Mozilla Firefox for Android adds a new main screen and bookmarking feature to its already robust mobile browsing. It's an incredibly faithful mobile version of a desktop browser and one of the premier browsers on Android. There's no reason not to give this app a shot, especially if your current mobile browser doesn't fully satisfy you.

The new Mozilla Firefox for Android comes with all the features you love in the original Firefox -- tabbed browsing, Firefox Sync, and great speed, to name only a few. Added to that is one of the premier incognito modes for mobile browsing, which will protect your online security from insidious cookies or snoops prying into your browsing history. Its speed won't disappoint you, either -- pages loaded a step faster than in Chrome and Dolphin in our side-by-side tests. The difference isn't big, only some milliseconds; but if you surf the Web a lot, it shows. Firefox's latest features include a new home screen, which works a lot more like the speed dial on desktop browsers, and the ability to pin a particular tab from your browser onto your phone's main home screen for easy access.

If you're already using Firefox on your PC, there's no reason for you not to use it on your Android phone or tablet. The new home screen feels awesome, the speed is great, and the improved tab pinning is a nice addition. Mozilla Firefox for Android stands out from other mobile browsers -- few combine so many features and yet remain fast and easy to use.

"trainwreck"

September 24, 2013  |  By jdpeyton

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox for Android 24

Pros

can use some Firefox extensions like Ad-block plus

Cons

I have a Nexus 7 (4.3). I have always used Firefox so installed it.
I wonder if a actual user beta tested this thing. It just gives a bad user experience. I expected a lot better. I uninstalled and
went back using Chrome.

Summary

I hope this doesn't portend the future for Firefox for windows

"Why the Outdated User Reviews?"

December 05, 2012  |  By smelton

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox for Android 17.0

Pros

Now does Flash.

Cons

Still not as good as the desktop version. But what Android browser is?

Summary

Why does CNET continue to publish User Reviews for earlier versions of Firefox for Android? Many of the reviews here are not valid for Firefox 17.0, and may confuse readers seeing those reviews. The reviews here should only be for the product being discussed, not earlier versions of it.

"Disappointed"

October 10, 2011  |  By pbeckman--2008

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox for Android 7.0.1

Pros

Firefox is my fave browser.

Cons

No Flash?!?

Summary

Firefox loses a lot of its appeal because of the lack of Flash. I usually have better luck with websites with Firefox for my desktop, but am planning to uninstall from phone.

"Slow and No flash"

August 03, 2011  |  By ssbmmaster

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox for Android 5.0

Pros

Really, there are none

Cons

As stated in the title, it is slow and does not include flash

Summary

You are better off sticking with the stock browser since it is faster, more stable, and gives flash support.

"Not ready for normal use"

July 17, 2011  |  By rahmanroni

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox for Android 5.0

Pros

Its ok I guess.............

Cons

Buggy, a recourse hog like the desktop version, slow and feels awkward to use at times.

Summary

Its passable, and I'm really lowering standards here, but it needs more work to be as good as the built in browser or other ones like Dolphin.
