Will Firefox and Thunderbird download and install on my LG840G?

Posted

I have an LG840G from Tracfone. I have been unable to determine which OS the phone uses but I think that it is Android. I want to install FIrefox and Thunderbird on this phone if possible as I use those two products on my PC. Thank you....

No not even mobile Firefox will work on it as the phone appears to be a feature phone with a smartphone appearance. It does not have any Android OS.

The desktop versions of Firefox and Thunderbird cannot run on Android, but if you visit the Google Play store from your device, you can search for the mobile version of Firefox. Will it install?

Firefox for Android requires a device that is well ... running Android. You are out of luck with a dumb-phone.
