Parrot OS' source list needs to be fixed

Briefly describe your issue below:
For instance - I’m sure other software have the same kind of problem -, Firefox 65 and ESR 60.6.1 (the ones shown by synaptic, based on default sources.list) - have a lot of problems; the current version of mentioned application is 66.0.4 and 60.6.2, but until now Parrot repos’ still in v65/60.6.1

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA, etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64)


What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)


Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)

Similar solution: direct download from Mozilla (in this very case).

If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:


The packages in the repository with little exception come down from the debian repository as is the case for any debian distro. This means that before it lands in the parrot repo a pkg has to be debianized then parrot maintainers add the unique configurations to fit parrot this takes time so you have to chill and firefox-esr is supposed to be older(esr=extended support release)
