I'm new to working with Ubuntu and I've followed the instruction given here:


to install "Firefox developer edition". Accordingly, I first unpacked the tar.bz2 directory to my private folder and afterwards renamed it to "Firefox_Developer_Edition".

Now I want to remove/uninstall it.

Problem is, that I don't know how. There is no "readme file" or something alike.

I've looked around and tried to remove the program via the command line, trying a variety of commands I found here and elsewhere, but not one of them worked. Either Ubuntu told me that the command doesn't exist or that Firefox isn't installed on my machine.

I was wondering if the solution to my problem might be to simply delete the folder named "Firefox_Developer_Edition"?

I would really appreciate your help in this matter.

Many thanks in advance and kind regards

    Just delete the Firefox_Developer_Edition in your home folder... but FIRST, do dpkg -l firefox | grep ii and make sure that the standard Firefox is still there. – heynnema May 27 at 17:29
  • Please post sudo apt --installed list | grep -i firefox output. – FedonKadifeli May 27 at 17:42
