    Unhappy Firefox 3 RPM?

    I see that Firefox 3 has been released and I wish to upgrade.

    I downloaded the "tar.bz2" from the Firefox website and installed it using the command "./firefox" and everything seemed to work fine. Firefox 3 opened up and then when I closed it I then closed the console window too and now whenever I click on the Firefox icon I still get Firefox 2 - Firefox 3 seems to have disappeared.

    I then went to Index of /pub/opensuse/repositories/mozilla:/beta/openSUSE_10.3 and downloaded the RPM for "Firefox 3.0-8.1" but it wouldn't install as I was in dependency hell, I even tried installing "mozilla-xulrunner190-1.9.0-16.1.i586.rpm" too but it didn't help.


    Does anyone know of an official Firefox 3 RPM, preferably in the openSUSE repositories? If not, does anyone know when it will be added?

    Thank you, that worked for me.

    One thing to note: Firefox changed the back/forward buttons from 6 & 7 on the mouse to 8 & 9.

    For me this meant changing my ButtonMapping in xorg.conf from

    Code:
    Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7 4 5 8 9"
    to

    Code:
    Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 8 9 6 7 4 5"
    And restarting X for it to work.

    There's also a way to tell firefox to go back to using 6 & 7 here.

    Firefox just uses your XORG file now instead of just doing whatever it wants. Thats why.

    I think there is something wrong with FF3 from the repositories. I start up one instance and 2 PID shows up, and they take 200MB+ of RAM.
