What's New in Firefox for Mobile

The latest version of Firefox for mobile has the following changes:
  • Copy & Paste - Text selection in web content: Long tap in a web page and start selecting text using the familiar Android-style drag handles. This was a top request by Firefox users
  • Added a ‘Quit’ action to the Android menu: exit the browser with one tap. When you restart Firefox, you can quickly continue where you left off by restoring all or individual tabs from your previous session. This was another very frequent feature request from mobile Firefox users
  • Use Firefox in your language: When Firefox starts for the first time, it detects the language setting of your Android device and automatically switches to that language, if Firefox supports it. You can switch Firefox to a different language with a single tap
  • Improved image rendering on Tegra-based tablets and phones (see bug 669851)
  • The WebSocket API is now available in Firefox for Android (see bug 537787)
  • Firefox for Android is built on the same rendering engine as Firefox for desktop computers.
