Firefox upgrade

Postby dsrh » Wed Dec 21, 2011 7:34 pm

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

Code: Select all

lmde32g wayne # apt-cache policy firefox iceweasel
iceweasel:
  Installed: 9.0-1
  Candidate: 9.0-1
  Version table:
 *** 9.0-1 0
        500 http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
firefox:
  Installed: 5.0-1linuxmint1
  Candidate: 5.0-1linuxmint1
  Version table:
 *** 5.0-1linuxmint1 0
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

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