    The title says it all....I just wanted to know if anyone knows whether or not the upcoming Firefox Mobile app will work on our beloved BB's.

    Thanks for the reply. I was hoping it did. I've been getting a lil bored with my BB and need some new apps to play around with.

    Unfortunately, they are doing nothing more at this time than considering a browser for the BB - they give me the impression that they'll create a BB firefox browser if they run out of somrthing to do and not until.

    I wouldn't. I've been on their email/opinion list (or whatever it is) for quite some time and every time I get a chance to give them feedback I appeal to them to create a browser for Blackberries. They seem to be interested in the "other" smart phone market - I keep hoping they change their mind. They could call it "Berryfire."

    Or Fireberry, Or Berryfox, Just Create The Damn Thing Already. Why Would They Not Want A Browser For The Phone That Reigns Supreme In The Smartphone World???? Their Loss!

    Nobody wants to port the Gecko rendering engine from C to Java, and until that happens, there won't be a native Firefox browser on the BlackBerry. End of story, really.

    Bummer. Opera Mini is getting annoying. For me at least.

    Speaking of Opera Mini, does anyone know if there's a way to use the bb cursor instead of the old style scroll selector?

    aboogy, You can always go there and download whatever version they offer - your BB will tell you if it's the same or different version you're running before you download.
