Quote:
Nala is a front-end for libapt-pkg. Specifically we interface using the python-apt api.
Especially for newer users it can be hard to understand what apt is trying to do when installing or upgrading.
We aim to solve this by not showing some redundant messages, formatting the packages better, and using color to
show specifically what will happen

Newer Firefox on Debian

Posted 10-24-2021 at 11:51 AM by craigevil (craigevil's random words of wisdom)
Updated 10-25-2021 at 11:00 AM by craigevil (added snap)

OK take a deep breath, now let it out. This post uses Ubuntu repos on RPIOS/Twister/Debian so do NOT freak out.

First, there is Ubuntuzilla, which works for i386/amd64 but not arm32/arm64. Since I am on RPIOS I am just posting the link to it.
https://sourceforge.net/p/ubuntuzill.../#installation

For those like myself that are using a Raspberry PI the following will keep Firefox current on your system.

Here are the steps: https://github.com/ryanfortner/pi-ba...ain/Firefox.md...
