Firefox is the default net browser in some Linux distributions and ubuntu is certainly one of them. firefox comes preinstalled in Ubuntu until you are the usage of the ubuntu-minimal version.
In this tutorial, I am going to reveal to you how to deploy the present-day model of firefox on ubuntu or some other Linux distribution.
Installing Firefox on Ubuntu and other Linux [The Official Method]
As I said before, Firefox is out there in most of the Linux distributions out there. it's also pre-installed in most of them. If that’s not the case, you ought to stick with the official package manager provided by your distribution for installing Firefox.
That’s the simplest and best method. it'll be updated automatically to newer versions with system updates.
Open the software center and look for Firefox. you ought to see it there and just click on the install button.
If you favor the instruction , open a terminal and use the subsequent command in Debian, Ubuntu, and other distributions supported Ubuntu and Debian like Linux Mint, elementary OS, etc.
Similarly, Fedora users can use dnf command, SUSE users can zypper and other package managers provided by the distribution.
Once installed, just search for it within the menu and begin it from there.
sudo apt install firefox
Installing latest Firefox on Linux from its website
Download it from the official website:
tar xjf firefox-*
Now pass the extracted firefox quantum listing to /opt
sudo rm -r /opt/firefox
sudo mv ~/Downloads/firefox /opt/firefox
And that’s it. you’ll see that when you begin firefox now, it uses the new quantum version.
sudo ln -s /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
