which debian version? stable?
i think there's a reason why it's not in the repositories.
just run the version you can install with apt-get.
like this:
Code:
sudo su
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get install firefox-esr
and post output if you need help. in code tags.
you have been here long enough to know that.

^ yes, that will give you the latest version supported by whichever debian version you're using.
a wise choice.
