I downloaded Firefox on my Chromebook using the instructions found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos However, I have not been able to update it since. It says updates are disabled in Firefox itself, and I have not been able to fine what files I need to update via Terminal to get the most current version. (I have been able to update other files through Terminal). Can someone please point me in the direction of how to update Firefox if installed in the manner described in the link?

Thank you for the reply but I didn't end up needing to use the file download. Turns out, I apparently just needed to run the command: flatpak update org.mozilla.firefox User error, I was just using the wrong command. Lesson learned.
