Error while installing Firefox on Kali Linux

I tried installing Firefox and got an error like this :

root@Hari:/home/harichandan# apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
wine is already the newest version.
wine set to manually installed.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0 B/29.7 MB of archives.
After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? y
dpkg: error processing firefox-mozilla-build (--configure):
 package firefox-mozilla-build is not ready for configuration
 cannot configure (current status `half-installed')
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

So to get around this, you just need to run the command :

apt-get install --reinstall firefox-mozilla-build
