FireFox for Firestick

Recommended Posts

I think they've done this because Google are disabling their YouTube app on the Firestick due to a spat between them and Amazon. 

To be honest, I can't be bothered to use the Firefox browser app to access YouTube,  but fortunately my smart tv has the YouTube app built in and it will continue working after they pull the app on the Firestick on January 1st. 

My main use of the Firestick is to access Amazon Prime music and videos, and also to use the brilliant Terrarium app (but you never heard that last bit from me!).

Talking about tv's and browsers, the best option I ever had was to connect a spare desktop pc to my tv set, together with a wireless keyboard and mouse.

It was infinitely better than any Firestick or smart tv as I could browse easily, download anything I wanted, and sit back on the sofa and play Virtual Pool 3!

Sadly, the motherboard went recently, so I removed the whole pc from behind the tv, but I'm considering a replacement as it was so useful.
