Description

DEPRECATION NOTICE

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:

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

Description

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.

Anti-Features

  • 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.

Maintainer Notes

We can try to automated binary updates like this...

... and have a text file with %v and %c to keep it updated... or have a script to poke the "always" working https://download.mozilla.org/?product=fennec-latest&os=android&lang=multi.

Binaries in repo for now, build process is large and complex. The binaries are very well hidden - Mozilla appear very keen to force use of the proprietary market. They come from here: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mobile/releases/

The HTTP update check no longer works because they stopped putting any useful info alongside the binaries.

Starting with 33.0 Firefox contains gms play-services due to chromecasting capabilities.
