Q4OS Firefox now uses official Mozilla repositories

If you have installed Firefox from Q4OS software center, you may noticed it switched to the official Mozilla Apt repositories. Mozilla repositories are regular Apt repository, so it's a really clean and proper way to install and uninstall software in Q4OS. Firefox stable release will now be updated in line with the official releases.

You can even make use of a few Mozilla testing builds to install and use testing versions of Firefox alongside the stable release. If you want so, just run in terminal:
$ sudo apt install firefox-beta
or
$ sudo apt install firefox-devedition
or
$ sudo apt install firefox-nightly

Note: Don't remove Q4OS Firefox repository, it keeps important packages to optimize Firefox just for Q4OS.

Thank you for this note! I just wanted to remove Q4OS Firefox repository, because I thought, that it is no longer necessary.


Before asking for help please read this topic: https://www.q4os.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=3502   If you have problems with WiFi network, try to install the Network Manager using Q4OS Software Centre.

Q4OS would take care about it, if needed.
