Howto : Upgrade from Firefox3.x to 3.5 in Linux
Firefox 3.5 has been released and is available for download, the new version is faster than ever and come with many new features.
Firefox3.5 is based on the Gecko 1.9.1 rendering platform, which has been under development for the past year. Firefox 3.5 offers many changes over the previous version, supporting new web technologies, improving performance and ease of use. Some of the notable features are:
Available in more than 70 languages. (Get your local version!)
Improved tools for controlling your private data, including a Private Browsing Mode.
Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for faster content rendering.
Upgrade your current firefox for Linux to firefox3.5
1- Download firefox3.5 from Firefox website
Go to /tmp
2- Now close all the windows of your current firefox and untar,
tar -jxvf firefox-3.5.tar.bz2
I suppose that your firefox3.x is installed in the folder /usr/lib/firefox-3.x,
make backup of this directory first :
#cp -r /usr/lib/firefox-3.x /usr/lib/firefox-3.x.backup
remove old files with :
#rm -rf /usr/lib/firefox-3.x/*
Now verify first where your current firefox is installed and adjust the command bellow to point the installation to this folder.
In my case /usr/lib/firefox.3.x
cp -avr firefox/* /usr/lib/firefox-3.x/
And is done :)
