Hi, it's kinda weird to hear too long too much of Firefox OS Phone, but could anyone can tell:

Is there any Firefox smartphone available for consumers now? If NOT now, When &Where can I buy a "real" one?

And it would be reliable to purchase a Firefox device from Firefox Marketplace?! https://marketplace.firefox.com/

Thanks.

Reflow text on tap-to-zoom

Is there addon or built-in way to enable text relow and font size increase on tap-to-zoom?

For example in competing browsers

- Go to site slashdot.org (classic version, not mobile one)

- Double tap any of article summaries

- Other browsers increase the paragraph text size to make it readable

On Firefox Android 20.0 beta nothing happens. The browser does not zoom in, the text stays small, unreadable.

Firefox, however, has a feature called "Pinch to reflow text" which does almost the same thing, but just it doesn't work as well and is unusable because it makes navigating around the site with pinch and zoom impossible: you do not end up to the same page position where you zoom in.

If there is no way to do this

- Is it technical barrier related to Gecko engine why this cannot be done (e.g. addon cannot fix the problem)

- Is it patent etc. problem why Mozilla would refuse to implement this feature

How do I disable the link hover feature on FF24/Android4.2.2/GalaxyS4?

I've noticed that as I'm hovering my finger over links, sometimes a page with a lot of links (i.e., wikipedia) an underline appears on the screen, corresponding to the link I'm hovering over. Sometimes, if my finger(s) linger too long, the link is selected - without even having physically touched the screen. While this is a really 'neato' feature, it can - and does - cause mis-clicks - which can potentially be a safety/security issue.

I have searched the device and have disabled all features related to gestures, yet I still experience this issue. I've also done searches in about:config (although I may not be using the correct terminology to find the feature), to no avail.

I'd simply like to disable this feature and go back to the safer, friendlier, physically-required click of the link. I'd simply like to follow links I choose to follow, not end up somewhere I don't want to be - or downloading something I don't want.

Thanks in advance!

Firefox: 23.0 Android: 4.1.2 Every time I switch to another app and the switch back to Firefox it reloads the page I was on. Which 1) loses the place where I was reading, and 2) loses the page entirely because if I've moved to an area without a signal. I've tried the about:config; accessibility.blockautorefresh: false recommended for the PC version of Firefox, but it doesn't seem to have an effect. The other suggested fix for the PC version, the RefreshBlocker add-on, doesn't have a version that works on Android.
