[Solved] Firefox (from official website)

Postby pawRoot » 2018-01-31 10:29

Hi

I am installing Firefox from official website, and i am following this guide: https://wiki.debian.org/Firefox,
and now 2 questions.

1.

Code: Select all
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Firefox ''Your version''
Comment=Web Browser
GenericName=Web Browser
X-GNOME-FullName=Firefox ''Your version'' Web Browser
Exec=/path/to/firefox/firefox %u
Terminal=false
X-MultipleArgs=false
Type=Application
Icon=/path/to/firefox/icon
Categories=Network;WebBrowser;
MimeType=text/html;text/xml;application/xhtml+xml;application/xml;application/vnd.mozilla.xul+xml;application/rss+xml;application/rdf+xml;image/gif;image/jpeg;image/png;x-scheme-handler/http;x-scheme-handler/https;
StartupWMClass=Firefox
StartupNotify=true


^ here i would like to set path to icon, but i can't find any icon inside firefox folder i downloaded, do i have to use custom one (downloaded from internet), or am i missing something ?

2. Anyone know how to download latest Linux Firefox build from Mozilla website using for example wget ? I want to make shell script which configures Firefox automatically.

From the extracted firefox folder = firefox/browser/icons/mozicon128.png

https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla. ... .1.tar.bz2

AFAIK there is no "universal url" which can download the latest version. You can change the numbering around for different versions.

Try these wget commands in the README on the Mozilla ftp server:

https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/rel ... README.txt
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: GIMP 2.10.2, Pale Moon 27.9.3, wine-staging 3.10, QuiteRSS 0.18.11, Linux kernel 4.17, Krita 4.0.4
