I installed the latest version (67.02) if firefox. In my home directory there is a folder called 'firefox' and if I open it there is an executable file called 'firefox' and if I click it the latest firefox opens. That's how I am typing this. So far so good.
However, if I open Activities and type firefox in the search field, or click on the little squares and look for the firefox icon I get something called 'Firefox Web Browser', with the firefox logo.
If I do it now when the new firefox is open, clicking that icon will lead me back to the open version of firefox. However, doing it when firefox is not open yet, this method of opening firefox will open an older version (52) of firefox that is apparently still on my computer somewhere. However, I have no idea where this old version is hiding, because searching for firefox using 'files' will only lead me to the new version.
Of course I don't want the old version anymore, but I do want to know where it is hiding. So my questions are:
- How do I find where on my computer the old version is living?
- How do I get rid of the old firefox without also destroying the new one?
- How do I tell 'activities' that the new firefox is the one it should recognize?
