how can remove mozilla firefox?


Hi all ,
i tried to update firefox 24 to firefox 35. Found a tutorial how to install it and did
#chown -R root:root /tmp/firefox && mv /tmp/firefox /opt/firefox-latest
#ln -s /opt/firefox-latest/firefox /usr/local/bin/firefox-latest
and now run it with firefox-latest.
I had actually the both versions of firefox and with pkgtool tried to remove firefox 35 but it cant, so i uninstalled firefox 24. Now i have troubles with flashplayer. how can remove firefox 35 ?

What OS?
Have you updated flash? Did you create a link to it in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins?

OS is slackware 14.1 64bit. I put the new one liblashplayer.so in user/lib64/mozilla/plugins in user/lib/ there is no mozilla dir. So i can just delete mozilla 35 from opt, but cannot remove the link i made.

Hi:

Generally I download Ruario's script put it in a file and make it executable or use bash to run it.
https://gist.github.com/ruario/9672798

Than the pkg is in the /tmp file and has a tgz or txz ending.
I than use upgradepkg to install the new ff.

I had a hard time with libflashplayer as well.
This might help.
