I got a Google Nexus 5 last month. I discovered that in order to update Google Chrome, I had to have a Google Account. I have a Google Account but don't want to use it on my phone. Each time I start Google Chrome, a message comes up saying that a new update is available. So, I decided to try Firefox. I discovered that if I tried downloading Firefox through my phone on this site, I was asked to create a new Google Account or log in with an existing one.

I did some research and came across a question on this site that someone asked about how they wanted to download Firefox for their phone without using Google Play. Someone posted the link "https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile/releases/latest/android/multi/". I enabled the setting "Allow installation of apps from sources other than the Play Store". I was then able to download the file. I then installed Firefox.

Will I be able to update Firefox without having to use a Google Account since I downloaded Firefox from this website instead of the Google Play website? I want to keep Firefox on my phone, but not if I won't be able to update it without a Google Account like with Google Chrome. I already don't know if playback support is as good as Google Chrome, as when I went to one website where I could play a video in Google Chrome, the video wouldn't play.

Currently the Release and Beta builds will only get updated if installed by way of Google Play.

Only the Aurora and Nightly development channels (where 30.0a2 and 31.0a1 is currently being developed on) gets updates in manual apk install.
