FreeBSD - Binary packages question
 
Is there an easy way to just get the FreeBSD binary package for the latest firefox. I tried Ports, but it began downloading the source for 1.0.7? I know about pkg_add, but that doesn't actually use a source repository, does it?

I'm using FreeBSD 6.0. BTW, for the first time, I've got online using FreeBSD and configured my sound card as well. So looking forward to a more successful journey this time.

Oh dear, as I speak this, I've clobbered KDE's fonts. All I get now is boxes instead of text. I was just following the FreeBSD handbook about installing more fonts. Guess I should learn more before I venture into ports.
