I prefer Chrome to Firefox, and I removed Firefox on Ubuntu 12.04. But when I upgraded to 12.10, Firefox got installed again!

What should I do to prevent installing Firefox on upgrading the system?

I would guess, it's easier to just upgrade with Firefox and remove it afterwards. –  David Foerster Oct 19 '13 at 2:12
I'm not sure there's anything you can do because. Just do your upgrade, then install Chrome, then remove Firefox as suggested above. –  user25656 Oct 19 '13 at 2:21
Thanks any way. That's what I did! –  Awen Oct 20 '13 at 13:36
