Why do I have to go to google to download this app?

I do not use Google. If you are controlled by Google please let me know so I can make other choices.

Is there an APK repository or on your site I can go to for the android app?

Thanks

Firefox on Samsung phone A32 (Android): how to check for updates

Firefox on Windows works extremely well. On my cell phone (Samsung A32) it also works very good but I cannot find anything in the Settings or Help (again on the cell phone) to check for updates?

While browsing a site the site responded by saying my browser (i.e., Firefox) was not up to date.

I immediate went to find a "Check for updates" button in either Settings or Help. I could not find anything.

I assume the cell Firefox is up to date since the latest rev is shown as 122.0 and dated in late January 2024 but there is no button within the cell phone App to verify this.

Could someone suggest how to check on my Android cell phone (Samsung A32) if the Firefox is up to date?

Appreciate any suggestions.

I tried to update Firefox tonight to the latest version and I got a message telling me that it couldn't install the update so I cleared the database and cache and restarted my phone and when that didn't work, I uninstalled the Firefox app and now it says it can't download the app so I'm without Firefox until I can get this fixed.

In Find and install Add-ons on Firefox for Android, the author described the method to update addons: update Firefox and the addons will be auto-updated. That, however, didn't take place when I update. The addons haven't ever been updated since the first installation! And I believe my network is always stable. Could you please tell me how to update my addons manually? Uninstalling them and then reinstalling surely solve the issue, but bother and cause the loss of my settings.

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

Install an update is the closest I can come to what I need. I have more than five devices in my home that I would like to use with Mozilla VPN. I really don’t want to create another Mozilla account in order to add more devices. I don’t mind spending more money. What do I do? Is there a commercial account option?

Seriously, this is 2024 not 2004. Fuck your message board help system that offers no help to a problem of lost data. No way to get live help. Then, logging in to ask for help forces you through all these pages that route you away from where you're trying to get help.

Nothing about this process is use intuitive and it's certainly not helpful.

I regret coming back to Firefox. Fuck you for losing my data you pos devs.

I just discovered that the android phone (Samsung A71) I am currently using was in fact still using Lockwise for Auto Fill.

How do I force this old copy of Lockwise to do a final sync before I uninstall it. I do know that at least some of the passwords stored in it are up to date. At this time, I DO NOT have access to a PC. I DO have access to a more recent android phone (Samsung A53 5G) that DOES NOT have Lockwise installed and is using the most up-to-date version of FireFox for Android.

Also is firefox typed out in lowercase or one of these ways: "Firefox" or "FireFox"? I have a habit of camelcasing some computer terms left over from my days as a UNIX Administrator (AT&T Bell Labs versions and not any BSD versions) and want to know the proper way to type it (from the horse's mouth so to speak).

Regards

Hello,

I have an android. Google play hasn't worked in forever. No great loss except when you hit the button to send a download it takes you to Google play. It used to give you the link and installs it. Silly me I deleted Firefox to clear space just for a short time until I got the new sandisk over a year later I still can't get the link. Why do we have to go through Google play? Never had to do it before, it's okay if your looking for something but if you know what you need and the website why oh why oh why make you go somewhere else. It's sillyness.lol Anyway. Where can I get the link without using Google play.....and I had techs walking me through it first days trying to fix it when office 365 stopped working when I was in college. No one could fix the Google or the 365
