Installing FireFox on Kali Linux


Kali Linux


So you want to install FireFox on Kali Linux. If you were like me you tried apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build and were suprised when it didn’t work. Here is how I did it.

Installation – **Make sure Ice Weasel is closed**

Step 1 – Add “deb all main” to /etc/apt/source.list

Step 2- apt-key adv –recv-keys –keyserver C1289A29

Step 3 – apt-get update

Step 4 – apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build

Just the commands:

echo “deb all main” | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-key adv –recv-keys –keyserver C1289A29
apt-get update
apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build

If you happen to get this message “” apt-get remove won’t work. you will need to use the below command and then reinstall. This normally happens when you try to do the above steps with Ice Weasel open.

sudo dpkg –remove –force-remove-reinstreq firefox-mozilla-build
