Firefox currently has 3 different versions for Android. 1. Firefox Nightly 2. firefox beta 3.Firefox

Both FF nightly and FF beta are test software and seem to duplicates. Why not just have one test browser?

As mentioned in [1], Firefox "Fennec" has reached "end of support" (Version 68.11.0 is the latest you can get). Its successor is Firefox Daylight (codename "Fenix"). But I can't find a place at Mozillas webservices, where I can download an APK to install Firefox Fenix on my Android mobile device.

Using Google Play is no option to me, since I want to run a privacy friendly mobile device without any Google services. Privacy is my main reason, why I would like to use Firefox on my mobile device.

@Mozilla: Please provide such an APK download location for Firefox Daylight (Fenix), as you did with Firefox Fennec!

There is already a discussion about this topic in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293461, but this topic is about "Fennec APK download" and is marked as "solved", since a "Fennec APK downloads" had been provided. And there is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293483, talking about "Fennec nightly APKs".

Using https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/releases to download APKs seems to be a bit unreliable, since not every build has attached APKs.

So I start this new question, in order to find a solution for Firefox Daylight (Fenix) APK downloads.

Thanks you!

Google Play has updated Firefox to a new version which doesn't work as well as the previous version I had:

Start Screen I no longer seem able to customise (or I cannot find the options to do so)

Tabs are remaining open when I close the browser despite previously being set to close

My adblock plugin is no longer working

How do I go back to the previous version? Download an earlier APK and manually install?

A couple of weeks ago Firefox stopped downloading my daily paper. Today, I uninstalled Firefox & reinstalled it from the Google play store. It still won't d/l . The circles go around as if d/l'ing but it doesn't doit. I am using my Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. I prefer using the Firefox browser rather than Chrome because Firefox is faster and is my default browser. Can anyone help? Thank you.

Hello everyone!

I have been stuck on Firefox version 82.1.3 on Android since 2020-11-09. Firefox 83 was released some time ago and Firefox 84 got released a couple of days ago. No matter how many restarts or refreshes I do of Google Play, the most current version shown is 82.1.3.

- Does anyone know what's going on? Is this as it should be? - If this is as it should be, why does Mozilla keep announcing new versions without informing the users that version releases on Android are lagging?

Thanks!

Hello,

As the title reads, I'm trying to keep my browser settings including all the tweaks I have painstakingly made to "about:config" as well as the extensions.

I have done this before on a windows machine and it's quite straight forward in just having to copy the profile folder to the firefox installation in the appdata directory on another machine.

I have gained root access on both devices and a root permissioned file explorer to copy the profile to an SD card that I can trasnfer between the phones. Once the profile folder is copied to the data/data/org.mozilla.firefox/files/mozilla directory and the fresh installation of firefox executed on the new device, firefox instantly crashes.

What am I missing?

Does Mozilla have an approved way of getting Firefox for Android users who have a build without the Play Store? For example, /e/ or other flavours of degoogled LineageOS?

Previously (for example, when this question was asked in 2017: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1164894) the APKs were available from mozilla.org.

However that no longer seems to be the case with v79 and higher releases. What's the recommended way for non-Play Store users to get the latest Firefox?

Suddenly Firefox updated on my Android phone and now none of my addons work, including my password manager and cookie manager. When I open the support link it opens to Firefox for Android beta Solutions. Addons are one of my main reason for using Firefox. Every article I've seen says there is no way to downgrade. If that's true I'll be switching to another browser that supports Chrome extensions, whether this version (79.0.4 (Build #2015757667)) is actually beta or not. Forced, irreversible updates with no warning that break critical functions. This is why I don't like the whole app store system, and again if true, this is totally inexcusable. I know this free software is a labor of love on the part of the developers, but I don't think I can deal with this update. A bunch of patronizing articles explaning why "we know what's best" is no better than Google or Microsoft. Anyway this was a major inconvenience coming without even a warning.
