What's wrong with Slackware's own Firefox-3.0.10?

Can't you update package with current version?

I'm not sure if src2pkg will work for firefox, but this would be more like what you'd have to do:
src2pkg -C -R -VV -S -i='sh ./installpkg' -Z1 firefox-3.0.10.tar.bz2
(try with and without the -S)

You will have to download the updates before they are found on your system.

Find a mirror close to you at:
http://www.slackware.com/getslack/

And download the package there, and install it then. You might want to grab all other updates there as well and install them using 'upgradepkg'. If you want, you can subscribe to the security update mailing list at: http://www.slackware.com/lists/

Edit /etc/slackpkg/mirrors. Uncomment (remove the # from) your nearest mirror. Then run slackpkg update, then slackpkg upgrade-all.

Just curious, but why not? Is there something strange about how Firefox is built?

No, except that he is using the official pre-compiled binary package. I haven't tried using src2pkg to convert a firefox package in a long time, so I am unsure if it is working as expected. I would imagine that there are some tweaks that would need to be done anyway.

As brianL wrote, you need to run slackpkg update first, because you have old Slackware repository mirrored to local slackpkg database. Update will download fresh package list, with ffox-3.0.10 included.

Ah. I thought he was trying to build Firefox from source with src2pkg -- which also may require a few tweaks for all I know.
