I have some add-ons currently installed. However, lately, when I try to install an add-on to Firefox for Android, I get an error message stating that I must install Firefox first.

I only use Firefox on my Samsung Galaxy S5 and would like to install more add-ons. Is there some setting that would bring up the error message?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Michael

Because of the CISPA bill Mozilla made the "https everywhere" add on, unfortunately it's only available on desktops at the moment. Would anyone be willing to make a port for Android? I'd be willing to help with the bata testing.

I recently got an Xperia Z1 compact (my first android phone) and Firefox was one of the first apps on it.

Annoyingly gesture typing (where you swipe from one letter to another without lifting your finger) does not seem functional within the Awesome Bar (address/search bar). However it works perfectly fine on input boxes/fields on websites being browsed.

Is there any way to allow gesture typing in the awesome bar?

Cheers.

I have a Samsung S3, Android version 4.1.2 and using Firefox 25. When I was using the default Internet app, every time I clicked on a youtube or play store link, it would ask me what program I would like to open it with. But when I do the same in Firefox, it goes to the mobile site automatically. Can I change this?

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.

I use my phone in landscape mode all the time. I need an option to make Firefox for android permanent landscape mode rather than letting Android decide the orientation.

This option is available on Dolphin Browser which is my goto Browser but would definitely use Firefox if this was an added feature.

Instead of opening a text file on browser beforehand then can't read it anywhere else when I don't have a connection, I can't find a way to just download it, save it on my phone, and read it later. Which really sucks. Reading mode doesn't help if I can't access text files with other program.

I use an Electronic Medical Record program using Firefox for android on a a Samsung Galaxy Pro 12.2 tablet. I need to view patient pdf files on the tablet. So far, the only way I have been able to accomplish this is to download the file first. It would be more efficient if I could just view the pdf file on the Galaxy tablet without having to download it. Is it possible to do this with Firefox for android? Thanks.
