Firefox Release on Raspberry Pi

A clean way to install the Firefox release (currently version 47) on Q4OS/Raspbian distribution. The package is specifically compiled and optimized for Raspbian distribution, not Ubuntu nor Debian. It should run under Q4OS and Raspbian Jessie on all Raspberry Pi boards, including Raspberry Pi-1.

Simply add the 'qextrepo' repository from the Q4OS site and install "firefox" package. Follow terminal commands:

echo 'deb http://q4os.org/qextrepo q4os-rpi-firefox-cn main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/qextrepo.list
wget -nv -O- http://q4os.org/qextrepo/q4a-q4os.gpg.pub | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firefox

If you want to install German language pack, install "firefox-l10n-de" package. Of course, you can use any gui package manager too. Enjoy  smile

Re: Firefox Release on Raspberry Pi

Thank you so much! This worked great. I'm working on a kiosk and there are some websites that require newer versions of Firefox so this allows me to satisfy those requirements. Awesomeness!

Re: Firefox Release on Raspberry Pi

We would recommend to replace the 'q4os-extra' repository, as it has been superseded by 'qextrepo' repository, please see instructions above. They have been updated accordingly.

Big fan of FF but it is still crashing on Rpi 3 w/Jessie.
