apt-get dist-upgrade

apt-get upgrade wont install new stuff, just update existing stuff and a new version of firefox is 'new' ... so requires dist-upgrade ... which does cater for installing new/additional stuff.

No offense but I'm not sure I'd recommend this. Packages are generally held for a reason and if OP isn't paying attention dist-upgrade could cause pretty significant breakage.

If OP is running Stable chances are there are some non-Debian repos enabled; if he's running Testing or Unstable he should probably wait until the held packages are made available.
we see things not as they are, but as we are.

Good point wizard10000. I run oldstable, main repositories only (no contrib nor nonfree) i.e. /etc/apt/sources.list content of ...

For educational purposes only, what is the reason to track Jessie if you're running Stretch?
