Hello everyone, I have two questions: Is it possible to get a direct link from Mozilla for the android APK? Because I want to use Firefox but unfortunately it is not possible to download it from a reliable source. Since my phone does not come with Google play services I have problems with getting Firefox in a secure way.

And I changed the Huawei appgallery to region China and could download Firefox ( is it the same like the European/us version)? And why is it not available in Germany?

Thanks a lot.

Hi

You can obtain the official .apk from https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/releases, but please note that a) these may not update automatically and b) to install them involves turning off an important security control on your Android device.

I am note sure what you mean in your second question - please can you provide more information about what is happening?

Hello thank you for your reply.

I have a Huawei device and I can not find the app Firefox when the region is Germany. If you find it in the appgallery it says: not allowed in this region. However if I switch to region China I can somehow download Firefox. But I am not sure if it is different from the European version or not so that's why I was asking whether the Firefox in the appgallery is any different. Thank you very much.

That is different from the version for the rest of the world. It may be an older version and is designed to use Firefox Sync on Chinese servers.
