I'm getting an error testing an app on mobile that I don't get on desktop.  its 'TypeError: getSWF("exAudioFlash").loadSong is not a function'.  if it failed on desktop too I would have blamed bug 749792 but its only mobile.

Ah ok, yeah, so it tries to play flash the song with flash if there is no mp3 support. Which will be the main problem with FF mobile.

I will switch it from not mobile for the time being, until mp3 support arrives in FF
Ah, it may be bug 749792 after all if Desktop relies on direct MP3 support instead of communicating with Flash.  If so, this bug is blocked on either bug 748351 or 749792.

(Bug 748351 is the mp3 support on mobile bug.)
yeah, exactly that, if the browser doesn't support mp3 it fallsback to flash.

Unfortunately where the music is sourced is pretty much all mp3

The fallback to flash should work in FF for Android, although Android is discontinuing support of this soon. Looks like we need to double-time it in getting mp3 support on Android.

Hey guys, can you let me know when FF will have mp3 support so that I can change this app back to mobile / tablet support
