RPM packaged firefox 5 somewhere ?


I am being tired of this old 3.6 firefox, want to upgrade to firefox 5. It is of course available at mozilla.org for my 64 bits suse, but i would like to know if a pre packaged .rpm exists somewhere ?

Thanks for info

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.

Very strange indeed! lol!
But welcome anyway.

thanks for your answers, it was my first post in this forum also.

Just upgraded to 11.4, now run ff5
