Switch to undisturbed Firefox from Ubuntu repository

Post by rotozeev » Fri Jan 05, 2018 9:38 am

I can not use embed in LM firefox due to the impossibility of Google search using. Some weeks I used Firefox nightly, but firefox not really installed into the system in this case, I run it from the folder. So, can I reject changed by LM team firefox and use unchanged one from another repository? How can I do this?

Thanks.

You can set Google as default search engine like this:

If you still want the Ubuntu version of Firefox, this is how:
