Video: New – Firefox 1.1 for the Nokia N900

FireFox for N900 has been updated to 1.1. To download, point your N900 browser to firefox.com/m.

(It will open up App manager and may ask to add a catalogue, click add. It will download a 12.1MB file and you’re done)

  • Support for Portrait mode
  • New start page (with options to pick up previously browsed tabs, and see recommended add-ons)
  • Ooh – firefox has added gradual zooming with the volume buttons. Nice. (Not smooth like MicroB, or Spiral/Pinch but better than just double tap)
  • Add Search engine function
  • Save pages as PDF for later offline reading! That’s really cool, not just for offline reading but as backup/archive of articles/receipts/movie ticket/boarding pass etc. That’s one step up from the really easy print screen as you get more info that just what’s in the 800×480 display.
  • Forget password: if you lend your phone to a friend or don’t trust a site, just wipe your password.
  • Links and fields more tappable

N900 users, what do you think of FireFox 1.1? Has it pulled you away from the Mozilla based MicroB?

    Seems to open faster without looking like it’s crashing and throwing back to desktop for some 5 seconds.

    This firefox is still slow. I prefer MicorB. Moreover, I don’t understand why they put the adress bar on the top. It’s not ergonomic: you have to scroll up the page to access it. The logical place il like MicroB: put it on down.+
