Refresh your software list, please. The screenshot suggests that your locally cached list of available software is not up-to-date.
Click on the [Reload] button in Synaptic. - Upper left hand corner of the Synaptic application window.

Note:
By now the Ubuntu software repos offer Firefox 75.0. So you want Firefox 75.0. But the steps are as explained and illustrated in my post linked to above.

Thanks Karl

You need to take that up with google.
Coming to a thread near you: Lots of bragging about my AMD 5950X. Currently delayed due to high demand.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

many years ago, I had a favorite email account with google.
alas, I forgot to put the password a place it could be accessed in the 'never happens' event that the PC that is in use, decides to leave this earth.....

well, that was an HP laptop and it up and flew away to places where the big hammer in the sky resides....
I had a keyboard, and a screen, but no activity at all......
new laptop arrives, and I try to get back into my google email account, but I had forgotten what secret backup email account and password was..... sigh! they won't help you poor soul.

Fires, the issue I am seeing may be related to your problem. Since upgrading to Firefox 75.0 I see this when already logged into Gmail:
Gmail is having authentication problems. Some features may not work. Try logging in to fix the problem.
However mail can be checked and sent as normal so it is just a minor irritant.
Vivaldi still works as before with Gmail so I assume the issue is a result of Firefox's latest blocking of trackers and/or fingerprinters.

I think that this thread is one of the two "new" ones Karl created by splitting a thread that had become somewhat convoluted.
“I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part"

no need to worry about that no way in hell you deleting firefox history will corrupt your gmail login. if you need proof boot with live mint and login in live mode.
