My Firefox is still version 5... when will it be part of the updates? Or do I have a problem?
Thanks

I think that that is the version of Firefox which came with update pack 3, so there is no problem. When update pack 4 comes out, it will have an updated Firefox. I think that the team is waiting for bugs to clear up in debian testing for gnome 3/X11, which were broken at some point upstream.

Edit: Yes, Firefox 5 was what came with the last update pack.

No, you do not have a problem.

LMDE Update pack has ff5.

Mine still have ff5 even I use Sid all the time.

A difference is, I always install iceweasel, which is Debian unbranded version of firefox.

Yesterday my Sid gnome dist-upgrade ended up with iceweasel 9

I just upgraded Iceweasel (the Debian way of Firefox, absolutely identical) to Version 9.0 via the Repo
