Firefox Android not on "open with..." list

Talk about Mozilla browsers for small devices such as PDAs and cellphones.

If I select a URL in an email (by highlighting it), I get a pop-up window asking if I want to open it in the Google app or in the Dolphin browser (which I don't use but it is still installed).
Firefox is my default browser, how come it is not even listed? And how can I make it appear?

Thanks for any pointers.

Moving to Mobile where the Android version of Firefox is supported.

May require Firefox developers to register with this new Android feature.

On my phone, I get a menu that looks like this. Do you see something similar? (It's ASUS so it might be different.)

Sorry for long delay replying, been away.
I have to report the problem has gone away, in fact I'm confused by my own description (where I mention having to highlight the url text) as in every test I've just done, I can't make urls NOT appear as 'clickable' links.
And when one of those is selected a pop-up screen similar to the one the previous poster showed appears, which DOES offer firefox as an option.

Sorry to waste people's time, ill re-post if it happens again.

Return to Mobile
