Thanks!

but ironically, there is the newer version at the moment. changes so fast. errors? maybe switching directly to mozilla deb repository to install iceweasel instead?

cheers,

A big issue was fixed: "Firefox displays a black screen at start-up with certain graphics drivers."

thanks Jordan. fortunately the said driver bug does not concern me.

but the only solution to have the latest ff is to install Mozilla compiled one. as a matter of fact it's portable application. moreover this version has auto-update functionality. installation needs only download, extract, new soft link and desktop file.

cheers,

do you have any problems with ff 33? both version functionally are the same. the last one maintains some driver issues (read the realese). seems that case is rather exceptional. if you want to keep always the newest you can install as described above (I'm currently keeping both versions - one from PL repo and one directly from Mozilla). if you install Mozilla's version you do not need Peter and worry about updates. all is done automatically.

cheers,

It is more that firefox is official deliver with PL, so then it is a good point to bring out updates. It keeps the distro alive for the users.
For myself I use Iceweasel ;)

I'd rather prefer one but good and stable.

it's good idea. changes are not so fast for standard Debian compiled ff/iw (of course issues are the same because there is no difference between them). adding Mozzila's Debian repo gives the newest version.
