Installs and updates the following browsers:
Browsers from Mozilla or based on Firefox:
Good privacy browsers:
Browser which are better than Google Chrome:
FFUpdater checks for updates in the background and downloads them as well. On Android 12+ or root devices, FFUpdater can also update the apps without user interaction.
You can improve the translation on Weblate. Current progress:
For advanced users: How to contribute
The applications are downloaded from these locations:
The main distribution method of FFUpdater remains F-Droid - this will not change. But you can use the APK files or the F-Droid repository to quickly install fixed versions.
You need to uninstall FFUpdater every time you switch between F-Droid version and my version. F-Droid will not show you new updates if you still uses the version from GitHub/GitLab.
My versions will be signed with this certificate.
The official F-Droid Android client sometimes has problems accessing the APK file from my F-Droid repository. But other clients like "Foxy Droid" work fine.
It seems that this F-Droid repository is sometimes a little buggy. If F-Droid fails to download FFUpdater, try to install the version from the official F-Droid repository first.
On the app page under the item "Versions" you can see from which repository (my FFUpdater repository or the official F-Droid repository) the app version was installed
27.06.2022: Mozilla Lockwise is removed from FFUpdater. https://github.com/Tobi823/ffupdater/issues/194
Mozilla ended support for the Firefox Lockwise app on Android and iOS, effective December 13, 2021. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-of-support-firefox-lockwise
02.01.2022: Styx Browser is temporary removed from FFUpdater.
Sorry for the premature end of Styx. But in the future the Styx browser will appear again. Currently styx is migrated to Fulguris base. When this is completed then Styx will return as well as in the Play Store. https://github.com/Tobi823/ffupdater/issues/101
02.12.2021: Firefox Lite is removed from FFUpdater.
Mozilla will end support for the Firefox Lite browser on June 30, 2021. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-support-firefox-lite
27.07.2020: Firefox Release/Beta/Nightly based on Fennec are removed from FFUpdater.
68.11.0 is the last released update for Fennec version, all Fennec browsers are deprecated. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1627518
Use Android Studio to clone and run the app. Nothing special needs to be done.
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
