So I guess I just wait to it are ready.
Will come with the normal updates to Ubuntu also:
http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/11/firefox-8-officially-released/

I am not sure if it's so good idea to launch new version to fast(translated):

Google Chrome have security problems when they not have time to test so much.

Not yet. i was thinking of trying it since it is taking too long to update our FF Smiley. i was thinking they will delay it till we get 9.0 out.

However, if 8.0 is being worked upon, we can wait for a few days.

In this regard, rolling distros have an edge, however, the negative side is too many updates on a daily basis.  Shocked

If you need to install the latest versions of Thunderbird or Firefox, just download the .tar.gz file from the Mozilla website.

First of all, you need them installed on your Pardus! Now open up the /usr/lib/MozillaFirefox or MozillaThunderbird as root. Delete all the files within the folder and decompress all the files within the .tar.gz you downloaded. Now run your Thunderbird or Firefox as usual, and check the version!

PS: All the patches and tiny regulations on the program are missing (like font rendering, etc.). You need to wait for the official Pardus package release for that.

PS-2: Please remember to DELETE all the files within the /usr/lib/MozillaXXX folders before you upgrade your program via PiSi, otherwise you will not be able to run your program (when the upgrade is released).

My current advise to build your own PiSi-package can be found >HERE< Grin
I still have to test this and will come back on this after the test.

You already mentioned the big disadvantage yourself and they are

My method prevents from making a mess out of it because it's all und PiSi-control.
And pisi makes a list of all installed files which is used in case of a set back (--reinstall) or removal of the package etc.
This is one of the reasons I want to do all of my package manipulations under the umbrella of PiSi. Wink

To use Pardus as a rolling release, just use http://packages.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2011/devel/i686/pisi-index.xml.xz as package repository.

And here is an example how this ^^^ isn't always successful.
After installing firefox-9.0-164 (from devel + nss-3.13.1-45) I get:
Quote
atolboo@pardus2011 ~ $ firefox

(process:1515): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion `sys_page_size == 0' failed
/usr/lib/MozillaFirefox/firefox: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/MozillaFirefox/libxul.so: undefined symbol: gdk_window_get_visual
And FF will not start.
Maybe there is something wrong with the package or they forgot a
Code:
<Dependency versionFrom="number">name</Dependency>
in pspec.xml Wink

Have you added the "devel" repository or have you just downloaded and installed the package ? Have you mixed stable and developpment repositories ?

Firefox dependancies are :
fontconfig gtk2 pango cairo libIDL startup-notification dbus-glib hunspell libproxy nspr
nss libevent libvpx atk jpeg libXt gconf pixman libXext freetype alsa-lib gnome-vfs
libnotify gdk-pixbuf libXrender


I am using Firefox 9 from the 12/09/2011 update.

As you can read from my post I have nss-3.13.1-45 and firefox-9.0-164 installed from the devel repo.
And the exact <RuntimeDependencies> are:
Code:
            <Dependency>fontconfig</Dependency>
            <Dependency versionFrom="2.18.5">gtk2</Dependency>
            <Dependency>pango</Dependency>
            <Dependency versionFrom="1.8.8">cairo</Dependency>
            <Dependency>libIDL</Dependency>
            <Dependency>startup-notification</Dependency>
            <Dependency>dbus-glib</Dependency>
            <Dependency>hunspell</Dependency>
            <Dependency versionFrom="0.4.0">libproxy</Dependency>
            <Dependency versionFrom="4.8.9">nspr</Dependency>
            <Dependency versionFrom="3.13.1">nss</Dependency>
            <Dependency>libevent</Dependency>
            <Dependency>libvpx</Dependency>
            <Dependency>atk</Dependency>
            <Dependency>jpeg</Dependency>
            <Dependency>libXt</Dependency>
            <Dependency>gconf</Dependency>
            <Dependency>pixman</Dependency>
            <Dependency>libXext</Dependency>
            <Dependency>freetype</Dependency>
            <Dependency>alsa-lib</Dependency>
            <Dependency>gnome-vfs</Dependency>
            <Dependency>libnotify</Dependency>
            <Dependency>gdk-pixbuf</Dependency>
            <Dependency>libXrender</Dependency>
And as you can see some of them have a versionFrom= requirement.
That's also the reason I (had to) installed nss-3.13.1-45.
Maybe this list is not 100%
