comment Cannot install Firefox in Semplice Linux
Sorry for my vague language. I mean the common way of getting Firefox in the Debian community. My question is about Firefox and I want an answer on that. I do use Iceweasel, and other Mozilla based browsers like Seamonkey (now even PaleMoon, based on FF, but that does not follow the latest design changes in FF, is available for Linux. More on this larger issue, my older question here).

@Braiam - should I understand that in Debian the proper way to install Firefox is to install Iceweasel? -

comment Cannot install Firefox in Semplice Linux
What is the proper way to install Firefox in a such Debian-based Linux? -- On getting 404 errors and the link in your comment: that solution is on how to remove such sources, while your answer tells me how to add them, which I did. Am I wrong?

comment Cannot install Firefox in Semplice Linux
@Braiam - well, I prefer to have Firefox too, although I have nothing against Iceweasel. What shouldn't I use an opensource crossplatform browser that I always used in Linux, Windows and Mac? But I always used Ubuntu based linuxes and what I know about Linux is limited to Ubuntu is a sense (and Ubuntu is based on Debian, I thought, so things should not be that different etc). I was not able to try non-Ubuntu Linuxes on my laptops but in a virtual machine I want to. -- To reformulate my question: what is the proper way to install Firefox in Debian?

@Braiam - you mean just download and run ("portable") - as indicated in my workaround answer? I though that adding the PPA when it is not there already like in Ubuntu etc is the proper way to do it...

still does not work. does that mean that the condition "similar enough to Debian sid" is not fulfilled?
