In case this helps others, that occasionally need to use firefox on their RPI3 and also keep the RPI3 up to date...

Typically after running:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

firefox stops working for me.

Jasem helped me out with these lines and it gets firefox working again:
$ wget ports.ubuntu.com/pool/main/f/firefox/fir...u0.12.04.1_armhf.deb
$ sudo apt-get purge firefox
$ sudo dpkg -i firefox_52.0.2+build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_armhf.deb

Adding this line will also allow you to hold firefox at this working version:

$ sudo apt-mark hold firefox

Should you later want to update firefox then:

$ sudo apt-mark untold firefox

I hope this helps others.

Except that Chromium seems to have vanished. . .

sudo apt-get install chromium

Package chromium is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

Package 'chromium' has no installation candidate

I edited the AstroPi3 Script today. There should be 3 improvements based on recommendations people have said over the last several days.

1. I added the ~/.config/kdeglobals file so that the breeze icons will work properly in KStars without needing the oxygen icon theme installed

2. I commented out the CUPS parallel printer Kernel modules that don't exist on raspberry pi in the cups config file so that the boot time is shorter.

3. I set Firefox to a version that works.

Thanks,

Rob
