My next move was to manually put in the web site address, and again just a white, blank page. I then went to another browser, manually typed in the address, and the page came up. This has happened now for about a week. Thanks for any help you can give.

So I was looking to add Firefox to my new windows phone. Heard great things about it. One problem, it's not there when I go to the app store. Every other browser under the sun is there, but the only "Firefox" browser is by unrated, apparently undownloaded, by Solution Labs, and it's $1.49 (I thought Firefox was always free). There are many, Many, MANY disappointments I've run into with changing to Windows, and I HIGHLY recommend against it. So is this just another one?

This isn't as much as a question as this is an idea to consider.

What I'm about to bring up are several ideas that could make the Firefox Marketplace awesome, a real alternative to the Chrome Web Store, because frankly enough (don't get me wrong, I love Firefox and its marketplace), a lot of the apps are Firefox OS only and even those aren't too great. Here are some ideas to make it up-to-par with its competitors:

Firefox OS Background Emulation Push for PC Developers Third-Party Hosted Web App Links

FIREFOX OS BACKGROUND EMULATION:

A lot of apps are mainly, well, links to web apps that could definitely run on a PC. A lot of the other apps can be run in an emulator (which should be built-in, but in the background) that opens whenever one of these Firefox OS-specific apps is opened. The emulator could run in the background, and these apps would run in a window without any of the complexity or fake hardware buttons that the current emulators have. If this feature was standard, that would be great.

Now the Firefox Marketplace could seriously compete with the Chrome OS Web Store if it's app selection was bigger, and a great place to start is the already existing Firefox OS apps.

PUSH FOR PC DEVELOPERS:

Mobile Firefox OS apps are really being pushed. That isn't a bad thing (at all!!!) but if there was an equal amount of push for PC apps, we could see a bigger app store.

I mean, these are web apps! There is very little reason that you can develop an app for mobile and NOT tick the little box that puts the app on PCs. Easy fix. And besides, with the emulation feature there is literally no reason to NOT export to PC unless you have a grudge or something.

THIRD-PARTY HOSTED WEB APP LINKS

This one will be trickier to start off, but eventually it could be really good.

A lot of major companies have powerful online apps, but do not want to make an app for the Firefox Marketplace. Why? "Because there are not enough apps". This is circular reasoning. They don't want to make an app because other people don't want to make an app because other people..... it doesn't go anywhere.

So, if uploading nothing but a .manifest file that featured a link to an app accompanied by some basic information by a third-party developer is legally acceptable, I think it should be approved. Actually, the act of uploading nothing but a link to a site. Not like a hosted app, because that requires a specific .manifest file in the actual webpage code, and isn't featured in the actual Firefox Marketplace.

Thanks for reading so far, and I hope I've made a difference for Firefox and it's marketplace ;D !!!

I am using XP and do not want the stub 34. I would like to just download and save the actual file I need because I often dump browsers to get rid of the junk and then reload. It saves me a lot of time and data charges if it is already on my computer. I just got discussed with Opera because will not let me set my choice of home pages and keep dropping it off their speed dial page. Besides, they use only Yahoo and I will not use that trash site. I hope FireFox does not join the forces of trying to force users to support google or yahoo.
