Mozilla announced that starting December 14, users of the Firefox browser for Android will be able to install any extensions marked as compatible with Android. The developer promised that there will be more than four hundred of them, and the full list can be found in the Extension Store.
The Firefox browser for Android has supported installing extensions for over a decade, but the choice has been significantly limited over the last three years – Mozilla gave the app a major overhaul in 2020. In December, the ecosystem will reopen and users will be able to install extensions from a large catalog without having to spend time on debugging and other developer tools.
“We can say that for sure, on December 14th at AMO [addons.mozilla.org] More than four hundred Firefox extensions for Android will be available. We are very grateful to our developer community for supporting us during this exciting time.”— stated Firefox CTO Giorgio Natili.
Mozilla has already released some of the extensions, “to give an idea of what will happen next”. All extensions compatible with the mobile version of the browser are available in the corresponding version Section save.
