It is a known issue with JellyBean 4.2 and Firefox 16. It will be resolved on Tuesday with the release of Firefox 17.

Re: firefox crashes on nexus 7 android 4.2 It use to work fine with android 4.1

Just wanted to note that I have both Firefox Beta (17.0) and Firefox (16.0.2) for Android installed on my Nexus Seven, and both "crash" after approximately 30 seconds of use. In this case, "crash" is defined as "exit back to the home screen, no error messages, and when you restart them there is no indication that you've ever run it before".

I have tried force closing, clearing data, and uninstall/reinstall of Firefox, and it still exits very consistently about a half minute after I start it.

Thanks in advance for anything you can do.

Firefox Beta which was uploaded to the store today will also solve this issue.

That did it! Thanks. The new Beta was not showing up in the Play Store, but a few "view details", "back out" cycles made it appear. Firefox seems rock solid once again.

Thank goodness, no more Chrome for Android!  :)

Firefox stable only crashes on sites that use Flash plugin, at least is what I've checked. (Nexus 7, Android 4.2)

Is there a bug for a fix on the stable release?
