How To Install Browser On Fire TV Or Stick

install browser on fire tv or stickThis tutorial will show you how to install a browser on a Fire TV or Stick.  By installing a browser, many functions not available within this device can now be put to use.

In response to my popular guide on How To Install  VPN On Fire TV Or Stick, I received a ton of emails on how to install a browser since I use one in that video to verify my IP address after connecting to the VPN service.

One of the downfalls of the Fire TV and Stick is that you can’t install many of the applications that you would normally be able to on an Android TV Box and this is one of them.

Installing a browser will provide many benefits and one of them is the ability to download Android applications that aren’t in the Amazon Fire TV App Store.  You can simply use the browser to go directly to the Web page that hosts the download file and install directly from that location.  That is just one of many useful scenarios.

In the past, Browsers had to be installed via side-load from the Downloader app. But now, we can install both Amazon Silk Browser and Firefox directly through the Amazon App store.  However, these two browsers do not allow you to download which will prevent you from installing apks with them.

My favorite browser for the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick is the browser within Downloader due to that fact that we can install Android applications through it.

In the video below, I will show you how to Install Downloader on a Firestick or Fire TV which will allow you to side-load APK’s such as Cinema and more with ease.

Note: The same steps can be used to install FireFox on your Fire TV device which also works great on these devices. Firefox also has an included Mouse and an awesome interface that allows users the ability to surf and search the web easily.

One of the most popular uses of a Browser on Fire TV or Stick is to watch Movies and TV Shows via website. TROYPOINT has created a list of the 10 Best Movie Streaming Websites which can be accessed using the Silk or FireFox Browser on your Fire TV device.

Another option within Silk Browser is to add any of the above sites to your Favorites list. You can do so by clicking the Menu button on your Firestick remote (3 horizontal lines) and scrolling over to the Star to “Add to Favorites”. Your Bookmarks will then show up on the Browser home page.

Troy, thanks so much for those very detailed “how to”. The info I can’t seem to find anywhere is if the fire stick is a good option for streaming flash content. My Samsung Smart TV stopped playing flash videos on streaming websites 3 days ago. Some update by Samsung or Adobe must be responsible. It seems there is no chance of getting that back. So I am looking for an alternative. I only need some kind of hardware/stick/box that allows me to play flash on my Samsung TV. For the livingroom TV I’ve always used Chromecast by streaming from Chromebrowser… Read more »

I bought new 2nd generation Fire TV Stick in August 2018, and when I downloaded the silk browser on August 31, 2018 (newest version of silk browser) I keep getting pop-up ads for opera browser… how do I get rid of this issue. I tries various ad blockers and ran malware and virus tools, and I also tries to factory reset and re-downloaded. I still get the opera browser banner type ad when using the silk browser. Any Suggestions?
