[SOLVED] Firefox ESR
« on: May 13, 2019, 01:29:00 am »
I am surfing the web with Firefox Quantum ESR 60.6.1esr (32 bits), installed with Sparky Linux 4.9 APTus.
This version has a problem with the extensions, because of an error of Mozilla.
All the distributions have delivered a new, corrected, version: Firefox ESR 60.6.2esr.
How can I upgrade Firefox in Sparky ?

Been wondering that myself  Ads.  Using chromium lately.  The fix came to all my Sparky's, all my Sparky's are 5.x-Buster. 

So I looked, the fix is in stretch-updates.  Hmm, I had not put that into my etc/apt/sources.list back when it was testing.   
Possibly there is also a Sparky linux fix for the 4.X line. 

I just added
Code: [Select]
deb stretch-updates main
into etc/apt/sources.list

and I updated in my normal fashion.  Works for me.  So if your normal updating does not work, check out /etc/apt/sources.list and add stretch-updates   (or stable-updates  both will work for now.) 
Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.

I added
Code: [Select]
deb stretch-updates maininto etc/apt/sources.list
and Firefox-esr was fixed after update/upgrade.

    firefox-esr/stable-updates 60.6.3esr-1~deb9u1 i386 [upgradable from: 60.6.1esr-1~deb9u1]
    firefox-esr-l10n-fr/stable-updates 60.6.3esr-1~deb9u1 all [upgradable from: 60.6.1esr-1~deb9u1]

Solved. Thank you very much
