Have had a lot of problems with Firefox on my Samsung Galaxy S2 running ICS 4.0.3. It will often hang, consume lots of RAM and overheat the phone. Sometimes killing all tasks helps sort this out but I normally end up having to reboot the phone (or remove the battery and replace) to be sure that the overheating stops. I've since wiped my phone and installed Firefox on the clean factory setting just in case some other app was interfering with Firefox's ability to function. I'm sad to say that it continues to behave in the same way. I'm an adamant user of Firefox and do not want to change browser so I make do but this issue happens at least once a day which is a bit worrying for the temperature of my phone and very frustrating since I have to reboot every time.

What's the easiest way to diagnose the issue? What steps should I take to figure out the cause of the problem? (I've already tried the obvious uninstall, reboot, install)

It works fine when playing videos from the http://nieuws.vtm.be site with in the default (google) browser delivered with Android. When playing these flash-videos within the firefox beta version, only the audio works. The screen remains black. I tried several videos and had always the same result.

I'm running Firefox 28.0.1 on my Verizon LG G2 with Jelly Bean, 4.2.2. For some reason video doesn't play. Any video. It can be vimeo, flash, YouTube... The sound plays, but the spinning ball of doom is the only image. It doesn't seem to be an outright fail since there IS sounds, but why not video? I'm not finding and solution or replicated error online.
