Nightly is working really good in my Android Phone. Now I would like to install Nightly in my LinuxMint Desktop. I found a page at https://www.linuxcapable.com/how-to-install-firefox-next-beta-or-firefox-quantum-nightly-on-linux-mint/ But cannot install with all those commands. So what is the best way to install Nightly on my LInuxMint? Without all the commands and things I don't understand. I am 82 years old and cannot always do such. Thanks for your help.

I don't know Linux, but you might be better off using the program on the Mozilla servers. Download Firefox For All languages And Systems {web link}

Use the tarbal and extract into its own Firefox folder. Then make sure you use its own Profile with it as it should not be shared with other builds on different channels.

Also the Firefox folder should have read/write permissions for the user to get updates. A easy way is to have the Firefox folder in Home. The Nightly channel can get checkins twice a day so it updates each day.

If you do not want to be a tester then perhaps you should stick with the Release or Beta channel builds at most. A version on Beta channel can get say 10-14+ builds.

I install Firefox by using a file manager with two panels. In most you can easily open an archive with the cursor right key just like you navigate to a sub folder. You can select all the files in the 'firefox' folder and copy them to the folder where you want to install Firefox (home directory for easy access or usr/local or /opt with root permission).
