    Default How to upgrade Firefox with dependencies

    I would like to upgrade Firefox on my version 11.4 laptop.
    I'm not really interested in the OS upgrade right now.
    What tool and command should I use to pull down
    the dependencies automatically?
    I tried yast -i firefox using root command-line, but no luck.

    I have 16.0.2 of Firefox.

    Have a good look at
    [/URL]https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Evergreen[/URL], and apply the
    changes.

    Evergreen has Firefox 24 for openSUSE 11.4.


    11.4 Evergreen is in... I'd call it "emergency updates only mode". Most
    of the maintenance has ended, but now and then there are still some
    crucial updates.

    Also you will have to change the repo urls to discontinued/static
    mirrors. Like:

    http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/dis...d/update/11.4/
