    Which openSUSE version are you using?
    If it's 11.4, you can install FF 5 from this repo: Index of /repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.4

    You can try this method:

    Open up YAST.

    Software Repositories > Add > Community Repositories > Add the Mozilla repository > answer "Yes" to import the GPG key > refresh all enabled repositories

    Finally, switch the vendor to Mozilla.

    While still in YAST > Software Management > click the repositories tab > select the Mozilla repository > click "Switch all system packages to this vendor" > Accept

    You should now have Firefox 5, and will automatically pull in updates from the Mozilla repository from now on.

    This is what worked for me on openSUSE 11.4. I might try this on 11.3 when I get the chance.

    Wow! I just realized, this was my very first post on the forums? Weird.
