I'm going to reply in English because the relevant vocabulary escapes me.

You can just unpack it and run directly:
Code: Select all
tar -xf firefox-57.0.tar.bz2
cd firefox
./firefox


I also found this (which I'm sure is trustworthy) to make a package for it:

To do that, you need a package, which you can create using the script I linked to. It will also install it for you if called with -i - root powers are needed.

Code: Select all
wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/ruario/9672798/raw/7fcfc9b46b8347e058e713a39c1b827672d99af9/latest-firefox.sh
chmod +x latest-firefox.sh
sudo ./latest-firefox.sh --install


When you next do a package upgrade, it will revert to the firefox from the repositories. To prevent this, edit /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc to exclude the package, by adding an entry to the EXCLUDE line. Note these are separated by commas with no spaces. (You can also do this in Gslapt). Something like this should do it:

EXCLUDE=^aaa_elflibs,^aaa_base,^devs,^glibc.*,^kernel-.*,^mozilla-firefox,^rootuser-settings,^zzz-settings.*,-i?86-,


The added part is in bold, whatever else is there, you should leave exactly as it is.

After some time, the ESR version of Firefox will probably catch up with Quantum, and then you should go back to using the repository package by undoing this change to slapt-getrc.

There's this:

Chrome itself is somewhat problematic.
