I have a Motorola Bravo MB520 with Android 2.1.1 (I've only had it a few weeks and it is new). The phone is rooted. When I go to the firefox.com/m/beta in my phone's browser and click the "download for Android" I get an error message "Not found" "the requested item could not be found." I would really like to test the beta out as I am a devoted user and proponent of Firefox!

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Firefox will not appear in the Market for most phones with incompatible hardware. I believe the Motorola Bravo is supported. You can check if your phone is supported here:

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Platforms/Android

On some supported devices, a bug prevents Firefox from appearing in the Market. This may be related to the recent Market update. You can go to Settings/Applications and uninstall the Market update, then find and install Firefox.

Or, you can download the app directly from here:

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile/releases/4.0b3/android-r7/multi/

(Note: To download the app directly for an AT&T phone, you will have to search for instructions on how to "sideload" the APK file, since AT&T disables the option to install from non-Market sources.)

Thanks for the quick response!!! I was able to sideload Fenec, which, being a relative newbie to Android, I thought I would be able to do directly on the phone. One of the primary reasons for "rooting" the phone was to avoid the AT&T trap. Oh well, as long as I have my "Android Central Sideload Wonder Machine" software and can get apk files, I'll be all set!
