Thanks, I fixed it now.

First impressions...It's really, really, really, slow, and it doesn't play youtube video (tested on a HTC Diamond).

Anyone else had better luck?

Tried on HTC Diamond too, the launch time is loooooooooong (50 seconds compared to 8 seconds with Opera) and the first page I tried opening was facebook.com - after double-tapping (I'm used to zoom this way from Opera) Fennec crashed. Didn't feel like trying again :)

ACID3 test : 68/100 where 1.0a2 scored 88/100
ACID2 test : failed where 1.0a2 succeded

Better boot time... will test more completely...

Quite fast on my TG01 but 1GHz processor should help :)

I have a HTC8925 and have replaced the LCD screen. The screen works but the keypad doesn't work. It did work visa versa (keypad worked and screen didn't work earlier). Any thoughts on what to check?
