AV and Firewall for Windows Mobile

There seems none, what if browsing a web page that has malware?

Also, even in windows store, permissions (or similar) need to be agreed for installation of some app.

So, doesn't look like WP is any better than Android.

Any must-install security app, and any green app that is privacy-friendly?

I don't understand why you think permissions need to be agreed means that the apps are unsafe. Unlike Android, all apps are checked by Microsoft before putting on the Windows Phone Store and you cannot install apps outside the store.

Malwares cannot make any changes to the system, because it is not from the Store and it will not have permission to affect your phone.

You don't need antivirus for windows phone. All apps are running in the sandbox. Only stupidly designed android phones need antivirus.

Permission is asked for apps accessing some sort of information like contact list. You can deny it. Apps won't access to these information if you choose "no"

I would like to use one app, but don't want them have extra access, that I don't know how to limit or turn off certain access for certain app.

Even MS check all app in App Store, they cannot check the web
But is it safe to browse web that has been hijacked?

They do not need to check the web, because any software which is not from Store cannot make change to the system.

    So the web browser won't bring in any damage when browsing Not safe web site?

Also, what about mms and email, will there be malware that can be installed automatically?

The apps have rights which it does not actually needed does not mean that it is unsafe to the system. It is just unsafe to your privacy. You can choose not to install if you disagree to grant those unneeded permissions.
