The display in is still the one as in attached screenshot above ("Browse" button is not visible):
device: nokia N900
buildID: Mozilla /5.0 (Maemo;Linux armv7l; rv:2.0b7pre)Gecko/20100924

for, "Browse" button opens a dialog like in attached screenshot
so, maybe the width of that element is all off.

and it looks like their non-flash fallback uses a fixed length that is basically bigger than what it should be.

Maybe this should be a evangelism bug, and it is clearly not blocking fennec product.

I see this on builds (nexus one and samsung vibrant):

Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Linux armv7l; rv:2.0b7pre) Gecko/20101006
Firefox/4.0b7pre Fennec/4.0b1

I think this should block Fennec 2.0 and I'm not sure why it was marked as 2.0-

This issue is still reproducing on:
Build id : Mozilla/5.0 (Android;Linux armv7l;rv:2.0b13pre)Gecko/201100321
Firefox/4.0b13pre Fennec /4.1a1pre
Device: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
OS: Android 2.1 update 1

When I tap on the Browse button, a list with helper apps will be displayed after several seconds. If I tap on the helper app which will open my Gallery Photos, my screen will turn to black and will persist like this for about a minute. Then if I choose a pic to upload, the screen will turn again to black an remains like that for minutes or even more. Also the Android system is frozen and any tap on System Buttons (Back, Menu etc.) will open the following message:
Activity Fennec (in application Fennec) is not respondig.
Force close (button) | Wait (button)"
The only way to unfreeze the system is to tap on Force close.

I tried to reproduce this on and

A new version is available, compared to the previous screenshot. I tested from my Nexus 7 Android 4.4 and Firefox 32.0.3, everything is OK, I am registered, and I could send a picture to the site
Thank you!
