You are just using ln the wrong way around: ln is ln <source> <target>. So you could do: ORIGINAL="$(which firefox)" sudo mv "$ORIGINAL" "${ORIGINAL}.orig" sudo ln -s "$HOME/Desktop/firefox/firefox" "$ORIGINAL" This will backup the current firefox binary from your path and create a symlink to your manually installed version.

Easiest way apt-get install firefox this will update to new one or which firefox this will give you path of firefox then replace the same sudo ln -fs $HOME/Desktop/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox For Ex. which firefox /usr/bin/firefox sudo ln -fs $HOME/Desktop/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox

There are two ways to fix this: You can alter your $PATH variable so that the directory where the new firefox version lives is checked before any other directory, by running the command export PATH=$HOME/Desktop/firefox:$PATH And if you add that same command to your .bashrc, all your future sessions will have the new PATH too.

Why you downloaded the version, you apparently did not install it in one of the directories in the PATH variable.

I ran into this too, and found the answer in mozilla's bugzilla. In short, it happened because the plugin was updated while Firefox was running, and the pluginreg.dat got corrupted. So: exit firefox rm ~/.mozilla/firefox/*/pluginreg.dat start firefox again and you'll be all set. (The file will be regenerated.) Of course, you'll need to make sure that ...

I use the IP Address and Domain Information addon. It offers you a small icon in the toolbar, and offers all sorts of information about domain/ip/dns. When you click on it, the My IP tab shows your IP and location and some other information like the owning provider, whether it's on any spam/blacklists and even a map of the approximate location. Works great ...
