I Just wanted to clarify that I doubt what I downloaded per se is a patch as such. I was trying to install themes to 1.03 version and Firefox told me I must upgrade to 1.04 to do so and took me to the download for the tar.gz. Having unzipped all the files to a firefox-installer folder on my desktop and run firexox-installer I got another firefox-installer file with the .exe and a whole pile of other files.
If you click the .exe here you get the new version and if you click the desktop icon you get 1.03.
I then entered the console and typed:
I opened all locations listed and in the containing folders the contents were nothing like those of the new firefox-installer folder. Therefore I could not replace contents as you might do in windows to patch an installation.
To date YaST 2 has not offered a patch and I'm sure when it does that it will patch the appropriate files in the appropriate directory(ies) but that the file contents will be similar to those originally installed as opposed to those in the tar.gz from Mozilla.
Maybe I'm wrong but I suspect this to be the case. Even with Mozilla's release notes they are not clear as to what a likely destination folder would be in linux /bin/, /usr/ or /lib/ or whatever so where are we supposed to install their download to /home/ , /Desktop/ ????
As mentioned I only want 1 version of it running and not 2. If anyone can help or shed more liht on the problem I'd appreciate your comments
