Where is Firefox 33.1.1 for Mint 17 ?

Post by jazz.h »

I still haven't got the update on Mint 17 - 64bit.
It's been approx a month since my Firefox 33.0 got the update.
Should I install it manually?

it only just got here, a few nights ago.

- right click the Mint updater, that's on the taskbar,
& click on refresh.

- see if that triggers it.

Hm, I am a bit amazed that Firefox 31.1.1 should have come to any Linux Mint 17 system through the normal Ubuntu repositories.
I checked only yesterday, and the latest version on the official archive.ubuntu.com server even for Ubuntu 14.10 was Firefox 33.0.
This matches my own experience. On none of my Linux Mint 13, Linux Mint 17, Ubuntu 12.04.5 and Ubuntu 14.04.1 systems, Firefox 33.1.x has ever appeared in the list of available updates.
This matches the list on the Ubuntu Mozilla Security PPA in Launchpad, too. They have never offered anything newer than Firefox 33.0 till yesterday.
This might make sense, too, because as far as I recall the Firefox changelogs between 33.0 and 31.1.1, all the interim versions served to fix bugs affecting Windows only. And my Windows 7 SP1 has got Firefox 33.1.1.

Today's change:
Tada! My Linux Mint 13 32-bit Cinnamon (Ubuntu 12.04.5) has just received Firefox 34.0 through the Ubuntu Mozilla Security PPA. :D

Code: Select all

$ dpkg --list firefox* | grep "^ii"
ii  firefox                                      34.0+build2-0ubuntu0.12.04.1        Safe and easy web browser from Mozilla
ii  firefox-locale-de                            34.0+build2-0ubuntu0.12.04.1        German language pack for Firefox
ii  firefox-locale-en                            34.0+build2-0ubuntu0.12.04.1        English language pack for Firefox
The same happened on Linux Mint 17 32-bit xfce tonight.

Code: Select all

$ dpkg --list firefox* | grep "^ii"
ii  firefox                                     34.0+build2-0ubuntu0.14.04.1   i386      Safe and easy web browser from Mozilla
ii  firefox-locale-de                           34.0+build2-0ubuntu0.14.04.1   i386      German language pack for Firefox
ii  firefox-locale-en                           34.0+build2-0ubuntu0.14.04.1   i386      English language pack for Firefox
