Hi Melvena, I think the only version of Firefox that runs on Chromebook would be the Android version, through Google Play.

Or does your Chromebook have a way to run Linux programs?

I don't know what Linux is and whether or not it is on my Chromebook. At age 88 I am not adept at technology. Thanks for answering my plea for help.

Hi Melvena Melvena, Right now, firefox is the only relevant browser on the market that has nothing to do with chromium’s rendering core. Most of the newer Chromebook comes with support for Android apps, which means you can easily install Firefox from the Play Store 1. Open up Play Store on your Chromebook. 2. Do a search for Firefox Browser. While the Chrome browser is the default browser in Chromebook, that doesn’t mean you have to be stuck with it. With support for Android and Linux apps, you now have options to install the browser of your choice, including Firefox There are several Firefox browsers that you can choose from, namely the standard Firefox, Firefox Focus and Firefox Preview. Firefox Focus is a minimal privacy browser that blocks a wide range of online trackers. Firefox Preview is an experimental browser by Mozilla. If you are looking for a browser with the most features, installing the standard Firefox browser is your best bet. 3. After the installation, you will be able the use the Android version of the Firefox browser.
