Firefox is not available for the iPad.You are probably trying to download Firefox Home.Basically Firefox home is Only used for Syncing.Apple doesn't allow us to put a browser on the iPad(or any iOS device). So, if you don't want to sync with your windows computers, there is no use for Firefox home for you.

What the Firefox Home app is http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/mobile/home/ https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox-home

Any particular reason why you are trying to install Firefox Home as did you think it was a web browser and not a app to sync Firefox information from desktop to Safari on iPhone/iPad ?

There is no version of Firefox browser for iOS due to Apple restrictions.
