(!!!terminal commands are put between ‘’)
- go to Directory Listing: /pub/firefox/releases/62.0/linux-i686/ and pick up your language version of Firefox.
- enter the language directory of your choice , right click on firefox-62.0.tar.bz2 file and copy the link
- open your terminal (Ctrl-Alt-t)
sudo wgetand paste (Ctrl-Shift-v or Shift-Ins) the link (remember about the space after
sudo tar xf firefox-62.0.tar.bz2
sudo nano /usr/share/applications/firefox-quantum.desktopand paste the text below

Ctrl-Shift-x to exit
It’s almost ready…
The Firefox Quantum is available. You can check in your apps if it’s so.
Now, there are some issues with sound. I solved the problem by installing ‘pulseaudio’
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio
There is one more thing to do.
open audacious player and in File/Preferences/OutputSettings Change ALSA to PulseAudio
now, try to open a music file in Audacoius to check wether it works.
open Firefox Quantum go to Netflix / Amazon Prime Video … Et voilà
!!!Of course remember about enabling DRM!!!
If there are any issues, just let me know.
Long live Elive !!
