Description

Debian comes installed with its own version of Firefox called IceWeasel. It is perfectly capable of browsing the web, however it doesn't always have the best plugin support. This is a simple guide for installing Firefox on Debian.

  • Temporarily gain root access:
    sudo -s
    
  • Add the Linux Mint repository to the sources list:
    echo 'deb http://packages.linuxmint.com debian import' >> /etc/apt/sources.list
    
  • Update system repositories:
    apt-get update
    
  • Now install Firefox:
    apt-get install firefox
