I installed Firefox on Droid X using latest software OS update and Google Play to install. Browsed to a story on m.fanfiction.net and read 5 chapters. According to the OS monitor, the app used 43% of the full battery charge in this time. Using the standard browser provided on the phone, I use about 15% of the battery in the same time. What exactly is Fire fox doing while I am scrolling through a mostly text page?

Hello,

I am experiencing crashes every time when Firefox sync starts, either manually from menu or automatically. Sync does not sync at all it just crashes. Same behaviour with both stable and beta from android play store.

Tried reinstalling, and removing android Firefox account. Nothing helps. After few crashes, the sync account stops working, with error "could not sign in" After that Firefox works flawlessly. Then at some time account works again OK but then it crashes again.

Since yesterday tried everything I could think will be helpful, including disable all extensions on my other devices, but nothing seems to help.

Device is a tablet running Android 4.4.4

Thanks for your help!

Hi.

Thia is about Firefox on Android.

I use browser tabs to keep a visual list of topics I am working with at the moment. One-click move froma tab to another and the continuoua visual view of tabs are essential.

This morning FF android updated and moved tabs our of sight and out of mind. Also, switching between tabs was one click, one finger movement. Now it is at least two.

There is a way to get tabs back. It is called Chrome. Is there another way with Firefox?

W10 version on laptop looks still ok .. so far.

Ok,

My version of firefox has been crashing 10x's a day or more.

Sometimes, restarting, by itself, other times, asking for a restart, n other times, asking me to wait or press ok.

Why is it crashing on many different sites, from yahoo, to you name it.

I trust Firefox, but now not the reliability anymore. Are the newer versions compatible with avast? Either way it crashed, well b4 I added that too?

I not too crazy about the newest version of FF, since it includes automatic mic, cam, reading accts n on all the time, at start up n beyond.

At the sign in page on the Android (Galaxy Tab 3 with Jelly Bean) device, entering my details prompts an 'Unknown account' error. I went back to my PC and saw that the details are indeed exactly correct. I checked them on the PC and the password is right too. But getting sync started on the Android has so far proved impossible.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi all, I know that Flash should be dead and also that KitKat made some changes so it´s not easy to use Flash but still I need this.

I have here an Xperia Z2 Tablet with Android 4.4 and Firefox Stable. I was already using firefox and flash on another older Android device, so I thought I install flash also on my new device. Was reading about this post: http://www.androidpit.com/install-flash-player-on-firefox-android-4-4

I was downloading the oldest flash for Android, installed, checked plugin in Firefox and well everytime there is a flash element (video or whatever), I just see a black screen. There is no "you need flash" or "you have to activate flash", just a black screen. Is there some workaround for that problem? Any ideas? Thank you!

Edit: Tested this with Dolphin, Flash is working there. Wish I could use this on Firefox...

So I installed Firefox on my computer and I am trying to finish setting up my Firefox account. It keeps asking me to link my phone number and to install Firefox on it, so I did by going onto Google Play Store and installing the browser. Even though I logged onto my Firefox account via my phone, Firefox on my computer still asks me to set it up on my phone. Because of this, I can't finish registering my account.

Even clicking the link that was sent via SMS doesn't work; it opens in Firefox but nothing happens on the other end.

I tried refreshing the awaiting confirmation page, it just brings me back to the page shown in the first image.

I closed Firefox, re-opened it, signed out of my account, and signed back in again. It keeps asking me for a phone number.

I tried all the steps in this article, and it doesn't work either: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/im-having-problems-confirming-my-firefox-account

Here are the screenshots of the pages (uploading them via the form doesn't work)

My phone wouldn't play a video in Chrome (default browser) so I have installed Firefox for Android with a Flash add-on, and the video now plays on the phone, but I would like to play the video on my flat screen TV. (I actually installed Dolphin first, following a recommendation in a different forum with Flash, but have now installed FF). The instructions in the FF forum for playing through my Roku device first say remove Flash, so that precise method won't work.

I also have an EZcast stick, but the opaque instructions do not help me to work out whether or not I can cast the video onto the TV, and how to do so if I can.

Alternatively, I could mirror the phone screen on the TV. Can I do this with the Roku or EZcast, and if so how? Alternatively, I can use a £3 MHL cable - I know it works, but it's less satisfactory.

Casting: the stick receives the WiFi and processes it according to instructions from the phone; one set up, the phone can be switched off.

Mirroring: the phone receives the WiFi and forwards the screen information to the TV, greatly enlarged and somewhat pixelated. Phone always active, can't switch off, and shows notifications, etc taking up top of screen.

Gifs/gifv/mp4 from imgur (possibly other sites) will play for little bit and then stop.

Have tried with Firefox for Android and Firefox Preview. Both browsers show the same behavior and will stop paying at random spots. On preview I see an error saying the video is corrupt. I do not experience the problem using any chromium based browsers and things play fine. 

An additional note is that things play fine on my PC with Firefox. If I request the mobile site, the gifs will play to the end and then the player shows the broken icon in the center of the media player

Hi,

I'm a Firefox for Android beta user. A couple days ago I did an update, and now when I go to a web site all I see the domain and not the full path. This makes no sense to me. What is the benefit? It also makes the browser unusable for my purposes. How can I tell where I am? If I click in the bar it reveals the full path, but I need to see it all the time. I looked in about:config and no setting changes seemed to change this behavior. Please help! I really would not like to have to use Chrome. Thanks.

Hello. My tabs, history and other data did not migrate upon upgrade from Firefox Preview for Android to Firefox Nightly. I have and Android phone with software version 6.0. I do not typically log in to my account. Both Firefox versions are loaded on my phone so data has not been lost.

Both Nexus 7 and HTC Evo 3d with latest version of Firefox are no longer syncing bookmarks between multiple PC desktops or between each other. Top Sites and History sync as they should from the PC's to the Android devices. Only the Bookmarks are not syncing.

Firefox on the PC's sync Bookmarks between each other as they should. Adding a Bookmark on the mobile devices does not show up under the Mobile Bookmarks on the PC's. Or visa versa.

I have removed and reinstalled Firefox. Unlinked and relinked sync on all devices. This just started to happen in the last few days.
