Re: On simulator "touchend" fires, but not on actual device
thanks for responding. Unfortunately it does not really help me. (Perhaps I could get help with a workaround from StackOverflow, but I already did one myself - using buttons instead of swipe - at the cost of worse user experience). Both resources are more targeting web app developers, but this is an issue with the _implementation_ in Firefox OS 1.3 (at least for my make and model of device).
Notably the second has a section on "Handling the end of a touch" based on the "touchend" event - but my problem is that the "touchend" event never fires.
