An Android app to install and update Firefox (and Beta/Nightly) for Android on your device, without using the Google Play Store.

Since Mozilla shut down their FTP server on 2015-08-05, non-playstore updates of Firefox have to be done by third-party apps such as this one.

Since I left F-Droid (and Android/Smartphones) about a year ago, I am looking for a new maintainer to take over. Unfortunately the upstream issue I opened years ago is still not solved in 2019. While Fennec F-Droid is back in the mainline repo and other binary repos do serve Firefox, some might still prefer this updater. So as I said: Maintainers welcome. The main task should be to test the last few merge requests (especially the background update stuff) and release a new version. New Maintainer: https://notabug.org/Tobiwan/ffupdater
