Firefox - no updates

Post by renzor »

The latest update to FF 41.0.1 has been out nearly 2 days yet Mint has not given an update. Why is this the case?

Re: Firefox - no update to Firefox 41.0.1

Hello, renzor.

Be fair. "Firefox - no updates" is a bit of an exaggeration. Firefox has been updated from v40.0.3 to v41.0 only a few days ago. Only the most recent bugfix version v41.0.1 has not made its way into the Ubuntu repos and into the Linux Mint repos yet.
The Ubuntu Mozilla Security Team seem to have prepared Firefox 41.0.1 for all supported Ubuntu releases. Yet, this fact alone does not guarantee it will be available in the official repos soon or at all. We will see.

Cheers,
Karl

Update Monday, October 5th, 18:10 CEST:
On Mint 13, we get what the Ubuntu repositories offer for Ubuntu 12.04. Just a minute ago, this Firefox where I am typing now has been updated from Firefox 41.0 to Firefox 41.0.1. This is the most recent stable release. So the bugfixes have arrived.
