How to upgrade Firefox on Fedora
I'm currently running Fedora v.7 and have Firefox v.2. I'm trying to upgrade to the latest version of Firefox and having problems doing so. I tried the cmd: yum update firefox and got the results listed below:
fedora 100% |=========================| 2.1 kB 00:00
updates 100% |=========================| 2.3 kB 00:00
Setting up Update Process
Could not find update match for firefox
No Packages marked for Update
I then downloaded the latest version of Firefox from the website, but there is no .rpm file or .bz2 file which I can use to do the install. Could you please provide me with instructions on how I can do the upgrade?
