How do I update Firefox 3 Beta 5 to Firefox 3.01?


Using KDE 4, with OpenSuSE 11.

How do I update to the latest version of firefox?

Please tell me!

Thanks in advance,


Simply complete the following:

Add this repository to YaST*: Index of /repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.0

(Click and then copy the URL from the address bar in the new tab)

To update Firefox:

  1. Open YaST Package Manager
  2. Enter the root password when prompted
  3. Wait for the repositories to load
  4. Click the “Upgrades” tab
  5. Select “MozillaFirefox”
  6. Click the “Update” (may also be called “Upgrade”) button
  7. Click the “Apply” button
  8. Wait for Firefox to update
  9. Decline to install more software

When you restart Firefox, you will be asked to agree to the Terms of Service.

Once you agree, the latest available version (which was just installed above) will open.

Hope that helps! :slight_smile:

    7. Enter the URL of the repository
    8. Enter a name for the new repository
    9. Click “Next”
    10. Click “Finish”
