I am writing to seek assistance regarding a challenge I have encountered while attempting to install a custom add-on from a file.

I have followed the steps to enable the debug menu on Firefox Nightly, and I have also successfully downloaded the custom add-on in XPI format to my mobile device. However, upon navigating to the Add-ons settings, I am unable to locate the option to install the add-on from a file.

I have reviewed the official documentation and community forums for guidance, but I have not found a solution specific to my situation.

Could you kindly provide detailed instructions on how to install a custom add-on from a file on Firefox Nightly for Android? If there have been any recent changes or updates in this regard, I would greatly appreciate any information or resources you could share. Thank you for your time and assistance. I value the work Mozilla does to enhance the Firefox experience and am eager to resolve this matter.

Best regards, Saad

Hi Saad

Thank you for helping to test the Nightly version of Firefox for Android.

I think that you are missing a step in the process - you will need to publish the add-on to https://addons.mozilla.org/ to be add it to an add-on collection.
