The thing is, if his update repo has higher priority, Yast will tell him to upgrade his packages to that of the update repository, even if the packages from a different repository are newer. I just checked and the update repo does have the lower version of firefox. So it’s very likely the update repository priority is the cause.
I have had the same & did the update. It will not touch firefox,just xulrunner,nsprr & one other ( can’t remember which atm) I updated 3 days ago with no ill effects.Personally i prefer Seamonkey browser.
Strangely, I had this update come via the official repo to a 10.3 system I retained. The distributed (updated) FF version for 10.3 is 220.127.116.11. I tried to install it, but it failed with dependency errors on xulrunner etc. Hmm, it couldn’t satisfy them from the normal distribution repo. I guess someone screwed up.
BTW, do you prefer Seamonkey (on 11.1) for ease of use, or is it faster than FF?? I haven’t tried it yet.
I prefer it as it is an all in one piece of software. It has email,chat,web & web-page creator ( wysiwyg ) all integrated & to me is faster than firefox,as once you use one component,all the rest can be accessed from that component,instead of firing up another prog to take up resources.That’s MHO, try it & see what you think
Thanks Andy, your comments particularly on performance are encouraging. I will definitely try it out. Any performance gains are worth considering, given the growing trend for resource hungry software releases these days.
