First of all, let me say, I'm so exciting to be testing Firefox on iOS!

I'm guessing you already have this noted somewhere, but clicking "call" on a search results page doesn't prompt the iphone to call the number clicked on in the browser: http://cl.ly/image/1U2r0v040S14

Thanks for working on this!!!!!
Perfect. Thanks for the report!

Aaron of Jennifer, can you find out what other browsers do? Like Safari and Chrome? I'm curious if there is an intermediate confirmation dialog. And if not, if the phone starts dialing the number immediately. Would be useful info to have when we implement this.
href="tel:########" will prompt the number in a dialog with a "Cancel | Call" button, on call the dialler opens and begins dialing

Safari and Chrome both honour this.
It seems like we directly launch the dialler and begin dialling actually but we bypass the prompt. So it looks like it is partially natively handled already which is a good thing.
Here's what the intermediate confirmation dialog looks like on Safari http://cl.ly/image/1y2r442r1r0X
Summary: "click to call" from browser isn't working → Missing dialler confirmation prompt on href="tel:" links
Let's bear in mind Bug 794034 when implementing this.
OS: Mac OS X → iOS 8

Summary: Missing dialler confirmation prompt on href="tel:" links → Prompt to dial when tapping href="tel:" links

It looks like this works in build 6, according to some user feedback. Someone please reopen this if I'm wrong!
