Install and run Firefox on the Organelle M (OS 3.2) with an Extra Menu script that locks the unit and remounts the root folder with Read-Write permissions while it’s running, and resets the OS time and date from the internet (includes an uninstall script).

USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISKS : if the OS crashes while it’s running that could break it! (that’s the first reason why the script locks the Organelle)

(don’t expect a smooth experience, i find it convenient for uploading/downloading patches, samples and stuff directly from/to the Organelle)

NOTE#1 : the volume knob doesn’t work, the output volume is always at max, it can only be set via Firefox, so be careful!

NOTE#2 : we can’t run audio from Firefox and Pure Data at the same time (that’s the other reason why the script locks the Organelle).

#1 connect the Organelle to the internet via Wifi

#2 copy Firefox_1-0.zop into /Patches

#3 reload the Organelle (menu Storage -> Reload)

#4 run “Install Firefox_1-0.zop”

this will download and install the latest compatible revision and reset the OS time and date from the internet.

here are the command lines of the installer :

sudo mount / -o remount,rw

sudo date -s “$(wget -qSO- –max-redirect=0 2>&1 | grep Date: | cut -d’ ‘ -f5-8)Z”

sudo apt update

sudo apt-get install firefox-esr << END



sudo mount / -o remount,ro

cp -r $USER_DIR/Patches/Firefox $USER_DIR/System

rm -r $USER_DIR/Patches/Firefox
