    @mario87 Are you aware of Fennec F-Droid? This is Firefox without the proprietary binaries and is kept up to date and maintained by @krt

    @krt can answer about this in more detail for you.

    To download please enable the F-Droid Archive repository and search for Fennec.

    @z751 Never heard of Fennec. Here is what I see at the Firefox description page

    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

    I assumed that the options listed are the only options we have. Didn’t know that there is an alternative. Thanks for letting me know.

    That is correct. Firefox will be dropped but Fennec will not be dropped. Fennec IS Firefox just without the proprietary software. They look and feel identical in almost every way so there is a good chance you may not know the difference. It will also continue to get the necessary security updates.

    Merging with https://f-droid.org/forums/topic/please-do-not-drop-firefox-support/. All questions should already be responded to there. If I fail to see the new questions, please re-phrase and I will do my best to answer them.
