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 ...

Besides the points mentioned in Lie Ryan's answer, there is one big issue people tend to underestimate: Drivers. Remember Windows 95? Most people remember it as a bad and unstable OS. Why was it unstable? Because the drivers came in the beginning not from Microsoft but from the hardware manufacturers and some (most?) of them where of poor quality, crashing ...

You should be able to go into Settings>Application Manager and clear data and cache for the Firefox application.

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 ...

In the current Firefox 28 the issue is solved by setting browser.search.loadFromJars to false in about:config. Then only the search engines I added myself are shown.

Seems the only solution turned out to be a workaround. By using an email Application instead of a browser to manage emails, we are able to copy and paste as you would expect.

Can someone please explain all the steps involved in the process of displaying the Indic font by Firefox browser (in the particular scenario explained above)? The indicfont.ttf was placed in the /system/fonts directory. If you have control over the website, I suggest you should add a @font-face rule to the site's CSS stylesheet. This will work on all ...

To answer the second part of your question first: 'Why does the previous solution only work on Firefox browser and not on other mobile browsers?' You are using TTF file. This type of font file is supported by firefox , Safari and Chrome. The other browsers may not support it. For eg: IE supports EOT ; Opera supports SVG etc. But mostly all android browsers ...

At least my version of Chrome (32.0.1700.107) on OS X has a menu called Mobile Bookmarks under Bookmarks, where I can see my phone's bookmarks. And I can add bookmarks to my desktop Chrome from Android from Menu -> Favorite (the star) -> Folder -> Desktop bookmarks. Try using Chrome Beta for Android if yours doesn't have that feature.

You can still disable the search engines if you have root access to your device. Specifically, you need to pull and modify the file search.json. On my device, I have: adb pull /data/data/org.mozilla.firefox/files/mozilla/rbn69ru0.default/search.json Now, by default, this file doesn't format everything nicely, so you can use something like ...

Although you can't remove search engines from Firefox for Android any more (which I think is the wrong decision for them to have made, personally), you can at least reorder the list, which almost makes up for not being able to remove search engines (I really don't want to ever use Bing, thanks Firefox). To reorder the list, go into Settings > Customise > ...

I'm not sure if it worked this way back when you asked the question, but this can be done without an addon. Change Firefox settings to tap-to-play plugins if not already set. Then click the video link to open the file. Firefox will not play the video if tap-to-play is set to on. Instead of tapping to play, long-tap the video placeholder until you are ...

There is Stylish add-on for the Dolphin Browser.
