I use it because I use Firefox desktop which works great & I sync bookmarks. The mobile version is complete garbage, ver. 41+. Horribly slow; changing tabs pages always reload wasting time and data; long hesitations while loading pages, some never finish; keying into location or text fields is very slow; long hesitation after clicking links; sometimes going to another app & returning will close all tabs; crashes with many active tabs. Not my internet, other apps, browsers, & older versions (40.0.3) work perfectly. *moto X 1st gen Lollipop, Moto x pure Marsh, & Lenovo tablet KitKat. I give up, using Naked Browser instead, perfect.
all YOUTUBE VIDEOS STOPPED PLAYING IN FIREFOX! has Youtube/google caused this to force us to buy Youtube red and pay monthly fees? It just happened suddenly earlier this week. Videos play in youtube app and stopped in Firefox completely. No more plaging youtube in the background. "Video cannot play because the file is corrupt" is the youtube message...yeah right!
Privacy, open web focused browser. Using this app for some time compared to chrome this is slow and not as smooth, downloads are not quite reliable, but this app keeps more tabs in memory compared to chrome and is developed by a non-profit, for your rights company Mozilla. Improve speed & stability and enable E10 by default (available in version 55) to have speed improvements for all.
I love Firefox, main browser on PC. But I loved the app because I listen to music online while doing other things on my phone like reading. But now the sound stops when exiting or putting the phone into sleep mode, I can see how some people would not enjoy this but I would love to see the option to turn it on and use Firefox in the background.
Still a great browsing experience. Chrome may have slightly faster load times, but the freedom to install addons is a big game changer (especially when it comes to ad block). Also, Google tracks your browsing history while Mozilla doesn't. As always, if the browser is getting crashy, try removing your addons first.
I am at the point in removeing Firefox from my tablet. It keeps crashing and is becoming a big resource hog and uses to much memory. If no issues on cell or desktop but my tablet keeps crashing. If this problem is not fixed I will remove the app.
