Hello,

I have an ugly problem with firefox under android 4.4 on a Iconia A1-840 FHD (Intel): After downloading it, I can start the program, browse around, adapt the settings and so on, everything works fine. After I closed firefox once, I cannot restart it, however. I always only see a message ("Firefox wurde beendet", i.e. firefox was closed - I've got a german system) and nothing else. I do not use any add-ons at the moment; the problem is reproducible for firefox versions 34.0/35.0/36.0 (from f-droid).

Any ideas what I could do?

Thanks!

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.

I have had this device ASUS MEMO Pad for 6 months and Firefox for Android has never been able to play any media or plugin content without crashing. I have tried playing flash with the appropriate flash plugin installed and without and it crashes every time (it should not crash even without the plugin - it should handle it).

Even HTML5 video and mp3 audio will cause a crash every time (with tap to play enabled or disabled).

Untill quite recently I was able to use Firefox in the Samsung Galaxy Note 2's multi window feature. It has now disappeared. Why is this? Has the feature been removed on an update? Can I get it back? I liked this feature as it will was very useful for displaying flash pages side by side with another web. Please help. I have tried reinstalling the app but to no avail. Any help or suggestions would be great.

I used to have no problem using Firefox on my phone. I have an HTC One M7 with Android OS 4.3. As you may know, this phone came pre installed with Adobe flash. I would use my native browser but Lookout alerted me to a vulnerability on android browsers for OS 4.3 and below. Because of this, I installed Firefox. When it came to playing flash content, I had no problems viewing it through Firefox. About a couple weeks ago I started to notice issues with the flash content. I figured I needed to update Firefox so I did that. I still had the same problem. I also "force closed", restarted the phone, cleared the data and did a uninstall/reinstall. Nothing worked. I also went ahead and updated my flash player to the most up to date available. That hasn't worked either. I decided to test out Firefox on my old HTC EVO 4G with Android OS 2.3.5. Believe it or not, the same problem is occurring there so I KNOW it has to be something with Firefox. Did Firefox change something recently which is causing this issue??? Is there anything that can be done to solve this problem? I even tried installing an older version of Firefox (32 & 33) and still had the same issue. Someone please help.

This problem just started. Every time I try to load a page (in this case Gamefaqs), I get redirected to this search provider called openDNS saying the site is unavailable. It has links to the website and each time I click on it, it redirects me back to that OpenDNS thing.

I have tried loading the page with the default chrome browser on that phone as well as my laptop using both firefox and chrome and have not experienced that problem. Yet, the problem persists when trying to access the website through firefox mobile.

I have tried clearing the cache, uninstall and reinstalling, yet the problem isn't resolved. I have done a virus scan, thinking it might be some form of malware that is hijacking my search engine. That all comes back clean. 

I have never heard of OpenDNS, nor have I authorized it to become my search engine. When I go to the search engine settings, it doesn't even show up, yet it manages to keep hijacking my google searches and redirecting me from sites that normally work.

Please help me.

Logitech k400 touchpad scroll (and scroll wheel not working in general)

I'm using Firefox Beta 19 for Android on a MK808 mini PC (but this applies also to other devices when using any kind of external keyboard/mouse combo; I tested this also with a Motorola XOOM 2 Media Edition tablet with similar results).

My keyboard is a Logitech K400 with a touchpad. It should scroll the page when swiped down/up with two fingers. The functionality does not work in Firefox; instead I have to hold the mouse button and swipe with one finger. The two-finger scroll gesture works with Chrome and the stock browser on this device, so this issue should be fixable. This is kind of annoying because Firefox acts differently from other apps.

Also, upon testing this with another wireless keyboard/mouse combo with an actual mouse I found out that the scroll wheel of the mouse was not working. Again, it works in Chrome, so this is a Firefox only behaviour. (Actually this makes perfect sense, because the two finger scroll is the Logitech keyboard's way of emulating the scroll wheel.) This is actually good news, because now I am sure sufficiently many users will be annoyed with this bug and it should get fixed.

Note: in case this information is useful, the mouse scrolling works on the Firefox start page with the thumbnails for most used links, but not on any other pages.

Addition: Found the bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=686228

Apparently there is a fix, but when does it reach the beta channel?

Like the title says but first some context Since the horrible android browser REDESIGN this has happened, never before, im using the latest version and this has happened with every update since that unneeded and unwanted NEW firefox came out Before i could have up to 60 tabs in normal navigation, and the same amount in private, watch videos and animations at least ten tabs of those on each browsing section, the worst that could happen eas all private tabs would close and that was on rare cases Now it (closing)tends to happen 3 days or so, no matter how many on normal navigation or even private but the recurring thing is, opening videos sometimes work, but sometimes the entire browser crashes and with each crash all normal tabs dissapear as well and since you removed so many options including about:blank and other abouts that j knea how to use to recover pages, now is simply an entire session GONE and this has happenes 3 entire times already, the first time it happened i lost months of browsing i had prior to the dreaded update, they were gone and since, i try to use even less the browser, but is the only one with addon support(same addons i installed firefox years ago on android and guess what, none of them were active when the redesign installed the first time or worked and still the crash happened, so if none of your technicians can provide anything other than the boiler plate reaponse of " please update to the most recent version" (which both already are, firefox and android system) "disable addons" which they were the first crash, and reinstall(which i did when i tried to migrate to opera before i realized i can't install a good adblocker on their android version), then DO NOT BOTHER on answering(also, even webm format as well as many others seem to crash it JUST FINE)

I just bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 tablet. In the settings, the user manual opens a web page at the following address: https://www.samsung.com/m-manual/common/

With Google Chrome set by default, the user manual is displayed correctly in my language. But with Firefox set as the default browser, a web page opens with the message "The user manual is not available in your selected language." Obviously my language is not detected. In the Firefox settings, I replaced the "default system language" with "french", but the result is the same. Can you help me out? Thanks in advance.
