I was following this article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos

Installed flatpak and repositories but when I try to use flatpak to install firefox I get "No remote refs found similar to ‘firefox’".

I have tried following a few other ways to get it installed, such as using sudo and using sudo su but that has not worked at all.

I followed to flatpak quick setup on Chromebook guide that is linked in the above help article and created the nested containers in crosh as well.

below is what happens if I go to flathub and copy-paste their recommended command to install firefox.

Remote ‘flathub’ found in multiple installations:

  1) system
  2) user

Which do you want to use (0 to abort)? [0-2]: 2 error: Nothing matches org.mozilla.firefox in remote flathub

Flatpak... Schmackpack... ;-)) Just keep it simple and get it from Mozilla. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

Note that this is about installing Firefox on a Chromebook running ChromeOS

They cannot just download, unzip, and run on Chrome OS?

You can run Linux tarbal or flatpack (Linux) versions if the chromeOS is 80 or later

Which is why I suggested just downloading from Mozilla, unzip, and run. I would try Firefox Appimage to see if it works better than Flatpak.

https://www.techradar.com/how-to/how-to-install-firefox-on-a-chromebook was the link that showed up when I clicked on the google search link provided by cor-el. Following that example made me realize that my chrome book is a ARM chrome book and the command sudo apt install firefox-esr got firefox installed because flatpak doesn't work with ARM.

I tried this and I only got a folder with Firefox components that couldn't run as program.

You run the firefox .sh though the firefox-bin works to. The tarbal is just a archive for Firefox folder as there is not form of install. However since your Chromebook has a ARM CPU this will not work anyways as you need a AMD or Intel CPU that supports SSE2 at minimum.
