  1. This has been very useful. I have really searching for very long until I came to this post. Now I am able to run firefox 8 on my Cent OS 6.

    Thank you very much.

  2. Worked great in PUIAS 6.1 too.

  3. Does not work as written for Fedora 13.

    ## Remi Dependency on Fedora 14, Fedora 13, Fedora 12 ##

    I’ll try doing an update to my system…

    • Hi Susan,

      Thanks for the notification. Actually yes, there is no more RPMFusion repositories for Fedora 12 and Fedora 13. So try to skip this RPMFusion part and install just Remi repository directly, with following command:

      rpm -Uvh http://rpms.famillecollet.com/remi-release-13.rpm

      Then continue installation normally.

      And if you could confirm is this working normally? I update then this guide and other guides too.

  4. Gracias, funciona perfecto en fedora 14.

  5. Thank you for your helpful guide. I love CentOS 6 more than anything else, unfortunately however, it is very difficult for me to get my ZTE 3G modem to work in it….so I had to go back to Fedora, no more ubuntu….

  6. Installed this onto CentOS 6.1 as root. Works fine if you launch it as root. However if you launch as a user it still launches the old version. Even after I have completed removed the old firefox 3 RPM. Still trying to track down why this is:

    yum list firefox
    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit
    Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
    * base: http://ftp.osuosl.org
    * epel: mirror.chpc.utah.edu

    firefox.x86_64 8.0-1.el6.remi @remi
    Available Packages
    firefox.i686 3.6.24-3.el6.centos updates

    • Hi Brad,

      Are you running 32-bit (i686) or 64-bit (x86_64) system?

      Your yum list firefox command shows that you have firefox.i686 3.6.24-3.el6.centos available and firefox.x86_64 8.0-1.el6.remi installed…

      • 64 bit.

        rpm -qa | grep firefox
        firefox-8.0-1.el6.remi.x86_64

        I completed removed firefox from my system. Would not launch any longer. Then installed the firefox-8.0-1.el6.remi.x86_64 rpm. When I launch firefox as a user it still launches the 3.6.24 x86_64 version. However when I su to root it launches the 8.0.1 version. I modified the firefox script to turn on debugging and here is the exec line:

        /usr/lib64/firefox/run-mozilla.sh /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox

        Which is identical to the root exec line.

        Additional debugging:
        /usr/lib64/firefox/run-mozilla.sh -g /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox

        /usr/lib64/firefox/run-mozilla.sh -g /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox
        MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/lib64/firefox
        LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib64/firefox:/usr/lib64/firefox/plugins:/usr/lib64/firefox
        DISPLAY=:0.0
        DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib64/firefox:/usr/lib64/firefox
        LIBRARY_PATH=
        SHLIB_PATH=/usr/lib64/firefox:/usr/lib64/firefox

        ADDON_PATH=

        MOZ_TOOLKIT=
        moz_debug=1
        moz_debugger=
        moz_debugger_args=

        I’ve done a lot of debugging of startup scripts, etc. And still can’t see where it launches this version from.

        Thanks!

        • Hi again Brad,

          Ok, this sounds that the old version of Firefox is running on background…so that’s why normal user always starts old version and root new. If reason is this, then try following:

          killall firefox
          

          and then try to start it again…?

          Or alternatively logout/log in…or even reboot your box? :)

  7. hi,

    I’m using F16 x86_64 and firefox x86_64 8.0-3.fc16 (says yum list firefox)

    today on http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=279519 appeared an update

    I tried to update firefox with “yum update firefox”, but yum says “no packages marked for update”

    Am I missing something or doing wrong?

    thanks

    regards

    • Hi RFederer,

      If you want to install Firefox 9 on Fedora 16 now, then you have to download that build manually and just install it…

      I update this guide when it appears updates-testing repo / remi repo.

      • thanks for your quick reply,

        all right, then…looking forward to your new guide :)

        gl

        • You are welcome!

