    The browser came out today for android, but it's shows up in the marketplace and says not compatible with your phone. Why ?

    The optimus v and droid 1 do not have big enough processors to handle Firefox

    It's the same reason flash doesn't work, it requires a armv7 cpu and this phone has a armv6.

    Good to know. This will save me the trouble of repeatedly checking back with Firefox to see if they've got it available yet, now that I know that the V just isn't compatible. *ptht* Oh well.

    Flash seems to work fine on my stock Droid1. But not Firefox, the prior versions would lock up, and now the android market tells me my device isn't compatible so I can't test later FF versions.

    Because Firefox stopped supporting ARM6s.
