Firefox for Android makes it easy to get to your favorite sites with a personalized page that we call the Awesome Screen. Firefox for Android includes a new and improved Awesome Screen to help get you to where you want to go on the Web quickly.
The Awesome Screen now completes your URL destination as-you-type to get you to your favorite sites faster. Firefox for Android includes Switch to Tab that lets you easily find and switch to any open tab from your Awesome Screen without opening duplicate tabs. The title bar in Firefox for Android hides while not in use to make your entire screen available for your content. Simply pull down the title bar from the top of the screen when you are ready to use it again.
Have a favorite search provider? Firefox for Android lets you change your default search provider from the Firefox add-ons manager. It is really easy to make this change in a few clicks. Simply, visit the Add-ons manager, and long-tap on an installed search engine. This brings up a dialog where you can either “Disable” the search engine, or “Set as Default.”
Firefox for Android includes an updated RSS feed reader to create a simple way to subscribe to an RSS feed. If you go to any page with a discoverable RSS feed and long-tap on the URL bar, you will be given the option to “Subscribe to Page.”
Mozilla works with a global volunteer community to create Firefox and almost every non-English version of Firefox is localized by community volunteers. Firefox for Android adds support for Turkish and Hungarian locales bringing an amazing Web experience to even more people around the globe.
