Firefox 3.5.6 Upgrade


Anyone built the latest release?

Here's the source: ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.or.../3.5.6/source/

Security Fixes: http://www.mozilla.org/security/know...l#firefox3.5.6

I'm currently downloading the source and will build and report back how it goes.

Regards

It's working without pycairo upgrade so I didn't notice.
EDIT: Updated with pycairo info. Thanks JokerBoy.

Regards

I'll give it a try when it's in the current tree. I should think it will be in a few days.

It's a matter of looking good actually... latest public update "Thu Dec 17 20:51:37 UTC 2009" contains the new firefox but it has not hit all mirrors yet apparently.

As Eric pointed out, you can get it from -current. Here is a mirror that has it.

Just to clarify, firefox is unable to update itself and I should get later slack packages?

Hi,

No firefox won't update itself. You can either wait for the packages to hit in the mirror you selected and get it by using slackpkg, or download the slackbuild and compile and upgrade yourself.

From 'Current Changeelog':
Quote:
l/cairo-1.8.8-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.
Firefox 3.5.6 requires a new cairo to fix a bug on Windows. :-/
Can someone explain this to me please?. Does it mean a bug on MS Windows?. If so, why the upgrade on Linux?.

Bill.

Hmm.

Firefox still has the update options in preferences. Is the functionality not there to match?

Would this never work? Why could it not?
