To recreate this bug, you need to be using mobile (on your phone), Firefox app, and set the browser to "request desktop site". The website appears fine on chrome or other mobile browsers, or in regular mobile mode (not desktop mode).

The theme on my site seems to break.

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..!

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.

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/.

The previous answers (ex: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1185193) all say to go to 'settings > general > home > top sites'. There is no 'top sites' sub area. The sections are as follows:

'Set a Homepage': 'about:home' Also use for new tabs (off) Panels (unclickable label) Add-ons (unclickable label) Content updates: Wi-Fi


Please let me know how I can turn off the suggestions from Pocket and Highlighted pages. I still want it to show my Top Pages that I visit. I do not care to see any recommendations. I use other services to discover content and certainly don't need it every time I try to open a new web browser window.

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?
