Test on Mobile Devices with Firefox

Test on Mobile Devices with Firefox

  • updated 2 yrs ago

This guide teaches you how to use the Device Mode to approximate how your page looks and performs on a mobile device within Firefox.


With Device Mode you simulate the mobile user experience on your computer. This means, there are some aspects that the browser isn't able to simulate precisely. There can therefore be a few corner cases where the rendering will be different in the simulation mode vs on a real phone.

Open the inspector in Firefox

First, right-click an empty area on your website and select Inspect Element from the drop-down.


Simulate a mobile viewport

Click Toggle Device Toolbar    to open the UI that enables you to simulate a mobile viewport.
