PPA, Snap, or Flathub release channel for Developer Edition


(Brylie Christopher Oxley) #1

When clicking ‘Get Firefox Developer Edition’ on the official website, I am given a .tar.bz2 file. I am a developer, but that doesn’t mean I want to manage software installations by extracting compressed files in my home folder and manually checking for updates.

Please consider adding a release channel for Firefox Developer Edition, so that end-users can have updates managed by their package manager. For example, Flathub could be used to publish releases.

I am not an expert on Linux distributions, but we can file a bug to see if there are channels that make updates for dev edition easier.
