Install Firefox on FreeBSD

To install the Firefox browser, simply use the following command:

pkg install firefox

See Chapter 6.2 of the FreeBSD Handbook for more details.

To invoke Firefox from the command line, type:

firefox &

Be sure that Xorg has been installed and that dbus has been enabled per the directions include here.

You may also have to run the following command as root:

dbus-uuidgen > /etc/machine-id

After you have successfully launched the browser, now would be a good time to install some extensions to enhance the browsing experience. My favorites are:

uBlock Origin
Vimperator
