080925 mozilla-firefox 3.0.2 [VL 5.9]
« on: September 25, 2008, 11:41:37 am »

Vector has packaged Mozilla Firefox 3.0.2 for VL 5.9 and VL 5.9.1.  Please note that this is a security patch and bugfix release.  Anyone running Firefox 3.0 or 3.0.1 is advised to upgrade to the new version.

At this point we don't have language packs ready for 3.0.2 as of yet.  Users who prefer Firefox in a language other than English may want to remain at 2.0.0.x until those packages are posted.

Please also note that this package is named mozilla-firefox rather than firefox.  Those wishing to upgrade from a 2.x version will need to remove firefox 2.x with slapt-get, gslapt, or removepkg and then install mozilla-firefox from testing.  If you just do the install you will end up with 2.x and 3.0.2 installed side-by-side.  This prevents those using language packs who do automated installs from ending up with a broken browser.

Package: mozilla-firefox-3.0.2-i686-1vl59.tlz
MD5: fa02173161b43d4bd0d57473744712a7
