[solved] How to update Firefox in Crux
Well, I have finally found a solution and I'm posting it here in case anyone else has the same problem.
1) Go to the Mozilla site and download the latest firefox binary.
2) Unpack it (it's a bzipped tarball) and give the directory a suitable version-specific name such as firefox-9.
3) Working as root, move the directory into /usr/lib.
4) remove the link /usr/bin/firefox and recreate it to point to /usr/lib/firefox-9/firefox.
And that's it. After you have tested it, you can remove the /usr/lib/firefox directory that prt-get created.
The only disadvantage of doing it this way is that prt-get will still think you're using the old version so you must keep a lock on it to stop it trying to update."I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"
