Video: New – Firefox 1.1 for the Nokia N900

| July 2, 2010 | Reply

FireFox for N900 has been updated to 1.1. To download, point your N900 browser to

(It will open up App manager and may ask to add a catalogue, click add. It will download a 12.1MB file and you’re done)

  • Support for Portrait mode
  • New start page (with options to pick up previously browsed tabs, and see recommended add-ons)
  • Ooh – firefox has added gradual zooming with the volume buttons. Nice. (Not smooth like MicroB, or Spiral/Pinch but better than just double tap)
  • Add Search engine function
  • Save pages as PDF for later offline reading! That’s really cool, not just for offline reading but as backup/archive of articles/receipts/movie ticket/boarding pass etc. That’s one step up from the really easy print screen as you get more info that just what’s in the 800×480 display.
  • Forget password: if you lend your phone to a friend or don’t trust a site, just wipe your password.
  • Links and fields more tappable


N900 users, what do you think of FireFox 1.1? Has it pulled you away from the Mozilla based MicroB?
