Please Help!! Mozilla Firefox for Linux


In MF28, are the versions for Windows and Linux the same? I need a list of Firefox Linux features and all I can find is Windows.

Using rpm or yum, how do I install FF in Linux 64 using the command line? What dependencies will be used?

there is NO operating system called "linux 64"
there are 32 bit and 64 bit Operating systems ( Just like there are 32 bit and 64 bit Microsoft Windows Operating systems)

"yum" means you are using one of the redhat based Operating systems
Fedora 20
RHEL 6.5
CentOS 6.5
SL 6.5

firefox is firefox
on a Linux OS
a Apple Mac
or on Windows 7 or 8

it is ALREADY INSTALLED !!!!
firefox or the bsd version of it "iceweasel"
IS installed BY DEFAULT

you already have it installed

What distro/version are you using?

This might help if you are using Fedora, CentOS, or RHEL: http://www.if-not-true-then-false.co...-red-hat-rhel/

You can check Firefox versions here: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/releases/ As far as I can tell, the Windows and Linux versions are consistent.
