The mobile version is extremely oversized on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. How can I use the tablet version?

On the website "Getting started with the Firefox for Android tablet browser", the following can be read: "Note: Tablets with screens smaller than 10" do not use the tablet browser by default. For those tablets including Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7" or HTC Flyer, see Getting started with Firefox for mobile."

I'm assuming there is a way of changing this because it says "by default". I couldn't find anything on the topic, but can't believe the developers chose to make Firefox look like this on 7-inch tablets... Can you help me change the UI on my tablet?

I need to remove Topsites, when you have more people using same Android device this is a problem. If you can't remove Topsites, then we will just have to uninstall Firefox. I have no idea how this feature passed and nobody figure it out how it would be bad for everyone.

Next to some web pages' addresses there is a little icon to the right that looks like a book opened to some pages. When pressing this the page changes to a different view. Pressing the Back hardware button will take you back, but I would like to know how if you've changed tabs and read other pages. Thanks for your help.

So it would seem that there is no add-on or feature to wipe or hide the "Top sites" list from Firefox mobile.

If there is no built in method of removing this information, could I make an entry in the about:config of the mobile platform to remove this information? I am satisfied if it is simply hidden, but would prefer if I could delete this information all together.

Any help in constructing this script would be greatly appreciated.

In Firefox for Android, clicking in a text block on a website doesn't show the blue "click to drag" arrow on the cursor common to Android input fields. This is particularly noticeable on Google, where there's a single-line input box and if there's more than about 3 words there's no way to scroll to the right to add more. Am I just missing something? This happens on my Droid Bionic and Nexus 7, for the latest versions of Firefox and Firefox Beta.

The latest firefox for Android has an annoying "feature" that it trys to open pdf documents within the browser after a download. This does not work with the PDFs that we create internally (they display as white pages) so I need to disable it in favour of documents opening in acrobat as before. Is there a simple way to do this like there is on firefox for windows?
