When I tried to install firefox 18.104.22.168 the error says
"No Match for argument: firefox-22.214.171.124"
"Nothing to do".
Does this mean it is already install? though it is not running at all. Most of all, I messed up the older version preinstalled in the distro.
I had similar problems a few weeks back. I tried all that you did. what finally did the trick was I ran ./firefox from the firefox directory created for new version installed. Running this once or twice across reboots replaced the old firefox for me and now I can just use it normally. Probably the right version to use is stored in a cache or something later.
I have removed firefox 1.5 but cannot install firefox 2. I have looked into the packages and I found firefox 1.5. In order to be able to have firefox 2 running shouldn't I find firefox 2 in those packages?
i couldnt find a firefox 2 package.So just installed from firefox websit in tar.gz format. After install just ran ./firefox-bin I think until after a reboot my FC4 just picket that new version then on.
I finally managed to install firefox 2. The trick was to completly firefox 1.5 and then install firefox 2. It worked. Thank you all for your support.
Though I still have problems with plug ins. I need to install Java plugin. I have got the plugin on my pc but firefox is not catching it. What should I do? Should I manually run the plugin into firefox or is there a command I could use so firefox would read those plugins?
Well, I just acquired my Distro Red Hat E/S v 5 with firefox 1.5 preinstalled in it. I needed to upgrade to firefox 126.96.36.199. The trick was that I needed to uninstall firefox 1.5 before I could manage to use firefox 188.8.131.52. I had the idea that I could do an upgrade from 1.5 to 2.0 which wasn't the case. the process went as follow.
cd into the diretory of firefox 1.5
$ yum remove firefox
cd into the newly created folder firefox 184.108.40.206 that you have just untared. Then proceed as follow.
$ yum install firefox
It took me two days to figure that simple command because there is no possibility to do a major upgrade (ie firefox 1.5 to firefox 2). The possibility in upgrading are minors such as 1.5.3 to 1.5.4.
I hope that clarifies everything. If you have any questions, I will glad to help
