You can get the latest Firefox ESR (24.4.0) here.
Just make sure you get the correct one, 32 or 64 bit. Download it and unpack it (it's one folder) in the same place you downloaded it to.
In a separate file manager window navigate to /opt and open it as Root. Rename the firefox folder there, then copy the unpacked firefox folder and paste it into /opt.
To prevent Firefox from being updated enter the following in a terminal: sudo apt-mark hold firefox
If ever want to undo the hold command use: sudo apt-mark unhold firefox
Ah, so the replacement process is 100% manual?
Are there reasons why you suggest renaming the existing directory rather than remove with the package manager?
Is that the same as using Lock in Synaptic?
# first of all, add this repo into your repo list
deb http://packages.solydxk.com/testing/ solydxk main upstream import kdenext
#after that, in your terminal run
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firefox-esr
