    There's no firefox app for iOS yet but there are a large number of browsers available, such as Mercury, iCab, browser+ etc..
    All worth taking a look at.

    Mozilla made a comment a few months ago that they cannot port Firefox to iOS because of the javascript restrictions that Apple requires their developers to use. Apple requires their developers to use Webkit.

    Here were the comments:
    We have no plans to release the full Firefox browser for Apple iOS devices. The current iOS SDK agreement forbids apps like Firefox that include their own compilers and interpreters:
    “3.3.2 An Application may not download or install executable code. Interpreted code may only be used in an Application if all scripts, code and interpreters are packaged in the Application and not downloaded. The only exception to the foregoing is scripts and code downloaded and run by Apple’s built-in WebKit framework.â€
    Other browsers for iOS use the built-in WebKit libraries (like Skyfire) or do not execute any JavaScript on the device itself (like Opera Mini, which uses a proxy server). But unless Apple removes these restrictions, full browsers like Firefox are not allowed on iOS.
