In this post, we’re going to install Firefox in Crunchbang 11 ‘Waldorf’ same procedures here works for Debian.

By the default Crunchbang come with Iceweseal as a replacement for Firefox. But myself and many others see have had few problems with Iceweasel in terms of speed.

Open terminal:

We first need to remove iceweasel.

sudo apt-get remove iceweasel

Open sources.list in favorite text editor.
