    Default Firefox update

    I noticed that the version of Firefox in BT4 beta is 3.0.5. I don't seem to be able to update it to the latest version - 3.0.10. Any ideas?

    I suggest finding out why you can't update it. Once you know that, you can update it.

    FIRST, bring up firefox,
    Help-> check for updates
    ---and no updates were found --- returned

    Also, I don't seem to be able to remove firefox using:
    apt-get remove firefox
    then try to re-install it.

    well for some reason firefox check updates has problems from jumping from an old version to a new version like what your problem is 3.0.5 to 3.10. did you do a check updates or did you use a command prompt with "apt-get update"
    then "apt-get upgrade"?

    (just watch out for the kde thing though)

    I tried both:
    -check for update
    - apt-get update

    None of them work. can't do a "apt-get upgrade" , after that startx won't work.

    Have you tried downloading the source and compiling it locally?
