I am running openSUSE 11.3 on my desk. A message says I have to update to Firefox. I clicked on upgrade and have downloaded a file named "firefox - 6.0.2.tar.bz2.

I have extracted the tar file, but could not find a Firefox update script file. I don't want to spoil the Firefox that works, so I'm not blindly run something that I don't know what he'll do. I can't find instructions on how to manually update Firefox, and it will not be upgraded automatically. What is my next step? Can I get help?


You currently have the version of Firefox which is the hallmark of SUSE, and version should be updated via this facility deposits.

You can copy the content of archive tar.bz2 to another folder and create a new launcher to launch the firefox script in this folder to run this version of Firefox with this profile by adding Pei 'profile_name' in the command field.

You must create a new profile if you want to continue to use the version of Firefox 3.6.x

    If there is a problem with the update or permit the best and safest is to download and install firefox:

    3. install the version you downloaded.

  • Diff between orders of tar archive and archive download-SW?

    I need to update switch with file .tar. I've never done this before. I found two commands. But I'm confused what we I can run.


    tarball /xtract tftp:// flash:


    Archive Download-sw / overwrite tftp://

    Please notify. I just want the stand-alone switch with file .tar. Should I use the tarballs or archive download-sw

    I am a still waiting for answer. please help if possible

    You have created the thread at 11:53, and you want a response within 10 seconds (for example)?  Patience.

    Difference between 'archive tar/x' and 'archive download-sw "?

    "archive tar/x" command only Nations United-blocks of IOS.  That's all that.

    'archive download-sw' unpack IOS and you can run commands in option to remove old IOS (for example), change the boot chain with force to restart the unit after no packing ends, or run a MD5 hash check of the LOCATION of the file when the package not implemented, remove OLD IOS, etc..

    It's your choice.

    Some Catalyst switch 'dislikes' him 'archive download-sw' and, in some cases, give the impression that the update of IOS is complete, even if the packaging not still occurs in the background.

  • I have a MBP of 2009 end. I updated the material to 8 GB of ram with an SSD of 240gig. I want to run the new OSX, but is not on the list approved for the update. Anyone know why?

    I have a MBP of 2009 end. I updated the material to 8 GB of ram with an SSD of 240gig. I want to run the new OSX, but is not on the list approved for the update. Anyone know why?

    It is a decision that was made by Apple.  El Capitan is the newest OSX that will support a 2009 MBP.

    This is not uncommon.  My 2006 MBP came with Tiger, but is limited to OSX Snow Leopard.

    Old hardware ends up by becoming obsolete with newer technology.

  • My PC is running processes that are labeled as firefox, but I uninstalled and will find no more files named firefox, but pc cleaners say it is running

    I tried to clean my laptop and keep noticing the process named firefox and tracks slowed down... that surprises me, because I don't have firefox on this laptop, I maybe once, but no more, I checked the list of uninstaller in the Control Panel, is not here, I searched on the c: drive of files named mozilla or firefox and deleted I can't find more and yet it is always in my process list and also seems to be a memory hog. I use toolwiz as my PC cleaner, he sees things in firefox and tons of data from when do privacy cleaning, yet it gives me the message "cant fix firefox works"... whenever I came across a file, I think that can be connected, it is to me that firefox is running shit and it won't let me delete some things that I think can be the question...

    On the process tab of the task to the top manager in the menu bar, click View > select columns and add "Image path name. This will show where the firefox.exe process is launched on the hard drive, and I hope that will point to a specific program. If the location is suspicious (for example, the Temp folder) I would suspect malware. Note: you may need to use the button at the bottom of the tab "show processes from all users".

  • Use Firefox all the time, but on the page where it tells you what plug-ins are oudated there is a message saying that I do not meet the requirements to run FF.

    I have an iMac. Mac OSX... Version 10.5.8 I had Firefox installed for a long time and use it more often than Safari these last time. However, when I'm on the FF page where it tells you what plug-ins are very good, and which are outdated (with a warning), at the top of the page, there is a message saying that my computer "does not meet the requirements to run Firefox. And yet I have it and use it! Maybe the message actually means that I can't upgrade to the latest version? But also I don't know if I should go ahead and try to download plug-ins up to date. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Do a cleaning (re) install and delete the folder of the program Firefox (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\).

    Download a new copy of Firefox and save the file to the desktop.

    Uninstall your current version of Firefox, if possible.

  • Can the "first run after update of Firefox" (aka. "What's New" and "Add-on compatibility check") be disabled?

    We intend to deploy an update to Firefox on our campus. The question I have is this: after the update, the "compatibility of the add-on Checker" appears, then the 'What's new' page appears during the first boot after the update. In this case: we use Deep Freeze to prevent kids to do any mischief based on software on the machines. But if we push the update at night, during maintenance windows, they will be frozen in the pre-first-time-run mode. So, whenever a student starts the PC after that, they will get the popup of compatibility both the "What's new" page

    Is there a way I can disable that during the upgrade, so that students will not have to click on these 2 points away? I would like for Firefox just silently disable incompatible modules and do not display the page "news". I found ways to do it, but they involve editing omni.jar and others. I'd rather have a formal, documented way to do this.

    Thank you!!

    Well, eventually nothing worked, except all the settings I wanted to put in part of mozilla.cfg. When I added your suggestion, and one I found on the web to disable add-on compatibility check, I finally have a Firefox that loads directly to the homepage, even after the upgrade.

    Here's what my mozilla.cfg file contains (to 6.0.2):

    // Disable any auto-updates.
    lockPref("app.update.enabled", false);
    lockPref("extensions.update.enabled", false);
    lockPref("browser.search.update", false);
    lockPref("browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone", "ignore");
    lockPref("extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0", false);

    Of course, I must make the byteshift-13 at it, but copy the Core\ file and the file firefox.js to Core\Defaults\Pref\ the round is played.

    Thanks for the help!
