Hi,

I'm sorry you had this issue, following is a direct link, but note that you may not receive update notices in the future so you'll have to keep Firefox up-to-date manually. http://bit.ly/fennecftp

There is work in progress to make Firefox mobile available in the amazon app store, see bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=690791

Thanks, Michelle

This solution doesn't work. It gets a blank web page that says "no text on this page". Bummer.

Everybody seems to have a way to get FireFox on Kindle Fire, but I have yet to find a scheme that works.

Firefox is no longer in the Amazon market due to Amazon modifying the binary we gave to them. It may be possible to install Firefox using the direct from the ftp link at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Platforms/Android#Download_Firefox_for_Android

Hello Michelle

It says the bug was resolved, but it's still not in the Amazon App Store for installing on my Kindle Fire. When does Mozilla anticipate Firefox Mobile will be available through the Amazon app store? Can't wait to sync with my Mac Desktop FF.

I just noticed most of these replies are from 3 months ago, there's something seriously wrong with this Mozilla! Letting this problem escape resolution is very unprofessional and inept! "Very Disappointing!" There is no way to install Firefox Mobile on Kindle Fire. Apr-10-2012
