It looks like Apple has just green-lighted Mozilla’s latest application submission: Firefox Home. Home is a program designed to provide “access to your Firefox desktop history, bookmarks and open tabs on your iPhone.” If you’re an iPhone toting Firefox user, who loves to stay in sync, hit up the App Store and let the good times roll. We’ve got the full press release for you after the break.
Firefox Home, a free application, is now available for download on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Firefox Home provides access to your Firefox desktop history, bookmarks and open tabs on your iPhone. Get up and go and have exactly what you are looking for on the Web on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Firefox Home uses your browser data, securely synced from Firefox on your desktop to the cloud, to let you search and browse quickly and efficiently. You can view the sites you want directly in Firefox Home, open them in Mobile Safari or share them with friends via email. Your Firefox data is private and only you have access to it.
If you have Firefox Sync on your desktop, skip to step #3.

- Go the App Store on your iPhone and search for “Firefox Home” or install it directly from iTunes.
- Launch Firefox Home on your iPhone. You’ll be prompted to enter your Firefox Sync account info. Enter your username, password and Secret Phrase and tap “Done.”
