Firefox in 21.04 is still on version 84

In both Focal & Groovy, Firefox is already on version 85. What’s the delay for Firefox on Hirsute?

Snap is up to date though:

I know, but it’s not exactly a solution.

It does work, though, and I have the beta running on it. However, I still prefer to run the stable Firefox from the repo.

Firefox 85 is in the proposed repo.

There is currently a regression in a linked dependency called rustc that is preventing it’s migration to the main repo.

Just be patient - remember you are helping to test 21.04 … :slight_smile:


Thanks for the info.
