Installing and running Firefox via Flatpak

Flatpak is a neat little cross-distro package manager

Here’s a quickstart guide

Step 1:

Install flatpak

sudo apt install flatpak

If you use gnome you can also install this add-on so that you can browse flatpak applications in your desktop environment

sudo apt install gnome-software-plugin-flatpak

Next we’ll add the official flatpak repository

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub

Now we can install firefox

flatpak install flathub org.mozilla.firefox

Step 2:

Now as to how to run firefox, if you are using gnome you can just use the plugin mentioned previously and browse to it, however if you are trying to run it from console flatpak has a way to do that

flatpak run org.mozilla.firefox

That’s it!
