wesj, any idea what's going on here?

Also, do we even support installing Fennec on the SD card? I thought we've had issues with that in that past and decided it wasn't worth it.

This is standard Android. Widgets are explicity disabled from application installs on SD cards

I don't think there's anything we should nor can do.
