    When Firefox 8 for mobile is released, it will come with security fixes, so Firefox 7 for mobile will be unsafe. But Firefox 7 for Maemo is the latest version on Maemo.

    In a previous revision in pending review, I was recommending to install Nidroid instead of Maemo in order to be able to run Firefox for Android. It has been edited by mluna with the following reasons: "remove sentence about nitdroid, we can't assert that user will be safe using anything but our current software. "

    Is the Mozilla policy: "throw away your N900 and buy a new Android phone if you want to surf safely with Firefox for mobile"?
