Some thoughts....

So I installed the Firefox on my Nokia N900. It looks great but I found it to be slower than the default browser MicroB.

- Any ideas how to make it faster? (or maybe there is some new build on way) - Is it possible to have the top bar drop when i click on it (since it scrolls with the page). (addon maybe)

We're working on the speed. MicroB, the Nokia browser, uses a GTK-based UI with a separate content process. That allows it to be faster, but keeps it from using the same extension model as Firefox. One of the main areas for future work on FF for Maemo is moving to a multiple process model where we keep the same extensible UI using the Gecko framework we have now, but we move the actual page rendering and plugin handling to a separate process so it can run without interfering with the responsiveness of the UI.
