We have a new patched version of firefox-60.0.1 +2 that should allow for easier installing and switching language packs. This is all do to input of user fehlix. These are his comments:
This Firefox update provides a semi-automatic activation and enabling of the users locales for the Firefox user-interfaces for new and existing Firefox profiles. A user needs only to install the firefox-language pack from within MX Package Installer (MXPI) to get the UI automatically switched to the user locale. In rar situations it might be required for users with existing profile to disable and enable the language-addon within Firefox. Such race conditions might exists either due to well known MMCM (Mozilla Magic Cache Mystic) or due to the secretly known MMPC (Mozilla Moon Phase Conditions).
We're working on a similar fir for thunderbird as well.

Thanks Fehlix! :number1:

firefox-61.0 (will soon be) available to upgrade to from the main repository.

There were several critical security flaws fixed in this one.

For more info, check out the firefox release notes page.

For MX-15/16 I'm still seeing 60.0.2 as the version that's available (and I just reloaded repos a couple minutes ago).

Code: Select all

$ apt-cache policy firefox
firefox:
  Installed: 60.0.2~mozillabinaries-1mx15+1
  Candidate: 60.0.2~mozillabinaries-1mx15+1
  Version table:
 *** 60.0.2~mozillabinaries-1mx15+1 0
        500 http://mxrepo.com/mx/repo/ mx15/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
I do see 61.0 in the mxrepo pool folder http://mxrepo.com/mx/repo/pool/main/f/firefox/, but not in the package list http://mxrepo.com/mx/repo/dists/mx15/ma ... 4/Packages .
