This is on a new Nexus 5 phone. I tried using the supplied Chrome browser and was disappointed to find that clearing the cache (through Chrome or Android settings/apps), did not work. Old visited websites and tabs were still present upon re-starting. I just installed Firefox and it has the same problem. I have no bookmarks stored. Is there a solution to this?

Ok have no clue why but more often than not FF mobile wont play WebM html 5 Video

I know it can play WebM video as evident bu the fact it will play this Web M live demo

http://zaheer.merali.org/webm/

but when you go to sites like:

http://videojs.com/

all you get is a box with an X an it is that way on all of my sites to even if I only use the video tag only aside from the lack of costume controls and diffident size and URL the code I am using is identical to the ones that work

The files are 600k WebM but no buffering no nothing just a big X where the video should be. I am glad to see FF Mobile lets the video play where site designers want it when it works as it will let me get the pages to work rignt unlike Chrome Mobile that trys to open the video independent of the page but need consistency.

Right now no rime or reasion as to why some WebM will work and others are a gray X.

Hopefully some one has a clue how to fix the vids so it works

code is a s follows, opening < replaced with // so code would show:

//video id="videolayer" controls width="720px" height="480px" >

 //source src="untitled.webm" type='video/webm; codecs="vorbis,vp8"' /> 

///video>

The problem is also on Desktop FF, so it seam there is something wrong with FF over all WebM support

...

I have also tried the webM demo file from

http://www.webmfiles.org/demo-files/

And loaded that file and FireFox 4 can not play it.

FF4 is clearly looking for a very narrow WebM vp8 file format is there some documentation some were about what FF4 considers a good WebM that it will play vers a bad one most things render off?

On the previous Firefox browser I had on my Android phone, I set it to close all my tabs when I closed the browser. I've just updated to the new Firefox on Android and I can't find the option to do this. I have to manually close all the tabs every time I close the browser. Surely they haven't given us less options and features in the new version?!

Pressing quit in the app closes the tabs but it doesn't also close the app down on my phone.

Firefox crashes when Flash enabled

The fix of 30th Dec https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1038039 got Flash working again, but there is another issue. When trying to play a video that will run without Flash, Flash tries to run, and Fx crashes every time. This happens every time if Flash is set to "enabled" or "tap to play" in Settings. To play these videos, Flash has to be "disabled" in Settings.

An example site is: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b04yf8lw/spiral-series-5-episode-1

This happens in Fx v33.1 and v34.0.1, so maybe an issue that has been around for some time.

I have two PCs with sync configured and one android device. I can see that there is no problem with synchronizing data between PCs, but I cannot see my data on android device.

I have on both PCs ff 30 and new sync configured (I upgraded from old sync). I also tried to delete my old sync account, create a new one with same email and then configure.

I also signed up on android device to my sync account. The problem is that I cannot choose data which should be synced (positions are grey - disabled). And I don't see data from pc on android. On PC I syncrhonize bookmarks, passwords, and settings. On Android I want to syncrhonize passwords and bookmarks. What should I do to make this work?

We have close to 600 Android Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablets that have Firefox 16.02 installed. Starting last night almost everyone of them is getting a Firefox has crashed message upon launch. We have tried to upgrade them to 18 but that does not resolve it. So far, the only thing we have found to resolve it is to clear the application data, which in turn wipes all settings and bookmarks.

Hi,

Since the lastest 79.0.5 Firefox for Android version was installed on my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 4), autofilling connexion fields (logins + passwords) on every websites I visit is not possible anymore.

All logins and passwords are still there, and Firefox still maintains the list up to date (if I enter a wrong password for example, FF proposes to update its list). But this list isn't usable anymore for autocompletion.

This page on Mozilla support is not up to date on this purpose, because the switch to activate autofill function has disapeared from this version :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/logins-sync-autofill-saving-firefox-preview#w_turn-on-autofill

Here is a screenshot of what I see (french version), and no switch there...

Is it a bug, and how to get it back ? Thank you for your help.
