Install Firefox on Kali Linux

Install Firefox on Kali Linux
Mozilla Firefox is a quite handy browser compared to Iceweasel (default browser in Kali Linux). I has lot of plug-in features that Iceweasel lag. Sometimes, we find it difficulty while navigating through Iceweasel. Hence, I thought of installing Mozilla Firefox. To do this, you have to first un-install Mozilla from Kali Linux or else it won’t allow you to install Mozilla Firefox. Here are the step that I performed.

1. Open root terminal window and type
apt-get remove iceweasel

it removes iceweasel from the application menu

2. type echo -e “\ndeb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main” | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list > /dev/null

it adds repository for the installation

3. type apt-key adv –recv-keys –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com C1289A29

import the required gpg key
e
4. type apt-get update

update the required package

5. type apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build

install mozilla firefox on your sytem

6. type firefox on terminal window to start working with mozilla firefox

Or Just use Iceweasel as it is almost the same :)
