For those of you who are into Firefox, Beta 3 has made its way into the public ready for Beta’ing. Quite a few changes and addtitions have made its way into this version, including:


  • Improved support for Android keyboards, both hardware and on-screen
  • New Android-style menus
  • Fixed a bug in opening links from other apps
  • Support for uploading files
  • “Save as PDF” command in the site menu
  • Fixed rendering of Arabic and Farsi text (on devices with Arabic/Farsi fonts installed)

Firefox Sync

  • New UI for simpler setup
  • Support for custom Firefox Sync servers


  • Full-screen open video
  • Improved audio performance

User interface

  • Copy/paste in URL bar
  • Search engines appear in the awesomescreen as you type
  • Browse recommended add-ons through the add-on manager

For developers
  • localStorage API
  • orientation events (new on Android)

  • Crash reporting for crashes in web content

The option to Save as PDF is one that jumps off the paper at me, as well as some copy/paste upgrades.

If you’d like to see how this browser is coming along for yourself, direct your Android 2.X device to Bear in mind, this requires about 32MB of internal storage and another 12MB on your SD card.
