    I had big hopes for this, and its been failure after failure, and this one seems to be pretty cool but my keyboard swiftkey 3 on my GNEX its not working with this...I had the beta for a long time and everything worked fine...Going back to Dolphin and Chrome...

    I downloaded it and am liking what I see thus far. Seems pretty quick most of the time on my Maxx and on 3G. Can't wait to see what it's like on 4G.

    My only question: Is there a way to import my Bookmarks from my Stock Browser to Firefox?

    I wonder why Play seems to think the Asus Transformer (with ICS) is not a compatible device? Weird -- somehow I'm already running an earlier version of Firefox, but now when I search for any version on Play, I get nada.

    Installed, and looks nice. Installed the User Agent addon called "Phony" and tried to pretend I was a desktop computer to watch Hulu, but it didn't work. After some research I found out that it is Flash that is telling hulu that I am an android device. Bummer.
