How do you install Firefox for Android without using Google Play?

Posted

Is there a safe and legitimate way to download Firefox on Android without using Google Play or signing into the phone with a Google account? I tried to navigate to the official download page but the only option I can find is to use Google Play which requires sign in. Searching online just leads to alternative app stores and sketchy apk files that I'm not so sure if I can trust.

Note the Release and Beta channel builds installed manually do not get updates so if you continue to use release you need to install each new version manually. The Aurora and Nightly channel builds installed manually do get updates however the updates can be almost everyday.
