Windows CE is an entirely different beast on its own compared to Windows XP. Therefore the ability for software to run on it is possible, but takes far longer to achieve.
Mozilla have already stated that they've stopped work on supporting it at this time.

Many of the features one takes for granted in XP, Vista and 7 are not possible under Windows CE. Everything has to be specially made for it.

Minimo (from "Mini Mozilla") was a project to create a version of the Mozilla web browser for small devices like PDAs and mobile phones.
...
The first public build of Minimo for Windows CE was made available in February 2005.
...
On November 27, 2007, project head Doug Turner announced that the project was no longer supported.[2]

By 2008 Doug Turner had begun on yet another mobile web browser, this time known as Firefox Mobile or Fennec.
