NOTE: If you are looking for Firefox/Fennec for Android ARMv6, those are over here.


For testing, here are Linaro Optimized builds of Firefox/Fennec for ARMv7. You'll need to remove existing installations prior to installing these builds.

Tested with a Xoom (4G, Android 4.0.4 Official). Here are the BrowserMark results (average of 5 passes, YMMV):
57770.8 - Official Nightly 2012-06-07
62502.2 - Unofficial Nightly Linaro Build 2012-06-07

ADBlock Plus:
Development builds of AB+ work. (Tested with Nightly v2012-06-14 and AB+ 2.1.b3478). They can be found here.

Troubleshooting:
If you receive this error "Secure Connection Failed" with error code "sec_error_no_memory" with the Linaro builds, you must disable TLS support:
1. browse to about:config
2. search for "tls"
3. toggle "security.enable_tls" to false

One of the best browsers I've ever tried.
Way smoother than Opera Mini, which was my top untill I found this :p

This is the best browser I have ever used

Yeah I'm dropping Opera Mobile for this. This is the best looking and best functioning browser I've used on Android.
Can you be specific about which Build Dates and Release Channel you are using?

Likewise, the only one I could get to work was the beta. It works flawlessly btw :)

Hrm... I'll build new packages and upload... these tested fine on ARMv6, but I didn't have quick access to the tablet to test. Will redo.

Edit: Does the ESR build not work either? That ARMv7 build was tested.

Tested all three (from jun-21) the most consistent was Nightly (wich is my new default browser). beta crashes for no reason and "stable" is crap at rendering webpages (when scroll down, first I see grey-white squares and a second or two later, the webpage)
using Atrix with stock 2.3.6

ESR works but is a lot less smooth and slower.
I'm testing on a sense 4 ROM on sensation xe
