When attempting to open Firefox after this morning's update, I received only a message saying this version (armeabi-v7a.15) won't work. I've searched the site for advice about what to do, but the only relevant stuff I've found indicates that it should work on Android 4.0. I don't know what to do next - other than give up.

I have a Motorola DroidX. I downloaded the toolbar add on. It didn't get added. I repeated downloading it. It didn't get added. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled Firefox. I downloaded the toolbar add on. It didn't get added.

Firefox for Android really needs a toolbar. Why doesn't Firefox for Android have a toolbar like Android for desktops has?

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I have withdrawn all permissions possible for Google on my Android and positively have given no authorization for Google "Tap to Speak", yet recently it's mike appeared on my FF address bar.

I do not use it and its very presence is disturbing. It makes me afraid that it is listening in even without permissions.

How can I eliminate its appearance on my FF address bar?

I have two PCs with sync configured and one android device. I can see that there is no problem with synchronizing data between PCs, but I cannot see my data on android device.

I have on both PCs ff 30 and new sync configured (I upgraded from old sync). I also tried to delete my old sync account, create a new one with same email and then configure.

I also signed up on android device to my sync account. The problem is that I cannot choose data which should be synced (positions are grey - disabled). And I don't see data from pc on android. On PC I syncrhonize bookmarks, passwords, and settings. On Android I want to syncrhonize passwords and bookmarks. What should I do to make this work?

Regards,

Samsung galaxy 3 android. Downloaded firefox ap. Now every once in awhile the shortcuts I've added to the desktop of the tablet are reset so instead of seeing the text of the sites I've set, they all becone the generic firefox globe with no idea where each one will take me. I have to go back to each site and ask for it to be sent to my desktop AGAIN. Has happened three times in two months. Will not do it again but delete the firefox ap. Shame as we use firefox on 4 desktop computers and two laptops.
