How can I install Greasemonkey, Tampermonkey, or similar in Firefox Android?



  • I have Firefox 94.1.2 on a Pixel 3XL with Android 10. I'm trying to install a user-script extension like Greasemonkey Tampermonkey.

    addons.mozilla.org shows these are both available for Android: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/greasemonkey/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/tampermonkey/

    When I open the Add-on menu in Firefox, I see one add-on I have Enabled, and about 15 other "Recommended" (not of interest). I find no way to search for additional add-ons in addons.mozilla.org.

    I found https://android.stackexchange.com/questions/229969/how-can-i-use-userscripts-on-firefox-for-android that said this issue would be fixed about a year ago, but I'm still not able to install add-ons.

    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/find-and-install-add-ons-firefox-android implies that running Nightly versions of Firefox might allow more add-ons. Is there any other way to install these extensions?



  • With Firefox and Chrome both incapable, the best answer is to install yet another Browser. I chose https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kiwibrowser.browser&hl=en_US&gl=US . From the main menu, choose the Extensions page. Touch the "+(from store)" button - it will take you to chrome.google.com. Searching on Tampermonkey offers "Tampermonkey" "Tampermonkey Beta" and "Clipcopy for Tampermonkey". Choose "Tampermonkey" but do not use the Android "Get it" link - it goes to the Play Store and offers an App, not an extension. Click the link to the https://www.tampermonkey.net/ site which contains a link to "Install in Chrome". Select it and it will install in Kiwi.
