    Well, I can’t get it installed to N900.

    When I go to with N900 and click the “for maemo”. It only installs Fennec 1.1. .

    Does not work with bbc iplayer on the n900, so stick to the default browser for that.

    Have managed to find the site below myself (no thanks to on the n900 =>which eventually points to >>…..<<= URL doesn't exist, watch your step ) and still it doesn't work ๐Ÿ™

    N900 gives "error: 404 Packages not found"

    While Packages.gz is present, Packages file should not be zipped.

    @Jezz: No, because it doesn’t support plugins (only extensions) so it can’t use the N900’s optimised Flash player.
