Will TBB for Linux be able to D/L & install updates OK, it's installed 
(extracted) to a different directory -like /opt?

So far in Mint 18.1, for Firefox - downloaded version - installed to 
/opt, there's no automatic update possible - AFAIK.  Also been told the 
same - right or wrong.

When Fx tar package is D/L & installed, it doesn't even show a "check 
for updates" in the about:firefox UI - by default.

So I'm not sure if TBB - Linux will automatically install updates (as in 
Windows), or if you have to D/L the new package each release & extract it?
