Move Firefox app to external storage?

Posted

Hi, I'm running into trouble with my Firefox on Android as it grows bigger and bigger in terms of storage space. Now my device is full and I can't even update apps anymore.

Most of my apps can be moved to external SD card. I have heaps of space there. But Firefox does not allow to be moved (under app settings, storage). So I am wondering, why does Firefox not allow moving? Why does it have to sit on my internal device storage and block everything else?

Please change that setting in the app so I can move Firefox to external storage and free up my (little) internal device memory. Or do I have to buy a new phone just to use Firefox? Or rather use a different browser...

Thanks!

Seriously, because external storage is corrupting files? So why all the other apps work just fine from external storage? Maybe your device has a broken SD card then?

Looks like I have to go for a different browser.
