Is there a version of Firefox that is compatible with an older Chrome OS version? Wondering if I can use it on an old Chromebox.

Chosen solution

hii doug The desktop Firefox for Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux will not work on Chrome OS.

It may be possible to install and use the Android Firefox on some Chrome books depending on hardware. However the Android Firerfox is made with tablets and phones in mind and not so much for Chromebooks.

Hmm, maybe an Android version. Some versions of ChromeOS run Android apps.

Thanks, I will look into those links. I'm on version 76 & can't update any further, but we'll see.
