Is there a safe and legitimate way to download Firefox on Android without using Google Play or signing into the phone with a Google account? I tried to navigate to the official download page but the only option I can find is to use Google Play which requires sign in. Searching online just leads to alternative app stores and sketchy apk files that I'm not so sure if I can trust.

I've heard a lot of good things about Microsoft opening up their platforms for developers. I literally used Firefox, Firefox sync, and enjoy Firefox as my default browser. I've seen a few posts saying Mozilla isn't currently developing for Windows Phone and I'm just wondering why. I know there is a demand for it. It would dominate the Windows Phone market for sure. I'd really like to see it come to the platform so can someone explain why specifically it isn't? What restrictions are still being faced if any?

Mozilla quoted "Firefox has stopped development for Windows Mobile indefinitely. Thank you to our contributors for their continued support and feedback. The last release for Windows Mobile was 1.1 alpha 1 (download). We have stopped developing for Microsoft's mobile platform because Windows Phone 7 no longer allows developers to build C++ applications like Firefox, and Microsoft's new policies ban open-source software like Firefox from the Windows Phone Marketplace."

Will they now start to continue to support Windows Phone 8 because Windows Phone 8 now supports C++

I am very surprised that an excellent browser like Firefox is not available for download either at the App Store or on your website for IPAD & IPAD Mini. I have already installed on my Mac. Is this an over site or do you not plan for Firefox to become available to download on IPAD & IPAD Mini? Please let me know - Thank You.

If Google Chrome successfully manage to get a full amazing webrowser for iOS, how on earth does Firefox still not manage to be able to get it for iOS as well??? I dont believe a cent about the rules that there is certain files that firefox use and Apple does not agree with it. Just built a darm full Firefox browser for the iOS. Sorry but android is a piece of crap world. iOS is much better. I am a big firefox fan and use it for my windows laptop and i am the one installing every client of me firefox instead of using crappy internet explorer. IE9 did improve but it still wont replace my alltime best firefox browser. I been using firefox since 3.6 version been out about 2-3 years ago. Its amaze me that Firefox are not able to build one for iOS. Big mistake did you know iOS are extremly popular? It trash the android. I hate Galaxy series. Its lagging as hell. Build one for iOS please! Awaiting for feedback what might happen in the future. If its possible then its a great news. I can wait as long it will have a project. No wonder Firefox Home has been removed from Itunes Store. What a crap app is that for Iphone? Just for bookmarks?? Sorry its not good. At least thanks for trying. There must be a way to create a full browser for iOS. If Google Chrome could so could Firefox!!! Also I am using Chrome rather than safari. It is amazing browser. But I wish firefox were available and I would downloaded firefox without a second thought. Let me know what you guys think! Thanks for everything and also could you tell me why does firefox windows browser release version so quick? For me there is no big difference between 4.0 and 17.01. Thanks. The design needed to update now. Kind Regards

Untill I had to close my account with a, say ex~pensive, ie; uncaring web service org, I had Thunderbird installed on my PC. It worked very well until that firm got stinky. I'd customized it and enjoyed a great experience of usage, being able to use the layout by repurposing it for job hunting, with great results, until I had to close that providers account. Relevant to that, is TBird available for android systems? Thank you for your efforts over the years, it's been great.

The browser on my Android tablet is not supported by many sites. I want to install Firefox but the Mozilla site directs me to Google Play. That does not help as my browser is not supported by Google Play!!! I've tried downloading various installers (using my desktop and then transferring to my tablet) but have not been able to get them to install on the tablet. I have also downloaded APK files from various sites (that I believe are trustworthy) and none of the APK files work. My App Installer will not install the APKs. Now what? I'm stuck in a Catch22. Where can I get a 'known good' installer that is trustworthy?
