tryCode:sudo apt-get remove firefox-mozilla-build
Thanks Nanotube! That worked and now I have no more broken packages. So what would be the proper way to install firefox so I don't screw things up?
great! finally we did it.
as far as installing the mozilla builds... first, make sure you don't have any ubuntu-mozilla-daily or other "third-party" ppas dealing with firefox enabled... then you can just install firefox-mozilla-build. now that your diversion problems are solved, things should 'just work'.
ls -al /usr/bin/firefoxls: cannot access /usr/bin/firefox: No such file or directory

E: Unable to locate package firefox-mozilla-build
Can PPA purge help?

The error message which you receiveseems to suggest that you have already uninstalled Firefox-Mozilla-Build succesfully. Or you have never installed the Firefox-Mozilla-Build from the Ubuntuzilla repository at all, but from some other location. In the latter case you might want to uninstall that package first.Unable to locate package firefox-mozilla-build
Why do you insist on performing the uninstallation on the commandline, although it seems to be unclear which commandline is the appropriate one? Why don't you use the Synaptic GUI, select the Installed Applications part and search for Firefox? Synaptic will only present what has been installed. All you need to do then is selecting Firefox for removal and apply.
Anyway, afterwards you should be fine going ahead and installing the original Ubuntu Firefox version.
Kind regards,Code:sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install firefox
