There's been a bit of consternation this morning at Hacker News when folks discovered that the Google Play Store was being blocked from the mobile view in the Firefox browser for Android. Switch to the desktop view, however, and everything worked fine.
So ... Conspiracy? Not so much.
If you tried going to play.google.com from the Firefox browser, you'd get a simple message:
This browser is no longer supported. Please use the Google Play Store app to access Google Play.
However, Google has told Android Central that it's no more than a bug, and it should be fixed soon.
So sit tight, Firefox fans. Help's a-comin'.
