Firefox is available through the android market but I can't download much of anything from there because my Android device is not a phone.

Will Firefox for Android run on my Froyo tablet?  If so, how can I get it?

    You can download the apk installer file here:

    Once downloaded you need to navigate to the file with a program like astro and then run the installer.

    You need to allow third party apps to be installed too:
    Menu>settings>applications  then check unknown sources.

    just click install in the browser on your desktop/laptop and the app will be installed on the tablet ... if you have configured your tablet with your google account and sign into market with this account

    enachemc, I have configured my tablet with a google account.  That gets me absolutely nowhere in the android market.  I do not have an android PHONE associated with my google account and the market blocks all my attempted downloads for that reason.
