Today we learn how to install Firefox developer Edition in Ubuntu.
First Step for that is to download Firefox Developer Edition Latest Tar Source File From Here.
Than open terminal Ctrl+Alt+T and follow the command listed below
Go to the folder/directory where source is downloaded
Un-tar (extract) file , then don’t forget to delete tar file
sudo tar xjf firefox-71.0b12.tar.bz2 , You can do it manually by right clicking on tar file than extract.
sudo rm -rf firefox-71.0b12.tar.bz2 (Use For Delete)
Move the folder to it’s final destination in
/usr/local/ (It is good practice to install in
/usr/local/ why ?)
sudo mv -r firefox-71.0b12/firefox /opt/firefox_dev OR
sudo mv -r firefox-71.0b12 /usr/local/firefox_dev (For Convenience I change the folder name to firefox_dev )
Create the following file
~/.local/share/applications/firefox_dev.desktop to make shortcut in launcher and this will be distinct from regular firefox which comes by default in Ubuntu
sudo nano ~/.local/share/applications/firefox_dev.desktop
