Thats true, but only for 32bit.

Well, in the meantime you could use a similar SlackBuild to repackage swiftfox, so it would still be easy.

I just did that too. The few lines that needed changing were:

VERSION had to be changed to 3.5
ARCH had to be changed to i486
NUMJOBS had to be changed to -j3 because I only have two cores
cd mozilla had to be changed to cd mozilla-1.9.1
the mozilla-firefox-mimeTypes-fix.diff.gz patch had to be commented out
the package extension had to be changed from txz to tgz

When there will be security issues and/or improvements etc... Pat will release it on slackware 13 as he did in slackware 12.2:

Code:
+--------------------------+
Mon Jun 15 22:14:45 CDT 2009
[...]
patches/packages/mozilla-firefox-3.0.11-i686-1.tgz:
  Upgraded to firefox-3.0.11.
  This fixes some security issues.

As there are 'lots-o' bugreports on the all-fresh-all-new FF 3.5, and there's be a major bugfix announced.. there's 2(or even 3?) options:

- SW:13 is released within a few weeks, no FF 3.5(.1?)

- SW:13 is released within a few months,. FF 3.5(.2?) will be included.

or:

- SW 13 is released without FF 3.5, SW 13.1 will feature FF 3.6.3

Eitherway: it* will be ready, when it's ready


* as in SW:13

It hasn't crashed yet and I've been using ever since the minute it came out.

It's definitely faster, especially on older machines. I just updated to 3.5 on my older laptop and it works a lot faster. On my newer machines I notice that it is faster, but the difference is less noticeable.
