Following one or two updates I have now Mozilla Firefox version 25.0.1 installed on Ubuntu, which works fine.

Today I noticed that the Ubuntu Update Manager is suggesting me to install a strange "Safe and Easy Web Browser from Mozilla firefox" (30.6 Mb) update, along with a transitional package, and English, Hungarian language packs, which is strange, because I have already both English and Hungarian language packs for Firefox 25.0.1 installed.

As I know Firefox 25.0.1 is the currently latest version, and Firefox updates comes always with a new identifying sub-number (not named), without language packs.

Has anyone received such a huge update with that name? What is this? A new, second browser from Firefox, a security update (too large for that, and why sent with language packs), or was it sent by mistake? Do I need it at all?

  • Firefox 26 is the latest version.
