Hi Marian,

I'm cc-ing the list because I think this may be valuable information for
other people trying this on Android 2.3 devices.

Firefox works for me on my 4.3 and now upgraded 4.4 Nexus 4.

I haven't tried Opera Mini, but UC Browser works for me on my device.

It may very well be Android 2.3 causing all this trouble. Alternatively,
your phone may not have enough RAM to run these browsers.

At any rate, I'd say the bottom line is that the console.vv route will not
work for Android 2.3 devices unless we can figure out a browser that works
well enough.

To summarize, I've successfully obtained console.vv through Chrome,
Firefox, and UCBrowser.

The Admin console is not rendered well in any of those browsers, whereas
the User console seems to be rendered well enough in any of them. For the
User portal to be useful, however, we need to work around the double-click
requirement first. For reference, the issue is reported here:
