Mozilla is planning to enhance its Firefox Home app for the iPhone and iPod Touch, but has confirmed that a full Firefox browser is unlikely to appear on portable Apple devices.
Firefox Home is not a browser but provides access to a user's Firefox history, bookmarks and tabs through other browsers.
Improvements will see Firefox Home integrated more deeply with iOS 4 features, and native applications such as YouTube, Maps and Mobile Safari.
Other additions include the ability to synchronise passwords on a handset, and share links, reviews and comments with friends on Facebook and Twitter, directly from Firefox Home. The ability to provide feedback and get help is also to be added.
However, users are likely to be disappointed that a full browser version will not appear on Apple devices any time soon.
"People have asked about adding more browser-like features to Firefox Home, but there are technical and logistical restrictions that make it difficult, if not impossible, to build the full Firefox browser for the iPhone," said members of the Firefox Home team in a blog post.
"We are working to bring Firefox Home to BlackBerry and Symbian platforms in the coming months. We want to offer people access to their Firefox data no matter where they are, and these two platforms make up around 60 per cent of the worldwide smartphone market."
Mozilla is also requesting user feedback to enhance Firefox Home, and is investigating the possibility of creating an iPad version of the application.
