I want to install firefix on an old Samsung with Android 4.1.2 I know, its not supported any more. That old samsung is for a very special perpose and will not have any personal data, therefore security is not a problem. Which firefox version will run? Where can I get the APK? Regards Richard

I've got an old Kindle that is running some early version of Android 4. I have Firefox version 55.0.2 running on it, which I think is the final version that would run on something that old. You could try to side load that version. I found it here: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/mobile/releases/55.0.2/ I think you will need to know which hardware architecture to choose for your device.

Hi

It is not so much that Android 4 is no longer supported (although, yes that is a concern), it is that Firefox for Android has not been built to run on a version of Android that old. Even with the file, it would not work correctly on a version of Android that old.
