Top critical review
Needs work. A lot of it.
January 9, 2018
Like many, I felt adding a browser to FireTV would be a HUGE advantage: no longer confined to whatever offerings from Amazon or my apps, I would now be free to surf the web to any place I want. And while that's sort of true, the reality is this is more torture than gift.
I assume eventually Firefox will fix the multiple problems the current version (as of Jan 8, 2018) which include:
• The home page has 10 links (YouTube, Google, IMDB, etc.) There is no means to delete any of those or add one you prefer. (So much for freedom.) Do we really need a home-page link to the Hollywood Reporter...??
• An inability to bookmark anything.
• The Interface is sheer torture with a FireTV stick. Especially so for a long link. You can speak an address in for simple things (like Yahoo news, which will take you to a search page and you can find a link to get where you want to go) but a specific address for, say, a radio station's online player must be done one painful letter at a time. xyzradio.com:8000/CALL-live can't be spoken in because it comes out "x y z radio dot com colon 8,000 forward slash c a l l hyphen live". That might be somewhat useful if it let you let you navigate to the search box and then arrow over to delete the spaces or correct errors but it only lets you delete from the end.
• After typing in that long address, you'll have to do it each and every time. See above, "An inability to bookmark anything."
• There is no history either. After finally getting to where you want go, you'll have to start all over once you leave the app.
