How does one install Firefox Quantum on Devuan? [SOLVED]

How does one install Firefox Quantum on Devuan?

So I got the newest version of Firefox and it has been extracted from the tar file. But how to I make it installed as a program. I try opening Linux on other applications such as Discord for example but instead it opens Lynx (a command line browser).

Extract the tar.gz to /tmp. Then do as root:

mv firefox /opt/firefox

Then create a starter on the desktop. Command points to /opt/firefox/firefox, as icon you can select an icon from /opt/firefox/browser/chrome/icons/default.
