RSS, autocomplete URLs hit new Android Firefox beta

The location bar on Firefox for Android now disappears automatically to save screen space. It re-appears when you swipe down from the top.

Mozilla debuted a new Firefox for Android 23 beta (download) on Thursday that brought with it a flatter but more Web-friendly version of the familiar browser logo.

The new logo has been designed, wrote Sean Martell, Mozilla’s Lead Visual Designer, with “SVG compatibility and color consistency” in mind. It doesn’t ditch detail just for the sake of it, he said in his blog post about the change, but actually adds more detail in some areas.

One major detail he pointed out that has changed is the fox’s arm. It now comes from its shoulder, instead of the middle of its chest like a disjointed orange tongue.
