It's too bad these options don't work.

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# update-firefox firefox-50.0.2
Checking internet ...
Downloading: update-firefox-live  DONE
Verifying archive integrity...  100%   All good.
Uncompressing Porteus browser updater  100%  

 Getting latest firefox version ... 
[PASS] Latest version: firefox-51.0b6
 Checking for Porteus ... 
[PASS] Distro is Porteus

The latest version avilable is:  firefox-51.0b6 
 Would you like to download it? [y/n]

root@porteus:/home/guest# update-firefox firefox-50.0.2.tar.bz2

And yes I know manually downloading firefox-50.0.2.tar.bz2 and moving it to the /tmp/ folder works. :)

Yes, I like this too. Install latest stable version, maybe:

update-firefox stable

Even better, auto activate xzm and clean up afterl. (ie. Delete txz file to reduce RAM.)

Same for update-flash also.

The way I use Porteus, PC has no drive in him. Just boot copy2ram, connect wireless,
and use web, with save nothing. Terrific!
