    Update Firefox?

    Hello,
    Please bear with me, I don't know Linux well.
    I have Knoppix 8.1 on usb. Firefox tells me it is critically out of date.
    I ran apt-get update
    I input to terminal:

    knoppix@Microknoppix:~/Desktop$ sudo apt-get install firefox

    and got:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies: firefox : Depends: zlib1g (>= 1:1.2.11.dfsg) but 1:1.2.8.dfsg-5 is to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    Could anyone suggest what to do?

    I recommend you to download manually Firefox, extract the file and execute the "Firefox" file inside this folder.

    Hi

    Firefox and Iceweasel are more and more somewhat "difficult" to hand with...


    IF the PROCESSOR is "lite" OLD

    So verify first the compatibility of your processor with "relatively new versions.

    On the other side it is not much recommended to "UPDATE" KNOPPIX (or something

    inside)....for "a long stability of the system".

    I believe I have the same question. Is it possible to update Firefox with the Synaptic Package Manager?
