Installing Mozilla Upgrade: firefox-3.6.8.tar.bz2
Downloaded the above file.
Also downloaded and installed an update to my existing Firefox
web browser, updating it from Version 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124.
As predicted, Firefox now has a new security and stability update labeled 3.6.9, which I will download at my earliest opportunity.
Once that is done, I will try to install each upgrade as per the suggestions to date to upgrade my Mozilla Firefox web browser from version 126.96.36.199 to 3.6.9.
My hardware: ASUS Eee PC 4G (701)
My operating system: Linux - Debian Distro by Xandros
if the operating system on the ASUS Eee is "limpus light"
you don't , limpus light will not run the current firefox .At least with out some serious hacking
what IS the os on the laptop linux????? what ?????
Xandros ? if so use the package manager " Synaptic " to install the current version FOR that OS
also the firefox .tar.bz2 is THE SOURCE CODE and needs to be compiled
you can not "just" install it
Asus Eees have Xandros, an ancient version of Debian based on Etch. I may be wrong but I doubt the current version of Firefox will even run on Etch.
Extract, and run.
Take a look at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...n-debian-2962/
no,don't install that 3.6.8,wait a week or two you will get 3.6.9
after installing 3.6.8,I was unable to open sites like youtube,sourceforge,linuxquestions etc.
Severl days ago, i met the the same problem as you.
first you need to decompress the tar file:
You can already get 3.6.9, but it hasn't been released.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20100824 Firefox/3.6.9
Upgrading Library: GTK+ 2.8 to GTK+ 2.10 or newer.
At the Terminal Shell Prompt, I have entered the following commands:
1) To decompress the *.tar file
sudo tar -C /opt/ -xf firefox-3.6.8.tar.bz2
2) To create a soft link to /opt/firefox/firefox
sudo ln -sf /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
so far, so good.
Next, I copied the soft link above to /home/user
and double-clicked on it to run the firefox application file.
A second Terminal Shell opens, and I get this error message:
"We're sorry, this application requires a version of the
GTK+ library that is not installed on your computer.
You have GTK+ 2.8.
This application requires GTK+ 2.10 or newer.
Please upgrade your GTK+ library if you wish to use
How do I upgrade my GTK+ library from 2.8 to 2.10 or newer?
