As I suppose we are not all lucky enough to enjoy the last Nokia device rolleyes.gif to test Firefox mobile, here are some tips to have it on your desktop.

1. Go to this page and download your language version
2. install it
3. Build your language version of the extension you have just been translating (see how to)
4. Put your test extension on some place where you find it back (this tip is just for goofy guys like me)
5. Drop your test extension location (e.g /home/goofy/desktop/myGoofyTest.xpi ) in the address bar of your desktop Mobile Firefox and go, you should have the confirm intall interface for the extension
6. Quit and restart Firefox mobile and you can see what your translation looks lik.
Think Global, Make Locales!
