How to upgrade Firefox 88 to Firefox 104
Hello - I've been looking around the Firefox site, and the Internet in general, and so far haven't found out the answer to my question: how do I get Firefox 104 to work on my Linux Mint 18.2 Cinnamon Sonya 32 bit? Specifically what I haven't been able to determine is whether or not I first need to upgrade my Linux, which I suspect. And if so, what's the minimum level of the OS that is required? I may be overlooking the simple answers, but so far I cannot find them. And so far the Firefox website upgrade feature does nothing that I can detect. Thank you for any assistance - Doug.

"And so far the Firefox website upgrade feature does nothing that I can detect." To clarify, in other words the Firefox auto-upgrade feature stopped downloading upgrades some time ago. However the on-demand download of version 104 does work to place the files on my computer, but I don't want to start the installation of 104 until I'm sure that I don't first need to upgrade to some more recent level of Linux, or have done that - Doug.
The release notes contain the following link to system requirements.
You appear to be running Firefox from the Ubuntu repositories. When you OS reaches EOL then your Firefox version will no longer be updated and you would have to switch to Firefox from the Mozilla server.
