Hello,

My name is David.

Was the current version of Firefox installed using apt-get or the package manager?

I paid you $5 for help and the first thing you did was ask m to signup foe a year. I don't need that kind of help. Thank you. Goodbye.

That was an offer from Just Answer, not from me as I only use this site just like those that ask the questions.

If you change your mind just let me know, as I can provide you with a solution once you answer the question i posted above.

Thanks,

David.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
