Recommended OS
Installing Chromium from Raspbian also works fine. In general it seems that the Raspbian repositories can be used in place on Tinker OS without problems. The system will even start to call itself Raspbian when you do 'apt update && apt dist-upgrade'. The trick that Raspbian uses to keep things working is by limiting the version however. Firefox is still on the previous ESR and Chromium is on 65.

Armbian Bionic seems to be more polished. Problems that I had in Tinker OS like VLC skipping, not all audio working properly in Firefox do not seem to be in Armbian Bionic.

That firefox version is pretty old. It might be likely 52, I suppose.
Anyway nice to see a firefox working on TB.
