Firefox is ending support for Amazon Fire TV and Echo Show devices

Firefox is ending support for Amazon Fire TV and Echo Show devices

Firefox came to Fire TV devices way back at the tail-end of 2017, available alongside Amazon's own Silk browser. Although there's plenty of reasons to access the web on a TV, it really only showed up for one reason.

Of course, an official YouTube app has been back on Fire TV since 2019, significantly reducing the need for a third-party web browser. Starting on April 30th, 2021, Mozilla will no longer support Firefox on the Fire TV or its Echo Show.

Amazon's ancient 1080p Fire TV Stick might finally get an upgrade

Amazon's 4K Fire TV stick is a decent option for a self-contained 4K media streaming device, but the company's cheapest 1080p model is... not good. It was underpowered and slow when it was released, and it hasn't seen a hardware upgrade in four years (not counting when Amazon started bundling a voice remote).
