I installed Firefox on Droid X using latest software OS update and Google Play to install. Browsed to a story on m.fanfiction.net and read 5 chapters. According to the OS monitor, the app used 43% of the full battery charge in this time. Using the standard browser provided on the phone, I use about 15% of the battery in the same time. What exactly is Fire fox doing while I am scrolling through a mostly text page?

Hello,

I have my Samsung S4 I9505 set to English language. A few days ago Firefox started using Chinese. I can't understand anything at all, so that I could not even use the settings menu if I knew where it is.

Can someone please tell me how I can set it back to English please? Nothing else on the phone changed language, but Firebox alone.

If I ask to view youtube after asking for the desktop site (request desktop site) there is a flickering strip across the bottom of every video. This also happens if I use the plugin Phony.

This has started only after I updated FF a few days ago.

Thanks for any help

I am fairly new to fire fox but was really liking it on my new galaxy note 8 tablet. However it updated in the last couple of days and ever since then it won't open. I have not yet tried uninstalling and reinstalling as I am not sure if that is the best course of action. I'd be grateful for any help! Thanks.

On my Android mobile Firefox keeps crashing multiple times a week. I tried deleting data, a clean install (but I am not sure if all application data was deleted), and I deactivated all plugins. Device is not rooted.

This seems to appear on large pages (e.g. many pictures, Desktop version) more frequently.

These are the crash reports: bp-0a35ae0e-e74e-409d-a620-628340180209 09.02.18 08:17 bp-3159bef7-e7b4-43ae-9eea-835010180206 06.02.18 18:42 bp-ed540d98-6cb2-4c3e-aaa9-8d3910180206 06.02.18 13:18 bp-3da6b15e-97a2-45fb-b9ed-126710180131 31.01.18 13:09 bp-532449f5-cc46-4df3-b21f-70a0b0180127 27.01.18 19:55 bp-1c5d01d8-64a7-4cb6-9f3a-e17040180121 21.01.18 09:42 bp-362c46f0-3f03-45a3-ba1b-f08900180110 10.01.18 17:06 bp-9fc548e4-13b6-4397-adbf-455570180109 09.01.18 19:37 bp-8fe750a7-8de6-4224-9670-60fd10180107 07.01.18 20:07

Any suggestions much appreciated.

Hello I have a Galaxy Note 3 which it's display resolution is 1920x1080. If I go to http://www.whatismyscreenresolution.com with Firefox I see that it shows my screen resolution 640x360 (even with "Request Desktop Site" checked and Text Size Tiny). I tried with other browsers and some of them were able to show 1920x1080.

The question is: How can I use Firefox for Android in MAXIMUM screen resolution of my display (which is 1920x1080)?

I have had this device ASUS MEMO Pad for 6 months and Firefox for Android has never been able to play any media or plugin content without crashing. I have tried playing flash with the appropriate flash plugin installed and without and it crashes every time (it should not crash even without the plugin - it should handle it).

Even HTML5 video and mp3 audio will cause a crash every time (with tap to play enabled or disabled).

I saved a webpage as PDF. The name of the file is showpost.php.pdf. The file name does not include any part of the name of the URL. Thus, it would be difficult to distinguish between PDF files. Should the name of the PDF file include the URL?

QuickOffice, which is preinstalled in Gingerbread could not open the PDF. I downloaded two open source PDF viewers from open source repository f-droid.org: VuDroid and APV PDF. Neither could open the PDF.

I booted to a live PCLinuxOS FullMonty CD. Evince Document Viewer, Foxit Reader, PDFedit, PDFMod, and PDFChain could not open the PDF file.

I did not try Adobe Reader because Adobe Reader is proprietary. It is not open source. Furthermore, a google account is required to download apps from Google Play. I do not want a Google account.

How come open source PDF viewers cannot open a PDF created by a formerly open source browser? Firefox will no longer be open source because it will have DRM.

When trying to play HTML5 videos embedded on a webpage in Firefox Android, there is no fullscreen button available (only pause and volume)... this with the fact that the Youtube mobile website will not play videos in-browser (you have to use the Android Youtube app) makes video playback very limited on Firefox Android... this is the only thing preventing me from leaving Chrome for good... any solutions? I can't even find any hint in the documentation that this is being worked on...

FF for Android works like a treat, except for one website: my.yahoo.com, where it fails spectacularly (not a single link works, not a single tab loads and the only way to get it to work is to select "request desktop site" and get the visually challenging desktop version on your relatively small screen). Does anyone know why this is so?

You have been refusing to reply to my emails. This is the eighth day I have been emailing you and that you do not reply. I received confirmation email from Foxfire&You and they reply to my emails. Let me know why you will not send confirmation email and why you refuse to reply to me. It cost me $199.99 to have Firefox installed remotely by a company that said they were the Foxfire support.

I have a new Nexus 10, and installed both Firefox and the Epson print app. when I go to the Rockville swim and fitness center, full screen, it will show me a button on the right side labeled schedule. clicking on that starts a download (it should simply show me the contents of the file like the real Firefox does). if I go to the download section of Firefox, the download is listed, but when I try to view it with the word app, it claims that the file is not present. if I try to view it with the Epson app, it claims that the app has stopped. if I go into epson print and look around, i can find the file and read it. But this is unreasonably complex. The same problem occurrs with crome, but crome doesnt appear to support full screen. this problem is not present on the apple ipad with default web browser.

Youtube app is not installed. Flash is not installed. The default Android browser (“Browser”) can simply play the videos inside the webpage, but Firefox simply shows a black screen with no in-page or any other playback. This is similar to user “yumiko”’s problem that has not been solved. Why does Firefox lack in-page playback of YouTube videos?

I'm trying to use Firefox 27 (latest) on my Samsung Galaxy NotePro (4.4.2 Kitkat). First, I'm experiencing bad lag problems - delays when scrolling pages and pages scrolling very slowly. Second, there is a very bad zoom issue. Most of the websites I go to are zoomed in and cut off tremendously. It's a little tough to explain. I also can't zoom out to fix the issue and setting the font size to the smallest does not help. I've also tried Firefox Beta and the same issues are present. Things look correct on Chrome and the other built in Samsung browser.

Any under the hood configuration settings I can try?
