Sorry but the Samsung S5830 Galaxy Ace has a older ARMv6 type of cpu when a ARMv7 is needed. https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Platforms/Android#System_Requirements

The good news is that Mozilla is looking to try and get ARMv6 Firefox releases in future.

Firefox 17 is announced compatible with ARMv6 Android 2.2+ devices Samsung Galawy Ace GT-S5830 (800MHz and 182MB RAM I believe) is on the "tested and verified compatible devices" but nope:

"Support for ANdroid ARMv6 phones with at least 800MHz processor and a minimum of 512MB of available RAM"

Goosh I wonder how many of the 250.000.000 ARMv6 Android devices will meet with the 800MHz and 512MB RAM requirements?
