Add / Remove Software

Sat Mar 04, 2017 6:43 pm

I got Raspberry 3 with Pixel installed.
When I use Add / Remove Software and select Firefox and press Apply it will install and also when I press OK.
But I can not find the installed Firefox and use the program.

I have a RPi3 with Pixel, and have Firefox installed. Reboot, click on the applications icon (top far left), then select Internet.

edit: ...and it put an icon on my desktop.
My advice applies to RaspiOS only. Please mention if you use another OS.

Looks strange.

I guess your PRi3 doesn't like you. Mine shows both in Applications/Internet and a desktop icon, and both work fine.

edit: open the terminal (command console) and type firefox. Does it start Firefox?

Then you did not install firefox, or installed it incorrectly.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install firefox-esr

that's not the current version.
Run

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
first to update the package information

Thanks!
The problem is solved.
I burned an image to the SD-card and now Firefox is installed.

Good but to avoid such drastic measures always do [Options] --> [Refresh Package Lists] or do:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

from a command line before attempting to do any install or upgrade.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated RPi OS Bullseye w/ Desktop OS.

Well it was not so drastic for me. Pixel was installed by using NOOBS
And I did not check the SHA-1: 9bb4b421a9a39ecbe75701de35ba9a3524b801c9
Perhaps the download was not good.

So I got some training to use ISO and Image-installation.

Again Thanks
