Will it come through you/zen eventually?

 

No.

 

They backport patches but usually don't upgrade versions.

I had to install mozilla-nspr-4.6.3-6.1.i586.rpm and mozilla-nss-3.11.3-3.1.i586.rpm from the same server I got FF2 from. I've had FF2 for a good few weeks now. And you can uninstall those translations if you don't use them. Edited by Neo X1

If your having dependency problems, download four rpm's from the Firefox 2 link. They are mozilla-nspr , mozilla-nss , MozillaFirefox-translations 2, and the MozillaFirefox 2 rpm.

 

Open a terminal then:

rpm -Uvh *.rpm

That should do it. :)

You can just run the official one from Mozilla out of your home directory.

 

This is something you've done with Firefox 2 on Suse 10.1 ??

You can do it on any linux...

 

As long as the dependencies are installed or available.

Nope, just extract the archive to somewhere like ~/firefox.Replace /usr/bin/firefox with a symbolic link pointing at ~/firefox/firefox if you want. It'll work on any modern distro.
