So the new-and-improved Firefox for Mobile, that thing I've been working on for the last ~8 months, is finally out. If you have an Android smartphone (ARMv7 processor, Android 2.2+) you should try it out! You can get it from Google Play.

The current release doesn't support tablets, unfortunately, but if you have a tablet and want to try out the new awesomeness, you can grab the latest Aurora build or if you're feeling adventurous, the latest nightly build. Those builds also have many more improvements that didn't make the release cut, so if there's something you find lacking in the release version feel free to give those a spin or let me know and I can file a bug.

What problem are you seeing with desktop Fx13?

It's this bug - https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=753251

It's definitely new in Fx13 and it's present in the latest Fx14 build as well. It seems to be some subtle interaction between Adblock and whatever has changed in Fx13's rendering side. Oddly, disabling and re-enabling Adblock seemed to have (at least right now) taken care of the problem. I'll keep at it until I can develop a test case.

Thanks, I'll keep an eye on the bug and see if there's anything I can do to help it along as well. The info you provided should be really helpful for whenever QA finds some time to try and repro it.
