Post Updating Firefox


I'm using Slackware 12.2, the version of Firefox that I'm using is 3.0.4.
I want to update Firefox, but there is no accessible link for update under help menu.

Edit, as root, /etc/slackpkg/mirrors (uncomment, remove # from one 12.2 mirror), then run in a terminal:
slackpkg update
slackpkg upgrade-all

Smile update

Removed # from one of the mirror and did 'slackpkg update', the updating process started. But I'm confuse, what I'm updating. Only Firefox or all
the software installed or the Slackware version.

slackpkg update checks the ChangeLogs for updates for all stock Slackware packages you have installed, including Firefox.
slackpkg upgrade-all then gives you the choice to install all or some of those updates.
