Firefox for Android only displays the desktop version of gmail rather than mobile.

Android only question.

I prefer to access gmail via a browser rather than the gmail app. Tests of other browsers on Android (Chrome and Dolphin) I see that they display a mobile-specific version of the gmail Web site.

Firefox for Android only displays the version of office on my Nexus 7 (5.1 runs Android 2012) - and therefore more difficult to read and use. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Well, Yes, it's that Word annoying Tablet.

What I'm going to describe is difficult to type, so I hope that you can open this page on your tablet.

Select (0) and copy the following text on your Tablet if possible to avoid the excesses of type: Android; Tablet;#Android; Mobile;

The forum linkifies this first part, but it is not supposed to be a link.

(1) open a new tab to Subject: config (type about: config the Awesomebar and hit the arrow go or tap Enter).

You can bookmark it for easy future access.

(2) in the search box, type agen and make a pause while Firefox filter list

(3) scroll down to the bottom and look for a preference named general.useragent.site_specific_overrides and confirm that it has its default value true. If it is set to false, press the reset button for it back to true.

(4) scroll back up and press the big button "+" to the left of the search box to add a new parameter

(A) the name of the preference must be com (for all Google sites) com (for Gmail only)

If you type this, beware of the correction automatic insertion of spaces and be sure to remove those.

If paste, remove the part after that.

(B) on the right side, type Boolean and in the popup, change it to a String

(C) the value of the preference should be Android; Tablet; #Android; Mobile; -in other words, substituting Mobile for Tablet.

If you type, pay attention to the excess spaces.

If gluing, remove the preference name and extra space before this part.

(D) then click on create

If you open must now use the mobile layout.


Edit: To clarify the name of preference options.

  • How can I remove the Get Firefox for Android box on the homepage?

    Recently, I noticed that I constantly see a box on the home page of Firefox asking if I want to send me a link to Firefox for Android. Is there a way to delete it? I tried the solution with a similar issue in 2012, but the solution doesn't seem to work this time:

    These kinds of "ads" should have an option to delete, as I already have the application installed and do not want to see it more. Firefox is usually of choice, and a button to mark the div html with style 'hidden' should be very simple to implement.

    I think it would be great if there was a button to reject individual code snippets that you do not want to see again. But... I'm not aware of such a thing at the moment.

    You do not have to create the breakpoint for all sizes, but in this case, it is necessary for 375 px. After you create the 375 point px to stop, you can get rid of 320 px breakpoint.

    Remember to take backup of your file before making all these tests.

  • Firefox for Android does not implement HW keyboard shortcuts, please add the same as the desktop version!

    I use a bluetooth keyboard and noticed that the classic keyboard shortcuts do not work with Firefox for Android. This is a major gap, with chrome, you can use the same shortcuts on the desktop version, it would be nice to have a comparable feature on Firefox for Android too.

    Hardware keyboards are a useful supplement to the tablets and the last iterations of keyboard 'sexy' as one that is available for the Google Nexus 9 are practical and folio desiderable.
    Please add this improvement soon!

There is a file as... I was wondering, how can I use it in Firefox for android? To make use of this add-on? Thank you!

    Hi Ererer

    I have never installed an add-on third party directly to the Android operating system (only on the desktop). If you find the as in your folder Android downloads or via the Android file manager if it is in a different directory, try tapping on it and see if it will open in Firefox for Android and settle. Don't know if it will work because this cannot carry on Android and I do not see in our documentatino:

  • How to change the resolution of the screen in Firefox for Android?

    I have a Galaxy Note 3, which is display resolution is 1920 x 1080.
    If I go to with Firefox, I see that it shows my screen resolution 640 x 360 (even with the "ask Site Desktop" checked and tiny text size ' ").
    I tried with other browsers, and some of them were able to display 1920 x 1080.

    The question is:
    How can I use Firefox for Android in screen resolution of my screen (which is 1920 x 1080) MAXIMUM?

    Could you try to open this page:

    The script should show the screen resolution 'effective' as well as the device pixels, which gives the real screen resolution. (The page is not recalculate when you rotate between portrait and model guidelines, so you'll need to manually reload after having done this.)

    Note: There may be rounding errors for more extreme values.

    Assuming that the device pixels is closer to 3 to 1, you can try to change a hidden parameter to see if it improves things.

    Open a new tab and type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press the Enter key on the keyboard. You can bookmark this page for future alterations.

    In the search box, type css, and then press the keyboard entry.

    When you find layout.css.devPixelsPerPx press the button Edit and change the value 1.0 (in general, you simply remove the sign-). Press the OK button.

    Return to the first tab and reload.

    Did that change how make real sites do you use?

  • Firefox for Android (4.2.2) - what are the problems with the presentation of the Web site?

    For the vast majority of websites read Firefox for Android did a great job. But for some websites there are the following two issues - either the website opens but not all content correctly (buttons missing, menus does not, fault of formatting), or Firefox for Android crashes when video or flash on the chosen site is enabled. As the video works perfectly on other sites, I can only imagine that there is something on some sites that Firefox for Android is not satisfied...

    In addition, properly installed Flash Player for android 4.0 of Adobe's Archive ( still crashes as well.

    (YouTube works perfectly, by the way!)

    Which checks that I can do or what settings can I change to fix this problem?

    Thank you for your question, it strikes a few topics that I would be happy to help you with.
    For the first:
    not all content correctly (buttons missing, menus does not, fault of formatting).

    This will depend on the Web site. Buttons and menus can be designed to use javascript and the formatting can be dynamic according to the plethora of screensizes that designers of web sites planned for the website to be seen by.

    Firefox for Android crashes when video or flash on the chosen site is enabled

    It will depend also on the Web site. Some sites will be equipped with a built-in video player and others will use the installed video player. Flash compatibility is also related to the hardware of the device. He needs an ARM7 over my head.

    What we can try to do to change that. Try another video player for sites giving questions. If its possible to download a local copy and watch the video on the video player of choice. It is also an option to try to ask the site Office of some sites won't load not well. If the site detects a drive by default, you can try VLC.
