Thread: Installing Firefox 3.6 on Suse 11.1

  1. #1

    Default Installing Firefox 3.6 on Suse 11.1

    I can't think how to do this.

    I was using Firefox 3.6 on Suse 11.1, but I have just reinstalled my root partition and now have Firefox 3.0.4. Firefox immediately warned me to install 3.6.

    I have downloaded a tar.b2, but I have no idea how to install it. Is it possible to do it through Yast? If I need to use Konsole, please can I have instructions and also where I need to put it.

    I really need to have it installed as I use a plugin which is now not working with Firefox 3.0.4

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Of course, your best action might be to update to openSUSE 11.3 before it is too late to use 11.1, However, you could add the following repository.

    Index of /repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.1/x86_64

    Search on Firefox, use the versions tab to select the latest. Several more files need to be updated as well.

    Hi,
    Thank you for the above I had a go at the repository with no sucess. So I bit the bullet and downloaded Suse 11.3. (I have a 10 GB download limit and have to pay for extra)

    This morning when I booted up my machine Firefox 3.6 was installed. The thing I forgot to do last night was restart Firefox or my system., so it probably was successful.

    Anyway I have 11.3 now so I will install in my own time.

    Thank you.
