Installation instructions:
Browse to Addons@Mozilla and install the version 1.2 or newer:

"OpenID for Firefox" at mozilla

Add to Firefox

Confirm the installation.
Add-on installation dialog
Restart the browser.

Configure Firefox Sync to sync your OpenIDs from your desktop machine to your Android device.

Browse to a site that supports OpenID. e.g.:

The mobile version of OpenID for Firefox does not have all the nice features of the desktop version. You can not (yet) choose between OpenIDs when logging in. I needed a few evenings to adjust to the differences in addon development between the desktop and mobile versions of Firefox. But now I am confident that I can implement an account chooser for OpenIds on Firefox Mobile soon.
