    Default New Firefox install broke the links

    I am running Suse 10.2,
    I downloaded a new copy of Firefox, but did not know where to put it. I did a find, and discovered about 8 directories; some under user accounts, usr/bin, usr/lib, bin, etc.

    So I picked /usr/bin and untar'd the file.
    The links broke. Could not launch from the icon on any user.
    Still can launch with a terminal window by typing in the full path, but Firefox terminates whenever I try to print.

    Questions:
    1) Where SHOULD I have untar'd the file?
    2) Can I un-do the damage ?
    3) How do I fix the print problem?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    My question is:

    Why don't you just have the build service repo in your list.

    Index of /repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_10.2
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    You have to excuse me, I am conversant in Unix using the command line, but am a newbie using the GUI. You will have to lead me on this one.

    You posted:

    What is the service repo?
    I followed the links and found several files that contain the following (I added quotes so as not to insert code here).


    "name=Mozilla based projects (openSUSE_10.2)"
    "type=rpm-md"
    "baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla"
    "/openSUSE_10.2/"
    "gpgcheck=1"
    "gpgkey=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla"
    "/openSUSE_10.2/repodata/"
    "repomd.xml.key"
    "enabled=1"

    These are not executable, even when I open them with firefox.
    Any other thoughts ?

    Using the Yast GUI
    you need to add a repo
    select BY URL
    Name it: Mozilla
    then copy and paste the url I gave above Index of /repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_10.2

    finish

    Now you can update to latest FF
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    However, you should upgrade SuSE to version 11.0, since the support for 10.2 will be discontinued soon.
