Query about update

I was going to update using zypper as i have lots of updates. When zypper showed the summary of what it was going to do
I noted:

The following application is going to be REMOVED:
  "Firefox Web Browser"

Furthermore, i did not see where an new Firefox Web Browser was going to be installed.
Am I going to have firefox if I accept the upgade?

Just want to be sure, as it will probabley be very difficult to fix it.(for me)

Thank you

Thank you

… and the upgrade installed, note the large red bold I added.:wink:

you should also post your repo list

zypper lr -d

afaik the update repo uses delta rpm’s applied to the original from oss (it makes for a much smaller download) applying delta’s does not require a removal but if you had Firefox from another repo (like the Mozilla repo) the delta could not be applied so a removal and a full download would be required, one of the better reasons to stay on the oss repo and not add too many repo’s is the delta rpm’s used, an update from any 3rd party repo downloads the entire package
