There are two new applications available for Sparkers: Firefox Mozilla builds

What is Firefox Mozilla build?

It is debianized, the latest version of Mozilla Firefox build, which provides the latest binary packages don’t available via Debian stable and testing repos. So the latest versions of Firefox and Firefox ESR can be installed on Sparky stable and testing now.

1. The binary debs do not make problems with your exiting installation of ‘firefox’ or ‘firefox-esr’ packages from Debian repos. The Mozilla build debs are installed with different names then the Debian’s ones.

2. Make sure, the Mozilla build does not use your present Firefox profile, it creates a new one, so can not use your existing, saved bookmarks, passwords, etc. You can restore your settings using the Mozilla synchronization feature.

Installation Firefox Mozilla build ESR (Sparky 6 & 7 amd64/i386):
sudo apt update
sudo apt install firefox-esr-sparky

Installation Firefox Mozilla build Latest (Sparky 6 & 7 amd64/i386):
sudo apt update
sudo apt install firefox-sparky
