QR code input is currently enabled for Nightly only.
You need to remove the nightly flags in the following files:

- mobile/android/base/preferences/
- mobile/android/base/toolbar/

Karim, Chenxia, is there anything blocking this? Can we write a patch and uplift it to ship this in 41?

Nope, nothing blocking this or the Voice! Just wanted it to bake a bit on Nightly, but we haven't heard of any bugs, so sounds like this should be fine.

Karim, do you want to do this bug, or should I take it?

I can do it :)

I tested a current nightly with the top 10 QR code readers when searching for "QR code" in the Play Store + some ones that caught my eye mostly carriers and security companies. Some don't seem to provide an API for other apps to call into them. All the ones that did provide an API functioned. I think we want to block the Google Goggle's app from this as the experience is poor and it does not directly give Firefox back a URL. It fires an intent then you need to select your browser again.

If anyone has info on popular QR Code readers in non-American non-European countries I would be interested in testing those apps.
