You're correct that was a typo on my part.
Let's see if the directions for this can be made simpler.  If a person 
can use an editor edit /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc and locate the SOURCE= 
line with slint in it.  On that line, change 14.2 to testing then save 
the file and exit.
That is what I did after a re-install and had only firefox as an update 
and I went into lxde and ran firefox after the upgrade and the 
accessibility problems I had with firefox yesterday disappeared.
So for now, I think we're all golden.
