Hi guys, I am a big fan of Mozilla, they are making great products. My question is, although I am using Firefox both for mobile and desktops, the installation file of latest mobile version of firefox mobile doesn't appear on the ftp servers. Where can we installation file on the ftp servers rather than play store?

After the build 68.9, the new releases did not get published.

Also they are not on the candidates section too.

Serhan, I released your replies from the moderation queue. They were flagged for a review of the links you provided.

Mozilla discourages use of third-party downloads from places like the apkmirror site. The github link is the preferred download location and is linked from this Mozilla Support article:

Install Firefox on your phone or tablet (quote) Install from Mozilla's download server
Installation of the latest Firefox for Android version from Mozilla's download server is not currently available but may be offered in the future (bug 1663735).

Advanced users: Available Firefox for Android APK downloads can be found on the fenix project releases page at https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/releases and will be linked from the "Assets" drop-down list. Starting with fenix version 82, APK releases are automatically uploaded to Github.

Hi

The version that gets security and stability updates is only available from the Google Play store.

ok, let's say, the latest version for firefox mobile for my play store is 79.0.5, but the latest version is 80.1.1 for Firefox Mobile.

The latest version I downloaded from is apkmirror.com. It would be nice if they keep releasing it on their ftp servers.

I strongly recomend against sideloading apps from other sites and only using and getting updates from the Google Play store.

Yeah, sure. One question: How do I fix this problem if no play store is available?

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
