Using LM 19 and the software manager to update firefox.
I uninstalled firefox using the software manager, but when I tried installing it again, I kept getting unable to download package message. All other packages downloaded without problems. Anyone know why, please.

See if this works, open a terminal & run these:

Code: Select all

 sudo apt-get update 

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install firefox

When something like that happens you can change the download mirror, the one you selected is likely having problems that day. I don't select the nearest mirror, I just use the main Mint mirror.
