    Hi algori,
    assuming you are new to Linux debian based, find the package name which is really easy in using the tool synaptic,
    depending on your antiX version you might wish to install it. You can remove firefox from there.

    This way you and others can help themselves, there are plenty of other ways for more advanced users, i propagate this
    one as it is easy to understand and use, also gives some insight in to the wealth of packages available for antiX.

    From: https://antixlinux.com/antix-19-4-available/
    * firefox-esr (78.10.0esr)

    Meaning what is installed isn’t firefox, but firefox-esr
    sudo apt purge firefox-esr

    For those of you who want to add a Firefox repository on a Debian-based system like antiX, the reference https://mozilla.debian.net/ provides the information to do so.

    For example, if you set the I am running Debian [Testing] and I want to install [Firefox] version [Release],

    the lines below state:

    You need to add the following entry in /etc/apt/sources.list or a new file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/:

    deb http://http.debian.net/debian unstable main

    You can install it with the following commands:

    $ apt-get update
    $ apt-get install -t unstable firefox

    We also have the Package Installer, which allows you to install many different software packages. There are quite a few Web browsers available, including both Firefox and Firefox-ESR.

    If you know the package name you want to remove, as previously discussed – sudo apt purge
    followed by the name of the package will delete the software and completely purge any associated files.
