Vanilla Firefox (Aurora) Slackbuild
 
I'm sorry if this is a really stupid question, but I've been googling for a while and come up empty, so here goes:

On the machine I'm on at work (win-xp, unfortunately), I just installed FF Aurora-19a2, and it seems to fix the slowness with FF 17 and 18, and is possibily even faster than 15 and 16! Even though we worshippers of Bob and Pat tend to look down on self-proclaimed alpha code, this seems stable, so I'm wondering if there's a slackbuild that just packages up the existing binaries released by Mozilla?

Thanks, Mike

why don't you modify from the current version of Mozilla Slackbuild?

Have a quick read of my latest-firefox script first (just so that you can convince yourself that it doesn't do anything crazy). Once you are happy with it you can force it to do a binary repackage of Aurora, rather than the latest stable version, as follows:

Code:

$ wget https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-aurora/firefox-19.0a2.en-US.linux-i686.tar.bz2 -O firefox-19.0a2.tar.bz2
$ wget http://www.panix.com/~ruari/latest-firefox
$ VERSION=19.0a2 bash latest-firefox

Note: You can switch the wget request from firefox-19.0a2.en-US.linux-i686.tar.bz2 to firefox-19.0a2.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 if you run Slackware64

Willysr: Because it's designed to build from source, so first it would need chopping down to the installs, and then making sure I'm not screwing up any depencencies (since there were some significant changes with 14.0, and I know I don't know them all). However, I thought I found what I was looking for with the Opera slackbuild (http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/1...era.SlackBuild) until...

Ruario: WOW! You really went all out on that script! This late at night, I'll leave it until tomorrow, but that looks like exactly the thing I'm looking for...although I'm still wondering about all the icons and stuff...

Thanks again, guys, and again, sorry for the stupid question...:\

The Desktop icons? They should be handled.

Seemed like a reasonable question to me. ;)
