Hello! I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 on Android using Termux app. Once I run firefox-esr, it shows black screen. It's only browser, which starts. Chromium and Vivaldi aren't starting. What Can I do with It?

Hi

Please appreciate that your mobile device may not be able to run desktop apps.

What you are trying to do is extremely ambitious and you would be best served by using a browser designed for Android (such as Firefox for Android) on your device.

Im running linux, so i can't install firefox for android. Firefox-esr can run on raspberry-pi, so architecture ARM is supported. I see working firefox on that linux and some time ago, browser worked on my Android Linux. After update Firefox started crashing.

Can you start Firefox via a terminal window to see if there are specific messages displayed ?