          I think that the Firefox 9 is coming soon on updates-testing repo… :)

  8. Hi, first of all thanks for this guide & this is very useful especially for new linux users like me, ok now I’ve installed firefox 9.0 as per instructions in RHEL SERVER 6.2, when I launched from the command line it was launched, but when I try to create shortcuts in main menu & desktop it didn’t work. So I was able to use it only by launching from command line “/opt/firefox/firefox”, now after I restarted the system I’m getting the old dreaded error of “/opt/firefox/firefox: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory” for which I couldn’t find any solution on the internet so that I could install firefox in my linux system until I come to this post.

    So can you suggest me on the possible reason of firefox not working after system restart & how to get rid off libstdc++.so.6 error

    • Hi Satish,

      If your install Firefox with this guide on Red Hat (RHEL) 6.2, then you should have/run /usr/bin/firefox not /opt/firefox/firefox…?

  9. great guide, thanks a lot!!!

    • You are welcome! :) Soon you can get Firefox 9 also from f16-updates / f15-updates repo…

      • is there any difference?

        I mean, I’m using fc16.x86_64 and yum says I installed this:

        Firefox.x86_64 9.0-2.fc17 @rawhide

        for the next update it’s pretty simple, just using:

        yum –enablerepo=rawhide update firefox

        Is there any danger using rawhide repo, fc becoming unstable?

        regards

        • Actually you could just use your Firefox, without updating it from rawhide repo. If example Firefox.x86_64 9.0-4.fc16 build is first build on Fedora 16 updates repo, then it should override your Firefox.x86_64 9.0-2.fc17 version just with normal yum update or yum update firefox, because it’s newer version… :)

          If you update your Firefox using rawhide, then next version is soon Firefox 10 beta and so on…so rawhide version might be latest stable or totally unstable version… ;)

          You could check Fedora Firefox builds from here. Example currently newest build is Firefox.x86_64 9.0-3.fc17 / Firefox.x86_64 9.0-3.fc16, but fc16 build is still marked as f16-updates-candidate and f16-updates-pending, so it’s not updating your Firefox now, only if it’s moved f16-updates repo.

          • thanks for the infos :)

            like you said, I’ll try to update to Firefox.x86_64 9.0-4.fc16 over yum update firefox if it’s moved to f16-updates repo…

            regards

  10. Works like a charm!

  11. I have just installed Fedora 16 (64 bit), plus Firefox 9 has installed and all updates applied. It seems to work ok, apart from the problem none of the many Firefox plugins can be installed. I usually find they do install under other O/s versions, but on Fedora 16, they won’t even attempt to download.
    Is there another method to install Firefox plugins ?

    Do I need to add my user account to administration group?

    • Just found my own answer.
      For each plugin link, I need to right click it and choose open in new tab.
      Then the new tab actually runs the download and installs the plugin.

      Slight bug I think in the way Firefox 9 works links.

      Firefox 9 also seems to jump from one of my screens to the other when firefox is restarted.
      I have my main screen as the VGA port and the secondary screen on DVI.

      When I restart Firefox after adding a plugin or other, Firefox is not opening up again on the same screen it was running on, (even my default screen which is on the VGA port of the graphics card), instead firefox isjumping to the other output screen.

      Then if I right click on the Firefox title bar and click on unmaximise, firefox minimises to the the other screen.
      weird

  12. It happens that we have to re-register the damned java plugin for each machine that have upgraded its firefox.

    I’d say do not upgrade to firefox9 unless you can afford the downtime or the oracle and Mozilla team produce an automated solution .

    • Hi tony,

      Really? I have upgraded some Firefox installations to Firefox 9 version and all existing Java (plugin) installation works ok…

      • I think he could be refering to the 64-bit versions.

        • Hi chen,

          I have of course upgraded 64-bit systems and no problems at all.

