I believe this needs to be toggled otherwise devices trying to download Firefox will get 'unsupported due to manifest' messages on Google Play.
Blocks: 845307
The first opportunity we'll have to fix this is FF20b3 (going to build on Tuesday). Mark/Brad probably won't be able to address this before Monday due to MWC, but it's possible that Matt can help push a patch along (or tell us why this isn't the correct path forward).
Context in email I sent out, bug 845307 was filed from a user with a device meeting system requirements but not meeting manifest spec on Google Play (unable to download Firefox). I believe the store is looking at
and blocking the device; Galaxy Fit (320x240 QVGA). 

Fx20 supposedly supports QVGA displays (outlined in the release-notes) including 320x240 (~120 LDPI) as far as I know that's Android defined as 'small-screen'; but as far as I'm aware we don't support LDPI yet (Sriram says MDPI is downscaled, but I thought we were waiting on bug 795408). If we support QVGA; 480x640 (HDPI), I believe we still need to flip that manifest setting. (was using Table 3 near the bottom for info)

As far as I can recall, the only suck with small-screens is bug 840593

Approving this for uplift assuming that QA will find a device (or a community member) who can verify this.

firefox 20 beta 4 is offered to me by google play store on my Samsung Galaxy Mini (ARMv6, 384MB RAM, QVGA), so i guess that's one data point towards setting this bug to verified. What are the criteria? Two or more armv6 384mb, qvga devices tested successfully? or is 1 sufficient?

This is already in the relnotes as "System requirements have been lowered to 384MB of RAM and QVGA displays"
