Ubuntu updating firefox
This how-to supposes that the downloaded file is saved in the “Downloads” directory located in your home directory. In case you want to learn more on these extensions: tar, bzip2.
→ Avoid this ppa unless you know exactly what you’re doing!
Please share your experience with Open Suse and Fedora in the comments.
Problem: it is possible to run different Firefox versions with the same profile (profiles are compatible through major versions).
Using this ppa will not only install the latest Firefox 59 daily build, once called “minefield” – updated daily!
It will also update your current Firefox and Thunderbird to test versions.Ubuntu automatically updates its repositories to the newest stable Firefox version a few days after the official release (as does Linux Mint).
