Steps to reproduce:

Open Webinterface of Facebook in Android Firefox OR open It's impossible to use dropdown menus. If you push on related website content, just nothing happens. With different browser Dolphin, it's no problem to open dropdown menus. My device: Samsung Galaxy A5 with Android 5.x.

Expected results:

Dropdown menu shall appear once you pushed related website content.

I can reproduce the issue on Moto X (Android 4.4) and Nexus 6 (Android 5.1.1) on Firefox for Android 43 Beta 6 and Firefox for Android 42.0.1. I cannot reproduce the issue on latest Aurora and Nightly.

This appears to be caused by zoomed view being enabled and busted. The Gesture:clusteredLinksClicked message indicates that we are trying to open the zoomed view, which fails, and the click is then dropped[0].

Zoomed view isn't supposed to be enabled on release. It looks like it was inadvertently enabled by default for all branches in bug 1165128[1]. Margaret do you want to push a patch to flip that pref on release/beta or what?

> Margaret, is this fixed after bug 1227974?

That patch just landed on beta and release. Teodora, can you verify that patch fixed this issue?

I cannot reproduce the issue anymore using Moto X (Android 4.4) on Firefox for Android 43 Beta 7
Flags: needinfo?(teodora.vermesan)
I'm going to close this, since it was fixed by bug 1227974.
