fine.

Top search results led to a Moz support form I had no acees to. Other results (falsely) portray a continuous state of broken CB going back ten years (PC platforms and mobile.)

This apparent situation given FF didn't work at all (crashed on LG6) in mid 2018 meant switching back to Chrome.

Except probing to make notes for the eventual correct forum (here) actually fixed the issue.

See. Stubborn is a good thing. I was enraged at the thought of using Chrome again. Lol.
