Sorry but the main reason why mobile Firefox does not work on this entry-level smartphone is because it has a older ARMv6 type of cpu when ARMv7 is needed.

There were experimental builds for ARMv6 up till early this year but the were larger, slower and had stability problems that the ARMv7 builds does not have.

These devices have ARMv6 processors and are not compatible with  Firefox for Android:
