Nokia belle is a Symbian OS and Mozilla only currently supports Android 2.2+ for mobile Firefox.

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Platforms#Other_Platforms Symbian

   We currently have no plans to develop a full Firefox browser for the Symbian platform. See Mobile/Symbian for notes from an inactive project to port Firefox to Symbian.

You can file a suggestion around this, but please note that developing for other platforms does take a significant commit of time and resources (both to develop and release). If there aren't many users on that platform then it likely isn't going to get a version of Firefox. However, there may be someone in the community that wants to build Firefox for that platform

Hi there,

I guess there might not be too many symbian belle users, but nearly all those people who bought the n8 for hardware reasons might be willing to switch ... so there might be a huge crowd wanting to migrate from symbian compared to the tiny heap of people ready to abandon Android.

As I'm one of the lot heading for new shores I can just encourage you to develope something for belle machines. Really sorry, I can't help, would love to as I really love the mozilla approach to things *sigh*
