    I do NOT take any credit for this. All credit should go to Mozilla for bringing Firefox to armv6 devices.​

    I know this is pretty old news. :p But I'm doing this for people who don't know how to. ;)

    Here's the link to download Firefox onto your LG Optimus V: Firefox Alpha armv6.apk - File Shared from Box - Free Online File Storage

    If that download didn't work try this:
    Firefox Alpha armv6.apk

    You don't need to be rooted to install it.

    Instructions for noobs: :p
    1. Download the apk file onto your phone through the browser.
    2. Go to your settings then applications and check unknown sources.
    3. Find the apk file with a file browser like Astro File Manager.
    Link for Astro File Manager: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.metago.astro&hl=en
    4. Open your file manager and go to the downloads folder.
    5. Click on Firefox Alpha armv6.apk
    6. Install and enjoy! :D

    If it opens like a HTML Viewer, try this:
    1. 'Long press' on the file
    2. Choose Rename
    3. Erase everything and type ' Firefox Alpha.apk'
    Make sure you have the '.apk' at the end! :)

    I tested this a while back. I liked the interface, especially the execution of the tabs, but the incomplete features keep it from being a daily driver for me. Thanks for keeping this potentially great browser on everyone's radar!

    Broken how? Didn't install? Didn't run? Stole your checkbook and ran off with your girlfriend?
    What happened?

    *face desk* yeah maybe a description would be a good thing.

    Install using a file manager(obv), launched the app, once launched it stayed at a white screen.

    Ah, now we get somewhere. I'll check the md5 of the apk I have so we can compare. Might be a bad download. For the record, did you try uninstalling and re-installing?

    brotherswing:The md5 sum is only for the specific download site that you used. Maybe you could include the actual link so members won't be thinking it's a bad download if they use the alternate site.

    I used the second link in the OP, so the md5 could be calculated from that....

    Try downloading it twice more to different folder locations. Then grab something like winmd5free and calculate checksums on all three. Now that I think about it, that's a lot of work. It's up to you, but that's what I would do.

    Man, I installed this package 3 times and couldn't find it on my OV---finally wised up and realized they were calling the app "Nightly". Doh!
