Re: Update Firefox

i wouldn't really expect firefox to be updated anytime soon as its in the mint repos and well they have been typically very slow to pipe down new versions of the applications ... i'd expect iceweasel 4.0 from experimental to hit Sid soon then obviously testing soon there after ...

Just go for it man, Sid is not as unstable as you may think. It's cutting edge with all the latest packages and has been working quite well for me for some time now. With the new .37 kernel there is no need for these liquorix ones at the moment :)
