      Yeah, they are finally taking Android x86 and Orange Pi users into account.

          Firefox for Android also now has Pull to Refresh enabled by default
          Oh good, one more thing I have to remember to turn off whenever I change devices.

            It only seems weird because most people think of smartphones when Android is mentioned. But it turns out Android is also used on many SBC platforms and embedded devices.

              I had an x86 tablet with Android+Windows (deleted Windows) so this feature could be useful for me. Had because eventually internal eMMC died and now I am thinking what to do with it - its hard to find a service in my location capable of soldering a new chip and using it with USB constantly is not really comfortable.

                I don't think so. There are quite a lot of areas where no contender is in sight.

                  The Screen Wake Lock API is a way to prevent the device from dimming or locking the screen when the web page/app is running.
                  Good, might end an annoyance. Currently when watching videos in FF, I've had to disable my screensaver.

                    Well, this is the way that the mobile browsers that 99% of people actually use work (i.e. Chrome and Safari), so it seems sensible that the default behavior on Firefox mobile would be the same.
