Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0.1
Build ID: 20120616215734

Steps to reproduce:

Started Firefox for Android from the menu.


Actual results:

Sometimes Firefox fails to start up properly.  The screen appears, but no content appears.  The URL bar can be selected, but after selecting a bookmark or entering a URL, no pages will load, not even about:blank.  In Settings, all items are greyed-out.  If you select Quit, nothing happens.

This can be remedied by stopping Firefox and restarting it.  However, it happens frequently.

Hardware is a Samsung Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.1.1.

Thanks for the bug report. Two questions, do you happen to have the system preference: 'Don't keep activities' enabled in the Android developer settings? Can you attach a log (instructions here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Fennec/Android#Using_logcat) to this bug capturing the startup and attempt to load a webpage of Firefox?

'Don't keep activities' is disabled, as are all other developer options.

The aLogcat app doesn't work in Jelly Bean and I haven't yet been able to reproduce this when I've had the SDK handy, but I'll keep trying.
Hello Peter

Is the latest version of Firefox or Firefox Beta working for you on Google Play?
