Newer Firefox on Debian

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

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...

Difficulty resetting the default browser in Debian/Xfce

Posted 03-21-2020 at 01:48 PM by flshope

This blog entry refers to Debian 10.3 and Xfce 4.12 on a desktop machine.

On a whim, I decided to reset my default browser from Chromium (Version 80.0.3987.132) to Firefox (version 68.6.0esr). Shortly thereafter, I decided to go back to Chromium and reset the default at Xfce menu item
