    Happens to me too, (got my nexus7 today). Often a page loads for a while and then just when the page seems to be done loading FF immediately goes "to background" (or does it crash?). I then click the "open recently used apps" on the menu and choose FF. The page then has to reload.

    Update: The developer seen aware of this according to google play comments. Hope for a fix soon.

    Note that Firefox beta, also available on the play store, works fine.

    Mozilla has acknowledged this issue and when Firefox updates to 17 next tuesday (which is what Beta is right now) it will fix the issue.

    I took Nate's advice and switched to Firefox Beta. Solved.
