  • Add-ons
    * There are now over 100 add-ons for Firefox for Mobile, and counting.

    * Startup speed has improved visibly. This was a top request from Beta 3 users.
    * JavaScript is much faster - almost 15% performance improvement in Beta 4 compared to Beta 3.
    * Memory and CPU usage is reduced, making the browser more responsive and stable.

  • Android
    * Fixed several keyboard issues (top feedback from Beta 3)
    * Improved support for tablets (like the Samsung Galaxy Tab) and small-screen devices (like the Motorola Droid Pro)

  • Firefox Sync
    * Improved user interface for easy connection with desktop Firefox

  • User Interface
    * Added an option to resize text to fit the screen when you double-tap to zoom in, to optimize the reading experience. This feature can be activated in the Firefox preferences. (This is also based on top feedback from Beta 3 users.)
    * Many miscellaneous bug fixes, usability improvements, and optimizations for a better experience
