    Ever since I had this phone, I think, firefox will not run on it. Is there something different about this phone that wont allow firefox to run? I have tried it on pure stock, lineageos and aokp and firefox just wont run, no matter what version I install.

    Here's a log for when i try and open the app.

    Contact Firefox on Twitter @FireFox as they are very responsive and should be able to assist.

    Maybe Firefox is not compatible with your current ROM.

    Do other browsers like Chrome and Opera work fine?

    I have tried about 15 versions of firefox and none will run on this phone, any other browser works fine. Just don't understand why FF just won't run.

    Just glancing through that log posting brings up some questions:
    -- There are several error messages pertaining to permissions issues, was the app installed using the Play Store or was it side-loaded using an APK?
    -- If the latter, where did you obtain the APKs that you've tried to use?

    Current version of FF installed via playstore

    The earlier version apk(s) that I side loaded came from https://firefox.en.uptodown.com/android/old

    The current installed rom, is AOKP 7.1.2 from this forum

    Try installing the apk again, but before even starting the app up, use the 'Clear data' button to wipe any old config/settings files. Just wondering if there's some corrupt, old config file that's the cause behind those permissions errors.

    Forgot about this thread. Anyways, I finally fixed my issues. It wasn't the app or the phone, but permissions. Got to looking at the permissions of Firefox and none of them were set for some reason. After turning on all the permissions, Firefox ran as normal. Thought I would update this, just in case someone else had the same issues.

    Glad to hear you solved it.

    It could have been some issues with your custom ROM.
