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.

Starting on April 30th, 2021, Mozilla will no longer support Firefox on the Fire TV or its Echo Show.

Alexa Routines have been around for years, but they’ve been getting some nice upgrades in recent months. While they can already integrate a whole bunch of supported smart home devices from various brands, Amazon’s own Fire TV dongles have surprisingly been missing from the equation.