  13. Thanks a lot! It works great! Great explanation!

  14. yum –enablerepo=updates-testing update firefox on Fedora 15
    What you posted is a waste of time

    • Hi Palmer,

      Thanks for note, tested and fixed guide… ;)

  15. Hi,
    will this work on Centos 5.7?

    • Hi Rod,

      Sorry, Firefox 9 is not working on CentOS 5.7. Enterprise Linux 5 is just too old to run Firefox 9.

      Here is Firefox 9 minimum system requirements on Linux…
      Firefox will not run at all without the following libraries or packages:
      GTK+ 2.10 or higher
      GLib 2.12 or higher
      Pango 1.14 or higher
      X.Org 1.0 or higher (1.7 or higher is recommended)
      libstdc++ 4.3 or higher

  16. thanks a lot !

  17. This works as long as you do not have yum-priorities plugin installed. Usually CentOS-Base will be very high priority (1) and other repositories including Remi will be on much lower priority (>20). In that case the latest version of Firefox will be invisible.

    What you need to do is set Remi repository to the same priority level as CentOS-Base repository. After that use System -> Administration -> Add/Remove software.

  18. Works great for me, thanks a lot for this detailed instruction!

  19. Hi. I just did the update on Fedora 14 and it seems to work fine, thanks for posting these instructions. But I have a question. During the update process I got the message “Warning: RPMDB altered outside of yum.” What does that mean? thanks. (PS: am not a techie, sorry)

    • Hi oryza,

      It is nothing serious, it just mean that you have installed something with rpm command… :)

    • Hi Arnab,

      You have to update your nspr package to 4.8.8 version. And actually yum do it for you automatically, if you have RHEL repo enabled?

      Could you please post output of following command:

      yum repolist all
  21. Many thanks! :)
    Now Works Great also for FF10 in CentOS6.

    • Hi Davide,

      Yes, that’s true and I update this guide to Firefox 10 very soon…I was waiting Fedora builds, but now also those are also available… ;)

  22. Hi there.
    Thanks for this info!

    Would it be able to install FireFox versions prior to v10?

    Thanks!
    Werner

    • Hi Werner,

      You are welcome! :)

      Do you have some reason why you want to install earlier versions?

  23. Great!

  24. Works great with CentOS 6.2!

    Thanks!

    any other ideas how to get this firefox on centos 6.2 ?

  28. Thx JR,
    you are the best!

    Cheers

  29. This broken .. I already had the epel repo .. and remi-release installed fine .. however, the link to firefox from remi repo is broken ..

    I am on SL6.1_x64 .. any suggestions?

    exact error is:
    =======================
    Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/6.1/remi/mirror error was

    Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: remi. Please verify its path and try again
    ====================

    • Hi Goon,

      This problem is actually with Remi repo and Scientific Linux. Remi repo uses $releasever variable and on SL, it is 6.1, 6.2 etc and repo urls works just with number 6.

      So howto fix this, run following command:

      sed -i 's/$releasever/6/g' /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo

      Then try again, is it working? :)

  30. Thank you. It worked like a charm :)

  31. thx! another one “thank you!” because I had many difficulties in installing firefox 10.xx in fedora 14!

    • Hi Dix,

      You could try to run:

      yum clean all

      And try again. Is it working then?

  34. I would like to learn how to update vlc to version 2.0

  35. Thanks again for your guides. Do you know of any way to install Firefox 12 on Fedora 16?

    • Hi Jonathan,

      On Fedora 16 just run:

      yum update firefox
       
      ## OR ##
       
      yum update
      • At the time that he posted that question, an .RPM was not yet in the repository, which is one reason (amongst others) that it’s a shame that you didn’t let my prior comment become public. (Not that I’d be shocked if this one was deleted as well.)

        • Hi Daniel,

          This site gets several thousands of comments every single day (most are spam) and all suspicious comments are filtered as spam, if certain conditions are met. If you use fake/spammers email address, post links, advertise on comments etc. those comments are very high probability marked as spam and deleted. Also Stop Forum Spam and Project Honey Pot excellent databases are used to fight against comment spam.

