Mozilla has posted the first public beta versions of its latest Firefox browser for the Android platform.
The company said it is seeking out users to test the platform on their Android devices and provide feedback and bug reports.
The beta release promises to add a number of features to Android including support for Adobe Flash, faster page load and start-up times and improved text display.
The beta also brings a number of developer enhancements including the addition of the Pointer Lock APIs and the option of disabling display sleep settings.
Users should note, however, that the beta browser contains a number of known and unknown performance and stability issues. Mozilla has outlined a list of bugs yet to be addressed, including problems with GIF animation, full-screen Flash video and support for CSS pages.
The Firefox for Android beta can be downloaded for free through the Google Play service.
Mobile browsers have become a particularly contentious issue for Firefox in recent days. While development of the Android browser continues, the company has run into a roadblock with Microsoft over the ARM version of Firefox on Windows 8.
Mozilla claims that Microsoft is unfairly locking other browsers out of the platform by limiting third-party browsers to the Windows Metro interface. Government officials recently launched a preliminary investigation to determine whether the move could be a possible anti-trust violation.
