Today I am posting a Trick to Install Firefox 5 on Your Linux Box.
I have Successfully tested this trick on Fedora 15.
Before Following This trick i would like to tell you that, We’ll use Non-Standard Repository for this, Non-Standard means this repository is not from any official Fedora or Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
If you are sure and you want to perform this then Please take a back up of your all Mozilla Firefox’s Current Version, like BookMarks and all that stuff.
So You have to Use this on your own risk. If you are not ready to take the risk then Don’t move ahead.
Fedora 14 and Fedora 13 Users can also Install Firefox 5 by using same method but for the same Fedora 13 and Fedora 14 users have to install following RPMs, It might work or not, I haven’t tested this but should work.
