Hello Zorin people,
I have been running the default firefox (ff) 82 on zorin 15.3 since October 2020. I would like to update ff to the latest 85. However it does not automatically do this and under preferences in ff there is not option to allow auto updates. I am running as administrator, or at least I think I am as I am the only user created during the Zorin install.
I have installed ff from the zorin store which gives me the latest v85, that gives me a bit more info in that it tells me I do not have admin privileges to update it and that option is greyed out.
I have also installed ff 85 by downloading the tar from mozilla. That instance of ff does allow for auto updates.
All three work.
In synaptic, v82 can only be marked for removal. It seems to be tied to the ubuntu base os.
I would like to update the v82 instance to the latest as it has bookmarks and auto login cookies. If it werent for this (in)convenience I can easily delete and go with the manual install.
This behaviour is strange as I have also installed Zorin on a laptop and it seems to auto update the default ff. I cannot tell what is the difference between the laptop and this desktop version that is giving me problems.
Anyone have any ideas on what is wrong or how can i update the default ff version?
