I have had this device ASUS MEMO Pad for 6 months and Firefox for Android has never been able to play any media or plugin content without crashing. I have tried playing flash with the appropriate flash plugin installed and without and it crashes every time (it should not crash even without the plugin - it should handle it).

Even HTML5 video and mp3 audio will cause a crash every time (with tap to play enabled or disabled).

If I ask to view youtube after asking for the desktop site (request desktop site) there is a flickering strip across the bottom of every video. This also happens if I use the plugin Phony.

This has started only after I updated FF a few days ago.

Thanks for any help

When using Firefox mobile it used to ask "Complete action using" and then give a choice of Firefox or Google Play when I tried to open certain files. When one made the choice it would also give the choice of "just once" or "always". I accidentally opted for "always" the last time now it does it automatically whether I want to or not. I have tried to reset by clearing the apps defaults, by resetting all apps preferences from within android apps settings and by clearing Firefox's privacy settings. Still no joy, I have even reinstalled the Firefox app but even though I uninstalled first these settings seem to have been retained in android somewhere. Does anyone know how I can delete the file type associations so that I get the original choice again?

Dear Sir or Madam

When I open the website https://settings.adobe.com/flashplayer/mobile/ to costumize the settings of flash player I get some weird symbols but nothing more.

I have tried disabling all addons I have but it didn't work also the theme I am using. Then I reinstalled the flash but still the issue kept continuing. Then I reinstalled the Firefox but still no solution.

I can send a ss related to this issue if needed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Yours sincerely.

I'm trying to use Firefox 27 (latest) on my Samsung Galaxy NotePro (4.4.2 Kitkat). First, I'm experiencing bad lag problems - delays when scrolling pages and pages scrolling very slowly. Second, there is a very bad zoom issue. Most of the websites I go to are zoomed in and cut off tremendously. It's a little tough to explain. I also can't zoom out to fix the issue and setting the font size to the smallest does not help. I've also tried Firefox Beta and the same issues are present. Things look correct on Chrome and the other built in Samsung browser.

Any under the hood configuration settings I can try?

I have a new Nexus 10, and installed both Firefox and the Epson print app. when I go to the Rockville swim and fitness center, full screen, it will show me a button on the right side labeled schedule. clicking on that starts a download (it should simply show me the contents of the file like the real Firefox does). if I go to the download section of Firefox, the download is listed, but when I try to view it with the word app, it claims that the file is not present. if I try to view it with the Epson app, it claims that the app has stopped. if I go into epson print and look around, i can find the file and read it. But this is unreasonably complex. The same problem occurrs with crome, but crome doesnt appear to support full screen. this problem is not present on the apple ipad with default web browser.

Firefox crashed yesterday but restarted alright with bookmarks in place. This morning after a reboot they are completely missing and the Firefox interface is different as well. I used ES File Manager to navigate to the profile folder but do not know how to recover bookmarks in Android. I would also like to understand why this happened to avoid a repeat of the problem.

FF for Android works like a treat, except for one website: my.yahoo.com, where it fails spectacularly (not a single link works, not a single tab loads and the only way to get it to work is to select "request desktop site" and get the visually challenging desktop version on your relatively small screen). Does anyone know why this is so?

I've been having some random crashes of Android FF Beta on android 4.2.1

The crashes seem to happen on a wide-range of websites, with no particular causes. Looking at the about:crashes, it doesn't seem to be a specific reason in the crash report. For example, one of the latest crash reports is 824965b4-3b0f-4a81-846f-d7c062140117.

Any idea what could be causing these problems? Thanks!

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?
