Hi TinyCore Team,

I'm trying to use firefox_getLatest.tcz  (latest version) on tce 13.1 but it stopped  with this message:

It's been like that for about a week or so. I got around it by editing /usr/local/bin/firefox_getLatest.sh and changing this line:
Code: [Select]
ffdownload="http://download.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/34.0.5/linux-i686/en-US/firefox-34.0.5.tar.bz2"to this
Code: [Select]

Yes I discovered that yesterday. Actually download.cdn.mozilla.net still works, Mozilla just removed the mozilla.org directory, so I changed that line to:

Code: [Select]

But I was too tired last night to package it up and submit a new extension, I'll probably get to it later today.

It also managed to make my root FS read-only somehow after the download failed, forcing a reboot, after a failed attempt to rebuild mydata.tgz, which still copied the last one to mydatabk.tgz, so it wasn't found at the next boot, which caused me a lot more confusion because then I could no longer access it remotely. I should try to work out where that went so wrong as well really.

As it happens the old URL has suddenly started working again for me, but anyway an updated extension with /mozilla.org removed from the URL has been submitted.

It also now exits if the download fails rather than trying to continue regardless.
