You can grab the latest .apk on a PC from Mozilla's FTP server and sideload it, as noted on Mozilla's wiki. If you're unsure of how to sideload an app, you can find a variety of methods in How can I install an app given only its APK file? (some require internet connectivity, many do not).
By far the easiest way to do this is to use Firefox as your web browser everywhere, and then use Firefox's built in sync functionality. This will (optionally) sync not just your Bookmarks, but also your History, your Saved Passwords and your Preferences, and let you see the recent tabs you've had open on different machines. Start by installing Firefox for ...

There's no direct relation between the Chrome Mobile and any Firefox version. What you can do, is to synchronize the information from your Chrome mobile to the Chrome desktop version, and then, using a desktop application, pass the bookmarks for any other browser.

From at least Firefox 11 onwards (may have originated in 10) you just need to tap on the address bar. The dropdown menu with the four tabs you mentioned (including Bookmarks) should appear when you do. This also applies to phones, though the tabs on the phone version appear across the top of the menu right under the address bar rather than along the left ...
There is indeed an extension which does this. It's called Phony and you should be able to find it if you use the addons search from within Firefox Mobile. After it's installed, you'll get a new drop-down entry in your preferences menu where you can choose your user agent (the most recent version actually has more choices than the picture below):
According to their bug tracker, WebRTC is currently broken on Firefox Android. You can get audio or video, but not both, and attempting to get both results in your getting neither. As for Chrome Android, it's only in the beta (M25 and later) and is disabled by default. To enable it, type chrome://flags into the url bar, then scroll down and find the ...
Firefox was never the default Android browser. The actual default browser is based on the open-source WebKit engine, which also powers the Safari browser on desktops, laptops and Apple's iOS-based mobile devices. In the other hand, Chrome is based in Chromium and offers more options and performance than the stock browser.
I don't see a FireFox extension that bring bookmarks to your phone permanently. There are a few suggestions in this question but they are designed more for sending links on a one-time basis. Getting the Del.icio.us FireFox add-on and the Del.icio.us add-on for the Android dolphin browser might be the best bet. (I knew I saw this somewhere on here... props ...
The answer to this question from eldarerathis is currently correct; now, though, ARMv6 support is in the works too, and it can be downloaded from Mozilla. (However, the Aurora build of mobile Firefox worked better for me than the nightly build last time I tried it; however, I have a slightly unusual device using a QVGA (small) screen and a keyboard).
Credit to Matt H's comment for pointing me the right way. If you follow through to the System Requirements page on their wiki, the HTC Wildfire is specifically called out as an unsupported device as it has an ARMv6 based processor; Firefox Mobile currently requires an ARMv7 compatible processor. They do have an experimental build for ARMv6 based devices, ...
Here's what i did. Assuming you've set up the sync process: Go to Firefox on your PC, click Bookmarks in the top right corner Choose Unsorted Bookmarks. This opened a new window for me where i could see a section called Mobile bookmarks that i hadn't seen anywhere else. Click and drag this Mobile Bookmarks folder to either Bookmarks Toolbar or Bookmarks ...

The Dolphin browser has an option to turn off images. I believe most versions of the stock browser have this capability as well. The 4.0.4 version can disable images via Settings ->Bandwidth management -> Load images, and I'm pretty sure that the Gingerbread browser had this capability as well.
Android never removes applications from its memory, unless it has no memory left, then it initiates a low memory warning to unused applications and kills them when needed... Android WebViews (The default android implementation of web browser) consume lots of memory, and so is Firefox's implementation of their web browser. Actually, Gecko (Firefox's ...
On Android < 3.0 or on Firefox v8 or earlier I think you still have to use the clunky, not-so-intuitive method. You swipe the screen to the left and it will reveal a sidebar on the right side of the screen which has the bookmark star. Press that and it bookmarks the page. How they expected to you to find this on your own I will never know. On Honeycomb ...
I've never used Firefox for Android, but if it is the same as other Android browsers, then you should be able to create a home screen bookmark and choose which browser to open the bookmark in (unless you previously saved defaults, then you need to clear the defaults first).
