Easily installing Firefox, SeaMonkey and Thunderbird on Debian

Bookmark and Share

There are plenty of different ways to install Firefox on Linux – which you should do, since Iceweasel or other standard-browsers keep crashing or just don’t have the same functionality. However, the easiest way is to just run this in terminal:

apt-get remove iceweasel
echo -e "\ndeb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list > /dev/null
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com C1289A29
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build
sudo apt-get install thunderbird-mozilla-build
sudo apt-get install seamonkey-mozilla-build
apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build

Check the Ubuntuzilla project for a how-to of installing Thunderbird, Seamonkey, etc.
