I am using Linux Mint 6.0.3.1 , and my Mozilla Firefox version is 77.0.1 . My Firefox will not update, neither automatically nor when prompted. When I go to all the pages for downloading and installing the newest Firefox, I am always able to download a package, which appears as a folder labeled " firefox-89.0.2.tar.bz2 " but then I cannot install it, it just appears as a folder full of files that will not run. I have tried following the command lines in the terminal that these pages claim will make the new version run, but I always just get a response like "no such command" or "no file exists." Shouldn't there be some relatively simple and reliable path to just get firefox 89 onto my computer?

You can copy the files in the tar.bz2 archive to a firefox folder in your home directory.

See "Install outside of a package manager".

Did you unpack the tar.bz2 to a folder in your home directory ?

Did you try to launch Firefox via a terminal window to see whether messages are shown that give a clue ?

When I download the program, I get a folder of files, named "firefox-89.0.2.tar.bz2" When I open it, it's a lot of files, nothing runs. How would I "unpack" it? Thanks!
