I'm trying to download Firefox onto my iPad. I have safari browser. It doesn't work.
hello, because of apple's restrictions it isn't possible to provide an independent browser on ios devices unfortunately.
madperson is correct; You can also see Is Firefox available for iPhone or iPad in my language?
There was a experimental browser project called Junior which used the same WebKit rendering engine found in Safari for the iPad due to Apple's restrictions.
edit correction: Junior actually makes use of Apple's UIWebView rendering component and not their own engine, which is limited to Safari.
