How to Get Mozilla Firefox on Google TV [2 Ways]

Firefox on Google TV

Mozilla Firefox is the safest and fastest browsing web browser that you can use on Google TV. With a single click, you can access the private browsing mode, and thus the browsing history won’t be saved. It even helps to resume the streaming sites and web pages from where you left. Like Chrome, syncing your bookmarks and saved passwords across the devices signed in with the same ID is easy. In addition, you can track your important sites with bookmarks, pin tabs, and screenshot features. It offers dark mode and low light browsing features that help avoid eye strain. Though Google TV is considered to be the best streaming device, unfortunately, you cannot find Mozilla Firefox on Google TV. In this case, you can sideload the Mozilla Firefox on your Google TV and browse the web page on the bigger TV screen.
