In Firefox for my desktop (Linux Mint) I am able to enter in a person's name and tag them in a post or comment. For example, when I type in my wife's name it will tag her in the post/comment and alert her that I have mentioned her in a post/comment. I am also able to do this on Facebook's mobile site using Chrome for Android. Unfortunately this behavior doesn't happen in Firefox on my Android phone.

I thought it might be one of my add-ons (I am using Adblock Edge and Ghostery), but I uninstalled both of them and I am still experiencing the same behavior (or lack thereof).

Anyone know what might be causing this?

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.'

Sync is working between desktop browsers (bookmarks+history) but only syncing history to android. Need bookmarks!!!

Sync is working perfectly between FF 36.0 and Dev Ed 37.0a2 on Windows 7 and 36.0 on Windows 8.1 for Bookmarks + History It's refusing to sync anything except History to FF 36.0 on Android 5.0.2 (Nexus7) and FF 36.0 on Android 4.4.4 (Moto G)

It's probably been quite a few weeks since it was successful with the bookmarks too. I've purged lots of bookmarks to reduce numbers (currently @ 4918 ish) and removed ALL bookmarks from both android browsers. Previously, I've disconnected the devices from Sync - even reinstalled FF on them but the problem persists. Since that's no longer making a difference, I'd like to find an *actual* solution :)

Previously, it worked without issue (mostly) but now does nothing - no stall, hang or delays when syncing - it would seem (judging by the speed of the UI when syncing) that the data simply isn't being sent (or requested) from the server.

The synced bookmarks (desktop) still show *old* data in the Mobile Bookmarks folder from when they used to sync. This isn't updated when anything is added on either Android device (one bookmark on each as a test).

I've enabled desktop sync logs as suggested in other similar posts, and managed to get remote debugging of the Moto G up and running, and managed to get it logging (adb logcat) to the console. Tapped for Sync and it looks like I've got something of use.

Is it possible to provide the logs via PM or e-mail?

Would "reading list" items be tipping the bookmarks over the 5000 limit? (They're also not syncing, but I assume they're a BM "category".) Or a combination of pending unsynced items (from the other device) added to existing items hit the same limit? When the limit is hit, is *all* bookmark syncing simply aborted? (Seems to be a current symptom... i.e. no attempt made - see below)

"Interesting" looking bits logcat: I/FxAccounts( XXXX ) : firefox :: BrowserRepoSession :: Unable to extract bookmark from cursor. Record GUID MVNVrWILD_-T, parent null/-3 I/FxAccounts( XXXX ) : firefox :: ServerSyncStage :: Stage bookmarks received 0 and sent 9 records in 1.72 seconds.

Thanks for your time - keep up the good work!

Cheers, Paul

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?

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'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.
