Howdy and welcome.
Firefox is only 8.01 when the current version is 15.0.1. Maybe I'm missing something?
Have you hit the update button yet in Gslapt? Firefox 13 should show up.
All I want is a distro that is stable,
Well, wanting a distro that is stable, yet runs the latest released software out there. Either you want one or the other. CentOS or Debian Stable does not run current kernels, libraries, or packages either.
Me. I just play and play. Means I like to break things. So I also run Debian unstable and Debian Testing. Here is a bone for how I installed Firefox 15.0.1 in Vector. You break your install. Not my fault
I don't use it. In fact. I don't use Exaile either. I go with lighter stuff on my gear like xmms or ffmpeg.
I think I have seen you at Puppy Forums which is another distro I run. So, Happy Trails, Rok
