You can grab the latest .apk on a PC from Mozilla's FTP server and sideload it, as noted on Mozilla's wiki. If you're unsure of how to sideload an app, you can find a variety of methods in How can I install an app given only its APK file? (some require internet connectivity, many do not).

By far the easiest way to do this is to use Firefox as your web browser everywhere, and then use Firefox's built in sync functionality. This will (optionally) sync not just your Bookmarks, but also your History, your Saved Passwords and your Preferences, and let you see the recent tabs you've had open on different machines. Start by installing Firefox for ...

Can you visit this link with your phone? market://details?id=org.mozilla.firefox Also you must note that: Firefox is available for Android phones (2.0 and above) and the Nokia N900. The official page of Firefox Mobile gives also a list of supported devices that have been tested.

There's no direct relation between the Chrome Mobile and any Firefox version. What you can do, is to synchronize the information from your Chrome mobile to the Chrome desktop version, and then, using a desktop application, pass the bookmarks for any other browser. Xmarks is a FREE Bookmark Sync application that supports among others, synchronization ...

From at least Firefox 11 onwards (may have originated in 10) you just need to tap on the address bar. The dropdown menu with the four tabs you mentioned (including Bookmarks) should appear when you do. This also applies to phones, though the tabs on the phone version appear across the top of the menu right under the address bar rather than along the left ...

There is indeed an extension which does this. It's called Phony and you should be able to find it if you use the addons search from within Firefox Mobile. After it's installed, you'll get a new drop-down entry in your preferences menu where you can choose your user agent (the most recent version actually has more choices than the picture below):

Your issue is not related to Firefox but to your internet provider (Time Warner Cable). According to this site, it "hijacks" your browser's default DNS resolution failure behavior (also known as "404 page"), redirecting you to Road Runner. Following this site instructions, you just have to go to Road Runner's preference page and disable the Web Address ...

on android you have to add this feature via an addon. after installing the Save link option will appear as on a desktop Firefox. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/save-link-menus/?src=search

In short, it's because of the different ways that Android and MS Windows are distributed. MS Windows is a retail product, sold directly to PC owners. Therefore, Microsoft is responsible for making it run on PCs. PCs are standardized, and (nowadays) have a hardware-discovery mechanism, so Microsoft can design the Windows installer so that it can run on any ...

According to their bug tracker, WebRTC is currently broken on Firefox Android. You can get audio or video, but not both, and attempting to get both results in your getting neither. As for Chrome Android, it's only in the beta (M25 and later) and is disabled by default. To enable it, type chrome://flags into the url bar, then scroll down and find the ...

Firefox was never the default Android browser. The actual default browser is based on the open-source WebKit engine, which also powers the Safari browser on desktops, laptops and Apple's iOS-based mobile devices. In the other hand, Chrome is based in Chromium and offers more options and performance than the stock browser.

Figured this out by looking at the desktop version. Enter "about:config" into the address bar. Search for "keyword.url" Set the value of this setting to the new search provider. For example: "https://www.duckduckgo.com/?q=" UPDATE: This has changed in the newer versions of Firefox (desktop version too). You now have to install search engine addons. Then ...

I don't see a FireFox extension that bring bookmarks to your phone permanently. There are a few suggestions in this question but they are designed more for sending links on a one-time basis. Getting the Del.icio.us FireFox add-on and the Del.icio.us add-on for the Android dolphin browser might be the best bet. (I knew I saw this somewhere on here... props ...

The answer to this question from eldarerathis is currently correct; now, though, ARMv6 support is in the works too, and it can be downloaded from Mozilla. (However, the Aurora build of mobile Firefox worked better for me than the nightly build last time I tried it; however, I have a slightly unusual device using a QVGA (small) screen and a keyboard).

Credit to Matt H's comment for pointing me the right way. If you follow through to the System Requirements page on their wiki, the HTC Wildfire is specifically called out as an unsupported device as it has an ARMv6 based processor; Firefox Mobile currently requires an ARMv7 compatible processor. They do have an experimental build for ARMv6 based devices, ...

Here's what i did. Assuming you've set up the sync process: Go to Firefox on your PC, click Bookmarks in the top right corner Choose Unsorted Bookmarks. This opened a new window for me where i could see a section called Mobile bookmarks that i hadn't seen anywhere else. Click and drag this Mobile Bookmarks folder to either Bookmarks Toolbar or Bookmarks ...

Unfortunately I don't think there's any way for a user of an app to do that, I'm pretty sure it would require the developer to add that extra "intent" as an option to their app before it could appear in that app chooser box. There are apps that specialize in this behaviour though, and should appear as options in the app chooser box for web links: InBrowser ...

The first problem is space. Most phone until recently have too little storage space to contain the entire generic kernel and android framework. A compounding issue is that phone hardware is generally more variant and less standardized than PC hardware, which can be unavoidable due to the limited space. The other problem is that there no single standard for ...

From the Firefox for Android page : Installation requires [...] 384MB of RAM. Your device has only 256MB. You can always try to install the nightly version, although it may be unstable. Or you can search on google for a stable firefox apk.

Have you looked at this extension? Description: About this Add-on This add-on enables desktop mode by default; that is, "Request Desktop Site" is always checked whenever opening a new tab. This is designed for users with larger screens (primarily tablet users). NOTE: Make sure "Request Desktop Site" and/or Phony are disabled when viewing ...

The error message in this case is misleading: it's not that Greasemonkey is incompatible with that version number, rather that it's incompatible with Firefox for Android. The extension mechanism in Firefox for Android is somewhat different to Firefox on desktops, so add-ons for desktop Firefox won't work (in general) on Android. To find out if/when Android ...

Would the same thing happen if you used a VPN? Your ISP wouldn't be able to compress images if it didn't know what the traffic was, right? I found setting up a basic VPN to be pretty easy; if you have a Win 7 PC with an internet connection (or a willing buddy with one) you can set up a quick VPN using this guide: How to Configure your Computer to Accept ...

Note that both iOS browser (safari) and Chrome (desktop or for Android) are based on WebKit engine. That's why they are so similar in what they render. Firefox browser uses a much different engine: Gecko. As an answer for what you want to do, I think that given the CSS and javascript the mobile site loads is different depending on the rendering engine, ...

The Dolphin browser has an option to turn off images. I believe most versions of the stock browser have this capability as well. The 4.0.4 version can disable images via Settings ->Bandwidth management -> Load images, and I'm pretty sure that the Gingerbread browser had this capability as well.

As with all apps, they store their data below the /data/data directory, in a directory named according to their package name -- which is what you can see following the "id=" in the playstore URL. So for Firefox, data should be in /data/data/org.mozilla.firefox. So far the good news. Now for the bad news: This directory can only be accessed by the app itself ...

According to Mobyware there's a Stylish-Custom Addon available for the mobile Firefox. The page also mentions you need the Stylish Addon itself to make it work -- however, I could not find that. The compatibility list starts with Android 2.0 and goes up through the version to 4.0 (ICS), a list of compatible devices is available as well. Moreover, some ...
