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?

Hello,

I am experiencing crashes every time when Firefox sync starts, either manually from menu or automatically. Sync does not sync at all it just crashes. Same behaviour with both stable and beta from android play store.

Tried reinstalling, and removing android Firefox account. Nothing helps. After few crashes, the sync account stops working, with error "could not sign in" After that Firefox works flawlessly. Then at some time account works again OK but then it crashes again.

Since yesterday tried everything I could think will be helpful, including disable all extensions on my other devices, but nothing seems to help.

Device is a tablet running Android 4.4.4

Thanks for your help!

Ok,

My version of firefox has been crashing 10x's a day or more.

Sometimes, restarting, by itself, other times, asking for a restart, n other times, asking me to wait or press ok.

Why is it crashing on many different sites, from yahoo, to you name it.

I trust Firefox, but now not the reliability anymore. Are the newer versions compatible with avast? Either way it crashed, well b4 I added that too?

I not too crazy about the newest version of FF, since it includes automatic mic, cam, reading accts n on all the time, at start up n beyond.

"Tab Closed, Undo" Button Directly Over The Ability To Close The Next Tab. ALSO STILL CAN'T REORDER TABS IN TAB LIST.

There is a design flaw in a recent update of firefox for android. When I am trying to close tabs quickly from the bottom, the "tab closed, undo" button is now positioned directly over the X mark on the next tab to close the next one and I have to wait until it goes away to close the next tab. This is extremely frustrating and I am hoping this is fixed soon. It is taking 3 times as long to close my tabs in the order I would like to. The button just needs to be very slightly thinner and the X mark for the next tab will not be blocked anymore.

I ALSO WANT TO ADD THAT I STILL CANNOT REORDER MY TABS ON ANDROID AND IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE. PLEASE FIX!!!!

Just re-installed Firefox on a tablet running Android. Went to sync Firefox. At the sign in page on the Android (Galaxy Tab 3 with Jelly Bean) device, entering my details prompts an 'Unknown account' error. I went back to my PC and saw that the details are indeed exactly correct. I checked them on the PC and the password is right too. But getting sync started on the Android has so far proved impossible.

Any suggestions appreciated.

How to install and use flash on Z2 Tablet (KitKat)

Hi all, I know that Flash should be dead and also that KitKat made some changes so it´s not easy to use Flash but still I need this.

I have here an Xperia Z2 Tablet with Android 4.4 and Firefox Stable. I was already using firefox and flash on another older Android device, so I thought I install flash also on my new device. Was reading about this post: http://www.androidpit.com/install-flash-player-on-firefox-android-4-4

I was downloading the oldest flash for Android, installed, checked plugin in Firefox and well everytime there is a flash element (video or whatever), I just see a black screen. There is no "you need flash" or "you have to activate flash", just a black screen. Is there some workaround for that problem? Any ideas? Thank you!

Edit: Tested this with Dolphin, Flash is working there. Wish I could use this on Firefox...

Casting Flash videos from Android to TV

My phone wouldn't play a video in Chrome (default browser) so I have installed Firefox for Android with a Flash add-on, and the video now plays on the phone, but I would like to play the video on my flat screen TV. (I actually installed Dolphin first, following a recommendation in a different forum with Flash, but have now installed FF). The instructions in the FF forum for playing through my Roku device first say remove Flash, so that precise method won't work.

I also have an EZcast stick, but the opaque instructions do not help me to work out whether or not I can cast the video onto the TV, and how to do so if I can.

Alternatively, I could mirror the phone screen on the TV. Can I do this with the Roku or EZcast, and if so how? Alternatively, I can use a £3 MHL cable - I know it works, but it's less satisfactory.

Casting: the stick receives the WiFi and processes it according to instructions from the phone; one set up, the phone can be switched off.

Mirroring: the phone receives the WiFi and forwards the screen information to the TV, greatly enlarged and somewhat pixelated. Phone always active, can't switch off, and shows notifications, etc taking up top of screen.

Gifs/gifv/mp4 from imgur (possibly other sites) will play for little bit and then stop.

Have tried with Firefox for Android and Firefox Preview. Both browsers show the same behavior and will stop paying at random spots. On preview I see an error saying the video is corrupt. I do not experience the problem using any chromium based browsers and things play fine. 

An additional note is that things play fine on my PC with Firefox. If I request the mobile site, the gifs will play to the end and then the player shows the broken icon in the center of the media player

Hi,

I'm a Firefox for Android beta user. A couple days ago I did an update, and now when I go to a web site all I see the domain and not the full path. This makes no sense to me. What is the benefit? It also makes the browser unusable for my purposes. How can I tell where I am? If I click in the bar it reveals the full path, but I need to see it all the time. I looked in about:config and no setting changes seemed to change this behavior. Please help! I really would not like to have to use Chrome. Thanks.

Hello. My tabs, history and other data did not migrate upon upgrade from Firefox Preview for Android to Firefox Nightly. I have and Android phone with software version 6.0. I do not typically log in to my account. Both Firefox versions are loaded on my phone so data has not been lost. I am unsure if this relates but I am close to memory capacity on my LG Fortune (first version). Thanks for your assistance and volunteer work.

What is the highest version that may be installed like this?- I did not have a browser on my android TV so I downloaded android apk from https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Platforms/Android and installed it on my android TV. It was version 68 and did not work for meet.google.com and some other sites. I tried to install the apk of Firefox version 92 but on the screen it simply displayed "app not installed". What is the highest version that may be installed like this?