          So this might be reason why your comment will never become public. I apologize, but this job is not possible to do manually.

  36. Yes, that is correct. The day after I posted here FF 12 showed up in the repos.

    • Yes, it’s true. I just checked it with YUM today… :)

      I will update this guide soon, normally if you want get latest version as soon as possible then I recommend to use rawhide repo or updates-testing repo. Btw. very minor changes on Firefox 12.

  37. Must be minor, didn’t really notice anything. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the version numbers and want the very latest and greatest.

    • Current Firefox rapid release cycle is copied from Google Chrome / Chromium. The only thing that is a different way is that the Mozilla (users) keep big noise about the Firefox version numbers, but Google Chrome users rarely even know what version they are using, and Google Chrome is always top notch. :)

      Nowadays, almost the only things what I wait from new browser versions / releases are speed and lightness. :)

  38. For a time, Red Hat was unconscionably slow about supporting newer versions of Firefox, and I therefore began a series at my 'blog about installing the latest stable release on RHEL (and clones thereof) from the binary archive. (One does not have to chose between using an RPM and building from source!) The procedure therein would work just fine for Fedora, but there is so little lag between when Mozilla.com provides the binaries and the Fedora Project releases an RPM that I haven’t bothered to mention that.

  39. Hmmmm…had trouble with ‘rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm‘, kept returning a HTTP 404 error.
    Got it to install anyway, just found that part weird.

  40. Thnks Bro for this seful post……………………
    I will upgrade my firefox browser in rhel6 32bit……..
    It was really a usefull post thanks once again……..

  41. I have installed firefox 10.0.5 on redhat 5.8 successfully by following this doc. It is very helpful. But one issue coming up is that when I run $firefox, nothing is happening, the firefox browser is not launched, but i can tell the firefox is running. I am not sure if i need to start x-window or not, if need, how to do? I am new to linux. So your help is highly appreciated.

    • Hi lili,

      Actually command is just firefox, not $firefox, and yes you will need X, if you want to use graphical programs. You could try to start X simply with following command (if you have it installed):

      startx
  42. Does this work for RHEL 5.3 ? and also, which firefox version do you recommend to install?

    • Hi felipe,

      This is not working for RHEL 5.3. You need RHEL 5.8 and Firefox 10 is your only option. Firefox 10 for RHEL 5.8 is Red Hat maintained package.

  43. Can you use this method or a similar method to install Firefox Beta? I’ve got Firefox 14 on Fedora 17, so can I use it to get Firefox 15b?

  44. Not able to upgrade Firefox v3.6.9 to Firefox v15.0.1. Below are the errors coming up while trying the process as mentioned above. I am using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.0 (Santiago)

    You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem
    You could try running: rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest

    Please help

    • Hi Ajesh,

      You need working RHN support to get it installed.

  45. ok

  46. Hi JR,

    I followed your step given above but I failed to update firefox in my CentOS 6.3 64bit, with the error result when trying ‘yum –enablerepo=remi list firefox’:
    $ sudo yum –enablerepo=remi list firefox
    [sudo] password for ld:
    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, product-id, subscription-manager
    Updating certificate-based repositories.
    Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
    Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/$releasever/remi/mirror error was
    14: PYCURL ERROR 22 – “The requested URL returned error: 404″

    Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: remi

    is there anything i can do to fix? please help.

    • Hi Daniel,

      You could try again if it was temporary down, because it returned 404.

      If you still have same problem then you can try following:

      yum clean all
       
      yum --enablerepo=remi list firefox

      If still no luck, then check, could you access following access directly:
      http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/6/remi/mirror

  47. This works perfectly on my Fedora 14! I have been stuck with firefox 3 until I found your article. Thanks a lot!

  48. Thanks ! It works perfectly :)

  49. thank u .

    • Hi tuhin,

      I assume that you are using RHEL 6, but do you have working RHN subscription?
