Firefox app

Posted

I mistakenly deleted the Firefox app from my Samsung tablet. I can search for the app download but clicking on the link shows No app found to open URL. Is there a solution to this problem? Thanks for any help.

Hi katlomas, what did you download, exactly? Was it a .apk file for Android or an installer for a different OS?

Usually it's best to install using the Google Play app. Is Firefox not showing up there? This is the web link in case it helps:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.mozilla.firefox&hl=en_US

That is the problem. I can't click on any URL link without getting the error message. I am using my phone for this question because it is my tablet that is affected.

Does your tablet have an unremovable default browser app that you could use for emergencies? I am surprised if it doesn't...

If not, do you have the Google Play app? It shoudn't need a browser, that link was just for reference in finding the Firefox app.
