    For some reason, when I am on my phone android Firefox it frequently keeps crashing and when I restart it with a recover another tab opens which is of a page that says addblock plus has been installed . It constantly keeps doing that. Does anyone know why or does anyone have a solution? It is really a nuisance as I d be browsing and it would crash and constantly open the new tab.

    Welcome to Brighthand, androidbeta!

    EDIT: never mind the drivel below; I also use FF on my S5 a lot, without the problem you described; sorry to be of so little help.
    Disclaimer: below was written without adequate coffee having been drunk....
    I use Dolphin extensively, but haven't had that problem. if you tap on the dolphin icon, and then tap on the gear (to go to settings), is Adblock enabled? if yes, disable it, and see if that fixes the problem.
    Let us know what happens, and good luck :newpalm:

    No problems here with Firefox. I also don't have adblock installed. You could try ditching Adblock and try uBlock Origins instead. That's what I use on my laptop.

    User banned for inserting links not relevant to topic. This user has no intention of solving the issue, only in getting a post with a 3rd party link. Thanks for posting in this thread and trying to be helpful.

    I'll close this thread and it will settle into the obscure oblivion...
    Thanks.
