The minimum iOS version required early on was iOS 8.2 ex: https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/ios/1.1/system-requirements/ https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/ios/2.0/system-requirements/ https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/ios/9.0/system-requirements/ Then for Firefox 10.0 and later for iOS the minimum as been iOS 10.3 though best to have iOS 12+ to fully support features. The current Firefox version for iOS devices is 14.0 https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/ios/10.0/system-requirements/ https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/ios/12.0/system-requirements/ https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/ios/14.0/system-requirements/

The downloads are not from Mozilla but from Apple App store.

The links I posted were to show the iOS requirements.

Yes, unfortunately Apple controls all its apps like that.

Since we make our browser open-source regardless we post the source here: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/firefox-ios/releases

Although I don't see a installable format like a .ipa file for iOS or a .dmg file as you would install on OS X/Mac OS. So I don't think you can simply rename the .zip file to .ipa & install it that way. B/c it needs to be compiled. Especially since Apple doesn't let you sideload apps & forces you to install everything thru the App Store.

A much more technical breakdown of a .ipa file here: https://stefan.arentz.ca/2017/01/27/whats-in-the-firefox-for-ios-ipa/

Going a bit deeper, you could look here to try to learn a bit more about what could be done to install an older Fx for iOS: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/8pg9rr/last_firefox_version_compatible_with_ios_935/

It seems to be possible & the last step including iTunes seems to be the easiest solution. Anyway, let me know how it turns out! I'd be very interested to know. :)
