    Nick,

    With the flavours of Linux I have come across, and I believe things like Solaris, FF doesn't prompt you to upgrade. FF upgrades come via the regular software update route of those operating systems - the equivalent of OS X's Software Update.

      By the way the latest Slackware FF packages are crap and broken, which is very disappointing, but downloading and unpacking the binaries from Nightly works like a charm.

        I was on 3.6.24 but after doing an update yesterday, Im on FF10 on mint as you said ....

        FF on linux is always wildly different anyway. I find it unusable on windows but fine on linux.
