Using a first generation Canadian Motorola Xoom, rooted (?) or unlocked and installed ICS 4.0.4 IMM76

Normal Firefox (not the Beta) is installed and working just fine on my Xoom. On the last update (v 14.0) this odd thing happened: Firefox no longer figures in the list of installed apps on the Google Play store when viewed from the tablet. It is displayed in the ALL section as "Installed" with a notice : "Your device isn't compatible with this version". Should I be worried? At this time, I only use Firefox to visit Zap2it in conjunction with AdBlock Plus as an improvised Personal TvListing App. But I would still hate to loose my own fake App. Thoughts?

It's really obnoxious to see hundreds of ephemeral URLs that you'll never visit again on the Top Sites screen. Is there a way to make this user friendly so I can only see the URLs I typed. I am happy to set something in about:config.

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/.

Typing in URL does not work

On my Samsung SIII, after updating FireFox to 14.0, I cannot enter URL's OR search text in the "Enter search or address" bar. If I type a search term and and then select Google search (for example), the "Enter Search or address" hint stays in the bar, the page goes blank and the animation to the left of its spins indefinitely. The same applies to typing an URL and the using the "Go" key on the keyboard, the bar shows the hint, blank page and endlessly spinning icon... Tried uninstalling, including adblock and reinstalling (without any add-ons) but same results. The version before this was fine....

I just added Firefox to my Samsung Galaxy SII (SGH I757M).

Top sites shows 4 iterations of Google. I want to edit Top Sites. Is there any way to do this? Is there any way I can get rid of 3 of the Google references and move up other sites?

Every time I save an image through Firefox for Android, it adds a JPEG extension, resulting in FILENAME.JPG.JPEG. Since most Android apps don't recognize JPEG, I've got to go into a file manager and rename the JPEG back to JPG before it's useful.

This used to be an issue with Firefox for Windows that was fixable with a MIME type edit, but that doesn't seem to be an option with Android.

It's driving me nuts. Help?

I'm a little unclear about whether I need the product called Adobe Flash Player in order to view Flash content in FF Android, or if Flash support is built into the browser. My device came with Flash Player installed in ROM, but updates go to RAM and can't be moved to SD storage. Right now version 11.1 it's the largest app on my phone. I'm trying to determine whether I can remove it or not. IE if I uninstall Flash Player, will FF still play Flash content, or does it rely on Adobe's app for this functionality? Thanks.

I have a Yarvik GoTab 224 7" tablet with Android 4.0. I have installed Flash and Firefox packages from the Play Store but once I try to play any Flash animation from Firefox, it keeps black and doesn't start. And yes, I have enabled Flash with the instructions on the KB. What's going on? I can't even open Flash settings, although I can view videos from apps even if they use Flash.
