How to Manually Upgrade Firefox in Linux

This is for linux users only. When it comes to upgrading firefox from lower version to upper version, I could not find the standard way to do it. This is what I did.

This is for linux users only.

1. Go to firefox site to see the latest updates.

2. Download the latest firefox tar.

3. Untar and decompress the file:

tar xvfz firefox.xx.tar.gz

4. You will see a firefox directory in it. On your terminal type:

whereis firefox

and it should return /usr/bin/firefox and /usr/lib/firefox.

5. Go to /usr/lib and find firefox directory there. Replace this firefox directory with the firefox installation you downloaded.

6. Restart firefox.
