In case anyone's interested, Mozilla has finally made Firefox officially[1] available as a Flatpak via Flathub[2]. If you're keen to try it out, you can do so like this.

$ flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
$ flatpak update
$ flatpak install org.mozilla.firefox

As this is a Flatpak, configs will not conflict with your regular Firefox, as they will go to ~/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/
