I have a new Kindle Fire HDX 7" and I would rather be running Firefox(as I do on my: desktop/laptop/netbook/Macbook/ Galaxy3 phone/Ipod....as you can see I am a Firefox devotee!). Is there an app that is compatible with the Fire HDX? thanks!!!

Hello, you will need to change some settings on your Kindle: 1. Go to the Settings screen on the Kindle Fire 2. Select the “Device” option. 3. Select “On” for the “Allow Installation of Applications” option.

You can then download the .apk install file for Firefox directly from https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Platforms/Android

For devices without access to the Play Store, generally the Firefox Aurora version is recommended because it auto-updates...

Since you mentioned Ipod, there is no mobile Firefox from mozilla.org for Ipod or any other iOS devices.

Although the program installs but fails to run on the HDX so I'm afraid this answer is wrong. The HDX is the most recent release from Kindle(Amazon) the Settings are totally different. The hardware is also different. Please make sure answers are more up to date.
