  3. When I get to "apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build" i get

    root@kali:~# apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package firefox-mozilla-build

    Any ideas?

    1. Kindly write this in proper way and correctly
      echo –e “\ndeb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main” | tee –a /etc/apt/source.list> /dev/null

      you can also see official page : http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ubuntuzilla/index.php?title=Main_Page#Installation

  4. If I follow that tutorial I am left with a bunch of packets marked for removal.
    apt-get autoremove would give me a crippled system.
    Is there a way to avoid this and still get rid of iceweasel?

    1. You just need to put apt-get remove iceweasel and your iceweasel gone i have clearly explained in above tutorial.

  5. There is a typo in step #3. Instead of echo –e “\ndeb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main” | tee –a /etc/apt/source.list> /dev/null

    It should be echo –e “\ndeb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main” | tee –a /etc/apt/sources.list> /dev/null

    You have the same typo twice, hence why Brandon Lewis was not able to find the firefox-mozilla-build

    1. That is the exact same where is the typo?

  6. When i type apt-get update it shows type 'apt-key' is not known on line 10 in sourcelist/
