I installed Firefox Nightly Developer Edition so I could contribute to some of their open source projects.

I'd like to change back to the original. I've uninstalled Firefox using the following commands:

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge


ppa-purge ppa:mozillateam/firefox-next


sudo apt-get autoremove


sudo apt-get install firefox

But every time I go to install Firefox, either via the terminal or the Ubuntu Software Center, it installs the Developer Edition.

Does anyone know how to install the traditional Firefox? In a perfect world, I'd like to have both so I could still contribute and not need to worry about the bugs when I'm at work.

  • add the output apt-cache policy firefox – JoKeR Jul 5 '15 at 23:23
  • Did you use sudo in the purge like so sudo ppa-purge ppa:mozillateam/firefox-next – chj1axr0 Jul 6 '15 at 0:33

I don't know how I missed it, but this article had what I needed,

If you don't want to click, here is the short answer to properly uninstall:

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge


ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/firefox-aurora
