Which Firefox version is best for an Amazon Fire 10 (7th gen) tablet??

Posted

I am getting all different answers each time I search. Also... I have changed my settings to accept apps from unknown sources but I think maybe another setting needs to be changed because my tablet stopped me when trying to download a version. Wants to direct me to the Amazon store which doesn,t have Firefox. I need an answer Asap please!

Mozilla wanted to put the Android Firefox on the Amazon appstore as Mozilla did have Android Firefox 9.0 up there briefly (in end of Dec 2011?). However it was found that Amazon modified and resigned the apk which caused update problems so Mozilla pulled it shortly after. Mozilla has contacted Amazon many times about modifying this policy, so far Amazon has been unwilling with no progress on this since.


You may be able to side load the Firefox .apk files to it. However not you will get Firefox updates this way. https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/android/all/
