I am having my first experience with a Chromebook and downloaded Firefox. I got a tablet version, which doesn't work well for me on a big(gish) scren with mouse and keyboard.

I see from a variety of articles across the web that I should be able to install and use a Linux version of Firefox, but I can't find info on this here on mozilla.org Which is my preferred source when it comes to Firefox :)

So: Is there a step-by-step guide to installing Linux version of Firefox on a Chromebook?

Thanks.

I got all the way to the very last line.

When I typed

flatpak install firefox

in my terminal I got an error message:

mariusXXXX@penguin:~$ flatpak install firefox Looking for matches… error: No remote refs found similar to ‘firefox’

Is this an ARM chromebook or an Intel/AMD chromebook?

The sticker says "Intel Pentium Silver". So, I guess that makes it a "Intel/AMD Chromebook".

Otherwise, following TechRadar's guide, I get the same result as on my first attempt:
