Firefox 3.63 is not found when using "slackpkg install"
Dear all,
I want to upgrade Firefox to 3.6.3 since according to Slackware 64 CHANGE LOG:

Mon Apr 5 03:06:19 UTC 2010
patches/packages/mozilla-firefox-3.6.3-x86_64-1_slack13.0.txz: Upgraded.
      This fixes some security issues.
      For more information, see:
      (* Security fix *)

However when I do

slackpkg install firefox
and select the appropriate software in the menu, the scripts throw errors saying

mozila-firefox-3.6.2-...  : Not found
This happens when I use 4 different mirrors.

The latest version should be 3.6.3 instead of 3.6.2. But even so, the 3.6.2 version is not there. Should I keep looking for other mirror that has the available software or do I miss anything?

Did you do 'slackpkg update' first? Maybe you need to check your mirror?

Yeah, do it the right way:

slackpkg update
slackpkg upgrade-all

The last command will pop up a ncurses box listing updates.

yes I did

slackpkg update
slackpkg upgrade-all

Could you point me out the mirrors that has firefox 3.6.3?
