Firefox 115.0.2 in TC-13
« on: July 15, 2023, 03:14:51 PM »
Hello,

I tried to build a custom .TCZ package with Firefox 115 in TC-13.  Before building package I copied firefox files manually to /usr/bin/firefox, and Firefox appears to run fine with a little bug when change settings for download folder.  Only needs gtk3.tcz as dependency.

After building firefox package and load with tce-load -i -c, Firefox can not start and no icon is showed in command bar.  The .png icon file is into pixmaps common folder and i created the .desktop file into applications common folder.  I don't want to use Google Chrome.

Anyone can help??

Thank you.  :-)

Hi AlejandroPadrino
Use the  firefox_getLatest.tcz  extension:
http://tinycorelinux.net/13.x/x86/tcz/firefox_getLatest.tcz.info

Run:
Code: [Select]
firefox-getLatest.sh -eand it will download and package the latest extended support release.

Hello Rich,

I used that .TCZ package (x32) to get firefox in first instance.  It fails.  Only download .TCZ extensions, but can not load Firefox.  URL did not exist, I tried to open in browser too.  After this fail, I go to mozilla web page to download Firefox x32 Linux, and then decompress the package to get Firefox Files.  :-(

From "URL did not exist" I guess you might be using an old version from before Mozilla changed the download location for the Firefox binaries.

The latest firefox_getLatest extension for TC14 should also work fine in TC13. Download it here and see if it works better than the version you've been using.

Also "firefox-getLatest.sh -e" might download Firefox version 102.13.0esr because both 102esr and 115esr are being maintained at the moment. Run it without -e, or use -m and specify "115.0.2esr" at the prompt for the 115 ESR version.
