How do I get Flash to play in Firefox 14.0 on Android?

I have plugins enabled in Firefox 14.0 on my Motorola Atrix and also have Adobe Flash Player 11.1.111.10 installed, but Flash doesn't load in Firefox. Instead, I get the error message: "A plugin is needed to display this content." Switching my plugin setting to "Tap to play" instead of Enabled doesn't solve the problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled both Flash and Firefox, but that didn't solve the problem either. I can, however, get Flash to load for the same website in Dolphin HD. The website I have been trying today is http://www.greatamericanrestaurants.com/Carlyle/.

I am attempting to use Firefox to access a web-based ordering system that our company uses. However, the mobile view zooms in way too much, and the desktop view zooms out way too far.

I can pinch to zoom the desktop version, but the zoom doesn't stay as I click through the menus.

I have tried different about:config settings (maxpercent, minpercent, etc.), and the fix that would work for desktop firefox (browser.zoom.siteSpecific) doesn't exist for Firefox for Android, as far as I can tell.

Is there a way to accomplish having a set zoom level for all websites on Firefox for Android?

I have an S5 Active and sometimes the home button sticks and registers as a long press which brings up Firefox search instead of going to the home screen. Is there any way to disable Firefox Search so that this doesn't happen. I Love the Firefox browser but if this keeps happening I will have to uninstall it.

I cannot access my electricity account because my Firefox release is earlier than 3.6. When I go to check available downloads for my Asus Tablet which runs Android it shows the Linux version as available and when I look for the Android version it indicates it is for phones using Android. Will the Phone (mobile) work on my Asus Tablet and what is the latest version/release?

I can't remove or disable search engines associated with companies that commit grave human rights offenses through the Settings menu on Firefox for Android. What are my other options? Firefox has become literally offensive. Alternately, what are some free open source browsers that don't force these on me?

This issue is driving me nuts! I'll load a few sites in tabs, leave FF to write an email or check my inbox and when I return to the FF app the tabs refresh themselves automatically. This is especially annoying when I've visited a website and typed out a long winded paragraph, or filled out a form consisting of my name, address, email, etc etc..... and when I leave the FF app to do something else for a mere second and then return to FF, EVERYTHING I'VE TYPED OUT IS GONE thanks to this annoying refresh. It's also time consuming to be constantly waiting for sites I've already loaded to REload themselves. I've done some reading about this & the term "LMK" appears to relevant to this issue, now, is there ANY way to FORCE FF to utilize more memory or force FF to "keep open" somehow? Maybe an about:config setting?

I would very much appreciate someone "in the know" to respond back with ANY sort of fix or tweak for this.

Thankyou.

In this archived topic: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1117714?fpa=1

...it was said that improved Bookmarks management was expected in 3rd quarter of 2016. I asked about it in september last year and got some "upvotes" but no replies. Does anyone know if it is still in the pipeline at all?

PC sync is great, but I am really keen to have the ability to add nestable bookmark folders while on Android and to be able to save bookmarks to them or move bookmarks between them.

To me this is a vital part of keeping my life organised but I rarely use a home PC these days.

I would jump at a third-party solution too, sadly I do not have the skills or knowledge required to create an add-on. Could this be a solution?

Heyas..!

Is it currently possible to search using keyword bookmarks in Firefox mobile? I mean bookmarks that point to some URL with a "%s" in it that gets replaced with your search...

For example, I may have a bookmark pointing to "http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=%s" with the keyword set to "so"... So on Desktop Firefox, I can search Stack Overflow by typing in "so some programming question" into the Awesome Bar and hitting [Enter].

But as far as I can tell, these are unusable in mobile Firefox. Is there some option I am missing?

Thanks..!
