User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0.1
Build ID: 20120614114901
Steps to reproduce:
Clicked on the microphone icon of the Google Search Bar Widget on the Android phone's desktop to do a Voice search.
(Using ICS 4.0.4)
After completing the voice search, Android popped up only two options for completing the search:
* Android Browser
Should have showed:
* Android Browser
* Firefox Beta
* Firefox Nightly
(Since I have all three firefox versions installed)
I can repo on Galaxy Nexus, Android 4.0.4 using the default search bar widget on the desktop and the "Search" app (which appear to link to the same Activity).
This only occurs with voice search – typing in a query will show all versions of Firefox.

It's not a duplicate of bug 778588. That bug is actually a feature request for a shortcut to voice search from the location bar. This bug relates to an inability to use Firefox for voice search from the Google Search app or widget. I can repo on a HTC Evo 3D/V running 4.0.3.
I also see this on my Samsung Galaxy S3 running 4.0.4. This bug essentially means I don't use Firefox, as I'd prefer to stick to one web browser, and use Google Voice Search quite often.
Add me to the list, SGS3 4.0.4.
FWIW, I updated my Samsung Galaxy S3 to 4.1.1 today, and this bug is moot now. Google voice search now opens an embedded browser that displays the results of a Google search for the term(s). If you click on one of these links, it'll open up in Firefox (or your default web browser).
Unfortunately, Vodafone 4.1.1. has so many bugs, that I had to downgrade to 4.0.4. So I still need solution to the bug stated above.
We go through each of the intents we support here: http://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/file/a7125bc00ed9/mobile/android/base/GeckoApp.java#l1974
We should be able to solve this by adding support for the appropriate voice search intent - perhaps the RecognizerIntent (http://developer.android.com/reference/android/speech/RecognizerIntent.html)?
This is an important feature for Accessibility as well.
Results from voice search launches Firefox 17 with Jelly Bean 4.2.1 here

Same with Android 4.1.1 (comment 6); sounds like this may be ICS (Android 4.0.4) only.

Hi Federico, do you still want this bug?
Hi Brian, if I remember correctly it was a ics only bug (right before the google now takeover) and I was not able to find a phone with ics on it. However (my memory might be wrong) I _seem_ to recall that I spoke about WONTFIXING this with somebody, but again, it must have been quite a long time ago and I might be wrong.
Apart from this, I think I will not be able to work on this in short term..
