This needs some research.

There are several markets other than Google Play that provide proprietary apps in case you need them.
I wouldn't call them 3rd party because they are as official to Android Open Source Project as Google Play is.

2. Ask vendors, and Open Source projects to provide APK directly,
bypassing Google Play. I'm sure FireFox are willing to do that.

Besides installing Firefox through F-Droid, Mozilla is providing a direct download apk link for Aurora

Effectively, for best experience having a Google Play device is a
MUST. (esp if you are not Richard Stallman, and are using some
proprietary software...)
I haven't installed Google Play to my phone (or any other Google app) and I can't say I miss much.
