After a fresh install, Firefox loads websites very fast with almost no lag. After a few weeks, it becomes slower and slower. Getting to the point where it wil take aboit 20 seconds to display the Top Sites/Bookmarks window. Then sometimes opening a page, the loading circle stops moving and it freezes the phone. After about 15 seconds everything works again. The only way I found to fix this horrendous problem is to go into control panel for Firefox and Clear Data. I dont like doing that because I lose all of my bookmarks. It seems the Cache always shows "0 bytes" so there never is nothing to clear out. I would like to know where this "Reset" function is for Android. I see they have it for Windows versions..but what about Android?

My phone is an HTC Rezound running stock Android 4.0.3 Thanks in advance.

It's quite frustrating. But with touchscreen keyboards, i'm always editing text to fix my typos. But with the last two versions of Firefox, they have introduced yet another typing bug. I will place the cursor halfway up into a paragraph to fix a typo or add a few words etc.. often times, especially when I backspace to delete a few characters, the cursor suddenly jumps to the very end of the paragraph at the bottom, often deleting the last couple of characters at the end ....irritating! It doesn't always do this, but it is quite frequent.

Does ver. 19 address this problem or no?

Greetings,

This is my first time posting here, so I apologize if my posting format is incorrect in any way.

My issue is that ever since the update to FF for Android around the first of the year, my open tabs are no longer being saved. The only way to avoid that occurrence seems to be to switch between apps using task manager - however, if you have to return to the home screen for any reason, the tabs are wiped out when you return to Firefox.

(Just to let you know, I don't use Sync because it screws with my Xmarks account.) Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
