I am using Ubuntu 14.04. After downloading
firefox-50.0.2.tar.bz2, I have unpacked it and then installed. When I click on Firefox on the Dash it opens the old version. The new version works through downloaded folder. How to get rid of the old version?
Other question: New Firefox is in the
/Downloads folder. To which folder should I copy it, to keep it with other programs?
I have just uninstalled old version :)
Then I have used
whereis firefox command and popped out:
/etc/firefox /usr/lib/firefox. So I followed these instructions and I found folder with previous Firefox. It still contained a few files. I tried to cut and paste Firefox folder from my
/Downloads folder but It is not working. How should I copy those new Firefox files so that it will appear in the Dash?
Thank you for all your replies. For sure I will study now more about terminal and commands. I tried to avoid it on the beginning before studying it well, because last time I have just erased my other OS by using terminal...
Before I checked this forum I made a small thing. I had accessed
/etcfolder as an administrator (right click>access as a administrator) and then I have just paste new Firefox folder replacing old one. Can it stay there or should I move it to
I had copied
Firefox folder to
/opt/ and later I opened the terminal. There I run
sudo apt-get install --reinstall firefox. Firefox 50.0.2 is working good now and I can run it through the Dash. Reinstallation fixed also Firefox's launchpad icon that was missing before.
