I'm trying to install an older version of firefox. My Selenium script requires that the system be able to open firefox by issuing the command
firefox from anywhere.
I created a symlink from the download directory into /usr/bin like so:
sudo ln -s ~/tools/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
Now whenever I type
firefox I get this message:
The program 'firefox' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install firefox
Why does apt-get try to find it instead of just calling it from /usr/bin?
