How to manually upgrade to firefox 4.0

Postby nbob on Sun Mar 27, 2011 3:54 pm

Hi guys. I hope everything is going well for you.

I'm using Linux Mint Debian Edition. I see that the latest version of firefox is out and I would like to try it. Problem is, it probably wont show up in my package manager for a long, long time.

So I thought I would try to manually install it. I downloaded it and untar'ed the zip fie correctly. Then I copied over my old firefox directory with this one. Didn't work. The old firefox was still getting loaded up. I've done some research and it looks like i have to create a link. I don't know how to do this.

Any help would be appreciated. take care, :?:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
