After all these updates, FF is still a horrible browser.

I love Firefox's desktop browser but the fact that its mobile app doesn't support flash is a huge deal breaker for me. I'm sticking with dolphin hd for now. Best I've used thus far.

ppl that are talking bad about FF either your phone cant handle it or you dont know how to use it. FF is the best browser availible because it has the most custimization problem is that it doesnt support Flash, which is the reason why i dont use it. If it had it i would use it. i also believe that the software has a memory leak because it will take 30-35 of ram but i have plenty of that to spare. Many of you that are having the slow responsiveness its because you dont have enough ram to spare for it to run properly.

You just hit the nail on the head. Slow responsiveness, memory leak, no flash support, slow page loading. FF has every problem that I do not want to have for my primary browser. How can that be a good browser?
And, what benefits can you get by using customization?

Xscope Browser is pretty elegant and a very user-friendly UI. Buttttt Dolphin Browser is pretty awesome. My two favs.

firefox is hands down the best browser for desktop (I tried Chrome and it's just missing stuff that firefox has so easily accessible, like adblockplus and having the bookmarks/homepage easy to access) but the Android browser sucks butt, no flash? Lolno, I'll stick with the awesomeness of Dolphin HD

I don't know when is the last you gave a Chrome a go. But, you should try it now. Adblocker and home screen on Chrome are pretty awesome.

failure mozilla :-(
love the desktop browser
but man the android browser is poor as hell
tried it again yesterday - then tried skyfire and xscope
man - different league..
Personally i think they should go back to the drawing board with the mobile browser it seems its fundamentally wrong .... no amount of updates will fix it

They did it again!
I tried the official version and didn't like it.
Yesterday, I read an article that FF beta is available in the market, so I decided to give it a try expecting faster start-up, faster page loading and maybe some UI improvements. But, it is still slow, heavy and difficult to use.
FF for desktop is a well-made web browser with highly customizable features. But, FF for Android has been a big disappointment so far.
