I just got the new Google Nexus 4 and have been running Firefox mobile as my primary browser but I have recently discovered a problem. When I download a file (such as a PDF) off of a site to read with Android's quickoffice, no file goes into Android's downloads app. I assumed the file was only bring temporarily bring downloaded for a one time view but when I tried this same process with Chrome mobile, a file was put in the downloads app. I installed a third party for browser for my phone and looked in the downloads folder it showed for my phone and discovered the files I had been downloading with Firefox in it. It seems Firefox doesn't display files downloaded in the downloads app provided with Android which is a problem because that means without a third party for browser, you can't get rid of them. (Petty for sizes but they would eventually fill your phones storage). Is a downloads folder provided with Firefox? Can the downloads be viewed in the stock downloads app?

Hi,

I had Firefox and Firefox Beta installed on my Android phone. This prevented me syncing bookmarks with my desktop Firefox.

I decided to remove all Android versions and reinstall.

First I backed up the Beta profile since this contained the bookmarks I want.


I cannot find the bookmarks within this profile. AFAIK there is no places.sqlite. Has the filename changed? My version was beta Firefox 19

Firefox on my android is a pig!

Not only is it 20 megabytes but I've downloaded 18 versions of it now.

Still so slow I can't stand it. I've looked through your helpful hints on how to speed up and none apply. It's not on my sd card, I have no other apps that are running that I can control. Delete apps, what the hell does that mean? I have no wifi available - and why should I need it anyway? Every other app I have loads fast in WiFi or 3g!
Why would Firefox startup time be determined by wifi or 3g? It's a pig because it has to load 6 different web sites on the startup screen! Get rid of it! I just want a Google search screen as a startup page. Why can't I get rid of your startup page?  I delete it and it shows up again.
Firefox for desktop is number 1 amongst world class browsers. The Android app just sucks!
Also this comment box impossible to edit on my android phone using Firefox.

hi there, i was really pleased to see that you offer the option to import bookmarks from droid, but after having done so my awesome screen doesn't look so awesome. it's just an ugly (and unorganized) list of every single one of my bookmarks i imported. so this might be a premature question, but will my awesome screen look awesome (with the nice thumbnails and such) the more i use the browser? or will the imported bookmarks not give up their spot? didn't really see any questions regarding importing since most involve sync. i have firefox on my laptop, but had accumulated bookmarks on my mobile browser that i didn't want to toss out the window. thanks for your help!

I've had version 18 of Firefox for Android for a few months, but never really got around to updating it. Now when I go to the about firefox page and try to update it, it says there are no updates available. I know that Firefox 20 is already available (well it should be since the desktop version is). How come I can't update it?

When I load a web page, it sometimes loads a blank rectangle on the right side of the page. Doesn't happen all the time, but often enough that it's quite annoying. Thought it might be trying to load a frame or something since it's always the same shape and location but it only seems to be visual. If I zoom in and out so that the rectangle is taken out of my field of view and brought back into it, it disappears. Same if I scroll down the page and bring it back up.

Started appearing when I updated to firefox 18 I think. Tried uninstalling the firefox app and reinstalling, didn't work.

Running android 4.1.1 on samsung galaxy s3.

androidの「設定」→「アプリケーション」でfirefoxの情報を参照するとインストール直後にくらべ、データの大きさが極端に肥大している。 これにともない、プライベートデータの消去のレスポンスが段々悪くなっていく。

プライベートデータの消去で、実際には履歴の消去が行われていないのではないでしょううか?
