    Good evening,
    I tried to update Firefox by downloading a newer version, but it didn’t work anymore !

    I would like to know the way to do that update !

    firefox-esr (default) is now version 60 and is a simple apt-get dist-upgrade

    When you say it

    didn’t work anymore !

    can you be more specific.
    What did you do?
    Type firefox in a terminal, any messages?
    What happens (exactly)?

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    Perhaps you tried installing from a downloaded file from the website?

    The correct way to upgrade/update software in antiX is to use the repositories. Running the apt-get routine as anticapitalista suggests will upgrade your Firefox program to the latest version in the repositories. If that version is not new enough for you please ask the developers for help in temporarily enabling a repository that may have a newer version. Then disable the non-standard repository after the install of Firefox is done.

    I have Beta Cacerès in french (thanks to translators) but the word “dépôt” ( repo ) is unknown in the Menu……
