Liz do you see an entry for Asus SL101 if so would you add it to the blocked list? https://www.asus.com/us/Tablets/Eee_Pad_Slider_SL101/

Is there an entry for Toshiba AT105/16 ?
No, I don't see it. But there are some variants, like "Toshiba CorporationAT10-A/AT15-A (Japan: AT503)– tostab12BL"
That looks to be Tegra 3 which has Neon. Thanks for checking. It looks like the correct model number is AT105-T1016 for the Tegra 2 version.
Looking at other toshiba products I can see - "Toshiba Thrive 7" which according to http://www.gsmarena.com/toshiba_thrive_7-4203.php is tegra2 - "Toshiba AT100", http://www.toshiba.co.uk/discontinued-products/toshiba-at100-100/
Just to close the loop, we should block those. If you already have then great!
Blocked Toshiba Thrive 7 and Toshiba AT100. I didn't see AT105-T1016 in any of the devices listed, so I couldn't block it.
Sony Tablet P is also missing from this list.
(In reply to james.haggerty from comment #11) > Sony Tablet P is also missing from this list. Thanks james. I just double checked, and it looks like we block Sony Tablet P on release already. Are you able to download the current version of Firefox from the Play Store?
Yes, I can install 55.0.2 from the Play Store, and get the message "Sorry! Firefox won't work on this device (armeabi-v7a, 15). Please download the correct version." I assumed it was because it was missing from the list quoted above (first comment in this thread).
Hmm. It's listed as "unsupported" rather than "excluded". I had assumed unsupported meant you cannot download it. I can't add it to the list of excluded devices since it's detected as unsupported. So it must have some other incompatibility detected by the Play Store. You might try running Firefox 52 (https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/mobile/releases/52.0.2/android-api-15/multi/) which I think is the last compatible version for devices with non-NEON hardware.
Hmm, how odd. Thanks for pointing me to the archive; I ended up building my own version of Firefox 55 with disabled NEON support, which seem to work fine (https://github.com/wryun/firefox-ics-tegra2/releases).
