I recently installed latest Firefox for Android from Play store and the pages are usually rendered in a very tiny, unreadable font. I have Extra Large text size in Settings - Display, and the checkbox for Request desktop site is off. None of them have helped to increase font size. If I pinch out, the entire document is zoomed, so I'd have to pan left and right to read the whole line, and that does not help either. I'll appreciate a hint to make pages render in larger font sizes, like in less characters per line.

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.

As of 1/15/16 every time I open Firefox and try to log onto one of my Google accounts, I am prompted to enter my six digit code for two-step authentication. I have marked this as one of my trusted computers, and this is not been an issue in the past couple of years that I've been using two-step verification. I did not make any recent changes to privacy settings or cookies. Does anyone else have this problem, and is it related to a recent Firefox update?

Almost every time a page has a flash content to display the browser crashes and the "We are sorry..." Screen pops up. Its not just the web content, its seems to be the flash all together. Using " file:///storage..." to open a saved .swf ends the same; strange NOT all the time, but cca 90% still. On my old tablet with 4.3 jelly bean everything works perfect; pages are loading, content displaying, even the test-stored .swf game works perfect.

Something similar happened before on 4.3 jb, but deleting case, data and reinstalling the fox fixed it, but now not even that works... So, on 4.3 no issue, the same on 6.0 = crash.

I have the latest available adobe flash for android installed just like your help page said, new "reinstalled" firefox, no add-on except the h264 codec which came preinstalled and the pages continue to crash happily...

I installed Tor/Fiefox on my Android table, and eversince I asm unable to print wirelessly. The tablet sees the printer, but the message I get is:" printer unavailable". Since I am able to print on the same WIFI network using a computer that is not using Tor, I suspect that Tor is the culprit.Thanks

I keep getting spam webpages opening up which is why I uninstalled Chrome and came to you but it is still happening despite 2 resets on my phone. I can't find any add-on that stops them either.
