Hi, secmail user.

MSM8916 is a 64-bit chip:


That could be the reason why the install error message is

"INSTALL_FAILED_NO_MATCHING_ABIS" (ABI - Application Binary Interface)

— as you might have been trying to install a package incompatible with
the CPU architecture of your device.

Can you tell me more about your device, such as make/model, and how
much RAM memory it has?

F-Droid 0.102.3 is the last version with a more practical user
interface that shows detailed package information for each available
app, including the supported architecture of each package (APK).

To install that version of F-Droid from the contemporary F-Droid app,
you'll have to ensure, that the F-Droid Archive repository in the list
of available repositories in app settings is active, and that the
package list is thereonafter updated.

Install the F-Droid 0.102.3 package compatible with your device, and
update the package once more.

As you search for and tap on IceCatMobile, then F-Droid 0.102.3 should
show all the available APKs of IceCat, their versions, and the
supported architecture of each.

The packages incompatible with your device are grayed out or not
displayed, depending on app settings in F-Droid.

At this time, the only CPU architectures shown for IceCatMobile are
armeabi-v7a (ARMv7) and x86. The processor architecture of your device
is most likely arm64-v8a.

Firefox Klar is Firefox Focus rebranded, so as to avoid confusion with
Focus Magazin in German-speaking countries.

Firefox Klar uses the built-in WebKit/Blink rendering engine, and not
the dedicated renderer of Firefox (Gecko).
