Applications / Firefox 98.0 still while lates...
Last post by Oulik - August 04, 2022, 09:23:22 PM
Hope you can help.

I am running Sparky Linux 7 (Orion Belt) fully updated.
Firefox browser is still on version 98.0, and I know the latest version is 103 at the moment.
Is there something wrong? Do I have to worry?

Thanks. That worked perfect. Librewolf v102 is now installed.

Downgraded librewolf to 102, so you can install it, waiting for the new libs updating.

Removing Firefox does not make any problem.
The problem is with versions of libnss3 and libx11-xcb1, they are to low now, have to wait for updating them from Debian Sid repos soon.

My time was off by several hours in Bios, I fixed that but it did not magically help with installing librewolf... I didn't think it would, but it was worth a try.

I have the following versions of these two dependencies installed:
libnss3         version 2:3.79-1
libx11-xcb1 version 2:1.7.5-1

To my knowledge I have these other possible FF dependencies installed:
libmujs1
libssh-4
libssl1.1

And also are installed on this system should be (as I just checked):
libc6
libgcc-s1
libgssapi-krb5-2
libssl3
zlib1g

The only other thing I can think of although it is far out there is my Bios may possibly be 6hrs ahead of my current time... I should probably check that now.

The system says I already have libnss3 & libX11-xcb installed.

Using Synaptic I reinstalled libx11-xcb then also reinstalled libnss3. Then tried to install Librewolf via Synaptic. Nevertheless this did not work, receiving the same "obsoleted error" I posted in post#1 above.

Is there a correct way to reinstall these 2 "missing" dependencies using the terminal that won't also nuke all of their numerous dependencies?

This is the output I still get from "sudo apt install librewolf":

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 librewolf : Depends: libnss3 (>= 2:3.80~) but 2:3.79-1 is to be installed
             Depends: libx11-xcb1 (>= 2:1.8.1) but 2:1.7.5-1 is to be installed

I don't think I am missing these 2 dependencies, however.

I had deleted the Firefox installation that comes pre-installed with SparkyLinux using the complete removal / purge method. It is possible that this is all the result of me having completely removing the Firefox that comes bundled with SparkyLinux? I ALSO downloaded Firefox-ESR, then uninstalled via complete removal as well. Currently using Brave.

After posting this I will try to find/download the 2 missing dependencies, then attempt to install Librewolf. I will post the result.
