My flame is super fritzy all of a sudden. I can't really use it, which is making it extra hard to troubleshoot. It seems to think I'm swiping at the center of the screen constantly, even if I'm not touching it.

I starting having this problem with a previous flame, but I'd broken the screen and the problem was concentrated where the screen was most damaged. This time around the screen is just fine.

The problem is sort of localized: if I open settings, the Geolocation toggle starts toggling like mad. If I hold down the power button, it immediately toggles the power off -- those are both on the same section of the screen.

Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this?

So, I have firefox OS B2G OS 2.2 and the battery is not lasting half a day. Started to look for what could be draining out the battery so I decided to unistall all apps I could, set calendar and emails syncs to manual and closed all remaining apps (except for owapp and telegram because I don't want to go through registration process again). Then I reseted the data usage monitor and after one hour with out using the phone at all this is what I have:

Others: 10.56 MB OWapp: 4.12 KB

So, openwapp it's supposed to check new msgs every 10 min so I guess it's normal, but where are all those other 10mb of "others apps" coming from when I'm not even using my phone. May this be the cause my battery is running low so quickly?

I don't think it's a battery issue because if I turn off data usage then the battery lasts for much more than one day!!

my best, jose.

I was just using the Firefox browser, looking for configurations (no chip on, first use... airplane mode and no wifi) and when I clicked on the cog icon in Firefox the device bugged. It showed me a message saying that the home screen crashed. Now the device boots (shows the LG logo, the animated fox, my carrier logo (Vivo, from Brasil) and the Firefox OS logo, but then it goes to a blank screen (it's actually a black screen with the upper bar appearing, showing it's on airplane and the battery. If I press the home button (or hold it) the phone vibrates, but nothing happens. If I hold the power button appears a menu with: "Turn ON airplane mode" (which is awkward since it is already on, but if I choose it it changes to turn off), "Silence incoming calls", "Restart", "Power Off". Down there is the "Cancel" option. All of them works, but I don't know what to do. Oh, I tried to hold the power, volume up and home screen buttons together when the phone is off but nothing happens. It only turns on when I release the home button. Also, the volume and lock (or power) buttons works and change the volume / locks the phone... What do I do?

The Phone is a LG Fireweb, bought in Brazil.

If you open this link http://edwardfrey.com/map/2015.html a map will appear with Markers. When my cursor hovers over the Marker a Title appears. If you click on the Marker a pop up window will show Journal that when clicked will open a journal page at the date indicated in the pop up and there will be a Route Map included in the write up for that day.

This Route Map also has Markers with Titles. Prior to 39.0 I could hover and see the Title, now I can not. When I move the cursor Pointer to the Marker it changes to a Hand, in the previous 2015 map the cursor changes to a pointed finger.

Example: Click on Marker -0- then Journal. This web page will open http://edwardfrey.com/peregrinating/period61.html#11 at 11 December 2015 with a map showing three Markers that all have Title but I can not see them.

I have my own mail server, using a certificate from StartSSL. Information about the cert and the host can be found here: https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=mail.nils-blum-oeste.net

I don't have issues with that certificate in Firefox. However, in the Firefox OS email client I get the error: "Unable to esatblish a secure connection with "mail.nils-blum-oeste.net" There may be a problem with your network or the server.

Shouldn't the email client trust this cert? I am using Boot2Gecko 3.0.0.0-prerelease on a Mozilla Flame.

Hi everyone,

I'm running Firefox OS 2.2.0.0-prerelease on my Flame. About four weeks ago, I received my last OTA update. I understand that there should be a new upgrade: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/b2g/nightly/latest-mozilla-b2g37_v2_2-flame-kk/

Build Number: eng.cltbld.20150212.043653 Platform Version: 37.0 Build Identifier: 20150516002501 Update Channel: nightly-b2g37 Git Commit Info: 2015-05-15 16:08:41 b388a235

I'm hesitating to flash it via adb, I don't want to set up everything from scratch again. I get that there haven't been too many changes on the b2g37 branch lately, but there should be updates, right?

Tried multiple settings and worked with Consumer Cellular staff. (Consumer Cellular is an MVNO using AT&T.) I had this working with ZTE Open C (FFOS 1.3) after some experimentation. (I should have written down all of the settings before switching!)

Right now I get a voice connection and Wi-Fi, but no data connection. Network shows as AT&T.

Here are some suggested settings from Consumer Cellular: Name: Consumer Cellular APN: ccdata Proxy: Not Set Port: Not Set Username: Not Set Password: Not Set Server (If Available): http://mmsc.mobile.att.net MMSC: http://mmsc. mobile.att.net MMS Proxy: proxy.mobile.att.net MMS Port: 80 MCC: 310 MNC: 410 Authentication Type: PAP APN Type: default,mms,supl Bearer (If Available): Unspecified

Another was CC LTE for Identifier

My wife's Android Samsung Galaxy Nexus only has ccdata for APN and IPv4 set for data and roaming protocols. None of the other stuff.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!
