why cant I download firefox for my surface

Posted

I have noticed that there hasn't been an app for the Surface where I can download firefox. I do a lot of school work and I need to use firefox for some of it. It would be extremely helpful and popular if you could make a firefox app compatible with the Surface.

By Surface I am assuming you mean the Microsoft Surface RT. Microsoft greatly limits the software that can be run on Windows RT. These limits prevent us from being able to provide Mozilla Firefox for the Windows RT platform. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_RT#Restrictions_and_compatibility_limitations
