Currently, in download for GNU Linux, there is only tarbal option. As far, as I known, Mozilla provide official flatpak package on flathub. Offering tarbar creates some problems. Most important is update problem. Flatpak automatically inform about new version of browser. Also, there is security and compatibility concern.

I propose to include: - Download network installer (flatpak ref file) - Download Firefox (flatpak bundle) - Download tarbar if two above fails (some distro do not support flatpak)
