Using Firefox on a Mac and just installed in on Android. I've synced, but I don't see a selection for tags, and I can't seem to find the solution on the internet. Is there an add-on for this or am I looking in the wrong place? If Firefox doesn't have this feature, anyone know a different way or program to get bookmarks and tags synced to phone?

I've installed aurora on my HTC Flyer with 3.2.1 Honeycomb, I prefer it to Firefox 9, but I can no longer search for text only a web page, and bookmarks, we used to be able to long press to remove know that option is gone to. I can only delete if I go to the bookmarked page, but some get translated to mobile URLs so do not show as ticked as bookmarks.

please let me know if it's just me and I'm looking in the wrong place or not.

very frustrating. scerpico.

Responsive Web Design http://bit.ly/f6TPB7 is an extremely important approach/technique/movement for making web mobile-friendly. Given that web mobile traffic is exploding and there were more smart-phones sold in 2011 than PCs http://vrge.co/wqOiED the importance of the movement can not be emphasized enough.

We have some significant obstacles on the path of fully optimized Responsive Web Design, however. Responsive Images (smaller images for smaller screens to optimize download times) and optimized CSS/JS (mobile devices don't need the same JS/CSS as desktop browsers do) are the obvious ones.

The most optimal way to handle responsive images and optimize CSS/JS would be on the server-side. However, server-side does not have enough information about device capabilities, resulting in emergence of all kinds of cruft-y solutions (e.g. using
's for tags etc.) that should not exist.

However, browsers do know a lot about devices they are running on and could pass that information to servers as part of the initial request, making it possible for servers to get way smarter than what we have now.

Something as simple as if Firefox passed along device's width/height information as part of the initial request headers would go a very very long way, making it possible to make a lot of intelligent decisions on the server-side (eventually allowing "media-queries-like" systems on the server-side).

Since some proxy servers cut-off or disable custom headers, probably the safest way to add this is to add width/height information in the user-agent header.
