A laptop is basically a more portable all in one desktop computer. Though some laptops are so slim now that they can be folded and used much like a tablet if one wanted to.

iOS is the mobile OS made by Apple and is used on iPhones, while iPads use the similar iPadOS. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IOS

Android is a OS used on cellphones, tablets and also can be found on some Tv's, media player boxes etc. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_(operating_system)

You can download Firefox for Windows at https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

It may ask during install if you want to sync your Firefox to another device which is optional and not required.
