Mozilla releases a new version of Firefox every six weeks.You can check the Rapid Release calendar since the future release date are available.The firefox on my ubuntu requires me to update Flash plugin and follow the link I get to the page which ask me to download the latest Firefox package. It is the new version, but it is in an independent folder and if I want to use it, I need to open the folder and click on the Firefox executable.How can I replace the old version of firefox on my ubuntu with the newly-downloaded? btw, yes it it a symbolic link to /usr/lib/firefox/if you replace it now, it will be overwritten when firefox automatically updates with the rest of your system so that's probably not such a good idea if you would like to use your downloaded version instead First of all, you may run into a false message from a webpage asking you to update flash when running linux because, although linux flash still receives security updates from adobe, our flashplayer is stuck on version 11 or 12 point something whereas all apple and windows users are using version 18 or 19.
Restart Firefox by clicking Restart to Update to begin using the new version.
This fake update disappeared for a few days for me, but today it is back again. I have done complete scans with Norton, Malware Bytes and Microsoft Security Scanner and none have found anything. I know if you clear your cookies and catche, it stops for a little bit, but eventually comes back.
Every time I encounter this, I exit from Firefox and restart Firefox. so there is something that triggers it somehow, prob some ad.
Other things to mention with this update-pack: As usual you find the regular upstream packages, such as eric, haskell and python.
Please give us feedback and report any issues you may see with this update.
