Do firefox have mirror to download the firefox apk directly?

Chosen solution

https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/#product-android-release (versions for ARM and Intel CPU's)

Also https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/mobile/releases/

Note you do not get Firefox updates this way.

Firefox is a web browser as Mozilla is the company.

Basically you can download the APK from Mozilla, however you won't receive auto-updates (obviously): https://download.mozilla.org/?product=fennec-latest&os=android&lang=multi

Firefox wants to be the privacy-friendly alternative to google chrome. Unfortunately you can't download it without registering a google account and so therefore agree to googles privacy policy

As ChiefMike already said, the latest version you can download directly from Mozilla is 68.11.0

Please give users with an google-free android the possibility to use an up-to-date firefox. Also there should be a hint next to the appstore/playstore-download-button for direct download, so its' easier to find.

Found this on a Mozilla CI website, seems to be the latest production version, but if this is secure or the same build like in playstore, I can't tell: https://firefox-ci-tc.services.mozilla.com/tasks/index/mobile.v2.fenix.fennec-production.latest/armeabi-v7a

i've found a solution for myself: github

here the link to the official and verified releases of firefox android: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/releases

check for latest verified release, which isn't beta and includes apk-files. you have to click on "assets" to see the files. for my phone installed the arm64-file

there are no automatic updates, but if you install a newer version later its updating the existing firefox-app

I’m unhappy with the new Firefox for Android: Thank you for giving the new Firefox for Android a try. We're listening to your feedback and are aware that some of you may be experiencing technical issues, missing add-ons, or unhappy with how the browser works or looks.

We’re working hard to make improvements with every release. In fact, here’s what you can expect to see in Firefox for Android within the next three weeks:

View your tab history with a long-press of the back button See frequently visited top sites on your Firefox home screen Access your downloads directly in Firefox Edit your saved logins or choose to never save them on specific sites Set your tabs to auto-close and easily restore them later Force a tab to refresh

You can see the full list of improvements we’re working on here. We really appreciate your patience as we work hard to make Firefox for Android better than ever.
