You can not run Firefox for mobile on the T Mobile Comet. Firefox for mobile requires a processor that support the ARMv7 architecture, but the T Comet Mobile has an ARM 11 processor which uses ARMv6 architecture.

Thank you Tony, I had no idea it was impossible due to the processor. Do you have any recommendations for another web browser like Opera for instance? Thanks again.

It looks like Opera does work on your device - http://mobilestore.opera.com/us,en,usd/18661,T-Mobile-Comet/index.html

I am not the best person to make recommendations about software for mobile phones, my mobile is so old it can do little more than make phone calls :)

appreciate your time...thanks again.
