This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

OK, i am using suse 10 with firefox 1.0.7. I want to upgrade to firefox 1.5. I have been to the firefox site and downloaded the src but all this does is allow me to run firefox from that directory (not upgrade). How is everyone else running firefox 1.5 and suse 10?
Thanks for the link! Worked great, except for one annoyance...

rpm -Uhv tells me I can't install because there are some dependencies between ff 1.0.6 and mozilla translations 1.0.6 (my system is in french). Do I need to uninstall ff and mozilla translations first ?

I did the steps described by onjoo, but the Firefox extension manager is not working. It reports the extensions I had previously installed (from 1.07), but will not uninstall or update them. It gives a message that the extension will be uninstalled (if I choose that) when Firefox is started, but nothing happens. Any ideas?
This is just a guess, but it sounds like a Firefox problem not related to SUSE in particular. Have you tried the mozillazine.org forums or knowledge-base? It might be possible to use Firefox safe-mode to remove the offending extensions.
