    For those of you that prefer the latest firefox, it is now available for installation in the antiX repos.

    Probably. We provide a systemd-free version.

    When I start the firefox 65.01. Quantum with

    apulse firefox

    I do have sound in e. g. youtube

    apulse is preinstalled on antix 17.3.1

    I don’t have pulseaudio installed and didn’t make any changes like moving alsa.rc and so on, it works with firefox just like that.

    I got Firefox 65.0.1 just by doing a package update, but I think I may have enabled the Mozilla backports site anyway to pick them up. Either way, we’re good with both the ESR and the latest updated versions of Firefox available. 🙂

    The repository https://mozilla.debian.net/ is no longer active. Maybe you’re referring to the update of firefox-esr-60.5? But it’s the stable version of debian that esr. That ¨normal¨ was missing. Not now. Thanks anticapitalista

    Which is the best way to install FF 65.0.1–using Synaptic Package Manager or the Package Installer?
    If I install FF 65.0.1 does it over write the FF 60.5.0esr or will I end up with both versions?
    In the future, how do I upgrade FF 65.0.1 when there is a new version available?

    @greyowl – either way – I’d recommend via package installer.

    You get both firefox and firefox-esr. They shouldn’t conflict.

    Once you have the new version of firefox installed, any new versions will be picked up by apt-get update apt-get dist-upgrade/synaptic/package-installer (once I have uploaded the new debs of course).

    firefox and firefox-esr. They shouldn’t conflict.

    In advance, just in case… be sure to create a backup copy of your older version firefox profile.

    (if profile data is touched by newer version, the profile’s bookmarks|storage|containerdata|sessiondata may become unusable with earlier firefox versions)
