Mozilla will no longer support Firefox on Amazon Fire TV or Echo Show
Mozilla recently revealed that it will no longer support Firefox on Amazon Fire TV or Echo Show starting on April 30, 2021. The Firefox browser landed on Amazon’s app store in 2017, and users can install and use this browser on their devices. At that time, due to a dispute between Google and Amazon that prevented users from installing official YouTube apps on Amazon devices, Mozilla’s browser became the first choice for Fire TV users to watch YouTube.
Although Amazon also has its own Chromium-based browser, Silk Browser, Firefox for Fire TV scored more than three times as many users as Amazon’s own browser. In terms of web browser and free application rankings, Firefox ranks ahead of Amazon’s browser.
At present, if a user visits the Firefox for Fire TV page in the Amazon App Store, the update will inform the user that the support of the mobile browser is about to end.
