Firefox Quantum Browser on Linux

Updated 10-Feb-2021

Firefox is currently the best non-Google option for browsing, in terms of a fairly well-supported plugin/extension/add-on environment. It isn't perfect, and is a bit ugly at times, but is definitely faster/more stable than Chrome. If one values privacy, then Google products are simply not an option, though Firefox/Mozilla is not perfect by any means.

Installing Firefox on Linux

Strangely, as of November, 2018 the browser cannot update itself for Linux. Hence: - Download the latest Firefox Quantum Build - Uncompress the file into ~/Downloads - sudo rm -rf /opt/firefox - sudo mv ~/Downloads/firefox /opt/firefox - Launch Firefox and > History > Restore Previous Session
