Guess again n00b :mrgreen:

You are currently running Debian sid, try reinstalling with Debian stable instead, you may find that works better ;)

Congratulations! You are running FrankenDebian (in your repo slist, you have Debian Stretch, Debian Sid and Ubuntu PPA)...

Clean reinstall may be helpful...

Probably because you have firefox from some Ubuntu PPA installed. Ubuntu is not debian, and installing Ubuntu packages was bound to go horribly wrong at some point. This firefox-next PPA sounds like the latest shiny-new-shit beta builds, which are almost certainly incompatible with Debian.
Who knows what other ticking timebombs are lurking in this unholy mess... Seriously, don't add stuff to sources.list unless you know exactly what you're doing.

What "downgrade"? Downgrade of Firefox packages? Downgrade to Stretch? How? Simply removing the repo entries will not do anything.
If you have ninja-grade apt-foo you might fix this install, otherwise... Reinstall time :twisted:.

@bmarnt - i am genuinely curious why you chose to add a firefox beta repo (led alone one specifically for ubuntu) to debian?
debian has firefox esr out of the box, which is the most stable branch of firefox. it also still runs the "legacy" extensions, whereas the cutting edge versions of firefox are webextensions only.

what's wrong with esr?
