this is an annoying situation I encounter a lot. steps to encounter this problem: 1. open 3 or more tabs, for this example they are called tab1, tab2, and tab3 in spot1, spot2, and spot3. 2. go to tab1 and close the tab switcher. 3. open the tab switcher, and close tab1 by sliding it sideways. 4. after tab2 jumps to spot1, tap it to switch to tab2. 5. observe the bug: firefox for android skips tab2 and instead opens tab3.

this happens to me a lot and I often don't notice it in time. after this happens I close the tab in spot1 (tab2) thinking that was the tab I just viewed.

I am a blind user, and have both Talkback and Brailleback running on my Samsung Tab S 8.4 tablet. I have noticed frequent Brailleback crashes in Firefox when: 1. I'm asked if I want to save login information on a particular site. 2. I press Menu, for example, when attempting to share an article.

Is there anyway of minimizing this apparent instability with Brailleback? It doesn't seem to matter how many other apps are running, although I try and keep this number below 5.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Heyas..!

Is it currently possible to search using keyword bookmarks in Firefox mobile? I mean bookmarks that point to some URL with a "%s" in it that gets replaced with your search...

For example, I may have a bookmark pointing to "http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=%s" with the keyword set to "so"... So on Desktop Firefox, I can search Stack Overflow by typing in "so some programming question" into the Awesome Bar and hitting [Enter].

But as far as I can tell, these are unusable in mobile Firefox. Is there some option I am missing?

Thanks..!

I made the mistake of choosing 'always: when prompted to choose between Firefox and Gallery, on choosing gallery always instead of one time only. Gallery cannot find item, but Firefox could find it. I want to set it to choose Firefox, but it automatically goes to gallery. How can I reset it to ask again, or just go to Firefox always.

My phone is kind of old and Firefox doesn't show up in the Google Play Store, BUT... I have sideloaded fennec on my phone and it works fine. I've been using it for two months now. I have had a look at the minimum requirements and even at the apk, but couldn't figure out, what is keeping me from installing ¨the official way¨. So what's the reason, that I can't install firefox via the Play Store? This would make updating much easier. Thanks in advance!

Device: HTC Desire (bravo) Screen Size: 480x800 RAM: 576 MB Internal Storage: ~150 MB Android Version: 2.3.7 (Note: It's a custom rom.) processor: ARMv7

I installed FF from the Google playstore (the only version available there is 31.0, aside from a beta version). onto a Sony Xperia Z2 tablet, with Android OS.

When attempting to download NoScript, I get an error message stating that it's not compatible with FF 30.0.

Is anyone else dealing with this same issue? Also, I read that FF version 3.0 is still in beta. Is this still true as of 8/1/14?

Thanks

In the latest update to Firefox for Android - 31.0 - the "Add exception" option disappeared on the Invalid certificate page. I have done a ton of research and apparently no one is bothered or am I the only one having this problem?

The website is https://ap2.commercialpress.com.hk Android ICS 4.0.4 There is a "Try again" button and nothing else. The previous versions up to 29.0.1 did ask for an exception through a dialog popup. 31.0 does not. I did try all possible combinations of all "cert" settings in about:config.

Is it going to be fixed?

I have always preferred Firefox on my android tablet for a long time (Samsung Galaxy Note Pro). However, this problem has been there for a long time with no resolution.

Always, while browsing Amazon.com, particularly when clicking on details for a particular item, the browser hangs to the point where the tablet must be hard-booted.

I have followed suggestions such as clearing all private data, but the problem persists. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the browser, but the problem persists.

Help is most appreciated.

Thank you.
