Update Firefox on Ubuntu

There is an easy way to update Firefox and there is a little bit more complex way to do it. We'll cover both of them.

Easy way to update Firefox

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firefox

And voila! You are done. Easy, wasn't it? If it wasn't it and it gave you an error that looks like:

firefox is already the newest version

Then you have to get to slightly different approach.

Second way to do it

Add following line to your sources list:

deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian sid main 

by opening sources.list

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Add to it and save.

Then run commands from above:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firefox

And there it is. New fresh Firefox installed.
