A forum I am a moderator on keeps telling me I am banned and this only happens on my droid RAZR. I have spoke with the site owner and am able to log on when I am using my other device, just not using Firefox browser and a few others so I am not banned.

Site owner told me to delete everything from the browser, but I have no idea how to do this, any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

With the update to firefox 26, another bunch of search engines I will never used were added to my browser. In earlier versions a search engine could be disabled in the addons menu, but that doesn't work any more... Is there any way to remove twitter, bing,... in this version of firefox?

The 3dot main menu icon is missing in ff26 for android. How can this button be restored?

SPECS: OS: Android v4.? (not sure how to find the version) Web Browser: Firefox for Android v.26

PROBLEM: According to what I have read when searching for help there is supposed to be an icon next to the bookmark icon (upper right side of the browser) that looks like three virtical dots which, when clicked is supposed to show the main menu. On my sceen there is no such icon for the main menu at all anywhere on the screen. (If someone can post instructions on how to show a screenshot in this thread, I could provide one).

QUESTIONS: 1.) How can the main menu icon be foeced to be shown? 2.) Is there any other way to access the main menu in the Android version of firefox if that "3 dot" icon is missing?

NOTE: about:config appears to have been crippled in the Android version of firefox such that there appears to be no way to list all the settings as once, as was the default view in the desktop version of firefox.

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?

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.

I have a nexus 10, which with a 10" screen is not really a mobile device. Unfortunately, Firefox is telling web pages that it is. Given this information, some web pages redirect to an abbreviated page. Turning on "request desktop site" does not work since I am no longer on the site I want and this button is not persistent. Thus the question, how do I turn off mobility notification?

Since I got my new tablet, copy and paste hasn't been working properly. Actually, it may be a selection issue.

When I try to select text to copy, it is difficult to get it into selection mode. When I long tap, it acts like I did a regular tap. When I finally get text copied, it's even harder to paste. I thought it was supposed to give me the paste option when I tapped in the spot where the text goes. Usually it just puts the cursor there. Sometimes it shows a single handle below the cursor. But it almost never gives me the option to paste.

Am I doing something wrong? I downloaded Firefox yesterday, so I know it's up-to-date.

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 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?
