I've downloaded the recent version of Firefox for Linux. However, it's very cumbersome to install Firefox if the repository doesn't support the updated version. Unlike Opera, and Chrome; Firefox doesn't contain .deb or .rpm file. However, on Linux Mint, and on Ubuntu, it's very easy to update Firefox. On Kali Linux however, I have the 46.6ish version. I wanted to update it for a long time. But whenever I download the bz2 file, I can open the Firefox directly from the Firefox file(after extracting the file). I can use the terminal to open Firefox. For example: going to the extracted file and type: firefox/firefox, or cd firefox -> ./firefox. Now, the problem is I have to go to my storage or open the terminal all the time to open Firefox. Else I've to use the shabby Firefox which is very inconvenient. How to install Firefox on Kali Linux?
