Install Firefox 43.0 on Manjaro 15.12

Manjaro 15.12 Deepin comes with Chromium browser installed. Its a good web browser but I prefer Firefox than Chromium. So, I switch to Firefox now. Installing Mozilla Firefox on Manjaro 15.12 is pretty easy. I am using the new Manjaro 15.12 Deepin edition.

If this is a freshly installed Manjaro, we need to refresh the database first. Open Add/Remove Software and press reload or refresh button. If required, you can also set the preferences on Add/Remove Software, change the mirror location, enable AUR repository etc.

Press OK and the installation will take place. When I wrote this tutorial, Firefox hits version 43.0. It has many improvements including bug fixes and speed improvements.
