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 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 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.

The problem is simple when double tapping ff don't zoom-in, only zoom-out. It's essential functionality why you guys force me to use Opera for example, when can use firefox and sync it with my desktop version. Eventually i might migrate on desktop browser that can sync with mobile.

P.S. "Firefox: trusted, flexible, fast" seriously, is that you call flexible?!

If a friend or a page I have 'liked' posts a link to another website on the newsfeed I often don't have the option to share. Just like or comment. If I go to the Facebook app the same post has the option to share. I am trying to use Facebook in Firefox so that I don't need the Facebook app.

I am unable to turn off url auto complet. I tried using "about:config" and turned the "browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled" to "false", but without any change. I DON'T WANT AUTOCOMPLETE! It is making me crazy because every time I start to type a URL it automatically completes it to something I don't want. Then I have to delete the URL and type again before I can browse.
