Note that this package will soon be dropped from the F-Droid repo. Please consider using one of the following options for continued update support:
- Manually download latest version from Mozilla
- Firefox Aurora/Developer Edition - bleeding edge Firefox with automatic updates
We urged Mozilla to enable auto-updates for release builds in 2015 -- see bugzilla -- but the issue seems stalled. So even when you download Firefox manually, make sure you revisited the download link from time to time.
Estimate EOL date: 2017
Mobile version of the Firefox web browser. Uses the Gecko layout engine to render web pages, which implements current and anticipated web standards. Features include: bookmark sync, custom search engines, support for addons and the ability to enable or disable the search suggestions.
- Non-free Addons: The license of the addons may be seen in the version notes, but often are non-free. The marketplace has no license information on most apps.
- Tracking: Stats are sent back regularly to the developers, but that can be disabled via settings. Also some versions contain "Adjust" tracking software.
- UpstreamNonFree: Contains proprietary software, e.g. play-services.
