Carried out Corporation Mozilla simplifies the process of finding and installing add-ons for Firefox across devices AndroidWith the launch of Firefox 85 for the mobile operating system, you can install add-ons directly from the add-on website.
Most desktop web browsers have become so full-featured that many of the add-ons sometimes become useless or redundant.
But this is not the case on mobile, as the features available in the desktop versions are often absent or technically impossible to implement.
Plugins are still important across mobile browsers, and Mozilla is making a change that will make it easier for Android users to install these add-ons.
The issue of installing add-ons via computers is simple, by going to the application store for add-ons and clicking on the Install button on the extension page, but this is not the case for the new Firefox browser for Android.
For now, you must go to the add-ons manager in order to install the add-ons you want, a process Mozilla says: It can be a little confusing if you’re used to the ease of installing from the desktop.
But that will change when Firefox 85 launches on January 25, which is also the time when the install buttons will be published directly via the add-ons website.
However, the choice of plugins for Android remains very limited, and Mozilla hasn’t expanded the list much since it launched its new browser experience, based on its GeckoView engine, in August 2020.
And shortly after the launch of the new browser, She said Mozilla: They decided to build support for the plugins most used by mobile users to ensure a good first experience.
There were initially 10 add-ons organized in the list, and we still only see 12 on the plugins page. Mozilla said it will continue to work on improving more additions to the Android system in the coming months.
Currently, you should use the Firefox Nightly beta browser for Android Overflow To be able to install other plugins.
