  • Fast JavaScript engine, using Mozilla’s “TraceMonkey” just-in-time compiler
  • Instant Web site ID and customized security settings for safe browsing
  • Available in more than 35 languages and counting

Friendly Touch Interface

  • Quick zoom: Double tap on a column of text or an image to zoom in, double tap to zoom back out [Ctrl-up and Ctrl-down arrows will also zoom in and out]
  • Panning and scrolling: Use your finger to scroll down a page and pan from side to side
  • View without obstructions: The browser controls and Awesome Bar get stowed away when you reach your website so you can use the whole screen to view the site. Just swipe your finger left or right and your controls and Awesome Bar reappear

Minimize Typing and Easy Navigation to Web Content

  • The Awesome Bar: The Smart Location Bar, or “Awesome Bar” gets you where you want to go with minimal typing. Touch the Awesome Bar and begin typing. As you type it will display websites that you frequently or recently have visited or bookmarked. It learns as you use it, adapting to your preferences and making your browsing more personal.
  • Easy access to any search engine: Tap the Awesome Bar to enter a URL or search term and send your search directly to Google, Wikipedia,, or Twitter with one touch. Add search engines for many websites using the Instant Web Site ID icon
  • Tabbed browsing: Thumbnails of your open tabs easily identify your open pages, so you can quickly move from tab to tab
  • One-touch bookmarking: Bookmark a website in one touch, and optionally tag it with a memorable term
  • Spell checker: Catch typos and misspellings in form fields
  • Form Assistant: Zoom in to form elements to fill out forms in close view. Form Assistant provides “next” and “previous” buttons to fill out fields with one tap

Sync Mobile and Desktop Browsing

Weave Sync: Sync your mobile and desktop browsing. Weave Sync synchronizes your Firefox history, saved passwords, bookmarks and open tabs between your desktop and Nokia N900. With Weave Sync, the Awesome Bar knows your browsing history regardless of which device you visited it on – home desktop, work laptop, or Nokia N900, so you can leverage years of desktop browsing on the first day you fire up your mobile device — even your saved passwords from your desktop can be used to automatically fill out forms. Weave Sync’s Get Up and Go feature lets you surf the Web on your desktop, get up and go, and have your open tabs ready and waiting for you on your mobile – just as you left them on your computer

Personalized Browsing

  • Add-ons: Customize your Firefox by adding features that help make your browser your own. Firefox is the first mobile Web browser to support add-ons. Add-ons like AdBlock Plus, URL Fixer, TwitterBar, language translators, and geo guides become especially handy when you’re out and about on your mobile. You can both discover and install add-ons directly from your Nokia N900. There are currently more than 40 Firefox add-ons available for mobile and the number is growing every day
  • Set your Preferences: Access your browser tools with one touch to get more Firefox product information, change languages (we support more than 35 and counting), manage content and privacy settings
  • Download manager: Download any file to your N900. The download manager shows download progress visually, will download in the background while you continue browsing, enables multiple simultaneous downloads, and enables you to stop, pause or resume downloads. Helper applications like the PDF reader will automatically launch if needed

Private and Secure

  • Customized security settings: Customize settings for passwords, cookies, loading images and installing add-ons for a fully empowered mobile browsing experience
  • Instant Web site ID (”Larry“): Tap on a site favicon for an instant identity overview
  • Password manager: Typing passwords on your phone is hard. Choose to remember site passwords and avoid long and difficult typing
  • Popup blocker: Banish pop-ups from your surfing experience once and for all
  • Clear private data: As an extra security measure, you can clear all your private data via your Preferences
  • Automated Update: You will receive notifications as soon as updates to Firefox are available. Install them right away, or wait until you’re ready

Under the hood

  • Leading Web Compatibility: Firefox for mobile gives Web developers more tools and features to create the next big breakthroughs in mobile Web content. Using open standards like HTML5CSS and JavaScript, developers can create fast, powerful, beautiful applications, and even tap into the unique capabilities of mobile devices like camera, geolocation and device orientation
  • Fast JavaScript engine: Uses Mozilla’s “TraceMonkey” just-in-time compiler, optimized for ARM processors
  • Location-Aware Browsing: Location-Aware Browsing saves you time by allowing websites to ask you where you are. It’s all optional – Firefox doesn’t share your location without your permission
  • Offline Browsing: Even if your mobile phone doesn’t have a Web connection, you can still have information at your fingertips. Certain enabled sites may allow applications—like your Web-based email—to stay with you at all times
  • Next-Generation Graphics: The rendering of text and graphics, including SVG andCanvas, is faster and sharper than ever before, thanks to our upgraded graphics engine. Firefox automatically color corrects images that have the color profile data included (like your digital photos) to make sure the colors are exactly as intended

A Global Community

  • Set your Language: Firefox for mobile is offered in more than 35 languages and counting. It’s been built and tested by a global community of people creating a better Internet
  • These local communities have gone beyond translation and may have also customized your Firefox browsing experience with local dictionaries and search providers
