I have recently bought my first android tablet and (after installing WR Mobile!) I downloaded Firefox because I am used to that on my PC.
Whilst looking through this forum I found a thread stating that only Google's native Chrome would be secure for browsing in Android whilst Firefox and other browsers would not be.
That thread is now over three years old and I was wondering if anything had changed and if I am vulnerable continuing to use Firefox?

I'm only replying to clarify this issue. On re-reading the comments to the previous thread on this issue that I linked to, I realise that I misunderstood what was meant by the 'native browser' that is secure when used with webroot mobile.
Obviously it is Webroot's own SecureWeb browser!
