I use Mozilla Firefox and LibreOffice on several different platforms (Windows 10, Android,etc) and I love them both.
I recently installed Linux Mint and Firefox and LibreOffice of course came with it (YA!!). But the version number supplied by the Software Manager is far older than the one I use on all my other platforms
- Windows: Firefox 42.0
- Linux Mint: Firefox 24.0
I have also noticed this version number problem with LibreOffice.
Because of this I suspect the "sync" operation in Firefox fails to sync things between the Windows platform and Linux.
I know the documentation seems to advise that all software be managed through the software manager.
Is there a fix to sync failure? Should I go to their respective websites and get the latest version or just wait for the package manager to do it one day?
