Mozilla is not planning a realease of Firefox on the iPhone, instead they will increase the functionality of the app Firefox Home.

Mozilla has announced that they have no plans to develop a version of Firefox for the iPhone and iPod Touch. However, they are planning to extend the functionality of Firefox Home, an app that lets you access your Firefox desktop history, bookmarks and tabs on your iPhone.

Mozilla is planning on providing access to more Firefox data on your phone and add social functionality. Here is a list of some of the functionality they have in mind:

  • Synchronize passwords to your phone so you don’t have to type them in anymore.
  • Better integrate with new iOS4 features and other native applications (such as Youtube, Maps, Mobile Safari etc.)
  • Bring other Firefox customizations such as search engine preferences.
  • Bring your Firefox Panorama settings and tab groups to your phone.S
  • Some of our more experimental features will allow you to easily share links, reviews and comments with your friends on Twitter, Facebook or other social networks directly from Firefox Home.
  • Build the ability to provide feedback and get help with any issues directly from within Firefox Home.

Mozilla also would like to hear your ideas on how to enhance the app. Check out the forum for more information.
