I've heard a lot of good things about Microsoft opening up their platforms for developers. I literally used Firefox, Firefox sync, and enjoy Firefox as my default browser. I've seen a few posts saying Mozilla isn't currently developing for Windows Phone and I'm just wondering why. I know there is a demand for it. It would dominate the Windows Phone market for sure. I'd really like to see it come to the platform so can someone explain why specifically it isn't? What restrictions are still being faced if any?

I clicked on link to a file in FF mobile for Android, popup appears with suggested applications to open links to files with such extension. I selected one app and clicked "remember selection". But later I realized that I select wrong application and tried to reset this association, but I can't find it anywhere. I even not sure is it a standard Android "extension-application" association or not. But I looked up application settings for FF and its association list is empty. So question is - where I can reset association between extension of file, opened by link from FF and some application?

Both devices give me a code but in my tablet I don't know where to type that code.

In Firefox for my desktop (Linux Mint) I am able to enter in a person's name and tag them in a post or comment. For example, when I type in my wife's name it will tag her in the post/comment and alert her that I have mentioned her in a post/comment. I am also able to do this on Facebook's mobile site using Chrome for Android. Unfortunately this behavior doesn't happen in Firefox on my Android phone.

I thought it might be one of my add-ons (I am using Adblock Edge and Ghostery), but I uninstalled both of them and I am still experiencing the same behavior (or lack thereof).

Anyone know what might be causing this?

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++

I have downloaded several types of audio files on my android, and they play rightaway, but they are not able to be found anywhere in the phone after I STOP the playback.

This happens with any file, how can I locate the file once downloaded, or how can I change settings to have the file to download to my SD Card instead?
