Warning for unexperienced Linux users: stick to the Firefox version included with your Linux distribution!Hello, I am glad to hear that your problem has been resolved.If you haven't already, please select the answer that solves the problem.
I tried updating via the "About Firefox" window (I always update like this) but apparently firefox doesn't detect the new version.
The catch is that an actual installation didn't occur.
With that, I mean that there was no desktop icon generated nor did the old firefox uninstall itself.
