Q. My Firefox version is 188.8.131.52 and I'd like to update the same to latest version. How do I upgrade my Firefox on Linux?
A. You can easily upgrade firefox on Linux.
Please note that installing Firefox 2 will overwrite your existing installation of Firefox. You won't lose any of your bookmarks or browsing history, but some of your extensions and other add-ons might not work until updates for them are made available.
