How to install Firefox in Elementary OS

Firefox is a free and open source web browser developed by Mozilla Foundation. Available for all different operating systems like Windows, Linux, Mac OS and other Mobile OS, Mozilla Firefox was the first browser to challenge the once-dominating Internet Explorer from Microsoft. It even went on to become the most used web browser before the rise of Google Chrome.

Firefox provides all features a web browser can have like tabbed browsing, spell check, search and bookmark options, a download manager, private browsing and much more. It has its own set of plugins that you can use to make your day to day life easier.

Recently, Firefox received a new version : Firefox Quantum, which challenges to be the fastest web browser. Even I downloaded a copy and tried it the very first day it was released and it fulfills what it promises.
