Most Facebook games like zynga.com require Adobe Flash Player, which is also not available for BlackBerry.

Flash for BlackBerry might become available later this year: http://www.blackberrycool.com/2010/06/23/adobe-flash-10-1-released-to-manufacturers-including-blackberry/

Carrie, whatever software is on your husband's BlackBerry might call itself "Firefox" but it is not really Firefox. We have never published any version of the Firefox browser that runs on any BlackBerry phone. Sorry!

Hi abel70,
You're replying to a thread that is over a year old. You should use https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new where volunteers can get more details about your setup.

To answer your question, at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Platforms it says:

Due to the Java-based development system and inability to build C/C++ apps, the full Firefox browser will not be available on the Blackberry OS. However, a future version of Firefox Home may be available for Blackberry.

Because this thread is so old and more people might start using it for their own questions, I'm going to lock it.
