    You have to compile the one from the website yourself.

    OR, you can take the easy route and do the following:

    • Hit accept and you should be on your way.

    Forget the file you downloaded. Add the repo quoted.
    Then run Updates.

    If you added the repository to software repositories then the command
    Code:
    sudo zypper up MozillaFirefox
    will update Firefox to the latest version in the repository.
    Good luck.

    I added repo and used sudo zypper up MozillaFirefox, but get following result:
    linux-h9uz:~ # sudo zypper up MozillaFirefox
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    No update candidate for 'MozillaFirefox'.
    Resolving package dependencies...
    Nothing to do.

    Any ideas?

    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    I bet the output of the above
    zypper lr -d

    shows you don't have the Mozilla repo enabled
