mozilla.org/firefox should advertise the mobile version of Firefox to Kindle Fire users, not the i686 Linux version. Furthermore, if and when Firefox enters the Amazon app store / marketplace, perhaps mozilla.org/firefox should directly link to that to avoid causing a "outside-of-market-app-install" prompt to appear to the user. Side note: It is also true that we're in a bit of an awkward state with the current nightly mobile version of Firefox being so much more responsive and visually fresh than the stable version.
@fryn - thanks for reporting this! @cbrodigan - can you lend your expertise here? I see a lot of overlap with the other Mobile browser detection bugs you've tackled. We want to make sure we're providing these users the most appropriate experience. Thanks!
Chrissie - Any thoughts here? We can easily tackle this before the Fx11 launch. Since the Kindle Fire is a tablet device, perhaps we group it into that sort of device detection, if we're not already.
assigning to James, now blocking a tracking bug for lots of these little guys. In the case of the Kindle Fire, the user should be seeing the full website (not desktop and being served the mobile buttons v. desktop buttons).
Is Kindle a supported device? What exact URL should they be redirected to?
hey sorry this slipped for me - we are no longer supported on the Kindle Fire (we were pulled from the Amazon App Store in December)
Thanks Jaclyn & James.
