Can't get multiple versions of Firefox or Chrome to run

firefox xzm is building without /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop (it will start from the terminal) (yes, the build script needs to be fixed) It could be because an update doesn't need to give a user another firefox.desktop file whereas a new install does. If firefox starts via terminal one c...

tor: undefined symbol: evutil_secure_rng_set_urandom_device

I agree. Download the ESR that you want, put it in the /tmp folder then run update-firefox in a terminal window. :good:
