This email contains important information regarding upgrading Firefox 3
for Fedora users.
The Speakup Modified continues to make recent builds of Firefox 3 Beta
available. However, a recent change in how these files are named has
broken the automated upgrading procedure. There is a simple workaround
which we explain below. You will need perform this procedure only once.
But, you will need to perform this procedure in order to upgrade your
Firefox 3 to the latest release from the Speakup Modified Fedora.
If you do not have Firefox 3 installed, you can ignore this post.
Here's how to upgrade:
1.) Become root on your system and issue the command:
rpm -e --nodeps firefox*
2.) Now, still as root, issue the command:
yum install firefox.i386
This will install our most current build of Firefox 3 Beta, based on the
nightly release from November 27. Thereafter, future releases will be
picked up in the customary fashion with yum.
Please note that we no longer build Firefox 3 for Fedora 7. Users of F-7
can, however, use our F-8 Firefox rpms.
