Update firefox-29.0 and thunderbird-24.5.0 to the 7.0 untested repo...

PS: For firefox-29.0 need new libvpx-1.3.0 which is available in the testing repo too. But for 64bit users, you need to manually remove libvpx-20120108 first.

On installing Firefox 29.0 on VL 7.0 Light, gdm would no longer start. Problem was icu4c 53.1 was installed as a dep and that didn't work with gdm 2.20.11.

Removed icu4c 53.1 and Firefox 29.0. Installed icu4c 4.4.1 and Firefox 28.0. Now working ok, but back to where I started.

Just looked in 7.0 32-bit's repos. For firefox, only 19.0 and what looks like this build of 29.0 are available. If I'm alone in the dependency problem, then it's no problem. I have it handled for myself.

FWIW, I've moved to 7.1 for a while, but regularly return to 7.0 where the firefox-esr that was dropped into untested (24.5.0esr) is my browser. No problems with that, but the regular purge of untested must have removed it from the repos.

it's just a matter of triggering the build again, but the package needs to be moved to the stable repos withing 2 weeks of the build

Has anyone either
1) Had the same problem with Firefox 29 on VL 7.0?  or
2) Installed it on 7.0 and everything seems to be OK?

Thanks.

I don't know as much as hata_ph about the problems upgrading 7.0 past Firefox 28.0, but the little I do know tends to make me agree that it's probably not the right thing to pursue. This is being posted using the recent build of 24.6.0-esr which is fine so far. If it's decided not to continue updating Firefox's main line of releases for 7.0, shouldn't Firefox 29 be removed and 28 be returned?

I will remove ff-29.0 from the testing repo and ff-28.0 will be the last firefox package for VL 7.0
sorry for the late reply...
