When I try to install Firefox on my Steam Deck (Which came with the installer). It doesn't open. It just says "Cound not open appstream://org.mozilla.firefox because it was not found in any available software repositories.

Please report this issue to the packagers of your distribution." It shows it every time I open the installer ever since I got the thing.

Thank you but, I just got it like out of the box brand new.

Ignore Dropa as he does little research before replying and mixes things up as shown with mentioning Windows version when it is Linux and probably has never used a Linux distro before.

Updated Firefox to be installed as a Flatpak, rather than from the OS repositories, to ensure timely updates. First-time launches of Firefox from the desktop will now prompt for installation via the Discover Software Center, which will handle updates as they are published.

Try using the Flatpak version instead of looking in the OS repositories. Go to desktop mode, open up the Discover app center.
