Install Firefox in Debian 8

Lets begin by downloading Firefox.

Visit the official Firefox site and click on Download button.

This will download a file like firefox-xx.x.x.tar.bz2 where “x” is the current version of Firefox.

Lets move that file in /usr directory.

sudo mv ~/Downloads/firefox-xx.x.x.tar.bz2 /usr

Go to /usr and decompress firefox:

cd /usr

sudo tar xvf firefox-xx.x.x.tar.bz2

remove the compressed file:

sudo rm firefox-xx.x.x.tar.bz2

lets create the launcher. Press the “Super Key” (this one is located on your keyboard between “ctrl” and “alt”. In windows world is also called “Windows Key”)

then type “main menu”
