Closed Bug 621262 Opened 9 years ago Closed 9 years ago
Manifest .xml .in implies that GPS location support is mandatory
The manifest  specifies <uses-permission .. ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION>  without any <uses-feature> tags for location and location.gps . This will result in Firefox being hidden in the Market from users with phones that don't offer both the location and location.gps features. I believe the following tags will resolve this, as long as Firefox Mobile is capable of working without gps support. <uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.location" android:required="false" /> <uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.location.gps" android:required="false" />  http://developer.android.com/guide/appendix/market-filters.html  http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/manifest/uses-feature-element.html#permissions-features  http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/file/6d22eaba6e95/embedding/android/AndroidManifest.xml.in

Can you provide some steps to reproduce for this bug, please?
This should be verified by installing Fennec on a device without GPS, Richard, do you have such a device?
Nope, sorry, only came across this by accident while reading through the manifest for unrelated reasons.
