Thread: Upgrading to Firefox 3.5

  1. #1

    Default Upgrading to Firefox 3.5

    Hi all,

    I am a bit confused... I am running OpenSuSE 11.1 x86_64.

    In YaST I have the following repository:

    url: download.opensuse.org
    repository: repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.1/

    The latest version of Firefox I see is 3.0.11.
    Shouldn't I be seeing a MozillaFirefox 3.5 in there? I have told the repository to update, but no cigar.

    Any and all help is appreciated,

    It's there now at the repo you listed. Maybe you need to re-check the url you entered in YaST to make sure it's correct. If for some reason you can't get it to work you can download the rpm directly from the repo website.

    Hi
    I'm guessing that the mirror your being redirected too hasn't synced
    with the latest yet.

    You could try changing download.opensuse.org to another mirror that has
    it. For example opensuse.ca.unixheads.org

    Why not just fetch it directly from the mozilla.org website?

    I did this myself. Unpacked the archive in a folder and then I just changed some settings in my browser icon on the desktop based on the new file path for Mozilla Firefox.

    Working flawlessly for me. Often a combination of extensions can be a problem. Always worth testing a vanilla .mozilla folder

    Hello,

    it also works flawless here, but I'm just having a few extensions installed. Quite contrary it works better than the old Firefox 3.0 version.

    Have a lot of fun

    Tested FF 3.5 first by copying/renaming my .mozilla folder to .mozzila_old for a backup. It wasn't needed as 3.5 works.

    I'm only using 5 extensions and all of them work.
    Go for it! You can always re-install...

    Question Re: Upgrading to Firefox 3.5

    I am confused myself and new to Suse 11.1 I have the same OS as the original post. I downloaded FF3.5 form the website and extracted the files to my desktop, but upon opening it I see no install file.
