According to Firefox, I'm running ver 1.0.2. Yet, if I go to https://addons.update.mozilla.org/extensions/showlist.php?application=firefox&version=1.0&os=Windows&category=Bookmarks

it states that I'm not running the current version 1.0.4 and I need to upgrade to that version before I can access the extensions. I haven't a clue why in the URL above it shows WinBlows.

If I try yum upgrade firefox, it says there are no updates.

Am I doing something wrong or have the updates just not made it into the yum sites yet?

You are missing the updates released repo. BTW, "upgrade" probably won't be around much longer. Use "update."

Thanks David. I added /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates-released.repo. Then per your suggestion,

[root moe yum.repos.d]# yum update firefox
Repository updates-released already added, not adding again
Setting up Update Process

And it downloaded firefox-1.0.4.

Now the question is, if updates-released was already there, why didn't it work?

Thanks,
Mike
