I've installed 3 apps on my Android phone using the Firefox Marketplace and am having trouble figuring out where they are installing to? Only one of the apps (Etsy) shows up in the general application list on the phone. If I open Fennec and go to Tools->Apps I see two apps listed (Etsy + Yahoo Mail). The third app I've installed is Yahoo Weather, which doesn't show up in either location (but it does show up in an app that I've installed that shows recently used applications in the notification area (Yahoo Mail does not). I'm confused by the discrepancy and am trying to find out what is the expected behavior.

Are you posting or installing the marketplace apps from Palemoon? I do not know about the support of Marketplace apps on palemoon, I might assume, but that would be false info.

So, normally they create a shortcut on one of your homescreen panels and are listed as an app. I do know that it requires that you uncheck downloading apps from third party/unknown sources on some versions of android.

Another place to see them listed in the browser is if you go to Tools > Apps

Installing them from Fennec on Android. After a reboot they all show up in Fennec under tools->apps, but for some reason they don't show up in my launcher. I'm using the Search Based Launcher which is just a text listing of all apps that you can launch by searching from the home screen. Seems to be a launcher issue though and not an issue with the marketplace, since if I use Trebuchet as my launcher they show up in the drawer like normal. It's weird though, all apps show up in my launcher, including ones that I've installed via the Firefox Marketplace, except for the two Yahoo ones.

Thank you for your response though. Will have to see about contacting the developer.
