HTML5 Custom Homescreen Icon + Mobile Web App

I've been learning HTML5 Game Development, and have a question about Firefox for Android: How would I get a custom icon for a bookmark added to the home screen? It looks like Firefox either uses a favicon, or a default star.

On iOS Safari, I was able to accomplish this using <link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="image.png" />, and the functionality seems to carry over to Google Chrome.

I tried using this code for a custom favicon on a specific page: <link rel='shortcut icon' type='image/x-icon' href='favicon.ico' /> but it only works when I view the file directly on the computer. When accessing the page through Apache, there is no favicon.

My other question was about Mobile Web App functionality. In iOS Safari and Google Chrome for Android, adding "apple-mobile-web-app-capable" or "mobile-web-app-capable" lets the webpage run as a fullscreen web app when saved to the homescreen. Firefox just opens it like a normal bookmark.

Any help is appreciated. I'm learning from the book 'HTML5 Game Development for Dummies.'

I've had a working Firefox sync for a little while. I decided that I want to use a different email address so I delete my account from computer and continue to make a new one. When asked to verify, I go to the link and I get a page that says Firefox accounts need JavaScript. I tried opening this link in different browsers and on my phone but same error. Can't get my account verified. Maybe its not important, but my first account was just a forwarding address to what I set my new account email. I.e. my old address was <name>@<domain>.com and my address is <name>@<domain>.ch, the .com forwards to the .CH. Maybe the confuses Firefox sync? And JavaScript is definitely not disabled. I checked aboutconfig.

Recently the Add to Firefox button is missing from the share menu. Since I have used other share methods it no longer appears in the 3 options at the top of the main menu and I understand that this contains the last share methods used. However, I do not see the Add to Firefox option anywhere even in the long list of all share methods after tapping the main share button. I rely on this feature a lot. Where has it gone and how do I get it back?

I am using an HTC D316d (CDMA) with Android 4.3 in China. Until v36, Firefox used to work without problems, but v37 crashed a few seconds after start. I have reset all the data, but no avail. Then, I installed the nightly version (38 at that time), and it ran without problems. It is updating every day, and now, with v41, the same problem starts again, Firefox crashes at the first page loaded. Since I have set the bookmark page as my home, I can open Firefox. It will crash at some seconds of displaying web pages like de.yahoo.com or www.google.com. There is no error message, the phone just returns to it home page. Any idea how to overcome the problem?

I do some freelance web design. I just replaced my laptop with a tablet last year (Samsung Galaxy 10.5 S). I want to do web development on it - I work from a terminal doing Ruby on Rails and web development all the time. It would be awesome to have the F12 developer tools handy in Firefox for Android, but sadly I've waited for a while and there is no indication they will ever appear.

Do NOT suggest using a remote debugger - I'm not testing the layout of pages on my tablet, I want to be able to profile, view source (without an add-on) and such. I have seen this exact question marked closed by suggesting remote debugging, and I fail to see how telling me to use my tablet next to a laptop or desktop is a solution. Telling me to carry a second device means I don't need the tablet at all, when my intention is to ONLY use the tablet.

My tablet has a huge screen resolution and a powerful processor - more powerful than some laptops? Why is Firefox for Android neutered? I would understand disabling it by default to help those with less powerful devices, but why remove something that would add a competitive edge to your product, and is already integrated in desktop Firefox and has been for years? I prefer Firefox, but if Chrome adds web developer tools for Android first, I'll switch to Chrome.

There are people today using a tablet as their sole computing device. Please do not relegate us to a second-class Firefox experience!

Thanks, Ryan
