How do I update the Firefox package shipped with Netrunner 17.01? I have noticed that it is Firefox version 50.1.0 and compiled by Cannonical for Ubuntu. I updated the apt repositories, some updates came, but not for Firefox which should be in 53+ versions. Should I download deb file from other sources? Is it safe?
You can get a newer Firefox version from the stretch-backports dist of the plasmazilla repo.
go and get the latest version at (for rolling netrunner/archlinux) https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/firefox-always-nightly which is firefox-nightly now 59… easy peasy.install via makepkg si after extraction or you can use (I dont) yaourt…
