Sorry, Firefox is not compatible with the Samsung Galaxy 3.

For a list of supported Android phones, see Will Firefox work on my mobile device??

Why is not Firefox compatible with Samsung Galaxy 3? Samsung Galaxy 3 runs Android 2.1 update 1.

Can I contribute, as a developer and tester, to make Firefox run with Samsung Galaxy 3? ;-)

Firefox 4 beta is optimized for phones with ARMv7 processors, so it will not run on phones like the Galaxy 3 with ARMv6 processors.

There are experimental (unoptimized) ARMv6-compatible builds available for testing from https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Platforms/Android

If you want to work on improving Firefox for ARMv6 phones, you can find development information at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Fennec and in the #mobile channel in irc.mozilla.org. If you download the Fennec source code, you will need to add the --disable-thumb2 option to your mozconfig file to build for ARMv6.
